Got the following error when I loaded the DirecTV app this afternoon.

"This app is not supported on jailbroken devices. Please connect to Apple iTunesto update or restore your device"

LOL

Install xCon from Cydia. Should get around that. Worked for my Flixster app.

Thank you. Is this a constant cat and mouse game now? What I mean is that when DirecTV (or whoever else) updates their app, are we going to need a new version of xcon to bypass the jb detection?

Yes. Although, DirecTV, doesn't update their apps too often.

I added that repository, but I don't see 3BB2, all I see is a 37-1 which doesn't work.

EDIT: Must have had a typo, or the repository was down. Should really read those error messages Cydia popped out. Got it.And the App now works.

xCon - DirecTv not working now

Hi,

I went to DirecTv app and got the message that it doesn't work with jailbroken devices.

A few weeks ago, I updated xCon to 39~beta3. I did not update the Directv.

So it looks like this version of xCon isn't working?

Any help is much appreciated!!!

Take care!

-----------
5/8 - Updating the DirecTV app (2.4.4) solved the problem!!!!

Do i need to have a directv subscription to be able to use the directv app?

Or is there a tweak to use this app compeltely free?

So you can program the DirecTV DVR that you don't own? No - you can't watch DTV for free when everyone else has to pay $30 - $100 per month (unless a friend gives you their account info I guess - but even then it's limited).

You must have a DirecTV account.

Theft is prohibited here, so there would never be a thread encouraging theft of cable/satellite TV signals

Oh, and by the way, the current version of xCon (39-beta3) still works with the May 15th update of the DirecTV app for iPhone ! :D
