App downgrading tool can now block App Store updates [jailbreak]

By , Jan 16, 2016


App Admin, the jailbreak tweak that lets you downgrade to older versions of iOS apps, has just received a significant beta update. The headlining new feature is the ability to block App Store updates, which allows you to easily keep downgraded apps installed on your iOS device. To learn how to gain access to the free beta version of App Admin, check out the rest of this post.

To install the beta version of App Admin on your jailbroken iPhone, simply click here.

Once the latest beta version is installed, you’ll see a new “Block All Updates” option when downloading, updating, or using the Open button in the App Store.


When you choose to block updates for a particular app, you’ll see it listed under a special Blocked section in the upper left-hand corner of the Updates tab.


Blocking updates for an app allows you to keep automatic updates enabled, yet still maintain select downgraded apps. This is a solid update, and it makes App Admin even better than it was before.

        Yes, because the race of the team releasing the tool makes one iota of difference to the tool you inbred, stupid, racist dumbass.

      downgrading with this method let you use apps that are signed with your ID so if you follow the instructions of the first article here in this site, you can get the older versions of a app and synch them mamually to your device through itunes, you don’t need to be jailbroken since the apps are signed for your ID. basically are your apps, just a old version

    Also, since this allows downgrading apps to previous versions that were perhaps built prior to the iPhone 6/s, are there are significant improvements in speed? Such as the launch time and the amount of RAM that app consumed while running in the background.

  • Hey, its possible downgrade apps in AppleTV 4?

    how can i transfer these downgrades to itunes? when i do transfer purchases, nothing happens.

    • leart

      maybe you have on iTunes a newer version of the app you are trying to transfer dude, delete first the app from iTunes and then transfer the purchase … I have heard a rumor that on ios 9 is i possible to get the ipa, but can’t confirm this.

      • TheShade247

        I tried almost everything but no luck, it works fine with my ipad on 8.4.1. But not on iPhone 6s 9.0.2

      • leart

        then maybe what I heard is true, with ios 9 or the 6s is not possible to transfer purchased app on iTunes…
