Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

I really enjoy MusicBox, but I did an update and now can't use it.

Is there away to install an older version of MusicBox from a old ZIpped file or folder and then put it onto my iPhone using SSH. Does anyone know where I can get and older version of MusicBox... An older repository or something.

Would really appreciate the help.

Thanks, Bmcc81

If you have an older version in your computer's iTunes, delete the one in you phone and sync.

@justinred Music Box is a package on BigBoss, not an App Store app.

If you want the older versions of music box that works with iPhone 3g then add this link [removed] to your Cydia Sources and you should be able to find on there

Does anyone now a way to fix that?

I edited your answer - it's not OK to redistribute copyrighted packages through other sources, even if the original package was a free package. The developer didn't authorize hosting it in some other source, so we can't do that.

Have you tried emailing the developer to ask him for a copy of the older version? Or maybe to report the problems with the new version and ask him to fix them?

I did try but the developer seems not the kind to care as he didn't reply to me. I got YouTube to mp3 app instead. It requires more searches and i can't delete unwanted songs. Still, it's better than nothing.

Heyy there... :)

I also really liked the music box app, but since i now have the iphone 5 with ios 6, im still waiting for the unthethered jailbreak -.- I still have a ipodtoch 2g which i havnt used in quite a long time. I restored it but noticed that it no longer supports the new music box app. After some research i finally found how to get the older version. Try adding the this source and installing it from there. It also should work for other idevices.

Hope this helps :D

I guess you didn't read @britta's comment above to another answer with a myrepospace source.
