Apple posted a link (http://developer.apple.com/iphone/program/) to the iPhone SDK download, but unfortunately the servers are unable to cope with the traffic at this time.

So, you may have to wait a little while, but the SDK should be available at:

This is the start of a whole new world :)

Can't wait... Just hope 2.0 will be unlockable :)

I think we'll see the end of June bring v2.0 and the 3G phone. wouldn't that be handy, 3G for all this new downloading of apps.

Guess those 8-core X-serves don't handle THAT much traffic no matter well how many of them you have.

Wont we be seeing SDK apps on the iphone via installer in a few days then? you dont need to wait until June to make apps.... Just need to wait to publish them.

I had pre-registered as an iPhone developer. The site went down before the press conference today. It must be flooded with requests for the SDK because I've been trying for about 45 minutes with no luck.

That sounds like a good thing to me.

(Hope the speculation about 3G is right too):D

The simulator feature is mind-blowing. I've done a bunch of human interface development at work, and the first thing I've always done is create a simulator for the hardware that will run on a desktop. Life tends to be easy after that as it beats the snot out of trying to download to physical hardware or run a debugger/ICE.

I just hope the beta 2.0 firmware is included (without which we will be stuck simulating vs. running on the new hardware).

There was discussion about the ONLY way to get to the iPhone would be via the store, but I am sure that doesn't apply to the SDK. SO I would suspect you cold email and app to someone and have them load it on their iPhone using their SDK.

No wonder! Do those screens imply that its 2 gb cause its not just an iPhone SDK? Its all of XCode which includes the iPhone SDK?

I agree, the battery prices are insane. Still, I can't understand why Apple would seal the battery in the air, which is otherwise a really slick notebook!

In other news, still no access to the link I was provided. ADC Select is working fine, though!

Mar 6, 2008, 03:46 PM
i was at school and I didnt carry my charger today, reading the live coverage for the event, then downloading and installing the sdk took up whatever battery was left. Now I am back home, so if there are any screenshot requests let me know.
As for the mirror, I wont be able to provide it coz I dont want to upload that 2GB to another server choking up my internet connection, sorry.

Almost 3 hours of hitting refresh and trying every backdoor I can think of and still no luck getting the SDK. I even went so far as to try and sign-up for the $99 commercial developer link.

The servers are either down or busy.

That's kind of cool but flies in the face of the 2.0 beta firmware being needed. It would be sweet if it could.

Did you do anything special to download the SDK on your end, or just click on the email link apple sent you?

go to http://developer.apple.com/iphone/download.action?path=/iphone/iphone_sdk/iphone_sdk.dmg
if it doesn't work login and click download iphone sdk, an email will be sent to your email account, click on the link and try to get through the net traffic. If all goes well you will be downloading the SDK, if not you probably have a screen in front of you that says theres and error or something like that. No worries, just go to http://developer.apple.com/iphone/download.action?path=/iphone/iphone_sdk/iphone_sdk.dmg again and it should work this time.

*** AN EASY WAY TO GET AROUND THE NET TRAFFIC IS TO REFRESH THE SITE CONSTANTLY. CLICK REFRESH AND WAIT UNTIL IT COMES BACK WITH AN ERROR AND THEN CLICK IT AGAIN, YOU MIGHT HAVE TO PRESS IT VERY QUICKLY BUT YOU WILL GET THROUGH, YOU'LL KNOW ITS WORKED ONCE YOUVE CLICK REFRESH AND IT DOESNT SHOW AN ERROR, BE PATIENT IT WILL LOAD. ALSO IF A PAGE LOADS WITH NO PICTURES JUST CLICK THE BACK BUTTON AND CLICK THE LINK AGAIN IF THE PAGE LOADS, IF NOT JUST REFRESH, REFRESH, REFRESH.

right, but downloading the SDK, I assumed you were already logged in as a developer.

More than 5 hours later and I can't get a decent connection to ADC. Servers keep coming and going, especially the authentication server.

None of the short cuts have worked either, but they are much appreciated anyway.

Help!

There I am - happy as a little child, after waiting for almost a year to get to this point.

After a 2Gb download, I come to discover that the SDK won't run on my machine at all! I have a Aluminium PB/Darwin with Tiger, but the Readme says it will ONLY run on an Intel machine with Leopard installed!

Before you start downloading, make sure you have a system up to specs. These are the specs from the Readme:

Compatibility with Mac OS X Versions

iPhone SDK will run on Intel-based Macs running Mac OS X v10.5.2 and later.

Sniff. Anyone want a second-hand SDK? As new...

It isn't entirely that.. I have a 30 Mbps connection here. The 2GB download would take me less than 10 minutes. But all the speed in the world won't help if you can't get to the file.

