    Hi all,
    I'd like to install an old version of the BeIn Sports app, that's not available in the App Store anymore.
    I've found the .ipa for the app version I want (online) and downloaded it. How can I now get it onto my iPhone 6?
    Ive installed AppSync Unified 5.2, but I don't know what to do from here. Any ideas?

    Thanks :)

    Drag it into your iTunes Library. Take the newer onreout first.

    Whenever you update an app, the old version is placed in the trash. If you have not emptied the trash, you can save to a new folder for extraction later. Once trashed, though, it is gone.

    just open itunes and double click on the old ipa wherever it is on you hard drive, itunes should ask if you with to replace the other app if they used the same names. If not the same names it will just import itself

    Related to this question. I'm trying to install different versions of the same app. So I change the CFBundleIdentifer in the info.plist file inside the IPA. It installs properly but it won't run. App crashes immediately back to the springboard. Makes no difference if I edit the older or current version of the app. But those same edited IPAs work fine on older iPhone running 7.1.2. Not sure why renaming the CFBundleIdentifer stopped working with iOS 8 JB?
