Is that an iexplorer problem or a 6.0.1 lockdown?

I'm guessing a lockdown as ifunbox can copy but not write to the device

3D Star Strike is one of the first games I ever played.

Dont blame the dev really as perhaps sales were light with the games he was actually selling.

I've got about 300 games installed on it already, annoying if i cant add others but with 300 i cant moan too much ! Love the app and bought some of the full packs to support the dev.

Cant beat some of these old classics, graphics may look outdated but the gameplays still there (Bomb Jack on the Speccy is still a great game)

I'm not blaming the Dev. Just letting people know who just found this app and are on ios 6.0.1 that they can't add custom games to it.

If this is permanent I may have to get the elite collection to at least have the big name games again. Are the controls, etc. alright in the elite collection?

I found the joystick usable in the Elite app, wasnt keen on the other controls with all the diagonal bits etc

I wish Elite would do more Speccy stuff, gone very quiet recently. Its nice to know the original devs get something from these games (Or they did when Elite paid them a chunk for the rights).

Loved waiting for all the new game packs from Elite but they've been very quiet in most of their apps, their other collections seem dead

Is it a combination of 6.0.1 and the latest version of the app? I still haven't updated yet.

I think it's IOS 6.0.1 as I have tried Iexplorer and Ifunbox and can't copy anything to the iPad. I've read that Apple have really made things difficult on customizing anything now. Just sad I missed out on this great app.

Just found this on the Iexplorer website.

Apple made some changes in iOS 6 where the .app (dot app) folder within an app directory cannot be modified or written to, and the files within that folder can't be opened or transferred. But, you can still read/write in any other app subdirectory such as Documents or Library, same as in previous iOS versions. Our developers are looking into ways around this limitation imposed by Apple, but I don't currently have an ETA on when an update might happen. You'll find that any iOS transfer utility software will have the same limitation with iOS 6, and jailbreaking your device is the only way around it currently.

Since there is no jailbreak for A5 devices on IOS 6.0.1 then no custom games for people on 4s, 5, iPad2 and above if they have updated
