    So I jailbroke the other day with the latest Absynthe 0.4 and now none of my songs via iTunes Match will play.

    Anyone else got this issue and is there a fix?

    I had the same problem with Siri not playing ANY of my playlists.

    1. Turn off iTunes Match
    2. Wipe ALL music off your phone
    3. Re-sync all music back to phone
    4. Turn iTunes Match back on
    5. Profit

    Glad I could be of help! I didn't know the solution when I ran into the problem, but this DEF works and the BEST part is, you don't lose the JB :cool:

    How do you "wipe" all music off the phone? and why would you "sync" all music back on to the phone? Can you please clarify? I've been having a horrible time with my iTunes Match and JB iPhone...

    Sometimes the files (music) gets corrupted or simply "won't play"

    By "wiping" the phone (syncing it, uncheck ALL music) the music will be gone.

    By resyncing you'll get all of the music back to the device. Then once Match is enabled again, you'll have ALL of the music you just synced as opposed to going through albums and clicking all the cloud icons and "download all"


    This only really needs to be done if you feel your music is corrupted or it simply won't play, or skips songs.

    This was a problem during the iOS 5 betas as well, and even in isolated cases on the Golden Master, long before the current Jailbreak came out. The only way to truly fix the problem is to erase all of your music and re-download it from iTunes Match, or turn off iTunes Match and sync your music via iTunes.

    Not sure how or why, but it has been well documented for quite some time.

    So iTunes Match is basically charging you to play your own music that you already paid for on iTunes..lol

    In a roundabout way, yes, but it also includes cloud storage of 25,000 songs from your library that do not include music you purchased from iTunes. $25 a year to pretty much carry around my entire music library on demand? Seems fairly cheap.

    No. If you downloaded music from iTunes you can download it again without match.

    I only purchased two albums from iTunes, but have close to 20K songs in iTunes. Many ripped a long time ago at low quality and the discs long gone. For $25, I was able to upgrade the sound of my lower quality songs. Upgrade 1000's of songs to high quality for $25. Well worth it to me. Doubt i'll renew next year though.
