    meaning hide icons?

    If so use Poof (or something named like that, it's been awhile) inside SBSettings.

    I think he means hiding the fact that your device is jailbroken from AppStore apps.

    Correct. Like the Time Warner app detects your phone is jail broken and wont let you watch TV.

    xCon is all I know of. Not sure if it's iOS 6 compatible.

    Yeah, I just noticed that my DirecTV app is the same way....very annoying. I'm jailbroken so I can't schedule my DVR. Dumb. Xcon doesn't fix the current version for me.

    I used Unrestrict Premium 2 and it installs Xcon and worked perfect with HBOGO, TWC, and Flixster.\

    However the Airplay Mirroring did not work yet...There was an update though so hopefully it works, but I haven't tried yet.

    To use apps which don't work if your phone is jailbroken. For example, Lovefilm.

    Which didn't work? What? Could you explain that to me a little bit more in detail.
    Which apps wouldn't work if the device is jailbroken?

    Certain apps check to see if you're jailbroken and either don't work or have limited functionality. TimeWarner Cable and HBO Go are two examples.

    I need something like this now too. Can't believe that these companies actually block you from using their apps just because you're jailbroken. I need to be able to use the DirecTV app to schedule recordings when I'm away from home.

    Just email the dev of xCon and he will add the app in so it works.

    And, who are you? How can you post an useless reply and expect people to not be offended? Had you bothered reading this thread, you would have answered your question.

    Had you read the posts in this thread you would have had the answer to your question.

    But instead you posted the same thing which was asked earlier, and it was something that was already answered.

    Ok, there was another thread here...the beta version of xCon does fix the DirecTV app...you have to add the developer's repo and install from there.
