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 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 Tap OK when you’re done.
  3. Your sources list will now refresh.
  4. 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. with 1.1.4 tweaks being displayed

  8. Select 1.1.3/4 iPod Full Features.

  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.

  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.

    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

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

  • Dag

    Did u find solution. Same problem for me.

  • 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…

  • Josh Arg

    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

    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

    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

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

  • Josh Arg

    turkey: check the spelling of the source address!

  • Michael

    hi can some one tell me how to get my ipod to get it to 1.1.3/4 from after i jail break it from 1.1.1

  • Mav

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

    Can someone please help?

    Many thanks

  • Juza_the_Cloud

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

  • Josh Arg

    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

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

  • navik

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

  • steve

    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

    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

  • Humz

    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

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

  • deku

    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

    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

    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

    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


  • Cris

    you dont have to downgrade it just download ziphone by going to works for Itouch and iphone 10000%

  • matt o

    help need help fixing my sources

  • Eug

    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

    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

    I have exactly the same problem as Eug. All new sources I added go under uncategorized, except and the BigBoss doesn’t work either. I would really appreciate some help!

  • jfr

    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


    I am trying to add the 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).


  • Marco

    “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 !


  • humza

    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

    gracias, me funciono perfecto despues de horas de busqueda.

  • 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”
