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.

Apple Reaches Federal Government to Stop iPhone Jailbreaking

Apple has approached the federal government to help stop hackers from jailbreaking the iPhone, reports NBC.

A spokesperson from Apple told the US Copyright Office that "Current jailbreak technologies now in widespread use utilize unauthorized modifications to the copyrighted bootloader and operating system, resulting in the infringement of the copyrights in those programs".

This action of Apple has come after Sony recently filed a lawsuit against the well known iPhone hacker Geohot for jailbreaking PlayStation 3 for life.

It is also to be noted here that , the United States government ruled in the favor of iPhone jailbreaks and unlocks as legal, as long as they were not used for piracy purposes. Full details of this new DMCA legislation can be read here.

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:

Redsn0w 0.9.7b3 out , fixes almost all the bugs known yet.

December 27, 2010 Leave a comment

The Redsn0w 0.9.7 jailbreak tool has been updated yet again. This time fixing even more bugs, specifically the ones related to non-GUI programs which handles media content like the embedded videos in iTunes. Redsn0w 0.9.7

The official change log is as follows:

The third beta is now available (testers ONLY please!). This version extends the fix made in beta2 over to the non-GUI programs too (like the daemons that handle media content). So now embedded videos in iTunes work.

The instructions for untethered jailbreak are exactly same as before.

NOTE: All  warnings issued previously still apply.
