View Full Version : MobileMe Showing up in Software Update XML

Jul 9, 2008, 04:54 PM
If you look at the XML file that Software Update uses to check for available updates (http://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog), an update for MobileMe is now listed at the bottom!

Of note are the MobileMe.pkg (http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/43/32/zzz061-5009/xhMJmcKHHGWGr7kKtsdpnvw4VfD8VxbSfy/MobileMe.pkg) file and the file describing the update (for English language users) (http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/43/32/zzz061-5009/xhMJmcKHHGWGr7kKtsdpnvw4VfD8VxbSfy/061-5009.English.dist).

This isn't showing up in Software Update for me, just in the XML file, so I haven't installed it manually. If anyone does, I'd be curious to know what happened!

Yes I did - it changed every reference on my mac from .mac to MobileMe - I had to close mail for the update.

For those curious it modified my accounts in Mail to use the .me.com server and lists both .mac and me.com email addresses under the same account separated by a comma.

It took less than 30 seconds to download and install - so you should be good - its only 25mb...

Does anyone know how the .mac family pack works?

If one were to get it, and had a friend wanting to use one of the 4 accounts. How does that work, does the original account have access to all sub accounts files and stuff? Or is each account separate?

I looked in the English .dist/.txt file and found some information. It should be no surprise that it recommends Mac OS X 10.5.4, and even part of the update says you need 10.5.4.

"The Mac OS X Update For MobileMe is recommended for users running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 and includes general system fixes that enhance your Mac for MobileMe."


// only install on 10.5.4
if (!plist || system.compareVersions(plist.ProductVersion, "10.5.4") < 0)

I'm still waiting to install the update, but I'm excited to start using the new features. Bring on the iTunes & iPhone updates! :)

you are correct. the family pack is meant to be used by members of the same household, under the same roof. now there's really no way for apple to check bc there's no authentication process (unlike microsoft), but try to remain honest bc apple trusts their consumers to not betray their trust. if too many people take advantage, apple will eventually add annoying authentication pocesses to all their family packs (OS X, iLife, etc)

I believe that "iTunesX" is just the name of iTunes for OS X. If you look at the distribution file (http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/25/25/061-4475/ZxSnjcqN7Wqn7RKh9387V9bWJBvknLRNJv/061-4475.English.dist) for iTunesX linked to in the catalog, you can see that it refers to iTunes 7.6.2.

Also, if you check out /Library/Receipts, you're likely to see iTunesX.pkg there, since it's been installed with the system (and/or updated to 7.6.2).

You don't have to restart - just go to the Force Quit window and just relaunch the finder.

We'll see what happens when the updates are published (or found) Not excited about the name but can't wait to see the new interface.

If it were light blue, like the MobileMe System Preferences icon is, I would like it better...

Can't you just change the icon like all the other icons in OS X? Or is it locked out? I would probably photoshop a blue one.

I got to the login page once, but now it just redirects me to the same old MobileMe about page. Is this the same thing everyone else is getting?

I'm on a trial account ATM (quickly got it to get an @mac.com email address), so I was worried it might have more/different issues.

That's how it is for everyone, the login page is flickering on and off. I actually logged in once but everything was slow and mail wouldn't load.

Mail servers were kept online as part of the maintenance - the me.com servers went live a few days ago. The iDisk is probably just the local version - your iDisk is mirrored on your local computer, to make file access quicker and still be available when you're offline.

Has the comma trick been around for a while and I just never knew it? I wanted a way to send mail without receiving it for that same address, but never could figure out a way. Well, that comma trick works in any account. I just added another email address after a comma to my Gmail account (an address I own that's through Google Apps, so not even the same domain name), and it works like a charm! Sent myself a message, it shows as from the other address, and I can pick and choose from those addresses in the Mail Compose window. This is quite nice.

Apparently MobileMe isn't working that well at the moment so I guess they're waiting until everything is safe and sound.

The box tells you to go to me.com/activate which did not work for me. I had to dig through Apple’s MobileMe FAQ to find this link, https://secure.me.com/wo/WebObjects/Signup.woa/wa/activation.

Meanwhile, I was not a .Mac customer and had never used or installed anything .Mac before so the MobileMe Updater never showed up in my Software Update (not even in the ignored updates section). So I had to search the net and found the URL (http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/31/26/zzz061-5130/gZ5bfX79JhhCXfMyvhhPFHBcmwMpJnTzMX/MobileMe.pkg) for the installer to add the MobileMe preference pane so that I can actually use MobileMe on my Mac

The MobilMe.pkg that posted is only for Leopard. On MobileMe's website it describes that it is available for anybody with 10.4.11 and newer. My guess is they are probably still working on the compatibility for 10.4.11 and newer. This would explain why some people have the program for 10.5, and why it hasn't gone public. - But it is just a guess.

Are you still running 10.4.11 like my wife is on her desktop? If so, the MobileMe software update hasn't yet appeared in software update. Let me be the first to predict 10.4.12 (with MobileMe enabler) on Tuesday. If I'm right, I'm on a roll; if I'm wrong, well, it won't be the first time . . . .

The MobileMe update 1.1 IS out. You have to launch system prefs, then click the .Mac icon, then wait a minute or so and it will prompt you to upgrade. If you click OK it will launch software update. If you just go straight to Software Update it won't appear at all. I thought that was a weird way of doing it, but it seems to work...

As a side note, after running the update it took about 15-20 minutes before i was able to log back in to MobileMe from system prefs.

Having struggled all day yesterday with wife's iPhone, & trying to get it to synch with iDisk & searching for the elusive Mobileme (!) FINALLY I just got advised of the update. It is 10.15pm UK time.
Yesterday I got lots of 'server not responding' messages as I tried to login to MobileMe so hopefully Apple now have it sorted. I guess the overload perhaps was due to new 'iPhoners' trying to synch.
Good luck,

I was able to connect from .Mac (now Mobile Me) in system preferences and am able to sync. I'm also able to connect to the account from my iPhone. However I still cannot log in via the web interface.

That happened to me and you have to click forgot password and reset it to something different than the original password you chose. It seems this problem was common some who have registered for mobileme with the trial when mobileme first came out.

Hey. Thanks so much for that resetting password suggestion.

I bought a Black 16gb iPhone from the Apple Store in Lakeside and purchased Mobileme at the same time as you get £20 off. After setting up MobileMe I could not log onto the mail server via Mac Mail (although it worked logging in from the website albeit with the email not working.) I tried everything but no good!

I just reset the password and it worked straight away! Thanks for that. You've saved me alot of hassle. I was even going to resort to calling Apple tomorrow.

Nice one. Cheers! :)
