READ BEFORE POSTING - 3.1.3 and iOS 4 App Requests/Posting Rules
« on: November 16, 2013, 10:29:10 PM »
What is this board for?

This is a board where you can request apps for 3.1.3 or iOS 4, provided you read, understand, and comply by the rules below.  You can also post and share apps you may have that haven't been posted before, or aren't in the App Time Machine.

Request rules
Please, when requesting an app for 3.1.3 or iOS 4, follow the below rules/posting guides.

Search the App Time Machine first
If it is for 3.1.3. If you can't, then continue on with your post ;)

The app must have been compatible with 3.1.3 or iOS 4 at some point.
You cannot ever get the latest version of the app, or anything above the last 3.1.3 compatible version on your device. If that version is broken, you can't fix it :( Not trying to sound harsh, but that's hopefully enough to get through to people about the situation.
The hardware on your device simply cannot handle it. iOS is closed source. Tweaks hook into stuff and make new code, not port Apple's code. We cannot provide support for newer apps that are compiled for our CPU because you can't run a higher iOS anyway.   Think of it this way, you don't expect a computer from 1997 to run games and an OS from 2013 do you? Even if the app just seems a little a way from supporting 3.1.3, it's not possible. There are so many things that can't be changed in order for it to work on 3.1.3/your iOS. 
[spoiler="Disclaimer"]Okay, technically, nothing is impossible. This just hasn't happened yet and very likely won't happen at all. Hardware limitations. End of story[/spoiler]
Please be aware that any links to appstore apps will be removed if the app doesn't support the above iOS versions. Breaking this rule more than once could lead to a permanent ban or timed posting ban.

Search
Use this method to search for an app before posting yourself. (this is what we would use anyway.) Whited00r 6 How-To Find iOS 3.1.3 4.1 4.2.1 Compatible Apps + iTunes Filter. If you can't find it through that, then continue the post.

Search the forums!
Top right hand corner of the forums is a search tool. It is your friend, and will not bite you. :)

Research
Try and do a bit of research if you don't already know, to find the version number for the last compatible version for your iOS version. Without that, searching for it is nearly impossible :(

Keywords in the title
Use relevant keywords in the title of the post. Something like "App request" or "App please" or "Kik" are not good titles ;) However, "Kik for 3.1.3?" or "Looking for Facebook compatible with 3.1.3" are good, and shall be smiled upon by other users, admins and moderators, as it helps the users later on search for it and find the thread :)

Cracked requests
Please don't request cracked apps or tweaks here (from Cydia...). We don't endorse piracy.  If anything, contact the dev of the tweak and see if he has an older version :)  You could try some pirate repos though, if you are desperate, as they sometimes contain older versions of cracked tweaks and apps.

Rules for posting apps
Please follow these rules before posting an app that is compatible with 3.1.3 or iOS 4:

Use relevant keywords in the title.
Same as the requests, using relevant keywords in the title helps us and other users to find the thread later on with the search tool.

Crack it
If it isn't already, please, use the crack tool in terminal via entering in the following code line by line:
Code: [Select]
su
alpine <- doesn't show as being typed. This is the root password for your device unless you changed it like you should have
crack

It should then guide you from there on how to crack it :)

Check first!
Please, check and see if the app is still compatible in iTunes with 3.1.3, and if it is a paid app, wait before submitting it to here or the App Time Machine.

Cydia tweaks/apps
If this is a Cydia tweak or app, please make sure it doesn't still support 3.1.3.  We try not to just post cracked tweaks here, only older versions of free tweaks. :)

Admins, mods, please feel free to edit this as you please, but try and keep it only relating to apps/tweaks and not as a troubleshooting post ;)
