Iphone 5 Untethered Jailbreak For iOS 6 Update

12/31/2012 09:03:00 AM - 0 comments

Since the launch of iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 there have been so many people waiting on an untethered jailbreak. There will also be plenty of people who will have received an iPhone 5 or other new iOS device for Christmas and they too will also be asking whether there is any untethered iOS 6 jailbreak available.

It probably comes as no surprise that the iOS community have grown restless with the lack of a jailbreak for iOS 6 and the trouble is that once you become accustomed to using a jailbroken device with all the tweaks that are available, a stock device just doesn't feel right. The casual swipe to open SBSettings, having a Notification Center on the lock screen, enhanced messaging functions or multitasking switchers are just some of the things that many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users have been missing since upgrading to iOS 6.

Apple have really stepped up their game with iOS 6 and this release is proving to be a very tough nut for the jailbreak community to crack. To make things even worse, i0n1c believes that the upcoming iOS 6.1 is going to be even more tough to exploit. All is not lost though and it seems like Planetbeing is still working on putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team has warned against updating to iOS 6.0.2 if you are still holding out hope for a jailbreak solution for iOS 6.0.1.

At the moment there is no untethered iOS 6 and iPhone 5 jailbreak available but you will probably find lots of fake jailbreak tools on the market so we advise you to avoid these at all costs. Until one of the respected jailbreak developers actually approves a jailbreak don't be fooled into buying anything. If you see a jailbreak release for iOS 6 be sure to check back with us because if it is legitimate we will have it covered here.

If you are one of the many that owns a pre A5 device such as the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G, you can still get a tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze but for anyone with an A5 device we are afraid there is no good news to report and we suspect that we won't have a jailbreak for iOS 6 until after iOS 6.1 is released.

Cycloramic For iPhone Lets Users Capture 360 Degree Panoramic Videos Hands Free

12/28/2012 09:20:00 AM - 0 comments

Every so often we see an app for the iPhone that everyone wants to own. Well one of those apps has arrived and it's called Cycloramic. This app allows iPhone 5 users to capture a street view type of video of their surroundings without even touching their device. This is an app that is going to be very entertaining at parties and social gatherings.

Cycloramic has been designed with the iPhone 5 in mind and is actually quite unique. It requires iOS 6 to function and it will open and run on the iPhone 4 or 4S even though it has been developed with the lighter form factor and new vibrating motor of the iPhone 5 in mind. The feature set of the app requires that your device be standing vertically unaided so it won't work with any of the iPod touch models.

The Cycloramic app allows users to use either the front facing or rear camera to capture 360 degree views of their surroundings and then have the footage stored on the device's camera roll in the form of a short video. The app does all this without any interaction from the user after the initial capture instruction. Standing the iPhone 5 upright on a smooth hard surface and then tapping GO makes the device vibrate at a certain frequency to rotate the phone and capture video as it goes.

All you have to do is install the app, launch it and set your device on a hard polished surface before pressing go. This app is available for just $0.99 but at that price it is worth getting just to see how much fun you can have.

Ipad 5 To Be Released In March 2013

12/26/2012 10:17:00 AM - 0 comments

Apple want to bring the full sized iPad which has a 9.7 inch screen in line with their recently released iPad mini. To do this they are reportedly planning to announce and release a fifth generation of the iPad in March of 2013. This speculated release date is notable because it means that the next iPad will be released just five months after the current model was announced. This also means that Apple will have releaesed the third, fourth and fifth generation models in a 12 month period.

The fifth generation iPad information comes courtesy of Macotakara which is a Japanese blog which has been very active in the iPad prediction market over the past twelve months. They have also claimed that the fifth generation iPad will bring the device more in line with the aesthetics of the iPad mini by making it lighter and thinner as well as slightly changing the device's shell.

This rumor also seems to fall in line with speculations that Apple could be changing tactics in favor of a six monthly release cycle for the iPad rather than releasing new hardware every twelve months. It is unclear as to how consumers will feel about this though because it will mean that a new version of their device will be released every six months and it could lead to a dramatic fall in sales as consumers realize that their product will be outdated after just a couple of months of use.

In relation to the overall specifications fo the upcoming fifth generation iPad, there is no information available. It is likely that we will see an upgrade and major improvements to the iPad mini in the coming year with the introduction of a retina display and an improved processor ripped straight from the fourth generation iPad, but as yet we really don't know.

For now, this is all the information we have received but we are sure that once the new year arrives the rumor mill will begin and information will start to become available.

Jailbreak iOS 6.1 Beta 4 On iPhone Using Redsn0w

12/19/2012 10:00:00 AM - 0 comments

As is the case with all beta releases of Apple software, this upgrade is only available to registered developers who are enrolled in the iOS development program. The good news that quite often comes with these beta releases is that those same developers can also enjoy a tethered jailbreak and for iOS 6.1 beta 4 this tethered jailbreak comes thanks to Redsn0w.

This latest iOS 6.1 beta 4 release can be jailbroken using Redsn0w and will immediately be of benefit to those who have installed or are planning to install the update on their A4 device or older. Compatible devices for this tethered jailbreak include the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the fourth generation iPod touch. All of these devices are susceptilbe to the Limera1n exploit. Those who own the iPhone 5 or fifth generation iPod touch will have to wait until the dev teams come up with a solution that will provide a tethered or untethered jailbreak.

