Jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 4.x is "Close to Out"

Hot News to get the hopes up, in an all-star podcast interview with Comex, Planetbeing, Chpwn, and Saurik yesterday, Comex was asked "When is the iPhone 4 Jailbreak and Unlock is going to be released?", the answer was great "pretty close to done"



Question: When is the iPhone 4 Jailbreak and Unlock is going to be released?

Comex: You will have to ask Saurik if he’s done with that bootstrap yet. Like I hate to say this because people will be complaining, but it is pretty close to done.

PlanetBeing: Unlock is done. Just waiting for the jailbreak to be released.

Chpwn: The jailbreak definitely needs a lot of testing before it is released, to make sure it works on everybody’s phone, and that there are no issues like Spirit had where it deleted all of your photos in the first few days of the release.

White iPhone 4 Cloned By Chinese !!

Chinese are well known for cloning almost everything. They have done this again by cloning iPhone 4 white before it was launched by Apple. As they have cloned almost all apple products in the past the Chinese have done this smartly again. It seems that Chinese are trying to capture the market by launching the clone iPhone 4.The phone is named as Ciphone 4.It is quite interesting why they put C in the beginning may be it stands for China or cloned.


The Ciphone 4 measures at 115.5mm x 61mm x 11.4mm which is exactly the same dimension as original iPhone 4. This cloned phone is powered by Windows mobile 6.1 it also includes a 460MHz HUawei Hisilicon K3 chip, 3.5 inches 480×320 touch screen, 128MB of RAM, 256MB ROM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 1.3 megapixel camera with LED flash and one more thing which is quite interesting that they put the front camera as well for some kind of chat.


This smart Chinese phone is available in 16GB and the introducing price for this is 1450 Yuan which is equivalent to 214USD. We strongly discourage the purchase of Copy products. You can try this product on your own risk because you can never compare a fake product with Apple quality products.

OpenAppMkt is a New App Store Alternative [No Jailbreak Required]



OpenAppMkt is a new App Store alternative that takes full advantage of iPhone web apps, which means that no jailbreak is required.

Remember when the iPhone first came out and Steve was praising those web apps? Well OpenAppMkt gathered some of them and packed them up in a nice and convenient web app.

To install OpenAppMkt simply point Safari to http://www.OpenAppmkt.com/ and follow the onscreen instructions.

Installing OpenAppMkt won’t install anything but a Safari bookmark on your iPhone homescreen. Hitting the bookmark will take you to OpenAppMkt web app from where you’ll be able to browse web apps and install their bookmarks on your homescreen.

To be clear, these are just web apps. by installing any of these apps, you aren’t actually installing anything but a Safari bookmark on your homescreen.

I love the concept and its implementation. You sure are limited to what you can do with a web app but OpenAppMkt is a nice and convenient alternative to the App Store or even Cydia.

Slow iPhone 3G? Apple is Looking Into it

Is your iPhone 3G slow after upgrading to iOS 4? You’re not the only one. Apple’s forums and tech blogs are filled with reports from 3G owners who are desperate for fixing the issues iOS 4 brought.
The most common criticism is that the phone is slow after an upgrade. There are also many complaints that the phone drains the battery quickly and becomes excessively hot. Concern about general problems such as slowness and battery life on gadgets isn’t unusual, but using iOS 4 on the iPhone 3G seems to make the problems so bad that the phone is nearly unusable for some people.
The WSJ was told by Apple they are looking into this matter and they might be already working on a possible fix.

If you have an iPhone 3G running iOS 4, you know how painfully slow your device can be. This is due to the fact that iOS 4 was designed for more powerful devices like the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4.
iPhone hacker Comex tweeted a link to a MMI article showing how you can easily make your iPhone 3G on iOS 4 faster. Apparently, turning off Spotlight Search does the trick.
To do so, go to Settings > General >Home Button > Spotlight Search, then turn off everything and reboot your iPhone.

