OpenAppMkt (Open App Market)

If you are looking for alternative applications for your iPhone, you may want to add Openappmkt to your home screen. Openappmkt is similar to the App Store but the apps do not have to be approved by Apple first. You will find some great unapproved by Apple applications here. The apps are legal and will not void your warranty (HTML 5). As seen on Attack of the Show (AOTS).

You will find apps for jailbroken (Cydia) and non-jailbroken iPhones. Visit http://openappmkt.com on your iPhone and follow the prompts on the screen. You will add the icon/bookmark ‘+’ to your home screen and you’re done. Simply visit the  market and chose from your favorite apps. The icons/apps will appear on your home screen as they usually do with App Store apps.

Note: Android support is said to be coming soon.

Run Flash on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

How to run Flash content on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

First you will need to have a jailbroken iPhone. The easiest way to jailbreak your iPhone is to open Safari on your iPhone and visit jailbreakme.com. Follow the prompts and within minutes your iPhone should have a Cydia icon on the home screen. Click on the Cydia app icon and chose “User/Graphic” install if you are just an average joe and not a ninja coder.


Note: Jailbreakme.com may not be around for long since apple already has a fix for the hole so time is limited. Frash: You may be able to see some, but not all flash content. Frash may also cause some crashes and may not work properly. Use at you own risk. For me it works good so far. I will keep you updated.


Once Cydia is installed and running follow the steps below:

  1. Open Cydia
  2. Choose Manage
  3. Tap on Sources
  4. In the upper-right corner tap on Edit
  5. Add the following URLhttp://repo.benm.at/
  6. If it works correctly you should see “Entered by User” BENM.AT Repo. Click on that source and look for frash (it did not work the first try for me but after a reboot it was there)
  7. Frash is the tweak to allow Flash based content on Safari
  8. Install frash and if you use SBSettings I recommend installing Frash Toggle located just below frash. Respring and you should be good to go. Enable and disable frash from SBSettings by swiping left to right at the top of you home screen. You should now see a frash toggle to tap on and off with ease.
  9. Good luck and have fun!

If you should have any trouble with this install feel free to write me or watch the video below hosted by Brian Tong of CNET for more details.
