    Default General question about Sky Go.

    I've just had Sky installed in my house, Paid for the Sky Go Extra, So I can have it on a few of my iDevices to then find out that 'Streaming is not available on Jailbroken Devices!'

    Greeaaaaaaaat.

    Tried and googled alot and found the 'xCon' app.
    Tried that, Don't work, I think SkyGo had a update.

    Is there anything in the works for it to be able to patch Sky Go? Or is there already one in Cydia that does this?

    Regards.

    When you want to use sky go change the name of cydia.app.
    Just make sure you change it back before you install anything

    Using ifile or ifunbox, highly recommend ifile as it is on your iDevice, so you can do it on the fly, whenever you want.
    Navigate to applications folder and rename cydia.app
    Name it like xcydia.appx
    So when you want to change it back just delete the "x's"

    Okay thanks.

    But why would Changing the Cydia app's name make SkyGo work?

    App reads apps on device. If cydia is present, device is jailbroken

    Yeah what idonev said.. Easy ways to get there, open ifile, then keep hitting back button in top left until you are at \ page (root)
    The applications, then change cydia.app you can see the file location in my first image at the very top near status bar

    Try rebooting the phone after you rename Cydia. See if that helps...
