Thread: How to make it so apps can't tell if phone is jailbroken?

    Default How to make it so apps can't tell if phone is jailbroken?
    Hi,

    A banking app that I use won't run on jailbroken iPhones. If you run it when jailbroken, a message comes up saying it doesnt run on hacked phones. Is there a way to trick the app into thinking the phone isn't jailbroken?

    Cheers

    I read a few weeks ago that other people were having the same issue with a few different programs (can't find the link now). It's pretty damn annoying as I can't jailbreak because I need that banking app.

    The problem occurs on a very small amount of apps. I've used two that it has occurred with. Skype, but I could still use it. And NotifyMe. I later purchased NotifyMe because I like it a lot. Point is, if you really need the app just pay for it.

    That's the problem...The app is free!! It's a free banking app which (im guessing for 'security' reasons) won't run on jailbroken iPhones.

    Oh, I see. I don't know about this situation. Looks like your going to have to find another app to use.

    Hahaha.....ya, there is the second problem; it's the banks iPhone app, so there are no alternatives. So I either use the app and don't jailbreak, or jailbreak and use all that comes with that and not the banking app i use all the time.

    Can't you access your banking info from your browser?

    Try going thru their website instead. U may need ua faker though which isn't 4.0 ready

    Nope. In Korea it was LAW (until a few weeks ago) that all banking transactions must go through Internet Explorer and use ActiveX (Safari won't work). I don't run windows and hence need the app to do my banking.

    Well their is a much more time consuming and expensive approach, I assumed your running OSX. You could dual boot to Windows. But if you don't want to go through the process, you're going to have to choose either to Jailbreak or not.

    In the same boat here, none of my banking apps or pay systems will work on JB iPhone. I think its pretty annoying how Korea has set their internet standard to IE and activeX controls, but thats another rant for another day.

    But yeah still trying to find a way to trick apps into thinking its not jailbroken... any other ideas?
