install skype on iosx 4.2

Skype is no more available for ios4.2 then there are 2 methods to have it anyway:

FIRST method is to use a previous version
1. download ifile
2. download skype ipa from iphone:
3. install it with iFile/Safari Download Manager/Installous:

  • Jailbroken iDevice
  • Installous (download from cydia)
  • Safari Download Manager
  • iFile

The idea is to download the file (.ipa) by your iDevice Safari (using Safari Download Manager), then to transfer the file (.ipa) to Installous downloads folder, then  you can install it with Installous

  • Start Safari, go to the webpage which contains the wanted game/app (.ipa) and start the download
  • When finished >> Open in iFile
    • iFile will take you to the needed folder = /User/Documents >> Click right upper tab (edit) >> Tick the downloaded file >> Click right lower tab (cut/copy)>>  Click Cut  >> Click right upper tab (Done)
  • Open Installous folder (from the same window) >> open Downloads folder inside Installous =/User/Documents/Installous/Downloads
    • Inside Downloads folder >> Click right upper tab (edit) >>  Click right lower tab (paste) >> Click Paste>> Click right upper tab (Done)
    • Run Installous now >> Click Downloads >> You will find your file (without thumbnail) >> Click your file >> Install >> You Are Done

SECOND Method is to ignore the compatibility:

2. with IFile ---> System/Library/CoreServices ---> SystemVersion.plist
3. or wth pc ---> itools ---> jailbroken data --- system/library/coreservice ---> systemversion.plist
4. Change BUILD version and Product Version (if u have 4.1 build 8B117 change to 5.0.1 or 5.1.1 ( 5.0.1 --- 9A405 or 5.1.1 --- 9B206)
5. Restart your IPhone
6. install skype
7. Change BUILD version back
