Ever wondered what those files with .deb extension are? Have you ever seen them or maybe downloaded them and did not know how to install the .deb files into your iPhone? There is a very easy method for that, will get back to it in a bit, but first I want to explain the files with .deb extension. .deb files for an iPhone actually are like an installer … just like in Windows. They are like Setup.exe that you double click and than the installer starts and the software is installed, of course following some steps. But these .deb files with this method I will explain will be silently installed to your iPhone. We will use an application that is called i-FunBox (if you haven’t clicked on the link, do it now to download i-FunBox, you will be redirected to the official site and you will find a download button in the right bottom part of the webpage), maybe some of you know and some don’t, but this application is very useful. You have access to folders on your iPhone such as: Wallpapers, Installous downloaded .ipa files, Camera, Ringtones installed in your iPhone, Voice Memos and also Raw File System if you are a hardcore player. The easiest way to install downloaded apps from internet to your iPhone from your Computer is this i-FunBox application.
Notice: Your iPhone needs to be Jailbroken.
To install your downloaded apps into your iPhone first check that your files end in .deb so this assures that these files are the ones I was talking about earlier (iPhone Setup Files). If you are done with that, than the trick is pretty simple.
Next open i-FunBox. We will use a feature called Cydia App Install as shown in the picture below.
After you click on Cydia App Install just click and drag the .deb file(s) [applications] you want to install in your iPhone in the part as shown in the next picture and wait for it to transfer to your iPhone. And you are done.
And the Last thing you will need to do is reboot your iPhone 2 times. The reason you reboot your iPhone 2 times is:
- After the first reboot your iPhone installes the app
- After the second reboot your app installed will be usable, so don’t leave it to chance with not doing the second reboot, because you will need to do the whole procedure again.
I hope this app helps you in many other ways not in just installing apps to your iPhone.
