    I'm not in the US, so am unable to test this, but I heard their jailbreak check is pretty pathetic. They simply look for the existence of the Cydia app, so if you change it's name to, for example "NoCydia", using iFile, the app will work...

    No promises, but if it's true, then that's a simple temporary fix...

    OK. Thought it sounded like a bit of a long shot.

    There is now a new update for the dtv app. And when I installed it, I got locked out again, I used the Cydia patch and it worked. But how do I know that the dtv app is the newest or did the patch just over rite it to the older app?

    Thanks for all the good info.
