Shukofukurou for iOS Community is the open source distribution that is distributed outside of the App Store. It’s meant for advanced users who already have a Apple Developer’s account and want to use Shukofukurou for iOS for free. It’s not meant for normal users as Apple only allow you use sideloaded apps for 7 days before having to reinstall it. For other users, you should use the official version.
Only install the community version from the official sources.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the App Store and Community Version?
The community version is compiled using the OSS target scheme. The precompiled version, which is the open source version is the same exact version if you compiled from source. The precompiled version allows you to use the app without having to manually copy the client key source file, rename it and add the client ids, secrets, etc for each service.
However, the community version will have some features left out. It does not have the Scrobble extension nor it will be able to sync your list updates across multiple services when implemented in the future. Also, there is no support whatsoever. Posting issues regarding the community version will automatically be closed.
Should I use the Community version?
The free community version is meant for advanced users. In other words, you should ideally have your own Apple’s Developer Program membership so you can sideload apps without the 7 day restriction. Since Apple applies a 7 day restriction for free accounts, it’s not recommended for normal users to use this version. However, the paid version that is on the App Store does not have the hassles of this version and you would also support future development of this app and others. Additionally, a message will appear every time you launch the app. You can only remove this if you compile it yourself and remove the message.
Moreover, you won’t be able to download the latest update automatically. You need to download and install the IPA file every time a new release comes out.
How do I install the Community version?
To install the community version, you need to download the latest version of Cydia Impactor. Then, use the program to install the package. This can be done by clicking the Device menu in the app and selecting Install Package. You will need your Apple ID and password (for two factor enabled accounts, you need to generate an app specific password).
How can I verify the release I just download?
The SHA256 value (hashing value), which is used to check the integrity of the file will be provided with each release. In the terminal, type the following.
shasum -a 256 Shukofukurou-IOS-OSS-1.4.ipa
Note: Run in command line
certUtil -hashfile Shukofukurou-IOS-OSS-1.4.ipa SHA256
