Ok some or most ipa's can be turned into a deb file. This does not always work but its worth a try!

i'll use the Facebook app as an example.

1.) Rename Facebook.ipa to Facebook.zip

2.) Extract Facebook.zip then look for AppName.app inside the extracted files. Mine will be Facebook.app.

3.) Create a folder called FacebookApp and inside that create 2 directories - DEBIAN and Applications

4.) Drag the extracted Facebook.app into the newly created Applications folder.

5.) Go to the DEBIAN folder and create a new text document and name it control (no .txt extention, please remove it)

Inside the control file: it needs to look like this:

Package: com.company.appname
Version: Version Here
Name: App Name
Section: Section Name Here
Description: App Description.
Architecture: iphoneos-arm
Author: 

6.) You should chmod the file 755

7.) then SSH it to your iphone in /var/mobile and run dpkg-deb -b "FacebookApp" and you will then have a File called FacebookApp.deb and there .