Hack Turns Your iPod Touch Into an iPhone

You’re going to have to take this one with a huge grain of salt but it seems a company called Yosion figured out a way to turn the iPod Touch into an iPhone. And no, this doesn’t require you to use some VoIP service. This hack, if legit, might be the ultimate iTouch hack ever made.
Basically the “Apple Peel 520″ comes as an iPod Touch case that includes an Infineon baseband chip, an extra 800 mAh battery, and a slot for a SIM card. Just pop a SIM card in and plug your microphone-equipped ear buds and you should be good to go.
The Apple Peel 520 will presumably go on sale this week in China for $45 to $75. There isn’t much proofs this is real so don’t get too excited about it.

An iPhone App That Makes Popcorn



Of course it’s a fake…

iPlunge Might Be the Coolest iPhone Stand Ever

If iPlunge is not the coolest iPhone stand ever, it might just be the most original one. Gotta love the product description too:
No plumbing required! Use it at work, home, train, plane, it works anywhere! Wow, what a handy stand!
You can preorder your iPlunge from here for just about $6. Can’t go wrong with that…

Light Leak is Causing White iPhone 4 Delays

There’s a price to pay if you want to make beautiful devices, and Apple knows exactly what this price is… The Street as an article this morning that reveals the white iPhone 4 delays may be due to back light from the iPhone display screen leaking out around the edges of the glass and seeping through the back of the phone.
[...] the light seepage presents a very specific problem to the white phone since it is far more transparent than black. The iPhone is made like a glass sandwich. Apple uses Corning’s Gorilla glass on the front and back of the phone and a metal band runs around the outside doubling as an antenna.
If I were in charge of that, I’d say put a case on your iPhone and you won’t see the light anymore but we all know Apple wouldn’t want such a quick fix for such a major issue… or would they?
The White iPhone 4 has been awaited like the messiah since June 15th. Apple has now postponed its launch for the third time, the latest ETA being “later this year“.

Redsn0w 0.9.5 can Jailbreak Firmware 4.1 Beta 2

If you’ve updated to 4.1beta2 on iPhone3G or iPod2G(non-MC), you can use this redsn0w from June to jailbreak. Just point it at the 4.0 IPSW (the public one, not the developer GM one).

(Yes – point it at the 4.0 IPSW even though you’re at 4.1beta2).
Don’t do this if you need the ultrasn0w carrier unlock!!
Note 1: This won’t hacktivate your iPhone3G – but for those with legit access to the 4.1beta2 this shouldn’t matter. Please don’t pirate Apple software
Note 2: If you’re at 4.1beta2 you’ll probably experience network problems after jailbreaking. Until a new version of redsn0w is released, you may need to rely on afc2 access (such as FunBox-like file browser programs) to manipulate your filesystem.
Note 3: This is recommended only for power users who can deal with the problems that will pop up as the JB apps fall further behind the beta firmwares.


Update 1:
MuscleNerd, member of the Dev-Team, has posted on his Twitter that it is possible to do the Jailbreak to IOS 4.1 beta 2 in the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G (No MC). But MuscleNerd warns that there may be a number of problems:
* No HackactivaciĆ³n.
* There may be network problems after installing IOS 4.1 and do the Jailbreak.
The redsn0w Jailbreak 0.9.5 is made available on its website.
We do not recommend or install the beta or do the Jailbreak IOS, wait for the final versions.

Apple Pushes iOS 4.1 Beta 2. Download at Your Own Risks


Apple just released iOS 4.1 Beta 2 to developers
, and unless you are a dev, you have absolutely no business downloading and installing it on your iPhone.
If you do, make sure you don’t care about future jailbreaks and unlocks because you might lose your ability to do it.
There doesn’t seem to be much in this beta release except for the proximity sensor fix, which hopefully will prevent those affected from randomly hanging up on people.


MuscleNerd


 
3g and 3gs unlockers, keep ur latest ultrasn0w unlock working, and NEVER approach the latest 4.1b2 ios, and of course ios 4.1 when it's out

Jailbreaking is Legal. Now What?

