I had this whilst trying to read the latest news on Sky Sports News the other day. Very annoying, as I don’t believe that a jailbroken device should in anyway limit my use of the phone. Anyway, if you do get this, then install xcon from cydia. Its a small tweak to tell apps that are asking if your phone is jailbroken that its not. I installed it, and Sky Go works fine now. Sorted.
Since I wrote this, its been broken/patched/ruined. So in order to do this now, you need to have a jailbroken phone, with Cydia and Installous). You add a custom Cydia repository and install an application from there, which is a cracked version (I still believe you have to be a Sky customer – which I am):
- Open Cydia
- Click ‘Manage’
- Choose ‘Sources’
- Click ‘Edit’
- Click ‘Add’
- Enter ‘http://n00neimp0rtant.dyndns.org/repo/’ (without the quotes)
- Let it refresh and update.
- Search for ‘Old SkyGo (Patched)’, and install it
- Quit Cydia, and open Installous, and in the Downloads folder you should find Sky Go. Install it.
