DirecTV does not like people who jailbreak their devices and locks you out of their app completely if your device is jailbroken.
When you first open the DirecTV app (version 2.3.0) you are presented with the above error message: This app is not supported on jailbroken devices. Please connect to Apple iTunes to update or restore your device.
Luckily Brandon has come to the rescue and created a patch so you can enjoy the new Directv app that supports live streaming. To patch your app you must have our Cydia repository installed.
- Open up Cydia and click on Manage at the bottom.
- Then Click Sources.
- Click Edit in the top right and then press Add in the top left.
- type http://beta.leimobile.com/repo/ and the press Add Source.
- Browse the LEiMobile repo and install dtvrunner.
- Once installed reboot and your Directv app will function normally.
