DTV does not support Jailbroken devices so your not really asking in the right place
My comments and opinions are my own and not necessarily those of DirecTV.

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".
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

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.

The exemption does not apply to iPads.

From http://www.loc.gov/t...010/10-169.html

(2) Computer programs that enable wireless telephone handsets to execute software applications, where circumvention is accomplished for the sole purpose of enabling interoperability of such applications, when they have been lawfully obtained, with computer programs on the telephone handset.

An iPad is not a wireless telephone handset. Of course things could change in the next ruling, but it could either expire altogether, or be expanded.

It's a grey area right now, but been assumed to include iPads until an official ruling is made.

Doesn't really matter if it's legal or not. It's not going to change anything.

I'm not an Apple Groupie, I have a Blackberry. But rooted phones have caused me issues at work so if the exemption expires, I might be able to get them to agree that we don't allow them to connect to company resources and I don't have to support them.

I haven't upgraded to the new version yet and when I try to use the prev version of the app which worked a few days ago I enter my password and it just sits there with no message of any kind. Yes I am JB but I am referring to the LAST version which has not changed and has always worked not the new version.

What I think is happening is on previous releases a message would pop up saying "YOU MUST UPDATE." I think that is where it is hanging up.

BTW, the IPHONE version always works fine on the IPAD whether JB or not which is all I really need to schedule recordings. I have no use for "DirecTV Everywhere" (or hardly anywhere as the case may be :)).
