The version 2.1.2 of ProTube can turn on/off the license verification from their server side.

So the easiest bypass is to turn on "Airplane Mode" before you start ProTube (disconnect from the Internet).

After it started, wait a bit, then you can turn the "Airplane Mode" off. Use the app as you like

Hope this helps

It's the same developer mate as protube and protube hd, Jonas gessner he must be moving away from cydia and into apples world, version number are different

@hotsjf

I find out better and more user-friend way.

Just have to install FirewalliP and at first run Protube will ask to connect to j.gessner server.

click on DENY always and then alllow another option.

 

You`ll have fully working app.

And you have to do it once...:)

Nice method, but I think that installing firewallip just for this purpose will eat the limited amount of RAM that our iphones have
I guess that There is another way
Any ideas??
Maybe a flex mod??

@hijacked
I`m using FirewalliP daily... for almost every app i have personalized settings... so for me it`s fastest method.

You`re right that using flex2 is possible

Just have to disable connecting with j.gessner server.

Be careful as in the deb he created a way to detect if it's a pirate and fucked with the hosts file on your device, but this was a julio verne crack and very basic (block ip)

@lollolo

Yeah.

As @r3tribut10n told you can only add server to hosts file. It should fix it.

yeah, the app will check your host too

so 'airplane mode' is the only way works (without modifying the binary)
