I have seen the 1.0.1 thread---how do you upgrade? I was under the impression that it wasn't possible.

I have had blackberries in the past, so I am used to altering the .alx file, but I am not too sure about this iPhone stuff...this is my husbands account and his phone---I am the one that tries to hack and change stuff....

So, if/when there is an OS change, how do I find it? How do I change it? Is there a tutorial here somewhere? Is it as easy as the Blackberry change?

So there's nothing I need to do? :(
You seem disappointed. You could adopt a Zune on the side, feed it and take care of it while iTunes is taking care of iPhone.

Some instructions I found (in short) to feed a sick Zune and keep you busy (and thereforee happy?)


Support for error code 87:
1. Reset the DRM system on the computer.
Warning This procedure affects all media files on the computer that use Windows Media DRM technology. The effect of this procedure is not limited to media files that you obtained from the Zune Marketplace. If you follow this procedure, content licenses for all protected media files on the hard disk are deleted. Other providers, such as, Napster, MSN Music, and Wal-Mart, use different mechanisms for restoring licenses. If you have content from other providers, examine the appropriate license restoration policies before you continue.
To reset the DRM system on the computer, follow these steps:
a. Verify that the Show hidden files and folders option is turned on. To do this, follow these steps:

Windows Vista
a. Start Windows Explorer. To do this, click Start, type userinit.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
b. Click Organize, and then click Folder and Search Options.
c. Click the View tab.
d. Click Advanced Settings.
e. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide Protected Operating System files (recommended) check box, and then click OK.
Windows XP
a. Start Windows Explorer. To do this, click Start, click Run, type userinit.exe, and then click OK.
b. Click Tools, and then click Folder Options.
c. Click the View tab.
d. Click Advanced Settings.
e. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide Protected Operating System files (recommended) check box, and then click OK.
b. Locate the DRM folder on the computer. Typically, the DRM folder is located in the following location.
Note In these paths, drive represents the drive on which Windows is installed.
Windows Vista
• Windows Vista x86-based versions
drive:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM
• Windows Vista x64-based versions
drive:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM
Windows XP
• drive:\Documents and Settings\All Users\DRM
Note If you have upgraded from Windows 98 or from Window ME to Windows XP, the DRM folders may be located in C:\Windows\DRM.
DRM folders can be located in various locations in different versions of Windows. You can also locate the DRM data path in the registry. DRM data is located in the following section of the registry:
• x86-based versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DRM
• x64-based versions of Windows Vista:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\DRM
To locate the DRM path in the registry, follow these steps:
1. Start Registry Editor.
• Windows XP
• Click Start, click Run, type Regedit, and then click OK.
• Windows Vista
a. Click Start , type run in the Start Search box, and then click Run under Programs.
b. Type regedit.exe in the Open box, and then click OK.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
2. Look for the applicable folder based on the version of Windows that you are using.
c. Rename the DRM folder to DRMbackup.
a. Right-click the DRM folder, and then click Rename.
b. Type DRMbackup, and then press ENTER.
c. Close Windows Explorer.

If you receive an “Access denied” error message when you try to rename your DRM folder, start the computer in safe mode and log in as the computer administrator. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Restart the computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured to start multiple operating systems, press the F8 key when the Boot menu appears.
2. Select the safe mode option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.

The Boot menu appears again and the words "Safe Mode" appears in blue at the bottom of the screen.
d. Reset the DRM security component. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site, and then follow the steps to upgrade the DRM security component:
http://go.microsoft.com/FWLink?LinkID=34506

Note When you access this site through Internet Explorer on a Windows Vista-based computer, you may receive a "user account control" popup message that requires that you enter the administrator password to continue.
Note If you are running Windows Vista x64 and the Upgrade button on the site listed earlier in this step appears dimmed, you will have to start Internet Explorer by using an account on the computer that has Administrative privileges in order to continue.
e. Sign in to the Zune Marketplace. Then try to play a song to verify that the issue has been resolved.
f. Restore the setting of the Hidden files and folders option. To do this, follow these steps:

Windows Vista
a. Start Windows Explorer. To do this, click Start, type userinit.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
b. Click Organize, and then click Folder and Search Options.
c. Click the View tab.
d. Click Advanced Settings.
e. Under Hidden files and folders, click Do not show hidden files and folders, click to select the Hide Protected Operating System files (recommended) check box, and then click OK.
Windows XP
a. Start Windows Explorer. To do this, click Start, click Run, type userinit.exe, and then click OK.
b. Click Tools, and then click Folder Options.
c. Click the View tab.
d. Click Advanced Settings.
e. Under Hidden files and folders, click Do not show hidden files and folders, click to select the Hide Protected Operating System files (recommended) check box, and then click OK.
f. Etc, etc

I can almost understand how not having to deal with this kind of stuff must make some people feel listless and purposeless in life.
