If you are an old-hand at jailbreaking, then you will remember a useful tool named Cydia Impactor. It used to be the tool to use if you wanted to remove a jailbreak without affecting the iOS version you were running on your iOS device, thus allowing you to rejailbreak if you wanted to. That tool has now been renamed as Cydia Eraser and the original Cydia Impactor now does something completely different. The developer is Jay Freeman or Saurik as you may know him and he redeveloped Cydia Impactor into a tool used for side-loading unsigned .ipa files onto an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