Woohoo, jailbreaking and unlocking your iPhone is now completely legal (in the US anyways)! This being said, what is the new rule going to change for us jailbreakers? Unfortunately nothing!
Yes, nothing is going to change. Even though jailbreaking is now legal, Apple is in no way obliged to make it easy for us to jailbreak. The good old cat and mouse game between Apple and the Dev Team lives on. Worse, things might even get more complicated.
The legalization of jailbreaking was a big deal yesterday. If you were anywhere near a computer or TV screen, you probably heard about it. So did many other people. This free advertising for jailbreaking might have people who were on the fence before take the dive and jailbreak their devices.
Apple certainly doesn’t want more people jailbreaking their iPhones because they are worried they might end up losing this tight grip they have on the App Store. As a result, I believe Apple will try to make things even harder for jailbreakers and make sure everyone knows although jailbreaking is legal, it will still void your warranty should you decide to give your iPhone a (jail)break.
What’s your take on it? Do you think Apple will keep playing the cat and mouse game? Or will they make it easier for us to jailbreak? Your opinion sure is as good as mine. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.

Apple’s Free Bumpers Shipping

I ordered my free black Bumper last week and it initially said the item wouldn’t ship until late August. I received an email from Apple yesterday night telling me my order had shipped. I suppose I will receive it by tomorrow.
If you have an iPhone 4, you’re entitled to receive a free case from Apple so make sure you check out these instructions on how to get it. If you’ve already ordered your free case from Apple, you should start receiving a shipment notice soon as well.

Why Jailbreak Matters, and What Jailbreak Isn't

Click the 
image to open in full size.

The Copyright Office and Librarian of Congress today officially sanctioned jailbreaking the iPhone, and while they were at it also put their pen to paper approving unlocking the device as well. Apple originally weighed in on this issue in February of 2009.

I've been reading the various news coverage (including ours) around this story, and it seems a good idea to define why jailbreaking is important, why the government agrees, and what jailbreaking isn't. This article will be a bit long, as I'd like to address the point fairly fully.

At the end of the article I'll reference some of the big points from the official filing. But let's get back to the original question - why does jailbreak matter?

Running iphoneland.de.lv, my daily conversations with people (frickin' EVERYONE has an iPhone) always wind up turning to jailbreak, and there's the single inevitable question - "well why should I jailbreak?" A lot of "apps" come up - MyWi, WinterBoard, Notifier, Intelliscreen, SBSettings... which is what they're usually asking. Those are reasons TO jailbreak, though, not reasons FOR jailbreak to be legal and important. To answer that question, we need to take a look at what jailbreaking is.
At it's core, jailbreaking is not an app, it's not Cydia, it's one simple thing - having unrestricted write access to your device. In more technical terms, it's having root access. In the Android scene, it's actually called rooting your device.

So what's the big deal you ask? Maybe you're not a hacker, or even a "hobbyist" or "enthusiast" - that's fine. Maybe you don't care about having any access at all to your device - it does everything you need already. You don't want to jailbreak, and you never will. That's fine, and for many, true. My iPhone 4 isn't jailbroken yet, and it's been handling itself just fine - of course there's tons of jailbreak apps I miss (Notifier, Tlert, MyWi, WinterBoard, iFile, and OpenSSH/SSL being some of the biggest). But if I /want/ to modify my device, which I have purchased and own outright, for completely legal activities, enhancing the original purpose of the device (a "smartphone") - it should be legal. Whether I do so or not should remain wholly my choice.

This precedent is in nearly every computer or "smart" gadget on the market. When you go down to Best Buy and purchase Sony or Toshiba's latest laptop, the Best Buy people don't tell you "now this has Windows, you can install any program Microsoft sells through their store here. Anything else is illegal." Or from Sony/Toshiba/whomever's store. You're free to install any Windows-compatible app you'd like to. You're not infringing any copyright by installing third-party software on your computer, you're simply installing third-party software. The same can be said even of Apple's desktop/laptop operating system, OS X. There is none of this "purchasing software from anywhere but us is illegal" talk anywhere but in the iOS field. Heck, you can even put programs on your Texas Instruments graphing calculator.

