What is a Patcher hack?
A "Patcher" means that the hack you are going to install will have settings for you to turn on and off in your iPhone's settings.
What is a Tweak Hack?
A "Tweak" has no settings to configure, simply install it and open the game to see the effects.
I don't have any hack settings displayed on my iPhone's settings?
There can be a few reasons why this happens but the most common one is that you don't have PreferenceLoader installed from Cydia. You may also need to reboot or respring for settings to take effect on your iDevice.
Where can I find my Settings.app?
Settings.app is not a file. When instructions tell you to activate the hack in settings.app, it means you need to open your iPhone's settings and scroll down to find the hack there. If the hack isn't there, read the questions above this one.
How do I uninstall a .deb cheat?
Uninstalling a .deb cheat is the same procedure as when you're uninstalling a Cydia tweak which you may have. Simply go to Cydia -> Installed -> Recent and find the cheat's name then tap on 'Modify' then 'Remove' from thetop-right corner.
How do I uninstall a Binary hack?
To uninstall a Binary cheat, you either need to place back the old Binary file before you modified it or simply reinstall the app so it can re-download it's original un-modified files.
How do I install a Save Game hack?
@Amuyea has made a nice tutorial for iOS 8.2 and below here : http://iosgods.com/t...save-game-hack/
For iOS 8.3/8.4+ here: http://iosgods.com/t...384-and-higher/
Why doesn't the hack work?
There are few reasons why it might be not working.
1. The hack is for old version of the game (example: CoC v1.4 +4; Current CoC Version is 1.5; So the hack won't work)
2. The author only hacked ARMv7 portion of the binary so you might need to thin your binary using this tutorial.
3. The bundle identifier might be wrong? Sometimes for some games bundle identifier change due to your region. One example is The Simpsons Tapped Out. There are 2 versions. So you have to be careful about that. Simply go to/Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/xxxx.plist and go inside that and check the bundle.

iFile finished with Result Code: 0?
If iFile finished with result code 0, that means that the installation was successful. All you have to do now is follow the rest of the instructions provided on the thread where you got the hack from.
iFile finished with Result Code: 256?
This means that the downloaded .deb file is either corrupted or you are missing .deb dependencies. You can try re-downloading the .deb file using another browser and if you're still having issues, contact the author or make a new support thread. If you're missing dependencies, you will need to install them before you can install the .deb file. The missing dependencies will be mentioned above the result code.
iFile finished with Result Code: 512?
This means the installation did not complete successfully. Result Code 512 means that 'dpkg' is being used by another process, usually Cydia, so all you have to do is close Cydia from Multitasking and retry the installation. If you still get the error, close everything except iFile and try again.
Can't find the downloaded .deb/.zip file in iFile/Filza?
If you're downloading using Safari, you can simply click the download link for the deb and you will get an option to open in iFile. The downloaded deb will usually be in these three locations:
If you don't see it there, try a download manager from Cydia or try another File Manager such as Filza.
How can I download from sh.st or adf.ly links?
Once you open the sh.st/adf.ly link, you will have to wait 5 seconds before you can skip the ad located on the top-right and proceed onto the download link. It is advised you visit sh.st/adf.ly links on your Desktop because popups on your iDevice can be annoying.
