Don't know what you mean "not feasible for a long time" I'm doing it now.
While I'm not happy about this problem, and will be very unhappy if Apple does not fix it, the original iPhone has always been a slave to the USB cable. All I'm concerned about is that the phone retains the same functionality it had when I purchased it. Apple has already rescinded synchronization services i had with MobileMe, but if they completely restrict the way I get apps into my phone, that's another matter.
I think we all forget that the original iPhone could only run web-apps. That may be the future for the original iPhone, even if the app store functionality is restored, as many apps I have tried to download recently require a minimum of iOS 4. As developers stop supporting iOS 3 with their updates, the original iPhone and 3G will slowly lose their functionality.
iOS 3.1.3 (7E18)
mac device for OS sync - unavailable
-genius stopped working
-genius started working
-info page back button disappeared for a long time
-back button fixed
-genius stopped working the info back button started working again
- buy button changes color and shape
- info page full graphic splash sizing wrong
- no horizontal scroll of splash
- can update apps
- can't buy apps...
- AppStore GUI code mistakes?
- or does the production manager @AppStore GUI even try
the updates on a 2 yr old device- before releases?
As it stands, is iOS 3.1.3 no longer compatible with the Appstore
or is it that Apple does not support this iOS or what?
Regardless of my update woes...if you don't, can't, or won't
support it ...just say so.. publicly. Excuse my tone- gets tiring
telling someone how to pack a bag of groceries- over and over...
i have the same problem., i have ipodtouch 1g., the download button change its shapes and collor and won't allow me to download., but i think i fix it.,
go to your settings -> general -> reset -> reset all settings
WARNING: it will erased all your data, apps etc. i mean ALL that your gadgets have will be deleted
then wait for it and when its open try to go to apps store and go to featured try to click (touch) it and the button will no longer change., but i try to do it in other apps but still dont work., but i noticed that all the featured apps are good., so i don't know -_- (sorry bout my english xD) im so f**** up right know
yup im running iOS3.1.3 on a iphone 3G & when i click the download butting, it kinda crashes & partially disapears.....been doing that for a week now I think or more..... im presuming its the usual "encouragement" apple do to get people to buy a new iphone every 9 months...
nice to see there ignoring the thing like usual & hoping the media dont find out & give them more bad press....as there such a "friendly helpful" company lol....
