How to install the iPhone applications Mail, Notes, Stocks, Weather, and Maps on your iPod Touch

Update – May 1st 2008: The original method I outlined in this tutorial no longer works. But don’t worry, I’ve figured out a new one! What I’m getting at is that this tutorial has been completely re-written.

This tutorial will guide you through installing the iPhone apps Apple MobileMail, Apple Google Maps, Stocks, Weather and/or Notes on your iPod Touch. Note: this tutorial assumes you have a jailbroken iPod Touch using the 1.1.3 or 1.1.4 firmware, and are *cough* legally allowed to install these applications on your iPod Touch.

  1. First you’ll need to add a new source to your Installer.app repository. If you’re unsure how to do that, see the tutorial titled How to add additional sources to Installer on your iPhone or iPod Touch
  2. Use the on-screen keypad and enter the source http://labs.ispazio.net Tap OK when you’re done.
  3. Your sources list will now refresh.
  4. installer.app refreshing

  5. Scroll through the list of software sources to confirm iSpazio Laboratory was successfully added. When you’re done, click Done in the upper-right corner.
  6. Now tap Install from the bottom button-bar. In the Categories list, scroll down to Tweaks 1.1.4 (don’t worry if you have the 1.1.3 firmware installed). Select it.
  7. installer.app with 1.1.4 tweaks being displayed
    click to enlarge

  8. Select 1.1.3/4 iPod Full Features.
  9. iphone software you can install on your ipod touch
    click to enlarge

  10. Click the Install button in the upper right corner. When prompted, click the large Install button, or Add to Queue if you want to install more software at the same time.

    click to enlarge

  12. During the installation you’ll get a little pop-up notice. Read it over, and then click OK.

  14. When the installation is done, go back to your Springboard. It will probably require you to ‘unlock’ again, and the Springboard will re-appear with an Edit Home Screen message. Give it a read (it has some good/new info) and click Dismiss.

  • Alan April 12, 2008, 5:48 am

    I always wanted mail, Notes, Weather apps for the ipod touch and by adding the source http://applerepo.com solved everything.
    As i has previously installed them using cuteFTP but they didn’t work: but this happens to be most reliable and easiest way!!!!!!

    THanks whoever found out abt this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • oscar April 15, 2008, 3:34 pm

    i got everything downloaded but the maps icon didn’t appear

  • Ross McKillop April 15, 2008, 4:41 pm

    @oscar:

    You downloaded and installed the additional required set for Maps as well yes?

  • Hesham April 18, 2008, 1:17 am

    i installed the iphone applications stocks and map however i found out there is nothing addedto my existing icns, maps was exist befor install then disappeared postdownload.
    please advise how to retrieve?

  • Jon April 20, 2008, 9:37 am

    I am wondering is there any software to use for install application directly from win PC to iphone using cable ?thanks

  • oscar April 20, 2008, 1:19 pm

    i added the source apple repo and got notes, mail, stocks, and weather but no maps.

    is it cuz i have firmware 1.1.4?

  • leroy April 22, 2008, 10:57 am

    did you find a solution? I’ve got the same problem.

  • Whatsizface April 24, 2008, 3:24 pm

    I updated a 1.1.4 touch and it worked fine. I didn’t downgrade but just installed all the apps at once from 1.1.3.

  • Subash April 26, 2008, 7:09 pm

    The best way to install the applications…Thanks a lot, it just works fine in the simplest way !!

  • Dag April 27, 2008, 10:00 am

    Did u find solution. Same problem for me.

  • Ross McKillop April 27, 2008, 11:04 am

    Dag,

    Someone mentioned using the 1.1.3 repo’s to install the Apps, even if you have 1.1.4 installed. I haven’t tried that, but if you’re willing to take a gamble…

  • AVEbrahimi April 29, 2008, 5:45 am

    Thanks, it works.

  • eggy April 30, 2008, 10:18 am

  • Alex April 30, 2008, 5:09 pm

    I an iTouch 1.1.4 and i downloaded the “All applications” in the “iPhone 1.1.4 applications” and i only got stocks and Notes… how do i get maps and mail?

  • Whatsizface May 5, 2008, 3:19 pm

    with a 1.1.4 touch, use the 1.1.3 app list. Worked for me. Got all the apps.

