iPhone 5: Screw Jailbreak, Zeusmos Finds Alternate Entry

By  | 

Most owners of the Apple iPhone use the device how Apple wants them to us it. However others choose to jailbreak their handset so they can install apps that Apple don’t want them to install. While there isn’t a jailbreak for iOS 6 out at the moment, there are two services by the name of Zeusmos and Kuaiyong which do offer something that helps users to bypass the need for an iOS 6 jailbreak.

Two alternatives to iPhone 5 iOS 6 untethered jailbreak discovered

Days ago there was an alternative to Installous mentioned, vShare. However this only works with hardware that has been jailbroken i.e. the iPhone 5 is out. Now TheNextWeb have mentioned two services called  Zeusmos and Kuaiyong and these allow those with the Apple iPhone to install apps that have been pirated, without having to jailbreak the device.

This means that if you own an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch or an iPad you can install pirated apps. However the service is not meant for the installation of pirated apps, but to allow developers to sign apps so they can be distributed as betas, outside of the Apple App Store. It works for both of course so be weary.

The team who was behind the Installous service, closed down the service due to low activity in forums, along with difficulties they had with moderation. The rise of services such as these has been welcomed by app developers on the iOS platform as it makes it easier to access apps that are pirated.

The service form Zeusmos is free and it can be used with devices on iOS 6 that have not been jailbroken such as the iPhone 5. However there is a charge for owners of devices that have not been jailbroken. The person behind it is just 15 years old and they are saying that it can be used as a way for users to try out apps before they pay out for them.

Kuaiyon, is a site from China and the service is similar however users can install apps for free. Apps can be installed on the device’s iOS hardware or through a cable. When it has been used you cannot use the sync option with iTunes, however apps appear as they are purchased through the enterprise license and they cannot be installed on more than one device.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
