    Hey Eric,

    I JB my Ipad 2 using jailbreakme.com. Im trying to get my blackberry bold 9700 connected to my ipad 2 via iBluever. Sometimes I do get a connection and the 3G internet works perfectly. But most of the time it’s not connecting and I get the error that it cant connect to the PPP-server.

    Thanks! :)

    “subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 255″
    “dependency problems -leaving unconfigured”
    and “sub-process / usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)”…
    Why is this? and, What can I do to repair this?

    Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Did exactly what I was hoping it would do. Blackberry storm 2 w/ Verizon Wireless. I am doing a happy dance now. Possibly the best $5 I’ve spent all year. Keep up the good work

    Hi, I”ve tried iBluever demo and worked fine with this settings:
    (i have a blackberry with movistar in Uruguay)
    access point: 0000
    Dial number: *99#
    Chat script: Default Non GPRS
    Autentication: ON
    Wait for SDP: ON

    Now I’ve purchased the iBluever w/on demand and I can’t get a connection and don’t know how to put the same settings.

    Can you please help me???

    • Viktor Makowski says:

      I have exactly the same problem. The User interface of the demo version is completely different to the full version. Demo Version worked, Full version does not work. Did you get any help? I am very disappointed!



  12. nacky says:

    I would like to use my iPhone as gateway via bluetooth DUN profile, because almost car navigation system (GPS) supports Bluetooth DUN only in japan.

    Do you have plans to support Bluetooth DUN-GW on iBluever?
    Are there any reason for unsupporting Bluetooth DUN-GW?

  13. Ilya says:

    Any plans to implement SPP support? I have a Philips X806, and it haven’t DUN profile :( (((

  15. Yasuhiko Hamada says:

    I bought iBluever at Cydia.
    But I can’t install it.

    My iPod touch say
    I wasn’t abele to locate file for the
    com.ericday.erichooks package. This might mean
    you need to manually fix this package.

    please send me any information.

  18. Cza says:

    I’ve got a jailbroken wifi only ipad1 (4.3.5), i’ve installed the demo ibluever to test first before i purchase, and the screen is stuck on the “retrieving daemon state” message.

    I’ve googled the problem and read thru this forum and tried suggested remedies, like completely removing ibluever and re-installing. i went as far as restoring my ipad to it’s original unjailbroken status, then repeated the whole process from scratch. can u please help me.

  21. Andrew says:

    Hi, I’m getting a notice that Activation Failed, “payment 3032193 is in the blacklist as too many devices activated”.

    I’ve switched from an iPhone 4 (which I have replaced under AppleCare several times) and then to an iPod touch 3G (also replaced once under AppleCare) as my new job does not allow camera phones.

    Is there anything you can do to unblock my payment? Thank you!

  22. Midgie says:

    Hey Eric, Is it possible to implement a little toggle so that instead of it displaying the 3g icon it’ll display the Edge/2G icon, as occasionally i connect to one of my friends phones which doesn’t have 3g, Other than that, Beautiful Program, made me stop regretting not buying a 3g enabled iTouch :D

  23. Toni says:

    Is ibluever iOS 5 compatible ?

  24. B says:

    I have tested ibluever on iOS 5 GM using an iPhone 3gs and it does not work. After install the phone stays in “Safe Mode”

    Als, the iphone will not see any devices when searching for bluetooth.


  25. B says:

    I bluever wasn’t working with iOS 5 GM before today. Some cydia updates were released today(possibly due to iOS official release today?) and ibluever is now working with iOS 5 GM.


  26. munn says:

    WhAt about ios 5? I am using ibluever for 4.2. Is it safe to upgrade to 5.0? You know… Wireless sync is a good call :)

  27. Jason says:

    Does iBluever work with the new iOS 5?

  28. Rich says:

  30. Isaac says:

    Hi, I’m trying to tether my ipad 2 to my Blackberry Bold 9780 w iBluever. But can’t figure out the Access Point Dial Number Account PW info bit. I’ve tried *99#, on Default, Default GPRS etc but nothing seems to be working. Can’t get a connection. I’m in Canada and my carrier is Bell, if that makes a difference. Help!

  31. Phil says:

    Hi I am trying to use this software to create a data connection between my TomTom and my iPhone 3GS. However it does not seem to advertise the DUN service on my iPhone and therefore my TomTom cannot find it when doing a search via Bluetooth. If this could work then there are a lot of iPhone/TomTom users that would be interested as people have been looking for a fix for years.

  47. Norbert White says:

    I have been running the latest version of Ibluver /On Demand for months and now, for some reason, it won’t connect properly:

    1. Ipad2
    2. ios 4.33
    3. SE TM506

    A. When I search for more devices the app spins and finds nothing. When I do this with my ipod touch running ios 5.01 (side by side with ipad2) it finds all the BT devices in the vicinity.

    B. ipod touch 4th Gen running 5.1 is working fine with Ibluever w/on Demand

    B. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling from cydia several times. Each time I do it all the previous devices remain in the configuration file.

    I. How can I remove ALL of Ibluver including the configuration files so that I can do a completely clean reinstall?

    II. any other insights regarding this issue?

    Eric–final note- still having license issues with my OTHER ipod touch 4th gen (I’ve emailed you about this)

  48. Alfred says:

    Hi Eric,
    I’ve just bought a new iPod Touch 4G, and when I try to activate my copy of iBluever, it says “payment 3959616 is in the blacklist as too many devices activated”. As far as I know, my iPad 1, the other iPod Touch 3G and my old iPhone 2G (FYI iBluever doesn’t work on it) have iBluever activated.

    Would you please remove me from the blacklist?


  49. Norbert White says:

    @Norbert White

    All the problems have been solved and they were result of my own stupidity.

    1. It turns out that all I needed to do was remove AirBlue and reinstall.
    2. My licensing issues are associated with another application (RoqyBT)

    Sorry for the confusion.

  50. HM says:

    I used ibluever ver 2.0.59 on ios5.0.1.For Nokia E52 this works perfectly.
    But for ht02a(htc touch diamond) wm6.1,WM6_BT_DUN.cab installed doesn’t work.
    Connecting from Windows XP and Other WM6.1 to WM6 works fine.

    For WM6 ibluever fails at bluetooth passkey exchange.
    I input 0000 on ibluever,next I input same 0000 on WM6.1,but fail,device not registered.It seems ibluever timing is too fast.
    Is there any parameter about passkey ?
