Up to now, people have been using iBackupBot to apply their Save Games and while that worked, it had its ups and downs. Today, we bring you a new method, a method which doesn't involve restoring from your iTunes backups. Without further ado, let's begin the tutorial!
- A Computer Running Windows/Mac/Linux.
- iTunes Installed on your Computer.
- Cydia Impactor.
- iFunBox/iTools or any other file managers.
- A Non-Jailbroken iDevice on iOS 8.3+, 9.0+, 10.0+.
- USB Cable.
- 7-Zip or any other archive managers.
Note: This tutorial is only suggested to use on Non-Jailbroken devices. If you're Jailbroken, simply install Apple File Conduit "2" or Filza from Cydia and you'll be able to apply the save game.
Note 2: This tutorial only works with save games that only require the "Documents" folder of the app. It will not work with "Library" folder.
How to install Save Game Cheats on your Non-Jailbroken iDevice:
Step 1: Make sure you have met all requirements. Install iTunes, iFunBox, 7-Zip & download then extract Cydia Impactor. I'm using iFunBox 4.0 Preview for this tutorial.
Step 2: Find and download a Cracked IPA of your game. In my case, I'll be downloading Subway Surfers and I'll be using this Save Game hack. I believe you can also download from iTunes as long as you enter with the same Apple ID on Cydia Impactor but it's untested.
Step 3: After the download has finished, you will need to go to where you saved the .IPA files. Once you're there, open up the IPA you just downloaded using 7-Zip then open the Payload -> xyxyxy.app -> find Info.plist and open it in a text editor.
Step 4: You will now need to edit the Info.plist and add these two lines right under the MinimumOSVersion key. See the screenshot below for guidance.
Step 5: Once you have added that, save the modified Info.plist and make sure to update it inside 7-Zip archive when prompted. If you cannot then extract the Info.plist to your desktop, edit it then put it back into the archive.
Step 6: Close 7-Zip and open/run Cydia Impactor on your computer and connect your iOS Device via USB cable then wait until your device name shows up on Cydia Impactor.
Step 7: Drag & Drop the IPA you just modified into Cydia Impactor's UI and enter your Apple ID & Password when asked. You will need to uninstall the app if you have it already installed on your device.
Step 8: Once Cydia Impactor finishes the installation open the app, play it for a bit so it generates the Documents folder we'll need. Now open iFunBox -> My Device -> Apps -> Click the little folder icon.
Step 9: Now this is when you apply the hack. Drag & Drop the save game files onto the iFunBox window replacing the original files. Open the app & enjoy!
Note 3: Cydia Impactor installed apps will expire after 7 days. Meaning you will need to redo this tutorial every 7 days.
This method may or may not work for everyone. Each user may encounter a different problem. Help each other out in the comments section below.
