Apple’s Enterprise Distribution Program Was abused To Let The Installation Of A GameBoy Emulator

Apple world, previously we have posted a simple tutorial guide to show you the way to install GBA4iOS, a GBA emulator, on your iOS device without the need of jailbreaking it. Now Apple cracks down on service that abused Enterprise Distribution program to let users install GBA emulator!


Unsurprisingly, Apple has now revoked that certificate for violating the terms of Apple’s enterprise iOS development program, which is actually meant for in-house app distribution.

From MacBuildServer’s blog:

Yesterday someone from Apple called to Serge, our founder and noticed that the enterprise certificate registered on our company was being used to violate Apple’s agreements.

We were waiting for the moment for too long, and it came. It’s a pity, that since now our service can be used by participants of Apple Developers Program only.

MacBuildServer is a “continuous integration” service for iOS developers that allows them to automate building of iOS apps (.ipa files) from the source code contained in a repository. These apps need to be signed so that they can be installed from a channel other than the App Store. The company earlier let anyone build an ipa file from a git repository using MacBuildServer’s own enterprise certificates, but now this won’t work. Developers would now need to provide their own enterprise certificate to sign apps.
