Fix Untrusted Developer Error:

When you try to use TweakBox for the first time, you will get an Untrusted Developer error. This is Apple’s way of saying that this is an unofficial app and they don’t trust the developer. You can so here’s how to fix it:

  1. When the error message appears, note the developer name
  2. Open Settings>General and tap on Profiles
  3. Find the developer name and tap it
  4. Trust it, close Settings and try again.

TweakBox Features:

Inside TweakBox you will find four distinct app categories:

  • App Store Apps – iOS app store content for free
  • TweakBox Apps – unofficial apps, emulators, streaming apps and more
  • Tweaked Apps – stock apps tweaked to work better
  • Modified Games – stock games unlocked and modified with extras

Requesting Apps:

You can ask the developers for specific apps or games using their Twitter feed. Just make sure you give them the full app name. However, be aware that not all apps can be added and the developers also get a lot of similar requests – don’t be surprised if yours doesn’t happen

TweakBox App Won’t Download or Can’t Be Verified:

This is purely because the app is unofficial and it runs on expired enterprise certificates. Apple will revoke these, but the developers tend to keep on top of this and replace the certificates before you notice. It may be that you are downloading at the time they are doing this; just delete TweakBox and wait an hour or so; the certificate should have been replaced by then, and you can carry on

Note: The same error appears if you don’t delete a stock app before installing the modified ++ version

Fixing TweakBox Errors:

TweakBox is stable, but there are a couple of errors that are really easy to fix

Blank/White Screen:

  1. Delete TweakBox and reinstall it
  2. Open Settings > General > Profiles
  3. Tap the developer name
  4. Tap Trust and the app will work
