iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

Do you think you have noticed any difference or are you just asking ? I had a quick listen earlier on and i don’t think there was any obvious difference in volume.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

This seems to have fixed all the problems I was having with the iPod not waking up properly and yes the calendar is much faster!

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

Well pleased about the clicks going but it’s funny they don’t mention that in the list of fixes!?

However, I’d still like my UK 30GB iPod to go a bit louder, are the US models more powerful? Knowledgebase article 60920 claims 60mW output, but I think that refers to the previous models…!?

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

So much for all that nonsense previously written about different firmware in the US and European iPods.  The firmware download is the same from both sides of the Atlantic.

Pity the new firmware doesn’t allow the tunes to join together more better as happens on the original CD or indeed in iTunes.  Still the pause between songs, but at long last cyrillic font support is there but please change to a better font please Apple, the space between letters is a little large!!!

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

I wish the CEO or people in charge over there at Apple Computer would change the current situation regarding the new 2.0 iPod software. Offering the new iPod software only to owners of 3rd-generation iPods truly is a repugnant form of passive-aggressive upgrade scheming. The wrong-headed decision reeks of the dirty tactics used by an unnamed software company from Redmond.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

Thank you Jonh. I also thought they were slow to judge, but I guess that’s not the case when you mess with their brainwashed heads about the company they love. Microsoft teaches one thing. One minute you can respect a company and the next you can hate it. No company is infallible.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

All those giving zync a hard time:

Have any of you owned other mp3 devices?

My DVD player plays mp3s - there have been 5 different free firmware releases.

My phone plays mp3s - there are firmware upgrades available for it for free.

My Creative Nomad 2 still has free firmware updates coming out.

My old iRiver slimX plays mp3s - the firmware is still updated (and free), even though they sell other models that are newer/cost more.

None of these companies delete my posts from their website if I request new features or complain about their products.

And to debunk the rumor, I bought my ipod BECAUSE it had upgradeable firmware. If it didn’t, I wouldn’t have purchased it.

At first I thought Mac owners were just slow to judge, but this thread offers strong proof to the contrary - witness how quickly everyone got upset with zync.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

I don’t want to sell my iPod because I don’t like the new ones. I never said it doesn’t still work in the way it did when I bought it. I still enjoy it. These are not my complaints. My complaints are that I paid for an upgradeable piece of hardware and I expect upgrades. So far the “upgrades” I have been given were only bug fixes and therefore not updates. I’m really angry that apple has gone from early may to almost past late June just to release 1.3 for windows users. And for the record, when people make irrelevant/ignorant points it takes no energy to reply to them. The graphic took the most effort but I enjoyed doing it and I’ll probably put it into my portfolio, so I haven’t really wasted any of my time. Oh and BTW, I don’t like the fact that the iPod is more than just an MP3 player, soon it’ll be a PDA and I hate PDAs. I hate the fact that you can sync everything to it and all of that. I bought it for the music and that’s what I use it for. My iPod has contacts and ical files and I never use them….especially since the calendar is wrong every time I use it because I usually let the battery get low enough that it forgets my date/time so that’s not even helping me to be happy with it’s PDA qualities. Now I guess it would be useful if I could store notes and text on it, but I really don’t need it to. It’s for music and that’s why I bought it.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

What are you complaining about. Your iPod is still one of the best things out there. Are you trying to tell me that since everyone else is going to have a slightly better OS on there iPod, your not going to enjoy your music? Think about why you bought your iPod to begin with. I’m sure the reason hasn’t changed. If you ask me, the iPod is more than just an Mp3 player. Its cool because it is a computer. I’m sure you could have used all this energy to do something far more productive than argue this point. Besides theres plenty of people who will gladly buy your iPod. You know why? Because it’s still a beautiful piece of technology.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

I’ve been in the world of technoloy for a long time, Bob. Computers are obsolete in 4 months, not MP3 players, sorry that’s just how it works. Not only that, but the fact that technology works in that fashion isn’t because of software limitations, as is the case here, but because of hardware limitations, which is the case with laptops and other computers in general. The classic iPod can support 2.0.1 features, and apple not giving them to us is a software limitation.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

I have a request for any user of the new iPods.  Would you please e-mail me your SysInfo file that is stored on your iPod?  I think I may have found a way to trick an older gen iPod into thinking that it is a newer iPod and thus updating the firmware.  I managed to trick my iPod into thinking it had firmware 2.0 (at which point the iPod manager software told me I needed to update to 2.01, but it wouldn’t allow me because it still said it was incompatible with the hardware.  So if anyone with a new iPod would please e-mail me the SysInfo file that is located within “iPod_ControlDevice” I would be very grateful.

Thanks.

i found out that the songs sound better too… no more bass distortion…  wow.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

Even better than the clicks being gone for me is that none of my songs skip anymore!  Before the update I was keeping my iPod in its box because using it pissed me off too much since 1/3 of my songs just skipped to the next track at various random times.  Not so anymore.  Now my $400 toy may be usable.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

The calendar is what i would now call snappy, that is a welcome improvement.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

improved backlight—> apparently if you selected ‘always on’ for the backlight, it woudln’t stay on the way it should. also. i think they added the 2 second option for the backlight sleep timer…

improved playback performance—> i think this is a all encompassing thing - the clicks are gone, seems like the menus work better (no lags) and just general touching up of the code.

improved alarm clock—> this means it acually works on my iPod now ;)

i’m sure basically this was just a ton of fixes under the hood, and the few biggies got taken care of too.

maybe they’ll release a better changelog soon.
