I have an app for Al Jazeera sports. I have a subscription with them on the app, and now I'm going to the USA to study and I need to watch the games on my iPad since I'll have no TV access when the games are played. Is there a tweak that I can do through iFile to trick the app to think that I am in the Middle East? It works if I change the IP address to a Saudi web proxy, but its not reliable, not always online, and becomes slower. If you want to test the application, you'll need to get it from a middle eastern Apple Store.

If the Al Jazeera apps determines your location based on your IP address (which seems to be the case), the only way to circumvent this check is by using a proxy or VPN connection with an IP address in an allowed range.
