I played a little bit earlier today and dug my initial cave and then quit. I got back on later and started making my cave larger, quit again when I was done. When I came back, I had all the materials that I had collected from my digging, but my cave was completely filled in again. Even now, if I dig a piece of dirt and quit out, the block is back but I keep accumulating dirt in my inventory.

what gives?
Its a bug in the newest version a bunch of people have been running into. They're fixing some major bugs from the last update, and this is included.

Yep, sucks. After that all happened, I signed out in my cave and when I signed in later it spawned me somewhere above ground at night and I promptly died and lost all my materials. Now I have no idea where my cave was.

So, not exactly the best first impression. I guess I picked a crappy day to try to get into Minecraft.

I noticed that when you try to place a torch on the floor next to a wall it goes on the wall instead of the floor.

Why doesn't everyone back up their worlds and saves through iFunBox? It's just for procautionary measures.

I haven't had any issues with it yet other than a tower of sand that I built as a landmark ... I decided to destroy the bottom and see how the sand reacted and a bunch of the blocks were harvested but some maybe 10 or so blocks up remain hovered in mid air.

Since I have the PC version I don't play the PE edition for anything but survival. For building cool stuff I use Eden. Maybe a good idea if you upgraded and are afraid of what it might do to an old save I'd simply don't load an old save. Start a new one or open one you don't care about and experiment with it.

is it worth it? here's what I see...

I never updated to the nether update because it apparently made an eyesore and held back for a next update to sort it out. I actually stopped playing the game to keep it fresh for when the next update hit but I think this doesn't look much better.

Now the update comes out various things are fixed but the nether is still a landscape destroying eyesore or not?

Also really dig tunnels and it all goes back?

This generally sounds quite bad. Should I update or stay with my tried and tested pre-nether version that doesn't cause grief?

The one advantage I can see is that tunnels respawning could be good for collecting resources and in such small worlds you can only build so much before you run out... so perhaps its a sheep in wolves clothing and this is not a bad time to update but best for survival/creative reasons?

thoughts?
You can update and just NOT use the nether reactor. But while my old nether structures are up....my new one (after the update) seems to have dissapeared. Im not sure if it is because of the bug or not but when i went back to harvest the nether bricks it was gone

I'm runnin on full 0.6.0 and I haven't encountered ANY bugs at all, and I'm running on an iTouch 4th generation.

You're missin out on some awesome features and content, buddy

As far as the "app doesn't start" issue, it might have something to do with your Internet connection. I know that sounds dumb, but ever since Pocket Edition launched, Ive had a problem where if I'm using wifi, there's a white screen for about 30 seconds and then the title screen comes on, and when I'm not on wifi, it just goes to the title screen automatically. Just something I noticed.
