    I know that installing applications without the installer.app is possible, because i have seen people comment on apps which dont have a source for the installer yet. How to do it? I know how to get all the files onto my ipod and i know how to make folders and move files using Finder. Where should I put all the files, though? For example, i want to install Doom and I have

    Doom
    default.png
    icon.png
    info.plist
    doom1.wad

    Now, where am I supposed to put all this stuff?

    Thanks for nothing, AFX. That link only raised more questions. How do I "create "Doom.app""? Where do I put the image files? What about the .plist file?

    i read the whole thing and it tells you what to do.

    here, ill even post the instructions for your noobass to read.

    1) download file
    2) use WinSCP or another SFTP client
    3) browse to /Applications, open folder
    4) create a folder named Doom.app
    5) extract contents of file on desktop or somewhere equivelent
    6) move all files to /Applications/Doom.app
    7) set Doom.app and files within to 755 permissions
    8) get a valid WAD file and copy it to /private/var/root/Media/Doom
    9) set Doom folder and files within to 755 permissions
    10) your done

    from what i read on that very page i linked you to, make sure your wad file is named doom1.wad (or doom.wad if you have registered version).


    if you dont know how to create folders or set permissions, RTFM for the SFTP client you are using.
