AltServer v1.4.9 released with support for macOS Monterey 12.3

Apple provided a new macOS Monterey 12.3 beta build for public testing this week, and as some early adopters quickly discovered, the newly-bundled Mail app broke the AltServer Mail app plug-in.

Fortunately, the AltStore team issued a hot fix for everyone who installed macOS Monterey 12.3 beta in the form of AltServer v1.4.9, which citing a Tweet shared Wednesday, is now available to everyone.

As noted in the relatively brief change log for AltServer v1.4.9, this update merely adds macOS Monterey 12.3 support to the Mail app plug-in so that it works properly when attempting to side-load apps; that’s it.

Of course, users will need to update the Mail app plug-in too. A pop-up like the one show below appears immediately after updating:

AltServer is a critical component of the AltStore platform that runs on your computer in the background so that you can use your Apple ID to side load apps that aren’t available on Apple’s App Store.

AltStore is commonly used to side load jailbreak apps like Taurine and unc0ver, however it can be used for regular apps too.

Since this update is intended only for the Mail app on macOS Monterey 12.3, the same update won’t be available for Windows machines. It’s worth reiterating that macOS Monterey 12.3 is still in beta, but even those running macOS Monterey 12.2 and earlier can install today’s update.

To snag the latest update, simply navigate to Check for Updates… from the AltServer Menu Bar icon on your Mac. The update should be found automatically and the installation should take less than a minute:
