Is it possible to install an iOS upgrade from a computer other than your sync computer?

Hello,
Is it possible to install an iOS upgrade from a computer other than your sync computer? I usually sync to my tower at home, but only have access to my laptop now. My laptop is authorized to the same iTunes account as the tower. If I do a software update for the iPhone on the laptop's copy of iTunes, will it wipe away my music that isn't from the iTunes store, etc?
Thanks,
Will

Yes, but all your data will be replaced by whatever is on this other computer. So if you don't want that to happen wait and install on the computer with which the device is normally synced.

  • Can I install ios5 from a computer other than my primary computer?

    I have downloaded the Lion update in the office and would like to install ios5 on my iphone and ipad before going home, which is where my "primary" computer is, i.e., the one I use to sync.  Can I install ios5 from any computer or does it have to be the one I have always used for syncing?

    You can but if your office computer does not have your backups and iTunes Library from your home computer then the device contents will be wiped. I'd wait until you got home.

  • Can I use an OSX 10.6.3 install disk to upgrade from OSX 10.5.8

    Can I use an OSX 10.6.3 install disk to upgrade from OSX 10.5.8

    Yes. And, see below:
    Upgrade Paths to Snow Leopard, Lion, and/or Mountain Lion
    You can upgrade to Mountain Lion from Lion or directly from Snow Leopard. Mountain Lion can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $19.99. To access the App Store you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later installed.
    Upgrading to Snow Leopard
    You can purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard — Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.
    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.
         Snow Leopard General Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor
           2. 1GB of memory
           3. 5GB of available disk space
           4. DVD drive for installation
           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;
               fees may apply.
           6. Some features require Apple’s iCloud services; fees and
               terms apply.
    Upgrading to Lion
    If your computer does not meet the requirements to install Mountain Lion, it may still meet the requirements to install Lion.
    You can purchase Lion by contacting Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service — this includes international calling numbers. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax.  It's a download. You will get an email containing a redemption code that you then use at the Mac App Store to download Lion. Save a copy of that installer to your Downloads folder because the installer deletes itself at the end of the installation.
         Lion System Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7,
               or Xeon processor
           2. 2GB of memory
           3. OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
           4. 7GB of available space
           5. Some features require an Apple ID; terms apply.
    Upgrading to Mountain Lion
    To upgrade to Mountain Lion you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or Lion installed. Purchase and download Mountain Lion from the App Store. Sign in using your Apple ID. Mountain Lion is $19.99 plus tax. The file is quite large, over 4 GBs, so allow some time to download. It would be preferable to use Ethernet because it is nearly four times faster than wireless.
         OS X Mountain Lion — System Requirements
           Macs that can be upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion
             1. iMac (Mid 2007 or newer) — Model Identifier 7,1 or later
             2. MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer) —
                 Model Identifier 5,1 or later
             3. MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             4. MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer) — Model Identifier 2,1 or later
             5. Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             6. Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             7. Xserve (Early 2009) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
    To find the model identifier open System Profiler in the Utilities folder. It's displayed in the panel on the right.
    Are my applications compatible?
             See App Compatibility Table — RoaringApps.

    Hello there ypda75,
    I have an article here that has a list of settings to get from your Email provider so you can make sure that the settings are correct. It has troubleshooting steps to try as well. Also I would recommend restarting the router, and/or testing a differnet network.
    iOS: Unable to send or receive email
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3899.
    If you are unable to send or receive email, try the following steps:
    Restart the iOS device.
    Tap Safari and attempt to load a webpage to ensure that the device has Internet access. If you're unable to load a webpage, try the Wi-Fi assistant.
    Try an alternative Internet connection.
    If your email is provided by your Internet provider, try connecting from the home network.
    If your iOS device has an active cellular data plan, try to disable Wi-Fi:  Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn off Wi-Fi.
    If not, try a different Wi-Fi network.
    Log in to your email provider's website to ensure that the account is active and the password is correct.
    Delete the account from Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and then add the email account again on the iOS device.
    If you're still unable to send or receive email, contact your email provider and verify the account settings are correct. You will need to gather this information (PDF).
    All the very best,
    Sterling

  • My trash won't empty since I upgraded to Lion. Other than using rm -rf ~/.Trash/* in the terminal what can I do. Reparing permissions didn't hpl.  regards  robin

    My trash won't empty since I upgraded to Lion.
    Other than using rm -rf ~/.Trash/* in the terminal what can I do. Reparing permissions didn't hpl.
    regards
    robin

    I have the same problem. I can put things into the trash, but when i empty the trash it makes the crumple noise like its throwing it away and the files stay in the trash and the icon stays full. I have 10.7.2. I also have Parallels installed on my machine.
    Before this problem, I was unable to add files to my trash can and then I removed this program called CleanMyMac, which I guess wasn't compatible with Lion, and now I can at least add items to the trash can. It seems I am having a lingering issue due to that program.
    I have a case with Apple Senior Support Analysts and they can't figure it out...
    Please help!! I do not want to format and start all over just to empty my trash can
    I also do not want to install Trash It (which would empty the trash i've heard) but will not resolve my issue only cover it up.
    Thanks!!

