Apple Censors the Word Jailbreak from iTunes
As of today, if you were to run a search for ‘Jailbreak’ in the iOS App Store or in iTunes on your computer, the results that will be presented will have more asterisks than you can count unless you have a few hours on hand. In addition to the fact that Apple might still void your warranty if you jailbreak your iOS device, Apple has now taken a step further […]

Octopus Keyboard for iOS is reminiscent of Blackberry 10's on-screen keyboard
One of the cooler and more interesting features of Blackberry 10 would be its on-screen keyboard. Different platforms have taken the on-screen keyboard to different levels and there are a variety of different ways that these keyboards can help “predict” our words. For those who might have missed out on Blackberry World, the Blackberry 10 on-screen keyboard basically inserts predicted words on the keyboard frets between the rows. If that […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Before the weekend, we reported that an untethered jailbreak for Apple’s iPhone 4S was close to being ready. How close you ask?

This is probably great news for iPhone 4S owners who […]
