How To Use ZiPhone's Plugin System To Install Custom Apps On Your IPhone

How to use ZiPhone's plugin system to install custom apps on your iPhone

ZiPhone is a popular tool for jailbreaking and unlocking iPhones. It also has a plugin system that allows you to install custom apps on your iPhone by using a zip file called Here is how to use it:

How to use ZiPhone's plugin system to install custom apps on your iPhone

Create a zip file containing the app you want to install, relative to the iPhone root. For example, if you want to install an app called YOURAPP, your zip file should contain:






Make sure you zip the file on a Unix system (such as a Mac, Linux, or Cygwin under Windows) with the command:

zip -yr9 /Applications/YOURAPP.APP

  • Put in /var/root/Media/ or /var/mobile/Media/ on your iPhone's filesystem. You can use a file manager app such as iFile or SSH into your iPhone to do this.

  • Run ZiPhone again and choose the jailbreak option. ZiPhone will automatically detect and install on your iPhone.

  • Enjoy your custom app!

If you want to run a shell script after installation or instead of installation, you can add /tmp/ to containing your script. For more details, see

Note: ZiPhone is not responsible for any third-party plugins and you use them at your own risk. A big red warning will appear on your iPhone during installation. Make sure you only install plugins from trusted sources and compatible with your firmware version.

Why use ZiPhone's plugin system?

ZiPhone's plugin system is a simple and powerful way to customize your iPhone with apps that are not available on the App Store. You can install apps that enhance your iPhone's functionality, such as file managers, terminal emulators, or network tools. You can also install apps that provide entertainment, such as games, emulators, or media players. You can even install apps that modify your iPhone's appearance, such as themes, icons, or wallpapers.

ZiPhone's plugin system is also very easy to use. You don't need to have any coding skills or technical knowledge to create and install plugins. All you need is a zip file containing the app files and a Unix system to zip them. You can also find many ready-made plugins online from various sources. Just make sure you trust the source and the plugin is compatible with your firmware version.

What are the limitations of ZiPhone's plugin system?

ZiPhone's plugin system is not without its drawbacks. One of the main limitations is that it only works on iPhones that are jailbroken with ZiPhone. If you use another jailbreak tool or update your firmware, you may lose your plugins and have to reinstall them. Another limitation is that ZiPhone's plugin system does not support Cydia or Installer packages. These are more common formats for jailbreak apps and have more features and options than zip files. If you want to install Cydia or Installer packages, you will need to use another tool such as Cydia Impactor or iFunBox.

Another limitation of ZiPhone's plugin system is that it may not work with all apps. Some apps may require additional dependencies or permissions that ZiPhone's plugin system cannot provide. Some apps may also conflict with each other or with your firmware and cause errors or crashes. You should always backup your iPhone before installing any plugins and test them carefully before using them regularly. 04f6b60f66
