Greenp0ison update shown on Video!Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 on its the way!!!

January 22, 2011 Leave a comment

p0sixninja has just released a video update to show their progress on iOS 4.2.1 utethered jailbreak.

For those of you who don’t know, iPhone Dev-Team’s Redsn0w 0.9.7 can already jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 untethered but it has its share of limitations. Redsn0w 0.9.7 untethered jailbreak required SHSH blobs of 4.2b3 saved on Cydia. If you don’t have those SHSH files, you cant get the untethered jailbreak.

But if this new video of Chronic Dev Team is anything to go by, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 is coming real soon.

How to Update to iOS 4.3 Beta without Apple Developer Account

January 19, 2011 Leave a comment

We have just read about this method floating around the web which can apparently allow you to restore your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on iOS 4.3 beta without having to have UDID of your iOS device registered on a developer account.

iOS 4.3 UnlockInstructions are as follows:-

Quick Guide on how to "hacktivate" iOS 4.3 without a developer account.

1. Method
1) Install iOS 4.3
2) "Jailbreak" with redsn0w 0.9.6rc8, you should see a white block in de upper left corner from your iPhone, reboot it
3) get iFunBox
4) navigate to "Raw File System" -> /System/Library/CoreServices
5) open SystemVersion.plist and remove the following lines:
<key>ReleaseType</key>
<string>Beta</string>
6) Reboot the iPhone
7) Activate your iPhone with iTunes

2. Method (thx to joshingknight)
1) Restore to 4.2.1
2) Shift-Update and point the 4.3 IPSW. here’s important that you Shift-Update, not Shift-Restore!
If you want File System Access just jailbreak it like you were on 4.2.1 and reboot your iDevice when it’s stuck on a black screen, then you have FS Access with tools like iFunBox, but Cydia won’t work
Congrats your iPhone is activated now =)

Greetings from Switzerland..

NOTE: These methods have not been tested.

The two methods posted above are for information purposes only.

We highly recommend you to get enrolled in the iPhone Developer Standard or Enterprise Program to have complete access to all current and future iOS Beta releases.

(Thanks, Adrian Pulido)

Adblocker Blocks annoying Ads,Speeds up Web Apps & Safari Browsing

December 30, 2010 1 comment

AdBlocker (1)

AdBlocker-in-Action-2

AdBlocker is an easy to use and powerful tool, similar to extensions for your desktop browsers. It blocks ads in Safari and other apps which are using browser-like views (UIWebView). If an app is using UIWebViews to display content (other browsers like Skyfire, browser in a twitter client) AdBlocker will block ads from being loaded and tries to optimize the space.

AdBlocker will reduce your data usage and often speed up loading of pages; extremely useful if you have a limited cellular data plan – it will save your money.

AdBlocker is very fast, regex-based tool and can handle lists with thousands of entries without noticeable slowing down the apps. Lists for 17 languages are built in, but you can easily add your own custom lists (Just Google ‘adblock lists’ to find urls).

AdBlockercosts $1.99 and can be purchased under the BigBoss Repository.

Please note : AdBlocker is designed to block ads in webcontent like websites and not advertisement in ad-supported apps.

Geohot's next Untethered Jailbreak may be called "Rubyra1n"

December 29, 2010 Leave a comment

We have just been informed about a possible True-Rumor.The domain Rubyra1n.com was registered by the iPhone hacker named George Hotz (aka geohot) on 27th March 2010.

Interestingly, whois records for both blackra1n and rubyra1n shares same record while whois record for limera1n is different. Geohot might have changed it after the discovery of limera1n.com domain (before its release) back in April 2010. Whois records also reveals that both limera1n.com and rubyra1n.com were registered on the same day, that is March 27th 2010 which makes it even more authentic. Though there is no confirmation about this by Geohot himself. Oh and yes, Geohot is not on Twitter.

Whois record for Rubyra1n.com.

BackBoard redefines the way we theme our iDevices…

December 27, 2010 Leave a comment

IMG_0014

The Author of the app “Wyndwarrior” says “BackBoard Redefines Themeing…”  giving his app this description: 

Backboard is designed to help new jailbreakers and lazy people (like me) to install themes that would require complex setups. Often times when installing a navigational based theme, it would take hours to re-arrange icons, organize applications, and SSH files. Backboard eliminates this stress of having to do-it-yourself and instead you simply launch the app, choose a theme you would like, and tap on it, Once your device resprings, it will be loaded with the new theme ready to go. Backboard also has a built-in backup and restore system. Suppose you had installed a theme through backboard and decide to customize it to your preferred look. Once you remove the theme, Backboard saves your customized settings and if you ever return to that theme, it will apply your customization back.”

The concept of Backboard is simple.
When you create a new “theme”, it takes your current iPhone’s setup and makes a complete copy of it (not data like apps, just the current setup). Then, when you install a theme, it swaps the saved copy of your iPhone setup with your current setup. Through this, you can have a concept of “multiple springboards”.

BackBoard Features:
One click installation
Fast theme switching
Backup and Restore
Theme security
Iconoclasm support
Dependency Checker
Simple layout, with theme preview
Custom installers that can link to backboard

Note: Backboard does not supply or download the actual themes for you. You must install/purchase them from Cydia first before you can use backboard to install.

Peep out the video below to get a feel for BackBoard below:
