Fix Super Mario Run App Crashing By Bypassing Jailbreak Detection, Here’s How

Super Mario Run app crashing for you? You can fix it by bypassing jailbreak detection on jailbroken devices. Here’s how.

You would have to have been hiding in some sort of bunker to have missed the fact that Nintendo today released Super Mario Run for iOS, perhaps taking the mantle from Pokemon GO as the most recognizable Nintendo franchise available for the platform. The game has had a very long run up to launch, and now that it is available, everyone wants to try it out to see if all of that hype was worth it. Unfortunately, some people can’t, however, and those people happen to be running jailbroken devices.


Just as is the case with Pokemon GO, Nintendo has implemented technology that detects jailbroken devices before preventing the game from launching. The upshot, as you might imagine, is that the biggest release of the month simply does not work on jailbroken iPhones.

Of course, these being jailbroken devices, there was always going to be a way around Nintendo’s anti-jailbreak schemes, and that’s exactly the case here. If you’re using a jailbroken iPhone or iPad and want to be able to play Super Mario Run, then you’re going to want to pay attention.

To bypass Nintendo’s jailbreak detection, search for and install “tsProtector 8+ (iOS 9 & 9)” from Cydia. Once installed, navigate to Settings > tsProtector > Black List Apps, enable the toggle for Mario Run and you’re good to go. Or run, we suppose. The package can be found under the pre-added BigBoss repo, so no new repositories require addition here.


From here on out, all you should need to do is launch the game like everyone else and it should work without issue. There’s obviously no guarantee that Apple or Nintendo won’t wise up and put the kibosh on all of this, but until that happens, we suggest you get playing. From what we’re hearing, the chances are you will tire of the game before the jailbreak detection systems get updated.