Many people seem to associate "jailbreaking" with "iPhone piracy." This is a flawed view. Piracy IS illegal, has been clearly defined as such legally for years, and is not at all synonymous with jailbreaking. Take ModMyi.com as a case study - we have over 675,000 members, the vast majority of whom have jailbroken one or more iDevices, and we strictly forbid any talk, linking, or mention of pirated apps. I personally have had a jailbroken iPhone longer than nearly anyone here (ModMyi actually created the first ever iPhone "theme"), and I have never pirated an iPhone app. It has always been our standpoint piracy is 100% illegal, and is rude on top of that. Devs spend days and weeks building $2 and $5 apps - if you want them enough to install them, you should pay for them.

Another false argument many people seem to use to argue against jailbreaking is security. I've seen comments all over opposing jailbreak by saying "well these sort of things can bring down a cell network." Or "what if they install a virus." Those activities are also illegal. In fact, any hacker who has root access to an iPhone also has (just as every single one of us does, out of the box) root access to any Mac they purchase, and could do just as much damage from their laptop as they could from an iPhone. More, perhaps. Restricting access to ALL third party software is not a valid security tactic, and in any other OS would be laughable - building a more secure OS is the answer. The only reason it's been questionable this long with the iPhone is a mobile operating system this capable, and robust has never been this publicly widespread. We're in new territory. If Microsoft were to suddenly require all programs in Windows to be purchased/sold ONLY through Micorosoft's own fully independent arbitrary storefront, pundits would be up in arms.

The App Store is a thriving market, and while it's profitability may not be as high as you think, the App Store is a huge driver of hardware sales, which contribute largely to Apple's record profits and revenues, including the $3.25 billion in profit they had this past quarter of $15.7 billion in revenue. You would think Apple would see jailbreaking as a continued push for hardware sales (their highest profit) rather than a threat to it. Even aside from that, jailbreaking and third-party apps can co-exist peacefully with the App Store just as well as the version of Coda I purchased directly from Panic works just fine side by side with the version of iLife I purchased through Apple.

I stress again - illegal activity done by means of jailbreak is and should be just as illegal and prosecutable as illegal activity done from ANY device, including one's laptop/desktop. This has never been put in question, and to equate the two is to speak ignorantly.

I'll pull some content from the official ruling below. What's your take on this?


Here's Apple's argument to the government against the jailbreaking case (from the .pdf linked to here under "For the full rulemaking order:"):

Quote:
Apple responded that jailbreaking by purchasers of the iPhone is a violation of the prohibition against circumvention of access controls. It stated that its validation system is necessary to protect consumers and Apple from harm. Apple further contended that modifying Apple's operating system constituted the creation of an infringing derivative work. Specifically, Apple argued that because purchasers of an iPhone are licensees, not owners, of the computer programs contained on the iPhone, Section 117 of the Copyright Act is inapplicable as an exemption to the adaptation right. Apple further argued that the fair use defense codified in 107 would not apply to jailbreaking activity under the statutory factors.

Based on the record, the Register has determined that the encryption and authentication processes on the iPhone's computer programs are technological measures that control access to the copyrighted work (the firmware) for purposes of 1201(a)(1). Moreover, the Register finds that the evidence supports the contention that a technological protection measure is adversely affecting adding applications to the iPhone. The critical question is whether jailbreaking an iPhone in order to add applications to the phone constitutes a noninfringing use.
There's quite a lot of content in the official ruling, but when we get to the meat of the ruling, it's this:

Quote:
Under the first factor in Section 107, it appears fair to say that the purpose and character of the modification of the operating system is to engage in a private, noncommercial use intended to add functionality to a device owned by the person making the modification, albeit beyond what Apple has determined to be acceptable. The user is not engaging in any commercial exploitation of the firmware, at least not when the jailbreaking is done for the user's own private use of the device.

