    You used to be able to sideload a .ipa onto your device and get a 7-day certificate free. After the 7 days, I would turn back the time on the device to keep the app working. I have not updated my device (stayed on 9.3.3 ever since it came out) and for some reason in the last few months this trick does not work anymore, and the app will crash after 7 days.

    Any idea how it is figuring out its expired? I have not updated so unless they did some sneaky OTA patch for this, it should still work.

    Thanks.

    I am assuming that you want to side load the Pangu app to continue to jailbreak......and not pirate software.

    If that is the case, instead of side loading the Pangu App, you can go to Luca Todesco's website http://jbme.qwertyoruiop.com to re-jailbreak. This will put an icon on your screen, and that does not expire.

    You say the "app is crashing," and by that I think you mean Lydia Impactor, if that is the case, make sure you have the lastest Cydia Impactor, and the latest Java.

    If you actually develop apps, and would like more than 7 days, you can get a paid account, or you can find a website that will "Add" you to theirs for a few dollars. If you are actually developing apps, then why not use Xcode to compile the app?

    If you wish to side-load to pirate software, then you can go somewhere else for help.

    This is the Kodi app. I have the Pangu app and that did give a 1 year certificate.

    The problem is I used to be able to turn back the time after the 7 days and it would work again. I have not updated the device or anything but recently after 7 days it just crashes. It does not even say "This app is no longer available" any more, it just crashes after the 7 days. The Cydia Impactor and X-Code methods have the same result.

    Without updating, I don't know how they would have changed anything to make it not work. If I manually change the time ahead a week, it will say the app is no longer available when I go to launch. When I put it back, it works. But if I actually wait a week, it will just crash and changing the time won't fix it.

    Very weird.

    I believe when you launch it, it checks the certificate, and sees that the certificate is expired. Once it knows that it expired already, I think it is too late to go back to that certificate. I think there is something about the HOSTS file that might help you in that regard.

    If you're jailbroken, appsync can solve your problem and you'll never have to worry about signing anything.

    Worked great for me when I was playing around with x code tutorials and making small apps but didn't want to pay 99$ for developers account because I don't have any plans to launch something to the appstore.

    In my opinion, it would be best (long term) security wise, to get a developer account and compile the deb file etc. in Xcode, rather than using something like Cydia Impactor to load the iPA. Using programs like Impactor to input your Apple ID and password puts your account at risk. Once you set up your developer certificates for your devices, it only takes a matter of moments to get the IPA loaded to your ios device with Xcode.
