    Since Cydia Impactor doesn't work with the published version, I'm going to write a step-by-step guide for installing the application on non-jailbroken iDevices.
    You need:
    • iTunes
    • Cydia Impactor
    • iPhone 6, iPad Air or better (6S recommended)
    • At least 2GB free
    This method has been tested on the following iOS and devices:
    • iPhone 7 Plus (128GB) (iOS 10.1)
    Also, the application is very unstable, so it's unplayable sometimes.
    1. Download the IPA file on the FreeSO for iOS topic.
    2. Download the Info.plist (http://www.mediafire.com/file/m1f8bdczuhrl3gv/Info.plist) and save it somewhere.
    3. Decompress the FreeSO.ipa file (With WinRaR, for example)
    4. You will find a folder called "Payload", then a FSOiOS.app folder. In the folder FSOiOS.app folder, put the Info.plist file.
    5. Open iTunes and grab the FSOiOS.app folder to iTunes for processing it.
    6. Go to Applications tab in iTunes.
    7. Find FreeSO application, then right click and press on "Show on Windows Explorer" or something like that (I don't have iTunes in English)
    8. Connect your iPhone to your PC and open Cydia Impactor.
    9. Grab the IPA that iTunes generated and you're seeing on your explorer and put in on Cydia Impactor.
    10. Follow the steps that Impactor gives to you.
    11. When the whole process finishes, re-connect your iPhone to your PC.
    12. Go to your device tab and, inside the device tab, go to Applications (for seeing the ones that are inside the device)
    13. On shared folders, click on FreeSO.
    14. Transfer your The Sims Online folder (TSOClient and TSOPatch inside this folder, follow the FreeSO for iOS topic for instructions) simply grabbing it and putting it on the box.
    15. Congrats! You got FreeSO working on your iDevice without jailbreak.
    If you have any questions or problems, feel free to ask.

    It seems to be working now with the newest version of Cydia Impactor.

    Just curious if there has been any progress on this or if there is a current working tutorial? I'd love to be able to play from my iPad!!
