Notifications about the system events when the app closed or minimized

[V2.2] You can set up receipt of notifications when iRidium minimized on iOS. This "Local" background notifications works from 2 to 19 minutes, so we do not recomend to use it to inform about important events.

When the app cloased, you cannot get a notification at all

How to setup:

var in_BG = false;

IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_TAG_CHANGE, IR.GetDevice("DRIVER"), function(name, value)
if(name == 'STATUS' && in_BG)
// Sound identifiers
None : 0, // without sound
Default : 1, // standard notification sound on iOS
Ringing : 2, // standard ringtone
// Creation of required variables
string = "DRIVER " + name + " VALUE = " + value;
id = "" + name;
delay = 0; // seconds
sound_id = SOUND_ID.Default;
// badge – the numeric icon on the app icon
badge_increment_num = 1;
IR.SendNotification(string, delay, sound_id, badge_increment_num, id);

// when the application goes to the background
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_APP_ENTER_BACKGROUND, 0, function()
in_BG = true;

// when the application comes to the foreground
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_APP_ENTER_FOREGROUND, 0, function()
in_BG = false;

Will iRidium work after updating the firmware on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch?

Do not update the firmware of your device until making sure that iRidium client has been updated accordingly.
If you have problems with the control interface after updating the firmware, do not reinstall iRidium on your iOS device as a first method of fixing, you'll get an HWID changed. Just try to install the newest version of iRIdium for PC, save your project in a new version and upload it again.

Crash logs on iOS

If an app is freezing or crashing regularly, we may request crash logs from you to help us diagnose any issues. Crash logs contain information about what the app was doing just prior to the crash.

There are multiple ways to retrieve crash reports from an iOS device.

Emailing from a device:

  1. Start by opening up the Settings app.
  2. Navigate to General -> About -> Diagnostics & Usage -> Diagnostic & Usage Data.
  3. Select a Chrome crash from the list. This will start with “i2_Control_YYYY-MM-DD-24-hour” and contain the timestamp of the crash.
  4. Tap on the crash and you will see a text field with a crash log. Long press to Select All and then Copy the crash text.
  5. Send it to us by email:

Syncing with iTunes:

This method involves syncing your device with iTunes. After syncing, crash reports will be copied to a specific location on your hard drive. This method is also documented at

  1. Sync your device with iTunes on your desktop.
  2. After syncing, look for crash logs in the correct directory. See below for a list of directories for each operating system.
  3. In this directory, look for files starting with "i2_Control_YYYY-MM-DD-24-hour".
  4. Send it to us by email:
(NOTE FOR MAC USERS: ~/Library is hidden by default on Mac OS X. To easily get this folder, open the Finder application, then hold the "option" key while clicking on the "Go" menu. You should see a menu item for "Library." Click on that, then continue navigating to Logs, CrashReporter, etc.
