In the author’s opinion, the way to install the apps is just to warmed over the developer certificates. It is very similar to the working principle of the impactor. It only transfers the logic of authorization of the personal free developer account to the mobile phone. All kinds of restrictions of the personal free developer account have not been changed at all, such as the 7-day limit, the maximum number of three applications can be installed on the device at the same time for one developer account, etc. But there is always better than no, one more choice, we have one more way to enjoy.