    Is there a way to make a video call from my iPhone 4 to a non apple phone? Also is it possible to transfer pics using bluetooth from iPhone to other company mobiles? Its a great phone but sometimes I feel struck inside it.

    You'd need an app like Skype to video call with other phones.
    Data transfer is not supported via bluetooth and iphone to iphone is not supported at all.

    What are possible causes for frequent loss of wireless mouse connectivity other than the batteries ?

    Wi-Fi or another interference source. Try turning off the Wi-Fi and see if the problems continue. If that solves the problem, see if you can set your Wi-Fi to run in the 5 GHz range.

  • I upgraded from v3 to v6. Firefox Sync lost hundreds of my bookmarks - it kept all the organised ones, but lost all the unsorteds. I'm now facing an inquiry at work, and could cheerfully kill Mozilla. However, is there any way to fix this?

    I upgraded from v3 to v6. Firefox Sync lost hundreds of my bookmarks - it kept all the organised ones, but lost all the unsorted's. I'm now facing an inquiry at work, and could cheerfully kill Mozilla. However, is there any way to fix this?

    I did read what you posted, and will point out once more - the organised bookmarks were kept, the unsorted - the majority - were lost. I tried accessing them THROUGH sync as I couldn't find them before I started sync and thought that might help. Really didn't. Sync was only loaded with version 6, never used it on 3. Updated from 3 to 6; tried to find bookmarks. All unsorted ones GONE. accessed sync; no bookmarks. went back to three. never shifting again, version 6 is a quick trip to hell. Should have known not to trust the program to preserve bookmarks, blame myself for being so bloody stupid to trust it to keep my information safe. Moral: always save multiple backups.

    If the photos were synced to the iPod you have to unsync them. Unsyncing is also covered here

  • Can I install Windows 7 upgrade (from XP) to BootCamp?

    I currently use Snow Leopard and have a Boot Camp partition running Windows XP Professional. It was a pain to install, because I had the upgrade version, and you can't eject CDs from the optical drive during the installation process to put the old CD in to prove you already own a copy of Windows. Let's just say I found a way around that and was able to install XP which currently works fine.
    I am now considering trying out Windows 7. If I get it, it will be the upgrade version as well. Will it be possible to install that to Boot Camp from XP? I know there are issues upgrading from XP to Windows 7, in that it has to be a custom install. I don't care about losing Windows settings and files; in fact, I would much prefer to do a clean install. Does anyone know if that is possible using an upgrade CD or will I have the same problem of not being able to eject the CD to put an old one in during the installation process?

    If you thought what I was saying was off-base, perhaps you still don't understand my question, since none of your answers has addressed it.
    I don't want to do the "upgrade" process. I was very familiar, even before you posted several links saying the same thing over and over, that you can't do that from XP to Win 7 anyway, but even if you could you wouldn't want to. I get the difference of upgrade v. migrate, etc., etc. Please don't link to it again. That is not my question.
    All I want to know is this: If you are using an upgrade CD to install Windows 7 (as opposed to a full install CD, and not to be confused with the "upgrade" process), will there be an issue with switching it out during installation and not being able to get it out of the optical drive?
    When I clean-installed XP to Boot Camp using an upgrade XP CD, you couldn't do that, because it needed proof of a prior copy of Windows during the installation process and there was no way to switch out the discs. This was a weird glitch of needing to eject from the optical drive during the installation process but having no way to do so at that particular point in the installation. It had nothing to do with anything about Windows licenses, upgrade pathways, etc. It was a technical oddity because of the hardware.
    From Apple support site re. XP and Vista with Boot Camp:
    "Important: _You must use a single full-install Windows installation disc._ Service pack 2 is required for Windows XP installations. Do not install an earlier version of Windows XP and attempt to update it later to service pack 2. Use only 32-bit versions of Windows."
    You don't need to answer this. BlueDevilKurz somehow understood exactly what I was asking and responded several posts ago as well as anyone can until Windows 7 is actually released and we know for sure. But if you want to, it's a Yes or No question, with a second bonus Yes or No question.
    1. Can I use an upgrade Windows 7 CD/DVD (rather than full install media) to install Windows 7 on a Boot Camp partition that currently has XP?
    2. Can I use an upgrade Windows 7 CD/DVD (rather than full install media) to install Windows 7 on a Boot Camp partition that is currently empty (no XP installed)?
