Skype 1.0.2 for iPhone Update Issues Jailbreak Warning

Posted by · 35037 views · Translate

Skype for iPhone has been updated to version 1.0.2 and now warns that jailbroken phones are not supported.

iClarified reader Francois reports that "upon launching the new app, there is warning saying: "This version of Skype is only supported on unmodified iPhone OS 2.2. Quick tests on my jailbroken ipHone 2G showed me it still works anyway..." You can find a screenshot of the warning below.

It is likely that Skype has included this warning due to the many incompatibilities with jailbroken applications that do not use MobileSubstrate. You can find more information on how to correct these problems and why they happen here

Whats New in This Version:
- Improved support for calling phone numbers that don't have a country code
- Improved error handling when making calls to landlines and mobiles, which previously may have failed if you had a monthly subscription
- Resolved a problem with new account creation, which caused customers to be redirected to an incorrect web page, when making a purchase
- Fixed a problem, which caused the application to crash, when tapping a contact image (avatar) within a chat.

Skype 1.0.2 for iPhone can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store.

True. First execution only, then the message is away. So they can detect the phone is jalbroken? What other app can do that? That\'s a big security concern to me now...

After the update my jailbroken iPhone 2G is working 100%. Skype to skype, call to landlines/mobiles and chats.

It does work on my Jailbroken iPod touch. But, I am in an endless loop. If I try and get to the main screen, it opens up music. Cant reboot either. Be cautious.

So far I have no pronlems with it, it works, but... as sjprice have said there may be problems with some phones. Update all applications installed via Cydia, Icy or Installer to their latest versions and Skype may work just fine...
