it stopped halfway through and now does not sync.
You need to upgrade to Lion.
iCloud for your Mac requires Mac OS X Lion v10.7.2
You can download and install Lion from the App Store but make sure your Mac meets Lion's requirements first.
- Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor
- 2GB of memory
- OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
- 7GB of available space
I was looking for the same thing. I read where you canmake a CalDev account and point the server to iCloud. I just can't find the link! So, yes you can do it without Lion. I know that Lion is not ready for me, and Im not ready for Lion. Apple can't even get the wi-fi in snow leoprad upgraded systems to work, but thats another thread.
OK, anyone know the server address to iCloud/calendar?
I am right you can do this and here is a link:
However, you need a .me mail account. You will have one either from subscribing to mobile.me or you can "activate" a new .me mail account in iCloud via Lion. Another way that Apple has been focing customers to adopt their new OS when it's new $30 OS doesn't work with the $1000's of dollars in software a lot of us have.
In short, no .me account, no Lion, no syncing with the cloud. But, wait! What if I got a trial .me account, set up the .me address and followed the instructions on the above link? It might work. I don't need anything but my caldars to sync up anyhow. Good luck!
