Here’s a simple method to fix Cydia impactor error http-win.cpp:158 while installing iOS 10.2 jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch on a Windows computer.
Several Windows users are reporting that they are getting this weird http-win.cpp:158 when trying to install iOS 10.2 jailbreak on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch using Cydia Impactor on a Windows computer. This Cydia Impactor error 158 causes jailbreak installation process to freeze in the middle. The error is as follows:
“http-win.cpp:158 Peer cetificate cannot be authenticated with given CA certificates SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain”
This particular Cydia Impactor peer certificate cannot be authenticated error is linked to an SSL certificate verification problem on Cydia Impactor when someone tries to use the Impactor tool to sign IPA files for installing iOS 10.2 jailbreak via Windows device. The http-win.cpp:158 error occurs when you try to use a yalu102 jailbreak certificate that has already expired to resign the app using Cydia Impactor in order to reactivate jailbreak.
The Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with given ca certificates cydia impactor problem seems to be on the Windows powered devices only. Mac users aren’t reporting any such issue with Cydia Impactor to install jailbreak. However, thanks to Jay Freeman Saurik, who has released a solution to fix this http-win.cpp:158 error in the form of a new improved Cydia Impactor version for Windows devices. You can use this new tool to sideload IPA files on Windows to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
