Pod2g demonstrates untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak on the new iPad
We know that famed iOS hacker pod2g and his team of developers have been hard at work at trying to give iOS users running on iOS 5.1 an untethered jailbreak solution. So far based on their progress, it seems that they are quite close to finally achieving it – or have they already? Pod2g recently tweeted that he managed to achieve an untethered jailbreak on a third-generation iPad device running […]

Untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak on iPhone 4
Sometime at the end of last month, we mentioned about the possibility of iOS 5.1 jailbreak being released in a month’s time or two, while just yesterday, it seems that another two vulnerabilities were discovered in iOS 5.1 which could very well signal an imminent jailbreak. Well, just as the saying goes, there is no smoke without fire, so too, can you not escape the inevitability of it all, where […]

Two major vulnerabilities discovered in iOS 5.1, jailbreak could be close at hand
If you’re looking forward to the iOS 5.1 jailbreak, things certainly are moving along pretty fast. According to iOS hacker pod2g, it seems that he and his team discovered two huge vulnerabilities: 1 kernel land exploit and 1 root land exploit. Unfortunately the exploits were not detailed, which we’re guessing is to prevent Apple from discovering it early and patching it up, or to prevent other iOS jailbreakers from beating […]


iOS 5.1 jailbreak to be released in a month or two?
Last week we reported that famed iOS jailbreaker, pod2g, revealed that he and his team were making progress as far as an iOS 5.1 jailbreak was concerned. At that time of posting, it seemed that pod2g and his team were quite a long way off from releasing a jailbreak solution to the public. Apparently not. According to iDB, they have reported that pod2g and his team managed to get pass […]

iOS 5.1 tethered jailbreak now available
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!

iOS 86 retro theme now on Cydia
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 […]

RecognizeMe brings face unlock to your iPhone
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, […]

Corona update in Cydia now available for A5-based devices
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 […]

Absinthe jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 released (updated)
“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 […]

iPad 2 iOS 5 jailbreak almost here (updated)

iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak demonstrated on video
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 […]

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.

Zephyr gives your jailbroken iPhone MeeGo multitasking
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.

iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak released
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 […]

Kindle Touch jailbreak
It must be said that the Kindle Touch e-book reader from Amazon is not exactly the beefiest kid on the block when it comes to system specifications and hardware performance, but that does not mean it is a slouch in its performance, either. No sir, you won’t find Google’s Android operating system running on the Kindle Touch, but that does not mean the Kindle Touch has been banished to development […]

iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak demonstrated on video
We’ve had a number of jailbreaks for iOS 5.0 in the past, but they all left the phone in a tethered/semi-tethered state – which basically meant they wouldn’t be fully-functional when restarted without a computer. Well, it looks like those days are almost over because pod2g, an iOS hacker, has successfully developed a fully untethered jailbreak for the operating system. Uploading a video on YouTube, he demonstrated the phone booting […]

Redsn0w for Windows and Mac OS X confirmed
While iOS 5 can be jailbroken, unfortunately its jailbreaking method is currently limited to a tethered jailbreak. What this means is that whenever you restart your iPhone, it will have to be plugged into the computer. Not a huge deal but highly inconvenient if you travel frequently, and thanks to a Twitter update by famed iPhone hacker, MuscleNerd, it looks like an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak could be headed our […]

H1Siri is illegal and might break your iPhone
Siri is one of the most popular features of the iPhone 4S and when people realized that it had no problem running on iOS devices, developers have been working hard at trying to port the app. Well, a group of hackers known as the CD-Dev Team recently managed to pull it off with its own port, H1Siri, and proxy servers. Unfortunately, the code which it used for testing was unintentionally […]
