What is Sideloadly?
Changes to Apple’s signing mechanism have left Cydia Impactor broken. Saurik leaving the jailbreak development scene has further exacerbated the problem. In comes Sideloadly.
Developed by iOSGods, Sideloadly is a sideload utility for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It is a minimalistic Cydia Impactor alternative that comes with a clean user interface and powerful new features.
Here’s a detailed breakdown of its features:
- Quick sideloading: Sideload apps with a free or a paid developer Apple account.
- Drag-and-drop support: Simply drag and drop IPA files to install them.
- Save Apple ID: Save your Apple ID credentials for quick installation.
- Change Bundle ID: Change the bundle ID of an IPA file to install multiple copies of an app.
- Change app name: Change the app name on your home screen.
- Jailbreak-only mode: Dedicated mode for jailbroken devices.
Currently, Sideloadly only supports the Windows operating system. However, the developers intend to add support for macOS systems in the future updates.
Important: We recommend using a “burner” or throwaway Apple ID with this utility. Please DO NOT use your main Apple ID with third-party utilities.
- 0.15.1 (Windows)
- iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
- A computer running Windows operating system
- Internet connection
How to install IPA files on iPhone/iPad using Sideloadly
Step 1 First and foremost, install the non-Microsft Store version of iTunes on your computer. If you have the Microsoft Store version on your computer, uninstall it.
Step 2 Download Sideloadly using the download link above and install it.
Step 3 Connect your Apple device to your computer.
Step 4 Run the Sideloadly app and ensure that it recognizes your device.
Step 5 Add your Apple ID email in the “Apple account:” field. Remember, you must use the same Apple ID credentials on your iPhone or iPad as well. If your device uses a different Apple ID, then log out of the current Apple ID and log in with your new credentials.
Step 6 Drag the IPA file of the application you want to install onto Sideloadly’s window as shown below. We will use Odyssey jailbreak’s IPA file for demonstration purposes. Move your IPA file to your desktop for quick installation.
Step 7 (optional) Select Advanced options to access the following options:
- Try to support iOS 8+
- Remove limitation on supported devices
- Enable UIFileSharing
- Change app name
- Change app version
- Change app bundle ID (for installing multiple copies)
- Don’t use Anisette authentication
- Jailbreak-only mode
Step 8 Press Start. Enter your password when you are prompted for it. Again, we recommend using a throwaway Apple ID account with this tool.
Step 9 Press OK once you have entered your Apple ID password. Sideloadly will now send your email ID and password details to Apple’s servers.
Step 10 Once Apple’s servers validate your credentials, the installation process will begin. Open the log and wait for the installation to finish.
Step 11 Disconnect your Apple device from the computer once the installation is over.
That’s all there’s to it. If you run into issues during installation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us in the comments.
