I might have missed it, but why discriminate against jailbroken devices?
Jailbroken devices are not subject to the same controls - and therefore protection - as standard iPhones. This means people have a far greater level of access to the underlying OS and file structure, including the data and content of applications and the code used to write them. With the right knowledge and this level of access, who knows what somebody could do with your app... especially one that accesses Sky digital content.
Developers will want to protect this and protect the data the application accesses, to make sure nobody is exploiting it. Let's say somebody manages to work around the authentication process for Sky Go to allow anybody, even non-Sky customers, access to all channels, Sky wont accept this risk so have put the shutters down.
You can't blame them, their business is based around providing this content for a fee, why would they accept any risk that people could work around this?
It's all software at the end of the day. If one man can make it, another can break it.
That's fair enough then.
Is Sky+ safe from this or has that ceased to work too?
Ok I've figured out how to get the Sky mobile TV app back onto my phone if you had it installed prior to the Sky Go app. This only works if you previously had the Sky Mobile TV app and you are using the same device.
1) Open the "app store" app on your iPhone
2) Select updates
3) Select "purchased"
4) Scroll down the list and you will be able to re install the Sky mobile TV app
As an added bonus, ESPN works even if you arnt subscribed to it
Step 2...on my phone you have to go to "Updates" not "Downloads" to get to that "Purchased" option.
Ok so i've downloaded it but it says my subscription has lapsed and I need to resubscribe.
If I do this will I be charged?
The only downside is Sky Mobile TV is linked to a device with the UDID number. The app will only work if its the device it's linked to.
That means, if you upgraded to iPhone 4S or replaced your iPhone at Apple store after Sky Mobile TV was discontinued, it wouldn't work on your iPhone as Sky wouldn't link your newer device to the app
Ok well I haven't changed my iPhone but I never signed up to use the Mobile TV app anyway. Does that mean I can't use it now?
Yes, you can't because you'll need to contact via website or phone and they'll point you to Sky Go
Just re-downloaded mine, but unfortunately my Iphone is a replacement and it says i have it on to many devices, any way to reset it without calling sky?
does anyone know if the wroter for xcon has now added sky go to the app in order for it to work???? or is there another way round making sky go work again on JB phones????
The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I have already emailed him - i have also put it on my Facebook page that has near 15,000 fans likes and asked them to mail aswell ( Well the Uk & Irl users ) but the more emails he gets the more chance he will update xcon tweak
great news, are we sure this will work cos if so gonna leave my phone as is??
Oops. Now edited thanks.
Anyone know if the previous version of Sky Go still works? Anyone got the previous version?
I unstalled the previous version of Sky Go 2.0.1, but still no luck
Any fix yet?
I have noticed that the old Sky mobile App will only work on a Jailbroken device if it was previously used on that device and registered to it. I have restored Sky mobile TV on my Jailbroken iPad, and it works fine (but without the movie channels which were never available on Sky Mobile and there is no ESPN on the iPad version).
However the same app will not work on my iPhone 4s, which was registered with Sky Go, but not with the old Sky Mobile. I get a message saying that I need to contact Sky to register Sky Mobile on the device.
really pisstaking that sky has done this need a tweak by monday , someone please tell me if a tweak does come out
Sky are a joke, I'm so glad I don't have a account with them, maximum of 2 devices each month, if you remove one you have to wait until the next month to register it again, they are con artists.
Anyway I shouldn't be moaning really as I use a friends Sky Go account.
Lol same in using my cousins but still a fukin pissteake
does anybody know if the writer of xcon has added sky go to the list of approved apps yet, mobile tv is good but when F1 channel is launched next week this wont appear on here so really want to get sky go back up and running, or has anyone heard of any other way round the bug sky have just put in there latest software release??
If everyone sent an email to the Developer of the xCon tweak asking if they would patch the Sky Go App, they might try and fix it and push out an update.
has anyone got any good news ref getting sky go app to work??? so annoying, thought a patch would be out by now
No news yet, I'm afraid
Looks like he is working on it though if his twitter feed is anything to go by.
why whats his twitter id please??
