Remember they did things with iBooks a while back too but that got fixed fast. I would bet there will be a patch for that as well at some point

Yes, this story has been covered elsewhere. The TWCCable blocks JB devices.

You either get the previous version, maybe off your iTunes?
OR live without the app,
OR live without the jailbreak...

It will be interesting to see how things progress... I see you found a fix already!

Can I ask you to change the title to be specific to this app only please. It is the only one affected and the title will scaremonger unnecessarily.

There is a fix, read my previous post.
And why change the title when this could be an impending problem for all apps?

Because you were asked to, Grayson, by an adult Moderator of this forum. Do it or I will.

Got it?

End of discussion.

Go ahead and change it if you want to. I am too lazy to open safari. :D

I've changed the name of this thread to - WARNING!!!! TWCCable App and Jailbreaking

A fix package has now been posted in Cydia via BigBoss and is called "FakeTimeWarner (FTW)" which may be more convenient than manually installing a deb file for some ;)

If you are a user of this app and are jailbroken, make sure you search for this package in Cydia and install it!

Thanks for that, Leigh.

Saved me some homework about downloading and installing .deb files. Now, granted, I need to learn how to do that, still - but just not today.

Well now that it's sorted out, let me ask everyone this: Is the TWC app even worth all the hassle??? I've read mixed reviews about it's usefulness?

Yes, I did point out tot he OP that the subject had been covered. I have posted a link pointing here in your thread and closed it to avoid further fragmentation. Hope that is OK? Thanks.
