Pokémon Go has been on everyone’s lips recently. Despite its limited availability, everyone has gone crazy walking around and catching stunning creatures. The game set a record for most downloads during its first week of release in App Store history.
However, if you have already been playing the game since the day one, you may have noticed that Pokémon Go cannot run on a jailbroken device, which is a little disappointing. If you or your friends happen to have a jailbroken iPhone, do not rush to remove jailbreak and delete Cydia from your iPhone because there is a simple workaround that allows you to play Pokémon Go right on your jailbroken device.
In this tutorial, we will show you to how to play Pokémon Go on a jailbroken iPhone
If you have recently decided to break free of the chains Apple wraps up in, and you want to play the hit game, you need to install a patch via Cydia so that the app won’t detect any signs of jailbreaking on your iPhone. Here is how you do this.
Step 1: Launch Cydia from your iPhone’s home screen. Once you are in, tap on the Sources tab on the bottom to proceed.
Step 2: In the Sources tab, tap on the blue Edit button at the top-right corner of the app, and once it is done, tap on the Add button at the top left.
Step 3: Enter the following URL http://cokepokes.github.io/ in the input field.
Step 4: Once it is done, tap on the Add Source button. Next up, a black screen with white text will appear, and all you have to do is to wait until it is finished, and tap Return to Cydia.
Step 5: Now, you will see the CokePokes repository, as it appears in the Sources tab.
Step 6: Tap on the Change tab on the bottom. Once you are in, tap on the Masterball jailbreak tweak to install it. If Masterball does not show up in the Change tab, you can search for it in Cydia.
Step 7: Once it is done, reboot your device and re-launch the game on your iPhone, and your workaround is going to have immediate effect on the game.
That’s it! From now on, you can join the horde of thousands of people walking around in the real world to catch the creatures right on your jailbroken device.
