  1. you’ll need to jailbreak your iPad via [go to for detailed instructions] [don’t forget to change your default password on your iPad]
    once you’re done, you should see “cydia” app on your iPad (don’t worry if your iPad becomes an iPhone for a min – all you have to do is respring)
  2. install iMobileCinema, but since its’ development has been paused, use this repository instead of (which is dead. if you have added this repo & have issues w/ cydia click here):
