Apple-introduces-iPhone-4Yesterday, we reported on a loophole that allowed unauthorized applications to be downloaded and installed on an iOS device. Today, that loophole is closed.

ReadWrite once again has the scoop, and all it seemingly involved was a phone call. MacBuildServer, the service that provided certificates to the questionable applications, posted the following on their blog:

“Yesterday someone from Apple called to Serge, our founder and noticed, that enterprise certificate registered on our company was been used violating Apple’s agreements. […] Updates are coming and we will return white magic soon! We’re working on launching a lot of new features for developers to turn MacBuildServer into casual continuous delivery tool to help them launch great apps faster.”

Users who attempt to install the GBA4iOS emulator will encounter an error message stating that the app cannot be installed at this time, seemingly due to the now invalid certificate. Those who have already installed the app can still use it; only after an erase will they lose the app.
