Cablevision Blocks Jailbroken iPads On Optimum TV App

CableVision Logo

It’s happened, Cablevision is blocking jailbroken iPads from using their Optimum TV app. When did Cablevision become the jailbreak police for Apple? I’m in my apartment trying to use the app legitimately, why does the OS matter? I guess I’ll try the app again when I upgrade to iOS 5, I’m not getting rid of my jailbreak for this.

    As shady as this sounds. I installed this patch and the app works for me again.

    I haven’t tried this myself, but I read folks at forums say installing this .deb file works. However, I can’t find anything that says it works on the iPad.
