    Guitar Hero on Iphone / Itouch

    This is for all the guitar hero fanatics out there who cant go without it just like me. This guide will discuss how to transfor the game tab tab into the closest thing to Guiatar hero for the iPhone. I found a guide online somewhere which translated out to alot of work replacing specific files in multiple places using different zip files, way to complicated. So it found another way to do it nice and simple.

    Your Iphone / Touch will have to be jailbroken and running 2.X firmware we're doing it on a 2.1 phone.

    You will need SSH also installed on your iphone or touch. View our Guide

    Step 1.

    Goto the app store on your phone and install 'tab tab revenge' or use iTunes to install it.

    Step 2.

    Download Guitar Hero Tap Tap Version from here and extract it to your desktop.

    Step 3.

    Connect to your device, there are various ways of doing this weather you are using a mac or a windows pc or linux. We are using windows over usb method since its 5 times quicker then over wifi.

    Use our guide here if you are using windows like we are.

    Step 4.

    After you are connected you have 2 windows one on the left and one on the right. On the right browse to /private/var/mobile/Applications
    here you will have random characters divided by 4 dashes such as XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXX You will need to click though each of them to find the one that contains Tap Tap.app folder inside it. On the left window browse to where you extracted Tap Tap.app on your desktop.

    Select it and hit F5 then Enter

    When it prompts to overwrite hit Yes to all.

    Step 5.

    Click on the Tab Tab.app folder on the left hand side and select properties.

    Then click the Set group checkmark at the bottom and click ok

    Reboot the phone

    Enjoy the game.

    I tried it (2.1) and the app just keeps crashing when it launches. My permissions are correct (at least I think they are).

    I did it on a Mac and assumed I did the equivalent changes. I'll try it in Windows I guess.

    2.1. I decided to restore to a non-jailbroken state anyway, really no apps I wanted/needed. So don't worry about it now, can't use it anyway :)

    On step 5, don't you mean "right hand side" instead of left hand side?

    Shoot, I've having the same problem. Even though I've check set group on the bottom of the properties, the game crashes right after it starts. I've rebooted the iPhone multiple times and tried the entire procedure over a couple times. Each time it's the same result.

    Also, the icon on my iPhone is still the Tap Tap Revenge icon. Is this correct? When I open the App, it shows "Guitar Hero Tap it!" and crashes about 2 seconds later.

    I assume you have Tapulous' written permission to redistribute Tap Tap Revenge?

    i'm having the same crash problem. i see the "guitar hero tap" screen then it crashes. i noticed that when i click the "set group" box and hit ok, then click properties again it's unchecked. this must be the problem but i don't know how to make the check permanent.
