    Default latest model of Apple Digital AV Adapter need iOS 5.1 update to work?



    Hi,

    I just recently purchased the Apple Digital AV Adapter for my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. When I plugged it in, a message pop up telling me that I need to update my iOS to 5.1. I'm on 5.0.1 and I really don't want to update my iOS for obvious reasons. I even tried it on a new iPhone 4S with iOS 5.0.1 (meaning not jailbroken) and it is still asking for the update.

    Does the latest model really need the iOS 5.1 update to work? How about the old models? Anybody tried it with iOS 5.0.1?

    Thanks.

    I'm not too sure why that happens, but I doubt the AV adapter requires a particular firmware for it to work.

    But out of curiosity, why don't you want to update your non jb device to 5.1? Or are you planning to jb it in the future and thus don't want to update?

    It DOES require iOS 5.1 as per this URL: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4108?v...S&locale=en_US

    See bullet #5 under Troubleshooting.

    I have the exact same problem. Does anyone know of a workaround to make the adapter work on 5.0.1?
    I tried the tweak resupported from Cydia, but it still didn't work.

    mine worked even without an update. not sure if it is the latest model of the av adapter. But i bought this just a few days ago, there's a possibility that this is the old stock though.

    It seems you should jailbreak before you can see the video.

    ^No need for that. Just plug-in the av adapter and plug the other end to your tv, that's all.
    Mirroring feature is only available for iphone 4s and ipad 2 or later and both these devices can enjoy the benefit of playing video at 1080p as compared to previous models which can only play 720p and wont support video mirroring.
