iPhone OS 2.2 und die Rechtschreibkorrektur

Man glaubt es kaum, aber mit dem heute erschienenen Update auf Version 2.2 des iPhone OS hat Apple nicht nur die Möglichkeit eingebaut die Rechtschreibkorrektur abzuschalten, nein, sie wurde sogar anscheinend komplett überarbeitet!

Und siehe da: Es funktioniert! Ich kann endlich Texte schreiben in denen Worte wie "Freund" vorkommen und muss nicht einen bescheuerten Vorschlag wie "Freünd" ablehnen.

Toll ist auch das nun meine Mails wieder empfangen werden auch wenn das Gerät im Standby ist....

"Danke" Apple ;-)

Using the iPhone configuration utility for troubleshooting

Apple released it's iPhone Configuration Utility 1.0.1 last week.

Although it isn't designed directly for the end-user it comes quite handy when you have to troubleshoot your iPhone.

Essentially it provides two functions that are very useful for this purpose:

1. You can uninstall applications on your phone directly from your computer, even when the iPhone doesn't boot up to springboard. Sometimes a 3rd party app causes errors that prevent your phone from booting. Removing it solves the problem most of the time.

2. It gives you an easy access to the iPhone's console log, showing application errors, general errors and a crap-load of other diagnostic stuff like failed network login attempts, mail download problems... You name it.

The tool is available as an OSX ONLY download here.

Updating an unlocked iPhone 1G to 2.1

I tried this today with an "old" iPhone 1G running a jailbroken and unlocked 2.0.2 software:

1. Made a backup in iTunes

2. Uninstalled all "unofficial 3rd Party apps"

3. Restarted the iPhone

4. Updated it directly from iTunes

5. Voila, everything worked fine.

Sure, you're losing the jailbreak, BUT the phone still stays unlocked and activated.


DevTeam did it again, here's the torrent for the updated Quickpwn-application:


ITunes: Error 5002 after update to iTunes 8.0 FIXED

Ohh come on! Not again...

After an upgrade to iTunes 8.0 I cannot update my apps anymore. All I get is "unknown error 5002".

To save you some time, these fixes DON'T work:

- Repair Permissions
- Signing in and out of your account
- Changing the settings from "One-Click-Shopping" to "Use Cart" and back again or vice-versa
- Reinstalling iTunes

I keep you posted about a fix. Subscribe to my RSS-Feed for latest updates.

Update: Found the error.

Seems that I had a bad app in my library (TapTap Revenge). If you scroll through your library, have a look for an App that only shows a generic icon. Delete this app and everything should be back to normal. You can redownload it later from the appstore at no charge.
