Ok, so here's how I got it working. You should be running apptap in no time!

first, open the jailbreak.toc2rta.com exploit in mobile safari. let it crash the browser. then follow these instructions


5. Jailbreak
--1. Download iPHUC and friends from Rapidshare
--2. Extract the contents so that iphuc, fstab, and iPhonefs are all on the Desktop
--3. If you don't have libreadline, download it and extract the zip to your Macintosh HD
--4. Open Terminal.app located in Applications>Utilities
--5. Type cd ~/Desktop and hit return
--6. Type ./iphuc and hit return
--7. Type getfile /dev/rdisk0s1 iPhonefs/rdisk0s1 314572800 and hit return. This will take about five minutes so grab something to drink in the meantime. Once complete, there will be a file named "rdisk0s1" in your "iPhonefs" folder
--8. Add .dmg to the end of the file. It should end up being rdisk0s1.dmg
--9. Double click the file to mount it
--10. Open the newly mounted Snowbird3A109a.UserBundle drive and open the "etc" folder. Replace the fstab file inside the "etc" folder with the supplied fstab file.
--11. Unmount the image
--12. Back in Terminal, assuming that you've kept iPHUC up and running, type putfile iPhonefs/rdisk0s1.dmg /dev/rdisk0s1 and hit return. This will take another minute or so. When it's finished, reboot the iPhone. You're jailbroken!
6. Install SSH
--1. Download iNdependence from its Google code page here
--2. Open iNdependence and go to the "SSH" tab
--3. Click "Install SSH/SFTP/SCP" and follow the instructions. It will ask to reboot the iPhone several times
--4. When you're done, SSH into your iPhone from the Terminal by typing ssh -l root your.iPhones.ip.address. When asked the password is alpine. If it gives a fuss, you may need to remove the "known_hosts" file from /Users/YourUser/.ssh/
--5. Accept the key by typing yes and hitting return if asked. Leave the window open.
--6. Open your favorite FTP (I recommend CyberDuck) client and log in using your iPhone's IP address, root for the username and alpine for the password. Make sure to use SFTP and not plain old FTP
--7. If you're not already there, navigate to /var/root and rename Media to Media_sym
--8. Rename MediaBackup to Media. Keep the FTP and SSH windows open.
--9. Open iTunes and allow it to activate
7. Install AppTapp
--1. Download Nullriver's AppTapp
--2. Right click or control click AppTapp Installer and click "Show Package Contents". Navigate to Contents>Resources
--3. Using the FTP application, copy Installer.app from the Resources folder into the Applications folder on your iPhone
--4. Back in the terminal, SSH into your iPhone again (if you're not already), give the comand chmod -Rf +x /Applications/ and hit return.
--5. Slide to unlock your iPhone then type /Applications/Installer.app/Installer and hit return to launch Installer.
--6. After AppTapp opens, press control+c to close it
--7. Open Safari on iPhone and navigate to (link removed, site no longer online)
--8. Tap yes to add it to Installer
--9. Back in terminal, using ssh, type /Applications/Installer.app/Installer and hit return to launch Installer again.
--10. Install Trip1PogoStick located under the "System" category to enable scrolling and applications.
--11. When you're done, reboot the iPhone and close all your windows. You now have AppTapp.

You can say that again (you don"t really have to)

Guess we'll wait some more. Like the US Marine Core will tell you, "Hurry up and wait!"
errrrm...it's Marine Corps (I know from personal experience). But CORPS sure is a silly way to spell CORE, isn't it? I agree.:p

(and NO, it's not pronounced "corpse". :p
