You all might be familiar with the Kodi (Media Center). In this tutorial blog post, I will be sharing with you all, how to get Kodi on your iPhone or iPad without finding any need of Jail-breaking. As Jail-breaking does have its own consequences.

Apple some time ago, introduced the consumers with the ability to sideload apps onto iOS devices through the Xcode. This might not be the best experiences for an iOS user, however, it does certainly provide the basis for the iPhone/iPad users to not to jail-break in order to install excellent apps one like Kodi as well. In case this doesn’t, there is an alternative: a developer managed to make installation of the Kodi on a stock iOS device an even simpler task.

A tool that has been around for a while “iOS App Signer” utility, and is involved in the successful installation of Kodi. Kodi over the time has gained a massive fan following as the multi-platform media center. Let’s get started as I walk you through the procedure.


This is a step by step guide, that will be mentioned below. Following it will help you in getting the Kodi app on your iPhone, iPad or any other Apple product.

Step 1 – XCode:

First of all, you need to have XCode on your Mac. Launch Xcode, from the home screen, tap “Create a new Xcode project”. You will be displayed by Xcode Interface (make sure Application is highlighted under the iOS tab on the left of your screen). Select Single View Application from the interface screen. Now click on the Next.

In the product name and Organization name fields, type in a name for the new app. It will also ask of you to provide an Organization Identifier.
Example : com.rp.(app name).
Once all is set, click the Next.


Step 3 – Location:

The next thing that you got to do is provide or give the application the desired location where you want to save the application on your Mac.

Step 4 – Fix Issue:

Xcode may now pop a window complaining to you about the provisioning profile. No need to give your attentions to the complain. Just hit the Fix Issue button and continue the process.

Step 5 – Sign in:

In order to fix the issue, you will need to sign in with your account. If you want to create your account, in Step 4 when the dialog prompts, click Add and provide your Apple ID and password to sign in.
Xcode will use the Apple ID and developer account to fix the issue that has been occurring before.

Step 6 – iOS App Signer:

Now I want you to go to the iOS app Signer utility, and click on the Browse button. And now select the Kodi’s deb file that you downloaded.


Step 7 – Signing Certificate:

As the deb file has been selected. Now I would want you to select the Signing Certificate and the Provisioning Profile from their relevant lists that are provided the users with.

Step 8 – Start:

Once the Provision Profile and Signing Certificate are selected, you can easily without any second thoughts hit the start button on your iOS App Signer utility.

Step 9 – Xcode:

Select a name and the destination for the output file. Now you can safely leave everything for iOS App Signer to swivel its magic wand to package together the Kodi IPA.

Visit the Xcode app, and tap the Window menu, and then Devices.  Select the connected device from the Devices and then hit “+” button.

Locate the IPA file and then select it (which is earlier worked upon by the iOS App Signer).

XCode will now be dedicating some time in order to install or sideload the Kodi IPA to the device that you had connected to your Mac. Everything will progress properly if everything is found legit by the app.

Once it’s done, you can now have the experience to Kodi on your iPhone or iPad.



So this was the procedure for you to get your iPhone or iPad the hit Kodi multi-platform media center without having any jail-breaking involved in the process. Hope you had it all sorted out and Kodi has been functioning excellently as expected on your iPhone and iPad.
