    I am trying to install some packages from the Installer, but I receive the following error message:
    "Package download failed: can't find host!":confused:

    Do you know how to add a source file?

    If you know how to add/remove the source file, delete the source and add it again. and then try to install any application in that repositary, and before all please check your internet connection also.

    Thanks for your help.
    I realized that I only have this problem with some sources. Unforunately I don't know how to add a source.
    Can you please explain me?
    I'm sorry, I'm new with iPhones.

    Hi Cvarela,

    It is very easy to add new sources to our iphone.
    It is matter of few steps, but only thing is we need to little carefull What to add and what not to add.

    Ok now to adda source to your iphone installer,
    1. Tap installer on your springboard( Springboard is nothing but the homescreen that you see on iphone, when you tap installer, installer will open)
    2. Tap Sources ( You will find all sources that you are added, at the top of the screen you will fine two tabs 1. Refresh 2. Edit)
    3. Tap Edit
    4. Observe that Refresh button now will turn into Add
    5. Tap Add ( Now a window named Add source) will open
    6. Enter the source you want to add.
    7. Tap OK ( It will take sometime to refresh the sources. Note: Every 24hrs the resources will reload)
    8. Tap Done.
    9. Tap Install --> Here you will found the list of installable items related to each source you added.

    The Usefull sources that you can add are the below one's

    AppTapp Official: repository.apptapp.com
    Conceited Software: conceitedsoftware.com/iphone
    Ste Packaging: repo.smxy.org/iphone-apps/

    For more sources you can go through the below url.
    iPhone Resources, APPTAPP sources
