    Default Tired of Blackout Restrictions with NBA League Pass App?


    Tired of Blackout Restrictions with NBA League Pass App? This mod will allow you to fake what zipcode is reported to the app allowing you to bypass any blackout restrictions so you can watch your home team. I didn't make this mod, I'm just passing it along. UNFORTUNATELY THE BLACKOUT RULE STILL APPLIES TO NATIONALLY BROADCAST GAMES (ABC, ESPN, TNT, AND NBA TV)

    1) Make sure you have NBA League Pass installed

    2) Then download the Location Bypass.deb from here

    3) SSh into your device and navigate to private/var/mobile/Library/Downloads

    4) Put the deb in your private/var/mobile/Library/Downloads

    5) Use iFile to navigate to private/var/mobile/Library/Downloads, click on the .deb file and then select installer to install the .deb. If you don't have iFile then you will have to use mobile terminal to navigate to private/var/mobile/Library/Downloads and type dpkg -i XXXXXXXX.deb (replace XXXX with file name)

    6) Once the .deb is installed, respring your device

    7) Use iFile or a File browsing program to locate the directory "Documents" under your NBA League Pass.app (/var/mobile/Applications/XXXXXXX) iFile tells you the name of the folders without guessing so its far easier to use.

    8) You will see a plist file inside the Documents folder, open and edit it: Edit the Zip code to a zip code from a location you want reported to the app. Try using a Las Vegas zipcode (89119) or a place that doesn't have a NBA team and would not blackout any teams. (The number you are changing to a zip code currently says 12345)

    10) Relaunch NBA League Pass and Enjoy watching your home team

    Can you guys supply me with that file in documents because it simply does not show up and its like an epidemic this little issue.

    The bad news is that this isnt even remotely as bad as the insufficient network coverage problem arghhhhhhhhhhhhh..

    An easier way without all the sshing and dpkg installation:

    The app is called FakeLocation and it is made by the same developer who created iLocalis (a kind of lo-jack for the iPhone better than Mobileme Find phone). Currently there is a beta version in the repo http://ilocalis.com/repo and the developer has informed me that release version will be released shortly to the modmyi repo.

    Screenshots of the app:

    Does anyone know how to get this to work in the UK? A friend of mine is having problems, and I have gone through everything with him and he still cannot get it to work. Also the fakelocation does not work for most apps. It does work for NBA and MLB but other apps that use the location service it does not work....

    this seems legit, will try fake your location app instead of installing anything through ssh

    Fake Location works really well. I abandoned the original method to use it and have been very happy

    I wonder if this, or a similar workaround will be available now that NBA LP is on the second gen AppleTV?

    I don't know how TV blackouts work internationally, but in the U.S., a game won't be streamed online if you live in the area where it is being televised. Example, I live in the Philadelphia area, so Sixers/Flyers/Phillies/Eagles etc. games are televised, so the streaming apps are frustrating because if I am not able to watch the game because I am at work or on the road, I won't be able to watch the game because I am in the broadcasting area. These work arounds (if they work) are real life savers...

    It doesn't apply. However there are tweaks in cydia that do this for you.
