Mojo Installer is an app store, albeit an unofficial one, offering a similar experience to the stock Apple AppStore but with a difference; everything is “FREE” and most of the apps and games are 3rd-party and unofficial.
Update: Mojo Installer is not working anymore. We recommend downloading the AppCake app. Use the link below.
That’s Not All …
You also don’t need to jailbreak and, in Mojo Installer you will find several categories making it easier to find what you want :
- Unofficial apps
- Tweaks for iOS
- iOS apps and games
- Cydia apps

Still Not Working? Then get an Alternative.
There are several good Mojo Installer alternatives released afterward like the Emus4U app, and several of them are very good compared to Mojo Installer.
Fix Profile Installation Failed :
This error is being reported quite a bit, and the most common reason for this is the Apple servers are overloaded with traffic. Leave things be for a while and then try again but if you get the same error again, the next thing to do is clear your device cache and browser history. You do that like this:
- Place your device into airplane mode
- Open Settings > Safari > Clear History & Website Data
- Tap the option to Clear History & Data
- Take your device out of airplane mode and then leave it for a couple of minutes; try downloading the app again, and you should be successful

It isn’t the same as Cydia, but Mojo does offer a lot of choices and is a great Cydia-alternative.
Difference between Mojo and Cydia:
Mojo and Cydia are not the same although they do offer similar content. Here are the main differences between them:
- iOS Compatibility – many Cydia tweaks are no longer compatible with the current iOS versions, but the ones that you find in Cydia are. They have nowhere near the functionality that Cydia tweaks do and there aren’t so many either, but they do offer something to use in the interim
- User Interface –many iOS users are familiar with the Cydia interface but Mojo has a much easier interface use, and the apps themselves are also easier. You need no knowledge of jailbreaking, nor do you need any technical know-how to use Mojo whereas Cydia is a little more comprehensive for new users.
- Features –Cydia offers a lot of options including the use of non-stock apps. Mojo only allows you to use 3rd-party apps, limiting what you can do.
- Price – Cydia and Mojo are free; the only cost is in the tweaks themselves. Some are free; others come with a price tag, usually a small one.
- Warranty –Apple has made it clear that, should you take a jailbroken device to an Apple store, they will void your warranty. However, you can delete Cydia easily. Mojo doesn’t bring that problem with it because it is safe to use; security is not compromised in any way, and you are, technically, not downloading anything that you shouldn’t so your warranty cannot be voided. If you are concerned though, Mojo is simple to delete.
Mojo Installer is a simple app installer to use, offering a heap of modifications to stock iOS apps. It’s a great interim solution while we wait for Cydia to be updated so try it and follow us on Facebook and get all the latest news and updates.
