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
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.
