    Sorry excuse my computer ignorance...I'm a little lost as what to do with ifile. I found the game I want to copy in ifile on my iPhone. But not sure what to do now. Is there a video explaination like on YouTube? Thanks!!

    When you say "1. find the app you want to copy, and copy it. any name will do" how do you do this?? -_- sorry for the simple questions!

    you would copy the folder that the app is in, usually named a bunch of random numbers/letters but theres a setting in iFile where you can show the name and not the numbers EITHER WAY that folder just copy and paste it so you have two of the same thing, and then go into that folder and there should be called something like game.app, go into that folder and find the Info.plist. open that up in iFile and change the bundle identifier. for example from com.apple.Maps to com.apple.Maps2 and you should be set. to change the display name edit the string underneath CFBundleDisplayName

    Hi, so I've figured it out, I've copied a game from applications folder and pasted it in documents (on ifile) the gone to the info.plist and changed the bundle identifier to a new name. Like you said. But nothing happens after I save. Am I missing a step?

    Once I figure this out I will be forever greatful to you!
    So I copied the game in applications. To make this easier I'm gunna just copy paste where I think I'm messing up.

    I put a 2 where I think the bundle identifier is. Correct? But no new game icon appears

    yea u copy paste it in applications.. just rename it of course. try rebooting. they dont show up right away for some reason, it should randomly show up. also make sure the permissions are the same as the rest

    Okay! It's there buttttt when I open the new icon. It works. Then the old one that I copied does not work. What's wrong? I'm not sure what permissions are. Could it be I havnt renamed the new game yet? Thx so much for your help!

    I have renamed the new copy. And left the original untouched. But the original no longer works. For the copy I put a 2 at the end of the bundle identifier and changed the display name. So why does the original not work now

    How do I rename the new folder directory? In the plist?

    Lost? Lol sorry about that.
    So I did all the steps. Copied the game I wanted. That's great. But the original game I used to copy will not run at all. So I have two game icons and only one runs!

    define what permissions are and where I check to make sure they are the same. I'll give it one more try. Thanks again for your help!