  • john May 6, 2008, 4:39 pm

    do you need to down grade to 1.1.2 first then upgrade

  • Josh Arg May 6, 2008, 8:14 pm

    Hey, I installed it with 1.1.4 but I just don’t get the icons on the springboard. However i can wiggle the existing icons. Does anyone know why is this happening?

  • ohfuxya May 7, 2008, 7:34 pm

    apple screwed me over when I lost my reciept key, which isn’t kept with your itunes library. they didn’t let me redownload the stupid january software pack. at least now I get to use what i freaking paid for.

    thank god for this community. apple can go bugger themselves…. hardware is great, support and vision is for shit.

  • turkey May 10, 2008, 7:22 am

    I tried to install the source but it won’t refresh . All I get is an uncategorized “Untitled Source” on the bottom of my list?

  • Dagge May 17, 2008, 3:36 am

    Thank mate! I love you!!!!!
    Really wanted these apps, but have never managed to get them;)

  • Josh Arg May 17, 2008, 12:05 pm

    turkey: check the spelling of the source address!

  • Michael May 17, 2008, 7:47 pm

  • Mav May 20, 2008, 3:02 am

    my says “package download failed: can’t find host!”

    Can someone please help?

    Many thanks

  • Juza_the_Cloud May 20, 2008, 11:49 pm

    This worked great on my Touch 1.1.4.
    Thanks a lot!

  • Josh Arg May 22, 2008, 7:16 pm

    Michael: you should check in the installer if there is an upgrade to get 1.1.4. If not, you may restore it using ziphone and itunes (it’s a little conffusing to explain here :S)

    Mav: if your touch says it can’t find the host, check your wifi connection! You may be unconnected to the internet. My touch tells me that when i’m far away from my router.

  • steve May 23, 2008, 5:22 am

    im currently using 1.1.1 and i installed this sources…..booooooom!!! my ipod wont reboot and apple apears 4ever…..how do i fix it…?? any solution??? anyone????

  • navik May 23, 2008, 10:49 pm

    hay wat happens if i install on 1.1.1? will it brick?

  • steve May 23, 2008, 11:02 pm

    absolutely yes….mine was 1.1.1 and i couldnt recognize it and i install it then respring it…next .. :( respring forever…home button and sleep button wont work… well so i turned it off manually……after that i turn it on apple logo apears and no movement……anybody has a idea??? please..this is emergency stuff tho… :( oh…my itunes could recognize my ipod but no move…

  • Josh Arg May 23, 2008, 11:44 pm

    steve: turn on your computer, open itunes and connect the cable to the pc, not to the ipod! Then, press and keep pressing the home button and plug the ipod. It will restore completely, i think to 1.1.4 (if you haven’t downloaded it, itunes will… it’s about 150mb so it will last a few minutes). Once restored, you’ll have your ipod as it came from factory. Then itunes will tell you there’s a new ipod connected, and it will ask you if you want to set it with a previously auto-saved security copy of your ipod, from the last syncronization. Click yes, and itunes will load your ipod with all your contacts, bookmarks and wifi connections you had before. Finally, sync it to load your music and videos again. Obviously, now you’ll have to jailbreak it again. I suggest using Ziphone with 1.1.4.

    Hope it’s been useful!

  • iwo May 27, 2008, 10:59 am

    I’ve got 1.1.1 and I bricked it while trying to install Iphone app acording to your description! Apple logo appears forever, cant do nothing! I tryed to fix it the way you reccomended Josh but its not working! PLease help!!!!!!!

  • Ross McKillop June 4, 2008, 1:34 pm

    @merav:

    I guess they’re just trying to keep everyone on their toes – they changed the repo to: http://labs.ispazio.net – so I’ve updated the tutorial accordingly. Sorry about the confusion.

  • Humz June 17, 2008, 7:20 pm

    you dont have to downgrade, if you install Ziphone, it takes 5 mins at the most if you cant get it i can send u the link if you want, there a ton of great tips on yoututbe on hacking the iphone/ipod

  • Humz June 17, 2008, 7:26 pm

    yes you get all the applications, the wiggle feature, and the bookmark to home-page come naturally with the 1.1.4 firmware

  • deku June 20, 2008, 7:48 am

    I installed this but can’t get the mail to work on my ipod touch firmware 1.1.4. When i open it it crashes immediately. I have looked into this and found the log of this problem but i dont know how to fix it. Please help

  • matt o June 20, 2008, 4:14 pm

    whenever i type in sources. they ALWAYS go down to untitled source.I refresh them. Nothing Happens!! This is so dumb there is so many sources i need but they always go down to the untitled sources. PLEASE HELP!!!

