Before you install the hacked iteration of Pokemon Go

Make sure that you have a Windows PC or a Mac; your iOS device is running iOS 9 or iOS 10; and you have the latest version of iTunes installed. There is an on-device method to install this hacked iteration of Pokemon Go without the need of a computer, but it makes your device vulnerable to hacking.

How to download and install the hacked Pokemon Go

First, you need to uninstall the current Pokemon Go on your device. It will help prevent conflicts between the currently installed and the hacked version of the game.


Visit PokemonGoHack.me on your computer, and scroll down to Downloads and Disclaimers. Now download the Cydia Impactor (Mac or Windows version) and the Pokemon Go 1.11.4++ hack. Cydia Impactor is used to install the IPA.


Install the Cydia Impactor on your computer.


Plug in your iOS device to your computer via a standard USB cable. Now open up iTunes and ensure that the iTunes recognizes your device. If it’s the first time you are connecting your iOS device to the computer, iTunes may ask you to trust the connection. Tap Trust on your device and then click Continue on your Mac or PC.


Open up Cydia Impactor. It should recognize your iOS device. Now drag the hacked version of Pokemon Go that you downloaded from PokemonGoHacks.me inside of the Cydia Impactor interface. It will ask you for an Apple username and login to self-sign the application. It will take a while.


Allow the Impactor to download and install the app on your device. Before you launch the hacked Pokemon Go on your iOS device, you’ll get an Untrusted Developer prompt that gives the Apple ID you used to sign the app inside of Cydia Impactor.


Go to Settings > General > Device Management and tap the Apple ID you used to sign the app. Next, tap on Trust and then Trust again. Now you can go back by pressing the home button.


Launch the Pokemon Go app, input your birthday, click Submit, and then sign in. It will take you inside the hacked version of the game.

How to go anywhere without leaving your home

You’ll see a little joystick in the lower right corner and an M on the top left corner. You can’t use the joystick until you tap on the M and go to Settings and toggle on Fake Location. That’s how you are going to walk around without physically moving.
