Unlock iPhone, Jailbreak iPhone and iPhone Unlocking

iPhone 3Gs Unlock - 3.0 Firmware

6/28/2009 02:54:00 PM - 4 comments

How many of you have been using the Apple iPhone, but have never tried to unlock it? Is it because you are happy with what you have or are you apprehensive of experiencing ‘a revolution’? Well, I’d say, it’s true as we sometimes resort to the famous saying ‘Ignorance is bliss’; but what about missing the fun and adventure when the whole of iPhone world goes crazy about iPhone unlocking and iPhone Jailbreak.

I have tried to make a careful study about the apprehensions regarding the unlocking or jailbreaking of iPhone; and the results I found are quite startling. It is not always that people are happy with what they have, but they still do not want to try unlocking. Most of the iPhone user’s apprehension to opt for iPhone unlocking or Jailbreaking is due to their lack of proper knowledge or clarity of concepts relating to the same. Many of them I spoke to weren’t too sure about the differences between Unlock iPhone and Jailbreak.

Unlock iPhone vs. Jailbreak

Well, iPhone jailbreaking refers to the process that allows the installation of 3rd party applications on iPhone, and it’s applicable to all versions of firmwares. While, unlocking iPhone refers to the process which allows your iPhone to open up and accept all carriers, i.e. you can use the service of any carriers and is no longer bound to Apple’s 1 iPhone 1 carrier policy. This gives the iPhone users a wider choice and puts to rest the monopoly of a single carrier (viz. AT&T) approved by Apple.

Although there is a cloud of doubt about the credibility of jailbreak iPhone or the actual need for third party applications in presence of the App Store, here are a few reasons why:

You can Install 3rd party applications via Cydia and Installer

It is undoubtedly true that the App Store has some of the path breaking application in store for you. However, you really need to come across through Cydia and Installer to actually know what you have been missing all along. Do you know, many of the iPhone applications that could not make it to the App Store due to certain technical reasons pertaining to Apple’s T&C have been highly applauded and are doing brisk business on Cydia. A few such app include

* iPhoneModem – Use of iPhone as modem, and even connect your laptop to Internet via iPhone
* MxTube – Download and save YouTube video on iPhone
* Mame4iPhone – Play arcade game on iPhone
* NemusSync – Sync iPhone calendar with Google Calendar

Winterboard themes - Change the Look & Feel of your iPhone

If you think the regular icons that come with iPhone is boring, here’s a reason for you to jailbreak iPhone. A jailbreak iPhone allows you to use Winterboard and choose to apply theme on iPhone to make your own style statement.

iPhone Geeks can have Full control of your iPhone

Not of much interest to the non-techies though, for geeks, securing full control of the iPhone to carry out further research and development and is the ardent need to jailbreak iPhones. Moreover, with iPhone jailbreak, you can also install a lightweight version of HTTP server and other similar servers. One of the most popular servers amongst Jailbreak iPhone users is a SSH daemon. The best part about SSH is that, you can connect to iPhone remotely and transfer any file to/from it.
Unlock iPhone to know what you have been missing!

Ask anyone why they Jailbreak and the most common answer will be ‘To Unlock’.

After every release of a new software or software version many user complain about it's childhood illnesses. So they do after the release of iPhone OS 3.0. One of those is a quite strange one. It seems that the OS 3.0 plays something like 'musical chairs' with the application's icons. This is quite annoying because the application you open has the icon of another application and most of the iPhone users recognize the apps only because of their icon. So it could happen that you open a wrong application. It seems that the only way to get rid of this issue is to restore your phone. We hope that Apple fixes this bug as soon as possible.

All you need to do is just sketch the features on your iPhone with your fingers and GazoPa, the iPhone app for finding online images will do it for you.

Since the launch of Gazopa for iPhone Application by Hitachi early this year in April, the iPhone application has been quite a rage. Thanks to its amazing feature that allows users to search for similar images on the web, just by uploading any photo captured with camera on iPhone.

This has been highly popular with iPhone users since they can search for any images similar to what they see in front of them, without typing any words. In short, GazoPa iPhone app enables you to draw an image with your finger, take a photo with the iPhone camera, or load a source image stored on your iPhone and find images that match the original.

There is also provision of searching similar images using user's drawing as well. This way, GazoPa iPhone App allows the search of images which the user has in mind and has drawn it by visualization. Because, many a times you might see something and it leaves an impression in your mind; but becomes hard to find a similar image, nor do you get words to exactly describe it.

