iTools Virtual Location is a GPS spoofing location solution that has been used by most people to manipulate their GPS location so that they can access geo-restricted content.
For the longest time, it was used to play Pokémon Go and this feature-rich solution was a reliable solution most of the time.
But in recent times, users of iTools Virtual Location have been reporting that the program is prone to unexpected crashes and failures, a situation that is highly inconvenient for most.
In light of these problems, we’ve decided to examine some of the reported problems and provide solutions for them.
How to Fix Common iTools Virtual Location Not Working Issues
The following are the common problems users encounter when using iTools and how to fix them:
1. iTools Virtual Location Stuck at Developer Mode
This is perhaps the most commonly reported problem. When iTools is stuck on developer mode, you are unable to open the app and you can’t complete the process of faking your GPS.
But this problem will occur most often when you are using an outdated version of iTools. Therefore, when iTools is stuck at developer mode, try updating it to see if the issue will be resolved.
2. iTools Map Not Showing
There are also some users who have reported that iTools fails to load the map on their system, even when their computer has a stable internet connection. This problem can occur when iTools is unable to establish a secure connection with the Google Map API and can happen anytime, even when you’re using iTools for the first time.
The simplest way to fix this problem is to restart iTools and start the GPS spoofing process from the beginning. You can also switch to Mapbox: a lot of users have found this option very helpful.
3. iTools Not Working with iOS 14
Users have also reported that iTools fails to work with iOS 14. This is a very common problem that occurs soon after an iOS 14 update. What happens is, iTools is unable to detect the device, and the process of faking GPS is therefore very difficult.
It is however important to note that iTools is not compatible with iOS 14. So, to use it, you will need to downgrade iOS to an earlier version or try using a different spoofing app.
4. iTools Map Crashes
It is also not uncommon for iTools to get stuck on loading the map, failing to display the whole map. This can make it difficult to change the location. This problem can also be caused by iTools failing to connect to the Google Maps API.
The best way to resolve this issue is to use Mapbox. Just click on the menu and select “Mapbox.” You should also make sure that your internet connection is stable or change to a different network.
Try These Troubleshooting If iTools Virtual Location Still Won't Work
Before attempting the fixes that we will look at in this section, start by checking the following:
- Check if iTools was installed properly. You can also re-install it just to be safe
- The anti-virus on your computer can interfere with the installation. If you are downloading iTools from a trusted website, disable antivirus until the installation is complete.
- Try downloading an earlier version of iTools to see if it presents the same issues. If it doesn’t, contact iTools support for assistance
If you do all the above and you’re still having issues, the following are just some of the fixes to try:
1. System File Checker (SFC Scan)
An SFC scan will help detect any system issues that could be causing problems with iTools. You will need to use Command prompt as an administrator to use it:
Step 1: Type “cmd” in the search bar and run it as administrator.
Step 2: In the “Command Prompt” window that opens, type in “sfc/scannow to scan and fix any problems the system may find.
There are a few things to note when using SFC, including:
Doing this will reset the Windows services to their default settings. If you don’t want that to happen, type in “sfc/verifyonly” instead so that the system will only verify the integrity of the files.
You can also use this feature to scan individual files. Using sfc/scanfile or sfc/verifyfile followed by the full path of the file.
Use the sfc/? Command to see a full list of all commands you can use with sfc. r.
2. Try a Clean Boot
You can also perform a clean boot to check for errors that may be causing iTools to crash. This is a great way to disable all other third-party apps that may be causing the issue. Here are the steps:
Step 1: Type “msconfig” in the search bar and select “System Configuration”.
Step 2: Check “Hide all Microsoft Services” under the “Services” tab.
Step 3: Select all other services except the ones related to iTools and then click “Disable All.” Click “OK”.
Step 4: Open the “Task Manager” and go to the “Startup” tab. Click on all services except iTools and choose “Disable.”
4. Scan for Malware
The presence of malware on your system is another reason why certain apps can crash or malfunction. Scanning for malware will help you determine if the system is infected and you can use any quality third-party antivirus software or Windows Defender. To use Windows Defender, follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the Settings and then click on “Update and Security.” Select “Windows Defender” on the right.
Step 2: Click on “Windows Defender Security Settings”.
Step 3: Then click on “Virus and threat Protection.” From here you can choose a quick scan, custom scan, full scan or office scan. A full scan is always recommended although it may take quite a while to complete.
4. Set Virtual Location with a Better Tool
Of course, the best way to overcome any problem you may be having with iTools is to use a different location spoofing tool. The best one to use is MockGo iPhone GPS spoofer. Unlike iTools, it is safe and unlikely to crash. It also has a very simple user interface, allowing you to change the location on your iOS device in a matter of minutes.
The following are some of the reasons why you should consider MockGo over iTools:
- You can change the GPS location with a single click.
- Simulate a natural movement according to your situation flexibly.
- You don’t need to jailbreak the device to use MockGo.
- It is compatible with all iOS devices and all versions of iOS including iOS 14.
- It easily fakes location on apps like Life360 and Pokémon Go.
Follow these steps to use MockGo to fake the GPS location on your device:
Step 1: Download and install MockGo onto your computer. Launch it after installation and then click on “Start”.
Step 2: Connect the iPhone to the computer using the USB cable. You may need to tap “Trust” to allow the program to detect the device.
Step 3: In the next window, you should see a map. Click on “Teleport Mode” from the top-right corner and enter the preferred location at the search bar. You can also enter coordinates to find the location.
Step 4: Select the location from the search results and then click “Move Here” and set it as your current location.
The GPS location of your device will change immediately. Open the Maps app to confirm the location change.
iTools Virtual Location has long been a great solution for GPS spoofing. But the program has been plagued by issues lately, making it a less desirable option.
