As speculated on the last episode 1.1.2 - did hit the Apple Servers today.

Here is a good article on Endgadget that gets into the details.

But a quick summary is this - Do not Update to 1.1.2 if you have any desire for native apps as it does fix the Tiff exploit that is needed for jailbreakme to work.

Even if you have no intentions of jailbreaking your iPhone, I would still recommend waiting a week of two before updating.

Let me know your experiences with 1.1.2 if you did actually update it.

Of course these things happen as soon as I post a new show.  There is a new very easy way to Jailbreak your 1.1.1 iPhone to allow for 3rd party aps and you do it from your iPhone. 

Here are two links to great articles on this


Amazingly not only does this Jailbreak method unlock your phone from the Tiff Exploit it also patches that exploit.  Kind of like a burglar breaking into your house using a credit card to jimmy open the lock and then once inside installing a dead bolt to keep anyone else from doing that.

Simply send your 1.1.1 iphone to this URL

When you get there read the instruction and scroll to the bottom, then tap "Install AppSnapp"

If you are taken to the home screen then you are golden.  Your iPhone should then restart on its own (don't touch the screen until you see the slider appear)  Then slide to unlock and on your home screen you shoud see the installer.  And from that point on you can enjoy the end of my shows where we talk about all the cool 3rd party native apps on the iPhone.

So far I have heard from a few people that have tried this and they all have positive feedback - Let us know your experience in the comments.

UPDATE: 10-31-07 12:52 AM

Chris from NY recommended I add the following:

After you have succesfully added AppSnap:

1. Open Installer
2. Go to “Sources�? and install the “Community Sources�? package.
3. Next you’ll want to install the BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH, also under “System.�?
4. Finally, you’ll need an application launcher. There’s XLaunch under “System�? and others. Note that some of these utilities require an iPhone and won’t work on an iPod Touch.
5. Also,  Install 'SummerBoard New'  not Old.  So new Native App installers have the basics.

(Thanks Chris)

UPDATE: 11-01-07 5:07 PM

There have been some questions about the SSH install.  The main reason to use it is if you want to access your iPhone from your computer via Wifi.  There are two known issues with SSH on the iPhone - one is security as it defaults all iPhones to the same password.  The other is Battery life - it does drain down your battery when active - which is the default state.  To get arround both you can install SERVICES (not switches) so you can manually turn SSH on and off.  Or you could just not install SSH. 

(Again thanks to Chris for info on this)

Cali Lewis was kind enough to invite me on the latest episode of to talk about Apple and the "will they brick the iphone update" that is coming.

Here is a link to the video.

Remember - wait two weeks before you upgrade the firmware of the iPhone if you have used App Tapp to install 3rd party Apps, or you have unlocked the SIM to work on another carrier.  Better to be safe than sorry.

TODAY in iPhone - Episode 34
Time to get Native on your App!

Dave in California, sounds off - Apple screws their best customers- US! Speaks for the masses and swears we won't buy a first gen product again. Ever. No really... then predicts Apple rebate might keep us happy.

Jimmy crack head wins the Vmoda headset.
Jawbone winter announced - winner has one week to claim prize.

Episode 33 feedback -
Greg says Rob's lost interest in iPhone (Rob disputes)
Dave in southern Cal tastes sour grapes

Rob announces- if you bought a phone in the two weeks before the price break - $200 rebate is yours!

iPhone update coming soon, Rob predicts - firmware that date should support iTunes  mobile, composite video out ( Matching iPod Touch) late September..
Rod daydreams of "copy" "paste" feature

You heard it here first - iTunes  mobile will not to support podcast/subscriptions ( one reason we still need our Macs. Our iPhones  are too young to take over the World)

Steve (iPhone newbie) wants in-ear headphones with clicker and to play .mp3 from his e-mail. Rob promises to look for an app - hasn't found one yet.

Rivet iPhone Headset - Two Thumbs up (an understatement) no contest on this one folks- Rob's actually keeping this one!! Wow! Very comfy, no urinal drop woes,  blocks out background noise, switch works well.

Convert Ringtones: instructions available for 7.4 iTunes version ONLY (don't upgrade to 7.4.1 until after you listen to this!) Engadget's work around. Rob  walks you through it step by step. How to convert .mp3 to .aac to .m4a to .m4r

Jason - UK rumor launch date 15 December? Rob tries to dispel the myths - don't believe what you hear. Wait for the big Apple to tell all.

Tmobile $20 unlimited date plan for unlocked iPhone?

