While it is certain and known fact that Jailbreaking of iDevices is not illegal but it is something that really annoys Apple. With each and every release of the iOS, Apple has always tried to patch all the loop holes that allows users to Jailbreak their device but also make more secure and robust version which cannot be jailbroken. Hence users worldwide are left impatiently waiting for the untethered jailbreak of the iOS 5.
One of the many tools that Apple has used to thwart jailbreaking of their devices is when any user installs an App via iTunes it will notify the user :
Jailbreak detected. App cannot run on a jailbroken device.
Now the user will have to restore back to non-jailbreak mode or go ahead without that specific app. This was a huge issue till now as Jailbroken phones were not being able to install such Apps. Luckily, a new tweak called xCon is efficient enough to bypass this step and directly allows you to install and enjoy those apps on your device.
Although the only limitation being that the list of applications that can be installed is very tiny infact the only apps that be installed right now are :
- Bloomberg Anywhere
- Cisco M-Learning
- DirecTV for iPad
- Grimm’s Fairy Tales
- Time Warner Cable
- Verizon On Demand /FlexView
The developers of the gtweak have requested users to send the list of Apps which are not compatible with xCon and are also taking special requests.
You can help! If you have an app not yet supported by xCon, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of the application and I will do my best to get it patched. I can’t guarantee every app can be patched, but most of them can.
The tweak works by sandboxing the apps into its own memory space. Hence the App is unable to detect the Jailbreak state of the device. While it is almost certain that Apple will also fix and patch this issue in their update.
