Snapchat is known for its jailbreak detection shenanigans and it seems they have just started to throw compatibility error for all users. Here’s how you can fix it.
Table of Contents
What does the compatibility error mean?
Snapchat and other applications optimize their app or software for the latest operating system version of a manufacturer.
This is done in order to provide the best experience possible to all users in a standard manner.
Therefore, once it detects an older firmware version, it throws a compatibility error.
You’re using a version of Snapchat or operating system that’s no longer supported. Please upgrade your device’s operating system and update to the newest app version to use Snapchat. Thanks!
This error pops up as soon as you try to open Snapchat. Here’s how this error looks like.
This, of course, is not an issue for users who are using a non-jailbroken device. However, for those of who are still using a jailbreak, fixing this error can get a bit tough.
Here are a few working fixes you can try to solve this problem.
How to Fix “No longer supported” error in Snapchat
1. Reinstall Snapchat
- First of all, delete Snapchat from your device completely.
- Open App Store and reinstall it from the App Store.
- Try opening it again and check if it works.
- If, for some reason, it still doesn’t work like it’s supposed to, reboot your device to non-jailbroken mode.
- Now, repeat steps 1 and 2, and check if you are able to get it working.
Remember, once the above method gets working, login quickly and only then enable your jailbreak afterward.
2. Install Phantom
Phantom is still working and can counteract this compatibility error easily. Just make sure you grab an older IPA and it will work.
If you don’t have the necessary IPA, simply leave a comment below.
Were you able to fix it?
This issue obviously exists only in the latest version. If your primary device is running, for example, iOS 9.1 and you are still using an older version, you won’t get this error.
If you are still not able to get it working, leave a comment below.

Comment Text*i don’t have an ipa
I have a main account and a backup account – main account when login in gives me this error, backup account works fine ?? Weird issue !! using normal snapchat from AppStore
I have re-installed, cleaned up my phones files but still not working, any ideas welcomed.
That’s because they have flagged your main account. There’s no fix for that, unfortunately.
WIll they flag it permanently or is it for 12 hours?
It’s normally temporary, they don’t ban users permanently.
There’s no way for me to use a Snapchat tweak even if I jailbreak my phone? Or is there somewhere I can check updates on Snapchat ++?
No, there’s no way to do that as of right now. You can check updates here or from the developer’s Twitter handle (which is largely inactive). I always update here so keep following the site.
Even after I install any tweak from cydia. I cant find it on my iphone. Please help. I did jailbreak by yalu app
Use Cydia Eraser.
when will be next snapchat ++ update on ios 11.3.1 and does it work for old version of my snapchat account?
No idea when the developer will update his tweak. No, it won’t bypass the DRM even on an old account.
Even after I install any tweak from cydia. The tweak doesn’t appear on my screen! It is installed successfully but i cant find it. Tweak is nowhere. Note: i have done my jailbreak from yalu app.
Hi, where can I find an older IPA version of phantom? Is tutu app good?
Yes, you can try Tutu but no IPA will work right now. Cokepokes is developing a new version that will be released very soon.
This might be a long shot, but would there be an ipa for phantom/any way to get the last compatible version of snapchat on an iphone 5 on 6.1.4 to work again? Thanks.
Not possible anymore.
Any tips for IOS 11.3? I’m getting that error message for Snapchat ++ and the other tweaked Snapchat apps, but if I login to a different account it works.
That’s because your older account has been flagged by them. Your new account will work momentarily but they will ban it eventually.
Do you know if we’ll be able to use any of the Snapchat tweaks in the future?
Yes, you will be able to use them if developers are able to bypass the DRM.
I recently tried to see if phantom lite worked on the newer versions of snapchat, I used app admin to download version 10.24.0 which is one of the earliest versions with the newer snapchat layout, it worked fine for a couple of days then I got the “you’re using a third party application..” message from snapchat which resulted in my account being blocked for 12 hours. After the block I downgraded back to snapchat version 10.3.1 but get the “You’re using a version of Snapchat or operating system” error when trying to log in with my primary account, but that same snapchat version let’s my secondary accounts log in with no problem, do you think this is temporary or I’ll never be able to log in to older versions with my primary account again?
The latest update blocks almost all tweaks. No idea how long will this wave last or will it even come to a halt in the future.
I have been using a tweaked app Scothman. It has stopped working suddenly. I reinstalled it but then it said “ your device or operating system no longer supports this version .. thanks” how long will this issue be for ? Any solution?
No fix so far.
hey im have been using snapchat ++ for a while, i got it from tutuapp and after days of usage it says that i have to verify it again which doesnt really work thats why i just reinstall it from the tutuapp and it would work. but today, i got the same pop-up that i have to verify it so i got in uninstalled then downloaded again, but this time it wont actually begin to install. any explanation to this? thanks!
