Cydia Impactor Errors and Solution

If you fail to solve encountered cydia impactor error while sideloading, you can try cydia impactor alternatives.

1. Cydia Impactor runtime error

cydia impactor error

Error:  

  • runtime error!
  • This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

Solution:

  • Install Visual C++ Redistribution latest version.

2. installation.cpp:42 error

Solution 1:

  • It may be caused by dragging IPA zip file directly to Cydia Impactor. Try to extract at the desktop and then drag it to the software.
  • Try your luck with VPN for making an attempt with a different region.
  • Utilize another tool for signing IPA file and sideload that signed IPA using Impactor. One of the community members used iOS App Signer to resign yalu.ipa and installed with the latest Impactor, it worked!

Solution 2:

Majority of community members are facing the same issue while using Cydia Impactor. Trying out available different solutions are not leading users to walk away without cydia impactor 42 error. But it can be 100% resolved with the following method where impactor won’t be our handy tool.

  1. Go to jailbreaks.fun from your Safari browser.
  2. Type unc0ver -new beta in the search bar.
  3. Upon finding the same, click on Get and let it install the app.

14. provision.cpp:168 error

Error:

  • provision.cpp:168
  • You already have a current iOS Development certificate or a pending certificate request

Solution:

  1. Utilize App-Specific Password: This is the same method that we used to eliminate cydia impactor エラー 173. However, go through our video tutorial.
  2. Revoke Certificates: Navigate to Cydia Impactor > Xcode > Revoke Certificates. Enter your Apple ID and password and hit enter. You will get “revoked 1 certificate” message on the screen. Now, try reinstalling your IPA file.
  3. Create a New Apple ID: There might be the possibility of getting this error because of your Apple ID. Create a brand new Apple ID and try sideloading your IPA package.
  4. Install Package Manually: If you are still unable to install the desired app, go to Device > Install Package and pick up your downloaded IPA file. This should remove the cydia impactor 168 error.
  5. Computer Diversification:  At last, give another computer a chance as some existing installed software may be acting as a barrier for this impactor error.

15. provision.cpp:173 error

provision.cpp173 error

Error:

  • provision.cpp; line: 173; what:
    Please sign in with an app-specific password

Solution:

  • As the error depicts, you need enter an app-specific password while sideloading IPA files instead of your Apple ID password. Go to http://appleid.apple.com/, log in using your Apple ID credentials and generate an app-specific password. Use it when you drag IPA on cydia impactor.
  • Alternatively, you can just create a new Apple ID and give it a shot. This should eliminate cydia impactor 173 error.
  • If it still appears, try disabling two-factor authentification and make an attempt using your existing Apple ID password.

16. http-win, cpp; line 182

Error:

  • file:http-win, cpp; line 182; what;SSL connect error
    gnutls_handshake() failed: Error in the pull function.

Solution:

  • Check if you have a double certificate. Turn it off and give it a go. It is worth a shot for cydia impactor 182 error.

17. provision.cpp:698 error

Error:

  • provision.cpp.698

Solution:

  • It appears when Cydia Impactor doesn’t detect iOS device properly. Remove USB cable and reboot iPhone once. Reinstall iTunes and then follow the entire procedure.

  • error:desktop.cpp:314

Solution:

  •  The simplest solution is to install iTunes that you probably forgot to install earlier.

19. zip.cpp:311 error

Error:

  • .zip.cpp:311
  • .zip.cpp:420

      • Match the current date+time of your phone and computer. Go with revoking app id and eliminate certificates. Make sure you have downloaded the complete app.

        If it still appears, you may alter computer OS. AppSigner is another thing you can have your hands on. Still throwing the same error? Ohh man! Your app must have an inbuilt issue. Wait for its next update.

    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 appleid.apple.com’ 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?

    • 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.)

      Cheers!

  8. Hello Cydia Impactor
    I have a problem and it is that I do not see an apparent error, I simply closed the Cydia Impact application and it does not install, neither does an app appear on my iphone.
    It’s very strange because sometimes I could install the app and now I can not.

    I use cydia in windows 10 64 bits
    Iphone 6s with iOS 12.2, without jailbreak

    Thank you

    • It’s actually strange. It should have shown some kind of error. I hope you are using the app-specific password method. Go with putting your phone in airplane mode and try with latest cydia impactor.

      Web-based IPA sideloader like AppSigner would be the last thing you may wanna try!

  9. Hi,I have that problem,help me plz:
    File : installation.cpp;line:42;what:
    Failed to verify code signature of
    /private/var/installd/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installd.staging/temp.Igza8P/extracred/Payload/Kardashian.app:0xe8008016(The executable was signed with invalid entitlements.)
    I want to download a hacking game ,but I can’t,please help

    • A lot of people are facing the same error. It is occurring because of revoking certificates by iOS OS. Create an entirely new Apple ID or utilize jailbreaks.fun to sign the app. Another third party platform you can try is iOS App Signer or iResign.

      In short, you need to sign the app via whatever apps/platforms there exist and sideload this signed app via impactor.

