    If you can run it on a jb device then u can patch it to watch tv over VPN from anywhere, even works great over optimum wifi at the train station ;p , that's why theyre trying to stop us.

    It's detecting Cydia, people in other forums are reporting that changing the name using ifile or similar still works, someone needs to release a new patch.

    If you have ifile, go to var/stash/applications and change cydias name it will at least let you use the app. Im having trouble trying to get the vpn patch to work.

    UPDATE: Resolved!

    Use Cydia to remove any Optimum patches you may have installed previously.

    Use iFile and browse to \Applications, find and rename it to something else ( Optimum app will now allow you to login without detecting JB. It's just looking for Cydia, when I find a new patch i'll upload it here. NOTE: Cydia won't start if it's not named back to so remember to rename it back after watching TV until new patch arrives.

    VPN still working! Use new patch: com.hantek.disableoptimumvpndetection_1.0.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb

    I can also confirm live tv over vpn is now working with NO patch installed on my iPhone 4. My iPad 2 needed hantek's patch. Just rename Cydia on both devices.
