Most of our readers are claiming that they are facing an issue, API Error to be precise, when trying to access Installous at any point in time. This post will guide you on how to fix Installous API Error on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Before you proceed to this post steps further, i am assuming that you know how to use installous on your iDevice. And after that its really important to understand first that why you are getting the API Error issue.
If you have previously been using Installous, you’ll know that this issue was rarely faced. However, since JailbreakMe iPad 2 jailbreak went live, huge amount of traffic started rolling in for Installous and naturally, the servers had to crumble. Picture this: Servers that are already coping with millions of jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches immediately have to cope with thousands of freshly jailbroken iPad 2. At the moment, the issue exists but for a short period of time. The day when JailbreakMe 3.0 went live, most people couldn’t use Installous the whole night.
Here is the Official Message,
” Chances are, you’re a new iOS jailbreaker. Since last night’s jailbreak release, we’ve quadrupled in traffic and our servers are doing their best to cope. I’ll be working pretty hard to keep things online, but every once in a while you’ll meet a couple slow platches. Sorry! “
So one of the solutions that we suggested to a couple of readers and it actually worked out for them was that you first remove Installous and the Hackulous repository from Cydia. Then reinstall the repository and Installous once again on your device. Reboot your device and launch Installous. As simple as this sounds, this has actually worked for many people.