Glad it is working for somebody because it has been 6+ hours for me and I can't get to the iPhone site without some sort of server error.

OK, let's see, 8+ hours later and I'm downloading.

The links that came in with the iPhone DC sign-up are dead. Generally they either state that a server can't be found, or they send a "sorry" message.

I looked at some of the failures Safari was reporting, and as usual, some of them simply didn't make sense, including one complaining that the server connect.apple.com could not be found (I could ping it). For some strange reason after confirming I could ping the site, I just typed in that url, and it brought me to the usual ADC sign-on screen, or so I thought. This time after entering my info it asked me to read/sign a user agreement from January (one I remember agreeing to before). This time when I agreed, I was dropped into the iPhone site and was clearly signed on.

So I'm happy now, downloading the SDK with a few minutes to go.

Really sounds like one server talking to another server and getting lost in the translation.

Hope others have better luck than I have.

I have spent several hours with the iPhone SDK and have create a few small applications. For this Beta Release the InterfaceBuilder doesn't yet support iPhone, and for now you have to build the UI elements by hand in the code. Not too bad, but I wish I had the visual designer tools from InterfaceBuilder, since it is much easier.

So far, it has been pretty easy understanding the sample code that they have published. A lot of the cool features we learn to love in the iPhone is very easy to program, ex: UITableView, Flip animation, NavigationController, etc....

I couldn't install the applications on the iPhone, I was able to only run in the simulator so far. I guess I need to be accepted first in the iPhone Dev program, and them upload a CSR generated by KeyChain to the site, to get my code-sign certificate (read on the docs...)

Can't wait to try these apps in my iPhone....until then I will keep browsing over the documentation.

Thanks,

Dang...

I started checking in on the live-feeds around 1 PM Eastern. It's now about 3 AM...14 hours later.

I'm happy to say that I've just gotten the first application up and running under the simulator (code name "Aspen") in about 2 hours. :)

Stupidness on my part that wasted a couple of hours: :o

1) Assuming that the example applications in the Developers folder were for the iPod ... they were not.

2) For some reason the first time I started XCODE it offered to update various document subscriptions, which I did. It wasn't until I left Xcode one or two times and started it again, that it presented me with an iPhone or 10.5.2 development choice. I chose iPhone, then things started to make sense.

3) Finding the sample programs after step 2, gave me disk images, however the image, once mounted, would not allow a build -- it was write protected. Once I figured out that I needed to copy the files from the image to another location that had write ability, then I was all set.

So final score...time lost to ADC servers 8 hours. Time lost to my stupidity, 2 hours. Getting things working after that....5 min. Woot!

Pretty slick tool set, especially for a Beta. Now if I can just retain what I learned at 3 AM and do something useful over the weekend, I'll be a happy camper.

Good luck everybody

still cant download it!!

why bother with apple anymore.

I'd be real concerned that the issue is with your account, not the servers.

After eight frustrating hours of hitting the download link, signing onto developer.apple.com and trying everything else I could think of, I finally went to the site "connect.apple.com" and logged on there. When I did, it went deeper into the rabbit hole than any other login last night, and finally asked me to agree to some software agreement (one I thought I had already agreed to months ago). Anyway, once I agreed to that, I was able to go to the download link and grab the SDK.

Now keep in mind I had entered my ID and password hundreds of times that night as a result of trying to get the SDK, and NEVER was asked in those attempts to sign anything. In fact I was pretty sure I never really successfully signed onto the iPhone section. Even when I signed onto developer.apple.com (the usual ADC site), nothing positive happened. It was only after is signed on a connect.apple.com that things started working.

My guess is that there are multiple servers involved in the process and one or more of them didn't have the right sign-off, which prevented me from reaching the iPhone Developement Center. Going into connect.apple.com must have fixed that.

Give it a try!

I had an issue around 6:30PM last night. The site kept timing out.

I tried again around 7:15PM, it started downloading on the first try and shockingly, it was extremely fast for the size of the download.

Keep trying, I suspect everyone is trying to get it. I can't believe there's that many Mac developers out there :)

One interesting note, there's a tip to turn on documentation synch'ing for iPhone doc's to get the latest updated documentation. The page shows you how to turn it on. Take a look at the version numbers in the left panel on the screenshot.

Every time I download this damn thing, I get 2,147,487,717 bytes of data and then it stops. Doing the math, that is only 2Gb, not 2.1GB.

Yeah - you can't :p

The iPhone SDK is part of Xcode - Apple's own programming program (lol, but you know what I mean). As Xcode is only available on Macs, so too is the SDK. Sorry mate.

You could OSX86.org and boot OS X onto your PC, but it isn't worth it.

If it's any consolation, it took me 11 hours to get it too lol.
