Ive given up on waiting for CJS and their misteryous update schedule and Im using Ejecta to wrap my mobile app.
Basically, If I had the knowledge I would invest in this open source project rather than waiting unknown amounts of time for a solution.
I recommend you take a look.

[QUOTE=spy84]
you think that if the 90% of the comunity have the ability to make a custom wrapper would buy C2?i dont think so mate.I personally bought (and i think the majority of us)C2 because I dont know programming at all.[/QUOTE]

@spy84
That is my point exactly.

People have no idea how to program yet apparently think making a HTML5-to-Native wrapper is a straightforward breeze.Xionor2013-08-05 17:54:45

the problem is that many of us before buy it we saw export to ios*, android* (*via cocoon js) we dont know what really means and then when the fps is somewhere between 15-22 with 2 layers and 3 sprites and 5 lines of code you see again the "export to ios*,android* (via cocoon js)and the smile in my face is not because im realy happy..
LEAVE WiiU and give Android and Ios exporters a better chance.in my village we offten say its not the quantity that matters but the quality.Multiplatform exporters?No problem at ALL. Gimme more BUT make it work.I have no idea how to program and i dont know before 10 months what html5 2 native wrapper is in a first place but at the end why should i care?its not my problem if is a straightforward breeze or something else.i saw the description of the program I liked it,i paid for it so give me something stable.i dont care about ludei I am a customer of scirra.

at the end ive got no program skills but C2 main customer base is no-program skills-people.spy842013-08-05 18:18:43

I think this is half right, half wrong.
1. C2 users bought C2 because it doesn't need programming. And the commercial says you can make games as a native app with a few clicking... with CJS. But no one tells them CJS is not a complete solution before they ask their problem at the forum.
2.This is C2 forum, not the Ludei's forum. You have to complain in their forum or by email. I contacted with Ludei directly by email and got a lot of help.

@sheepy, I didn't know about ejecta. It looks less straight forward than CJS. I would be keen to give it a go if I could get my project working with ipad 1, ipod touch and iphone 3gs.

Well that is true... but I also think it is good for the Scirra devs to know what is happening when people are using their product - even if the problem is caused by a 3rd party app. I am aware there is not much the Scirra guys can do.

@robotecollective

you are 101% right my friend

But im sure that the devs can do much more.i cross my fingers to do it.Who knows maybe in the future updates weve got something revolutionary for c2.I'm trying to be optimistic because in the past year c2 is extremely updated so the sky is the limit.ive got faith.spy842013-08-06 14:28:20

Yes, what incredible entitlement that people want their games to work. Truly a marvel that people would like to use a piece of software that they paid for and export to platforms that are well-used, like mobile. CocoonJS worked before and was broken with a recent build? CocoonJS is the best way to get C2 (which again, we all paid for) on mobile? PSH, whatever, like that matters. ChrisAlgoo2013-08-06 14:32:59
