I am on ios 6.0.1 and the app requiers 6.1, how can I run it? There was something about changing a plist value with ifile to make the os think you are on a new version, can some one tell me how to do that ? Thanks!

Instructions are from ios5 but still apply just change version numbers accordingly...

Step 1: Open up the iFile application on the device to gain access to the file structure. Alternatively, users can SSH into the jailbroken device using a program such as FileZilla or CyberDuck.

Step 2: Navigate to the following directory – ‘/System/Library/CoreServices‘.

Step 3: At the very bottom of the CoreServices directory there will be a file called ‘SystemVersion.plist‘. Open up this file up by selecting it and then tapping on ‘Text Viewer‘.

Step 4: At the bottom of the file is a line of text which reads ‘<string>5.0.1</string>‘. Edit the file using iFile, or a standard text editing package and amend the ’5.0.1′ to say ’5.1′. Note: If you are running an earlier version of iOS, the version number contained within the string tags will reflect that version.

You can just add developer abilities to your Apple ID in order to download it from the appstore, just go through the set-up process and at the end go to the appstore on an iDevice and go to 'Apps by Apple' then click on of them. Scroll down and press developer info and you'll see the app, if you're signed in to your developer ID

His problem is that the app isn't compatible with his current version of iOS.

Won't that cost him $100?
It doesn't cost you to register as a developer. And it gives you access to developer tools.

It does however cost ($100) to get access to developer builds. You also need to sign paperwork.