GazoPa Features at a glance

- GazoPa is compatible with any iPhone or second-generation iPod touch running the iPhone 2.2.1 software update or later.

- Apart from images found using keyword searches, GazoPa also allows users' own photos and drawings, and images found on the Web, as search keys to locate similar images.

- GazoPa can support not only photos but also the search of video thumbnails.

- The search of images is made possible by using image features such as color, layout, shape and the ability to filter by size.

- The app works by analyzing the angles and lines of the source image and finding matches online. On finding the required image, you can view it on your phone (from within GazoPa) or in the mobile Safari browser. You can also e-mail the match to anyone or store it in your camera roll.

- The app searches support both images and video. You can search either images or only videos. An image-size setting is also available. The best part is that, you can reposition the source image and zoom in or out to improve results while searching.

- The tool also has a safe search setting which is believed to weed out explicit photos and videos. However, Hitachi has indicated that there are still some flaws like in the app’s filter, which have been worked on.

How GazoPa App works

GazoPa iPhone App works by analyzing the angles and lines of the source image and searching for relevant matches online. On the realization of your required image, you can view it on your iPhone (from within GazoPa) or in the mobile Safari browser. You can also store the match for future use and even e-mail it to others as well.

GazoPa offers excellent customization options by which you can control search criteria such as color, layout, shape, and face that will determine the kinds of results you see. Moreover, the app also allows repositioning of the source image and zoom in or out to improve results, other than a setting called ‘image-size’

iPhone OS 3.0 Will Allow Redownloading of Apps

6/14/2009 10:25:00 AM - 4 comments
Have you installed iTunes 8.2 and synced it to your computer authorized with your iTunes account? Well, these are the priorities for re-downloading of purchased applications for free in the iPhone 3.0 firmware.
iPhone 3G S - v 3.0
A couple of weeks ago, it so happened that users when running the iPhone OS 3.0 beta discovered that they were unable to re-download the iPhone applications which they had purchased. This was in spite of the message from the App Store which clearly stated “You've already purchased this. You can redownload it for free on your computer, or tap Buy to buy it again”.

In spite of that, users were not able to re-download it. On further investigation, it was found that ‘not all’ iPhone users were deprived of the re-downloading facility. A careful study of the issue revealed that this message is only meant for users who had not updated to the new iTunes 8.2 software.

This new version further adds some logic that notifies a device what iTunes accounts are authorized on the computer. Many users who were using the beta releases of iTunes were not prompted with an available update and found no reason to upgrade. At the same time, those users’ devices were never getting the authorization information to pass on to the App Store when they tried re-downloading apps.

However, some users are also receiving the old message which instructed them to go and re-download the app for free. Well, you now know what was stopping you from re-downloading the app. Go for it.

Yahoo! Messenger iPhone app latest feature - ‘Press and Speak’

6/05/2009 04:56:00 PM - 0 comments
It has not been too long ago when Yahoo! Messenger for the iPhone was launched amidst much fanfare. And, for all those who are following this development minutely, here’s good news for you all. Yahoo! Messenger for iPhone v. 1.1 will now come with voice search.

Yahoo! seems to be quite committed and excited about the response its new iPhone app has generated in this short period. Reports indicate that Yahoo! is also contemplating reprioritizing some products also, as a means to offer a better user-experience to its consumers on mobile. There is also news doing the rounds that Yahoo! has taken quick and appropriate action in fixing up some log-in issues experienced by some users in Yahoo! Messenger for iPhone v. 1.1.

Moreover, the addition of this new feature of ‘voice search’ can be considered the first step forward in its realization of offering improved technology and services to its consumers.

‘Press and Speak’ feature from Yahoo! Messenger iPhone app

According to a recent report, Yahoo! has already added its voice-enabled search program to its iPhone app. However, the new capability is yet to arrive on an iPhone through an update, as it is still being rolled out. For all those who can’t wait to experience this indomitable ‘voice search’ feature from Yahoo app can download it free right now from iTunes app store.

The best part of this new feature is that Yahoo Mobile 1.1 for iPhone and iPod Touch enables voice searches in all the places wherever the search bar is located in the app. All you have to do is press the oneSearch field; you will be able to see the large gray tab prompting you to ‘Press and Speak’ your inquiry. You can already find the voice recognition, called oneSearch, available for Windows Mobile, Nokia and BlackBerry phones.

Voice Recognition app: Google vs. Yahoo!

