Thanks for sharing the results.OK, I updated and it's still working on an iPad 4 with XCON 38 installed for those who wants to update.
Awesome! You are very welcome. I hope you're enjoying your jailbroken apple device as much as we do here at MR.@BumpyFlatline - Thanks for the info. This is my very 1st Apple product which was given to me for Christmas by my Mom. I Jailbroke it the 2nd day it was available when we were on IOS 6.1.1. I even unjailbroke and updated to IOS 6.1.2 after reading here it was safe to update before IOS 6.1.3 was released.
Anyway, good information and I do have iFunBox but mostly I SSH into my iPad using FileZilla since that's what I use for my SonyReaderBoards Website which I'm the administrator. I'm just really familiar with FileZilla. But I never tried to install an ipa file so will definitely use iFunBox if I ever need to restore an app. So I will make copies of my purchases on my computer.
**I could not find in iTunes where the "transfer purchases." Could you point me where to look. Thanks
I didn't know this. Thanks for the information, this is why I like reading these forums, always learning something new.Thanks for sharing the results.
FYI in the future, I believe you can just connect your device to your computer and use iTunes to "transfer purchases". This will put a copy of the currently installed xfinity app IPA file onto your computer. This file allows you to install that version whenever you want. If xCon does not work with the new update, just delete the app from your device and use this IPA file to install the version which was working with xCon.
This way you won't ever have to worry about installing a bad update. I transfer purchases all the time and keep old copies of apps to have this safety net.
Installing IPA files is really easy. You can use the app called IPA Installer from the BigBoss repo in Cydia, iFunBox (this is what I use), or iTunes (I think...been a while since I've used iTunes for anything other than transfer purchases haha). There are probably a bunch of other ways to install IPA files too. Bottom line is, its super easy to create this fallback option and also allows you to never have to ask around if some new version of an app works.
There are some caveats but for the most part this should work. You can run into issues if an app is pulled from the App Store. Sometimes the IPA file won't install correctly. But of course if you're only concerned about apps which rely on xCon, then I don't see those types of apps getting pulled anytime soon haha. Hope this helps.
