    When I was jail broken I would use fake my location which worked flawlessly. However before traveling abroad I was forced to restore my iPhone and iPad to 7.1.1 so as to have realize devices while I was abroad, at the behest of having jail broken devices.

    I'm simply wondering if there is any work around to faking my location, perhaps preferably without a jailbreak, but if a jailbreak was possible with 7.1.1, I'd be for it as well.

    All is help truly appreciated regarding the topic and can reply in furthering the discussion at hand.

    Unless you have iPhone4, no JB for 7.1.1 and without jailbreak no location spoofer.

    A VPN would be your best bet of changing your location on stock iOS. It isn't really faking your location but redirecting your traffic to another country and then to that site

    I'll give this a shot right now but when I was in Europe last week I was using a VPN service with the server in the US and I still remember Facebook knowing I was in Europe, never mentioning any US location.

    locations are tracked by IP address, not GPS

    Are you suggesting a VPN will then work?

    I know a ton of people that use VPN to change location to other countries. Works great and if you pick a good pay VPN like PIA, you'll barely notice using it 24/7. https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/

    A great alternative to that would also be hotspotshield

    pick whichever one you like best. i think both should come with a trial (hot spot shield comes with a 7 day trial)

    I tried hotspot, I wasn't really a fan. I got PIA and it was the better of the 2 for me but it's a lil more. But I locked in the price for 29 a year during a sale.

    Okay so I'm trying out Spotflux, which I used abroad in Egypt.

    However I do remember using this service and Netflix still not working saying "Netflix isn't available in your country"

    I installed spotflux in my MacBook Pro and when I'm logged into Facebook, Facebooks 'where are you' lists locations in Turkey and Instanbul. However I can do this manually without a VPN if I just type in turkey or Instanbul into my Facebook status update.

    As for iOS devices and spotflux, even when the VPN service is on it'll give me the same true location that I'm at, regardless of the VPN being set elsewhere.

    Admittedly however I'm using the spotflux free trial and don't believe I'm allowed to choose when my VPN server is located.
