Is there a tweak or hack to spoof system date for time-limited apps?

Apology in advance if this is not the correct subforum for this question. Don't know which one I should use...

 

I have both a 32-bit device jailbroken with Phoenix and a 64-bi device jailbroken with Unc0ver.

 

I am looking for a cydia substrate compatible tweak or hack that would allow me to spoof the system date / time (the device' clock) for an app that checks this date / time? The app expires and ceases to work after a specific date but only checks this date locally (not online).

 

An analogy for this request is a tweak that existed long ago which spoofs UDID checked by some apps called UDIDFaker. I am looking now for a tweak that spoofs system date / time instead.

 

Help?

and what is wrong with setting your clock back while using the app?

user_hidden,

 

That is the workaround I have been using until now. It is cumbersome to use at the least because I have to do the switch manually. Also, doing so affects the entire system so that I cannot have other apps open that also check the date and would not work properly with the date rollback. As well, with a tweak, I can set different date spoofing for different apps to be used at the same time.

 

I have tried to search thoroughly online, including numerous Reddit threads, to see if someone has made such a tweak before. Can't find any. That's why I am asking to see, perhaps because I am just not searching for the right terms on what I wanted from this mod.

 

Any suggestion?
