    The “Network Extensions” feature is only available to users enrolled in Apple Developer Program. Please visit to enroll.

    I have this problem, any idea?

    • Hello B. Sosef,

      Here’s the solution:
      1. Use revoke certificate and try cydia impactor again.
      2. If nothing changes, create an new apple id and use it when cydia impactor asks.

  2. Hey, I am getting ‘provision.cpp; line: 173; what: Please sign in with an app-specific password. You can create one at’ when trying to re-sign an IPA with the “Install Package…” option. I have been using Cydia impactor for a while now, but it only started happening recently. I would be happy to create a new app-specific password for it if need be, but it’s not even popping up asking me to give it a password in the first place. I have tried redownloading and reinstalling both Cydia Impactor and iTunes, so I really don’t know what to do.

    • Instead of creating a new app-specific password, make an attempt with an entirely new Apple ID. If it still appears, disable two-factor authentification and give it a whirl.

      • The problem with that is, it’s never asking for an Apple ID either. So I can’t use a different Apple ID, And since I tried completely reinstalling it, it shouldn’t remember my existing ID either…

  3. Hello, I keep getting this error can you help?

  4. Failed to mind matching arch for 32-bit Mach-O input file/private/var/installs/library/caches/ 16OTBV/extracted/payload/

    • You are probably installing jailbreak IPA on your device. First, check if it supports your device. Make sure you change your flare according to your device. It is failing because the device you’re using may not be a 32bit one.

  5. Hi – I first used the v9.50 impactor but kept getting the 173 error. I’ve used the two-factor authentication password and this time it spitted out an error 79 (not listed above), saying that it’s installed as incompatible team. So I followed the instructions to remove the newer impactor version an downloaded v9.45 instead. This time it’s error 62 but the warning is the same which says “application already installed as incompatible team. What can i do now?

    • Hey Bailey,

      What is the app you are trying to install? Uninstall the current version of the app and try again. You can try disabling 2FA and use your Apple ID and password while sideloading via both v0.9.51 and v0.9.45.

  6. I have error 42 but it doesn’t say the minimum OS version. Instead it says failed to verify application with a valid certificate or something similar. Is there a fix for this

    • There may be a problem with the certificate causing such action. Navigate to Menu >> Xcode >> Revoke Certificates. Enter your Apple ID and password and revoke the certificate.

  7. Hi Saurikk
    I am trying to install whatsapp++ ipa file. I’ve tried apple id and password but if I do, i get the error that the password is incorrect or invalid. So i should uninstall v0.9.45 and reinstall which version? Where can I download impactor v0.9.51? Thanks.

    • Yeah, I have listed that too. Go through this article again or just redownload your IPA file(give a shot with another IPA provider, if it appears.)
