xCon Cydia Tweak Updated To Support New Services, Increase Stability And Bug Fixes

It is an obvious fact that Apple is not a fan of Jailbreaking. Since the very beginning, Jailbreaking has been something Apple has tried to stop. They have done this through releasing regular firmware updates, using new bootroms in their iOS devices, etc. Even certain companies who have released applications in the App Store are not a fan of people who Jailbreak their iOS devices. In fact, applications like Time Warner Cable have been built with Jailbreak detection software to disable the application from running on Jailbroken iOS devices.

Luckily however, as Jailbreaking is all about innovation, there is a Cydia tweak available called xCon that will patch these applications so that they can still run on Jailbroken iOS devices. It has been some time since we have updated you on the status of xCon, thus today we thought it would be a good idea to shed some more light on this Cydia tweak once again.

xCon Cydia Tweak v20

Over the last few months xCon has seen numerous updates to improve compatibility with a variety of new services, improve stability and also fix numerous bugs a lot of people initially complained about. For those curious on just what services xCon now supports you can take a look at the compatibility list below.

  • AlwaysOnPC
  • Bloomberg Anywhere
  • Bright House
  • Cablevision
  • Cisco M-Learning
  • Cox iPad
  • DirecTV iPad
  • Flixster
  • Golden Cinema
  • Good For Enterprise
  • Grimm’s Fairy Tale apps
  • Hanabank
  • KB starPlus
  • Maxis Movies
  • Samsungcard
  • Time Warner Cable
  • TV d’Orange
  • Verizon OnDemand/FlexView

xCon works by running apps with anti-jailbreak protection in a special contained environment where they cannot detect whether you have a Jailbroken iDevice or not. Thus, allowing you to run whatever App Store application you wish, without having to worry about whether it has anti-jailbreak protection or not. The developer has even mentioned that if you notice an application that is not supported by the xCon Cydia tweak to send him an email (n00neimp0rtant@me.com).

For those interested in the latest version of the xCon Cydia tweak, which at this time is version 20, you can find it through the ModMyi repo for FREE. Don’t forget to let us know what you think of the xCon Cydia tweak in the comments.

  • guest

    yup – doesn’t work with Good – just tried it.

    I’ve also got the same issue… I could only find an old .deb for v11 online, so I’ll try installing that for now, until we get a fix.

    this xcon…. It’s a beautiful thing. It truly represents the glory of the jailbreaking community in its entirety. I believe i speak for us all when i say, “Bravo. A job well done” plus now i can watch Sherlock Holmes on my ipod without Flixster being a little bitch about it. (no offense flixster)

    Use cox Contour App. It’s better than TV Connect and has no Jailbreak detection. Contour lets you watch on demand titles and the User interface is much nicer.

  • Lazarus Arguelles
