    I just found this youtube video and it looks like by installing an app called openappmkt, you install a market where you can download cydia apps that work on a non-jailbroken ios7. This is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF9D0taQQjk
    Is this for real???

    SCAM

    Cydia apps could never work on a phone that is not jailbroken since you do not have root access - which is required.

    But by clicking on the scammers website/YouTube page, you generated some revenue for the scammer :(

    I reported this hoping the mods will Wasteland it so the scammer does not gain any additional revenue.

    It's a scam. Nothing to see here.

    I'm with dhlizard. Hope this goes to wasteland soon so this guy gets no attention.

    Why?
    Would you believe a kid with a wild story/idea like that or an adult presenting it?
    I think I wouldn't believe a kid but would lean more to believe a professional sounding adult instead.
    Either way, its a scam to generate clicks/views and cash revenue to the poster of the video.

    So you would believe that a kid would develop something able to bypass Apple's system and create something that could be downloaded to install Cydia and download JB apps on an iPhone?

    There are many kids in youtube showing what they've learned, so it doesnt have to be him the hacker.

    I don't think OpenAppMkt itself is completely a scam. It's just misrepresenting itself. The "apps" it installs are not able to interact with the file system or OS; they're just links to HTML5 "web apps." Basically, they're doing the same thing Apple did when the iPhone was first released: trying to pass off web apps as a legitimate alternative to a real app store.

    The issue is that anyone can add an "app" to their market, and a bunch of people have created fake "Cydia" apps. Mostly they're just chock full of ads, but some of them do contain links to info on non-jailbreak tweaks and tricks.

    So, basically you are saying that some of these cydia tweaks really work on a non-jailbroken iphone?
