    we're not really allowed to discuss this sort of thing on here as its illegal

    but I hear google and "mac geek mobileinstallation" works a treat to solve this problem

    ACTUALLY, i can think of a legal reason to do that hack:

    i wanted to put apps that were made by ME, but apple doesn't let you without paying to use the app store and that hack fixes it (my apps work, but theyre not signed by apple)

    if you read what I put, the first link that should appear in google would be the answer to help you as it is classed as illegal to go step by step with u

    he installed it through cydia, but that screwed up his ipod, so he wants to get RID of it to FIX his ipod.

    But if I understand correctly, that hack replaces a file on the iPod with a hacked version, so in order to fix that, he'd need the original, unhacked file.

    I would think the best bet for the OP if he doesn't have a backup of the original file is to go ahead and follow the directions he found through google. That would hopefully get his phone to a working state. One thing that's for sure is that simply deleting the file won't fix this particular situation -- you need a working copy of the mobileInstallation file on your iPhone.

    cydia doesn't show up, yeah you've got a problem here.

    What firmware are you running?

    (all the suggestions up there won't work, one person was on the right path tho, the thing he installed on cydia replaces the old mobileinstallation file with a new one, so you have replace it with one for the right firmware)

    edit: yeah, nvm night spring got it right.


    If you tell me what firmware you have I can get you the original mobileinstallation folder

    Make sure that you have any type of App, even a free one, downloaded on your iPod Touch. Than, you should be able to open up cracked Apps 100%.

    I have never done it and never will do it - it is illegal. This forum post is just education.
