Sideloading Apps

For support in English, ask for help on the r/Jailbreak Discord Server.

Required Reading

Semi-untethered jailbreaks require the use of a sideloaded app to jailbreak. Apps sideloaded with a regular Apple ID will expire after 7 days (or 365 days with a Developer Apple ID). After that period, you will no longer be able to open that app to re-jailbreak.


If you are using an iOS 16 beta, you will need to take extra steps beforehand to open sideloaded apps:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Go to Privacy & Security and find the Developer Mode entry
  3. Toggle Developer Mode on, then press Reboot
  4. After the device reboots, unlock it, and confirm that you want to enable Developer Mode
  • If you have a passcode enabled, you'll need to enter it.
