iPhone 4

Apple released their iOS 6.1.3 update for all supporting devices yesterday, one of the major update in the release is to patch a lockscreen passcode bug that gives low level access to call logs, photos and contacts on the device. But it seems that a new bug has been revealed by Youtube user videosdebarraquito that would give access to call logs, photos and contacts on Voice Control enabled devices without SIRI. This bug was successfully replicated when our team tested it on an iPhone 4 today morning. A detailed video has been posted below which shows the bug.

Scott Buscemi of 9to5mac published an interesting piece of news yesterday. It seems Apple considered four different names for the iPhone apart from well, the obviously chosen “iPhone “. And surprisingly most of the other choices seem funny now, which are “Telepod”, “iPad”, “Mobi” and “Tripod”. At an event at the University of Arizona’s Department of Marketing (Eller School of Management), former Apple advertising lead Ken Segall shared this additional details into the naming behind Apple’s massively popular smartphone.

TypeStatus, a free app on Cydia is a simple tweak that notifies you in the iOS status bar with a simple icon of message bubble with dots when someone is typing an iMessage to you. No matter what you are doing on the phone the alert on the status bar still appears, this incredible tweak is simple yet very useful. The only downside of the app is that it doesn’t tell you who is sending you an iMessage but hey, it does let you know that an iMessage is about to be delivered!

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) agreed to investigate the recent ban on Cell Phone Unlocking in the US which states that it is illegal to unlock any cell phone in the US that has been purchased after January 26th 2013. The investigation’s main purpose is to analyse  if the ban is harmful to economic competitiveness of the system. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has said that the “ban raises competition concerns; it raises innovation concerns”.

In a reply to someone on Twitter, MuscleNerd said that ultrasn0w 1.2.8 already supports iOS 6.1 for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. So if you want to preserve BaseBand of your iPhone, you could make a custom firmware using Redsn0w and do a restore in iTunes. To restore on Mac in iTunes, use option+restore and shift+restore on Windows. Once you have restored, you could use Cydia to install ultrasn0w 1.2.8 and unlock your iPhone.

On iPhone 4, the supported BaseBands are 1.59.00. And for iPhone 3GS, the supported basebands are 4.26.08, 5.11.07, 5.12.01, 5.13.04 and 6.15.00. If you are on a baseband other than them, you couldn’t use latest version of ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone. Please note that this update is not meant to unlock devices other than iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. Hence, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S users still need to rely on factory unlocks. [click to continue…]

Although we are at 99% status prior to the release of iOS 6.x untethered JailBreak, but MuscleNerd from evad3rs has confirmed that you would be able to convert a tethered JailBreak into untethered using a debian file. It means that you would just need to install an app from Cydia if you want to convert your tethered JailBreak into untethered. However, it’s advised to update to latest firmware which is iOS 6.1 and use JailBreak untethered from the start.

For now, only A4 devices could be JailBroken tethered on iOS 6.1. All those who have already done that could use the upcoming JailBreak release for the conversion into untethered JailBreak. And rest of you who haven’t yet updated should go ahead and update your devices because iOS 6.1 untethered JailBreak is awaited in less than an hour. Previously, when iOS 5.x untethered JailBreak was released, iOS hackers had released something similar to convert tethered JailBreak into untethered. [click to continue…]

After the much expected release of iOS 6.1, Apple has stopped signing iOS 6.0.1 or iOS 6.0.2 which was being installed on iOS devices. Undoubtedly, while a team of iOS hackers readies you an untethered JailBreak on iOS 6.1, you should update your iPhone manually (recommended) or via OTA on your device.

We have said this earlier, but we would like to repeat that it’s absolutely safe to update to iOS 6.1 even if you are looking forward for a properly functional JailBreak. Apple’s been closing the path to downgrade for iOS users from quite sometime (the most popular way is of course to stop signing older versions). And as always, they have followed the same rule to close iOS 6.0.1/iOS 6.0.2 restore on your device again. [click to continue…]

Every year, more than thousands of tweaks are being developed by iOS hackers which are released on Cydia, simply because Apple doesn’t allow them to take control on their mobile operating system. Even after limited audience on JailBroken devices and perhaps, extremely loyal to buy tweaks, themes or apps, the momentum to release tweaks on Cydia have been fantastic. Although it’s very tough to sort out only 6 of them from lots of amazing tweaks released in 2012, we have tried our best to come up with the ones which deserve to be in the list. Checkout our picks below -

1) Auxo

As we have mentioned about the tweak earlier, this re-imagines the way we think about application switcher. An icon in the multitasking bar along with the screenshot just behind it makes it one of the best tweak released in 2012. You can even close the opened apps by swiping down multiple apps at once with the help of two finger gestures. Also, it changes the way you interact with music and features various toggles by swiping on the right side of the multitasking bar. It’s priced at $1.99 and worth every penny invested on it.

2) Zephyr

 Zephyr is from a popular iOS hacker called @chpwn who had a contribution to Siri on devices other than iPhone 4S. This tweak from Chpwn still stands away from the crowd due to support of some brilliant gestures to bring the multitasking tray by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. In fact, you can switch between the apps right from the corner by swiping left to right or from right to left from the currently active app. We have reviewed the application many times with each update bringing some really big improvements over the predecessor.

Finally, the time has come when a proper Tethered JailBreak for A4 devices on iOS 6.0 is made available via new version of Redsn0w. The new version of Redsn0w not only supports tethered JailBreak for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or iPod touch 4, but also brings plethora of features which would help you to know current status of your device. It means that you would be able to know whether your device is hacktivated or deactivated in addition to saved SHSH Blobs.

 

Needless to say, the whole of the description on DevTeam blog focus more on SHSH Blobs than any of the new features. This is because SHSH Blobs are an important part for any iOS device owner to downgrade or retain your previous untethered JailBreak. Unfortunately, A5+ devices owners still have restrictions for downgrade from iOS 6.0 to iOS 5.1.1 except iPad 2 owners where iOS 4.x SHSH Blobs are mandatory with iOS 5.x.x. [click to continue…]
