Consumer Reports will Not Recommend Verizon iPhone 4 Due To Antennagate Issues

2/28/2011 09:38:00 PM - 0 comments

Despite the fact that the Verizon iPhone 4 gained so much popularity and ranked as one of the most highly wanted smartphone today, Consumer Reports this week stated that they cannot recommend the recently released Verizon iPhone 4 to its readers due to it having the same antenna and poor reception issues as the GSM iPhone 4 released last year.

For those of you who aren’t aware, the antennagate or antenna attenuation is the significant; loss of cellular signal of the iPhone when held in a “death grip” position or when connected to a 3G, CDMA or LTE network. Just a recall, in June 2010 the product review magazine refuses to render its recommendation to Apple on its GSM iPhone 4 due to its widely publicized poor reception issues. And to resolve this issue, the Cupertino, California-based Apple completely reengineered and redesigned the iPhone’s antenna. But unfortunately, it seems like they failed to do it.

From Consumer Reports:

"The Verizon iPhone 4 has a problem that could cause the phone to drop calls, or be unable to place calls, in weak signal conditions, Consumer Reports engineers have found in lab tests."

"The problem is similar to the one we confirmed in July with the AT&T version of Apple’s newest smart phone. It can occur when you hold either version of the phone in a specific but quite natural way in which a gap in the phone’s external casing is covered. The phone performs superbly in most other respects, and using the iPhone 4 with a case can alleviate the problem."

Few weeks ago, tech site iLounge discovered the flaw and posted a video of what they said were the result of the “Death Hug” or the loss of Wi-Fi signal when the device was held in certain position.

The prolific and highly skilled Apple’s product designer Jonathan Ive, Apple's senior VP in charge of industrial design and the main man behind the iconic Apple product iPhone and iPod Touch, is set to receive a whooping £18M (about $30 million) as result of windfall from Apple’s company shares, a report claims. According to Mail Online reports:

“Said to be the result of a 2008 ‘golden handcuffs’ deal which tied him to Apple for three years, the money will propel legendary creator Jonathan Ive into the ranks of The Sunday Times Rich List with a fortune of more than £80M.”

However, word has it that the Cupertino, California-based apple is less keen on his designer returning to his homeland in United Kingdom, which he is also reportedly planning to do. Overall though, Ive is reportedly due to receive £25m (£15.5m) in shares, which he was manage to buy for £7m, due t the 2008 'golden handcuffs' deal that tied him to the company for three fiscal years.

“The deal was agreed in the midst of the financial crash when Apple shares plummeted to £65; they are now worth around £213, helped by the phenomenal success of the products Ive has designed, the latest of which – the iPad 2 – launches this week.”

The Sunday Times is reporting that despite Ive’s 'rock star' status the company is opposing his plan to 'commute' from his £2.5m manor house in Somerset.

A friend of Ive's said, "Unfortunately he is just too valuable to Apple and they told him in no uncertain terms that if he headed back to England he would not be able to sustain his position with them."

    GeoHot Raised Enough Money To Fight Against Sony

    2/23/2011 07:30:00 PM - 0 comments

    We all know that the notorious iPhone hacker named George Hotz, or most commonly known as GeoHot, is dealing with a hhuge problem right now, SONY! And if we we’re playing a video game we need a lot of mana to win the battle, and if we don’t have much mana we need to get some “coins” to buy mana. Earlier this week, GeoHot has just publish a new blog post on his new blog "GeoHot Got Sued" to thank his fans / supporters who gave him a donation to support him against Sony.

    For those of you who don’t don't know, Sony sued GeoHot for jailbreaking the company’s flagship PlayStation 3 and for distributing a Homebrew app. Sony believed that jailbreaking and distributing Homebrew app for PlayStation 3 is a piracy and Sony claims that GeoHot broke the law and promotes piracy. Two days ago GeoHot started to as for his fans for legal funds to continue the legal battle with Sony.

    “Thank you so so much for all of your help, things are looking up money wise.
    Expect to see a few more lawyers on my responses!
    I have enough to cover my legal fees for the time being.
    And in the absolute worst case scenario, we don’t want Sony getting it :-P

    For now, the best thing you can do is spread the word
    Let people know how Sony treats customers
    Let people know Sony would rather sue than be proactive and try to fix the problem
    Let people know about laws like the DMCA which stifle innovation, and don’t do anything to fix the problems they were created to solve”
    GeoHot has announced that he had accumulated enough funds, but there is possibility that he will ask for our support in the near future, or until the war between him and Sony is not over. Anyway, you can visit GeoHot’s new site to know more about the issue.

