Why Why Why

I have experienced DRM crash almost everyweek.

Once it's refuse to run APPs, only cure is complete restore and reinstall all the APPs.

Soft reset, hard reset, install 2.0.1, sync with iTunes wouldn't solve the problem

Am I destine to use 19 preinstalled APPs?

Please help Cry

P.S it's 3G iPhone BTW

How many applications do you have? Perhaps it's just one that's causing all these problems, so perhaps you should install one at a time, and see if all is ok before going to the next one.

Once you find which application causes the problem you might thn contact the developer.

Although I deleted all but one application left, it wouldn't run.

Only cure I found so far is complete restore process, then ALL the Apps working flawlessly.

But it's pain when it backed up 1200 Contacts, 6GB of MP3s, 6GB of Videos and 370MB of APPs also lost track of SMS and call history since last full backup which seems happen randomly

Why Apple keep DRM when they drop it on its music files, yhea we know the reason and it sucks.

Basically it believed that all APPs even free downloadable in APPStore are DRM protected.

It causes DRM fail to prevent run APP other than preinstalled APPs which seems doesn't have (doesn't need) DRM protected.

Seems give you good idea what is happenning.

Actually there are some great reasons for FairPlay on apps on the app store. It should be a great thing for users purchasing apps, as you should have to worry about license keys and activation systems from a multitude of different developers.

Personally I think apps without FairPlay would suck. Comparing DRM on iPhone apps to DRM on media is Apples and oranges i think. It's used for very different reasons.

I wouldn't against or I wouldn't care at all about DRM,


We paid good money on the device and Apple must make it works flawlessly if they wish to attach this extra security feature for every downloadable applications.

I waited until 2.0.1 because we all know that new version usually takes some time to fix minor bugs, but even after 2.0.1 the problem persist and many suffers, Apple should bashed alot more but they're talking and enjjoying about extra 4.7million unit for next 6 month, wouldn't mention anything about faults user experienced.
