The newly released Skype application for iPhone has been found to crash on jailbroken iPhones.

For many users Skype crashes when trying to input text. For others Skype will freeze within 30-50 seconds of usage.

According to BigBoss, Saurik has released a new mobile substrate and the issue is fixed. No need for intelliscreen or any other hacks. Just update mobile substrate from cydia. Update to v0.9.2803-1 (or newer) of mobile substrate.

To fix the Skype crash, all mobilesubstrate based hacks are disabled on the Skype app. This means you cannot use voipover3g or backgrounder with Skype app. Do not ask how to do it or point out that it doesnt work. The developer of mobile substrate has already stated that it will not work.

Skype also crashes on a standard out on the box un touched ipod touch 8G so perhaps there is somethingelse more fundamental going on

Have used it and it works, but not sure how useful skype will be if I cant get it running in the background or cant make calls over 3G ... I can understand why Apple dont want apps running in the background because it can slow the phones down, but the benefits of an app running in the background far outweigh the negatives .... I am begining to think I made a wrong choice choosing Iphone ....

Please pay attention - after you upgrade the mobile substrate it is possible the yellowsnow (3G soft unlock) to be affected. I have an Orange SIM Cards and I had to redo the yellowsnow activation procedure because I have obtained the INVALID SIM Cards Message after the upgrade.

I downloaded it and used it instantly on my jailbroken iPhone 3G called Australia and even had better call quality that using skype on the computer. Still have not yet had a problem.
