    Then your have ZERO idea what your talking about in this conversation. It know this is your site, but your comments don't belong in this thread, with a comment like that.

    Do you even KNOW what jailbreaking is? Jailbreaking is NOTHING BUT adding Cydia app store to your phone, period. When you jailbreak your phone, CYDIA is installed. Then form there, you can access illegal sources that MIGHT contribute to piracy. If you install this source, Cydia WARNS you its illegal and does not recommend it and warns you its could have treats in it.

    SSH your phone is a way into the file system. This can be down with apps SOLD through the official Apple App store. Once your device s jailbroken, then this official apps will allow you in the file system.

    Sorry, but jail breaking is NOT about stealing apps or piracy. Its about an alternative App store, that makes the iPhone the bet smart phone, period. Without it, I would not use an iPhone or any iOS device.

    I have never heard on any app for downloading stream content form a IOS device from any jail breaking source.

    maybe if DIRECTV was not fearful and actually UNDERSTOOD the JB process, who would not have this problem. Do a Google search. I searched many JB forum and cydia to see. Nothing.

    This is a simple matter for DIRECTV:

    Allow the app on all devices! Disable LIVE Stream on any JB device. Now everyone is happy. The cat and Mouse game is a losing game for directv and a waste of mine and resources. Apple can't stop it and you think D* will? :lol:

    It's not a single app that you use to rip the stream, it involves a couple of apps and capturing to a computer. Its a lot more work than I would want to go through to accomplish something that could more easily be done other ways, but it can be done.

    I'm not posting links to what I read, but I'm sure you can find the info on your own if you want to.

    Ok, but I have ZERO desire. Never hared of anyone doing it and I tried Google with nothing.

    OK, but this isn't just about you and me. There ARE people who do it.

    ok :nono2:.

    But you did not state a question. What you stated is wrong and what your stated shows your ignorance when it comes to JB an iOS device.

    But as the owner of this site and when we are are discussing JB and DIRECTV, I think you would be more cautious or informed before making a comment.

    I know your thoughts don't reflect DIRECTVs views or other MODs here. But when I hear who you guys think, makes my wonder if DIRECTV really has a clue when it comes to this stuff too.

    Hello seems like the last post of this thread was quite some time ago, but this is still a problem.

    First time poster here, been reading through this thread and searching all over the web to try to DOWNGRADE my DirectTV app because of the same reason everyone else is on this forum. I have an iPhone and an iPad jailbroken on firmware 6.1 and of course DirectTV SUX and keeps forcing us to update to the latest version which does not work on jailbroken devices (which is dumb anyways and I dont understand why).

    My question is. Since there is a new tweak on CYDIA called Xcon Alias that will make older Direct TV app think that its already updated, where can I download the older version? I am not trying to PIRATE It so dont flame me for asking, and its a free app so this has nothing to do with pirating anything. All I want is the old app that way Xcon Alias can do its job.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Xcon v38 beta 2 works with today's versions of DirecTV for iPad and iPhone on iOS 6.1.

    Unfortunately that tweak that makes Directv app work, but renders other apps that use any mapping useless. (i.e. Zillow, Weather channel app)

    Not sure where to post to the developer on that, tried to tweet that to him, no response.

    I don't know what the policy is on posting direct links, so I will PM you the forum on Github where the discussions are taking place.

    :welcome_s to DBSTalk!

    DirecTV does not force you to update their app. Just like all other apps on iOS, you don't have to download an update if you don't want to.

    FWIW, I am using the 38 Beta 2, and the weather app (TWC) and Facebook apps works fine for me.

    As soon as I removed xCon, the Lego Harry Potter games started working again, so I know it is breaking other apps.

    A fix has been posted for xCon on Github, for anyone interested/needing it.
