Imperihome talks

Any chance you are willing to share

I was bored just installed Imperihome on to a Amazon FireTV stick. It works but is a bit clunky as it needs touch screen inputs, but kinda works with the mouse toggle mouse cursor app installed also.

I love the Imperihome :slight_smile: is great special with plugin. Good job @Cw-kid

Does anyone know where I can download an older iOS version of Imperihome ?

Versions 3.0.3 / 3.0.4 / 3.0.8 appear to be the version numbers before they added the login account system.

We have one iPad device in the house that is my daughters and would like Imperihome on there.

I never use iOS so don’t know much about it or their apps structure or how to side load them.

Pulling my hair out trying to install a new installation of Imperihome on to an iPad.

After a lot of messing around I manged to download an older version of Imperihome from the Apple App Store following this guide here. I now have version 3.0.8 .IPA file which is the last version before Account Login was introduced.

I managed to get the app installed on to the iPad and it is indeed the old version 3.0.8.

However I need to do the in app purchase to purchase the app as I only previously paid for the Android version.

When I select the option in the Imperihome app to Buy Premium it comes up with an error and says something like it cannot find products.

I cannot import my exported json file from my Android tablet either on to the iPad app as it says that is a premium feature.

I cannot load the very latest version of the Imperihome app on to the iPad and try the in app purchase as the first thing you have to do when launching the app is login to the Imperihome account which obviously is not working.

So I don’t think it is possible to do a brand new installation of Imperihome on to an iOS device :cry:

So, I have a partial working solution for Imperihome on a new Android device with some major caveats.

  • I installed ImepriHome Lite 3.0.11
  • I then installed ImperiHome Pro (unlocker) 2.0.1
  • I restored my configuration, and it works!

Here are the caveats:

  • After some time, the tool reverts back to “lite” mode. Sometimes, I can just reinstall the unlocker to get it going again, other times, I have to clear the storage for ImperiHome and start fresh
  • The old versions of ImperiHome cannot get access to your WiFi AP because location permissions are needed, and apparently the tool does not ask for them. The implication is that it cannot easily determine if you are local or remote.

One thing I will say, is that the pre-login version of ImperiHome seems to do everything that the login version does, and it appears to have snappier response

I only have the old version of Imperihome installed on a new Lenovo E7 tablet. I have not had it revert back to only Lite mode.

As its a tablet I don’t take it out of the house so cannot comment on if it would switch between local and remote.

However I have just seen something strange. I went into the Android settings and looked at the Imperihome apps permissions. I could see location listed and turned on in the permissions list.

However when I went out of the settings and back in again to look at the apps permissions again, the location permission had vanished from the list and now cannot be seen.

In the actual Imperihome app Settings - General Preferences under the Configuration section “Local WiFi Network” it does detect my AP when I press the “Get Current Network” button.

@cw-kid: Are you saying you got the old Imperihome working without the unlocker? (v3.0.11) If so, how’d you do that?

As for the WiFi stuff, what version of Android are you using? I’m using Android 10, and I know they changed the way WiFi is accessed. https://support.netanalyzer-an.techet.net/article/124-why-does-the-app-require-location-permission-for-wifi-signal-when-other-apps-dont

No I am using the same version of the “unlocker” as you 2.0.1. I’m saying it hasn’t gone back to the Lite version its remained as Pro since I installed it.

Android is version 8.1.0 Oreo.

So, we can explain the permissions problem based on the Android version in use. Still not sure about the “reversion” problem for me, but perhaps that has to do with Android version as well. I wonder what they are going to do with the product? It would be nice if it can end up as an open-source project!

Hello All

Is there any way to do so that Imperihome detects SSID name?

In Settings under General Preferences then Local WiFi Network this no longer appears to work and detect the SSID name when pressing the button. However it looks like you can manually type in the name of your SSID.

With the developer out of business, does anyone know of a reverse-engineered (aka cracked) version of the 4.0 series app? Or has anyone found a workaround for reauthorizing a new file using a keygen or embedded credentials?

Not that I have seen No.

Regarding using IH with a fresh install on a new Android, I have it working via creating a widget shortcut. If I use the main IH app icon I get the login screen, but if I create a shortcut widget it works. This is with latest version.

Cool that’s a good tip ! How did you manage to figure that one out. I would of never thought to try that.

Hi @olov
Haved the same problem with my new Android 10 phone Samsung
Your trick is good, I installed Imperihome for Android 4.3.17 and create a shortcut widget
Now if I start ImperiHome it asks for login/password but if launching the widget, it works fine.

Congratulation for your idea
