How would you feel about managing your system files even when your iPhone or iPad isn’t jailbroken?
Yes! I’m talking about those who recently updated to iOS 10 and dearly missed the popular iFile tweak they used to utilize. Using this tweak, you can basically add, edit, or even remove any files on your iOS device.
Most people use iFile to:
- Install .deb package (tweaks files)
- Export/import savegames
- Edit their system or app’s file
We actually wrote a few tutorial on this blog that required users to make use of their iFile tweak. You might recall changing the firmware version or take control of your filesystem without iFunbox or a computer.
Now that you’re on iOS 10, it would be a cool idea to use some of these features. The following IPA that we provide below will only include some features, and they’re limited.
Why? Because if a device isn’t jailbroken its owner won’t be given full root access. But hey, at least we get to do something right?
Let’s not waste anymore time and jump right in.
How to Install iFile on iOS 10 devices without Jailbreak
- Download iFile .ipa file from here
- We will need Cydia Impactor to sideload it, so get it from this page
- The post from Step 2 will also show you how to install the app
- When done, go to Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management
- Look for iFile with your Apple ID’s email and tap Trust
Press the home button to go back to your home screen. The iFile app should be launchable with no trusted developer popup issue.
The interface should be similar to the actual iFile tweak on jailbroken device. Again, it can not give you full access to the file system because you don’t have root control.
With that being said, some folders and directories might not even show up at all. That means you don’t have a single entry to them.
Give it a try and let me know what you did with it.
