As of this writing, the latest iOS firmware that can be jailbroken is iOS 9.1. There has been no significant progress recently on a new jailbreak tool for newer versions of iOS such as iOS 9.2 – iOS 9.3.1 as Apple quickly patched most of the exploits that were known or used in previous jailbreak tools such as Pangu. There is also no way that you can downgrade back to iOS 9.1 as Apple has already closed the signing window making it impossible to downgrade.
With all that said, we recently stumbled upon an interesting app known as Mojo Installer that is an alternative to Cydia except that it works on non-jailbroken iOS devices. Yes you heard it right, this app doesn’t require a jailbreak and lets you install cool apps such as game emulators, screen recorders and much more.
To find out how you can install Mojo on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, follow the step-by-step guide below.
How to install Mojo on non-jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch
Step 2: Mojo’s website will be opened containing a detailed information of the app and its features. Get started by tapping on the install button as shown below
Step 3: You will be taken to the next page requesting you to build a custom profile and why it’s needed. Tap on the Build Custom Profile button
Step 4: The Settings app will launch with Mojo’s profile displayed. Press the Install button in top right corner to install the profile on your device. If you have passcode enabled then you will be required to enter it before proceeding
Step 5: You will now be taken back to the browser with a message indicating that the profile was installed successfully. On the same page, scroll down to the bottom and tap on the Install Mojo button to install the app on your device
Step 6: A confirmation message appears asking whether you’d like to install Mojo. Tap on the Install button to continue
Step 7: Once again, you will be taken back to the Settings app to install another profile. Proceed by tapping on the Install button. If a Warning screen appears, continue by pressing the Install button again
Step 8: You will then receive a message that the profile was installed successfully. Tap on the Done button and head to the Home screen
Step 9: You should now see Mojo’s app icon on your Home screen. Tap on it to launch the app
Step 10: On first launch, you will see a welcome screen along with a walkthrough of the app. You will also be required to wait for a few seconds until Mojo performs the initial configurations
Step 11: Once everything is done, the home page of Mojo app will be displayed. You can get started by installing apps from the Packages tab or adding a new source from the Sources tab. Keep in mind that some apps will add their own certificate on your device so you need to go to Settings -> General -> Profile and trust each of these individually to be able to launch them.
If you don’t have the default source added in Sources tab then tap on the plus ‘+’ button and type in the following URL: https://mojoinstaller.co/repo/
How to remove Mojo from your device
If you didn’t like Mojo or it doesn’t work as advertised, you can remove it by going to Settings -> General -> Profile, choose the Mojo Installer profile and tap on the delete button to remove it.
Note: As of this writing, the website is down maybe due to large amounts of traffic so you might be unable to install the app. You have to try a couple of times until you’re able to go through all the steps mentioned above.
