Jailed permasigned app installer for iOS 15.5 - 16.6.1 & iOS 17 Release
TrollStore 2 in a permasigned jailed app that can permanently install any IPA you open in it.
Announcement – Now Supports iOS 15.5 – 16.6.1 and iOS 17.0
TrollStore, developed by Lars Fröder, allows non-jailbroken iOS users to sideload IPA files onto their devices. A key benefit is automatic refreshing and resigning of apps. Previously, TrollStore only supported iOS versions 14.0 to 15.4.1. However, with the release of TrollStore 2, this limitation no longer exists. TrollStore 2 extends compatibility to iOS 15.5 through iOS 16.6.1 and even the upcoming iOS 17.0. Like the original TrollStore, version 2 exploits a vulnerability in Core Trust to enable permanent signing capabilities on iPhones and iPads that meet the compatibility requirements. In summary, TrollStore 2 brings expanded iOS version support, maintaining the same convenient sideloading and resigning features.
TrollStore 2 – Compatibility & Support
Understanding TrollStore V2 compatibility can be confusing. To clarify read below:
iOS 15.5-15.7.6 or iOS 16.0-16.5:
These versions have the exploited CoreTrust bug and installation vectors like MDC or KFD. TrollStore 2 can be easily installed.
iOS 15.7.7-15.8, iOS 16.5.1-16.6.1, or iOS 17.0 (A12+ devices):
The CoreTrust bug is present but installation vectors are unavailable. Stay tuned as new kernel exploits that enable installation are frequently released. Note: KFD works on iOS 16.6.1 Beta 1.
The CoreTrust bug is not present. A12+ devices can use DelayOTA to downgrade to iOS 17.0 which has the bug, then wait for an installation vector.
iOS 17.0.1 or newer:
No CoreTrust bug or installation vector. No options for these iOS versions.
In summary, TrollStore V2 works on iOS 15.6-16.5 (all devices), 16.5.1-16.6.1 (A8-A11 devices), and iOS 17.0 (A12+ devices). The original TrollStore supported iOS 14.0 – 15.4.1.
What is Trollstore 2?
Trollstore 2 is an ios application through which you can bypass the appstore verification to sideload any app without any limitation and use them indefinitely. With Trollstore you are free from re-signing the app every 7 days.
Installation Guide (iOS 15.5 - 16.6.1)
It is not possible to install new persistant “System” apps on /var, whenever the system decides to reload the icon cache, it will revert TrollStore and it’s installed apps back to “User” state which is bad because due to various circumstances, the TrollStore bug only affects “System” apps. When this happens, TrollStore and it’s apps will either disappear or no longer launch (App is unavailable error). This is where the persistence helper comes into play: It replaces a stock system app and that app will still be registered as “System” after the icon cache has been reloaded, therefore the persistence helper still launches and can be used to refresh the TrollStore app registrations so they’re back to system and launch again. There is an option to uninstall the persistence helper in both TrollStore and in the system app it replaced, but if that for whatever reason doesn’t work you can always uninstall the system app and reinstall it from AppStore and it will be back to stock.
TrollStore has an OTA update mechanism, when a new version comes out you can download the TrollStore.tar file from GitHub and open it in TrollStore, it will update everything (including the persistence helper) and respring.
Dude this is amazing. I was already excited about the permasign news for iOS 14, but being able to do it on a modern, jailed iOS 15 phone is insane. Great job
Can confirm that this is working on an unjailbroken iPhone 8, A11 chip running on iOS 15.0. Was able to get an ipa working.Needless to say, this is magic.
This is damn huge !!! Thanks for the always great work for community. And special thanks to the developer for this amazing tool. This is such a life saver.
