These days, if we want an app that isn’t in the iOS app store, we need to turn to tools like Cydia Impactor to sideload them onto our devices. With jailbreaks in such short supply now, this is happening more and more and even the recent jailbreaks must be installed in the same way. This all brings its own problems, with some apps crashing and most having to be reinstalled every 7 days or so. The reason for this is because Apple revokes the certificates and they don’t just do it on these apps , anyone who uses a modified ++app, like Spotify++, Pokémon Go++ and Snapchat++ will also likely have come across the same issues because Apple has revoked the developer or enterprise certificate.

You will be pleased to learn that there is a way around it and it’s called Nesstool. This is a new tool that blocks the verification of these apps by Apple, thus allowing you to use them uninterrupted, without the need to keep reinstalling. For more information about Nesstool, check out the linked post below and then we’ll talk about how to download Nesstool on your device today.
How to Download Nesstool :
Downloading it is simple but, like the apps you are trying to protect, it isn’t available in the iOS app store. All you are going to need for this is your iPhone or iPad, Safari browser, and a good internet connection.
Method 1 : Safari Browser [ Easy Method ]
- Open Safari on your iPhone or iPad
- Go to the address bar and type in nesstool.org
- When the mobile page has opened, look for the UP arrow and tap on it , iPad users look at the top right and iPhone users at the bottom center of your screen
- A new page opens with more options, choose Add to Home Screen
- On the next page, you will need to provide your icon with a name so type in Nesstool . Tap on Add
- Close Safari and the NessTool icon will be on your home screen

Method 2: Configuration Profile [ Advanced Method ]
Please follow the steps carefully otherwise we can’t guarantee success:
- Open Safari on your iOS device and open this [ link ]
- When the page loads, tap the link to Install Profile , failing to do this will result in NessTool not being installed
- When your Settings app opens, tap on Install Profile and then type your passcode in
- Safari browser opens, tap on Install NessTool and then tap Install on the confirmation window
- Settings opens once more, tap on Install > Next > Install
- When the installation process finishes you should see the NessTool icon on your home screen
If the icon is missing, you will need to do these steps again as the install has failed
Method 3: Android Only
The Android platform has long been seen as the most open and relaxed, with users being able to install all manner of third-party apps and games. They have never been able to jailbreak and that has meant, until now, not being able to download the paid apps for free and modified apps and tweaks but, with many of the third-party app installers now supporting Android, they can. However, regardless of the fact that they are using a different platform, Android users are still susceptible to the apps and tweaks they use crashing because the certificates have been revoked.
NessTool fully supports the Android platform, providing full protection against the certificate revocation, by installing the VPN on their devices. This stops Apple from seeing the certificates, which they consider to be unofficial, so they can’t revoke them. This leaves users able to enjoy these apps and tweaks without constant interruption and having to keep on reinstalling them. It is worth mentioning that, as with the iOS device, NessTool will only work on the apps, games, and tweaks that are on the device at the time it is installed.

NessTool Alternative : Anti Revoke
While NessTool works well it is only compatible with Tutu App and apps downloaded through it. What if you use one of the many other app installers though? There is an alternative tool that works the same, by using a VPN configuration on your device, providing protection to the app certificates. This stops Apple revoking them and the tool is called Anti Revoke [ext link]. Check out the link to find out more about it and get a download guide.
Nesstool is very similar to Anti Revoke in that it will only work on the apps you already have on your device. Any that you install after Nesstool will not be protected.
Is Nesstool a welcome addition to the tools we have at our disposal? It will certainly aid anyone who is fed up with having to reinstall their apps every 7 days so try it, and follow us on Facebook for more details and updates.
