I always have problems finding a good tutorial for my customers whenever I send them the adhoc app for testing, so I write this post to have a basic place for me and everybody else to send to their beta tester/customer without touching to iTunes with the crazy syncing process. This can be good for JailBreak iPhone as well but this is another story.

    Hi Khang,
    What you are missing is how the installation process on the customer’s device would be? Maybe I am misunderstanding something?

    Uhm, what iPhone Configuration Utility will do is to install the .jpa file into the users’ device without the needs for syncing

    It is rare to find a specialist in whom you can have some trust. In the world at present, nobody definitely cares about showing others exactly how in this issue. How fortuitous I am to have found such a wonderful web page as this. It truly is people like you that make a true difference nowadays through the thoughts they reveal.

      I think you need to check if your provisioning contains the device uuid, and if you build the app with the correct certificate

    How do I aquire the .app file to import into the utility? There is a free app I have on one device, can the .app file be exported to the computer to be imported into the utility somehow?

    Help. I bought this professional edition yesterday and when bluetooth attempts to pick it up it finds it but says this DEVICE DOESNT HAVE NESS SERVICES. I have a newer 4S with 5.1.1. using Sprint. Im not super technical but followed all of the directions.

    About iPhone Configuration Utility 3.5 for Mac OS X and I cannot get it to sync.

    Does anybody know where to download the apps? Seems like all roads lead to iTunes and the Apple Store — which gives you a crap file that can’t be used for deployment to multiple devices.

    I HATE APPLE!!!!!

    Hi, is there anyway to configure the apps to be installed into folders so the apps are organised? Rather than just installing them onto the desktop??

    Downloaded the iPhone Configuration Utility. It showed on my Start screen in Windows 8 but when I click on it, it does not open. I have tried unintsalling and reinstalling and repair. Nada. I can’t get the utility to open.
