For previously registered users in 2021: The 2021 app has expired as of March 14, 2022. The app will either crash immediately when opened, or will not open with the message "my MC" Is No Longer Available. First, try going to https://setonsylvan.github.io on your device and tap the Download button. Watch the install progress on the home screen. It should install over the existing installation and leave your settings and data intact. If you receive "Unable to download app", re-send me your UDID (sorry for the inconvenience). I've removed some old UDIDs as people have upgraded phones to stay under the 100 device limit.

Caution: this may be shut down or stop working at any time by Apple, Ceton, or (most likely) a future iOS update that makes the app incompatible in some way

For new users:

Requirements: An iPhone or iPad running iOS 8.0 or later.

What you need to do:
  • Find your device UDID. If you have a device released after late 2018, use a method on this link: https://deciphertools.com/blog/2014_11_ ... hone_udid/
    If you have an earlier device, you can use the above link, or this website: https://betafamily.com/superudid
    If you leave the browser window open on your computer, it will automatically update with your UDID information after you complete the process on your device, so you can easily copy and paste it from your computer. It will install a "profile" on your device to read the UDID, but it will automatically remove itself afterwards.
    If you're not comfortable with this method, use the methods on the first link.
  • PM me the UDID and whether it's an iPhone or iPad. Please do not post it in this topic!
  • Visit the above website after I PM you that your device UDID has been registered (I'll PM you the link as well). Tapping the Install button if your UDID has not been registered will not download the app.
FYI: This is a manual process to update the IPA with UDIDs so it may take a few hours before I'm able to add your UDID. If your device UDID has not been registered yet, the link will not install the app!

FAQs:
  • The app will expire on March 14, 2023. The app will either crash immediately when opened, or will not open with the message "my MC" Is No Longer Available. At that time, if the app is still functional, everyone will have to re-download MMC from the website. It should install over the existing installation and leave your settings and data intact.
  • You will probably get this ""my MC" would like to find and connect to devices on your local network" message upon first run on iOS 14
    IMG_6844.PNG
    You must tap "OK" for the app to be able to connect to your server.

    Caveat:
    Hitting OK did not immediately work for me. The app continued to throw a "Unable to connect" error until I went to Settings->Privacy->Local Network and toggled "my MC" off and on again. I force quit the app just for good measure, and then it was able to connect again.
  • As long as your device UDID has already been registered, you can uninstall and re-install MMC from the link provided without having to re-register.
  • The UDID does not change when you update to new versions of iOS, or even when you do an Erase all Content and Settings. However, if you replace your device with a new one, you will need to re-register the new UDID.
  • This is entirely free, and you don't need to include any proof of purchase.
I'm excited that we're able to get this app back on iOS for another year (hopefully)!
Many thanks to Jacoats, DanITman, and bryankennedy2 who did the bulk of the work!

I appreciate it, but no need! If you're really inclined, you can donate to garyan2 on my behalf for doing the real work keeping WMC alive with EPG123!

iOS 16 was released today. I upgraded my iphone 11 and MMC now requires the phone to be in "developer mode" to work. Once turned on, the app started up and ran as expected.

To turn on Developer Mode: Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Developer Mode -> Turn the switch on -> Reboot -> Tap "Turn On" when prompted to turn on developer mode.

Just hit this issue on iPhone 13. Glad that they at least left the option in Settings to enable this mode. MMC still working. :thumbup:

iPadOS was released today. Similar to iOS, MMC still works fine, although you do have to enable Developer Mode in Settings to allow the app.

Oh wow! Maybe it wasn't active before because I didn't have any apps that needed it installed. Thanx a bunch for supporting this product!