Jimmy in Maine e-mails Rob The article - Why Apple got it right (and what they got wrong going with AT&T)

Seven out of eight iPhones have been sold from Apple store. (Tell me again why Apple went with AT&T on this one?)

App Tapp - From Null River gets two thumbs way up - allows you to install  apps and play in airplane mode.. the first upload should be Community sources

Native apps
Doom= nothing like the real thing
Zune2= cute, not practical
iPong= (ditto)
Lights Out= Rob's on level 10- it must be good
Mobile Twitterific= work's great
Sketches= not practical, unless your 17 mo. old is cranky
Vnotes= finally! a voice recording app for your iPhone!
Send Song= email out songs to others (when can we listen to them from our Phones?)
Minesweep= not like the original... a bit too easy?
iLight= turns iPhone into the most expensive flashlight in America
iBrate= Rob turns red over possible female reviews? references HP broomsticks..

TODAY in iPhone -Episode 33
What would you do with an extra 200 dollars?

Rob gives us his speculations on...
Price drop on iPhone makes 1st gen. users swear. 8GB from $599 (69 days ago) to $399 now?! What the *#&&%??

Listener feed back? not this G rated show!

16g iPhone is out there... speculation as to when will it come out..

iPod Touch - the latest iPod is practically carbon copy of iPhone (without the Mail and Maps apps) without the phone and camera bits

iPhone unlocked- what does it cost you to carry it over to a different carrier (T*Mobile or other GSM network)?

iFuntastic v3.0.3

Today In iPhone: Episode  32 - Feedback and User Centric Interview

Soundbyte from Danny (Raleigh) 7th in line on iPhone Day

Rob forewarns his Out-tro is an interview with Gavin (regarding the study circulating online about texting), and plugs his recent guest appearance on the Typical Mac User Podcast (with Victor).

Listener Feedback:
*John (Wisconsin) waited for longer line to form on iPhone Day?
*Kevin ( disputes Rob's stance (from last episode) on not purchasing anything on iPhone; as does *Ken (NJ); as does Jake (NYC) sites HTTPS; as does James who sites SSL 

iPhone tip of the week:
*John (Santa Claira) hacks the Belkin Power adapter to work with iPhone.
*Joe (minus Ben from Eugene, OR) gives us a new way to ignore calls and points out that if you utilize the dock you can plug in any headphones you want without the stinkin' $10 adapter. (Note: I tried this while it was plugged into my iMac with semi-disastrous results and would definitely recommend using the dock alone, NOT plugged in to anything else!)
*John (Rochester) having problems with his WiFi home connection (using Belkin router) – update fixed it lickety split!

Q and A:
*Kevin ( wants the skinny on sports pages for scores/ stats on games (the lite version please). Rob delivers iPhone Sports Scores page on silver platter. (More to come on next show)

* Alvin (Virginia) loves his Plantronics 640 Bluetooth headset, says comfortable with glasses on!
* Randy ( driving in his Prius (sadly) notes that hands free audio not currently possible in his car. Uses Apple earbuds frequently and shares how to wake iPhone from sleep
* M(something something?) Paul(?) from Pittsburgh asks about iFuntastic, do you lose data on phone? Is there a way to backup notes? Rob answers no reset needed for first download, and promises iFuntastic version 3 coming out soon!
*Tommy (LA) having probs with phone after doing the update.
*Former Windows user says that he used screen protector on Windows mobile phone and had problems with his phone. Rob puts out a call: if you are having screen issues with your iPhone, please call in and give your specific details: what case are you using, are you using a screen protector (and which one) and what is your screen number (5 or 7)?

iFuntastic – Version 3 coming out soon! Drag and drop games, ringtones, more!

JawBone Bluetooth Headset giveaway in a little over a week!

Gavin (of the User Centric Study) does an interview with Rob (warning- this Out-tro is actually a show in itself- 30 min long)

Today In iPhone: Episode  31- I am feeling Blue -- tooth that is

Soundbyte from Ben and Joe (not to be confused with the ice cream hippies) from Eugene, OR on iPhone Day

FACT or FICTION? Follow up to the web rumors that man had his thumbs surgically altered for iPhone- prove to be false (whew- I (stacey)  was worried it would become a trend)

iPhone Tips:
*Alan (Newport) tells us how to lighten our wallets without spending a dime by scanning membership cards into iPhone
*Ken (Maine) gives activation tips for rural listeners just out of Edge netwark range
*Chris warns that the screen dot issue is random and not specific to a verision 5 or 7.

