How Palm Re-Enabled iTunes Sync (The Plot Thickens)

Rédigé par Dieter Bohn le Vendredi 24 Juillet 2009

So the big question: How did Palm re-enable iTunes sync? The answer, so far as we can tell, is to go even deeper in their efforts to make the Pre look like an iPod. I just plugged my 1.1 Pre into my Mac in Media Sync mode and sure enough, it's identifying itself with an Apple USB Vendor ID:

Product ID:    0x8002
Vendor ID:    0x05ac  (Apple Inc.)
Version:    0.16
Manufacturer:    Palm Inc.

Jeffgus in our forums confirms the same: The Pre is now telling your computer that the vendor who made it is Apple. The change here is that with previous versions of webOS, the Vendor ID was "0x0830  (Palm Inc.)."  So while previously the Pre identified itself as a "mass storage device" called an iPod, now it's identifying itself as a "mass storage device manufactured by Apple" called an iPod. 

The plot has thickened, though - read on to see more about Palm calling foul to the USB authorities.
