ReProvision is one of the popular alternatives to Cydia Extender. Developed by Matt Clarke, the tool lets you sign any IPA file or third-party apps that are not available on the official Apple App Store. The coolest part is that this amazing tool allows you to sign an expired application as well. Hence, it comes without a doubt that the tool is extremely popular among iOS users who want to extend the functionality of the iOS operating system running on their iPhone/iPad.

Lately, as a result of a server-side change at Apple, the ReProvision tool has been broken. Anybody who is trying to sign an IPA or a third-party application is receiving the error message stating “You must upgrade to Xcode 7.3 or later to continue developing with your Apple ID.” Continue reading this post to know about the fix.
Fix – ReProvision Broken at Server Side
The developer Matt Clarke has acknowledged the issue via his Twitter Handle and is working tirelessly to resolve the same as quickly as possible. As of now, whenever the users are trying to re-sign an installed application, the error message asking to upgrade to Xcode 7.3 appears in the notification bar. A number of iOS enthusiasts are coming forward with their own theories and methods to fix the issue. However, we recommend waiting for the developer to fix the issue and until then, you can utilize the traditional way to signing the apps every 7 days using Cydia Impactor.
[Update] The developer Matt Clarke has fixed the issue and updated the same to his Repo. Users have downloaded the updated version from the Repo and reported back that it works fine now. Please click here to download the updated ReProvision from the Repo.
[Update] – Is this the end of ReProvision?
Recently, Apple did some more server-side changes targeting the third-party signing utility tools especially ReProvision. While earlier the developer Matt Clarke was able to fix the issue; this time he had to announce on Twitter that ReProvision cannot be fixed now and is officially closing off.
Please note that, going by the announcement, if you have generated the certificate of your application prior to January 28, 2021, it will still work till the certificate expires. On the other hand, some people are saying that ReProvision still works for them as they have tried re-signing the applications post January 28 as well. However, a lot many people are reporting that ReProvision has stopped working. So, it’s just a matter of time we guess, it will stop working for all and you will need the following ReProvision Alternatives.
