Customer Question
autistic daughters iphone in order...
I am having a difficult time downloading cydia on my autistic daughters iphone in order that I can monitor her whereabouts and with whom she is communicating with. Apple seems to be up to date on all jailbreak apps and I am not able to circumvent their defenses. Without sending me around the proverbial bush is there anyone who can help me.

the site you sent me to is corrupt and only allows me to download ads
Technician: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

The site isn't corrupt -- You are clicking on the ads and not the link.

I've gone all the way to the developer stage and when I sign in with my apple id I can't load because they say I have to sing up as a developer
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have impactor downloaded and can't go any farther
Technician: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately, I am not able to assist you with jailbreaking the phone.

I can provide you with the steps but you will need to perform them.
