2 new games not working on 2.2.1


I've got a jailbroken 2.2.1 Iphone (and before anybody starts firing off pirate accusations, I only jailbroke it as I've bought so many apps on the appstore that I couldn't see them on the 9 screens of the springboard - yes I know you get 11 on v3. but it's still not enough !).

Anyway, I bought Dweebs yesterday, and today (along with real football), Must.Eat.Birds. Both games get me to the main play screen and then it kicks me back to the springboard.

I've tried rebooting the iphone and I've made sure that other games I've bought recently (including real football) work, and they do.

So looks like there's a new incompatibility being introduced which will force people to move to 3.0

I personally don't want to go to 3 yet because of issues I've heard about wifi and battery

Must.Eat.Birds does that for me too. But I'm on 3.0 on an unjailbroken 3G. It's a bug with the app.

I don't know about the other one.

yes, but I've had this setup since well before version 3 using quickgold on the jailbroken 2.2.1, you didn't have spotlight before version 3

I think I will wait for the dust to settle on version 3 before making the move across as judging by the forums in introduces not only new features but also some issues (and as someone who got caught out with 2.2.0, and it's failing to send SMS messages, I'm cautious)

Sorry you are having problems with Dweebs on your iPhone.

I can confirm that the app was compiled on latest Xcode IDE that supports OS 3.0 but is in fact compiled for OS 2.2.1 devices - the same goes for the free LITE version due out shortly.

It has been tested here on iPhone 3G OS 2.2.1, iPhone 3GS OS 3.0 and 1st Gen iTouch OS 2.2.1 & OS 3.0 and works fine, so not sure what your problem could be to be honest?

My only advice is to upgrade to OS 3.0 perhaps? or claim a refund.

Here are some free promo codes for Dweebs for any US readers...

thanks for the reply. As it was relatively cheap, I won't bother on a refund, and once I do eventually shift to OS3.0 without jailbreak, I'm sure it will work, although as a previous poster said, he is experiencing issues on a standard 3g Iphone V3.0 non jailbreak (with must.eat.birds).
