Enable DIRECTV to work on Jailbroken iPad
If you are like me, you just heard the news about the newly updated DIRECTV iPad app that enabled live streaming.
As you launch the app, you encounter with the following message: “DIRECTV is not supported on jailbroken devices. Please connect to iTunes to update or restore your service.”
All frustrated, I was looking for a solution, and here is how you enable the device to work on your legally (as far as I know) device.
Download iFile from Cydia.
Once you open iFile, Navigate to “/” and in the search bar look for “com.directv.mobile.ipad.navigator.production.plist” in “Hierarchy mode”
Click on the file and open it in “Text Viewer”
Once the document is open, click on the Magnifying Glass (Search) and type “Jailbreak”.
You will come across the line:
and below it:
on the top left corner of the screen, click on Edit and change the line from <true/> to <false/>
Hit Save and Done on the top right corners and go ahead restart your Directv App.
