I just opened Skype and a got a pop up stating that skype does not support the modified ios. Skype works without issues. My question is, how does the app know I have jailbroken my ipad 2?

Had I not jailbroken, would any permissions be less restrictive?

I found the Application directory where skype is. These are the permissions:

drwxr-xr-x 2 mobile mobile 102 Nov 25 17:09 Documents/
drwxr-xr-x 7 mobile mobile 340 Feb 7 07:12 Library/
drwxr-xr-x 29 mobile mobile 24072 Jan 3 18:32 Skype.app/
-rw-r--r-- 1 mobile mobile 27214 Jan 3 18:32 iTunesArtwork
-rw-r--r-- 1 mobile mobile 1718 Jan 3 18:32 iTunesMetadata.plist
drwxr-xr-x 2 mobile mobile 68 Jan 3 18:32 tmp/

Within the Skype.app directory, these are the file and directory permissions:
