Well, well. I was just about to post to this to say that the iPhone 2.0.1 software/firmware update had fixed things. It did for about 6 hours, but after another App Store update, the AS flags started playing up after an update, and then the downloaded apps and the music became unusable again.
This is really, really not funny. I spent hours last night installing the update and repopulating the phone with apps and musics, and I'm back to square 1. Yet again.
Has anyone else had the similar experience of updating the phone to 2.0.1 and have the apps die again?
I dare not ask if anyone has a fix, other than being able to hack the iPhone file system by hand and manually change the permissions via a telnet session running on a Mac (or Linux?) box. And doing this, if possible should probably do nasty things to the warranty.
I'm now going to mothball the iPhone until there's a known robust fix to these problems, and go back to my old Sony Ericsson (and hope that the iPhone's SIM card will work in the SE). I've wasted far too much time on this to continue. Bad show, Apple. -10/10 and no elephant stamp and gold star for you.
