How To Play Super Mario Run On Jailbroken Devices & How to save battery

Nintendo’s highly-anticipated Super Mario Run launched on the App Store Thursday afternoon as a free download with a non-compulsory $9.99 In-App Purchase to unlock all of the gameplay modes and levels. It’s Nintendo’s first real game on the mobile device and it’s true to its form. It’s a side-scrolling automatic runner and you play the game using just one hand (and one finger). The game is really easy to play but the devil isn’t in the gameplay – it’s in the strategy. So read on to find out how to make the best out of this game and get hours of fun out of it.

ByPass Jailbreak Detection

Anyone who has a jailbroken device is in for a surprise when they try to play, as it appears Nintendo built jailbreak detection into the game. This is particularly common among a number of hit games from the App Store, including Pokémon GO, and causes the app in question to do nothing but crash whenever you attempt to launch it, but there is a way around it if you still want to play Super Mario Run on your jailbroken iOS devices, and we’ll show you how.

How to play Super Mario Run on a jailbroken iPhone

To play the Super Mario Run game you just downloaded on your jailbroken device, you’ll need to install a tweak from Cydia that can hide your jailbroken status from the game when it does its preliminary check.

A lot of the older jailbreak tweaks that used to do this for other apps won’t work for this, but one that does is called tsProtector 8+ (iOS 9 & 9) by iOS developer typ0s2d10, and it’s available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository.

It’s a paid tweak, but it comes with a limited free trial that lasts forever, and that’s all you’re really going to need. So you won’t have to pay anything to make this work.

Getting the patch

To get it, follow these steps:

1) Launch Cydia from your Home screen.

2) Search for “tsprotector” in the Search field

3) Tap on the tsProtector 8+ (iOS 9 & 8) option.

4) Tap on the blue Install button at the top right of the tweak and follow the prompts in Cydia until the installation is complete.

Applying the patch

After you install the tweak from Cydia, you can follow the following steps to bypass Super Mario Run’s jailbreak protection on your device:

1) Launch the Settings app from your Home screen.

2) Open the tsProtector preferences pane.

3) Open the Black List Apps cell:

4) Turn on the MARIO RUN toggle switch.

Now that you’ve applied this patch to the Super Mario Run again, you should be able to launch it on your jailbroken device and the game should load as expected without any hesitation.

Save battery

In order to prevent unwanted battery drains, we have some tips for you about minimizing energy consumption while playing Super Mario Run on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Within the game’s options menu, there are settings for rendering and graphics that you can dial down in order to make Super Mario Run easier on the battery.

How to save battery when playing Super Mario Run

1) Launch Super Mario Run on your device.

2) Tap to begin.

3) Tap the Menu button in the lower left corner.

4) Tap Settings.

5) Tap Options.

6) Set both Rendering Settings and Graphics Settings to Low.

7) Tap “X” to return to the options menu, then tap “X” again to return to the game.

Changing graphics and rendering settings to Low puts the game in power-saving mode.

“The display smoothness and detail on the screen will be reduced, but the amount of energy used will also be reduced,” reads the in-game prompt.

Unlike some other iOS apps and games, Super Mario Run unfortunately does not automatically decrease graphics and rendering quality on your behalf when you activate low-power mode in Settings → Battery → Low Power Mode.

If you’re running the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3, then you’re using a semi-untethered jailbreak. This means when you reboot, you will need to run the Pangu app from your Home screen to reinitialize your jailbreak.

If you don’t do this, your jailbreak won’t function when your device reboots and this also means the patch won’t reinitialize. So if you attempt to play the game after a reboot without running the Pangu tool, you’ll be right back at square one with a game that crashes at startup.

So with that in mind, if you’re jailbroken and you’re using this patch to play, try your best to remember to boot semi-untethered every time to reboot before you try playing Super Mario Run.
