If you’re looking for a white unlocked iPhone 4, you can either wait for its release around mid July, or, if you have an extra $20,000, you may want to go for the bling bling version by Stuart Hughes.
iPhone 4 Diamond Edition
I wonder if the diamonds can prevent the iPhone death grip? One thing I know for sure though is that it looks incredibly tacky.

Spirit Jailbreak for iOS4 Coming Soon
Yesterday I was telling you the Dev Team is working hard on an unlock for iPhone 4. Some of you may have wondered why the Dev Team would be working on an unlock when a jailbreak is not even ready yet, right?
That’s because according to MuscleNerd, a jailbreak for all devices at iOS 4 is already taken care of by the upcoming release of Spirit by Comex.
Now the question is: when will Spirit for iOS 4 be available? With Apple supposed to release an update to iOS 4 in the upcoming weeks to supposedly fix the antenna issue, I doubt Comex will release Spirit beforehand and give Apple a chance to patch the exploit.
I bet you can’t wait for Spirit for iOS 4, can you?

For those of you wondering, yes, the Dev Team is still working on an iPhone 4 unlock. These 2 tweets from MuscleNerd and PlanetBeing just confirmed that they are actively working on the unlock, which doesn’t seem to be an easy task.

Even though Apple has been working hard on patching the holes, it’s good to see that PlanetBeing has a whole “bag of tricks”.

Apple added an anti-blacksn0w trick this time around. ;) i have an ever-growing bag of tricks though, wrapped in a nice python script.less than a minute ago via web
There is no ETA for an iPhone 4 unlock, or even a jailbreak, which seems to be the priority.

Two iPhone developers have uncovered what seems to be a massive hack of the App Store. After seeing the rating of their apps dramatically drop, Patrick Thomson and Alex Brie looked more into it and realized someone had been hacking into people’s iTunes account to buy apps developed by someone called Thuat Nguyen.
Hacked App Store Account
By hacking into people’s account and buying his own apps, he was able to rank 41 of his apps in the top 50 of the Books category, which seems to be the only category affected.
None of the apps contain legit reviews except for one app, which has 2 reviews from people complaining they had never purchased this app and that their App Store account had probably been hacked. Someone even mentioned his App Store account showed purchases he never made for $200.
By the time you read this, I’m sure Apple will have been alerted and removed these fraudulent apps from the App Store. I also assume Apple will give the money back to people who were hacked.
For the time being, a safe thing to do would be to change your iTunes Store password.
I think this is the first case of App Store hacking publicly revealed. Unfortunately, I also think this is just the beginning, and with the success of the App Store, we’ll see more and more of these.

A few weeks ago, Comex, the developer of Spirit, shared with us a video of Flash running on the iPhone. Today, Comex introduces Frash, which is basically a port of Flash for Android on the iPad.
Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the iPad MobileSafari browser, but support for other devices (3GS and iPhone 4 only due to hardware requirements) is on the way, as well as support for iOS 4.
Comex won’t release Frash until it is stable and that might take a while. If you’re a developers and you want to join the effort at http://github.com/comex/frash.

SymbolsIf having emoji icons on your iPhone keyboard is not enough, maybe you can follow this little trick that will easily allow you to add symbols to your text entries.
To do so, go to http://mrgan.com/gb/ from your iPhone and follow the onscreen instructions. It will add a bookmark to your homescreen from which you will then be able to copy/paste various symbols.
There are 48 symbols right now but more will probably be added in the future.
