iPhone 5 possibly jailbroken on first day
With every new iPhone and version of iOS, iPhone owners dedicated to Cydia get nervous over whether Apple will patch holes needed to add an unlocked bootlocker. With iOS 6, it’s looking good–the iPhone 4 and 3GS were unlocked yesterday, and today, a few iPhone developers have taken to Twitter to claim that they’ve added Cydia to an iPhone 5. It’s not up for download yet, but if the screenshot is […]

LiveClock jailbreak tweak now compatible with iOS 5
One of the odd things about Apple’s Clock app on the iPhone is that it isn’t animated. Given the trouble Apple took to design the app’s icon to actually resemble a clock, one couldn’t be blamed if they assumed that it would actually display the time via the icon itself. It’s not a really big deal but for those who are really picky, you guys might already be familiar with […]

Tethered jailbreak achieved for iOS 6 Beta 3
It was just yesterday when Apple released iOS 6 beta 3 to developers, but the good news is that it appears that a jailbreak solution has been discovered for it already. Unfortunately this is a tethered jailbreak, meaning that you will need to make sure your iPhone is connected to your computer when you need to reboot it. Then again, iOS 6 beta 3 isn’t exactly available for the masses […]

BiteSMS adds Quick Reply feature to WhatsApp on jailbroken iOS devices

Well if you’re familiar with BiteSMS, you’re in luck as the tweak has been updated and now includes a Quick Reply function for WhatsApp users. As pictured […]


Two year old iOS jailbreak exploit closed by Apple, jailbreak solutions might take longer now
Just yesterday we reported that according to iOS jailbreaker, MuscleNerd, it seems that he has managed to achieve a tethered jailbreak for iOS 6. We’re not sure what exploit he was using, but if its the same exploit that the jailbreaking community has been using for the past two years then it looks like the wait for an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak could be longer than you think. According to […]

SignalRefresh is a jailbreak tweak that claims will help boost your iPhone's signal
One of the perks to rooting Android phones or jailbreaking iOS devices is that it allows tweaks and modifications that might have otherwise been restricted in the official capacity. Now if you own an iPhone and you feel that your handset’s signal could be stronger, there is a jailbreak tweak for that in the form of SignalRefresh. Apparently this is a tweak that will help boost the radio signals in […]

Tethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1? Use Rocky Racoon To Untether It [Jailbreak]
As we previously reported, earlier today, the Absinthe 2.0 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 was announced. However, if you already have a tethered jailbreak on your device you might want it to be untethered as well. Instead of going through the whole process again, you can apparently just install the Rocky Racoon tweak that is said to turn your tethered jailbreak into an untethered one. Rocky Racoon is a tweak […]

Cydia cannot withstand Absinthe jailbreak onslaught

Basically, this version of the Absinthe jailbreak targets all iOS-powered devices that run on iOS 5.1.1.

Pod2g and his team are ready to jailbreak iOS 6 even before it has been announced
While iOS 6 has yet to be officially announce, fame iOS hacker and jailbreaker pod2g has announced that he and his team are ready for the iOS 6 jailbreak. How is this possible? Did someone leak iOS 6 ahead of time, or does pod2g have early access to the software? It appears to be neither, but rather pod2g and his team’s penchant of keeping their cards close to their chest. […]

Unfold to Unlock Tweak Now Available for iPhone [Jailbreak]

Just like many concepts in the past, developers have turned this one into a fully functional tweak for jailbroken iPhones and it is […]

Apple Quietly Removes the ‘Jailbreak’ Censor in the App Store
After our story yesterday about Apple allegedly censoring the word jailbreak like it was some expletive, reports today have indicated that Apple has removed the censor and the word appears normally as opposed to J*******k. Apparently the problem was only spotted in the US App Store so it could have been a mistake, but with no statement from Apple yet, nothing can be confirmed for now. If Apple wanted to […]
