iOS 4

Well, you must have definitely cursed Cocoanut for not updating Celeste for a while since its release in Cydia. But the tweak has been finally upgraded with some important updates and supports all firmware versions above iOS 4.3. Those who don’t know, Celeste is tweak which allows you to send files from your iPhone to devices of other vendors such as Blackberry, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, etc. It means that all those devices which supports file transfer over Bluetooth can exchange content from iPhone.

How many times does this happen that you forget to save the SHSH Blobs of the current firmware till Apple release the next ? – Not Anymore. iH8sn0w has released the much awaited tool known as ‘iFaith’ which was in development from a long time. It allows you to save the SHSH Blobs of your current firmware even if Apple is not signing it. In general, Apple doesn’t allow you to downgrade you device to older firmware once new is available for download. The saga started from the iPhone 3G S when certain errors occurred while restoring the device to previous versions.  [click to continue…]

TinyUmbrella has been recently updated to support iOS 4.3.3, the firmware released by Apple to fix the location tracking bug that stores the data in iDevice in an unencrypted format. Fortunately, the @ion1c exploit that existed even after the consequent releases of the firmwares has been implemented in the Redsn0w & Pwnage tool. TinyUmbrella lets you save the SHSH Blobs of you device, thus leading you to restore to the older firmware versions in future.  [click to continue…]

Apple has just released iTunes 10.1 media player update with much awaited iOS 4.2 support. As usual, the iTunes 10.1 will provide number of ‘important stability and performance’ improvements. Yeh, we do expect faster and better syncing. Most importantly, this iTunes 10.1 will let you sync iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with your iTunes library. Now we can expect the iOS 4.2 to arrive any times soon.

Download iTunes 10.1 from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download.

In the past, November 12 was being touted as the date on which iOS 4.2 is supposed to arrive – thats today. With no signs of Apple yet to launch the update, there are some rumors emanating about the possibility of it being delayed by a week or so – thanks to a bug noticed with Wi-Fi connectivity on iPads running iOS 4.2.

Now this is as weird as it gets. We all knew that SkyFires’s pseudo flash enabled browser of the same name was to make its debut in to the Apple App Store some time this week. Well the unthinkable did happen earlier today and it seems folks over at SkyFire are having a hard time meeting the traffic demands of iOS users.

Those of you who are trying to download the application would now be (mostly) greeted with a iTunes error message that says ” The item you have requested is not currently available in the US store”. Strangely enough, people from other parts of the world too are reporting the same issue. So who is to blame here? [click to continue…]

One of the several mobile Safari alternatives is Skyfire. The new version of Skyfire 2.0 will bring an innovative technology that will let users watch Adobe Flash based videos without even installing Flash or any kind of work around. Ha, it’s not magic. Skyfire 2.0 App basically relies aup on the Skyfire’s remote servers that convert Adobe Flash based video to HTML5 based video format. Once the conversion completes, the video starts streaming on the user’s device via Skyfire 2.0 App. Do note that this Skyfire 2.0 would be able to support only videos that can be converted into HTML5 friendly streaming format.

I just jailbreaked my old iPhone 3GS that was stuck on iOS 4.0.2 without a jailbreak / unlock. With Limera1n / Greenpois0n coming in I was able to jailbreak the phone easily. I used the DTIS SIM (you may also use AT&T SIM or whichever carrier your phone is locked to) and activated the phone, used ultrasn0w and unlocked the phone successfully. However upon inserting any other SIM card the iPhone promptly throws an error ‘different SIM detected’ and the connect to iTunes sign showed up. After trying Limera1n again, the problem persisted and the Cydia Pushfix hack doesn’t work for iOS 4.0.2. So here is a simple hack that worked for me: [click to continue…]

This new redsn0w will also bring back custom bootlogos for iPhone3GS owners with older bootroms. The tool has been released for both Mac and Windows.

Yes, you’ve read it right. People have been anonymously uploading photos and videos of Limesn0w unlock for iOS 4.2 and iOS 4.1 running iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS devices. Claims were being made to unlock  the 2.10.04 and 05.15.01 basebands. Recently, I spotted one such posting at Limera1n.cc blog that claims Limesn0w unlock is in works. There wasn’t any Estimated Time of Arrival mentioned for the unlock. Even a video that was put up there.

George Hotz, who came up with Limesn0w unlock earlier hasn’t said a word by himself but the limesnow.com website states the obvious.