The fact that the person engaging in jailbreaking is doing so in order to use Apple's firmware on the device that it was designed to operate, which the jailbreaking user owns, and to use it for precisely the purpose for which it was designed (but for the fact that it has been modified to run applications not approved by Apple) favors a finding that the purpose and character of the use is innocuous at worst and beneficial at best. Apple's objections to the installation and use of unapproved applications appears to have nothing to do with its interests as the owner of copyrights in the computer programs embodied in the iPhone, and running the unapproved applications has no adverse effect on those interests. Rather, Apple's objections relate to its interests as a manufacturer and distributor of a device, the iPhone.

Moreover, Congress has determined that reverse engineering for the purpose of making computer programs interoperable is desirable when certain conditions are met, and has crafted a specific exemption from Section 1201(a)'s prohibition on circumvention in such cases. While an iPhone owner who jailbreaks does not fall within the four corners of the statutory exemption in Section 1201(f), the fact that he or she is engaging in jailbreaking in order to make the iPhone's firmware interoperable with an application specially created for the iPhone suggests that the purpose and character of the use are favored.

Turning to the second fair use factor, it is customary for operating systems functional works to enable third party programs to interoperate with them. It does not and should not infringe any of the exclusive rights of the copyright owner to run an application program on a computer over the objections of the owner of the copyright in the computer's operating system. Thus, if Apple sought to restrict the computer programs that could be run on its computers, there would be no basis for copyright law to assist Apple in protecting its restrictive business model. The second factor decisively favors a finding of fair use.

Turning to the third factor, the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, EFF admitted that because the Apple firmware is necessary in order to operate the iPhone, it is necessary for individuals who jailbreak their phones to reuse the vast majority of the original firmware. However, the amount of the copyrighted work modified in a typical jailbreaking scenario is fewer than 50 bytes of code out of more than 8 million bytes, or approximately 1/160,000 of the copyrighted work as a whole. Where the alleged infringement consists of the making of an unauthorized derivative work, and the only modifications are so de minimis, the fact that iPhone users are using almost the entire iPhone firmware for the purpose for which it was provided to them by Apple undermines the significance of this factor. While the third factor arguably disfavors a fair use finding, the weight to be given to it under the circumstances is slight.

Addressing the fourth factor, the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work, EFF asserted that the firmware has no independent economic value, pointing out that the iPhone firmware is not sold separately, but is simply included when one purchases an iPhone. EFF also argued that the ability to lawfully jailbreak a phone will increase, not decrease, overall sales of the phones because users will know that by jailbreaking, they can take advantage of a wider array of third party applications.

Apple responded that unauthorized uses diminish the value of the copyrighted works to Apple. However, Apple is not concerned that the practice of jailbreaking will displace sales of its firmware or of iPhones; indeed, since one cannot engage in that practice unless one has acquired an iPhone, it would be difficult to make that argument. Rather, the harm that Apple fears is harm to its reputation. Apple is concerned that jailbreaking will breach the integrity of the iPhone's ecosystem. The Register concludes that such alleged adverse effects are not in the nature of the harm that the fourth fair use factor is intended to address.

iPhone 4 to Launch in 17 More Countries

 
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 4 in 17 more countries on Friday.
Apple’s iPhone 4 will be available in 17 more countries this Friday, July 30. iPhone 4 features FaceTime, which makes video calling as easy as one tap, Apple’s new Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, resulting in stunning text, images and video, and a beautiful all-new design of glass and stainless steel that is the thinnest smartphone in the world.
The white iPhone 4 has been delayed until “later this year” and there is still a shortage of black iPhones in stores so I wonder how they’re going be able to fulfill the demand. Additionally, iPad screen manufacturer LG said even though it’s currently running at full capacity, the company won’t be able to meet Apple’s demand. That sure is a nice problem to have.

Tip: How to Make Your iPhone 3G Faster on iOS 4

If you have an iPhone 3G running iOS 4, you know how painfully slow your device can be. This is due to the fact that iOS 4 was designed for more powerful devices like the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4.
iPhone hacker Comex tweeted a link to a MMI article showing how you can easily make your iPhone 3G on iOS 4 faster. Apparently, turning off Spotlight Search does the trick.
To do so, go to Settings > General >Home Button > Spotlight Search, then turn off everything and reboot your iPhone.
I don’t have an iPhone 3G so I wasn’t able to verify this but looking at all the positive comments over at MMI, I assume this is working like a charm.
Please try it and let us know how it goes for you.

