FakeLocation is a cool tweak which will take the fake GPS Location whatever you chose. The reason why you would do this because of the black-out restrictions in the MLB or NBA apps and other. Suppose want to watch baseball games at work, but they’re blacked out since the app looks at the GPS and sees that you are in the blackout zone. This will allow you to bypass blackout restrictions for any sport app.

It opens Google Maps and allows you to fake a location for a specific app. Now we can watch sports that we want to no matter what state you’re in!

I tried testing with Camera GPS app, I’ve set the Fake Location, but Camera GPS shows that I’m using Fake Location :P.

FakeLocation is available on cydia under modmyi repo, comes with 10 day trial period,after that you’ve to pay 2.79EUR

I installed the app, but the map shows up all blue and I cannot see where I am moving the pointer to select the fake location. Any ideas?

Sounds awesome — and the iPhone needs something like this!

However, this doesn’t actually work. Tried it with several apps and it didn’t work with any of them. :(

Ditto. The app actually tells other apps that you are located elsewhere … that part works. But if the apps is looking for a feed from the GPS and wants information from it actively (like foursquare or waze for example) it will not work like you want.
