Move To iOS - transfer interrupted problem

A common problem described on the reviews of the "Move to iOS" app is that people are being constantly disconnected when transferring files and settings.


What is happening is your Android connects to a local hotspot created on the iPhone. You will notice that the Wifi indicator on the Android has an exclamation mark. This is because it detects it cannot reach the internet, so it disconnects and tries your home LAN again.

Go to Network Settings and FORGET YOUR EXISTING WIFI connections so it cannot reconnect to your home wifi. Then it is forced to stay on the iPhone hotspot.

Carriage return line feeds

Resolved: Git warning LF will be replaced by CRLF in file | vGeek - Tales from real IT system Administration environment (vcloud-lab.com)

Windows uses CRLF (\r\n) whereas Linux and MacOS just use line feed (\n).

You can turn off warnings with

git config core.autocrlf true
