MuscleNerd from the Dev-Team says that it is safe to update iTunes to iTunes 9 even if your iPhone or iPod Touch is jailbroke and/or unlocked. So, if you have a jailbroke/unlocked device… go ahead and updated iTunes.
However, do not update to firmware 3.1 via iTunes. We haven’t heard anything official on the 3.1 firmware update and how it affects jailbreaking and unlocking yet. We will keep an eye on the Dev-Team for more info. Read more
Apple’s events starts today at 10am Pacific, 12pm (noon) Central, & 1pm Eastern. I’d say for sure there will be a camera in the iPod touch, possible the Nano and updates to iTunes making it more “social”. There’s also been talk of the App Store approval process practically coming to a halt the last few days, so maybe there are some new apps coming, or new features to the App Store. (push notifications please!) I’ll be posting anything and everything I can find that effects the iPhone or iPod touch here

So, I can see that a lot of you are getting iTunes Gift cards for Christmas. Just some quick tips. They can be used for both apps and music, not just music. You can also redeem them right on your iPhone, not just in iTunes. In iTunes on your computer you just click “redeem” on the top right hand side of the iTunes Store. On your iPhone, open iTunes, not the App Store, and tap the last tab, “Downloads”. Then tap redeem in the top right corner. Just type in your code and tap redeem. Close iTunes, then open the App Store and close it. It should prompt you for your iTunes password. Once you enter it, it should start downloading.
This also works for free promo codes from developers. Also, remember that when you buy a song or application, all other iPhones on the same account can download them for free. This is a great way to share the cost of a game your brother or sister might also want. If you have any other questions on how this all works, please let me know! Read more
There’s lots of drama lately about applications being pulled from the App Store. There’s all kinds of ideas why some were pulled. Some were pulled, brought back, pulled, brought back, and pulled. Unlike PhoneSaber, which is rumored to come back with Star Wars official branding, NetShare will likely never come back unless AT&T changes some things. NetShare allows your iPhone to share it’s cellular data connection over WiFi. I decided to see what I could do about getting a refund. Here’s what I did: Read more
There have been a few websites reporting that there was a rumored beta testing program going to be released where developers could give you an app for free to test if you were some kind of reviewer or tester. I was kinda confused because I thought there was already something like this. Then I saw this article from TUAW explaining adhoc and that it was already available.
Here’s how it works. You give the developer your UDID (unique device identifier) and they can compile a zip file of their app with your ID. It will only run on your iPhone. To get your UDID, Erica Sadun made a sweet little app that when ran, opens an email with your UDID and ready to send to the developer, you just need to add their email address. Once the developer send you the app you can just drag it in to the applications section of your iTunes. Developers can do this to up to 100 iPhones. I’m not sure if this is per app or for all apps.

There is an update to version 7.7.1 of iTunes. To see the update, you can select Help in the iTunes menu bar and then Check for Updates. You will get a pop-up allowing you to download the 70.15 MB update which also includes QuickTime. According to the change log, the update, “includes fixes to improve stability and performance.” Hopefully we will see some faster sync time!
Updating iTunes will not affect your jailbreak or unlock.
BigBoss has written an article on a problem with the App Store/iTunes which also affects Cydia (and will probably also affect Installer 4.0). The problem has to do with installing applications. Have you had a time when you install an app and your iPhone just sits there…there is no icon and you have a spinning wheel next to your carrier icon on your status bar? This has happened to me once and Doug a few times. Though, it is always with App Store apps and never with apps installed via Cydia. Below is what BigBoss has to say about the bug.
One thing that has been driving me crazy since upgrading to firmware 2.0 is that it takes forever to sync my iPhone…like FOREVER. Well, zerologic published an article describing how to turn off the back-up process using your Mac. This is only an option for those of you who do not keep a lot of important info on your iPhone because it means that you will no longer have a back-up of anything on your iPhone. You would still be able to sync your iPhone with information from your computer, like a contact’s list or calendar. However, anything you have exclusively on your iPhone would not be backed-up.
Make sure you read all the info below before proceeding!
You are now able to upgrade to firmware 2.0 by simply going into iTunes and selecting the Check for Update option. Remember, upgrading to firmware 2.0 will mean your iPhone will no longer be jailbroke, fake activated or unlocked (there is no jailbreak option for firmware 2.0). If you do not want to upgrade to 2.0, just select Cancel if you get a pop-up telling you to upgrade.
We’ll write a longer update later about our morning but while we were at the Apple Store (for 2 hours) there seemed to be a problem with the local network. Employees were scrambling fix routers, airport express and find hard wire cables but then realized it was not a local issues, but a worldwide issues. Both Apple stores and cellular service providers were having issues. Eventually the Apple employees just told me to take it home and activate it.
I stopped by the AT&T store and they were having the same problems. They went to just selling iPhones without activating them and just making sure people were signing up for service. We stopped at a local coffee house/restaurant, Panara Bread, and activated Brooke’s iPhone after about 3 attempts. My iPhone was another story! At the time of writing this article, I was still getting the following error every time I connected my iPhone via USB to our laptop and iTunes:
Doug just restored his iPhone to the current 1.1.4 firmware using iTunes. He then tried to use the firmware he had created via WinPwn to jailbreak his iPhone. Well, he found out the hard way that the firmware you create using WinPwn no longer works with version 7.7 of iTunes. Meaning, you cannot restore and jailbreak your iPhone using WinPwn if you have upgraded your iTunes to 7.7…even firmware 1.1.4 and below. Doug had not upgraded to 2.0, it was just a normal jailbreak of 1.1.4…the kind we have done a million times. So it seems that iTunes 7.7 breaks the WinPwn jailbreak. If you have upgraded to iTunes 7.7 and need to down grade so that you can do restore your iPhone if needed…HERE is a link to iTunes 7.5.
Note: Updating to version 7.7 of iTunes will not break your current jailbreak. However, you will not be able to restore using WinPwn if you have version 7.7. The only reason to update to iTunes 7.7 is to get the App Store. If you do not need the App Store because you are not upgrading to the 2.0 firmware…there is no need to update to version 7.7 of iTunes.
So it seems some people are, or were, able to get into the app store from iTunes. If you go to Edit > Preferences > General Tab and check mark Applications you can add it to Library in iTunes. Then when Applications is highlighted there are two options in the bottom right corner, Check for Updates and Get More Applications.
