Installous is gone. Hackulo.us has shutdown and there’s no more repo support from that team. As unfortunate as it is (Installous was our most loved Cydia app), things aren’t getting any better any sooner with no sign of any coming back from Hackulo.us team.

Install vShare

When things give you a run for your money (or time), the best thing to do is look for alternatives to Installous. We’ve been doing that for a long time now. There was AppCake which we reviewed a while back. However, you don’t find any other software like vShare (formerly AppVV) which has now been updated to work with iOS 7 too.

Note: here’s how to untethered jailbreak iOS 7 on your iDevice (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) using Evasi0n7 jailbreak.

With vShare, things are a bit different from your usual Installous alternative. It’s a Cydia tweak as much similar to Installous as it can be but there are several variations which make vShare quite interesting and popular.

But first, let’s go through vShare installation.
You’ll need:

  • Jailbroken iPhone/iPad
  • Cydia installed
  • A working internet connection

How to Install vShare on Your Jailbroken iPhone or iPad Running iOS 7:

#1. Get AppSync
Plenty of repos now host AppSync. The official vShare repo has AppSycn for iOS 7. To get AppSync, follow this:

  • Open Cydia
  • Go to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> and tap on Add
  • Type ‘repo.appvv.com‘ and tap on Add Source to add the repo
  • Now search for ‘AppSync 7.0 (IPA Crack) ‘ install it and you’re done!

#2. Get vShare
After you’ve installed AppSync, do the following:

  • Search for “vShare” on Cydia
  • Tap on vShare from the search results and Install it!

#3. Download and Enjoy Apps
That’s it! Now get going. Look for apps on vShare’s interface and download them directly. AppSync will get them installed and synced on your iPhone/iPad.

Why vShare?
vShare is much better than Installous in terms of the download process because it lets you download the IPA files directly. This beats having to wait for downloaders, time limits and the captcha thing.

vShare also brought out recent changes and updates that make it iOS 7 compatible for all that are jailbroken.


  1. I’ve tried each version of Appsync starting with the one Compatible with my I pad which is 6.1 but it is giving me (vshare) error for reaching the server.

    Any suggestions or help guys.


  2. Worked on my iPhone 4, 6.1. Was looking for a tutorial that didn’t involve installous. Thanks man, and as kids would say nowadays, “You da man bro!”.

  3. For some reason apps on vshare wont work, they just open and crash right away. Anyone know how to fix this issue? Please help me, thanks!

    Btw ive got a iphone 5 on 6.1 jailbroken if that helps :)

    • try to install appsync ios 6 on cydia or appsync ios 5.0+. i have that same issue last week.. get appsync from http//repocydia.com/ source..

  4. Is it ok to install vshare first before knstalling appsync. I did like taht and everytime i download apps and install them they just fail

  5. Lately, I haven’t been able to install any games I download so vShare isn’t exactly something i’d put my hopes up 100% for anymore. At first it was great, now I don’t know what is wrong with it.

  6. i have downloaded appsync and then vshare but when i download an app from vshare, the app does not open what should i do????????

  7. Idk works perfectly for me. An awesome app. Really cool that it has an update option. So much better than installous! Damn should’ve gotten this long ago. Feel sorry for everyone who has problems with it. Know how that feels (installous 4 comes to mind)

  8. Hello. I´ve just followed all steps and installed vshare. when I open the application and try to download and install an application, the download doesnt start… what could be the problem?

  9. Stopped working for some reason. I really liked it but now it says that it cant download data and to check my connection. Has anyone had the same problem? And can it be fixed?

  10. this was working fine for me for a few days but now everytime i open the
    vshare app it just says can’t download data. Please check your network!
    any suggestions. many thanks,

    • we’re hearing this from a lot of people. I think it’s a server load issue but it might also
      be due to erroneous AppSync and other stuff. Try re-installing vShare after removing it and
      waiting a few hours.

  11. why is that the amount is on the application? is that mean if i will download games with amount. I will already purchase it?

  12. It should be a great app. But they are short on servers and now I can’t establish any connection Its always says that the source maybe changed or try again latter… :(
