iPhone + Mintyboost test

I borrowed my friend’s iPhone and did a test, the mintyboost works!

Edit: Seems like I was just lucky and in general its -not- working for people ??? Must investigate!

  1. This is very important! It’s one thing if your ipod dies on a long trip somewhere, entirely another if your phone does! (hence my research sending me here :) )

    Also: when an iphone dies, it hibernates. When connected to power it usually takes 1 to 2 minutes before it’ll let you back in. I wonder if that creates a wrinkle? Maybe I need to make one of these to find out.

  2. Has this problem been solved? Looking at Mintyboost! for my iPod Touch, and I’m hoping it will work.
