    I have jailbreak iphone (for blackra1n) but still buy geniue software from app store. Few days ago bought c&c but can install it. I get error message while installing that say , game cant be installed because iphone contects has been modificated.

    Anyone face this problem?

    You don't understand my question?

    Some games may perform checks in order to ascertain whether or not you purchased them. If your iPhone has been jailbroken, there is a chance it will fail those tests.

    What is c&c? If even the legit copy won't install, then try the pirated version. It should be cracked so that it will install regardless of jailbreak or if the phone has been "modificated" :p. (before people hurl objects at me, I'm only suggesting this since he already paid for the app) ;)

    I don't want come back to official firmware, as o2 in UK told there is no way to unlock phone. In future i will need sim from other country in this phone.

    I have bought this game, don't want download illegal stuff so looks like i will not play in this game. Hope there will be not a lot games with checking a firmware, or o2 will start unlocking phones, even for money.

    C&C = command and conquer

    Or perhaps a screenshot? I feel like I have not heard of an app refusing to install merely because of jailbreaking before....

    I've heard reports of the cracked version of C&C crashing at startup. Guess the cracked version was released prematurely, or the actual app itself checks for JB strings?

    "the application Red Alert was not installed on the iphone because its resources have been modified"

    Have you tried removing it from your iTunes and re-downloading it from the App Store ?
    If you're the only purchaser of the app having this issue, it may be a corrupt download.

    Sounds like the app is checking for integrity (perhaps to make cracking more difficult?) and won't install if it detects changes to certain files.

    This is nothing to do with the jailbroken device. The message is due to a problem with the the app file which is failing a checksum integrity check during install, if it was downloaded from the appstore as suggested it may be corrupt and needs to be deleted and re-downloading.

    i also downloaded the same game from the app store and it installed fine but when installing the map pack it wouldnt let me. I found out that it checks for appsync so i uninstalled it and it worked fine

    The solution was to deactivate and activate my computer, in itunes. Game working now.

    Thanks for help.
