I’m now going to answer some of the questions that we get asked most often:
Fix Untrusted Developer:
You may, when you first use TweakBox, be faced with an Untrusted Developer error message. To fix this, simply tell Apple that the app source is trusted:
- Open the Profiles and Device Management page in Settings > General
- Find the installer profile in the list of app profiles and tap on it
- Tap the Trust button and come out of Settings
- Try the app installer again, the error will not appear and you can use TweakBox to download your apps and games.
Does TweakBox Void Warranty?
No, it won’t because you don’t install it in a way that will go against the security that Apple has in place and, unlike Cydia, it doesn’t break into the root of the iOS firmware. However, should you install a Cydia tweak from TweakBox, you must delete it before you return your device to an Apple store otherwise your warrant may be voided.
It Is 100% Safe?
Yes, it is. TweakBox has undergone thorough and very rigorous testing during all development stages, ensuring there is no malware and no way for any to be introduced. The developers monitor the app very carefully and, if any bugs or issues do arise, they are fixed immediately. It doesn’t take up too much in the way of device resources and it doesn’t clash with any other app or service on your system. To work, TweakBox doesn’t access the root of your device like Cydia does, thus it doesn’t open your device to any external security issues and neither do any apps or games from the installer. Lastly, everything is protected by SSL encryption, keeping your data and you safe.
Jailbreaking and installing TweakBox differ in one main way – jailbreaking has the potential to open your device to security issues and malware; TweakBox doesn’t. Using TweakBox will also not be a reason for Apple to void your warranty either; jailbreaking is.
Last but not least
Is It Possible to Request an App or Game?
Yes, it is but there are no guarantees that your request will be actioned. You can use the app developers Facebook feed below to do this but keep in mind that yours will be one of many such requests they get and not all apps or games can be added to TweakBox app installer.
TweakBox is definitely one of the best installers we have with a very active admin and plenty of choice for all users. Download TweakBox today and get more tips like this by following us on Facebook.
