Force Reset iTunes Sync

Is your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch hanging while syncing?  Here’s what I do to force a reset of sync services…

First things first.  You’ll need a copy of PhoneView.

Connect your iPhone to your Mac

Open PhoneView

Go to Settings > Show entire disk.

On your iPhone, using PhoneView…

…delete the following folders:

  • Purchases
  • Downloads
  • iTunes Control > Sync > Media
  • iTunes Control > Music

…delete the following files from iTunes Control > iTunes:

  • MediaLibrary.sqlitedb
  • MediaLibrary.sqlitedb-shm
  • MediaLibrary.sqlitedb-wal

Reboot your Mac. Reboot your iPhone…

In other news, I FINALLY cut the last remnants of my Indian foot injury out of my toe.  Took almost a year to get that toe nail to fix itself…  Gross.

Is this for real?

I’d rather watch spec Miata racing than this…  I mean, it’s pretty spectacular driving, but what’s the point of racing an electric car that goes 147 mph?  I drove faster than that on my way to Eddie’s shop this morning.
