Apple releases iTunes 9.2.1


@Mitchell....Jailbreaking is cool, cracking apps, thats just for the scumbags who can't afford 99 cents, you're a cheap ass

Still wont let me update.. says 9.2 is the current version. Maybe not released in Canada yet?

LOL at everyone attacking Mitchell for cracked apps. Chill out, who cares, you make it seem like he's taking money out of your pockets. Maybe he's like me and tries the cracked apps for a while then eventually buys them when you find out they're actually worth the purchase.

Maybe it's just me, but the apps section on iTunes now has a "genre" tab? Either it's new or I am completely oblivious to my surroundings. No cracked apps here. LMAO!

Jailbreaking is cool for tethering Internet and Mitchell is not a scumbag. The executive working at AT&T not doing anything about dropped calls or coverage is a scumbag.

Couldn't agree more Carolinamic. I paid $300 for this phone, not including the $2000.00 + I'll b paying AT&T over 2 years. It's mine, I'll do with it what I please.

I think we need a rundown on what jailbreakimg is and why it's not illegal. What is illegal is stealing apps no matter what your intentions are. Jailbreaking is not illegal.
Stealing apps are.
Why is that so hard to understand?!

Jailbreaking may not be illegal(no one said it was) what was said is that by jailbreaking you are in direct violation of your usage agreement... Additionally pirating music like pirating apps is illegal, so all of you individuals throwing stones about downloading a cracked app hopefully never downloaded music illegally because that makes you a hypocrite and if theres one thing this world can't suffer, it's a hypocrite fanboy

@ Rhit - FYI, you can also say JFGI which is much more satisfying.
@most of the others- w/ iOS4, I have very little reason to jailbreak but when it is available, I might for two reasons. One, themes, there is an awesome Star Trek LCARS theme(if you have to ask...). Two, scr$$ the giant At-At who is very greedy and doesn't improve it's network w/all the $. Done so by tethering. Save me $130 when I get an iPad, though I'll probably wait for G2. Just my $.02

Nothing wrong with JBing in and of it's self. Now stealing apps and even admitting it on TIPB? Just shamefull. :lowers head and shakes:

Cry me a river. Most of you are hypocrite just to be cool with the website forum. Jailbreakng for the wrong reason? Your "right" reason is wrong and it's against the term of use/services in wich you agreed to accept. Not following that agreement can can cause the other party to take legal actions against u. So u say uv never used limewire? Sure... Shame on cracked apps? Stop and think, developers of cydia store are stealing the 50%(or so) income that correspond to iPhones apps sales for each download. They steal too. Cracked aps are as unrespectfull as jailbreaking. Even that some do both, because some won't buy something u can't return/replace or use longer than a week. Why, because u CAN. Ohh and poor issues...

I have a jailbroken 3GS and I did download for free Myvtones cracked !! I liked ! And two weeks later I whent and paid $10 for the legit app.

@Jeff There is a workaround to get the latest version of orblive working with iOS4. It involved editing an .XML on your PC. You can search the orblive forums for more info.

@ Luis most of the apps in cydia are not in the app store so how are they stealing money from the ap store again. Plus over the next 2 years AT&T will get over $4000.00 from me. So like I said b4, the phone is mine.

Everyone one sitting here bashing @Mitchell really need to grow up. As already stated over and over again everyone has there reason for jailbreaking, I personally don't like the hold that Apple has over the Iphone when the device can do so much more and the refuse to allow it, therefore i jailbreak to unleash all these capabilities, but some also do it for the cracked apps, but thats there choice not mine or yours, the fact that people are wasting there time here complaining about his comment when this in fact is suppose to be about the new iTunes update makes me laugh. Also some food for thought, Whats the difference in buying the apps or getting the cracked apps when some people have been purchasing the apps and then passing out the user name and password to some friends with iPhones and iPod Touches and having the re download all the apps that were originally purchased but now 4 to 5 people are benefiting from that one purchase?

I don't know if its just me but since i updated the iTunes and i open any of the jailbreak software on my computer, iTunes automatically shuts down. lol has any one else experience this at all? I was moving folders around and cleaning up my desktop and i accidentally click on it and itunes shut down right away, i tried 3 more times and it kept shutting down lol.

Did they fix the "now playing"/"selected item" issue of not locking anymore? I hate that that feature has been changed in 9.2.

Whether or not you think Jailbreaking is illegal or not, its not going to change the fact that people are going to do it. Cracked apps the same way.
Anon said it best: "Additionally pirating music like pirating apps is illegal, so all of you individuals throwing stones about downloading a cracked app hopefully never downloaded music illegally because that makes you a hypocrite and if theres one thing this world can’t suffer, it’s a hypocrite fanboy"
If you have EVER downloaded a song illegally (Limewire, frostwire, torrents, etc.), please hush yourself over the matter. Your only embarrassing yourself by making it alright in your mind to 'steal' music while bashing those who 'steal' and 'try-before-you-buy' the apps. I, personally am a 'Try-before-you-buy' person. If I like the app, I support the developer that made it buy paying him $x.xx amount of money. Sometimes even DONATE.

Hello; great publish for me. Your publish has very good quality. LVD need to has very good posts like yours at my website. How don’t you arrive around these posts?

A lot of thanks for your own work on this blog. My daughter loves carrying out internet research and it's really simple to grasp why. My spouse and i hear all about the compelling tactic you provide helpful things via this blog and therefore invigorate response from other individuals about this subject matter then my daughter has been becoming educated a whole lot. Take pleasure in the remaining portion of the new year. You're conducting a brilliant job.

I do consider all of the concepts you've introduced on your post. They're really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for newbies. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
