Before we move on to downloading MovieBox, its worth mentioning that, although you don’t need to jailbreak to use MovieBox [ext link] you also can’t get it from the iOS app store.  This is because Apple monitors what goes into their app store and third-party apps like MovieBox rarely meet their requirements. That doesn’t mean it isn’t safe to use but there only way you can download it so to go through an app installer called ACMarket.

How to Download MovieBox :

This method might seem a little complicated to those not used to downloading apps in this way, but it really is quite simple, provided you follow the steps carefully, and it will take no more than a few minutes.  We will be talking about errors with MovieBox as well and there are two that you will most likely experience.

How to Fix MovieBox Errors :

There are two errors that we are going to discuss, one that will mostly be experienced by new users and one that all users will experience. The first is a certificate error and it will show up by MovieBox not working or an Unknown Source error. Fixing it is very simple; you just need to tell Apple that you trust the certificate:

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open Settings > General > Profile and Device Management 
  2. Locate the certificate, World of Enterprise , nd tap it
  3. Tap on Trust, close settings and try MovieBox again, it will now work

The second error is one where MovieBox will crash within days of being installed and this is because Apple revokes the certificate. As we said earlier, they don’t allow it in the store and don’t see the certificate as being a valid one and, although you can reinstall MovieBox, it will only crash again. To stop this, install NessTool [ext link] and your certificates will be protected, leaving you to enjoy MovieBox without interruption.
