So Good + Xcon was working great - as of this morning, does not work... Any suggestions, or do I have to go back to being locked down?
01-30-2012, 01:34 PM #222
Didn't work for me ... first time I launched it after the JB, it bombed out and cleared itself.
The xCon developer isn't working on it anymore, so don't hold your breath for updates.

I would've never have gotten an iDevice if it wasn't for work. Oh well, jailbreaking was fun for a week. I guess all those Cydia apps I paid for can be forgotten...

Any tips/suggestions I'm open to here. I'd like to move back to an Android device at some point, but won't be able to until the company supports Android...
Sorry, really taking the thread OT here. We should probably continue this via PM - if you wish, please feel free to PM me. Sorry again for the OT folks.

I'm not sure why none of the "dream team" members or other iOS devs haven't come up with some sort of sandbox or virtual machine solution. You'd click on an icon and it would launch an "non jailbroken springboard" where you could have it's own settings, app store and everything, along with its own apps. It would all be contained (a whole filesystem) in a compressed virtual disk file, but every app inside this VM would just see only stock iphone stuff. I guess the only way out would be to reboot the ipad/iphone which sucks but if you put some sort of app switcher assholes like DirecTV and Good for Enterprise for example would just detect for the app switching. I'm not sure how else you could sandbox a clean unmodified iOS within an open jailbroken iOS. Think of this also... when a new iOS version comes out you could always test it in your sandboxed VM.
I spoke to upper level CS at DirecTV and they say that they made a deal with APPLE for JB detection, which I find hard to believe. BUT think for one second, WHAT IF Apple decides to put JB detection in its very own core apps over the next few versions of IOS? We could be really screwed unless we find a better solution. All of these band-aids with xCon is a good effort, but I just don't see it being the LONG TERM solution. An app is fixed with xCon, then the developer gets word of it installs xCon for themselves on a test iDevice and just updates their app to work around xCon again. Its never going to end unless you can do a fool all solution. Maybe not a whole VM or Sandbox approach, but some sort of really LOW LEVEL memory driver that intercepts the calls to detect JB?
I dunno, but I'll take Dreamboard and HoneyPad Pro on my ipad over DirecTV. For now I'll just use Waltz Remote - Control your DVR to remote control my DVR. You guys stuck with Good for Enterprise... does your work have Outlook Web Access maybe you can use to access email? While not as convenient you would have to use the Outlook webmail solution through Safari.

Doesn't surprise me, they are paranoid as all get out.. Probably comes from being burned in the HU card days, so I can't blame them. Well yeah I can, it's my device so I'll root it if I want to :-)
I could care less about DirecTV, but I'll be in Japan for a few weeks and Skype is kind of the kicker for me. So again, it boils down to the same question: do I really want to be able to sit on the can and play NES or do I want to be able to use my iPad for everything I need to use it for?
Of course I could always go the same route I was thinking before - ditch it for a more root friendly device al la Android to have my cake and eat it too. I'll miss garage band, but hey - I'll take it for a less restrictive app store and more free applications than iTunes has.

The bottom line is you guys wanna do it on your iPhone or iPad which u know is cooler than android WHEN JAILBROKEN so stop announcing that you're going to android theres not 1 person reading this thread thats threatened by those comments. Wrong place.
I dont think this guy is working on it anymore he wouldve said something although i havent checked his twitter. Have you guys tried renaming Cydia? Most of these apps are just detecting that, rename it to zzz and see what happens.

Just renaming cydia may of worked for the first version of these apps that include JB detection, but now the app dev's are getting smarter. They check memory offsets, checksums and permissions at various (and random) places on the root filesystem (a stock iOS device wouldn't have these permissions).
I was checking out the ASUS Transformer Prime but it's priced a little high. I think I will wait and see what the iPad 3 is going to be like and depending if thats a hit or a miss for me sell my JB ipad2 and use those funds towards either the iPad3 or the Transformer Prime. That honeycomb tablet is just really expensive considering the iPad 2 has the edge on graphics performance which is key for gaming. I'd really rather wait and see if Ice Cream Sandwich is ported to a droid tablet. I love ICS on my wife's Galaxy Nexus.

So for better or worse I have to use Good. Either that, or I don't get reimbursed by the company... which was kinda the whole point (for me) to get an iPhone.
Oh well. Looks like I'll just flip back and forth as I need it. Painful, but I don't see what choice I have.

Regarding Directv... The truth if all you need is to check the guide and be able to set the DVR remotely to rec a movie from time to time then install the iphone version on your ipad. It is not like having a monster TV screen at home we would watch it on my iPad.
And yet, it pisses me to know that they disable the app altogether on JB devices.

can you try to patch commbank kaching no matter what i do it wont work thanks
02-03-2012, 12:06 PM #238
2 things to get Directv working:
1. grab http://asws.dtvce.com/ASWSHeadend/ws...gator/1/ipad/2, edit and save to local server.
change the verMin and verCurrent to 1.3.7
use a url rewrite mod to change to local server.
2. Then again, I suppose a content mod would work too..., but you'd have to change the value each time the app is updated.
Something like this (for dansguardian):
# for DTV iPad app
both confirmed working...
