Currently Being ModeratedDec 28, 2009 10:01 AM (in response to Random2009x)The problem you are having is based on your download connection from the apple site.
Additionally during the past few days, alot of people have been requesting the firmware update from the apple servers.
Are you still having this issue today, and what is your internet connection type at the moment.
As for the app shut down, have you tried hard cycling the power on the ipod touch? Some apps request that you restart the device using the hard power cycle (power hold for 10 seconds, swipe the red bar, and then hold it until you see the apple logo... Sometimes there are a few times where app installs consume alot of extra space and by doing a cycle it will help with the not able to use the software issue you are having.
As for the update, please do post back your connection type so we can help more!MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (Mid-2009), 2.8GHz w/500GB HDD, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Syncs with: (2x) Classics 160GB (09), Nano 5G, Touch 64GB, Apple TV
Currently Being ModeratedDec 29, 2009 4:48 AM (in response to iNexxFear)It is still taking a long time (7 hours) but not as long as yesterday. My internet connection appears to be fine, Apple + Itunes load perfectly fine and everything seems to be running.
My apps still don't work and I have done what you suggested.Acer, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedDec 29, 2009 5:10 AM (in response to Random2009x)This is a very strange issue... I've seen a few others on here that have issues with getting thier apps to open on thier devices.
I don't know the cause, or solution... Unfortunatley this is all that I can offer at the moment, I would also ask if this device is made for your area, and not imported from somewhere else. That could have another impact onto the syncronization & play issue.MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (Mid-2009), 2.8GHz w/500GB HDD, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Syncs with: (2x) Classics 160GB (09), Nano 5G, Touch 64GB, Apple TV
Currently Being ModeratedMar 8, 2010 6:15 AM (in response to iNexxFear)Here´s the solution I found another member had kindly provided a while back, it works but you might have to click on the cross in the iTunes window to stop the backup after having unclicked Sync Apps so that they are quickly removed from the ipod. In my case it was the World News app update which I downloaded Wifi which caused the trouble. The culprit app will probably take longer to be removed but afterwards everything´s OK again.
