It’s lime time for all current iOS devices!

For almost a month now we’ve been eagerly waiting for the selfless people over at Dev-Team to release a jailbreak for the latest iOS 4.1, which will finally bring jailbreakers to the wonder that is Game Center. This momentous occasion was finally announced last week and set to happen on 10.10.10 at 10:10 AM with the release of greenpo1son – the latest jailbreak tool.

And over the week end we got what we wanted, albeit not what we were waiting for. In a surprise announcement geohot, despite earlier claims that he was leaving the jailbreaking scene, has released limera1n – an unpatchable jailbreak for iOS 4.0-4.1 and possibly beyond for iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G. Sorry iPhone 3G and lower users, it seems you’re out of luck this time (granted the original iPhone can’t run iOS 4.0 and the iPhone 3G jailbreak for 4.1 has long been available via redsn0w).

Cydia += Rock – We will rock your iDevice!

A little over a year-and-a-half ago Rock your Phone pioneered the iDevice unofficial store scene. Of course, Cydia had already been running back then, but at the time Saurik hadn’t yet implemented a central purchasing system. As a result, developers had to rely on themselves if they wanted to charge their customers for using their products. And here’s where Rock your Phone came in, creating the first true unofficial store for iDevice applications to be sold through. Later, Saurik followed up with implementing sales support in Cydia Store and ever since there has been a sort of cold war between the two, with developers choosing one or the other to post their products. In the interim Rock your Phone released Rock – a Cydia alternative, boasting some nifty features, including superior performance and the ability to backup your installed apps.

Well, in a recent surprising announcement Cydia is acquiring Rock, making itself the single place to turn to to get your jailbroken apps.

All current iOS devices pwned4life – Jailbreakable forever!

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.

Facetime over WiFi or 3G – anytime, anywhere

At iFixYouri, experiments abound. That penchant for fun got me going with jailbroken WiFi and 3G network settings for Facetime that allows you to have a face-to-face conversation with a loved one anytime, anywhere regardless of your current internet situation.

MyWi is an app that allows you to use your iPhone as a wireless router but without the pesky wires. My3G tricks your phone into thinking it is on a wireless network when it’s actually using your 3G connection. It allows you to use Facetime on 3G networkw and is brought to you by the same people that brought you MyWi.

ultrasn0w updated to 1.1-1, fixes battery drain

A little over a week ago, an update to ultrasn0w brought a software unlock for iPhone 4 owners. Unfortunately, that release was also blamed for users experiencing a drastic decrease in battery life; some have reportedly seen the battery drop 5% an hour while the phone was in sleep mode. For those who rely on the unlock for their iPhones, the good news is that ultrasn0w has just been updated once again with a several tweaks that’s supposed to fix the issue. If you were previously on 1.0-1 and found your battery life affected, you may want to install version 1.1-1 via Cydia. For instructions on how to get ultrasn0w running, take a look here. And speaking of battery performance, if you find your iPhone 4 draining exceptionally fast, make sure that you had in fact set it up as a new phone, as opposed to restoring from an old backup.

iOS 4.0.2 now out. PDF exploit fixed

Apple has now released the iOS 4.0.2 update (3.2.2 for iPad) that plugs the security hole found by JailbreakMe, a web based tool that enables untethered jailbreak via Mobile Safari. If you’re worried about vulnerability, by all means install the update. If however, you rely on your Jailbreak for Facetime over 3G, flash via Frash and of course, unlocking, then it’d be wise to hold off for the time being.

It’s time to Frash your iPhone 4 (tutorial included)

Probably the most advertised “flaw” of the iPhone is, of course, Flash (or lack thereof). Well, at least until the recent Antennagate :) Anyhow, after the whole Apple vs Adobe saga over the last year or so, one would be safe to assume that hell will freeze over before the infamously resource-hungry platform finds it’s way onto the iOS. Well, it seems it’s time for the Devil to start shopping for a new pair of wooly underwear because Comex, the developer responsible for the most recent iDevice jailbreak, has just updated Frash – the port of the Android flash player for the iOS.
