    Hey guys. Just jail broke my iPad 3 yesterday, and have already fell in love with the few tweaks I've already installed. But I have a dilemma, I also use the SKY GO app a lot (daily) and since the jailbreak have got the notification 'this app is not supported on jail broken devices' ... To me this seems kinda dumb as what does it have to do with SKY what kinda software you are running on any kind of device you use to stream the services you PAY to use? Is there any way around this as I'd really like to keep both..

    Try searching for and installing the Cydia tweak xCon. This is a free tweak that, from what I read, allows the iPad to tell Sky Go that it's okay to run. There is also a paid tweak, xCon Alias ($2.00, USD), that makes certain that once an app is patched, any further updates to that app will not affect your iPad.

    I don't use it, so I can't guarantee it. I can tell you that, from what I've read, people have said it works.

    Good luck.

    This worked a dream Marilyn thank you. As the free tweak worked I'm going to go ahead and get the paid app to protect me against any updates on the app
    Once again thank you. I love this forum.

    It's just helps to bypass any detection from any app that will not work properly/or at all because your I device is jail broken.

    I had no problems with my phone either. But for some reason this was all I got from the shy go app as soon as I jailbroke [​IMG]

    Xcon worked a treat though and haven't had any problems stall since installing the tweak. Hope it works for you too.
