False Alert: iTunes 9.1 Is Out - Adds iPad Support & Breaks Jailbreak Sync

March 30, 2010

Watch out folks! Apple has just released a new version of iTunes (9.1) bringing iPad and iBooks support. Unfortunately, it seems to also be breaking the possibility for jailbroken iDevices to sync with iTunes.

I just made the update and I'm finding myself simply unable to sync anymore. Actually, my Mac doesn't recognize my iPhone altogether.

I'm not sure what's going on, but we're investigating the issue and we'll keep you posted.


Alright, a simple reboot actually fixed the issue for me. We're still unclear at the moment how it affects those who rely on a tethered jailbreak or still use a PC, but for the rest of you, I believe you should be fine.

Sorry about that!
