    I'm trying to use the bloomberg anywhere app on ipad, as I'm a bloomberg professional user. When opening the app, i receive a security alert stating that the app detected that the ipad was jailbroken, and refuses to run. Is there any way to prevent apps from detecting the jailbreak? thanks

    Wait.. soon enough there will be a daemon that will sandbox apps into their own memory space so that you can use them without that annoying detection.

    Any resolution?


    TD7: Were you able to find a workaround?

    I tried contacting Bloomberg about this and they told me that they don't allow the app to run on jailbroken devices for the benefit of their customer's own safety. I think that is absurd as do a few other of my Bloomberg sales reps.

    Nope. Just glad that at least the iPhone version (which still pales in comparison to the bberry version) doesn't have this limitation, but I'm hesitant to apply any of the bberg app updates for iPhone for this reason.

    Are you serious there apps that don't allow you to run them if you're JB?

    Never heard of anything like this on the iPhone which apps are you guys talking about?

    I guess Bloomberg has so many subscribers it can afford to not worry about losing a few.

    I know also the GOOD email client app has a setting on the corporation side that checks for a JB, if your iPhone has one it wipes the data of it and informs IT! bummer as I would drop my BB as my second line otherwise!

    There was another app, I think it was called fotochat, that refused certain features on a jailbroken phone. I think that whole app is a scam though.
