How To Make Most iPhone Applications Compatible With The iPad

Nowadays the Apple products have become increasingly popular worldwide and lots of applications are developed every day. The iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPod touch includes all sort of new and revolutionary apps, but not all of them are compatible with the iPad.

Despite this problem, there is a way to stop the waiting for the apps to be made available for iPad as well, and make any application for iPhone and iPod touch to work on iPad without borders and pixelation, having support for a bigger size button and a 4-way orientation.

In order to perform this action you must take the following steps:

  1. Jailbreak iPad.

  2. After, install afc2add package.

  3. Next, install respring package.

  4. Install a SSH client or USB browser, or iFile or DiskAid directly on iPad.

  5. SSH into the iPhone and copy the whole application folder inside / Applications directory to computer, after transfer it to iPad / Application directory (this action has to be performed in case the app is not installed on iPad yet. Notice that you have to modify the permissions of the applications to 777.

  6. Now, go to the application you want to make compatible in /var/mobile/Applications folder.

  7. Open the info.plist in the application’s main folder.

  8. After that, you have to introduce the following code after the <string> line of “MinimumOSVersion” key:

&tl;key>UIDeviceFamily</key>
<array>
<integer>1</integer>
<integer>2</integer>
</array>

After performing these steps just respring and launch the app to make it work.
