Introducing MYbloXX for iOS
A crowdsourced AUTO-UPDATING
"xBlocker" for iOS! • BLOCKS ADS | REVOKES | TRACKERS | MINERS & MORE •
Compatibility: iOS 4 - 14* Official Telegram Support Group

After many months of closed beta testing, MYbloXX for iOS
is now officially available to the general public! You may have seen it mentioned here and there on jailbreak
but official release was delayed due to my Dad's on-going battle with Coronavirus. Apologies for the delay but today is the day!
What makes MYbloXX for iOS better than the alternatives?
• BETTER BATTERY LIFE
• FASTER BROWSING
• INTEGRATED POP-UP/REDIRECT BLOCKER
• NO FILESYSTEM MODIFICATIONS
The problem with alternate ad-blocking tweaks is that they rely on hosts file modifications to block ads... Not only is this static, requiring constant manual additions to the file and pushes of package updates (rarely done) but it also takes a toll on your download/upload speed... The more rules in the hosts file, the longer it takes to render pages. This method also requires additional tweaks (LetMeBlock and mDNSrestart) to allow mDNSresponder’s use of the hosts file. This is also a strain on system daemons which causes a significant amount of battery drain, especially if mDNSresponder goes haywire, which it’s known to do.
That’s where MYbloXX for iOS
Security is a top priority for everybody... MYbloXX for iOS
is no different. This uses absolutely no third-party servers to re-route your traffic, unlike ffapple and other third-party DNS/Ad blocking App Store apps. They claim to not do so but how do we REALLY
know that? MYbloXX for iOS
is different: All traffic is routed DIRECT

is doing and how it works HERE
The use of wildcards means a vast majority of entries within the hosts file can be removed to ensure a fast, efficient ad-blocking method.
MYbloXX for iOS
uses a powerful Apple stock feature that is usually only available to those with "supervised" devices. It also allows for on-the-fly updates to quickly add new ad-servers and works on all versions of iOS, all carriers and ISP’s (IPv4 and IPv6 respectively...
So... Just how effective is MYbloXX for iOS and how does it stack up against the competition? https://preview.redd.it/ypmbe9ksgrz51.jpg?width=4284&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=abc8e884c4fa398964f6f69ba93671d1ade5ee50
It was put to the test against 2 other popular ad-blocking tweaks (BlockYouX
& Mega UHB
) using adblock-tester.com
The numbers speak for themselves! All 3 tests were conducted using the following settings:
Contextual Advertising: ON
- Google AdSense: ON
Analytics Tools: ON
- Google Analytics: ON
- Hotjar: ON
Banner Advertising: ON
- Flash banners: ON
- Empty Block
(if not shown)
- Gif image: OFF
- Static image: OFF
Error monitoring: ON
- Sentry: ON
- Bugsnag: ON
Final scores (in order); MYbloXX for iOS
Mega UHB: 81/100
Gif image and static image tests were turned off because I’ve decided not to attempt to block these... Why? Although possible, it’s highly likely it would have an adverse effect, potentially blocking legitimate GIF’s (now that they’re hugely popular on social media) and small images. This ad technique is pretty antiquated at this point either way and most do not do this anymore. MYbloXX for iOS
aims to block as many ads as possible out of the box using a technique that has not been used in any other ad-blocking tweaks until now. With new ad servers being created on a daily basis, on rare occasions, it’s possible you’ll come across an ad in an app/on a website.
If this happens, please use the MYbloXX app to submit a report or reach out via Telegram: MYXXdev Support Group.
The more that use this feature, the better!

This package will SPOOF
your devices “isSupervised” status allowing easy installation. Upon removal of this package, your device will return to its true unsupervised state. STOCK USERS: MYbloXX for iOS
requires you (legitimately) supervise/manage your device using Apple Configurator 2 (Mac only) prior to installation... THIS REQUIRES RESTORING YOUR DEVICE
in order to configure/supervise so please ensure you BACKUP YOUR DEVICE! HOW TO SUPERVISE WITH APPLE CONFIGURATOR 2 A special thanks to Charlie Todd, Droom0ne, John Coates, LakesideMiners, Usman, yoyo and all beta testers for their contributions!

