For those of you who’re eagerly awaiting the 5.1.1 untethered Jailbreak (especially all the new iPad owners out there), Dev Team member pod2g tweeted some great news yesterday. It appears that an untethered jailbreak is on the verge of being released, likely before the week’s over.
From pod2g’s blog, we know that most recent iDevices will be supported, including the iPad 3 (Wifi/CDMA), though the AppleTV 3 seems to be out of luck (the iPad 3 Global model hasn’t been tested yet, but it should work). And according to iDB, the soon to be released 5.1.1 jailbreak is likely to be called Absinthe 2.0. If so, it will be the successor to the original that became the first tool to successfully jailbreak (untethered) the A5 based iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Pretty soon, the jailbreak community will finally be able to install their favorite Cydia apps on their iPad 3. Good news indeed.
The JBnator Diaries – Jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with iOS 4.3.1/4.3.2 via redsn0w [Tutorial]
The war is on! Thanks to the relentless efforts of the Dev-Team, along with the help of ion1c, an independent security expert, the jailbreaking tools for iOS 4.3.1 was recently released. And in our guide today I’m going to help you set free your iPhone 3GS/4, iPod Touch 3G (except 8Gb)/4G and iPad.
Please note, iPad 2 is not supported! Also, I won’t be going into the details of creating custom firmware (for those upgrading a locked phone that need to preserve the old baseband).
So, if you’re looking for a straight-up jailbreak, let’s dive in!
Everyone including the rumoured Apple spy in the Dev-Team has has played the April Fool. On April 1st, the news that an untethered jailbreak was out for all A4 devices, shook the internet. Naturally, i0n1c was having a laugh when he tweeted a link to a supposed archive containing the long sought-for JB package. The catch? A 30-symbol pass code that inquiring minds had to break.
However, there was a piece of truth to that joke as well. Confirmed by MuscleNerd, i0n1c has meanwhile turned over a true exploit in iOS 4.3.1 to the Dev-Team who have just integrated it into the existing Pwn tool set that can set your A4 Jesus device free!
iTête à iTête – Interview with Charlie McHenry from Trilobyte Games – Like a phoenix, rising again from the flames of the AppStore
The App Store model has certainly revolutionized software development as a whole and games development in particular. Thanks to the extremely low entry cost and a centralized distribution system, it has become a launch pad for many new indie developers both successful and not so much. But that isn’t much of a surprise to anyone remotely familiar with the market. What’s more interesting is that this new platform actually allowed some veteran companies many thought long gone to get back together as well.
And of such phoenixes, born again from the flames of App Store, is Trilobyte Games – the company behind the legendary PC adventure – The 7th Guest (TMA Review), recently re-released for the iOS. Today I’m joined by Charlie McHenry, the current COO of Trilobyte, to talk about their resurrection, work on The 7th Guest, future plans, and more.
Every once in a while whenever I look at new releases on the App Store, I get a wave of nostalgia threatening to swipe me off my feet. I don’t care that the devs are just taking good old games and bringing them to the i-platform, I just care that they do it right. And what can compare to the joy of reliving those sweet memories on the Jesus phone? Especially if those memories have iii in them, as in the famous Gobliiins.
Ever since I found out that ScummVM had been ported to the iDevice one thing I always felt missing was the other clever piece of software, which was the last refuge for anyone wanting to play old games on their spanking new PC. I’m talking, of course, about DosBox. I even did some research and the devs said that it would be very difficult to do so due to some underlying engine specifics. Well, apparently one developer had loads of time on his hands, since a few days ago iDOS made a surprise appearance on the App Store — only to be hastily pulled down by Apple after a few hours. But guess what, it’s still available on Cydia under the name of DosPad!
Oh yeah, installation instructions after the break.
Hey there folks! Just a quick note that as promised in my limera1n tutorial yesterday, I’ve updated the very first JBnator Article on how to properly upgrade your iDevice to the latest and greatest iOS version without carrying over any bugs from the older ones. Like what bugs you might ask? Well for example, an update from iOS 3.x to 4.0 and restoring from a backup, it’s possible that users will experience vastly reduced battery life on the iPhones 3G/3GS/4, which is only fixed by setting it up as a new phone in iTunes. Enjoy!
The JBnator Diaries – Jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with iOS 4.1 via limera1n [Tutorial]
Hi folks! I know it’s been a while, but with the recent release of the long-awaited jailbreak for iOS 4.1 from both geohot and Dev Team I just couldn’t NOT address it. I made a short news bit about it several days ago, but I know what you really want is a detailed step by walkthrough. So here you are! Oh yeah, just remembered – if you’re an owner of an iPhone 2G, 3G or iPod Touch 1G or 2G this is not the article for you. At the moment limera1n only works on iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPad, iPhone 4 and theoretically on the Apple TV 2G. So if you’re the lucky owner of the aforementioned devices – read on!
Also, if you desire a clean device while keeping all of your saved games and other stuff, look out for an updated guide on backing up and restoring the info in the near future.
One of the major announcements of the Sept 1st event was, of course, iOS 4.2. The eventual update will finally unify the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad under a single version, bringing the lucky owners of the dream tablet into the world of folders, multi-tasking, Game Center and more. And guess what – the first beta has just been released and clever and inquisitive minds all over the Apple community, willing to risk the stability of their iDevices, have already installed it and have begun exploring the new possibilities. Features uncovered after the gap.
A significant victory has recently been achieved over Apple’s incessant attempts to thwart jailbreaking. First unveiled by the infamous Geohot during the “Nuit du hacks” — one of the oldest and most famous French underground hacker’s conferences — the pwned4life exploit is claimed to make all current iOS devices jailbreakable forever. Unfortunately George Hotz himself has since left the iPhone arena but his work is being continued by pod2g, responsible for the 24kpwn exploit that first made the iPod Touch 2G jailbreak possible and who has already confirmed that all iOS devices up to the latest iPod Touch 4G are indeed susceptible to it.