Government Makes iPhone Jailbreaking and Unlocking Legal

The Associated Press just published an interesting piece titled New Gov’t Rules Allow Unapproved iPhone Apps which seems to announce the legalization of iPhone jailbreaks and unlocks:
Owners of the iPhone will be able to break electronic locks on their devices in order to download applications that have not been approved by Apple. The government is making that legal under new rules announced Monday.
The decision to allow the practice commonly known as “jailbreaking” is one of a handful of new exemptions from a federal law that prohibits the circumvention of technical measures that control access to copyrighted works. Every three years, the Library of Congress authorizes such exemptions to ensure that existing law does not prevent non-infringing use of copyrighted material.
Another exemption will allow owners of used cell phones to break access controls on their phones in order to switch wireless carriers.
This is real big news! Up until today, there was a legal mystery surrounding iPhone jailbreaks and unlocks and even though you owned your iPhone, it wasn’t clear weather jailbreaking/unlocking it was legal or not. It seems it won’t be an issue anymore.
Now the big question is: will Apple be forced to provide a way to jailbreak the iPhone? Can you imagine the irony of the situation?

iPhone 4 Jailbreak and Unlock Won’t Be Released Today

Despite the high expectation that the iPhone 4 jailbreak and unlock might be released today, MuscleNerd confirmed that it will not. Apparently there are issues with important jailbreak apps such as FaceTime that need to be taken care of before the release. Like MuscleNerd says, there is no point releasing a jailbreak and unlock if it’s not stable.
The Dev Team said last week they will release both the jailbreak and unlock for iOS 4 at the same time, so even though ultrasn0w is ready for release, the Team now has to make sure the jailbreak is bug free before making it available to the public.

Survey Shows A Majority of iPhone Owners Happy With AT&T

A recent survey by Yankee Group reports that 73% of iPhone owners are actually happy with AT&T. As a point of comparison, 69% of smartphone users are happy with their providers, which suggests AT&T has a higher satisfaction rate than its competitors.
These results might come as a surprise, especially if you read tech blogs who never miss an occasion to raise their voices against AT&T. Yankee Group explains why…
“Consumers transfer the high gloss of their Apple iPhone experience to AT&T,” says Carl Howe, Yankee Group analyst and author of the study. “The iPhone creates a halo effect that rubs off.”
In other words, iPhone customers’ praise for their network may be a result of the famous “reality distortion field” that surrounds Apple CEO Steve Jobs and his company’s products.
To AT&T, there is a perception problem:
“There’s a gap between what people hear about us and what their experience is with us. We think that gap is beginning to close,” says Mark Siegel, an AT&T spokesman. “It doesn’t mean we’re perfect; we still have work to do. But that’s no surprise to us, because we have a great network.”
Personally I’ve never had any problem with AT&T. You can say I’m one of those 73% of happy AT&T customers.
What about you?

Is Apple Becoming Sloppy?

