Well, I own an iPod Touch 2G with 3.0 firmware. I recently updated Durak, an amazing but simple eastern european card game that I've been playing since childhood.

I updated it and it kept crashing. Desperate to find out why, I started research, App Store informed me that Durak requires 3.1.2 or higher to function properly, which clearly explained why mine didn't.

So, I backed up my music, upgraded to 3.1.3, restored to 3.1.2 and used blackra1n to jailbreak my device. Downloaded Cydia, App Cake, Installous, OpenSSH and SBSettings.

I then SSH'd into my device via WinSCP and dropped in the latest Durak into:

/private/var/mobile/downloads

It's the Installous installtion folder. I then tried to install the app on Installous, it keeps saying the IPA file is corrupt. Fine. Downloaded a few more games, dropped them in and still the same thing. App Cake installs them within like a second or two and they are not on the dashboard.

I don't know what I am doing wrong, or what I am forgetting to do but someone please help me.

Thanks

you tried installing the package via terminal?

How about extracting the .app and installing it that way.

I've fixed this by installing AppSync so it's all cool now :smile:
