Roll back to a previous Pandora version?

    On my iPhone 3G, I stayed jailbroken at 3.1.3 and never updated to the latest version of Pandora. The sound quality on 3G was PERFECT and there weren't so many ads. I purchased an iPhone4 today, updated to iOS4.2, redownloaded my apps, and the sound quality of Pandora seems much poorer with tons of ads.

    This is SUPER disappointing, as I always have Pandora playing through my car stereo while driving, and it was always near CD quality.

    Please tell me there is a way to roll back to a previous Pandora version? :(

    Pandora > Settings > Higher quality audio > On.

    I personally don't think the ads are in the way but if you can't stand them and you're jailbroken on 4.2 then you can stop them from occurring (side affect is that you get unlimited skips). I'm pretty sure posting how is against the forum rules since it would circumvent their revenue stream. Google will help.

    I would like to avoid jailbreaking. HQ audio is on.

    Interesting. I find it's the same quality as on my Mac. Wait, are you a subscriber of Pandora One? It has higher quality audio and I don't think they stream that to phones.

    If you aren't willing to jailbreak and you don't have the version you like still in iTunes then you're sunk.

    I think I found the previous version in my recycle bin. I dragged it into itunes and replaced it. It's 3.1.2

    Next time I take a drive I will do a sound quality test :)

    I don't know exactly which version I was using before I bought the iPhone 4, I'm assuming it was the one in the trash. Not sure what bitrate it streams at either. I could just tell the difference by ear, or maybe I am just OCD!

    Yup, sound quality is awesome again and there are less ads :D

    PM me if you want the .ipa file.
