    Funny that a Newbie Knows this a regular doesn't. TS it's against forum rules to discuss pirating.

    I'm asking if this app is crashing when attempting a search.

    I'm not asking about pirating apps.

    You're arguing semantics and going off topic.

    It's a simple question, and I'm not asking about pirating any apps.

    Maybe I'm asking if the Search function is crashing the app for anyone else because I'm having an issue with my iPhone search feature and I'm wondering if it happens with other apps like Cydia and Installous, or if the issue is with my iPhone and not Installous.

    Maybe I find it more convenient to preview an app description thru Installous instead of the App store, or if the App store is down or there is a lot of traffic.

    Maybe I find it easier to update apps I paid for thru Installous, as the App store requires me to enter my password to download updates for free and/or paid apps and my password is long and convoluted and difficult and time consuming to enter, especially while commuting to work on a bumpy bus ride.

    Maybe there are other reasons not related to pirating apps. I shouldn't have to explain myself to people that have nothing to contribute to the thread when I'm asking a simple question.

    If the mods want to delete the post, then that's fine, but don't accuse me of pirating for asking a question if the Search function, not the download function, and subsequently installing the download is crashing the app, because that's your assumption and not my intent.

    I know the rules here and wouldn't have posted if this regarded pirating apps as opposed to trying to track down an issue that may be related to the search function crashing the app.

    So please, save your preaching for Sunday church.

    Ok I found out the solution OP.

    First go to Cydia/Manage/Packages

    Scroll down to "Installous."

    Tap it, then hit Modify/Remove.


    Then everything will be fixed!

    I'm sure half the forums have already put you on that list.

    Just sayin' :)

    +1 Nice one bro. Lol

    So much hate here. Just delete the app and reinstall. Get the correct version for 4.2.1.

    All I can say is check compataibility (make sure its 4.2 ready)
    iI assume the servers are being slammed so I suggest reinstalling if you have issues.
    Goodluck

    You could try getting the /deb form an unofficial place ?

    Yes, I do hate it when people have the indecency to not support a developer for all their hard work. I once used to be a pirate, but have switched back. It's a moral issue really, but your choice...

    Cheers

    BTW, Installous has apps that are free on the Apple App store.

    So it's not piracy to download a free app from a different source than the Apple App store.

    And verion 3 of Installous does not crash when hitting the "Search" icon, so that helps me with my troubleshooting of the issue I'm having with my phone's search function.

    As for the snarky comments, one can only guess why someone would engage in such behavior and accuse someone of piracy without knowing the facts.

    I guess they just ASSumed that Installous is only used to pirate apps that are not free.

    Or they are just projecting...

    Would you like a medal?

    I'm not going to judge the OP he can do what he wants and frankly I don't care. However, some people use Installous for trial purposes for apps. We've all been screwed by paying for an app but in the end getting royally screwed because the developer flaked or it didn't work as advertised. The OP can do what he wishes and it's not our job to judge him. Very few people jailbreak just do steal apps.

    OP, everything aside, Cydia is getting hammered from all the new 4.2.1 jailbreaks and it would be best to wait a day or two. When you can, reinstall and it should work fine. If not, I have no idea.

    You are wrong. All app store apps (even the free ones) are used under license. unless you d/l directly from the app store your apps will not be licensed. this is in the t&c which you have agreed to.
