    Default Accessing exchange contacts, mail etc via 2012 server on jailbroken device

    Tried to do this but the server detects the iPhone is jailbroken so prohibits the iPhone hooking into server. Is there an app that can fool the server or a check box in the server that will bypass the prohibition ? Have tried googling with no success.

    What server?
    Are you talking about the default mail app?
    Or a particular server at your work or somewhere?

    I've never tried that myself, but using iFile to rename Cydia.app to something else might do the trick. The downside is that every time you want to actually use Cydia you'll have to rename it back, otherwise it will create a new Cydia.app.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    Default Accessing exchange contacts, mail etc via 2012 server on jailbroken device

    I just mean accessing my work exchange mail, calendar, tasks & contacts. Our work server has been upgraded to Exchange 2012 and has the capability of detecting a jailbroken iphone ( previous versions of the server software couldn't. ). So I can't access my work mail, contacts etc when I'm jailbroken.

    I haven't come across any apps or tweaks that can do what you're looking for. You may have to go back to stock since ur iPhone is on their server. Does ur company pay ur bill or is this ur iPhone?

    Update. Did a little more research and there is a way to to this but is highly illegal. Sorry.

    I would have thought there was an option in exchange to turn it off? The IT can't find it though (and he is looking !)

    microsoft has locked out jailbroken apple products?
    thats confusing, to me!
    what your saying is that anybody running email off of a ms server2012 will not be able to access their exchange account if their iphone is jailbroken?
    have you tried other exchange apps? instead of just the default mail one?
    i know there are 2 in the app store that work

    It's an IT policy that's in place to protect against hacks or viruses that they are scared of because the phone is jailbroken. They consider it to be "not secure" which is why you're blocked. I don't see IT losing their job just to disable a feature for ur jb iPhone.

    Yeh the IT guy is willing to do it but can't see where or how. It was not a problem under the old server (2007?)

    xcon can help bypass app detecting a jb device, not sure it will bypass IT security detection. Doesn't hurt to try though.
