    Date and Time mismatch

    I’m experiencing a Date and Time issue whenever MobileScrobbler tries to scrobble my music. Apparently, there’s a mismatch between my configuration and last.fm server’s. I’m running MobileScrobbler on a 1.1.3+04.03.13_G iPhone with no SIM inserted.

    I have checked the settings both on my iPhone and last.fm account but it won’t scrobbler. Any hint on this?

    Keep up the good work!

      Open the iPhone settings and go to General -> Date & Time and make sure Time Zone support is turned ON and that the time zone is set correctly.

      Turn on the debug log, and look at /var/mobile/Library/MobileScrobbler/scrobbled.log. There will be a line that says “BADTIME”, check the timestamp next to that and make sure that it shows the correct time zone. An example would be -0500 which is my time zone (GMT-5, Eastern Standard Time). If this timestamp is not correct, then there is an issue with your iPhone.

      Since you’re on 1.1.3, try to run the following command over SSH or terminal as root:
      chmod 777 /var/db/timezone

      Then reset your time zone again. I’ve seen reports that the 1.1.3 jailbreak can cause the time zone not to be stored properly until you change the permissions on that file.

        Just for the record: that worked flawlessly to me. Thanks a lot.

        PD: maybe “chown mobile:mobile /var/db/timezone” is a more security friendly command 😉

    Great app

    Great update. This app is the ONLY reason i keep jailbreaking my iPhone. Just one suggestion. Ever consider changing or abbreviating the name of the app? It’s the only app on my phone that has an ellipsis. It looks like this MobileScrobb…

    Just a suggestion.

    Been working on the same thing myself – found your post when I was looking for a way to get Boxee to index the shows. It appears that without the season and episode, its a no go… but still using them as private works until Team Boxee can get myth support working again.

    Nice post!