    Sn0wbreeze 2.2 for will allow users who want to jailbreak as well as unlock their iPhone to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.2.1 ipsw / firmware while preserving the unlockable baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using the latest version Ultrasn0w carrier unlocking tool. Just like PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze 2.2 also incorporates the kernel based Greenpois0n exploit to achieve untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak.


    • Sn0wbreeze 2.2
    • iOS 4.2.1
    • iTunes 10.1.2

    Untethered Jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G with Sn0wbreeze 2.2

    Step 1: Download and use the latest version of iTunes (version 10.1.2). Download iOS 4.2.1 and the recently launched Sn0wbreeze 2.2 from this link.

    Step 2: Launch iTunes and sync your iOS device with your PC so that it backs-up all your important data, which includes your settings, contacts, photos, music, and photos.

    Step 3: Launch Sn0wbreeze 2.2 jailbreak tool.

    Step 4: Connect your iOS device into the computer via USB

    Step 5: A splash screen will appear and it will tell that the software is not for commercial use. Just click OK and click on the blue arrow to continue.

    Step 6: Now, point Sn0wbreeze to the stock iOS 4.2.1 that you downloaded. Just click on “Browse” and select it and click the blue arrow. Please wait while the application is identifying your iOS device and model by examining the firmware file.

    Step 7: Now select Simple Mode then Continue

    • Baseband Preservation Mode: This mode only preserves the iPhone's baseband. It does not jailbreak or unlock the actual device. All other modes still do preserve the baseband.
    • Simple Mode: Recommended for people that don't know what to add. This mode will add Cydia, afc2, SSH for Apple TV and other recommended stuff automatically.
    • Expert Mode: Expert mode let you have all customizing options at your disposal. Such as custom boot logos, root partition size, installer options and unlocke.

    Step 8: You are almost done.

Wait till Snwbreeze done cooking your firmware. When it’s done you’ll be given a confirmation. It’ll append the name sn0wbreeze before the filename of the custom OS such as iPhone 4 - 4.2.1

    Step 11: iTunes will ask for the firmware file. Just point it to the custom firmware you just build using sn0wbreeze 2.2 and sit back. iTunes will restore iOS to your device and when it finally restarts after the process is done, it’ll be jailbroken.

    That’s it! Done! You can now unlock you iDevice using Ultrasn0w. Since sn0wbreeze 2.2 preserves baseband while creating the custom firmware, you can unlock your iPhone using the latest version of Ultrasn0w (version 1.2). This can be done if you’re on baseband 06.15.00 on iPhone 3G/3GS or baseband 01.59.00 on iPhone 4. If you are currently on baseband 05.14.00 or 05.15.00, you need to update to 06.15.00.


    Future iPhone Will be Cheaper, Not Smaller - Apple To Offer Free MobileMe Service

    2/21/2011 07:10:00 PM - 1 comments

    According to numerous and well-known tech site such as CultofMac, Bloomberg, and The Wall Street Journal reports that the Cupertino, California-based apple is currently working on a smaller and cheaper iPhone dubbed as iPhone nano / mini and it will hit the market shelves by summer this year alongside with the fifth-generation iPhone. But now we came to know that Apple is considering a cheaper iPhone model to boost its marketshare and will develop a new model of iPhone, a regular size iPhone.

    The report suggests that this Cupertino-based iPhone maker is working on an improved iPhone 5 and an a new iPhone with less memory and maybe a lower resolution screen which can sell for cheap in order to effectively compete against Google’s Android-based smartphones. According to New York Times report:

    Apple has been exploring ways to broaden the appeal of the iPhone by making the popular device less expensive and allowing users to control it with voice commands.

    But contrary to published reports, Apple is not currently developing a smaller iPhone, according to people briefed on Apple’s plans who requested anonymity because the plans are confidential.

    Another person who is in direct contact with Apple also said that the company would not make a smaller iPhone at this time, in part because a smaller device would not necessarily be much cheaper to manufacture and because it would be more difficult to operate.

    More important, a phone with a smaller screen would force many developers to rewrite their apps, which Apple wants to avoid, the person said.

    The NYTimes also reports that apple’s engineers are busy in completing the fifth-generation iPhone 5 which is going to be released in summer this year, and in contrary with the rumors that Apple will adopt the 4-inch or larger size smart phones, the report suggests that iPhone 5 will be same as the size of iPhone 4, 3.7 inch.

    The report also provides some new and very interesting info regarding MobileMe. The report states that Apple will offer MobileMe service with no extra costs in order to compete with free competing services of Microsoft and Google.

    “Another person with knowledge of Apple’s plans said that the company was actively building a more versatile version of its MobileMe service, which allows users to store music, photos and files online and have them accessible on all their devices.”

    “The current version of MobileMe, which costs $100 a year, has failed to catch on with consumers. Rivals like Google and others offer similar services free."

Other reports have claimed that there may be a 7 inch model of the iPad but this again has yet to be confirmed.

    The iPad 2 is also going to have dual GSM/CDMA chipset and this was reported by Engadget recently. This means that you can get the iPad on both AT&T and Verizon. There have also been reports about a camera for FaceTime calls. The new iPad is going to be thinner and lighter that we know and there should be at least one camera on the front of the device too.

    Most of the time when downloading a game / app in iTunes App Store, especially if we are not familiar with the game, all we need in order to decei that we want the game is its full game title: The Kraken: The Simulation Application for Nautical Maneuvering.

The concept is that you 'experience the perils they first encountered of bringing this fine product to the world', with extras such as 'Actual Distress Cries of Fallen Seamen.'

    Harnessing the natural aquatic properties of your hand-held apparatus, navigate your ship through an array of hazards, being careful not to be waylaid by One, as the mighty Kraken will not twice ponder your permanent removal from the map – by means of devouring.

    Some of the key futures of the game include:

    • Instructions Given By Prof. Thornton Cumberbatch, Undersea Oddity Specialist.
    • Spectacular Accelerometer-sensitive Ship Maneuverability.
    • Multiple Uncannily Realistic Hazards (Brace Yourself Accordingly.)
    • Three Remarkably True-to-Legend Kraken Perish Scenarios.
    • Fall-Off-The-Edge-of-Earth Accuracy
    • Actual Distress Cries of Fallen Seamen
    • Hand-etched Art, Etched by Real Hands.
    • Success Rewards Participant with Simulated Glass of Black Spiced Rum.
    • Original Musical Composition by, Master of Orchestras, Christopher Hicken.
    • Animation created by Madam Ariane Irle.

    The Kraken: The Simulation Application for Nautical Maneuvering is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad running on iOS 4.1 or later. The game can be downloaded in iTunes App Store for free of costs.

    Greenpois0n RC6.1 has now been released and it is now available for download for both Mac OS X and Windows users. The hackers behind the Chronic Dev Team have just updated their Greenpois0n software jailbreak tool to version RC6.1 which now incorporates iBooks app fix that was developed co-iPhone hacker Comex.
    Recently, iBooks Error was reported by numerous jailbroken iOS device users who complaining about the issue they experienced when try to open some of their purchased eBooks in the iBooks app. It is speculated that the Cupertino, California-based Apple is testing some anti-jailbreaking code to detect if an iOS is jailbroken or not, and this code is embedded on iBooks app. Fortunately, iPhone Dev Team’s Comex has figured it out and has solved the issue in the new updated version on GreenPois0n RC6.1.

    Well, you can also configure the iBooks issue which the help of a new jailbreak app called iBooks Fix which can be downloaded for free in Cydia App Store.

    For those who don’t know, just want to inform you that both PwnageTool 4.2 (Mac OS X) and Sn0wbreeze 2.2 (Windows) is now available for download and also incorporates Comex’s iBooks fix. So you can also use any of these three tools to fix iBooks issues. However if you rely on Ultrasn0w software carrier unlock, you should stay away from Greenpois0nm as it will update the baseband of your iPhone to unlockable baseband and you will lose the ability to unlock. But if just want to jailbreak I suggest using Greenpois0n because it is less confusing and fairly easy to use.

    You can download Greenpois0n RC6.1 using this link. Stay tuned.
