USB Drive 1.3 for the iOS 7 alpha

I just updated USB Drive in the repository for the version 1.3 alpha.

Version 1.3 the only version which expected to work with iOS 7.x.x and it work this this version of iOS only. We also got new icon, ipad interface and great internal redevelopment to resolve old problems.

Sure, we've got new :)

  • Requires iOS 7.0.x. It will not work on previous version of iOS due to API changes. I will need to backport iOS 7 changes to support iOS 6 and earlier. 
  • Drive Only mode doesn't work and disabled. 
  • In many cases only the very first volume is recognized by host system. USB Drive may miss GET_MAX_LUN USB Mass Storage class request in iOS 7.0 which must be handled correctly to support multi volume configuration
  • I recommend to re-create all volumes which were created in USB Drive 1.2. The upgrade path with reasonable defaults exists, but wasn't fully tested.
This is alpha quality release, please expect (and report) bugs. I do not recommend to install this alpha version to anyone who isn't familiar with ssh command line interface.

No iOS 6.x support for the USB Drive yet

I've got number of reports regarding issues with USB Drive on iOS 6.x devices. The most notable problem is an inability to use "Drive Only" mode, which is vital for the Windows users. Since USB Drive wasn't been updated for years I expect further issues, so use it carefully and backup your data!

Well, I'm going to update it, but I live in a tight schedule nowadays, sorry guys.

Jailbreak is not for pirating software!

I just read that Hackulous servers were shut downed. And you know, I feel better right now, just because every time  I started speaking about jailbreak people says "Ah! You are doing jailbreak to play free games!". No, I don't. I feel better because many small developers, like me, in Apple ecosystem would be able to earn a little more money, someone would be able to start they first micro business and so on.

In my opinion jailbreak is for the software and people that do not fit into Apple concept of devices for dummies. We have number of tweaks and software that just impossible to get though certification process, but they are still great.

This is my iPhone/iPad and I want to have a ssh/usb drive in them, but let's do not pirate software.

P.S. Happy New Year and Merry Christmass :)

I am sorry to inform you, but current version of  USB drive is very old and don't supported for years. I never tested it with latest devices and  iOS. I still keep it in repository for pure historical reasons and for the inquring minds :)

Q: Will you release USB Drive 2.0?
A: I don't know, but there is a chance.

Q: Will you release source code to the public?
A: No.

Hope to remove this post sometimes in the future.

A2DP Enabler updated. Ads were removed.

If you still use A2DP I've got a good news for you. I just posted an 1.3 update which removes Quattro advertisements. They didn't work anyway, since Quattro were purchased by Apple. This also removes annoying CoreLocation warning and white rectangle at the bottom of the main form.

Regarding future development and USB Drive. I still do not have any time to respond to suport enquiries and have to warn anyone who will try to use that this application that it was development on 2.x.x firmware and probably have issues on modern devices.

If anyone have connection problem to please drop me e-mail, I am keep an eye on the server, but sometimes it fails.

A2DP Enabler updated

I have just updated A2DP Enabler, an application which enabled A2DP profile on original iPhone 2G. he primary goal for this update is to disable it for non iPhone 2G devices.

The update is also resolves a problem with "paired devices" list which sometimes doesn't populated properly.  The update is optional, if A2DP works properly on your device you do not need to update  but shouldn't hurt at the same time :)

Requires original iPhone 2G with iPhone OS 3.0 or higher. It doesn't work on 2.2.1 firmware and never will be.

A2DP Enabler can be downloaded from repository

USB Drive version 1.1

This was a long road, but finally we have reached the release stage.  A current version is marked as 1.1 and it has the following changes since last beta:
  • No date restriction, this makes too much hassle
  • ReadOnly option now works propely
  • Minor bug fixes and tweaks

I have a big TODO list for this project, so stay tuned :)
