    Sorry to be a newb asking for help but I've really dug today to no avail. I want to install the MobiTV app onto the iPod Touch. However the app is for the iPhone OS so it won't install through the itunes sync option. Is there a way around this.

    A few things.

    Yes, I am Jailbroken.
    Yes, I have 3.1.3 firmware.

    There is a way. But I don't think it is legal.

    The question is it technically illegal because it is a free app i'm trying to get.

    if it's a free app then no it shouldn't be illegal but there are ways to add apps that are illegal even if they are free

    If you add it "that way" don't download it from "there". Get it from iTunes and ssh i to the downloads folder in you iPod, then there is nothing illegal involved.

    Yea I downloaded it from Itunes, I just want to sync it to the ipod touch without using Itunes because I hate Itunes all of a sudden.

    Even if it's free, any distribution of apps outside of the App Store/iTunes Store is considered illegal.

    Alright Thank you everyone. I actually did get it to the ipod Touch. By magical means. However, it said the application was encrypted and wouldn't install.

    Thank you anyway.
