For Help Visit:


  • Download Xcode from the Mac app store onto you Mac ( (If you have iOS 10 you will need Xcode 8 beta, unfortunately cannot give link here, legal reasons)
  • Connect your computer with your iPhone using your cable
  • Open Xcode
  • Navigate to Xcode -> Preferences -> Accounts
  • Click the + button on the bottom left and sign in with your iTunes username and password
  • Click on the "Personal Team" team and click details
  • Click "Create" next to "iOS Development"
  • Download this project and unzip (
  • Inside the new unzipped folder (default called ppsideloader-master) you will find a blank "app.ipa" file. You will need to replace this with a decrypted ipa of the app you are trying to tweak.
  • Find an IPA online of the app you would like to tweak
  • Once you have downloaded the IPA, rename it so it has the filename "app.ipa"
  • Overwrite the empty "app.ipa" inside the ppsideloader folder with the "app.ipa" file you downloaded earlier.
  • Open "ppsideloader.xcodeproj"
  • Click "ppsideloader" on top left -> Then under targets click "ppsideloader" again
  • Click on the General tab:
  • Change the Bundle Identifier to something unique (i.e
  • Click on the team dropdown and select "Personal Team"
  • If Xcode complains that there is no provisioning profile click "FIX"
  • If you have an App Store version of the app installed on your phone of the app you are trying to tweak you will have to uninstall that version first before the next step!
  • Click the Play button on the top left and the sideloaded app will start building
  • Please note that if this is the first time you are building the app, on your phone go to Settings -> General -> Devices and Trust the new profile

Loading other tweaks:

  • Place a zip file named at the root of the ppsideloader project alongside the app.ipa file. This zip file must be 1 level deep. Its contents will be copied into the app's bundle and any dylibs will be signed

Configuration (modify values in PP_SIDELOADER_OPTIONS):

  • KEEP_ORIGINAL_APP_NAME: Do not add ++ to the installed app name
  • OVERWRITE_ORIGINAL_APP: If you want push notifications keep this true. If you want to install a duplicate app without push notifications set this to false
  • CREATE_IPA_FILES: If you set this to true after every build you will see an IPA with ++ in the products directory inside your project folder.
  • REMOVE_PLUGINS: Remove all app plugins which might be causing build errors.
