Unban your iDevice from Grindr App

Today, I decided to break my silence and finally convinced myself to share everyone how I got right back on Grindr Xtra despite being banned.  First of all, Grindr doesn’t mess around for shit.  They won’t hesitate to ban you for just as simple as posting the work “Pussy,” in reference to a cat, or calling someone a douche bag anywhere in your profile.  I don’t blame Grindr and as a matter of fact I fully respect their terms of service agreement.  They have a pretty solid strategy to keep their app free from nasty and weird people.  Well unfortunately, people like me who doesn’t seem to know when to stop running their mouth exists.  This article is nothing but for educational purposes only.  I warn you not to use anything from this article literally or otherwise implement any information gathered here in real life.  You know what I’m saying?  Anyways, the app relies on the iPhone’s UDID to login the user.  That is why even if after restore, Grindr logs you in with your old profile and knows who you are.  (It’s actually kind of scary that the app caches users’ photos with UDIDs as photo titles.) This is the recipe I used to unban me:

Jailbroken iPhone – Google is your friend. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+jailbreak+my+iphone

I uninstalled Grindr from my iPhone 4

I went to Cydia and added a new source “repo.i4iphones.info”

Then I installed UDIDFaker using the Search option

Exited Cydia and Opened UDIDFaker from the springboard

ScreenShots:

I pressed on Random UDID

Then I installed Grindr Xtra (free Grindr app works too)

Viola! I’m back on Grindr will a brand new account!

I’m sure Grindr will then change the way they handle logins after reading this article.

Finally, please don’t try to be cute and use anything in this article literally.  Cheating is not cute.

Like this if you find it interesting.

 

 

UPDATE: If you can’t find UDIDFAKER using the above repo, try to use http://cydia.xsellize.com/ instead.

If you search my blog, you will find a screenshot. Grindr is pretty forward in letting you know that you've been banned. If you're getting an error, try connecting using 3G, and if you're on 3G and getting an error - try connecting using WIFI.

How does.one know if they have been banned? I have been trying to log in and it keeps saying there was an error trying to log in, try again later.

I got banned for writing "My penis is bigger than my ego ^.^" exactly like that. Wrote to them and they said they removed it 7 times and then banned me.. it was never removed. Its a bit over the top how they're administrating this application right now. Shame its on blackberry too, no way of changing my ID.

Sorry dude, I'm gonna try and see if I could borrow my friend's iPhone 4 (GSM) to test this out. I seriously think Apple patched this app already with 4.3.2.

My phone fucked up before could save my shsh blobs so not possible, some dude said he has it working with 4.3.2 so idk

Looks like UDIDFaker doesn't work on iOS 4.3. We just have to wait for an update but in the meantime you can always downgrade your firmware back to 4.2.1 as long as you saved your SHSH blobs.

I DID follow your instructions, STILL does NOT work, I'm using iOS 4.3

Tried UDIDfaker from three different sources, two don't show but basic apps on the phone (none from the app store) the other shows all them but doesn't do shit when you change the udid
