I recently found myself needing to add a third-party repository to my iPhone’s Installer.app “Sources” list. An application repository is basically a handful of third-party applications meant for Installer.app. Repositories are hosted by various developers – Ste, Conceited Software, ModMyiFone, etc.
While Installer.app is a great way to add third-party applications to your iPhone, you won’t be able to access a particular developer’s applications-list without adding their repository to your “Source” list.
Here’s a quick tutorial on just how to add application sources like ModMyiFone’s application repository:
- Jailbreak (updated Jailbreak method for v1.1.2 iPhones) your iPhone – the Nullriver Installer application (Installer.app) will automatically install itself
- Start-up your Installer.app
- Hit up the “Sources” section
- Then hit “Edit” in the upper right corner
- You should see the “Refresh” button replaced with the “Add” button in the upper left corner, hit that.
- Enter the address of the developer’s repository (for MMi, it’s http://modmyifone.com/installer.xml)
- Click “Done” and you’re, well, done! You should now see new applications from the developer in your “Install” section – adding the MMi source will result in a new “ModMyiFone.com” category as well as a host of other “MMi” categories.
That’s it, pretty painless right? If you have any questions, leave it in the Comments section.
