AltServer 1.5 Update with multi-device support, AltJIT compilation support, direct app sideloading
The AltStore Team describes AltServer v1.5 as a “much-awaited” upgrade featuring support for AltJIT, direct.ipa sideloading, multi-device usage, and improvements for the Mail app plugin, among other changes, in a Tweet, which we’ve provided a screenshot of for you above.
This release offers a significant remedy for a crashing issue for iOS or iPadOS 13 or older devices, according to the changelog for AltServer 1.4.9 Compatibility iOS 15.5 beta 2 and macOS Monterey 12.4 beta 2.
Those on iOS or iPadOS 14 or 15 can update to the latest version of AltStore using the app’s integrated “Update” button, but those on iOS or iPadOS 13 or older need re-sideload the latest version of AltStore using AltSever, according to the AltStore team.
What is the new update AltServer 1.5?
1: Enable Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation with sideloaded apps with the new “Enable JIT” menu option
2: Sideload apps (.ipa files) directly to iOS devices without installing AltStore first
3: Install AltStore onto multiple iOS devices using the same Apple ID
4: AltPlugin can now be updated independently from AltServer
Improved AltServer 1.5 Update
1: Added “…” to menu items that require additional user input to match macOS HIG
2: Prefers “individual” paid teams over free teams if there are multiple Apple Developer teams associated with your Apple ID
3: Revokes the previous iOS Development certificate created by AltStore (if one exists) instead of revoking a random one
4: Improved various error messages
Fix AltServer 1.5 Update
1: Fixed the “App Group Does Not Exist” error when sideloading apps
2: Fixed a potential crash when disconnecting an iOS device from your computer
3: Fixed a potential crash when sideloading certain apps
4: Fixed potentially registering an app group twice when sideloading an app containing app extensions
5: Fixed “RSTPlaceholderView.nib couldn’t be saved” error when sideloading apps
6: Fixed duplicate “Revoke Development Certificate” alerts when sideloading apps
AltServer should update automatically for users who have automatic updates enabled. However, if you wish to check if your installation has gotten the update or manually update to version 1.5, go to AltStore -> Check for updates… in the Mac Option Bar or the equivalent menu in the Windows Task Bar.
If you don’t already have AltServer installed, you can get it for free from the AltServer.io website.
One of the reasons why ipsw.me recommends that all current users of iOS 15.5 and macOS Monterey 12.4 update as soon as possible is that the latest version should provide a better user experience with fewer unexpected program crashes once loaded.
Because today’s patch only impacts the handset-based AltStore software, there is presently no update for the computer-based AltServer program.
This upgrade is highly recommended for all AltStore and AltServer users because it significantly improves the user experience. We’re especially intrigued about the ability to use the same Apple ID across different devices, as well as the ability to sideload apps directly into a device that doesn’t have AltStore installed.
AltStore is most typically used to install jailbreak apps like Taurine or unc0ver, but it can also be used to sideload any.IPA file, whether or not it’s meant for jailbreaking.
