    Hi All,

    As the title says, I'm wondering if there is a way as an iOS 7.1.2 user to trick the app store into being on iOS 8 so I can download pokemon go. :(.

    I'm aware of ways to trick certain apps into thinking your are not jailbroken, but I haven't heard of a way to trick iOS 8 version for this.

    Is this possible? If so, how?

    Cheers

    You'll need to look up the build number for 7.1.2 as you need it to be exact. I've done this before and it worked to spoof my iOS version. NOTE: Pokémon Go may not work on your device even if you do manage to download it. It may use frameworks or APIs that require iOS 8, so beware of crashes or broken functionality

    So I tried this and when doing it the app store doesn't work. As in nothing loads from apple. Almost like apple knows someone is trying to trick the system so they don't load any information into the app store.
