I have an iPod touch (2nd gen) running iOS 3.1.3 (since it won't perform well with iOS 4) and constant troubles with the clock setting itself one hour ahead of the actual time when I connect it to the computer.
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 already 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
zdump are present on the device, which leads me to believe it can be done via SSH and UNIX commands.