Simply install it from Panda Helper VIP (Download Panda Helper)
I cannot log in the Snapchat+ it says this version is no longer supported. I installed it from tutuapp. Please help me to fix it
They have blocked all tweaks/apps. Wait for a new update.
I tried by sideloading snapchat plus ipa by cydia impactor.but when i try to log in it says u r using third party application. Please log in from official Snapchat app.please help me. Will it work if I download snapchat+ from cydia by jailbreaking my device?
If i download snapchat plus from cydia by jailbreaking my device. Will it work then?
Nothing is working right now.
Ahh okay. So what now? Wait?
Yes, wait for a developer to develop a working DRM bypass.
Okay thanks. What’s your account?
The link is given in the sidebar (twitter.com/yalujb).
I have a serious problem regarding yalu. Yesterday i re jailbreak my iphone6s after long time. I clicked the “Go” button inside yalu app. After respring, my phone is jailbroken, tweaks which were already installed earlier started working. But cydia crashes. I dont know why! Any solution?
Try this – Yalufix
Thaks alot bro. Yalu fix , fixed my cydia. And i heard that scothman snapchat new version is working now?
Welcome. No, it’s not working.
Any website or twitter account where i can get the notification from developer for new version of Snapchat plus? Thanks mate.
Usually, the developer doesn’t release any updates apart from updating the tweak directly in his repository. You can follow our account for the latest sideload and jailbreak news.
Hello, I downloaded Snapchat++ from the TutuApp . I can log in from 2 different accounts but when I try to log in from my main account it says “You’re using a version of Snapchat or operating system that’s no longer supported” . Why does it not work for my main account ?
Note: my main account was locked for 12 hours last week.Could that be the problem ?
Yes, the new DRM is insane and also uses server-side data to track your account.
I have the exact same problems here. Any solution found ?
When I log in with the normal snap chat it does work but from snap+ it doesn’t work
It seems they have blocked it.
Hello I can’t update the newest version for snap++ , I did update but still it doesn’t work, plz help me to solve it out
Hey are their any updates for a newer version was previously using snap+ which is no longer working?
No updates yet but you can try the one from TutuApp. It’s working well for a lot of users.
This thing happened to me aswell recently and im so stressed out that my snapchat has got permanently banned or not and im scared.. When i log onto my snapchat account that message pops out, but when i log onto another account it works fine.. ive also checked if my account was banned and apparently it wasnt.. i dont know what to do and i really need help..
A ban wave is currently in effect but they will never permanently ban you. Try using another version, for example, the one in TutuApp.
Im using snapchat phantom but it doesn’t work because it keeps giving me the error ‘no longer supported’ when i try to log in but normal snapchat works fine.
Are you using the IPA version?
I don’t believe so my device is not jailbroken i downloaded snap phantom from tweakbox. Also all the other hacked snapchats do not work i.e snapchat++, snapblue ect
No my device is not jailbroken
Alright, then the IPA file you are using is built on an older version of Snapchat, which is why you are getting this error.
Is there anyway to fix this because before it was working fine and i have friends that also have snapchat++ and it is working fine for them. Thanks for the help 😀
Usually, Snapchat’s bans/soft bans can target anyone out of the blue. It all boils down to how lucky you really are.
Will this error/ban eventually go away?
This again depends on how lucky you are. I recommend getting a hacked app that is built on a newer version of the original app.
I believe this is only a soft ban to my account because i’ve tried another account and had it work perfectly so hopefully it goes away and i can get a hacked app which is the new verison thanks
Welcome. I will let you know if I get my hands on a workaround.
Don’t mind me asking but what’s IPA and how to download it I’m also having the same problem please help 🙏🏻😫
Ipa is the app format in iOS. You can easily install it through TutuApp without any other tools.
I’ve try and it did not work please help 🙏🏻😢
There’s no other workaround for no-jailbreak users at present.
Hey I have iOS 11.2.5 and I keep getting this message
Weird. Did you try reinstalling the app?
mine is running a 9.3.5 software an says its non compatible
what does the older version of PHANTOM look like
It has the older layout.
I still can’t get into my account. I can create a new one but when I try to log in to my actual account I can’t. This happend after I tried to log back into my account after logging in on a different phone temorarily that had a better camera. I made a new account thinking mine was hacked or something and again, logged into my account on a different phone, then logged out and logged in on mine and the same message is now appearing. What can I do? Thanks.
Hello, Cynthia. Is your device running a Snapchat jailbreak tweak or hacked sideloaded app?
I am having the same problem as cynthia
Any tips for IOS 8.1?
Hello, CJ. You must update as there’s no fix for your version as far as I know.
