No issues, works great. Profiles is worth price of admission to have rock on my iphone IMHO

The new version works for me, as well.
Profiles seems to be really great! It has a lot of features to offer an the new pricetag of 4.99 is reasonable.
However, it has two annoying bugs, so far.
1. It only plays "Marimba" as ringtone for me, no matter what I configured (tried everything, it always only plays Marimba.... I hate Marimba)
2. Alerts (missed Calls, SMS) don't work at all.
PLEASE FIX THESE!!

If you are getting an error #591 (Mac Only), please add permissions on the file /Applications/Rock Your Phone.app/Contents/Resources/Java/Rock/unlockfiles/RockAppBase.deb or simply delete the installation and download the latest?

the new update finally works great, no problems no restore needed, installed cleanly and also installed Intelliscreen
Good Work Team on fixing the problems we were having

Nice work but:
Three installers on my phone? No Thanks.
$13 For Beta Testing? No Thanks
Your timing is also unlucky. With OS 3.00 coming out in two months I think I will just wait and see what that can do before mucking with my phone further.

Attention Rock Your Phone Support
Quick feature question... is it possible to add functionality in MyProfiles to alert when an email is sent TO a specific distribution? By sender/subject is awesome, but in order to kill off the level 1 notifications I need on my company blackberry and only have to use one device, is to be able to notify me when an email is sent to a pager distribution which is what this would do.
Something easy to add? Will become a committed member if I can get this. :-)

So I was about to download this just for the "Escalating Rings and Vibrate 1st then Ring" but I think i'll wait till they come correct and it stops playing Russian roulette with everyone's iPhone.
Furthermore who in their RIGHT mind is going to give up 13 BUCKS for a BETA? (unless it's full release is coming in 10 days more or less) lol c'mon man shouldn't it be free?
After all the "positive" comments regarding this new "appstore", I feel sorry for all the people who got a little more for what they bargained for LOL!!! That is straight F'D

OK, I have given this RockYourPhone thing three tries now (yes, I am a bit slow), each time it has been better, but each time it has ultimately hosed my iphone and caused me to do a full restore.
Three strikes and you are OUT.
I am 100% done with it. Bummer too, cause I am a registered user of Intelliscreen.

There is no reason why this company could not sell their products through Cydia as they used to do with Inteliscreen.
This is not an app store or cydia store alternative - it is one company trying to sell their own products and making people install other, dangerous,, software to do it.
I, for one, will be steering well clear.
Three strikes and your out? I would rather not give beta software a chance to screw with my devices unless I know exactly what I am letting myself in for.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Hope next time I'll be smarter and read all the msgs before installing.
The profiles app was way too buggy, didn't really do what it should, e.g. alerts didn't work at all, it messed up ringtones (only Marimba would work when myProfiles was installed, and I could watch my battery drain.)
So I tried to uninstall....
First I recognized tons of remaining files in the iPhone's file system after "uninstalling" myProfiles. Then SSH didn't work anymore for me (after uninstalling Rock Installer). Re-Installing Rock Installer brought SSH back to life.
Later I started cydia and under "Manage - Packages" -> EVERYTHING WAS GONE, except the Apple Firmware entry (even after rebooting etc.)!!
SOMETHING must have messed up the apt-database and the only things I installed within the last week(s) were Rock Installer and myProfiles.
Then... my online-apps (e.g. mail, last.fm, allRadio etc.) weren't capable of establishing a 3G internet connection anymore. That was the case after myProfiles changed the WIFI status on different profiles. e.g. changed from "Home" to "Home WIFI", WIFI started, then I went back to "Home" profile, withouth WIFI.
->After that no more internet connection was available, upon REBOOT of the iPhone!
I finally gave up (I hate giving up on tech stuff) and trashed my beautiful chilly sunday evening by doing a full restore of my iPhone, installing, syncing, embarrassed and disappointed.
For me, this was THE WORST LAUNCH OF COMMERCIAL SOFTWARE SINCE THE INVENTION OF STEAM!
Good Riddance now. My iPhone is now happily back on track with _only_ cydia installed. Lesson learned.
Sorry for the rant but it was just too much on the bad side.

I can appreciate the frustration a lot of you must be experiencing, but aside from a couple of bugs with MyProfiles (which I'm only using on a trial basis) RYP hasn't been a problem. Elert works great, the alerts in MyProfiles are awesome...hopefully the other bugs will get worked out. I don't think I'll pay for anything until that happens, though.
03-16-2009, 01:56 PM #136
The funny thing is that RYP keeps sending out update after update and yet 1 out of every 10 people who have installed/tried to install this on their phone have got it to work correctly. The number of positive stories should be outweighing the bad ones, but this is not the case. Almost every other post here has someone who has to restore their phone at least one time. I really want to try intellidial but not at the risk of having to restore several times, not being able to SSH into my phone without having RYP's software on my device, and who charges for a beta?? I dont care if the price was dropped from $13 to $5. This is as bad when Halo 3 beta came out and you had to buy Crackdown to play the beta, paying for any type of beta is whack!! Any kind of beta should be free, since the purpose of the beta is to find the bugs and correct them. Would you spend money on a car or fly on a plane you knew was in the beta stage? This sounds stupid because it is stupid to sell anything in beta testing.
Until I see major changes of opinion/experiences people have about this, RYP wont see the light of day on my phone!!

ninthchamber, the "funny" thing is that people are grumbling about paying for BETA software, but there's a 10-day free trial so nobody has to pay for anything. The Elert app was free.
All of this has been free of charge for me to test. 7 days left on MyProfiles trial, and I'm looking forward to more updates to fix the bugs.
To each his own, I guess -- but it was stupid for anyone to pay when he didn't have to.
03-16-2009, 03:02 PM #138
I just can't understand why they released their software in such an early stage. I am sure, though, once they work out the bugs it will be pretty cool. But I still don't understand why they don't release their software in cydia and I never liked the idea of having an additional desktop client just for the purpose of installing iPhone apps.
So, ninthchamber99, maybe you should just wait a bit more until everything is on track here and I am sure it will be soon. Nevertheless, I will never return to RYP...
And in the end it's kinda nice feeling to have a clean fresh installed iPhone

I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

This is simply the dumbest thing I have ever saw...
We already have Installer and Cydia, Plus the AppStore!
More than 80% of us use "Certain Apps/Sources" so we get the AppStore apps free anyway, and it won't be long until a site it release that host cracked CydiaStore apps. I don't mind donating to a Dev. if they have good apps. I have donated to about 10 different Devs. because they have amazing apps, and others do the same. Accepting donations is understandable, they need the money, but asking for the money it not very smart. What about the people that can't afford $1, $3, even some AppStore apps up to $20 for apps they want?
If you want money for your apps, put them on AppStore or accept donations... simply as that.
