iPod Touch 2.1 problems

September 10, 2008 5 comments

I tried updating my iPod Touch to the latest 2.1 firmware this morning, downloaded through iTunes 8. The install process completed without a hitch, but my problems started when iTunes offered to restore the backup it made before upgrading. Once the restore was complete the iPod would restart and hang at the apple logo showing a frozen progress indicator.

After 10 minutes I tried again, but the result was the same. The iPod locks up when restoring the backup, so there must be something in the backup that conflicts with the latest firmware.The upshot of this is that the only way I have found to get the 2.1 firmware working is to setup the iPod as a new device without restoring a backup, and let iTunes sync everything. That’s running at the moment so I will post some screenshots of the new genius feature when it’s done, then decide to stick with 2.1 and wait for a jailbreak, or drop back to a jailbroken 2.0.2.

Pwnage and QuickPwn updated

August 26, 2008 Leave a comment

Very late last night came the news that the iPhone dev Team has updated both the Macintosh PwnageTool and the Windows QuickPwn. Both tools will jailbreak the latest iPhone/iPod vesion 2.0.2 firmware. PwnageTool 2.0.3 for the Mac is reported as having some problems with the iPod Touch so the Dev Team are recommending you hold off a little longer and wait for the next version due soon. Windows QuickPwn is updated to beta 150 offering some bug fixes.

There’s a comment on the blog recommending that QuickPwn isn’t run through Macintosh virtualisation software such as parallels and VMware. I had wondered if this was an option while rebooting into Windows to use QuickPwn, so there’s the answer.

The iPhone Dev Team today released an update to their beta QuickPwn tool complete with GUI by poorlad. It’s now compatible with iPhone and iPod 2.0.2 firmware, so for those brave enough to try beta software and running Windows it’s great. This is a bit of a turnaround to previous tools the Dev Team have released which always seemed to see Mac versions first. Fortunately I have a hard drive with Windows installed in my hackintosh for occasions such as this. Read more…

iPhone and iPod firmware 2.0.2 released

August 18, 2008 Leave a comment

Available now through iTunes is version 2.0.2 firmware for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Just like the 2.0.1 update this one lists the changes as ‘bug fixes’, with no indication of what bugs are fixed. The iPod Touch update is another hefty download at 246.3Mb, and as usual the advice is to wait until PwnageTool has been updated to work with the new version, or loose your jailbroken access.

UPDATE Infinite Loop is reporting an improvement in 3G signal strength and call quality after the 2.0.2 update.

PwnageTool 2.0.2 released with Installer 4 beta

Version 2.0.2 with support for firmware 2.0.1 is now out, and the iPhone Dev Team has a couple of other sources on their blog to help the struggling upgrade servers. I’ve updated my iPod Touch using PwnageTool 2.0.2 and everything appears to be working well. Cydia and Installer are both installed by default, which seems to me like a strange idea. No disrespect to the people writing these apps, but what’s the difference? Do we really need two apps for installing software?

Here’s a gallery of screenshots from PwnageTool 2.0.2
