invalid IPA error. Not-valid ipa file Correct

Sat, Jun 5, 2010


I just wanted to post to all about the error “Invalid IPA”, when downloading an app off of installous. If you are experiencing this error, its caused by one of two reasons.

1. The ipa file is actually corrupted.

2. You know the ipa file isnt corrupted but, installous (or some other downloader) tells you that it is.


Go into installous. Add the source “” and go through their source and get yourself APPSYNC. You want to make sure you download the one that corresponds with your iphone’s firmware. This is just a fix that will do you wonders. Comment if you need any more help on this topic

UPDATE 08/04/10

If you are on iOS4 Make sure to get the AppSync 4.0 🙂


UPDATE 10/15/2010

With the new jailbreak, we thought we’d open discussions on the forum.

    So I downloaded sinfuls’ appsync and it took installous away saying that installous had a requirement dependency to appsync. Why won’t it work for it? its Installous 4 (compatible with ios 5) and currently have sinfuls’ appsync 5.x+ ( most recent version so I figure works with ios 5?)

  23. anonomyous Says:

    go to cydia and go to sources

  36. Peyman Says:

    I solved this problem , first of all remove both installous and appsync from your idevice then after rebooting it, from hackolous via cydia first instal the approperiate appsync and then the installous, now it can install ipa without any error.
