    Verizon iPhone 5, 6.1 (10B143) jailbroken of course.

    I try to play a video I own through Amazon prime and it starts the player, it flashes up on screen for a split second then immediately aborts and goes back to the initial Amazon screen.

    I googled a little and about all I can find it that AP doesn't play on JB'd stuff.

    Any fix for it or am I just SOL?

    Thanks...

    :)

    I am also curious about this. I want to ditch Netflix and get amazon prime. Their also says that it won't stream on a cellular network, wifi only. Couldn't we use something like 3G restrictive?

    I have no issues playing videos through Amazon Prime. It works on my iPhone 5 and iPad 2 (both jailbroken).

    Keep me posted because I too have Amazon prime. I have the app 3G restrictor so I'll try it out and let you know if you have not already done so.

    Good to know. I need to get to it. I just joined prime so need to see how I would go about using it.

    When I click on a movie the player starts then then disappears.

    I got it to work. 3G unrestrictor works for using a cellular network and xCon works to patch the jailbreak check. This is awesome. I'm ditching Netflix. I can also stream from the browser with my Playbook.
