Posted on Tuesday August 5th, 2008 / 21:42

Μετά (ή κατά) την αναβάθμιση στην iPhone Firmware v2.0.1 είναι πολύ πιθανό να αντιμετωπίσετε μερικά προβλήματα. Ας δούμε πιά είναι αυτά αλλά και πως θα τα επιλύσετε:

1) Airplane mode can cause bricked phones

Attention: Disable airplane mode before installing
Prior to installing the iPhone OS 2.0.1 update, make sure that Airplane mode is not enabled on your iPhone. Having Airplane mode turned on can result in a non-functional phone when the update is applied. You may receive the error message:

“Information for activation cannot be obtained from the iPhone”

Sollution: Disable Airplane mode from the emergency screen if your iPhone is put into an inactivated state by a problematic update.

2) Carrier error

“iTunes could not update the carrier settings on your iPhone” Several users are receiving the error message “iTunes could not update the carrier settings on your iPhone. An unknown error occurred (OxE80000001).”

Sollution: If this error occurs, try clicking the “Restore” button in iTunes rather than “Update.”

3) Problems installing

You may be experiencing problems during the installation procces…

Sollution No1: The first thing to try is simply multiple attempts. The iPhone may fail to update on the first attempt, but succeed in restoring on the second or third attempt.

Sollution No2: Your copy of the update may be corrupt. Try deleting an re-downloading it. Either use the standalone download links (iPhone 1st geniPhone 3G) or navigate to on of the following directories:

Windows XP: C:/documents and settings/[yourusername]/Application Data/Apple Computer/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates
Windows Vista: C:/users/[yourusername]/AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

and delete the 2.0.1 update.

Sollution No3: re-install iTunes. Simply download the package, run the installer and restart.

Failing that, under Mac OS X, try deleting the following files:


then re-install iTunes.

Sollution No4: Put the iPhone in Recovery mode then restore it.