Is Apple Sloppy
As the holder of a Masters in Advertising, I’ve always appreciated Apple’s marketing machine. No matter what you think about the firm from Cupertino, you have to admit their PR and marketing machine is perfectly oiled. Every word, every product have been thought through to deliver the exact message Steve Jobs & Friends want you to receive.
Lately though, I think Apple kinda lost control of their PR/Marketing machine showing the oh-so-perfect company can be sloppy at times. Here is what I think Apple screwed up in the last couple months.
1. Apple announces the iPhone 4, which will supposedly come in black and white.
2. Rumors going around say the iPhone won’t be available in white at launch. Strangely, Apple doesn’t even deem it necessary to communicate on this.
3. On the iPhone 4 pre-order day, Apple just let us find out by ourselves the white iPhone wasn’t available. Lame.
4. Apple finally decides to speak up and admits the white iPhone won’t be available until mid-July.
5. In the meantime many people start reporting having problems with the iPhone 4 antenna.
6. Steve Jobs sends a cocky reply to the iPhone 4 antenna complainers telling them they don’t know how to hold their phones and they should buy a case.
7. Apple admits the problem comes from the formula used to display bars. They say they will release a software update that will fix this.
8. Apple holds a special event where they pretty much confirm there is no problem with the iPhone 4 antenna. Because there is no problem, they will give away free cases. Wait, what?
9. On the same day, Steve Jobs says the white iPhone will start shipping at the end of July.
10. A few days later, Apple says in a 2-sentence statement that the white iPhone 4 will not be available until later this year.
I think there were communication mistakes on Apple’s part. These antenna and white iPhone episodes could have been killed since day one if they had sent the appropriate information instead of staying silent and closed out.
But hey, at the end of the day, I’ve got my black iPhone 4 which I love, and I also get a free Bumper. So no, I’m not complaining, I’m just laying down facts from the last few weeks.

iPhone 4 Jailbreak and Unlock to Be Released at the Same Time

Jailbreak and Unlock for iPhone 4
In a tweet sent today, MuscleNerd confirmed that the iPhone 4 unlock is ready now but it will only be released whenever the Spirit jailbreak is done, debugged and packaged.
A little earlier, PlanetBeing had sent a similar tweet stating that “we’re gonna be able to give you an unlock with the jailbreak”.
At this point, there is no doubt all the Dev Team is waiting for is Comex to finish up the work on Spirit, which release should be imminent.
There’s been a lot of waiting for the jailbreak and unlock but it seems there is light at the end of the tunnel. The Dev Team obviously doesn’t make us wait on purpose. They simply want to make sure the finished product will be bug free and stable.
Go Dev Team!

Apple Releases iBooks 1.1.2 [No Change log]

Apple released iBooks 1.1.1 from about 4 days ago.
Now, a 1.1.2 update has just appeared in iTunes but the changelog is the same of the last version.


iBook 1.1.2:


Could it be that Apple didn’t want to actually push this update yet, or is it just an temporary error? Also, maybe this is just a bug fixes-related release and Apple forgot to mention it.

Saurik Teases Us With His Jailbroken iPhone4



The guys over at Make It Work were lucky enough to sit down with Saurik, the developer of Cydia, for a few minutes and talk to him about the current iPhone 4 jailbreak situation.
Saurik confirmed that an iPhone 4 jailbreak will be released in the near future, and that Comex, MuscleNerd, and PlanetBeing are working hard on it.
Getting Saurik on video is a pretty rare event so I suggest you check it out.

AT&T Activated Nearly 500,000 3G iPads

AT&T announced that it activated 400,000 to 500,000 3G iPads during Q2 on its earnings call, according to BusinessInsider.

Notably, these numbers only account for the last two months of Q2 as the iPad 3G was released until the end of April.

Other remarks:
  •  It's "surprising" how many business customers are approaching AT&T about the iPad.
  •  iPad users are using more data per month than the typical iPhone customer, but less than the typical laptop-card customer, which makes sense.
  •  75% to 80% of the iPad 3G subscribers are at the more expensive ($25/month) AT&T 3G data plan. Overall monthly bills in the $25-$30 range, including early customers who signed up for the $30/month unlimited plan before it was discontinued.

iOS 4 Installed On 50% of iPhones

iOS Usage High Level
A recent survey by online ad network Chitika reveals that 50% of iPhones are now running iOS 4. iOS 3 is installed on 49% of iPhones, while the 1% remaining still runs the older iOS 2.
Looking more deeply, iOS 4.0 – the version released on June 21st – is the dominant single version at 44.5%. Version 4.0.1 – the latest official release for the iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 – clocks in at only 5% of the market, not surprising given that it was released less than a week ago.
Seeing how slow iOS 4 can make your iPhone 3G, I understand why that many people didn’t update. Another reason might be that people want to keep their jailbreak. I’d be curious to know if iOS 4 adoption goes up once Spirit is released sometimes in the next few days.
What iOS version are you running on your iPhone?
