When playing a location-based AR game like Pokémon Go, you may find yourself wishing there was a way to catch Pokémon that are not in your area or even to play the game without having to move.
Well, with location spoofing tools you can very easily do both. One of the most popular location spoofing tools for Pokémon Go is iPogo.
In this guide, we will learn more about how to use 3uTools to install iPogo.
3uTools is a one-stop solution for managing all Apple devices. This utility allows you to manage apps, images, music, videos, books, files, documents, and all other files on your iOS device from your computer.
You can also use it to siedeload and install apps such as iPogo that didn't come from the regular app store by using its special files called IPA files.
3uTools IPA signer has some nice features, like remembering your Apple ID, so you don't have to type it in every time you want to add an app.
iPogo is a modded version of Pokémon GO that is specifically developed to help you spoof your location in Pokémon GO.
iPogo has already garnered numerous positive reviews, primarily because it comes with additional features that you may not find on traditional location spoofing tools like iSpoofer.
One of the most popular of these features is the Pokémon Go Plus (Go-Tcha) feature which tricks your device into thinking that your device is connected to a Go Plus.
Here's a list of its most useful features:
To set up iPogo via 3uTools, you must first download 3uTools on your Windows computer. As of now, it is only compatible with Windows, and there is no support for Mac and Linux systems.
Here are the files you will need before getting started:
Note: This process will work better if you use a new Apple ID
Once you have everything you need, follow these simple steps to install iPogo using 3uTools;
Step 1: Open 3uTools on your computer and then click on the "Toolbox Tab."
Step 2: Click on "IPA Signature."
Step 3: Click on "Add File" and then select the iPogo IPA that you downloaded.
Step 4: Click on "Sign in With Apple ID" and enter your Apple ID and password.
Step 5: Make sure that both the Apple ID and iPogo file are selected.
Step 6: Click on "Start Signing" and wait for the process to be completed.
Step 7: Click on "iDevice > Apps > Import & Install IPA".
Step 8: Choose the signed IPA from documents (not the original one you downloaded).
Step 9: Finally, go to Settings > General > Device Management and trust the installer.
Except 3uTools, there are numerous alternative ways to install iPogo. You can choose to download it directly or install it via 3uTools, Matrix Installer, RickPactor or Signulous.
Direct download is the easiest but if the certification is revoked, you may not be able to download iPogo again until iPogo releases a new certificate.
Here's how to download iPogo directly;
Step 1: Open the Safari browser and then go to https://ipogo.app/index.php.
Step 2: The installation process should begin immediately. Just wait for it to be completed.
Step 3: Then tap on "Send me to Profile Management."
Step 4: In the notification that pops up, tap "Allow."
Step 5: Select the correct profile and then click on "Trust."
While setup iPogo using 3uTools can be a good solution to spoof Pokémon Go, it does have a few shortcomings, including the following;
Before using 3uTools or any other sideloading tool, it's essential to weigh the convenience against these potential drawbacks and consider your specific needs and preferences. Additionally, always ensure that you're following legal and ethical practices when sideloading apps onto your iOS device.
The hassle of having to install iPogo on your device is one of the biggest reasons why most users will try to find a better alternative. If you don't want to install iPogo to fake location on Pokémon Go, consider using MockGo iOS GPS spoofer.
It is a desktop tool, meaning that you will not need to install any apps on your iPhone, reducing the risk that Niantic will detect the location change and penalize your account.
The following are the features you can expect with MockGo;
Step 1: Simply download and install MockGo on your computer and then follow these simple steps to use it to fake the GPS location on iPhone.
Step 2: Open MockGo and use USB cables to connect the iOS device to the computer using USB cables. Click "Start" when the program detects the device.
Step 3: A map will show up on the screen, indicating the current location of the device. To change the location, click on the "Teleport" icon and then enter the location you want to use. Click "Search."
Step 4: A new popup will appear with the exact coordinates of the new location that you have selected. Click "Move Here".
Step 5: And the GPS location on your iPhone will change.
Follow these steps to fake movement between multi-spots using MockGo;
Step 1: Choose the multi-stop feature in the upper right corner and choose all the spots that you would like to move through on the map. When a popup appears indicating the distance, click "Move Here".
Step 2: Select the number of times that you would like to move and click "Start" to begin the simulated movement.
Going through all this trouble for a Pokémon Go location spoofing tool simply isn't worth it. The constant installing and reinstalling can lead to your account being detected for 3rd party spoofers, and it's just a lot of hassle to deal with in the long run.
Instead, you should look into professional location spoofing tools like MockGo. Not only does MockGo let you spoof your location anywhere in the world for location-based VR games like Pokemon GO.
This means your spoofing will be safe as long as you abide by the cooldown timers and you can catch all the Pokemon you want. With so much to offer, what more could you need?
