MGG 445: Beware the Mobile Documents Folder

Dave and John are back, as usual, for this Sunday evening show, helping you answer your pesky Mac and iOS questions as well as using their own experiences to teach valuable lessons. This week Dave spent far too much time troubleshooting a crashing iPod. He even got it replaced and it was still crashing, which got very interesting. Dave finally figured it out and will share the solution in the show. All that and more in this week's Mac Geek Gab!

I too had an issue with springboard on iPhone 5 about 3 or 4 months ago.  It would crash every time I arranged the icons on the home screen.  It would move the icon and then when I hit the home button it would reboot and go to the apple logo to restart.  I did a normal backup and restore and that seemed to fix the issue for some reason. 

Great troubleshooting dave.  Love those stories smile


BTW, I leave my send diagnostics unchecked but it does show me the logs/data.  There are recent dates there too.
