Apple TV 2 5.3 Untethered Jailbreak Released
Often called a “hobby,” the Apple TV is actually quite a decent set-top box that has performed relatively well in the market.

iPhone 5s Jailbreak Tweak Lets You Use Touch ID As A Home Button
If there’s one pet peeve that we’re sure many iOS users have about their device would be its home button. Considering that the home button needs to be pressed all the time in order to exit an app or switch between apps, it can wear out pretty fast, leaving some iOS users asking Apple for a soft key version. Granted you could always use the on-screen home button but that’s […]

Jailbreak For iOS 6.1.3 And 6.1.4 Coming Soon
It was just the other day that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 was released which is great news for those running on iOS 7 at the moment.

Nokia Lumia 920 Reportedly Jailbroken By Chinese Hackers
When it comes to hacking our phones, Android and iOS are quite popular either by rooting or jailbreaking, and while there are options out there for Windows Phone users, it is not as commonplace, but who knows, perhaps down the line Windows Phone could get popular enough where hearing about an upcoming jailbreak could be worth looking forward to!

Taig App Store Removed From iOS 7 Untethered Jailbreak After Piracy Concerns
Last week, out of the blue, the evad3rs developers team released the iOS 7 untethered jailbreak for all supported devices. It was an unexpected release because the community wasn’t made aware of the progress for quite some time, which is usually the case with planned jailbreak releases. Some believe that evad3rs might have rushed to get it out the door when rumors started circulating that the iOS 7 untethered jailbreak […]

Evasi0n iOS 7 Jailbreak Faces Controversy Over Pirated Apps Store
Earlier we reported that the folks at Evad3rs had released the untethered iOS 7 jailbreak but it seems that along with the jailbreak, they include an app store called Taig which is from China, but as it turns out Taig is a third party store in which there are many cracked apps, essentially meaning that they are pirated apps. While it is commonly understood that when one jailbreaks their device, […]

iOS 6.1.4 Jailbreak Finally Surfaces
iOS users have been looking forward to iOS 7 ever since it was detailed by Apple earlier this summer.

That all changes today as iOS 6.1.4, which was released back in May for iPhone 5 users, has officially been […]

Deus Ex: The Fall For iOS Will Not Allow Jailbroken iOS Devices To Fire Guns
 One of the reasons iOS users jailbreak their devices is so they can install apps and tweaks that normally would not be allowed through standard apps and the default iOS system. Another reason iOS users jailbreak is also to download apps that they would normally have to pay for via the iTunes App Store, and unfortunately if you own a jailbroken iOS device and were looking forward to playing Eidos’ […]

3DBoard Jailbreak Tweak Brings Parallax Effect Onto Jailbroken iPhones
iOS 7 was announced yesterday to much fanfare, and one of the cool visual features of the new operating system would be the 3D parallax effect which gives the user the impression that the app icons are floating on the background with a 3D effect. It’s a bit novel but hey, it does help iOS stand out against the competition, not to mention it will give iOS users a crowd-pleasing […]
