there is a tutorial on how to enable mms without needing to connect to itunes, its on my website same as user id, admin please approve this post it is not spam it really works, for a 3.0 iPhones and maybe 3.01 not sure about that though.
EDIT: Ah, it shows up if I add www to the front of it. Fair enough.
I don't know if it was caused by this or someting else but I followed the instructions on the site that was listed here iphonepixelpost.xxx and added the source into cydia but now my cydia database is corrupt and I can't see any sources at startup and I can't see any installed apps. Has anyone else tried this approach with the same result? Does anyone know of a way to reset cydia's database?
I've used the instructions previously to install SuperemePreferences, and can verify that the method he mentions will work -- it's not necessarily EASIER than forcing iTunes to accept the .ipcc, but it's definitely easier if you don't have a computer at your disposal :).
With that in mind, I do not believe following the instructions should have caused any problems. Personally I don't know how to manually delete and re-create the Cydia database, unfortunately -- though I'm sure someone here will get back quickly with a good way to do just that.
so turns out just about anyone who owned a 2G iPhone originally is setup improperly somewhere deep in AT&T's system, i guess there are multiple systems that keep track of a customers history, maybe one is deprecated i dont know, but one part of the system listed my as still having the 2G while the other part listed the 3G (as i've heard from many other people) so if you still don't have it working be sure to call them, email didnt do it for me. however sending an return email to their initial got me a phone call back VERY quickly and it was resolved within about 10 mins and very little wait time. this is the first time im impressed with their customer service.
- su root (password = alpine)
- cd /var/lib/apt/list
- rm *
- cd partial
- rm *
Now you can quit terminal an run cydia again.
If you not familiar with command line in terminal, you can use ifunbox (google for it) and remove stuff in directories indicated above
If you really don't know what you are doing, you can try this utility (I cannot vouch for it because I never try it). Download here ClearCydiaListCache.rar
- connect phone to pc and run the executable.
May I suggest making this thread a sticky? It's getting buried on page 2 now and there are a lot of people who still need this info handy.
stickied per request :)
