Jailbreaks have been quite poor in the last year and, with iOS 11 download now released, the entire jailbreak community is waiting to see if this year will be any better. New apps like Emus4U has come up to provide free apps. What jailbreaks we do have are limited to those with the iPhone 5S through to the iPhone 6S Plus and that means there is a large proportion of the community without the means to install Cydia. And that means no more premium store content for free.

Luckily, we have found a solution that will tide us over until the iOS 11 jailbreak is released and it is called HipStore. At one time, to get paid content without paying for it, we would have needed Cydia and an app called vShare but now, with HipStore, everything has changed. HipStore provides access to some of the tweaks in Cydia and to paid content without the need to jailbreak. It has been updated to iOS 11 and we are going to tell you how to get it.

Method 3: Android Only

Fix HipStore Not Working Issue :
HipStore is a stable app installer but, because Apple revokes invalid certificates on a regular basis, it will crash within days of being installed. You can reinstall HipStore quite easily, but you will also need to reinstall all your apps and tweaks and, unless you take steps to stop it, it will crash again. The only way to stop this from happening is to install a VPN tool that will block the certificates, hiding them from Apple and stopping them from revoking them. That tool is called Anti Revoke and you can find out more details about it and how to download it by following the link below :

Popular HipStore Apps :
HipStore is one of the most comprehensive of all the app installers, with these being two very popular apps:

HipStore is never going to fully replace Cydia because it simply isn’t as in-depth and doesn’t provide the same level of functionality. However, it is an interim solution and most people will get something out of it.
