04/19/2012, Owners of the new iPad with iOS 5.1 will be pleased to learn that according to famed iOS hacker, pod2g, a jailbreak for iOS 5.1 is on its way. No word on when the jailbreak will be released, but just don’t expect it to surface in the next few days. According to the hacker’s tweet, it seems that he and his group of hackers have managed to weed out all […]
03/08/2012, Just yesterday we reported that iOS 5.1 was launched and available for immediate download, and the good news for iOS users out there is that the update has since been jailbroken! The iPhone Dev Team have recently announced that their Redsn0w jailbreak tool has been updated to allow the jailbreaking of iOS 5.1 devices, but of course there are several caveats that potential jailbreakers should definitely pay attention to.
02/23/2012, Do you recall that uber cool iOS 86 retro theme that was spotted a day before Valentine’s on our website? Well, that particular iOS theme transformed your iPhone’s user interface into what Apple might have done if black and white touchscreen displays were the norm back in the 1980s. Here is some good news for those of you who have already jailbroken your iPhones – the iOS 86 retro theme […]
02/15/2012, If you’ve got an iPhone and wish that it had the nifty face unlock feature that’s present on Android Ice Cream Sandwich devices – well you now can. Provided you have a jailbroken iOS device with a front facing camera. The app is called RecognizeMe and has been recently updated to version 2.0 to support iOS 5. In case you were wondering, it has been rewritten from the ground up, […]
02/01/2012, There is a new update released for the Corona untethered jailbreak tool, making it available for the entire gamut of A5-based devices. Jailbreaks in the past (a move that allows the user to gain access to system level files, hence being able to run applications that were not officially sanctioned by Apple) have not been able to work consistently with Apple’s eBook app for everyone, but thanks to the latest […]
02/01/2012, It appears as though a provision in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) legitimizes the practice of removing limitations that are set in place by Apple’s iOS operating system that currently powers the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad – and such access to such files with the ability to modify them is known as “jailbreaking”. This method allows one to turn an Apple device that is powered by iOS to […]
01/24/2012, Ever wondered what would happen when you cross breed an apple and a potato? You get a hot potato in the form of the Apple iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, especially with the Absinthe A5 untethered jailbreak being released just a few days ago, having already touched nearly a million units being “set free” (it is a matter of perspective, really) in that time period. Jailbreaking a device means gaining […]
01/20/2012, “Soon” is a relative word, and iOS 5.0.1 hacker extraordinaire pod2g did use this particular word to describe the long awaited iPad 2 and iPhone 4S jailbreak – and has done so for one fortnight or so already, and this morning, pod2g’s latest blog post reads that the jailbreak will roll out in a matter of hours thanks to a tool known as Absinthe. I am not quite sure whether […]
01/18/2012, It’s been almost a year since the last iPad 2 jailbreak and while iOS 5 has been out for some time, we still haven’t seen a working iOS 5 jailbreak released for the tablet. Now, it looks like the wait is coming to an end. pod2g has posted on his blog a photograph of what appears to be an iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 running the Cydia app store – which […]
01/16/2012, Before the weekend, we reported that an untethered jailbreak for Apple’s iPhone 4S was close to being ready. How close you ask? Well, it seems that Pod2g, the person behind this jailbreak, has posted on his blog today a video of Dustin Howett, a Chronic Dev Team member, demonstrating what appears to be an untethered jailbreak on the iPhone 4S. This is probably great news for iPhone 4S owners who […]
01/12/2012, Word on the street has it that an untethered iPhone 4S jailbreak is already on its way, and will be released to the masses in a few days’ time. pod2g is the man behind this attempt, where the iOS community would be indebted to him for his new jailbreak tools that are capable of supporting both the latest hardware and iOS revision. Previously, classic devices did not require that complicated […]
12/29/2011, Remember the Nokia N9 – the first and last MeeGo phone from Nokia? While the phone was brilliant in its own right, it won’t be officially making its way over to our shores but that doesn’t mean we can’t experience the goodness that MeeGo brings. Renowned iPhone hacker chpwn has released a new tweak for jailbroken iPhone devices that brings the multi-tasking aspect of MeeGo over to iOS.
12/27/2011, Just in time for the holidays, the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak which was demonstrated on video over the past few weeks is now available to the public. pod2g announced today on his blog that the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released the A4 untethered for 5.0.1 based on his work. Both files are exactly the same and are distributed as Cydia packages or already tethered jailbroken […]
12/22/2011, Interested in running iOS 5.0.1 on your jailbroken iPhone 4? We’ve got some good news for you. The developer known as pod2g is back and this time around he has posted up a new video showing off the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak running on an iPhone 4. The reason for this video? To prove to naysayers who were complaining that the jailbreak only worked on the iPod touch. Well, it […]
