AppTapp Featured

The NullRiver folks have released a new version of AppTapp Installer for the iPhone. I have just installed version 3.0b3 and I must say that it was a needed upgrade. The number of apps have grown so much that there was the definite need to reorganize how they were structured. So without further ado, here are the new/change features (with screenshots).

Note: This update is NOT to be confused with the installer.app that is used to Jailbreak your 1.0.0, 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 iPhones. This is the application that resides on your iPhone that lets you install applications you download over the air. Also, proceed with caution as I’m starting to read that there might be some issues with this.

  • New bottom tabs – Featured, Install, Update, Uninstall & Sources
  • Featured – So the newest thing here is “Featured which displays a welcome screen with information about the release. I have a feeling that this spot could be used for “featuring” a particular application in detail (e.g., paid-for spot or sponsor)

    AppTapp Featured

  • Install – has now been reorganized to show the Categories as Directories, as opposed to just headers and scrolling one long list. Now, you select a Directory category and then the applications are contained therein, thus eliminating the need to scroll endlessly through ALL of the apps.There is also the nice addition of “Recent Packages” which then is broken down into “Today,” “Yesterday” and “Older”

    AppTapp Install #1

    AppTapp Install #2

  • Update – no real significant changes here that I have noticed (yet)
  • Uninstall – no real changes. This is similar to the older single scroll list that the install section used to have.

    AppTapp Uninstall

  • Sources – this area has been slightly redesigned. When you install this new version, you will get an update for community sources update. In this update you will see specific mention to firmware 1.1.1 as the AppTapp Official Source. This is where you REFRESH your sources to see if you have new versions of your installed applications.

    AppTapp Sources #1

    Clicking Edit lets you remove particular sources.

    AppTapp Sources #2

  • Program Info – this has been changed ever so slightly to include a better presentation of the data, including now the ability to contact the developer directly on some apps. Clicking on Contact launches an email message to the developer with the subject pre-populated.

Seems to me that it is a pretty solid release. I did notice that the refresh of the Sources was a bit slower than before. I will continue to monitor that. Other than that, I would be sure to upgrade to this (or later) versions soon.

  3. @ Long,

    I have been hearing of the freezing problem with unlocked versions.
    Some thoughts on this…freezing may be due to the large amount of people using the app and refreshing repositories and downloading new versions of apps (including apptapp).

    There may be issues with unlocked phones running older versions but I don’t know at this time. However, there are more an more Jailbreak apps and unlock apps being released so I have a feeling that soon there will be some easier solutions.

    For what it’s worth, even with the new AppTapp installed, mine runs very slowly when refreshing the repository.

    Good luck,

  7. OK, You have me all excited about this new update to apptapp, and I can’t seem to locate it. I see no link on your
    page, and can’t seem to find it elsewhere. Can you give me a hint? I would appreciate it.

  9. @ Long,

    There are lots of ways to jailbreak your phone now. I recommend looking through either http://www.iPhoneatlas.com or http://www.TUAW.com for information. I also have some previous posts about my experiences doing it.

    @ David,

    Remember, AppTapp is the installer that resides on your iPhone and where you can install new applications that you get over the air.

    To get the upgrade, simply refresh your old version of AppTapp on your iPhone and it should show up as an update. Just install the update. If you don’t have AppTapp on your phone already, you need to get it on there through JailBreaking or other methods (mentioned above).

    Good luck!

  11. i want to add additional community sources to my apptapp 3.0 What is the conceited software beta repository url and/or any that you know about

  12. i want to add additional community sources to my apptapp 3.0 What is the conceited software beta repository url and/or any that you know about

  13. @ Brian,

    You should have Category called “Sources” and that is where you should find “Community Sources” which should enable the Conceited Software stuff.

    However, for the “beta” Conceited Software (which only really had the tools needed to help you Jailbreak your 1.1.1 firmware, you need to go (in your iPhone’s Safari) to: http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/beta and that should prompt you to install that repository. I’m not sure if it is still valid or not but that is how I did it.

  19. @ Edward,

    I have not noticed any signal change after doing the install. There are other factors that may affect your signal strength (e.g., weather, proximity to other electronic devices, location, etc.)

    @ Adm358

    That is very odd. Have you tried a soft reset (hold the power button and the home button at the same time until the system restarts). When you said you had it working, was that on the 1.1.1 firmware? Have you synched recently? Are you on an iPhone or an iPod Touch? I have heard that with the Touch, the phone may un-jailbreak your device (self repair). Try a soft reset (described above) and see if it comes back.

  21. Hi adm358,

    I hope this is not too late to answer your question.
    My brother had the exact same problem. My brother installed a number of 3rd App without Summerboard which allows you to scroll the SpringBoard screen. As a result, icons that are after 16th (the alst row of the SB) disappeared.

