Mac App Store Cracked! Here’s How to install Cracked Apps [Guide]

by Jeffry on January 6, 2011

After the release of the Mac AppStore, Logan of Appinsect has devised a new way of cracking Mac store applications. Interestingly, the method does not use KickBack or Hackulous’s Installous 4.0. The method only replaces the signature files from free apps into the paid apps. Follow the simple steps below to install cracked apps on your Mac.

Mac App Store Cracked

How to Install Cracked Mac Store Apps on Mac

Step 1: Install the latest Snow Leopard update (10.6.6) and sign into the new App Store (in your dock).

Step 2: Download Twitter for Mac and navigate to Applications folder to locate Twitter. Just right click and select Show Package Contents and then navigate to Contents folder. Copy _CodeSignature, _MASReceipt and CodeResources.

Step 3: Download Angry Birds (Link taken Down!).

Step 4: Run the dmg file and drag Angry Birds into the Applications folder.

Step 5: Right click and select Show Package Contents and then navigate to Contents folder and delete _CodeSignature, _MASReceipt and CodeResources.

Step 6: Now paste in the files you copied from the Twitter.app.

Step 7: Done. Enjoy Angry Birds and any other .app file from the new Mac App Store that you can find online.

    very useful guide  for those who use cracked apps

  • Jhgzehjg

    This only works if the app doesn’t check the signature correctly, so it isn’t a valid way of doing things…

  • http://twitter.com/ganjardenis Ganjar Denis

    i tried and it works. but i have one big question. since it’s not appeared as purchased in mac app store, then how to update?

  • Lolu

    after installation it is not working only…any solution ???

  • Anonymous

    This isn’t Apple’s fault. Apple gives a way for developers to protect their apps, but most of the devs didn’t use that mechanism and skipped it. Apps that take Apple’s advice aren’t crackable with this method.

  • Rossvillafane

    I tried it and it works

  • Agustalloret

    yeah. i don’t understand… how do i get that .dmg?

    Yet, instead of informing the public, one of your employees has a illegal copy that he cracks. You suck, F_ing Pirates!

  • MadMyth

    anyone tested it?

  • madmyth

    does it work?

  • Kevinalaceyjr

    where did u get ur apps at

  • Mihir

    There seems to be a huge error in the article. Please change the word “delete” in step 5 after “navigate to Contents folder and ” to copy.

    Other then dat a good step by step representation of the process.

  • enigma

    serious flaw is getting the dmg files

  • http://www.myspace.com/xuzhin xuzhin

    anybody got any links to any other apps?

  • chris

    how can we download the .DMG file for other apps ?
    this is only shows for angry birds.

  • ALEIX

    where can we download the app??

  • toco

    Yeah, but, where can we download the app to run the DMG in our mac.
    If we do from the mac app store, we´ll have to leave the money before we put the “three items within the content folder”.
    DId I explain properly?

    thanks a lot!!

  • Olli

    ok cool man.. pls dont forget to post where u posted those apps??

  • Peebrian202869

    — WARNING —
    This does not make everything in the App Store free, this only cracks apps that would have to be uploaded some else first! /speakingtoidiots

    • dma

      Lol noob. READ it before you comment.

  • Vovandos

    Not working to me :((

  • Jay

    Ok fine it worked for angry birds… but now, maybe it’s obvious and I just dont see it, How do you get the rest of the app for free? When I go back to mac app store you still have to pay for apps…
    Can anyone help me?

    • Paquito

      Yo have to look for them on the net (Google or similar)…

  • http://www.emailstotheworld.co.uk willi

    looks great but where can I get the .dmgs from in the first place?

  • Mac Made

    On the previous blog post you guys stated that you do not condone “piracy”, and in this post you guys are even giving a link to download an app and showing how to crack it. How about you guys stick to one thing… :/

  • Thej

    Tryed it just for testing purposes. Works great. Remember the article says that this works for APP store apps downloaded from elsewhere! Do not try downloading apps from the appstore because obviously you would be charged before you get them. Think of this like Appsync : )

  • Excitante_

    its not working on mine too..The app crashes ;)

  • Ancelo

    Not worked for me. The app crashes.

  • danny

    Any more games besides angry birds?

  • ed

    pay attention and follow directions before u talk shit…dumbass

    worked for me thanks!

  • Strange_brew81

    This definitely did NOT work for me. Followed instructions EXACTLY…should’ve known that twitter files won’t crack the new app store.
    I suggest you quit trying to sucker people into paying for a bunch of apps that they think are free until they get their credit card bill and see that they are charged.

    • 2oublethink

      Hey idiot, did you even see that theres a bit.ly link for the Angry Birds DMG? How would you be charged for something you didn’t even download from the app store?

      • 2oublethink

        Btw, it works perfectly fine for me.
