Anyone else use sky go on iPad or iPhone? It appears the sky have started blocking jailbroken devices? I can't understand why they would do this as its a free app. It's not like it can be victim to piracy.

I don't think they will be able to fix this, love film player doesn't work on jail broken devices and hasn't ever since its been out. If sky doesn't want you to play their content you won't be able to, their a multi billion company with a greedy owner, we can't beat people like that unfortunately.
Stevelamont said:I would say Apple is an even bigger multi billion dollar company and yet the problem arises from their software being modified. I think the question is not "if" it's "when".
Apple won't do anything about it! They don't want us to jailbreak as it is, if anything they'd support it!

Sky go is now working on jailbroken iPads thanks to xcon! My hats off to him. Also purchase alias xcon, its only $2.00 and it allows you to update an app without worrying about it being patched, (even if it is just drop him an email and he will sort it!) I think he deserves it!
I stand corrected I'm pleased to say!

gVes said:Skygo fix
Delete app, reboot, sync earlier version 2.1.5 from iTunes
Open app, get update app info
Close and kill the app
Use sbsettings, more, app folders,
Note the first few digits of the app folder name
Open ifile, var/mobile/applications
Find app folder digits
Edit info.plist version number from 2.1.5
App now works like before
It's a fix until xcon gets updated
