Solving the “installer.cpp:71 error”

The first step to solving the application already installed as incompatible team error is to understand the cause of the error in the first place. Basically, most of the ‘incompatible team’ errors are brought about by installing an app which is from a different source or Apple ID as the original.

This is most apparent with game and apps tweaks that users install without deleting the original. Re-signing the apps with everything similar should eliminate the error in this case.

However, should the process above not solve it for you, then you’ll need to remove the existing version of the app you’re attempting an install of, then install the IPA. This is especially common with users attempting a re-jailbreak with Yalu after the 7-day certificate.