The voice recognition or ‘voice search’ feature in Yahoo! iPhone app invites comparison with the Google app for the iPhone, which also has similar voice recognition feature. The basic difference with Google's voice app is that, while Google's voice app by all appearances allows permission to break Apple's development rules, the Yahoo! iPhone app does not allow you to bring the phone closer to your ear to activate the voice prompt.

At a Glance: The other Yahoo! Messenger iPhone 1.1 features

Custom status message:
 You can set in your online status by typing a message of your choice (including a web link).

Instant Messaging:
 This is the main function of Yahoo! Messenger that allows you to network with your friends via IM.

Photo Sharing:
 Share photos (stored in iPhone or a ‘just clicked’ picture) with your contacts.

Special idle state:
 The app automatically sets your status to “Idle” when you have moved away to another browser from IM.

Stealth Settings:
 You can stay invisible even when you are online and can even choose user(s) who can see you when you are available.

Report a Problem” feature:
 This feature has been recently introduced to help you convey any of your YM usage problems to the Messenger team. You can view the tab “Report a Problem”, under the Settings icon.

Recent conversations archive:
 You can choose to save and store recent conversation with your contacts for future reference.

Landscape keyboard mode:
 This very useful mode of the app allows you to just flip the iPhone on its side and type away.

The general mood amongst iPhone users availing Yahoo! Messenger services is quite optimistic and ecstatic. They are hopeful that this iPhone app will prove to an asset for all those who are on the move and need to keep connected to their base.

Rumor: Is this the new iPhone?

6/04/2009 03:04:00 PM - 1 comments
A few days before WWDC it seems that everybody wants to tell us how the next iPhone could look like. This is quite confusing! But now iSpazio, an italian iPhone Blog, shows two fotos, which they got from tipsters. Both show a hazy screenshot from Apple's development web server. The first picture shows the 'new' iPhone with a front camera, a higher speaker and the new app 'voice Memo'. You can also see that the next generation iPhone may be totally black. The second one shows the ability to use internet tethering on your iPhone. Are the Pictures fake or not? We'll have to wait until monday to get an answer to this question.

Apple Releases iTunes 8.2 with Support for iPhone 3.0

6/03/2009 08:29:00 PM - 0 comments

The iPhone world has been rife with buzz about the soon to be made released smartphone operating system. However, all speculations were put to rest by Apple Inc. on Monday, June 1, 2009, when it officially released iTunes 8.2 with support for iPhone 3.0. This is indeed a positive indication for the soon-to-come smartphone operating system.

All eyes are on the Worldwide Developers Conference (WDC) to be held at San Francisco the following week (June 8-12, 2009) and there is high optimism in the technology circuit that Apple might release iPhone 3.0 out of beta in this much-awaited event. However, there has been no official confirmation yet about Apple’s plans on the same.

Analysts believe that the Monday’s release of the iTunes 8.2 makes the probabilities for the release of the iPhone 3.0 even more likely. Another indication comes in the form of Apple appealing to developers to develop programs compatible to the forthcoming OS, and will only then be accepted at the App Store. Many consider this as part of Apple’s bigger marketing strategy to gradually prepare the industry and the consumers of its forthcoming product.

Reviews: Thumbsup for iPhone 3.0

Since the introduction of iPhone 3.0 in March 2009, which is presently in beta; expectations have been quite high on this new software. Several new features have been introduced in this new version of the software, which are mainly considered to be consumer friendly - a universal search function, cut and paste and multimedia text capabilities.

Apart from these, iPhone 3.0 also opens up opportunities for peer-to-peer multiplayer capabilities and apps with third-party hardware, along with more innovative and lucrative apps by enabling in-app purchasing. Apple Inc. also takes pride in adding new features to its V1 wireless headset. It allows the user issue voice commands that can control the headset as well as the cell phone. Generally speaking, it’s a win-win state and appropriately thumbsup for iPhone 3.0.

iTunes 8.2 to offer apt support for iPhone 3.0

iTunes 8.2, which is an update to its music jukebox software and online store interface for the Mac and Windows is slated to support iPhones and iPod Touches equipped with the iPhone 3.0 software update. You can easily download it through the Software Update system preference. Apple has also indicated that other improvements related to accessibility and bug fixes have also been made.

iPhone-Dev Team Forbids Potential Jailbreaker ‘Not to Install iTunes 8.2’

With the official release of Apple iTunes 8.2 comes along a stern warning to all the prospective iPhone jailbreakers - ‘Avoid installing iTunes 8.2 for the time being’.
