  • iTunes 8.2.1 Available for Download


    Today Apple released a new version of iTunes which does nothing more than have bug fixes, accessibility improvements and addresses an issue with the verification of Apple devices. A side effect of this update is the inability to sync the Palm Pre.

    We do not know how this will affect jailbroken devices, pwnage tool, etc... so please be careful updating.

      Hi everybody
      I'm new in here. I want to know if is it safe to download iTunes 8.2.1 right now? Or I should wait for a while that the Dev Team will determine if it wouldn't locked my jailbroken/unlocked iPhone 3G on the future?

      here's a link to download 8.2 in case anyone needs to downgrade, or like me, you had a really old version and need to upgrade.

      Why upgrade at all if it doesn't offer any advantages over the previous version?

      My Rule of Thumb:

      Always wait at least two weeks before upgrading to any newer version. As one other member said earlier; I'm really enjoying the MMS part and do NOT want to take any chances.

      So my advice to all the newbies....DO NOT UPGRADE YET until you can read an overwhelming majority here saying that its ok.

      well dangit ... i just got my 3gs two days ago ... had the previous version of itunes, but the redsn0w jailbreak guide I had found told me to update the most recent version.

      So I did update and I was able to jailbreak and plug back in and sync with the new version of Itunes ok... don't know what this means for the future though.

      Newbie question, but since I used redsn0w to JB my 3GS, if I do a factory restore through itunes, would that essentially unjailbreak the phone and restore it as brand new? In case of warranty issues or something of that nature? And should I do a backup now with my jailbroken apps installed?

      And would that be the process if a new and improved jailbreak was released?

      Just a quick heads up.... I updated with itunes and found no issues with my tmobile iphone. It also does not affect the jailbreakin process.

      It's over for Apple and the Pre. Users of the Pre already know it'll sync so whatever they patched will be broken and the Pre guys will be back in action for music syncing. The ability to do that alone will sell a million more Pre's. That's like their little jailbreak