Q and A:

*When will next patch be released? Why Rob is holding out for stereo blue tooth headset, and his guess as to firmware release dates.
*David (Birmingham) questions hands free streaming. Rob notes the Prius already streams (wants listener feedback) and Scoscehe has a universal Bluetooth receiver for stereo. Will iPhone recognize these devices?
*Are iPhone purchases through Safari safe? Rob breaks it down by kilometers and gives a warning
*Is there danger in using non iPhone specific accessories in a car? Rob answers – danger, what danger? And dishes about Griffin FM transmitter and his Bose dock.
*Chris in CANADA is dying for release date info. Rumor is Q4, but you could blindfold yourself, spin around and throw a dart at the calendar and come up with a better guess. Rob doesn't buy Q4.
* Ray in Philly heard about a 16 G iPhone ? Rob believes it's possible for the European crowd as early as November!
*Listener wants ringtones through iTunes. Rob directs to Hack The iPhone for Custom Ringtones
*Jody (Atlanta) wants to buy second gen iPhone- when's it coming out? Rob wagers a vasectomy on release date. Warns, stop chasing the white rabbit.

*AddPhone - Iphone Application Search Engine up to 447 apps and counting!
*MockDock – fake iPhone doc controls for your favorite apps

Listener Feedback:
*Listeners call using Jawbone
*Alan rips apart two earphones (literally)
*More Jawbone soundbytes from various listeners –
*Joe (Eugene, OR) thrilled to be first to get iPhone at his local store
*Ed (CA) gets lucky, his touch sensors malfunctioned and AT&T game him new phone. Moral: Apple backs it's products.
*Listeners report screen issues, dead spots
*Mark (NJ) corrects Rob, lithium ion vs lithium ion polymer battery
*Guy gets crapy job to buy a Mac (take another drink from the well my friend). Rob shares his crapy job story, wants yours too (no vulgarity please).
*youngest known lister, Mitch (13), saving for an iPhone gets pat on the back from Rob

Product Review & new contest:
*Rob dishes about the Jawbone's audio quality, background noise levels, comfort and even packaging.

*Speaking of contests… xxx xxxxx is the vModa headset winner and has one week to claim his coveted prize!

Today In iPhone: Episode 29
Never blame on Malice what can easily be blamed on incompetence –

Soundbyte from JoJo (Miami) on iPhone Day

Chuck Hudson disputes rumors that iPhone My eBay is illegitimate. Rob apologizes for his candid comment to a listener (and explains what he meant), praises the site.

iPhone tip of the week:
*Mike explains how to check mins without connecting to the 'net.

Q and A:
*Edward (Virginia) asks about iFuntastic. Rob exhorts the ease of use to changing ringtones, moving buttons. (Warning crops up later in show)
*Sebastian follows up his games Q (previous episode) with profit concerns for Apple. Rob answers- no worries, and takes off his hat to the (sweet) Bejeweled creator, Arkadiusz.
*Danny (Miami) waited in line 26 hours for his prize possession, and wonders why Safari is cheating on him and crashing. Rob nudges him to update the phone, as the first iPhone update (1.0.1) fixes Safari bugs and stability issues. Rob warns, however, you will loose unsynced elements from iFuntastic (users beware).
*Adam wonders why can't he view his video podcasts. Rob explains how to get the full Monty (audio and video at the same time! Oh my)

*Tricia (windy NYC) happy with Apple's Bluetooth headset. Rob questions differences between it and Jawbone (invites listener feedback)
*Jorge (Miami) loves his iPhone
*Gina (Key West) checks in on iPhone Day while being checked out by a police patrolman.

12th icon on iPhone is YouTube UPDATED: Here is a slightly modified pic from the Apple site with the 12th icon showing that it is YouTube.   I modified it per comments here and from emails (Thanks Zach) - that it looks like you could add in 4 more apps.  I cut and pasted and yes you can add in 4 more apps.  I wonder what they will be?

If you want to see past push messages - there is now a list of past push messages in the Tii App.  When you open the Tii App tap on "Tii" in the lower left.  You should then be taken to the list of Episodes.  In the upper right - tap on the "!" It will then turn Yellow and at the top of the screen it will say "All Alerts".  You will now see the list of past push messages.  


If you are not getting Push messages on the Tii App please check the following.


A - See if push is showing as installed

1. Open the Tii App

2. Tap "Extras" in the upper right

3. At the bottom Tap "Upgrade to Premium"

4. At this point it should say "Installed" next to "Premium Upgrade".  If it says "Installed" go to Step B below.

5. If it is showing a Price - then Tap on the Price to re-purchase.  Make sure you are using the same iTunes account you originally used to purchase the upgrade and the App.  Please note you will NOT be charged again for re-purchasing the upgrade if you use the same iTunes account.

