Jailbroken iPhone Users Are Not Able To Do In App Purchases

With OS 3.0 , Apple introduced a new feature for iPhone app developers and that is to allow customers to purchase in app content, such as maps, additional music or new game content.

If you are on a jailbroken iDevice, you will not be able to do any in app purchases, because you altered the way apps are verified by the developers, and you might get a screen like the one in the picture above.

If you got this error, and you want to fix it, follow this steps:

  • Uninstall the App you want to make the in-app purchase in
  • Open Cydia > Packages > uninstall AppSync
  • Reboot your phone.
  • Re-install the App you deleted in step 1 (the App that you want to make in-app purchase)
  • Log out of your iTunes account by going to Settings > Store > Sign out, then sign in again using the same method.
  • You should now be able to make in-app purchases (as long as you don’t have AppSync installed in Cydia)
