iPhone/Xcode - "error while creating dependancy graph"

This will occur when you hit build or clean sometimes if you have a relative path set in your project for your temporary directory (for me it occurs most frequently after an upgrade to a new SDK). To fix this issue (which is an internal XCode compiler issue) smply add $(PROJECT_DIR) as the root for ...

Most developers are aware that the allowed size of an application for download via normal phone comms has been upped to 20Mb, however few people I've talked to seem to understand exactly how this size limit is calculated.

The phone was designed and manufactured by apple (and you have to digitally accept a contract to use the iTunes store if I remember right) but the 'phone contract' is purely with your provider I believe.

Re: How do I have my iPhone 3G replaced without going to an Appl

I think the limit is down to the number of pages displayable within the UI (I think there's an upper limit of 128 pages of apps or something silly) rather than you being likely to hit the actual storage limit as most apps are fairly small.

To get going again, de-license your game (in Game Preferences at the bottom of that window), and then re-license it again.

This problem will be rectified in the forthcoming OOTP X patch.
