Harp glitch success on 4s???

after over 6 days of being out, I took a freshly wiped iphone 4 (so one gen below yours), disabled cellular, put it on wifi left the screen on and on the charger. It ran for 45 minutes the first time then I got bart screen that I couldn't connect to server. Clicked retry and app crashed back to home screen. did it again for another 45 minutes to see bart again. however this time when I hit retry it kept retrying, though nothing ever happened except bart kept coming up. Rebooted phone and then next try, I went right in. Only one donut bonus game though. Have confirmed this worked for one other person. But as im sure you have read different things work for different people and some don't work for anyone.
hope this helps.

So, I wiped my old iPhone 4, then loaded TSTO, logged in, got the harp loop. But the loop seemed much faster this time. I left it for awhile, came back to find the Bart "cannot connect to server" screen. I hit retry, but it just brought me back to this screen again. I kept retrying for about 10 mins, then finally quit out. Logged back in and voila! I was in!
I have a strong feeling this method should work for anyone who happens to have an extra unused device laying around. For whatever reason, I think it was a matter of having the iPhone resources almost entirely dedicated to TSTO...
Cool. This is the 7th confirmed user that this worked for. Again mileage will vary for everyone but its worth a try using an older iPhone with no service turned on and no other resources in use.
Having free disk space would only matter if you were completely out of space. The resources we feel are freed up enough are proc and ram.
Also since the cause is not device related your iPod is not a deciding factor. The deciding factor is if you are on an affected server.
Have you disabled cellular data and only tried with wifi. Essentially this is the same as trying on an older phone with no service. It's all worth a shot.
Again the fact of cellular being turned off did not work on an iPad. I have only been able to get this to work on iPhones.
Basically just leaving it plugged in with autolock off and cell data disabled and hoping it breaks through. I may try to fiddle with some other things just for the sake of trying; I only have TSTO running, so memory shouldn't be an issue, but I may free up some drive space later just in the off chance it has an effect. Probably some stuff on there I don't use anyway.
EDIT: Going to try with wireless disabled and cell data on, just for laughs.
Yeah I did the cell only for a while so I could test different networks and never made progress. But it never hurts to try things over and over again.
The only difference between what you did and what I did with others is you don't have a fully wiped device as if it were brand new out of the box. If you do go that far please make sure you have all data backed up and all pics and vids synced AND copied off your device.
