Last night, prior to leaving town, I decided to finally apply the latest iPhone firmware update to take my phone to version 2.0.2. I hadn’t experienced any problems many customers were reporting about instability with the phone or application crashes. Upgrading was just something on my list of “to dos”.
Well, the upgrade didn’t go quite as well as I had hoped.
After the update none of the 3rd party applications installed on my iPhone worked. As in: open the application and 2-3 seconds later it would just close.
I’ve read a couple of posts about this and it sounds like I’m not alone:
The good news is that all the built-in applications still work. What I’ve heard is the bug is somehow related to the DRM support in the iPhone. I’m not sure what it is, but if anyone has any suggestions I’m open.
