How To Get Kodi Media Player App On iPad Or iPhone: YES, No Jailbreak Needed!

iPhone and iPad users don’t need to wait for Todesco or Pangu’s work to make Kodi function in their Apple device. Tech Times will show you how.  ( Kodi )

Tech Times has already showed readers how to keep the jailbreak for their iOS devices longer. We have also wondered when a stable iOS 10.2 jailbreak will be available or if it will ever be available after Apple's consistent updates to combat jailbreaking.

The thing is nobody really has any idea, so for those who are counting on jailbreaks to be able to run their preferred Android applications in their Apple devices - applications like Kodi - hope seems bleak. The good news is that the Kodi media player can still run on iPhones and iPads even without a stable jailbreak and Tech Times will show you how to do just that.

Before we go into detail, Tech Times would like to give a shoutout to David Price of Macworld UK for revealing the information we are about to share, and DanTheMan827 who developed the app that makes running Kodi on iPhones and iPads using Xcode 7 possible.

Reminder!

It is important for readers to note that what we are about to share is only a temporary fix. A free user's certificate has a seven-day trial period before expiration, while those who own paid developer accounts have up to one year. You can just keep on repeating the process from the App Signer step to keep on renewing the certificate and you will not lose any of your Kodi settings as long as you do not uninstall the old app.

Minimum Requirements

• Macbook with Mac OS X 10.9
• lXcode 7
• Sync cable

Instructions

Step 1: Download the Kodi Deb files and the App Signer application.

Step 2: Plug in your iPhone or iPad to your Macbook and open Xcode 7.

Step 3: Create a new iOS application from the Single-View window then type in a unique name and identifier when prompted. Save on your desktop.

  3.1 Xcode will pop up a notification regarding the provisioning profile but just click "Fix Issue."

  3.2 If Xcode asks you to sign in with your Apple ID in order to fix the issue, just click "Add" and select your Apple account ID from a drop-down menu that will show up, then click "Choose." Xcode should stop notifying you about a provisioning issue.

Note: If you have more than one device, you can just plug them in and repeat from Step 3.1.

Step 4: Open App Signer and select the Kodi Deb, your signing certificate and provisioning profile, then click "Start" and type your preferred filename.

Step 5: Go back to Xcode and open the "Windows" menu and select "Devices." From there, all you have to do is click "'+" and select the file that was generated by App Signer, and you're done!

If you need visuals to go with every step, DanTheMan827's got you covered in the download page of the iOS App Signer App linked in Step 1.
