General Could there ever be a tweak that tricks apps into AirPlaying?

    Some apps disallow AirPlaying, Comcast for instance, doesn't let you airplay because they would rather charge you $8 for a set-top box and installation fees.

    That being said, would such a tweak be illegal?

    I just want to mirror my iPad to my tv regardless of what app I am running.

    (I'm hoping an app similar to Xcon supports this feature)

    Unrestrictpremium did that job perfectly when I was under iOS 6.

    Also my internet provider offers a functionality in their router which enables an Airplay client.

    My brother subscribed to a paid channel which he watched via TV only. He gave me his login information for the iOS app (one connection at a time only). Combination of this Cydia tweak + the Airplay client allowed me to enjoy the channel directly on my tv. Not HD quality but still!

    Hope it will be updated for iOS 7.

    Doesn't iOS just let you mirror your entire screen.

    Yes but as soon as you launch some apps (like Comcast in my case) it says it does not allow airplay.

    Unrestrictpremium removed that restriction for all the apps I used it for. That was when I was on 6.1.2. I don't know if it's been updated for iOS 7 yet.

    Unrestrictpremium only allowed me to mirror the Xfinity Tv Go app using the hdmi adapter. No other settings worked on my ipad 3, on 6.1.2, to allow full screen video on my tv.
