How to Fix Super Mario Run Crashing on iPhone and iPad

How to Fix Super Mario Run Crashing on iPhone and iPad

Super Mario Run is now available for download from your App Store. I did what most people probably have done and paid for the game. Before its release, they announced that Super Mario Run would require a constant internet connection in order to work fully. This doesn’t seem like a problem to me.

However, after downloading the game onto my iOS device, it crashes right upon launching. I understand why this is happening. It’s because I have a jailbroken device, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to pirate the game.

If you’re currently experiencing a crashing issue with your Super Mario Run on an iPhone or iPad, this tutorial will show you how to fix it.

How to Bypass Super Mario Run Jailbreak Detection

  1. Launch Cydia and reload sources
  2. Add the following repository:
  3. Install xCon and Resping

After your iOS device boot up, you should be able to open the game without any trouble.

If the above method doesn’t work, there is another tweak that allows you to bypass jailbreak detection in most apps. Note that this isn’t the first time that has happened to jailbroken users.

You can recall the Pokemon Go incident, PayPal also enforces this, and now Super Mario Run.

Fix using tsProtector

  1. Go on Cydia and install tsProtector tweak
  2. Enable the package
  3. Blacklist Super Mario Run app from there

This should be able to let you play Super Mario Run on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.


RunMario is a new jailbreak tweak designed specifically for Super Mario Run. Unlike tsProtector, this tweak will only let you remove jailbreak detection in this game. No other games or applications will be compatible. If you don’t have any similar issues with other apps, then RunMario would be an ideal package.

The tweak is now available for download from the BigBoss repo.

Still have this problem even if you didn’t jailbreak?

Sometimes, this is actually possible. If you didn’t jailbreak your iOS device and Super Mario Run still crashes or show some weird issues, here are a few tips to handle that.

  • Restart your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad
  • Delete the app and re-install it from the App Store
  • Turn on AirPlane Mode for a few mins and turn it off

Let me know if that works for you.
