2018 MMC on iOS

Post#1 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 8:00 pm

Based on the response to the poll, I suspect we will be fine using ad-hoc distribution.

Caution: this may be shut down or stop working at any time by Apple, Ceton (I doubt it), or (most likely) a future iOS update that renders the app incompatible in some way

Requirements: An iPhone or iPad running iOS 8.0 or later.

I would like to restrict registration to one iPhone and one iPad per registered user as of Jan 18, 2018 until Monday.

What you need to do:
  • Find your device UDID. If you don't know how to find your UDID, use this website: https://betafamily.com/superudid
    If you leave the browser window open on your computer, it will automatically update with your UDID information after you complete the process on your device, so you can easily copy and paste it from your computer. It will install a "profile" on your device to read the UDID, but it will automatically remove itself afterwards.
    If you're not comfortable with this method, you can use any other method to access your UDID, such as reading it from iTunes.
  • PM me the UDID and whether it's an iPhone or iPad. Please do not post it in this topic!
  • Visit https://setonsylvan.github.io/ after I PM you that your device UDID has been registered. Tapping the Install button if your UDID has not been registered will do nothing.

FYI: This is a manual process to update the IPA with UDIDs so it may take a few hours before I'm able to add your UDID. If your device UDID is not included in the IPA, the link will not install the app for you!

FAQs:
  • The app will expire some time in 2019 (date tbd once I set everything up). The app will not open with the message "my MC" Is No Longer Available. At that time, if the app is still functional, everyone will have to re-download MMC from a new link. It should install over the existing installation and leave your settings and data intact.
  • As long as your device UDID has already been registered, you can uninstall and re-install MMC from the link provided without having to re-register.
  • The UDID does not change when you update to new versions of iOS, or even when you do an Erase all Content and Settings. However, If you get rid of your device and get a new device, you will need to re-register the new UDID.
  • This is entirely free, and you don't need to include any proof of purchase.

Hopefully this will be a smooth process, I'm excited that we're able to get this app back on iOS for now.
Many thanks to Jacoats, DanITman, and bryankennedy2 who did the bulk of the work!

The first round of people have been PM'd. The app should be valid until Jan 19, 2019!

I'll need to commandeer my wife's iPhone X and do this but it won't be for a bit.

I just switched to a new iPhone and realized this problem with MMC not installing anymore. Are you still able to add users to the app you posted on github? Thanks!

This is incredible. I’ve been bummed with no great alternative since it stopped installing on new software versions. I will submit my udid soon.
