    So I got my replacement iPhone 4 yesterday on firmware 4.2.1 and I jailbroke it using the tethered jailbreak. When I tried to log into gamecenter today using my apple account, it didn't recognize that I already had an account and tried to make me set up a new account. Near the top, it says"SANDBOX (1P42). Anybody know what this is and how to solve this problem?

    I remember seeing Sandbox in GameCenter when iOS 4.1 was in beta, but sandbox went away when 4.1 went GM and was not present in iOS 4.2 betas.

    Unfortunately I don't know how to solve it, sorry.

    My cousin just got a new one and her gamecenter was saying the same thing. I'm not sure what it means though.

    The problem is because of the new AppSync 4.0+, probably hackulous will fix it at some point.

    There are so many reason on the net...yet this one seems to make the most sense.

    this just also happened to me today. I had the 4.2.1 tethered JB and found the new untethered JB. I went on with it and all went well until I noticed this Sandbox problem. It's weird cause sandbox mode in GC is for developers, and I'm not even one :confused:

    My case is different...
    I only have this problem with ONE app: Dungeon Defenders: First Wave
    Started to happen after I updated the game to it's last version...
    The other apps are working normal with gamecenter...

    I'm on jailbreak 4.1, btw...

    I had the same problem with a few of my iDevices this past weekend too.

    Just sign out of game center, start up a game that uses game center, exit that game, then log back into game center and your regular stats and everything should be the same

    I've had this error all weekend. Ever since updating to 4.2.1 and jailbreaking with GreenPoison. I've tried logging in and out about 50 times, in all combination of restarts with no luck. I tried restoring 3 times with no longer either. The only thing the temporarily got me out of the sandbox was signing into game center after a restore but before the restore sync. But then I'd of course lose all my game saves and settings. So I ran the sync and once again...same thing. So if you don't mind starting completely over then maybe you can get your profile back but if not...then well it looks like you're stuck in the sandbox with me. Let 's how for a solution soon.

    - I had the same problem and had to restore and re-jb. But I managed to fix it, as per my post above.
    - I did 2 things differently - I used the latest version of Greenpoison (which apparently after 1 day was already 2 versions newer), and I didn't use AppSync 4.0+ (or anything from Hackulous).

    If you want AppSync, it seems like (as mentioned from the link I posted above as well) the consolidated 4.0+ version from Hackulous seems to break game center for me.

    I recommend a mirror Cydia Source, look for AppSync 4.2 from those. It worked forme.

    This. Its AppSync that causes Sandbox problems.

    Can anyone else confirm that this worked for them? On one of my restores I tried accessing game center post jailbreak but pre installing ANYTHING and I still couldn't get out of the sandbox. But that WAS using an old GreenPoison since I of course didn't know it jumped two versions in two days ;). I'd just like to hear from any others before I go through all the work again! Thanks much! And thanks opq for the info. I hope it works for all!

    Didn't work for me, :Mega sad face: Anyone else?

    Anybody know if there is a jailbreak/appsync file of some sort that keeps getting restored when I restore my phone that could be breaking game center? I'm sure I could manually go in and change it if needed.

    Just wanted to post something that worked for me.

    1. Quit all apps
    2. Open GC
    3. Create dummy sandbox account
    4. Log out of dummy account
    5. Quit GC
    6. Start GC enabled game
    7. It should log you in to the dummy GC account
    8. Quit the game
    9. Open GC
    10. Sign out of dummy account
    11. Sign in to original account
    12. Start GC enabled game again to verify login updated

    Carry on.. ;)

    This worked first time. Thank you.

    Thank You... This Worked

    this worked for me the 2nd time. i skipped #4 the second time so i would stay logged in when i opened a GC enabled app. the first time, #4 forced me to login in to the GC app when opened, which started the process over again.

    so yeah, i skipped #4 but everything else went fine.
