Fix iOS 8 Developer “Activation Error”

Hi everybody,

This morning I woke up and my iPhone and iPad wast blocked with this message “Activation Error”. I must admit that i had a iOS 8 beta that i download over the internet months ago.

So here you have a quick solution if you have the same problem with your devices.


1.  Put your device in DFU Mode

How to Put Your Device into DFU:

  1. Connect your computer and device together.
  2. Turn off mobile device
  3. Hold down Power button for 3 seconds
  4. Now hold down the Home button as well for 10 seconds – make sure you are holding both down
  5. Let go of the Power button but continue to press the Home button until iTunes pops up a message saying it has detected a device in recovery mode.
  6. Keep holding the Home button until you are alerted by iTunes saying that it has detected a device in Recovery Mode.

At this point your device screen should be blank with no logos showing. To get out of DFU mode, if you need to, hold the Home and Power buttons down until the Apple Logo appears on the screen. (do all this with iTunes open and then just hit restore to restore and download the latest software).

Here i attach a small video that could explain better how to do it.

2Do Post

Hi Remoters,

Have you ever forgot something because you didn´t write it down? Well I surely have that problem and I have to admit that I have it quite often…well know you have 2Do.

¿What is to do?

2Do lets you take a completely different approach to managing your tasks. With its extremely simple-to-use interface and a comprehensive and flexible set of powerful features, it lets you focus on what’s most important to you: your life. There is no wrong way of using 2Do, and unlike other to-do apps, it won’t force you in adhering to a particular task management methodology.

• Create simple tasks, or checklists and projects with sub-tasks. Tasks can have notes, attachments and multiple alarms.
• Set any task to repeat using a flexible set of options.

• In addition to built-in Focus lists that allow you to conveniently view upcoming, starred or scheduled tasks, you can create multiple lists to manage and organize your tasks.
• Smart lists let you harness the true potential of 2Do using a number of search options, filters and search pre-sets. Using Smart Lists, you can create custom views of your tasks and use them to focus-in or find frequently managed tasks.
• Furthermore, related Smart lists and Lists can be grouped together using a List Group in the order you desire.

• Quickly focus on your projects and their sub-tasks and nothing else
• Access project view directly from the list view or using keyboard shortcuts
• Focus filters and sort options can be applied separately to individual projects using Project View

• Manage tags within Tag Groups.
• Easily assign tags to tasks and vice versa.
• Leverage the easy to use yet powerful integration of Tags & Smart Lists to filter on frequently managed tasks.
• Find Used vs. Unused tags with a click.

• Stay in sync with multiple Macs and mobile devices running 2Do using your favorite sync method: Dropbox, Reminders (CalDAV), Toodledo or iCal CalDAV Server.
• Using Dropbox, you can keep multiple devices in sync seamlessly. Devices can be added / removed at any time.
• Using Reminders CalDAV sync you can keep 2Do and Reminders in sync as well as create tasks using Siri.
• Unobtrusive automatic background sync supported for Dropbox, Reminders (CalDAV) and CalDAV.

• Save your thoughts as they come to you. Using a global hotkey, Quick Entry allows you to add tasks from any app or any Space.
• 2Do does it right. Quick Entry works even if 2Do was not launched or is not running in the background.

• Works just the way Quick Look does in Finder or other built-in OS X apps. Use the spacebar to zoom in and out of a task to preview notes, multi-line titles or other details attached to your tasks.

• Stay on top of your tasks with alarms and notifications. Supports Notification Center on Mountain Lion as well as a built-in notification system which works even when 2Do is not running.
• Add multiple alarms to a single task.
• Set up automatic alarms for tasks with due dates and due times.

• Your life is a private affair. Manage it by locking out individual lists or the whole app with a single click.

• 2Do values your tasks. Periodic automatic backups are created for you which can be transferred from one machine to another or from the iOS version of 2Do to the Mac and vice versa.
• Save backups to external disks and restore from previously saved backups.

• Adding and editing tasks is blazing fast using in-place editors and popovers
• 2Do supports both mouse users, by offering them numerous little shortcuts, as well as keyboard power-users by supporting dozens of keyboard shortcuts
• 2Do has been optimized for hundreds of lists and thousands tasks, and won’t slow down over time

See hidden files MAC

Hi Remoters, Application Method The application method is probably the simplest. With a simple application such as Houdini, you can at the click of a button hide or show files or folders. As well as this it also enables you to quickly hide folders on your hard drive so they are hidden from view. This works very well if you want to hide your “important files” from people, and don’t want to use the password protect folder method. Preference Pane Method Another simple method of hiding files is using a special preference pane called Secrets. I posted about earlier. It enables you to show and hide folders using one of the many options, within the program. It also has a whole lot more, to enable you to access the deepest parts of your operating system. Terminal Method Probably the hardest to do but uses the least amount of work and has the most potential to go wrong, that is the Terminal Method. If you open up terminal (Applications > Utilities) and type the following: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder This will show you all of the hidden files and folders on your operating system. If you want to reverse the command replace TRUE with FALSE. Personally my favourite method is to use the secrets pane, I find it is the quickest method of them all. To conclude if you want to use these commands I suggest you don’t change anything. Like my parents said, look with your eyes and not with your hands. I seriously don’t recommend you change anything at all, other wise there would be dire consequences for you system. If you want to learn more about these sort of tricks I recommend, Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual or Mac OS X Unix Toolbox. Both develop this skills further and have lots of other types of tricks like this. Thanks for following, Contact us: Support@itremotesolutions.com