- Why does my device say "This iDevice is supervised and managed"?
At no point is your device actually TRULY supervised. The message in Settings can cause alarm (and so it should under legitimate circumstances) but MYbloXX for iOS
doesn’t actually supervise (or “manage”) your device. MYbloXX for iOS
uses a hidden stock Apple feature (usually only available to devices that are supervised under Mobile Device Management (MDM)) in order to block ads, revokes, miners etc. Under normal circumstances, this would require a person to manually supervise their device with Apple Configurator 2. This not only requires a Mac but also requires restoring your device.
The beauty of being jailbroken, we can SPOOF this setting, fooling iOS into BELIEVING it’s in a “supervised” state. Obtaining “spoofed supervised” status was simple: Changing one key string (“isSupervised”) in CloudConfigurationDetails.plist from “false” to “true”.
You can try this for yourself in Filza:
After a respring, you’ll see that the “warning” message is now in Settings.
Again, at no point is your device TRULY supervised... This would require YOU physically restoring your device in your possession. MYbloXX simply tricks iOS into thinking it is to allow the installation (this is also why MYbloXX for iOS
is available for stock users as they have the option to legitimately supervise their device to use it).
- Can I remove the supervised message in Settings?
you've installed the MYbloXX for iOS
profile, please install isSupervisedBeGone
from the MYXXdev Repository to remove the message.
You can immediately uninstall the isSupervisedBeGone package after install - This will not make the warning message re-appear. NOTE:
THIS REVERTS SUPERVISION SPOOFING ENTIRELY. If, for whatever reason, you remove the MYbloXX for iOS
profile, you will need to reinstall the MYbloXX for iOS
package to re-spoof and reinstall the profile. I recommend keeping a spoofed status so you can remove/re-install the MYbloXX for iOS profile with ease but this package is available for those that wish to remove it.
- Does this block ads systemwide or just Safari? SYSTEMWIDE! MYbloXX for iOS
blocks ads, revokes, trackers, miners and more in all browsers, games, tweaks and apps that use external/dedicated ad servers!
- Does MYbloXX for iOS work in stock mode? YES! MYbloXX for iOS
xBlocking technology works in both jailbroken AND stock mode!
- How often is MYbloXX for iOS updated? MYbloXX for iOS
is updated by hand by yours truly as reports come in/as I find ad-servers... Updates are typically more than once per day!
- How do I get the updates?
No enduser interaction is required! Your device will automatically call out and receive the latest PAC rules from the MYXXdev GitHub repository. This will only occur when you use something that requires an active internet connection so there's no fear of overnight/standby battery drain. Sit back, relax and enjoy up to the minute protection!
- Will I have to update anything in Cydia?
This package will rarely receive updates... Only if features are added/changed that require a full package update. Everything else is handled by the PAC automatically.
- Why does the MYbloXX app crash on launch/stay on a black screen?
If the MYbloXX app sits at a black screen after launch, it's likely you have OpenURLPrompt (or similar) installed that's blocking the MYbloXX app from redirecting to/opening Safari. This is required in order to install a profile (an Apple set restriction). If the app crashes to the SpringBoard immediately upon launch, you may be using an older version of iOS that isn't officially supported (but does work). The app is basically a shortcut to THIS PAGE.
You can use this link to continue installation and file reports.
- Does this block YouTube ads? NO!
Some apps/services self-host their ads... YouTube being one of those services. This requires patching out the ads in the app directly with a separate tweak. Why? The ads are hosted on the same servers as the content itself - Blocking the ad-server would block the service entirely... Very smart on their behalf but annoying for us! Services that use this ad-hosting technique: - Facebook/Messenger - Instagram - Reddit - Snapchat - Twitch - Twitter - YouTube
I recommend using Haoict's
family of ad-blocking patches/tweaks alongside MYbloXX for iOS for these particular apps. NOTE:
Snapchat - They have recently started moving their ads from snapads.com to the same servers that host stories and Snaps. MYbloXX for iOS will still block the majority of ads until they fully transition but it's possible you'll see a small percentage of them. This requires a patch to remove them completely but it's unlikely that will happen due to their stance on tweaks injecting into their app.
YouTube - There are multiple tweaks available to block YouTube ads. I recommend YouTopia by sinfool... Lightweight and FREE.
- Does this block Cercube/Watusi banner ads? NO! MYbloXX for iOS
blocks ads that are hosted on dedicated/external servers. Removing these types of hard-coded self-promotional banners is considered piracy and will NOT be removed by MYbloXX for iOS
. Some tweaks use this method to encourage purchasing a license... Please support the developers!
- How do I fully remove MYbloXX for iOS?
You can remove this profile/package at any time using your choice of package manager (Cydia etc.) as well as/or navigating to Settings - General - Profiles & Device Management - MYbloXX for iOS
- MYbloXX for iOS blocks app revokes? YES! MYbloXX for iOS
blocks apps revokes meaning even if a certificate is revoked for an app you have downloaded from a third-party store, it will continue to open and remain VERIFIED even in stock mode!
NOTE: This will only work if the CERTIFICATE OWNER revokes the certificate. If this happens, it will continue to open and last until the expiration date of the certificate. HOWEVER, If APPLE remove the developer account attached to the certificate entirely, the application will unverify and crash on launch.
- Can I delete the MYbloXX app?
The MYbloXX app is included in installation for reporting purposes (and initial installation). Please use this to report any ads or issues you have. If you must, you can hide the icon with Lynx, Springtomize, HideYouApps etc.
- Can I uninstall the MYbloXX for iOS package after installing the profile?
You'll lose the integrated pop-up/redirect blocker (TabBlocker) that's included in the package as well as the ease of reporting/profile re-installation. I'd recommend hiding the app icon opposed to complete removal.
- How can I support your work?
Donations are not required but definitely appreciated. It takes a lot of work to ensure MYbloXX for iOS
is efficient and up to date. Although everything updates for you as an enduser automatically, it's still very much so manual research and data entry on my end. If you wish to donate to support continued development for years to come, a PayPal donation page is setup HERE.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. MYbloXX for iOS
relies solely on donations since it cannot be monetized by ads for obvious reasons ;)
- What is MYXX FM?
MYXX FM is another of my projects that I own/operate... I included MYXX FM branding simply for exposure and for those that enjoy music that wish to support another of my hobbies... Again, commercial/ad free so non-monetized but it's something I enjoy doing.
• *TabBlocker update for iOS 14.
• Activator action to easily enable/disable.
Changelogs are available on the Telegram support group as well as the tweaks depiction
Thank you and please enjoy!
