Disclaimer : techulus.com don’t encourage users or recommend them to use Installous app downloader or any of its alternatives to install .Deb & .IPA files on iOS devices. techulus.com hold no responsibility for your usage of these apps or we are not affliated with any developer mentioned in the post. This post is to provide you a detailed information about the updated content on the Internet. There are many developers who are putting their efforts to build or create iOS Apps for Apple iTunes Store. So we recommend you to pay a couple of bucks or dollars and buy the genuine apps instead of piracy-related apps.

#1: AppCake

AppCake is one of the best Installous alternative. While the basic functioning is same, the major difference is that AppCake is only restricted to iOS devices that have been jailbroken. For those users who haven’t jailbroken, this app cannot be used.

#2: Zeusmos

Using this, it is possible to have paid apps without any cost. The beauty of this app lies in its functionality. By using this, users wouldn’t even have to jailbreak their devices. This gives this app an edge, since it is one of the few ones around that is offering such flexibility of usage for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

#3: vShare

vShare is one of the best cydia tweaks that is same as Installous. There is a difference between using vShare and Installous when the interface UI & several variations are considered. It is formerly known as AppVV and a common resource was used by the Hackulo.us’s Installous too. AppSync on Cydia is required to make vShare app to work i.e., installation of “hackulo.us” repository is needed.

How To Change The Dock Indicator Light In Mac OS X

Change the Color of the Dock Indicator Lights in OS X with MacUtil

We’ll cover the quick method first, using a free third party tweak utility called MacUtil. If you’d rather do it manually on your own, or use different colors than what are offered by MacUtil, jump below for the manual approach:

After extracting MacUtil, open it and click on the button next to “Change Indicator Light Color for Open Applications”

  • Enter the administrator password to authenticate the changes
  • Select the color you wish to change

By making these steps, you will be able to change your default color of your dock indicator light to any color you want like (Green, Light, Yellow and etc…)

If you’re simply aiming to make the indicator lights more obvious, “Vivid” is the obvious choice, which essentially brightens up the default option, making it a bit more obvious which apps are active and which aren’t.
Whatever color you choose, changes are made instantly and they take effect quickly, so there is little harm to trying a few and seeing which you like best.
Here is “Vivid”, which makes it much easier to see:
And that’s what the yellow color will looks like and that’s the one I prefer:
While in case you don’t know how to use the app, I’ve made a little steps on how to change the dock indicator color in Mac OS X manually which means you will have to change some things and add some codes:
    • From the Finder, use Command+Shift+G and to summon Go To Folder and enter the following path:
/System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/
  • Use the “Folder Search” feature in the upper right corner, narrow the search down to only the “Resources” folder, and and look for “indicator_”
    • Select all and make a copy of these files to a folder on the desktop called “Indicator Backup” – this is so that you can easily revert back to defaults should you decide your replacement indicators are unpleasant
    • Modify or replace the Resources/ directory contents to change the indicators, focus on the following files:
indicator_large.png
indicator_large@2x.png
indicator_medium_simple.png
indicator_medium_simple@2x.png
indicator_medium.png
indicator_medium@2x.png
indicator_small_simple.png
indicator_small_simple@2x.png
indicator_small.png
indicator_small@2x.png
    • Go to the Terminal and kill the Dock to refresh it for changes to take effect
killall Dock
  • Enjoy your new Dock indicator icons
For what it’s worth, the “@2x” suffix indicates whether the image file is sized for retina displays or not, and if you don’t have a retina-equipped Mac then you don’t really need to replace those for the changes to take effect.
