Here’s a quick tip this morning for those of you who are Mac users and are considering an upgrade to Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. This Wikidot webpage which is updated regularly by Mac users who have updated their systems to Snow Leopard shows you a good long list of compatibility status of many popular apps. Though incompatibility isn’t expected to be a major problem with the new update, it is inevitable therefore Apple have released their own list, but it is much less comprehensive and not as frequently updated.

Backing up apps downloaded from Cydia and the Installer.app for jailbroken iPhones have virtually been a non-existent support thus far. If you’re one of millions who have been either unlocked and/or jailbreaked your iPhone then you will know how great it is to have so many great free third party apps and downloadable tools and content. Despite this, probably the most annoying thing about having a jailbroken iPhone (no matter first gen or second gen iPhone 3G) is that everytime Apple releases a new firmware update, the iPhone’s jailbreak is replaced and what’s lost along with it are all the jailbreak apps downloaded and accumulated over the past weeks and months.

I never thought of this, but it seems some iPhone users update / upgrade their iPhone’s firmware in airplane mode in order to avoid phone calls coming in and disrupting the update process. However it seems the latest iPhone firmware update version 2.2.1 doesn’t like this (it appears that the update requires cell phone signal?). What would or could happen is your iPhone will appear to be stuck or frozen for some time, subsequently a message reporting lost of connection would appear, causing the update to fail completely.

By the way, this applies to those updating directly via iTunes, so no matter whether or not you decide to jailbreak your firmware 2.2.1 after the firmware update, you need to update to 2.2.1 using iTunes anyway first. So it’s wise to be aware of your airplane mode and turn it off to avoid potentially wasting hours of sitting and waiting!

Incase you do run into the situation where you get a completely frozen or bricked iPhone because you left airplane mode on purposely for the update like you usually do, here’s the fix and how to get your iPhone unbricked and working again:

“To turn off Airplane Mode on your seemingly “bricked” iPhone, disconnect the USB cable (or undock), then slide the Emergency Call switch to reach the emergency call phone. You’ll be prompted to disable Airplane Mode. Tap “Disable”. Then press the Home button, reconnect the phone, and watch iTunes recognize/reactivate your iPhone.”

Thanks to Victor from TUAW for pointing this out over at Apple discussions board
