I have an iPod touch (2nd gen) and constant troubles with the clock setting itself one hour ahead of the actual time when I connect it to the computer.
long story short, When I SSH into the device:
ARSTwhich is correct (I'm in Buenos Aires, Argentina)
date "+%z"the result is
-0200, which is wrong and should be
My question is: How do I correct the offset of my timezone to the real value?
I have found mentions of
zdump and references to a "IANA Time Zone Database".
I've tried to find allready compiled files in order to replace the whole "zoneinfo" folder, but the downloads I could find seem to use a different folder structure than the one on the iPod.
edit: I am looking for a way to edit or update the timezone information, so that my timezone "ARST" is configured correctly. I have found several references to a compiler named
zic, but need help in order to work out a solution.
zdump are present on the device, which leads me to believe it can be done via SSH and UNIX-commands.
