When I was more active on this blog, I mostly wrote about the iPhone.  Especially jailbreaking.  The cat and mouse, back and forth between the Jailbreaking community and Apple. In time, a completely outside eco system based on Cydia appeared where people could submit apps, store purchase history and get SAAS services all without going… Read More

Tomorrow, Jan 26, if you buy a smart cell phone, its illegal to unlock it to work on a different carrier.  If you already have a phone or buy one today, you are safe.  This has caused many people to think that jailbreaking  will be illegal tomorrow.  No. Jailbreaking is still legal. Which leads to… Read More


I installed Chrome over the weekend.  It seems ok enough although a bit slow.  However, I found that I had to remember to use it.  So I decided to really commit to it and set it as my default browser, through jailbreak of course.  First off its not fast despite what they say. In fact,… Read More

iOS 5.1 dropped last week and of course there were 0-day jailbreaks out there. Redsn0w was kinda ready but not fully.  It’s a tethered jailbreak which means every time you power off your device, you need to connect your device to a computer to boot it up again.  Pain.  But if you messed up and already… Read More


So first off, the post from the dev team blog Only a few weeks after the 4.3.1 untether created by @i0n1c was released, Apple pushed out firmware 4.3.2. Thankfully, it appears Apple didn’t have a chance to fix the hole used by @i0n1c’s untether, so he ported his code over to 4.3.2’s kernel.  Today’s redsn0w has… Read More


Wow, I jailbreak day.. a jailbreak afternoon.  Been downloading .greenpois0n.com to jailbreak my 4.2.6 iphone and today just saw QuickPwn Jailbreak for 3.1.1 (for Mac only).  And now via that twitterverse, most @TaimurAsad, I heard that Cydia has got a major update going to 1.1.  Nice!  Its reported that cydia will be faster and fix… Read More


Gezz.  Things move so bloody fast.  I think we all expected the ipad2 to be hacked and jailbroken pretty quick, but it did not even take the weekend to crack this nut.   The hacker Comex, who also did the userland jailbreaks Spirit and JailbreakMe, has released tweets and a video showing an ipad2 running cydia.… Read More

I read a post from Dean Takahashi at VentureBeat that a hacker called pod2g has hacked iOS4.1.  However, I would not upgrade to 4.1 until something official comes from Dev-team and on last check there is nothing yet but a warning NOT to update to 4.1. And really readers I have been saying this for… Read More
