iOS 6.1 Software Update: unlike 6.0.2 it works on my iPod touch too

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/29

The iOS 6.1 Software Update is available. Whereas the 6.0.2 didn’t install on an iPod Touch 4th generation, this one does and seems to promise better battery life.

6.0 and 6.0.1 seemed to have shorter battery life, so I’m looking forward to see how much better 6.1 is.

Below are some ideal replacements, as I always loose track of my tiny iPod Shuffle charger dongle.

How to reset a hung or frozen Apple ipod classic (80 gb)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/11/05

Great answer (from 4 years ago, these devices don’t hang that often):

Try resetting it. That will work for many problems your iPod has. I have a 5th generation 60GB iPod video, and to reset mine, you have to

  1. hold down the top of the clickwheel (MENU) and the middle button at the same time.
  2. Keep them pressed down until your iPod shuts off (should take several seconds) and begins to start up again.

It can be difficult to hold both down at the same time, so I recommend using two hands.

It looks like everything signed by an Adobe Code Signing Certificate can be malware

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/29

If I read Inappropriate Use of Adobe Code Signing Certificate my conclusion is that anything signed by the Adobe Code Signing Certificate since 2012-07-10 potentially can be malware.

As a precaution, I will manually revoke the certificate on all my systems (that’ll take a while!). If anyone knows how to automate that process, please post a comment showing how to.

Hitching on a trusted certificate of a big software company comes close to the ultimate hack: trojaning signed malware in the distribution of an OS vendor.
