Fix “You’re using a version of Snapchat or operating system” Error

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.

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.
