      Description

      I've been unable to download modules. I'm a long-time Sword user on Linux, Mac, Windows, etc. and a system admin. I could get the list of modules fine with a refresh, and the download starts, but stalls and never finishes. I first tried to download MHC (which I know is big) and let it go for 30 minutes. I'm on a 10 Mbps connection with my wifi access point 10 feet away, full signal. This is on a 1st gen iPod Touch with iPhone OS 3.1 something (latest for 1st gen). I also tried the ESV which should have downloaded in under a minute, and it's been thirty minutes. The display shows
      ===========================
      Module Download
      (progress bar about halfway)

      Downloading (6 of 6 files)
      (progress bar about 2/3 done)

      Installing: English Standard Version
      ===========================

      I'll let it sit but I have to go out shortly and will have to kill it. Oh and there is no "cancel" button, I have to kill the app.

      Since I haven't been able to get any of my preferred versions/aids on here I can't comment on the app itself, hopefully I can get something installed besides the KJV. I do hope this works as it would be awesome to have the Sword libraries on my iPod Touch.

      Thanks!

      Fred

        Okay, this is still unresolved, but I was able to work around it by using Module Maintainer mode. I downloaded MHC, ESV, LEB, WEB, NETfree modules on my Mac, started up Module Maintainer mode on my iPod, and then used Safari on my Mac to install them. The whole thing took about 10 minutes, so now I can use PocketSword. But the "easy" way is broken, at least for me. Thanks! Fred

        Weirder and Weirder. I did a hard power off/reboot on my iPod Touch and tried and successfully downloaded and installed Scofield notes. Thinking things were fixed, I tried German Elberfelder 1905 bible - same stall happened, waited and waited and it did not move or complete. Tried Module maintainer mode and it installed in seconds...

        That would be iOS 3.1.3, I believe.
        Hmmm, doesn't sound good - and sounds really weird.
        I had some ideas, but as you've explained it more, they are discarded. I'm really glad you discovered the "hard" way of installing modules & that's working.
        I'll have to have a look around to try to figure out what is going on, but thanks for the detailed report - it really makes it much easier to try to figure out what's going on.
