SDK beta firmware 'timing out' for iPhone developers

updated 05:05 pm EDT, Tue April 8, 2008

SDK beta times out

Developers participating in the iPhone SDK beta are discovering that the device is "bricking" itself after the limited-time beta expires. TUAW readers point out that this shouldn't come as a surprise, since a note posted for developers says that the beta would indeed expire if not kept current. Another user notes that the next development firmware version has yet to be seeded to non-enterprise developers, while another still says that a call to the Apple Developer Connection revealed an updated SDK masquerading as an older one.

Others have found that by backdating the iPhone to a previous working firmware is an acceptable workaround, while some suggest that it is possible to forcibly remove any limitations with the iPhone "pwnage" tool.
