AltServer Patcher

AltServerPatcher is a utility that patches AltServer to install any IPA from a web URL. This is an effective replacement of Cydia Impactor for Windows and MacOS.


This method requires Windows 10-64bit in order to work.

  1. Make sure iTunes and iCloud are both installed. You will need to have both versions downloaded directly from an internet browser, not through the Microsoft Store. If you have installed iTunes/iCloud from the Microsoft Store, you will need to uninstall that version, and re-install through an internet browser.

  2. iTunes 64bit:


  3. After you have installed iTunes and iCloud, ensure you are logged into both of them, using the same Apple ID that you are using on your Apple device. Once you have done this, you can close iTunes and iCloud.

  25. If all steps have been followed correctly, you'll notice a notification will appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen that says "Installing Altstore to (Apple device name)". To clear any confusion, it isn't installing AltStore - it is installing whats on the IPA link.
