    The problem is that it did work. Now it stopped working for no reason. Others were having issues with the new version 1.6.6 yesterday so I really don't think it's a jailbreak issue.

    Yes it is if you choose to jailbreak a product then you cant expect it to work like supported ones...seriously? If it was supposed to work a certain way then you wouldnt have to jailbreak it....cmon!

    I don't...it actually works better than a "supported" one. I would never use an iPad that is not jailbroken again. Those that were having issues yesterday were not jailbroken so I'm sure it's something on DirecTV's end.

    The reason why I brought it up is because I did not think the issue was related to JBing since the APP did not even attempt to log in nor stated the message about not supporting JB devices (like it always did in the past.)

    Not complaining, just curious if others whom are not JB were having the same issue.

    DTV does not support Jailbroken devices so your not really asking in the right place

    Yeah cause nobody here has a jailbroken iPad here. You are being no help, you have no clue what you're talking about.

    Let me clarify

    I was trouble shooting to see if others were having the stuck at the logo issue when launching the APP. If they were and they are not JB, then I know it may have nothing to do with whether or not my device is JB. If everyone whom is JB is having the same issue, then I know it is simply because it is JB.

    I did ask the same questions on other JB forums and only a few are having this issue, which told me it may or may not be due to JB. Now I am doing further investigating to see if those that do not have a JB device may also be having the same issue.

    IOW, forget the fact that I am JB. Is anyone who is not JB having their APP remain stuck at the DirecTV logo?

    No need for rudeness. JB phones are not supported by DIRECTV®.
    If an update to the app—any app— breaks the break, so to speak, it's not "at fault".

    Nobody was being rude...and we are talking about the iPad, not a phone, not that it really matters. The iPad was working fine on my JB iPad until today. Unless DirecTV made the old version not work anymore there is no reason it should not be working still.

    If this was directed at me, let me apologize. I did not mean to come off as crass at all. I was just trying to be extremely clear.

    My bad; it wasn't directed at you at all. I took too long to reply, so it didn't appear right after banditt's post.

    Banditt: Assuredly you were rude to wahooq. Please knock it off.

    DirecTV certainly doesn't have to support it. They have valid reasons and requirements of their own. Plus, Jailbreaking an iPad is technically a violation of the DMCA.

    It's not a violation of the DMCA, get your facts straight. Jailbreaking was ruled legal last year. There is nothing for DirecTV to support. With the xCon tweak it runs exactly as if the iPad was not jailbroken. It is an ongoing issue for all iPads, so I know it's not a jailbreak issue.

    I tried that too, it just hangs at the authentication stage.
