iOS OTA updates don't work if you're Jailbroken

iOS OTA updates don't work if you're Jailbroken

If you're Jailbroken and trying to get iOS 5 beta 4 via over-the-air (OTA) update, you just might be out of luck according to iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNeard:

The 5.0b4 OTA update won't work on JB devices due to an explicit check of /Applications..almost like a present from Apple

they check to make sure /Applications is a real directory, which it isn't in a stashed jailbreak (not sure how unionfs would act)

Never underestimate the resourcefulness of the Jailbreak community, but if you want to try OTA now you'll likely have to restore to iOS 5 beta stock before proceeding.

iOS 5 beta 4 is an OTA update... if you can connect

It looks like the just-released iOS 5 beta 4 is an OTA update, with Apple pushing the bit-differential/delta file over the air, over 3G... if you can connect. Lots of people can't, according to Twitter, and are getting "Try Again" errors. When it does work, however, it seems to work well.

Also, many of you are telling us you're having no luck updating via iTunes or Xcode, with "this device isn't eligible" errors cause all manner of frustration.

If you get your update on using either method, let us know!

Verizon Q2 2011 results: 2.3 million iPhones activated

Verizon Q2 2011 results: 2.3 million iPhones activated

Verizon has now joined Apple and AT&T in reporting their quarterly earnings, and the big news for us is that they activated 2.3 million iPhone 4 devices. That's up from last quarter, but perhaps not as many as expected.

In the follow up, new Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam acted shocked -- shocked we tell you -- that there was no iPhone 5 this summer. He, like the rest of us, expect it this fall. Given Verizon only launched iPhone 4 in February, over a half-a-year later than AT&T, it's hard to believe they were completely out of the loop on Apple's roadmap this time around.

T-Mobile USA targeting unlocked iPhone, iPad owners

Sure, AT&T might be trying to buy T-Mobile US, and sure, T-Mobile got into the microSIM game before AT&T and Apple made them famous, but it looks like now T-Mo is actually going after iPhone and iPad owners before the former, using the latter.

The graphics in SplitApple are amazing and are enough to get me hooked to this game. The games runs smoothly and has fun gameplay. This is also a great game to show off gaming on your iPhone or iPad because anyone can pick it up and intuitively try it out.

Sid Meier’s Pirates! now available for the iPad, well shiver me timbers!

Sid Meier’s Pirates! has just been released for the iPad and it is one of the games from that past that should bring a smile to the face of anyone over 30. Originally released in 1987, this was the first game to feature Sid Meier’s name in its title to attract fans of Sid’s other games; which were mostly flight simulators at that time. The iPad version released today has updated graphics but still has the great game play of the original.

Calvetica Calendar for iPhone and iPad receives huge update

Calvetica Calendar by Mysterious Trousers has received a big update with a new interface, gestures, notifications, and tasks.

We’ve sweated the details and carefully crafted an experience that is tuned to the way people really use calendars. We've included all the features that really matter to you.

ALL NEW INTERFACE

  • We restarted from scratch. This is the new Calvetica.
  • Universal app. Will run natively on iPod, iPhone and iPad.
  • Month and day layout on one screen.
  • Beautiful portrait week agenda view.
  • Tap on the time by an event to quickly edit when it starts or ends.
  • New quick add screen that lets you type event start times with a keypad.
  • Tap on the month title to jump to any date, even years away, very quickly.
  • Customize the event details screen. Show/hide, reorder all the event details so it shows only what you want to see and in the order you want to see it.
  • Easily show/hide calendars.
  • Icons by event titles to quickly see if it has notes, a location, attendees or if it repeats.

POWERFUL GESTURES

  • Powerful, natural and intuitive gestures.
  • Long press on the plus button to quickly set a generic reminder that acts like an alarm.
  • Flick the month up and out of the way to give you more space to view your day.

NOTIFICATIONS

  • Enable custom alerts to receive a notification from Calvetica when alarms go off that have a “snooze” button on them.
  • Custom alarm sounds that are longer and louder than the default calendar apps sound.
  • Alarm picker lets you choose many multiple alarms quickly. It also shows your complex alarms set in other applications.
  • Multiple default alarms.
  • Alarms specifically for all day events that make sense (i.e. remind me 6pm the day before).

TASKS

  • Switch between event and task mode to manage both.
  • Organized into custom color coded groups.
  • Set title, priority and notes.
  • Free automatic cloud backup.
  • Free automatic cloud syncing between devices running Calvetica.
  • Open and easy to use tasks API for developers.

I haven't had a chance to check out Calvetica Calendar, but it comes highly recommended by many of our readers. I do like the interface for the month view on the iPad - the two panel design looks fabulous.

Calvetica Calendar is available on the iPhone and iPad for $1.99. Screenshots after the break.