    My brother reinstalled “Installer” using his computer ((you can google to download the Installer). Then the Installer reappeared on the SB. He reinstaller the SummerBoard after reinstalling the Installer to make sure he can scroll the screen and see all the icons that were hidden.

    I hope this helps.
    Cheers :)

  33. @Indresh,

    Well, that is an interesting scenario. I suggest that you read through some of my later posts, since the latest firmware that I used and jailbroke was on 1.1.2. Since then, I have upgraded to 1.1.3 and lost all jailbreak possibility (for now).
    Good luck!

    A couple of things you can do, use the SEARCH at the top of the screen. You can also click on the Categories (like iPhone) or some of the Tags (like iPhone). At the bottom of the page, you can find where the most comments are.
    However, for you, I would recommend looking at this post.

  47. @ Nizzar,

    Hmmm. Are you sure you are on 1.1.2? Are you on an iPhone or an iPod Touch? I’m now on 1.1.3 and waiting for a new Jailbreak process.

    @ Kim,

    I’m wondering if the AppTapp team has released a version that changed some things. Unfortunately, I can’t test it as I’m on 1.1.3 now. There are some commands that you can use via SSH to launch the installer but if you can’t do it through the GUI, I’m not sure if it will work through SSH.

    @ Kanie,

    Sorry that you are experiencing the same thing. I would NOT use mobile finder to delete anything since you may do other damage to your file structure. Also, there may be items installed in other folders that you would need to delete. Your best bet is to either wait until something new comes out that fixes (might be on some other sites) or upgrade to 1.1.3 (you will lose 3rd party apps) and wait till the jailbreak for that is out (supposedly it has been done but not officially released until Apple releases the SDK). I think the 3rd party developers are waiting to see what happens with the SDK.

  51. @ Kanie,

    Well, since your iPhone version is 1.1.3, you cannot use the installer. You must have done the install through iTunes and your firmware is upgraded (and your iPhone is now NOT jailbroken). The firmware 1.1.3 does re-lock your phone as well as un-jailbreak it. In the future, you really need to be careful on what you choose to upgrade. This has nothing to do with nullriver. You simply upgraded your firmware and now you are stuck until someone figures out an easy way to jailbreak and/or unlock.

  57. @ Kanie,

    I guess I’m a bit confused. Firmware 1.1.3 for the iPhone disables the use of the Installer. By applying the firmware from Apple (via iTunes), you phone is put back to being un-jailbroken. Also, for people who had an unlocked phone (in the US, I believe), the phone is now re-locked (meaning, you can’t use with Tmobile in the US).
    However, if you are using a NEW installer of AppTapp or whatever (meaning released within the past day or so), I don’t know how it works (as I have not installed yet on my iPhone).
    Please, when posting, be clear on what you have done and what you are trying to do. I know that you are in an “emergency,” but you have to understand that any time you work with 3rd party apps and/or unlock your phone, the second you install new firmware (like 1.1.3), you phone is re-locked or un-jailbroken.
    Hope you understand.

  61. I still can not find a fix to the problem, and nullriver is not saying anything about this problem that is going around. did anyone see or found any solution some where please let me know ASAP. Just in case you do not know what Iam talking about in regard to the problem it is that:
    One dark night I started IPHONE as usaual and straight to installer to check what is new. Then I saw it a UFO (upgrade File opject) Prompt. Immediatly I proceeded to dounload and that was the begining of the end of my installer. All it does after that is start to empty page and shuts immediatly as like the UFO has kidnapped all the installer.
    Facts of demized: The Iphone is running 1.1.2 and is jailproken and has no carrier service just used with wifi. every thing was working fine till the day of I-UFO when time stood still.

  65. I have 1.1.1 iPhone and my girl has a 1.0.2 and we both updated and both can not use installer any more. It will not loaf up and returns to the home screen. I click the app and it goes as it will start but stays blank white and then goes back to home screen. Has anyone downloaded voice commader whom had this problem. I think its a virus of some sort that did this which locks up installer so you can’t add or delete it.

  67. also the update was different. It asked to update installer before installer was fully open. It was more like a pop up opposed to update. Usually updates are done in the updates tab. I def think its some sort of virus that was installed through installer and acted as a update for installer. I havea funny feeling it was voicecommander because it didnt work after installed and when i uninstalled it didnt seem to be fully gone.

  71. for those with 1.1.3 use ziphone. Works great to jailbreak. As far as this installer crash, same thing happened as far as the update but I can still connect and download. But I can not add sources, or rather I add sources but no content is added. I really wanted those nes roms too

After which, I connect my iphone to itunes and accidently upgrade my phone to v.1.1.3…. my phone was lock and i tried to unlock it by myself using a programe. Currently my phone was unlock and i was able to use. However, I am unable to install any app as I always got a msg stating “package download failed: Can’t fiind host”

    Did you use ziphone? You may have to restore and try again. Make sure you download bsd subsystems and open ssh first thing. Some have had success with downgrading installer to 3.8 but that didn’t work for me.
