Error – Sky Go is not supported on Jailbroken devices

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.

–UPDATE–

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):

  1. Open Cydia
  2. Click ‘Manage’
  3. Choose ‘Sources’
  4. Click ‘Edit’
  5. Click ‘Add’
  6. Enter ‘http://n00neimp0rtant.dyndns.org/repo/’ (without the quotes)
  7. Let it refresh and update.
  8. Search for ‘Old SkyGo (Patched)’, and install it
  9. Quit Cydia, and open Installous, and in the Downloads folder you should find Sky Go. Install it.
  10. Done.
