What is TrollStore?

TrollStore is an app developed by Riley Testut that takes advantage of an iOS vulnerability called “CoreTrust bypass” to allow sideloading of unsigned IPA app files.

Here are some key things to know about TrollStore:

  • It lets you install unsigned IPA app files on any iPhone or iPad running iOS 14 through 17 without needing to jailbreak. This includes ++ tweaked apps, emulators, and more.
  • It relies on the CoreTrust bypass discovered by developer Linus Henze to work around Apple’s code signing restrictions.
  • Apps installed via TrollStore do not get revoked after 7 days like with free development certificates. They remain permanently signed.
  • TrollStore does not require a computer. You can install it directly from your iPhone or iPad.
  • It works on both jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices.
  • There’s an integrated OTA update mechanism so you can easily update TrollStore when new versions are released.

In short, TrollStore gives you many of the benefits of a jailbreak without needing to jailbreak your device. It provides an easy way to install apps Apple would never allow on the App Store.

TrollStore 2 IPA Installer

TrollStore has been updated to version 2, bringing support for iOS 15 through the latest iOS 17, along with many new features:

  • Support for iOS 15.5 – iOS 17.0: Thanks to new iOS vulnerabilities, TrollStore 2 extends support beyond iOS 15.4.1 to also work on iOS 15.5 through 17.0.
  • Install apps from URL: You can now enter a URL to directly install an IPA hosted online.
  • Temporarily register apps as “User”: This will disable an app but allow you to access its data and settings. Useful for troubleshooting.
  • Detailed app info: TrollStore 2 shows bundle ID, version, file size, and security details before installing an app.
  • Faster app speeds: Apps can now enable Just-in-Time (JIT) compilation for better performance.
  • Easier installation: The “Install TrollStore” option was added to simplify setting up the app itself on your device.
  • Uninstall apps from Home Screen: Apps installed via TrollStore can be deleted right from your Home Screen.
  • AirDrop .tipa files: You can now AirDrop .tipa files (renamed .ipa files) to your device and TrollStore will automatically install them.

With TrollStore 2, sideloading and permanently signing unsigned apps on iOS is easier and supports more devices than ever before.

TrollStore 2 for iOS 16 – iOS 17

TrollStore 2 brings support for iOS 16 through the current iOS 17 beta releases.
