Ios – How to detect that an iOS app is running on a jailbroken phone


If I want my app to behave differently on a jailbroken iPhone, how would I go about determining this?

Best Solution

It depends what you mean by jailbreak. In the simple case, you should be able to see if Cydia is installed and go by that - something like

NSString *filePath = @"/Applications/";
if ([[NSFileManager defaultManager] fileExistsAtPath:filePath])
   // do something useful

For hacked kernels, it's a little (lot) more involved.
