How to Uninstall Appsync without losing Jailbreak/Tweaks/Data [Bootloop Fix]

The jailbreak for iOS 10 has been long overdue. It was released last month for all 64-bit devices up to iOS 10.2. As you know, the main reason why a lot of users jailbreak is AppSync.

Update (February 3, 2017) – AppSync Unified has been updated for iOS 10/10.1.1/10.2. Read more about it here.

AppSync is a tool available on Cydia that allows you to install unsigned IPA files. AppSync was developed primarily for testing purposes.

It was geared towards developers only. However, tons of users use this powerful tool for pirating paid apps.

As always, a lot of users began asking about it on Twitter. Luca got so tired of hecklers on Twitter, he ended up blocking a lot of them.

It is not compatible with iOS 10 jailbreak and causes your device to bootloop. Even after repeated warnings, some users still installed Appsync.

iOS 10 devices got stuck in a bootloop as AppSync crashes installd whenever Cydia runs uicache.

Before we begin, we will use a network analyzer and SSH client to uninstall this malicious tweak. Here’s how to fix this problem.
