    I see that DirecTV released v1.5.0 of their app for the iPad, including "DIRECTV Anywhere" allowing you to stream programming when not at home.

    I have used xCon (v17) to bypass the jailbreak detection in the D* application. (I have not upgraded to xCon v.18 as v.17 works fine for me with v1.3.9 of the D* app.)

    Has anyone tried xCon v17 or 18 with D* v1.5.0?

    Have the same question here. Don't want to take the update if Xcon won't work with this version of DTV

    New DirecTV iPad app just came out, I installed the update on my iPad

    I have xCon v32-1 installed, the new DirecTV iPad app doesn't work, you get the standard warning/nag screen about not being able to use a jailbroken device

    DirecTV must've changed their detection scheme, so hopefully the xCon author is able to work around that in a future update

    Add http://n00neimp0rtant.dyndns.org/repo/ as a source, and those are zeros, not capital "O"

    It is now at version 35-2 by the way...

    In Cydia

    Some of you are behind and some are WAY behind

    XCon is at v-35-2 now and it does "fix" DirecTV 1.50 for iPad

    Add this repo

    Yep, after upgrading to the latest Xcon, the DirecTV iPad app now launches, bypassing the jailbreak protection, but the app shows "No Connected Receivers Found" and cannot see my three receivers on the same network as the iPad

    I'm not getting the "unable to retrieve configuration" error

    What are you doing in the Directv app before it happens ? I'll try it on my end and see if I get the error.

    I launch the app and it stays on the 'retrieving application configuration' screen for about a minute and then that error message pops up.

    I'm guessing you probably uninstalled the Directv app and then reinstalled it and still got the error ?

    accidently upgraded the DirecTV app to v1.6.6 on my JB'd maxiPad... xCon no longer works.

    Anyone know where to find an older version of the DirecTV app? Or, how long it typically takes the xCon author to update his AMAZING fix?

    Cheers,

    xCon and Directv app 1.6.6

    I'm still having trouble after I accidentally updated my Directv App to 1.6.6. I have xCon 36 installed. Is this the update you were referring to? I just get the Directv logo when I open the app with no error message. Please let me know the steps you took to fix your issue.
