  • Skype Update Includes Jailbreak Warning


    Skype has updated to version 1.0.2 on the App Store (iTunes link). The update mostly includes basic bug fixes but also includes a very interesting warning. iClarified reader (and jailbreaker) Francois noticed this new little warning when he launched his updated copy of Skype.

    "This version of Skype is only supported on unmodified iPhone OS 2.2"

    While the warning appears to be threatening he was able to continue to use the app normally. The warning is most likely intended to notice jailbreakers that Skype may have incompatibilities with jailbroken apps that do not use MobileSubstrate (you can read all about it in Cydia) and that Skype does not support issues that may arise because of that.

      WHY is it that sometimes i plug into itunes ,itunes ask me to send them my iphone diagnostics info to apple before i sync. of course i never do. does anyone think that that is one way that apple learns to seek out the j.b. iphones.

      They've been doing that since the early-gen iPods. It's literally just statistical usage on stuff like diagnostics and battery use to help make more efficient firmwares/codes.

      EDIT: Come to think of it, a lot of software does this. I know Vista/7 does it and a couple of other apps I run on my computer give you the option to send diagnostic info.

      It won't even let me sign in. Clicked pass this so called" just a warnin" most of you cry. It just shuts down, before a keypad pops up. It's back to my home screen. I'm on 2.2.1 2gen iPhone on tmobile.

      The first version of Skype I installed on my Beta 5 JB also gave me a one time warning, then it keeps working without the warning coming up again. No probs on mine.

      I had the same issue... and it was not supporting Multitasking.. so, I reinstalled Mobile Substrate (even it was installed earlier, just reinstalled). then everything works fine.

      As far as i know, this is about skype, so i am gonna throw in my 2 cents worth to get back on track. iphone 3 blackrained and iphone 4 jailbreakme and unlocked courtesy of cydia and skype warning comes on both phones, but works like a charm.

      Crazy I just hope they don't add this to other apps.
