Apple Releases iTunes 8.2.  Avoid It. (For Now...)

Apple Releases iTunes 8.2. Avoid It. (For Now...)

Posted June 1, 2009 at 10:16pm by iClarified
Apple has released iTunes 8.2 for download; however, the iPhone Dev-Team recommends not installing it at this time.

iTunes 8.2 now supports iPhone or iPod touch with the iPhone 3.0 Software Update. iTunes 8.2 also includes many accessibility improvements and bug fixes.

For information on the security content of this update, please visit this website: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1222

MuscleNerd, an iPhone Dev-Team member writes, "Today’s iTunes 8.2 update changes the way your computer talks to the device. This affects things like QuickPwn and PwnageTool when they try to identify what’s connected. Also, ssh over usb breaks due to same reasons. Fixes are in the works but for now avoid 8.2. (These are probably *not* anti-jailbreak maneuvers, just Apple changing protocols that normally only Apple cares about.)"

just keep us updated, bc i prob am going to want to either upgrade to the new phone, and/or sell my 3g online so i might have to unlock it still.

Now you tell me! I've already updated to 8.2. I used pwnage to take my 2g/8gig iphone to 2.2.1. i waited for OS X 10.5.7 because i'm on a unibody macbook, and didn't want the DFU headaches. Is it even possible to downgrade to iTunes 8.1? How do I do that? thanks jkp

well... good to see my *slap* was received well. Truly meant to get your attn. rather than start any fights. Way to snap out of it. and... um... while that is how to get it all off your system... remember thats from in terminal, you know? Assuming folks know their way around the terminal presupposes they won't make mistakes. Be careful. and cheers, once again, for not snapping back at me.

though feeling stupid for doing the 8.2 update without thinking, I'm also breathing a sigh of relief. I've read the dev-team's blog and see that there's actually no major harm in having updated to 8.2; my iphone will still sync just fine. the only problem would be if i wanted to unlock/jailbreak again, which for me is hardly likely. to reiterate, according to dev-team, if your iphone is already pwnaged or quickpwned to 2.2.1, it'll sync okay with itunes 8.2. just don't try to use pwnage or quickpwn with 8.2. chrs jkp
