Want to Get Rid of iAds? There’s An App for That

By , Jul 20, 2010

We saw before that it is possible to opt out of targeted iAds. But what if you don’t want to have any iAd at all on your iPhone? You guessed it, there’s an app for that…

Don’t even waste your time looking in the App Store because you won’t find anything there. However, if your iPhone is jailbroken, head over to Cydia and add the following repo: http://apt.macosmovil.com/

When you’re done, search for iAdKiller on Cydia and install the app. Finally, reboot your iPhone or iPod Touch, and voila!

Obviously, iAdKiller is for iOS 4.X and will only work on jailbroken iDevices. Now enjoy your iAd free iPhone!

Thanks Ydro for the tip.

    Hi Sebastian,
    please help me here. When I jailbreak with Redsn0w I keep on getting API error with my installous.
    However, when I jailbreak using jailbreakme.com I don’t get the same problem; my installous works okay.
    However, when using jailbreakme, my Iphone freezes when ever I receive message via Bitesms.
    I can not reboot jailbreakerme compare to when I use Redsnow. Any advice please.

  • Lami

    Hi Peeps;

    Which is better? 3G Unrestrictor or My3G.

    Thanks

  • Lami

    API problem solved. Jailbreakerme not to be use with Bitesms for now.

    Many thanks

  • Robin

    1337inside: THANKYOU! http://oo.apple.com worked just fine for me.

    Disabling iAds is illegal and is terrible for the developers.
