LiveContainer: run unsigned IPA without installing


Enthusiastic iOS users continuously seek opportunities to sideload apps onto their devices from non-Apple-approved sources. This pursuit has led to the creation of jailbreak tools, IPA installers, and various exploits such as the method utilized by TrollStore. Amidst these avenues, the emergence of LiveContainer is notable. This tool leverages the JIT installation approach to cleverly bypass signing process for iOS apps.

What is LiveContainer?

LiveContainer project is a tool with the primary objective of codesigning bypass using JIT installation method on iOS 15 – iOS 16. This concept empowers users to execute unsigned iOS app without the obligatory process of installing them onto their devices. The cornerstone of this achievement lies in the utilization of xpn's JIT library loading, which effectively enables activities such as tweak injection, all while eliminating the requirement for app re-signing.

Upon successfully sideloading the LiveContainer IPA onto your iOS device, a realm of possibilities unfolds before you. You'll be empowered to install an unrestricted multitude of applications, all achieved without the necessity of jailbreaking your device. There is not even a requirement to sign the applications before sideloading on your iOS device.

This tool goes a step further by bypassing the 10 apps limitation for free accounts. However, it's important to note that LiveContainer advancement comes with a minor trade-off: the ability to run only a single app at any given time. This is much more like 3 apps limit where you have to disable an app to run another (switching between app in LiveContainer is instant).

Regrettably, LiveContainer doesn't guarantee compatibility with all apps, and the exact roster of unsupported applications remains undisclosed. It's best if you will test it yourself.

Info: In iOS, JIT stands for “Just-In-Time” compilation. It refers to a technique used by software platforms to improve the execution speed of programs. In the context of iOS development, JIT typically pertains to the compilation of code for applications at runtime, rather than during the initial installation or launch. JIT is not compatible with iOS 17.

Additional constraints encompass the fact that entitlements originating from the guest app are not extended to the host app. Nevertheless, this may not be of significant concern, as sideloaded apps typically demand only rudimentary entitlements. Notably, the allocation of app permissions adheres to a global application, influencing all instances.

Compounding these limitations, the absence of sandboxing for guest app containers warrants attention. Consequently, it becomes plausible for one guest app to infiltrate the data of its counterparts. arm64e executable is untested. It is recommended to use arm64 binary.

LiveContainer was released as an open source project with files hosed thought GitHub Repository. The source code is mostly written in Objective-C, and small part in C programming languages. Duy Tran Khanh compiled LiveContainer that can be easily installed on your iPhone.

Download LiveContainer IPA

LiveContainer IPA is available for download from the official GitHub Releases page. However, the IPA can be only sideloaded using SideStore or Bullfrog Assistant. Using this tool with AltStore will not work because it expects the app to be opened before enabling JIT. Below you can find the link for the latest release of LiveContainer IPA and LiveContainer Source Code.

To install LiveContainer IPA using SideStore, follow those steps:

  1. Download SideStore and install the IPA installer on your iPhone.
  2. Download LiveContainer IPA on your iDevice.
  3. Sideload LiveContainer IPA through SideStore.
  4. Open LiveContainer app from Home Screen.
  5. Tap the plus icon in the upper right-hand corner.
  6. Select IPA files to install on your device.
  7. Choose the app you want to open in the next launch.
  8. Tap the play icon, it will jump to SideStore and exit.
  9. In SideStore, hold down LiveContainer and tap Enable JIT.

Info: If you have SideStore build supporting JIT URL scheme, it jumps back to LiveContainer with JIT enabled and the guest app is ready to use without no further actions.
