    are there any apps in cydia to trick a website into thinking you aren't viewing a web site in safari on a mobile phone? for instance, when trying to go to redtube.com or tnaflix.com on my phone, it brings me to one page that tells me i have to pay to view it. but if you go to those pages on a computer, they are completly free. or if you type in http://www.facebook.com you automaticly get redirected to http://m.facebook.com for a mobile phone.....

    is there any app, or any way to trick safari into thinking i'm trying to open the web pages from a computer, and not from a mobile phone?

    that's awesome, do you know what it's called? or is it in the "changes" section of cydia?

    It's called UserAgent Faker. Note that it's an add-on to SBSettings in case you don't have that installed.

    There is a web browser in the app store called "Fake Web" that will do what you want. It took just a little bit of setup to do it, but now when I use it, sites believe I am using Mozilla on a Mac (you set it to anything as long as you know the settings.

    I set this up long ago so I could have access to MobileMe from my phone.

    Hmmm... I didn't have that problem. Best to contact the author.

    On a side note, I once had a problem with a different toggle. After a few Email exchanges with it's author, we got it working.

    I installed it today. It works fine. Perhaps try a reinstall?

    Okay. I thought the size mismatch warning was upon running the app. I Googled it and learned more. I'll refrain from posting those links, as I cannot vouch for authenticity, but I recommend Googling "size mismatch error in Cydia" and checking those out.

    I have tried multiple times to add the iMobileCinema repository, and I still can't get it to show up in Cydia.:confused:
