Jailbreaking question

Hi All,

I have an iphone that has been jail broken. I am trying to use software  on it but this software checks to see if the device has been jail broken. I heard that there is an app you can download that tricks software into believing the phone is not jail broken does anyone know what this is ?

Re: Jailbreaking question

Not wishing to give potentially "illegal/unethical" advice. It would appear that based on these article's:

http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/201 ... -uk-iphone

http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/apple ... ur-iphone/

You're OK with regards to legality jailbreaking your iphone in the UK, as long as you're not infringing copyright.

Last time I looked and I'm sure you know this already but jailbreaking will set a default root password that should be changed.

There also maybe issues with T&C's for both the phone and the app, but you'll need to review these yourself.

A quick google for "iphone software bypass jail break check" shows that xCon may do the trick. Although some people have mentioned it won't work for all apps.

All in all a long way for me to say xCon, but for my conscience I needed to write the above.  :P

Re: Jailbreaking question

And YMMV with xCon, depending on the app in question. Some apps, such as those related to mobile device management, have gotten a bit better recently at detecting this sort of manipulation.
