How many times did you see the message “app is no longer available” when installing apps from third party App Stores on iOS. Blacklist based on MacDirtyCow exploit will remove revoked apps from system blacklist allowing them to runnonetheless.

What is Blacklist?

Blacklist is an innovative tool that uses the MacDirtyCow exploit to bypass blacklist restrictions and revoked apps on iOS 15 to iOS 16.1.2. This allows you to run sideloaded or banned apps from third party App Stores on your iPhone or iPad without fear of revocation.

After installing the Blacklist IPA onto your compatible device, you can easily access the app from your Home Screen. The application boasts a user-friendly interface that makes it simple to repair blacklisted apps. Note that this tool is not compatible with iOS 15.7.2 and iOS 16.2 or later.

Blacklist app provides a solution for unlocking personal and enterprise-signed apps on iOS 15 to iOS 16. These apps are frequently obtained from third-party app stores such as Panda Helper or iOSGods. However, when the certificate is revoked, these apps become inaccessible. Blacklist app resolves this issue by allowing you to continue using these apps without interruption.

Users have reported that the Blacklist app is effective not only for unlocking enterprise-signed apps revoked by Apple, but also for those sideloaded using a personal certificate through AltStore. In addition to Blacklist, you can also utilize the WDBRemoveThreeAppLimit to bypass the three-app limit when sideloading IPA files using a free Apple Developer account.

For those seeking to prevent app revocations, blocking access to “” and “” can stop iOS from downloading revocation files to your device. By doing so, your device will continue to believe that the app is not revoked.
