    Hi,

    Recently, applications from Korea detect if my iphone is jailbroken.
    If so, the applications shouts that yours is jailbroken following closing themselves.

    It seems that there is APIs to detect it so applications start detecting it not to run on jailbroken phones.

    Anyone knows how to avoid this problems?

    I'm guessing he means they verify if the apps are cracked or not.

    So, you're using a cracked app in korea and their servers are calling you out on it?

    Sounds like it's working as intended.

    They are currently applications about finance.
    But it's getting spread such as book stores and online markets and recommended to first check if the devices are jailbroken or not.

    I don't know if you can see it as English when you click the following link.

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id357484932?mt=8

    What's New in Version 1.1.0 says translation to English that " 1. Improved modules to ban jailbreak"

    This application actually can not run on my iphone and it gives me a warning not to jailbreak to use it.

    The apps are not cracked but the phone is jailbroken and the apps verifies that I do jailbreak my phone and it said that I am not able to run the app.

    If this can be verified, I would think this would be pretty big news. :eek:

    I can see why a finance application for a bank would want to ban jailbroken devices, considering how recently some jailbroken devices can be hacked via wifi/bluetooth proximity, because of pple not changing their root passwords via ssh etc. etc. Granted it sucks for you, but imagine the liability were this app hacked and a user's bank info stolen via a jailbroken phone.

    But if someone doesn't know password or OTP code, money can not be stolen but hackers could see only how much you have and nothing else.

    Banning jailbreak was found around 3months ago and getting spread now.
    The Korean government seems to make it under an obligation.
    Guess what? iTunes store in Korea can not find games application and podcasts because of ridiculous Korean laws.
    Youtube left Korea because of censorship laws. (You might hear similar news about China against Google for censorship laws)
    Now, no iphone apples? I am sick of it.