  • Humz June 20, 2008, 7:09 pm

    there are two ways u can solve this problem eithertry un-installing the apps and try again or get the ipodtouchmaster scource and click on the 1.1.4 mal fix icon or you could follow some of the steps on youtube from ihacks3 manually, i would recommend the scource code i dont rem. the code but if u still need it just email me back (reply)

  • Humz June 20, 2008, 7:38 pm

    alright 1st cheack if your ipod touch or iphone is connected to some wifi, if it is connected u might need to do something to restore your ipods network connection.

    before i get in to the depth of this can u still download things, is it slow or laggy.
    if you cant download anything u might need to restore your ipods network connection but if you can download things then there is a problem with your installer and might need to re-jailbreak your ipod touch/ iphone

  • Humz June 20, 2008, 7:51 pm

    IF YOU NEED HELP YOU CAN EMAIL ME AND I CAN SEE WHAT I CAN DO JUST CLICK ON REPLY AFTER THE DATE WHICH IS AFTER MY NAME

  • Cris June 21, 2008, 5:42 pm

    help need help fixing my sources

  • Eug June 23, 2008, 4:42 pm

    Hey I recently upgraded to 1.1.4 and jailbroke it. Everything was fine at first, but when I tried to add new sources beyond community sources, the refreshes failed for it. Now whenever I add a new source, it usually goes down to the untitled and uncategorized category, but it is also really weird in that some of the sources work fine. Major sources like BigBoss doesn’t work though. Please help!

  • jfr June 23, 2008, 8:14 pm

    I have an iPod touch that I just cleanly restored to 1.1.4. After installing the “Full Features” as listed above I only see Mail and Stocks. No Maps, Notes, etc. Does anyone have a solution?

  • gala June 24, 2008, 3:36 am

    I have exactly the same problem as Eug. All new sources I added go under uncategorized, except iphone.unlock.no and the BigBoss doesn’t work either. I would really appreciate some help!
    Thanks…

  • jfr June 24, 2008, 10:02 am

    I posted earlier and figured out my problem: I was actually at 1.1.3 and not 1.1.4. After restoring to factory 1.1.4 the Full Features package installed everything. Hope this helps someone.

  • Marco June 25, 2008, 12:13 pm

    Hi,

    I am trying to add the labs.ispazio.net source (after ziphone has run without problems on my 16GB 1.1.4 iPod Touch), but after OK it starts refreshing, but says ‘could not refresh sources’.

    What is wrong? How can I fix this problem, since now I can not install any apps (like mail etc).

    Thanks.

  • Marco June 25, 2008, 12:18 pm

    “Failed to refresh sources”
    -> This is caused by the fact that I did not had WiFi enabled!!!!
    So to anyone, make sure it is enabled when adding a source !

    -Marco

  • humza June 26, 2008, 7:06 am

    alright if your wifi is active and everything else is working then u might need to refresh your network connection for your ipod, this may also sometimes fix the youtube connection failure but beware u might lose your songs and vids on occasion,

    alright to fix this you have to follow these steps

    turn your ipod on
    go to settings
    go to the 3rd link labeled “General”
    go all the way down to the last icon labeled “reset”
    go to the 4th icon label “Reset Network Setting”

    if this dosent work then try reset all settings the 1st icon, THIS WILL ERASE ALL CONTENT,

    i hope this helps

    Im having the same problems with adding all new sources, even after 3 jailbreak attempts, is the problem with the new Itunes?or the installer app update (i think 3.11). cos on the 2nd try i didn’t take the update and sources did add but with out giving me any new application under the installer app.

    I will try the suggested Reset Network Setting”. and let you all know.

    I purchased a used itouch recently and icons “Mail”, “Utube”, “Maps” “Weather”, “Stocks”, “Notes”, “Calendar”, Clock”, “Contacts” are already on the screen. Does this mean that this itouch has already been “unlocked”. If so, do I need to do anything else to install more new applications?

    Also, how can I confirm if my iphone has been “unlocked”
