Waze 3.5, iPhone 4S, iOS 6 - Is There A Workaround?

Postby PhantomSoul » Wed Nov 07, 2012 10:07 pm

iOS 6.0.1 can be loaded over the air now, at least on iPhone 5 via AT&T. It downloads an app to your phone that then works around the bug to update iOS to 6.0.1 and conveniently removes itself during the update process. A rather elegant solution, I must say...

No, the update works over-the-air (at least with wifi), but it is a two-stage-process on the iphone 5 which had the bug. Opening settings/software-update loads a fixed updateprogram which when started will load the real 6.0.1-update.

Best regards,

Waze 3.5, iPhone 4S, iOS 6 - Is There A Workaround?

Postby OldGnome » Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:04 am

I am fully aware that we are waiting for a fix from Waze.

I have the usually reported problem where Waze won't even load. The other symptom I get when Waze will load is that no audio is possible. I have tried a secondary audio app and I get nothing from Waze or anything else.

Is there a workaround to the situation?

I updated mine using WiFi, so it may only be specific circumstances that require connecting directly to computer.


I upgraded to 6.0.1 as soon as I noticed that it was available. I did it over 3G from my office, which has a weak signal, and it was done in less than 5 minutes, including the reboot.

They need a 6.0.2. I'm having very little trouble with Waze (knock on wood), but there's weird glitches in a number of other apps I use on a daily basis.

Same here. Don't they do some kind of controlled release where only some people get it over a certain time frame, to keep the servers from getting overloaded?


There is no 6.0.2


You're right. I'm an idiot. Obviously I was thinking of something else.
