Sorry but I don't understand "...only appears as few as download speed.":o

Could you explain it differently?

Yep I can confirm too since last night  the "progress" bar on the download section isn't visible and download speed is a bit slow. Too much traffic on the server perhaps?

No. There is a surge of Gremlins in the interwebs because it is their mating season.  :o

Google Translate:

Spanish: Hay un aumento de Gremlins en el interwebs, ya que es la temporada de apareamiento

German: Es ist ein Anstieg der Gremlins in den interwebs weil sie ihre Paarungszeit ist

Haitian Creole: Gen yon vag nan Gremlins nan interwebs yo paske li se sezon kwazman yo

Chinese (Simplified): 有一个激增的interwebs中的捣蛋鬼,因为这是他们的交配季节

Arabic: هناك موجة من Gremlins في interwebs لأنه موسم التزاوج

I was downloading apps yesterday and came across without the progress bar, but even with slow download rate showed the app machine normally before.

FYI guys, the whited00r Team is made entirely of unpaid volunteers and we do not have any millionaire sugar daddy making donations.

The custom whited00r 6 firmware & the awesome App Time Machine are free. The only money we get is peanuts from Adsense. (so give us some peanuts  ;))

So the budget for servers is small & I know there is a download speed limitation for apps but do not know exactly what it is because the App Time Machine Store is not a part of the WD Team. They are a secretive bunch and never post in our forums.

I just downloaded a game using App Time Machine on my iPhone 3G whited00r 6 using WIFI on a network that has a max download speed of 200 kb/s after reading this thread.

While there is no progress bar (so what?), I could see a change in the download speed & the amount of data downloaded as illustrated in the combined screen captures below.



The app downloaded OK & is running fine. So considering what it cost me for the whole firmware & features shebang, I am pretty happy.

If the App Time Machine small team decided to remove the progress bar to save some server traffic for the benefit of all then it's OK IMO. If it's a bug, I am sure they will fix it eventually or not.

Depending on where you live on the planet, the time of the peak downloading load from the Store varies. So if in your morning time it is slow then try at night or vice versa.  ;)

Pierre Yeah, it's a shame, because with the bar could we know when the download was finished. Well at least it's still working perfectly.

Well I could see when the download was finished as the red badge in the bottom disappeared and it said Installing app xyz. Compared to Cydia always reloading crap & whatnot it is a lightning bolt!

If you have queued 3 apps, the badge will say 3, then 2, then 1 then disappear when all are finished downloading.

Maybe App Time Machine could post a PayPal donation button in this thread and the money would be used to hire some geeks to fix the big "bug".  ;)

1- Could be a temporary server problem. Try again later.

2- Could be a bad app (you did not say the name), try an other one.

There is as of this morning 456 free compatible apps on ATM.

Say thanks & move on IMO.  ;)

I do not get it. You are currently saying in an other thread that you are downgrading baseband and here that you have app downloading problems?  :o

Downloads freezing ... This takes a long time to install any app.

1- Read Reply #10, only 3 posts above yours.  ::)

2- Check your internet connection speed with speedtest or something else. You are using 3G data or WIFI, right?

3- Hard Reset often solve many problems: hold both Home & Power buttons until the Apple logo appears and let go of the buttons & smell the roses while it is doing it's thing.  :)

No worries, hard reset will not change any of your info, tweaks & apps on the device.




And thank you in advance for reporting back in this thread.  8)
