So, if the fix is to make sure you run iPlayer first before installing other software, can anyone explain why?
BootNeuter HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BBC iPlayer.
BSD Subsystem may cause an error when playing the video - "this movie could not be played" but a reset all settings WILL fix that. This error will effect all video on the iPhone though including YouTube and any other videos you synced on the iPhone.
I promise you all that its simply a question of changing the BBC iPlayer website settings using the method I mentioned a few posts back.
Don't be so quick to blame something that doesn't have any influence on website viewing!
iPhone US 8GB
FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
iPhone UK 16GB
FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

The first it to reset the settings in iPlayer. Then if that doesn't work do the restore thing where the first thing you do after restoring is to run the iPlayer and play something for a couple of seconds.
Either way, we now have closure !
Another good example of working together to find a solution to a common problem. Well done to everyone !
It would be better if someone understood the real reason it stopped working. In my case, it was also working on a iPlus-unlocked phone until recently so I don't believe it's anything specific to Pwnage tool. It seems to me that BBC changed something which stopped it working and, therefore, it could happen again. Doing a restore to fix it is a bit extreme as in that case you'd have to restore your phone every time.
It is true that the BBC changed something. They had to patch it in order to stop people exploiting a loophole which allowed you to download the content !
Running the iplayer straight after restoring seems to add or change something on the iphone which can't be overwritten by the BSD Subsystem or anything else.
It is definitely iplayer specific because there is another site (dailymotion.com) which is similar to the iplayer. It works even if the iplayer doesn't. Strange.
So if clearing the settings doesn't work, you have no option but to restore.
You only have to do this once though, not everytime.
I suppose its ok if you just recently restored and haven't added much yet, but a kick in the teeth if your iphone is already 'kitted' out.
We may not know why (yet), but at least we do know how to fix it....
restoring worked for me!!
I'll give it a try then. It doesn't bother me so much to do the restore as I'm always messing with my phone. However, the girlfriend invests a lot of time making her phone pretty and won't relish having to do it all again. And again, and again.
Restored both phones (Pwnage) and loaded iPlayer before installing anything with Installer. iPlayer now works fine on both phones.
Someone should add this to the Pwnage FAQ if it's not already been done.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to a solution.
