My apple TV 3 is not showing up in Cydia Impactor. I have just followed the steps above, but only deleted itunes using app cleaner, as I don’t know how to actually uninstall it. Is there an official way to uninstall it please?
I’m assuming that as it is showing up in itunes that the cable I’m using is ok and that might hopefully be the only thing wrong.
Cydia Impactor is having issues as of right now. Wait for an update from Saurik.
i cant install the cydia extender through the impactor its saying my apple id isnt right but i use it for my devices?
Just use Reprovision.
I’m having trouble with my cydia impactor. When click on the .exe file to open it and it opens up, it is blank. It doesn’t let me choose anything and i also have my iphone connected with a usb. I tried reinstalling itunes and it still doesn’t work. I don’t know if there is something wrong that i’m doing.
Which version are you using? If you are on the latest one already, try downgrading it.
How large is too large of a file for Cydia impactor – is 700MB too big ?
No, it can sideload almost all types of files no matter their size. The only downside to sideloading a big file is that it will take a lot of time.
i tunes see my iphone5s,dr fone see,but impactor no.
I have tried all this and seeing ?[0000000000E] when my device is connected.
Try using it on a Mac.
