    Hey!

    I'm currently using a iPhone 4 on iOS 4.0. Prior to the jailbreak, Skype wasn't being a cause of nuisance and running in the background. However, after the jailbreak, it doesn't seem to do so anymore. I even tried to make a call and the moment I clicked the menu button, he applicationt just quit.

    I simply fail to understand the reason for it behaving this way. I hope someone could be kind enough to help me on this.

    Thanks
    Mak
    PS: I also deleted the app and reinstalled it again. It still exhibits the same behavior.

    Try Restoring the iPhone and then try the jailbreak and finally try Skype. I have no idea, why it is doing that. My Skype app plays fine with the jailbreak.

    PS - Don't restore from backup

    Hey!

    But if I restore my phone, don't I lose all the stuff loaded on it?

    If you mean contacts, no, your Mac has made a copy of them and placed them in Address Book. Just check just in case before beginning.

    It seems that jailbreak broke Skype multitasking on my end... I made skype call, double click, go to SMS, and it disconnect the call....

    Any workarounds?

    EDIT: I found this:

    Reinstall/restore is such a lazy non-answer. If you don't know, don't reply.

    Jailbreak did not break anything with Skype. Skype disallows itself from being backgrounded on jailbroken phones. There isn't really a workaround yet.

    Right I think I have a fix for this. You probably have backgrounder installed right? Backgrounder has been updated with a fix. These are the only settings that worked for me.

    Also enable 'fall back to native'.

    All apps work as they should for me now, even Skype backgrounds as it should. Let me know if it works for you

    Skype doesnt function right on Jailbroken devices...there should be a warning message when you open Skype saying that...or Google it

    Yea I had the same problem as you but I was going to install Backgrounder anyway and this worked. You can either try this out or wait for a fix I guess.

    I second that. I found that out too and thought it was strange but after installing backgrounder, my skype can be put in the background.

    Just go to Cydia and search for it. Its a great complement to (and actually better than) iOS4's so called multitasking. I have been using it on my 3GS for a long time now and multitasking Skype and Pandora long before Apple allowed us to.

    Have you tried making skype calls and pressing Home button? Because it dropped my call....
    And as shown in the other thread I linked above, there are quite a number of people having the same problem too....

    Thanks for the confirmation guys... What Jailbroken apps do you guys have? I'm just trying to see whether any app causing the incompatibility.

    And of course you guys don't use Backgrounder, right?
