What is GBox?
GBox is an on-device IPA signing tool to install jailbreak tools, apps, games, and tweaked apps on your iPhone or iPad without using a PC. With this iOS app, you can import your own signing certificates or use globally available ones to sign and install IPA files. No jailbreak is required.
Basically, this is a Cydia Impactor alternative with support for iOS 10 up to iOS 15 that works directly on your device. Once installed, GBox for iOS will be available from the Home Screen. It allows you to install almost all IPA files including those big ones with over 500 MB.
Import your own IPA files to GBox on iOS from any application or import the built-in sources to quickly access links to popular jailbreak tools like unc0ver, Taurine, Odyssey, and various console emulators such as Delta, RetroArch, Happy Chick, DolphiniOS, PPSSPP, and iNDS.
The list of apps contains also some popular iOS games. All files are available for self-signing. It means that without a working certificate you can't install the IPA packages without a jailbreak.
Users can easily create their own GBox sources with download links to popular IPA files for quick access. The app is packed also with a download manager allowing you to quickly download any IPA packages by providing a URL to the file and a webserver to transfer files between devices.
GBox works on both jailbroken and non-jailbreak devices running iOS 10, iOS 11, iOS 12, iOS 13, iOS 14, and iOS 15. On top of that, it supports Anti-Revoke tweaks allowing you to install apps and games by disabling certificate revokes check on your jailbroken device.
If for some reason you think that this app is not right for you I would suggest instead using ESign app. This IPA signing tool for iOS is a great alternative for GBox and it's packed with some more advanced features such as an option to modify the IPA, inject dylib, remove restrictions, etc.
By default, GBox for iOS installs a globally available enterprise certificate to sign IPA files. This certificate is mostly used by pirated third-party App Stores and therefore it's often revoked by Apple making it impossible to use. Usually, those free certificates work for a few days.
GBox uses a p12 certificate and mobileprovision file to install IPA files on your iPhone or iPad. To be aware of the actual certificate status GBox is packed with a certification management system available through the Settings pane. To access this feature you must install the UDID profile.
From the Cert Management page, you can view all installed certificates and check the actual status of a certificate if it works or is revoked, delete and export certificates, buy working private certificates, and import and use your own certificates to sign and install IPAs.

GBox on iOS can be installed using direct weblinks (when not revoked),or by signing and sideloading the IPA file on your device with a proper tool. In the past, the GBox TestFlight link was available making it much easier to install without a PC but it's not available anymore.
