I’m trying to use Appium to automate a 3rd party ios app (e.g. YouTube). My understanding is that this can not be done unless the app is signed with a development cert. And in order to resign/repackage an already signed app I will need to
- Decrypt the installed app using a tool such as https://github.com/KJCracks/Clutch
- Resign and repack the app with my development cert
From what I have gathered these two steps are very involved and need a jailbroken ios device.
Has anyone actually gone through these and is able to successfully automate a pre-installed ios app using Appium?
Is there any other way to achieve it?
