I jailbroke my 5 a week ago and have had no problems, until yesterday when I attempted to Skype.

I got a message saying that Skype doesn't work on jailbroken phones.

Is there an app that will allow it or is this just one of the drawbacks?

thanks

The message doesn't say it doesn't work; it just says it's not supported on unmodified versions of iOS. This means Skype won't provide tech support if you're using their app on a jailbroken device and experience problems. Skype has had jailbreak detection for years, but they've never actually had it disable their app. I've used it a lot on my jailbroken phones over the years and I've always had a great experience with it.

I'm using xCon with iOS 6.1. But I'm using Beta 2 or 3 or something like that. I need it to make the stupid directv app work.
So one of the xCon betas does fix the jailbreak detection that disables the Direct TV app? Please list the beta version and how you install it in this thread when you get a chance. Thanks.
