Game Center and Sandbox

I ve noticed that all the games that came out or were updated for ios 5, automatically sign me in to sandbox, while the ones not updated for ios 5 , sign in regularly..

Any fix for this ?

Log out of Game Center and log back in.

Were you beta testing, or something, because that's the only time I'm in the sandbox?

No I never beta tested a game,

Yes, logging out then back in does fix it, but whenever I go to a game center supported game it logs me in to sandbox again automatically.

For every single game, or just some?

Sounds like a device issue, but in my experience as a developer it's the game that will trigger this. Not the device.

I've only heard of this problem once before. The person was having the exact same problem as you.

Here's a potential answer to your problem: "Found out the problem. It's a problem with jailbroken iPhones/ iPod Touches. A certain Cydia tweak called A**Sync+ screwed up the Game Center functionality. Only way around it is to re-jailbreak and not use the A**Sync from the hack*.us repository. Google more about it if you want to."

It seems it only effects games updated for ios 5, the older ones not updated, works fine