  10. Hello, Perform the steps that recommended me but these tests did not work with two IDs using the alternate password, the problem remains the same as the app starts to install but at a given moment stops and closes cydia impactor (the only app I can install is Electra 11.4)
    I hope you can help me, and if it is not possible, thank you very much anyway. Your technical support is very good.

  11. Hello Cydia Team

    I would like to share with you my solution to solve the problem “Cydia is closed and there is no installation application in 12.2” to solve this problem. now create a new random password in the appley page copy it. Now I opened cydia impactor the latest version, look for the ipa I put the id and password before the copy and when I installed I did not see when the application was installed, switch to another window as google chrome (it is strange this step but it worked for me so) and already at the time of reopening the application there was a green bar next to the impact of Cydia, I guess the rest of steps you will know
    Greetings julian

    • It is popping up because of being 32-bit app and iOS 11 doesn’t support 32-bit apps. Anyway, try the following trick:

      1. Go to Cydia Impactor > Xcode > Delete App ID.
      2. Sideload your IPA via generated app-specific password.

      It is still doesn’t work, give iOS 10 a chance.

  12. please please help
    my problem is this

    • Hey Meedoo,

      I’ve got your back. There may be multiple reasons behind cydia impactor 42 error. A majority of community members are facing the exact same error without getting it resolved. But if you’re okay with eliminating Cydia Impactor for solving this error, you are gonna get an accurate solution.

      I’ve updated this article with your error and its solutions. Please give the stated solutions a push and thank me later. 😉

  13. Hi I have an error 79 that says application already installed as an incompatible team after fixing the 173. If you could help that would be great

    • Hi Genna,

      This is due to an app(probably ++ patch) you’re trying to install has not been downloaded properly or it’s not working. Either way, download the app again from a trusted source at first. Remove/Uninstall the app which is causing this error. You may not see the installed app’s icon to remove it. In this case, just reboot your device once, remove it and reinstall the downloaded IPA again.

  14. Ok Saurikk thank you very much for your solution about error 42 where the The executable was signed with invalid entitlements. That’s great and am sure many people appreciate it but for me i don’t want to jailbreak my IOS device but i still want to utilize Cydia Impactor to side load 3rd party application but without having the error occurring every time i attempt to use it. If there please do mention it with a reply or your thoughts about when the resolve for this issue will take place.
    Thank you so much for hard work and efforts Saurikk with helping everybody here with whatever issue they are having and I wish you all the best.

  18. Hi,

    i’m stuck on this, any solution for this issue? trying to check, but there is no such issue

    please help

    file: installer.cpp; line 79; what:

    • There is apparently no such error till the date. Anyway, please try with an app-specific password on another computer.

  19. hola
    quisiera saber como corregir este error
    archivo: provision.cpp; línea: 81; qué:

    ios / downloadTeamProvisioningProfile = 18446744073709551615

    Ocurrió un error inesperado. Inténtalo de nuevo. Si el problema persiste, comuníquese con el Soporte del Programa para Desarrolladores de Apple.

    • Hola DAN,
      Un número significativo de personas reportaron este problema. Parece que Apple está lanzando este error que llevará tiempo resolverlo. Mientras tanto, ¿puedes probar esta solución [2]?

      Por favor, hágame saber el resultado para que las personas puedan tener una solución adecuada. Gracias

    • Cydia Impactor is not causing this issue, I think. Many users have reported the same error recently. You can try another app signer. Please make an attempt with this solution[2].

    • Download latest cydia impactor and Navigate to Xcode >> Revoke Certificates. Revoke the certificate using your Apple ID and password and try again. This is the ultimate solution for cydia impactor 81 error. If it is still not moving a needle, give this solution[2] a try.

  20. hello … my problem is when i open Cydia impactor it`s dosnt lunch or opend
    i tried on other pc it`s work but mind dose not

    i have itunes and my windows is 10 it`s was workiing before but now it`s not ,,,,

    maybe coz i have itunes from microsoft store ? i`m not sure i will try to get it from other places

  21. I open ipa file with winrar, edit Info.plist and save it.
    This method use to work but this time it’s not.

    I got this,

    “File: plist.hpp;line:413; what_assert(plist!=NULL)”

    How to solve it?

    • Try sideloading IPA extension directly. Yes, it is possible that mod you’re trying to install is no longer working.

  22. Hello Saurikk
    Thanks for all you do 🙂

    Issue is:
    I got the following error while GenerationApplicationMap step is going:
    “file: ./plist.hpp; line: 214; what:
    PLIST_NONE not PLIST_STRING

    CFBundleIdentifier
    at.runtastic.runtastic.pro

    [Status]”

    The App icon is present on the screen. I need to verify profile things before the first run, and then I try to launch the app. Result: it crashed after 2-3secs on the loading screen

    How it could be fixed? :shrug:

    Thanks

    • I managed to know that many users are facing the same. This seems quite new. Anyway, have you tried other cydia impactor alternatives? They are worth a shot, especially super impactor.

      If it still doesn’t work, a user managed to get rid of this exact same error with the help of VirtualBox. Try that out too!
