What to do next to rollback an iOS app update
Briefly: download the app through the AppStore to iTunes, then turn on the proxy, then download again, edit the request, send the request, get the old version, install.
In detail: after running Charles, you need to install the app certificates on your Mac. This is done through the menu Help → SSL Proxying → Install Charles Root Cetrificate. The certificate must then be set to Always Trust status in Keychain Access. If not installed, there will be errors and the method will not work.
In iTunes, look for the Inoreader app (this will work for any app, but I was only interested in it at the time), launch Charles and click Download in the app installation window:
In the Charles window you get a similar line with the word “buy” in the address, associated with the Apple server:
For information, you can note that the size of the downloaded file is 20.4 MB:
After that you need to turn on SSL Proxying To make intercepting and editing requests:
Т.к., you probably have a fast internet connection and the app has already been downloaded to the app library, you need to remove it from there.
Make sure that SSL Proxying is enabled and go to the AppStore again, pausing the download to give you time to do the following. After clicking on Download, another line appears in the Charles window in the Apple server containing the word “buy”. Expanding this line you need to find buyProduct:
On the right side of the window, click on Contents and at the bottom we select XML Text. Scroll down until you find softwareVersionExternalIdentifiers with a list of incomprehensible numbers.
These numbers are the versions of the application. The smaller the number, the older the version of the app. How do I know which version of an application will be downloaded?? For example, I took at random the value 823964615 from the end of the list:
Now we need to check the version of the application. To do this, we go to “buyProduct” and in the menu select Compose and on the right side of the Text view.
At the very top of the box will be the familiar set of numbers after the appExtVrsId parameter. This set of digits is the current version of the application.
Instead of these numbers we put copied above 823964615 and it should look like this:
and do Execute. The program will give you a window and by selecting the display mode XML Text we can find the bundleShortVersionString parameter at the bottom and see that the value we selected corresponds to version 5.4.4, which in my case is what I need, i.e.к. this version is almost the last version before upgrading to 6.0
There is one step left. You need to download the whole thing. To do this, in our last edited request buyProduct with version 5 received.4.4 in the menu select Breakpoints.
Re-enter the AppStore to download the Inoreader app (if the app has had time to load into your library, and you haven’t stopped it yet, just delete it to be able to download it again).
Once you click on download in iTunes, a Charles window will pop up where you need to click on Edit Request And in the already familiar appExtVrsId parameter, correct the version to 823964615, click Execute, and then click again on Execute.
As a result, you will start loading the application and you will see that the size of the application has changed to a smaller size:
The application icon with the Update icon appears in your iTunes application library. This will mean that you have done everything correctly. You can do a Get Info of the application and it will be written:
Next, from the application see where it is located in the file system and save for the future if you suddenly decide to update the application
Once you’re done, you should do in Charles Disable SSL Proxying by clicking on the p30-buy server.iTunes.Apple.com.
I have to say that I managed to do this procedure only twice. I hope it will be as useful to someone as it was to me.
