Monopoly – a game that almost everybody knows – has been revived and redesigned for the virtual sphere as “Monopoly City Streets” (MCS). As many other news services have already written thousands of pages about it, we’re not gonna repeat it here. To summarize: it seems this game is fun for many millions around the globe.
Sadly although the makers have already taken actions against issues and problems by upgrading hardware and by resetting the whole game to enable everybody to start anew, there are aswell technical as social issues unsolved all over.
I for example have today bought an 8 million street and built some little houses on it. See here how you can become the leader of the game with an 8 million street. And no, I was not cheating. I enjoyed playing with real competition until this happened:
So how often does this happen? I wrote an error report, but how many other people do that? The most logical consequence would have been to sell the street immediately to get the cash transferred for real…
We read all over the net and found some solutions to the most common issues that occurred. If you are kinda conservative user, we’d recommend not to update to firmware 2.1 and wait until a PwnageTool and QuickPwn update has been released. Since the iPhone Dev Team is reacting very fast, this should take only some days.
Error 1600 and Error 6: restore with stock firmware 2.1, then QuickPwn (you may then put into restore mode and install custom IPSW, but it’s not necessary- credits to “HomeGrown”).
Error 1600: when Pwnage asks, if already pwned your device, answer NO, no matter if you pwned if before or not (credits to “Maurofoto”)
Error 1600: let iTunes download firmware 2.1 again (you may delete it from the local folder if you already downloaded it via iTunes. Folder on a Mac: ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Update/), then exit iTunes, prep a custom IPSW using Pwnage, delete the iTunes downloaded firmware from the above mentioned folder again and copy your custom IPSW to that folder, but name it exactly as the original firmware was named (credits to “Markat”)
Jim Goldmann of CNBC interviewed Steve Jobs on tuesday. Steve talks about their new iPod holiday collection, about bugs in the iPhone 3G and Microsoft’s new advertisments. Steve – as always – is kinda simpatico, but he definitly looks a little bit thinner than last year.
