Kakh, which iOS do you have? Jepp 2.0 is 32bit therefore can NOT be installed on iOS 11 and above. You need to installed activated 2.7.4.
Akila, can you provide the link to download your activated 2.7.4 for kakh?
Ah, I didn't know that. I am running the Electra jailbreak on an iPad Air 2 with iOS 11.2.6. Downloading the v2.7.4 activated link from Akila now.

EDIT 1: Okay, managed to install v2.7.4 via iFunbox but could either of you kindly post or PM me instructions on how to keep it activated and update it to 2.9.1 or v3 because at the moment, as soon as I open the app, it goes to the activation screen and asks for user details or demo mode. I remember getting around this back in iOS9 days but have forgotten since.

EDIT 2: Just experimenting with the app. After installing v2.7.4, I didn't open the app and continued to copy the baseline files over through iFunbox into 'var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/AppGUID/'. This made sure that the app remained activated when I started it but now I get the following error: https://ibb.co/vd9zMNq
I've hit 'Resume' several times but it doesn't do anything.

I guess I missed an important step somewhere but I'm not sure what it is. Would gladly accept help from either of you.

you need to follow the instructions PDF in the ZIP file :)
it is always best practice to read the manual :)

Would love to but the last link you posted (https://yadi.sk/d/NP-HXPpYh4Nruw) doesn't contain any PDF for instructions which is why I sort of just experimented with it.
The link also says 'Mobile FD 2.9.1 Activated' but the actual version installed is v2.7.4.

that is correct ZIP (Mobile FD 2.9.1 Activated)
it's fine, in the ZIP file you would see the readme file, and the 2.7.4 installation.
follow the instructions in the PDF/readme file

You can see here: https://ibb.co/31kVC69 what is in the ZIP file. As you can see, there is no PDF/Readme inside, just the v2.7.4 app and 'Baseline' folder.

Thanks, I have it all working now on v3.0.1. Next would be to insert manuals into the app and then it would be fully functional.

Here is what I did in case anyone else wants to try it:
1. Downloaded JeppFD v2.7.4 activated from here: https://yadi.sk/d/NP-HXPpYh4Nruw
2. Installed via iFunbox with iPad running iOS 11.2.6 (Electra Jailbreak)
3. Once installed via iFunbox, copied data from 'Baseline' folder in 1. above.
4. Started JeppFD on iPad so it can register itself as an activated copy (Ignore errors)
5. Removed JeppFD from iPad and downloaded latest version of app (v3.0.1 from the AppStore)
6. Download latest data (for v274 or higher from users like Turkish on the forum)
7. Copy that data over into relevant folders through iFunbox (location in Akila's readme)
8. Delete file 'IFDCStaticModelStore.sqlite' in JeppFD through iFunbox
9. Run JeppFD, let it update Enroute data (about 600mb download)

This gave me up to date Enroute and Terminal Data.

Result: https://ibb.co/Qj798kJ

Many thanks to Akila and DirtyRussian for helping out on the forum.

I wonder, would there be a way (an app?) that you can use to connect JeppFD to simulators like X-Plane 11/Prepar3D for live position tracking?

UPDATE 1: The manuals are definitely in the app as they are part of the data in Steps 7 and 8 above, I even see them in iFunbox (Documents\Data\airway_manuals) but JeppFD app itself doesn't see them so I haven't found a way to view them yet. Will keep experimenting to see what does and doesn't work.

the initial ENROUTE download working fine, the challenge starts once a new ENROUTE update is released, than it doesn't update it correctly.
at least that is what I saw on my iPad, it went into an update loop.
It Download updates, than it uZIP/install updates, then again, when finished, it claims in needs to be undated again.. and repeating the same all over.

there will never be one as JePP FD is not meant for Simulation and Simulation platforms do not encourage using JeppFD

I should have updated the post above. I applied your data from the first page of this thread and as per your first post here, the manuals now show up fine.
Hopefully, we can find a solution to updating the enroute data past the initial cycle. Other than that, I'd say you've done a great job with it all, thank you!

so how did you install the update data on your 3.0.1 once you deleted the 2.74 and installed a fresh 3.0.1?
what Option you used (Option 1/2/3)? did you copy the Cycle data from Turkish ZIP file/download or the one I posted at the 1st page?
I am trying to put in the pieces here to get a complete picture.
