With no jailbreak in sight for the foreseeable future, jailbreakers are starting to get a bit concerned. It’s been a long time since we have been able to download tweaks from Cydia to modify the stock iOS apps and use new third party ones to give us new and better features. With iOS 10 release , the iOS 10 Jailbreak [ext link] tweak developers have more features to work with but, without a jailbreak they are stuck in limbo long with the rest of us.

There is a little hope on the horizon though and it comes in the shape of Mojo app installer. This is NOT a jailbreak and some of you may only want to use it as a temporary measure while we wait for the iOS 10 jailbreak . Mojo is similar in many ways to Cydia in that it allows you to download tweaks and external apps to give the stock iOS a significant boost in functionality. Some of the tweaks and apps available on Mojo cannot be found on the iOS app store, like the poplar screen recorder app, iRec.

Fix Mojo Not Working Issue :
While Mojo is a great installer, packed with useful content, it isn’t without its problems. Every user will find that, within a week of installing it, Mojo Installer will crash, and this is because Apple will revoke the certificate. They do this because the app certificate is not signed by them and isn’t considered valid, but you can get around this by downloading Anti Revoke [ext link]. This small tool will work to protect your app certificate, stopping Apple from revoking it. Get all the details and a download tutorial at the linked article.
Mojo Errors :
If you are unlucky you may come across one of two errors, neither of which is serious and neither of which is hard to fix. If you come against a Profile Installation Failed error, you can find the solution in the given link. If one of your installed Mojo apps doesn’t run, go to Settings > General > Profile. From there, locate the app on the list and tap on Trust. This is caused by an issue with the certificate and is easily solved.