6. After you put in your password it will then say you have already purchased this do you want to download it again for free.  Tap "Yes"  

That should be it. Tap Done - then go back to confirm it now shows as "Installed"




B. See if Notifications are turned on.  

1. If step A showed Push as being installed it is possible it is not turned on.  

2. Leave the Tii app and go to the "Settings" App.  The one from Apple.

3. The third item on the first screen in the Settings app is "Notifications" tap on it.

4. Find the Tii app in the list.  Under Tii it should say "Alerts, Sounds" 

5. If it says "Off" tap on Tii to turn on either or both Alerts and Sounds.  

Note - If you don't want to hear a push come in at 3 or 4 AM you can turn just "Sounds" off.  Please note I have listeners in every time zone in the world - So every time I send out a push it is around 3 or 4 AM somewhere.  Sorry.  




C - Quick Re-install of Tii App.

If you are still not getting push messages you can do a quick re-install of the Tii App by doing the following:

1. On your iOS device locate the Tii icon and tap and hold.

2. Once it starts to wiggle - Tap the X to delete.

3. Sync your iOS device with your computer

4. In iTunes - select your iOS device and go to the Apps page and re-select the Tii App and click "Apply"

5. Follow the steps in A and B above. 




D - Full Delete and Re-Download and Re-Install 

In some very very rare cases if all the above is not working it may be necessary to completely delete out the Tii App and re-download and re-install.  Please follow these steps exactly in the order they are listed. 

1. Delete the Tii App from your iOS device.

2. On your computer in iTunes in the Library section for Apps - find and delete the Tii App.

3. Connect your iOS device to your Computer and Sync.

4. In the iTunes store re-purchase the Tii App - Note as long as you use the same iTunes account that you originally purchased the Tii App with you will NOT be charged again.

5. Sync your iOS Device again - this should re-install the Tii App on your iOS device.  

6. Follow the Steps in A and B above.  


Note - You do need to have purchased the Tii App and the Push notifications - using the same iTunes Account to get Push Notifications working.   If you downloaded the Tii App using Instal0us - you will not be able to get Push notifications to work. (That is a statement not a challenge)


As always - Thanks for supporting the show.

Notes in iPhone .

I received the following email from Joe Bella and asked him if I could post it.

I don't know if this is something that everyone else has noticed already - it may not mean anything, but I noticed that the icon for "Notes" in the upcoming Leopard mail is pretty much identical to the "Notes" icon on the iphone. If they lead to the same functionality, that means that any notes you take can be kept on an IMAP server. The interesting thing to me here is that if this is true.. then I can take notes on my computer via the Mail program, and they will automatically be transmitted onto my phone without having to sync and vice versa. You could think of a thousand things that you could do with this kind of setup. For example, how about the ability to have a "common" notepad between different people. My wife and I could really use this. Notes that she takes on it during the day will just show up on my phone.  Along with Leopard, Apple is supposed to release all sorts of collaboration tools. For example, an iCal server that will allow a group of users to share calendars. It's not a far stretch to envision a notes collaboration.

Anyway - more random speculation.  I've enclosed a picture of the two things side by side.

Nice find Joe. I have not seen anyone else mention this yet.
I guess this means my wife could update the grocery list while I am at the grocery store. And I am sure she will find many other ways to take advantage of this.

Most Phallic Looking Cell Tower Ever
Question: What does this have to do with iPhones?

Answer: This is a picture I took of the Cell tower where I live that my iPhone will be connecting to.  I am still surprised this was approved by the city.  I guess it is supposed to look like a hay silo â�� being it is here in Kansas.  But obviously it looks a lot like something else.  I am sure the person that designed this is still laughing about it getting approved.

4th of July Weekend Sale = Free Shipping + $119 Gift Card which can be used for $149 Clamcase.  

I know you love your iPad - I love mine too.  But one of the biggest complaints on the iPad and iPad2 is that sometimes if you are doing a lot of typing a real physical keyboard is just needed.  Sure you can get the Apple Bluetooth keyboard - but taking that with you or remembering where you left it can be an issue.  Plus getting the iPad in the perfect position to watch a movie or type a document can also result in some less than ideal solutions or a sore neck. 

However, the folks at ClamCase have come up with the perfect solution. 

They have created an all-in-one keyboard case and stand for the iPad and iPad 2.  Why not check out this amazing product for yourself? It really is the perfect solution for bridging the gap between your iPad and laptop.