Althought a large number of people have already upgraded their iOS devices to an iteration that is not currently supported by this jailbreak, it is always nice to know that those who are clutching onto older Apple hardware will always have at least a tethered jailbreak solution no matter what. This is all thanks to the historical bootrom exploit which Apple cannot patch due to its hardware nature.

Redsn0w hasn't released an official update for this fourth beta release, but if you point the software to the older 6.0 firmware file it will still work for this latest beta version. We have to point out, that Redsn0w will only provide a tethered jailbreak for A4 devices and this means that all compatible devices that are jailbroken on iOS 6.1 beta 4 will need to be connected to your PC or Mac and have Redsn0w run again to reboot them into a jailbroken state if they ever power down.

Download iOS 6.1 Beta 4 For Developers Now

12/17/2012 11:56:00 AM - 0 comments

Apple's iOS 6 has promised so much but the initial release hasn't gone as smoothly as expected. First off we had a problem with the native Maps app which was meant to replace Google Maps. This has caused a lot of problems and has been revised and re-released in the App store last week. IOS 6.1 Beta 4 has now been released to developers.

The first beta release of iOS 6.1 came at the beginning of last month and many improvements have been made behind the scenes. If you are a developer you can now download this version from Apple's Developer Program.

The easiest way to apply this new update is by taking the OTA via settings. This will of course only show up if you are a developer running a prior iOS 6.1 beta. As well as the release of iOS 6.1 Beta 4, Apple has also seeded an updated preview of Xcode 4.6. The development enviromnent for iOS SDK makes tailoring apps for the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch a great deal easier. As well as this, a new Apple TV beta has also been released to developers.

These early beta builds usually start to appear on various different channels not long after they have been seeded. We do recommend avoid these and advise that you take the legitimate route in signing up as a developer. It doesn't cost that much and it allows you to view all the pre-release software from Apple including iOS, iTunes and some other goodies too.

For the end user out there reading this post, iOS 6.1 is expect to be released to the public sometime in January 2013 and will have improvement to the Maps app and much more. Passbook is also expected to offer a more streamlined experience when dealing with boarding passing. There have been plenty of bug fixes too. We will of course keep you updated on what to expect with iOS 6.1 and as soon as it is released we will give you all the details.

Enjoy The iOS 6 Experience on iPhone 3G With Whited00r 6

12/12/2012 11:22:00 AM - 0 comments

If you are one of the many who find it difficult and too expensive to keep up with the latest iPhone releases then this post is for you. Most iPhone users have one of the older devices. Whited00r has given these older devices a freshen up by offering a utility that makes the older devices appear as if they are running on the newer firmware. Whited00r has now been updated for iOS 6.

You probably already know that iOS 6 only reaches back as far as the iPhone 3GS but there are plenty of people who still have the older iPhone 2G and 3G as well as the older iPod Touch. Whited00r for iOS 5 came earlier this year allowing all those people to install portions of iOS 5 onto their older devices. The newly updated utility offers a couple of great features.

The notification center is available and a replica of Apple's iCloud service. If you are stuck with an older device you can now use this iOS 6 lookalike firmware which is available at the official Whited00r website. You will need to have a jailbroken device before you can use the newly updated version of Whited00r but once you have that sorted you are ready to go.

Next iOS Software Update Will See Apple TV Set Receive External Bluetooth Keyboard Support

12/10/2012 02:47:00 PM - 0 comments

Many people have assumed that the Apple TV unit was merely just a hobby for Apple and that is doesn't take away their focus from their important products such as the iPhone and the iPad. It does seem thought that Apple are paying more attention to this little black set top box and this is going to become even more evident with the next iOS update. The next iOS software update is going to see the addition of Bluetooth support for the Apple TV set top box.

It was almost twelve months ago when the code for this was discovered in the Apple TV iOS code base and this alerted us to the fact that Apple was planning on adding support to allow users to connect Bluetooth devices to the Apple TV. It now seems that this is about to become a reality. The lastest beta release of iOS for the Apple TV brings with it a dedicated Bluetooth menu that wasn't in previous releases. It also allows users to connect Bluetooth enabled wireless keyboards directly to the unit which negates the need for using the infrared controller.

When you take into consideration that a lot of Apple TV owners also own a Mac and will have one of Apple's official Bluetooth wireless keyboards, it comes as a very welcome surprize to see official connectivity support coming in the next release of iOS for the device. Now rather than having to fiddle with the small silver remote that comes with the Apple TV, users will be able to use the navigation keys on the keyboard to whizz through the menu. More importantly though, they will be able to type directly on the keyboard for text entry rather than having to rely on the software based keyword or using the Apple Remote app from an iOS device.

Early testing of the iOS beta for the Apple TV has shown the Apple has only added the ability to pair Bluetooth keyboards with the unit and it doesn't allow the connect from bluetooth speakers or headphones. We don't yet know if Apple plan to open the Bluetooth protocol up to additional devices or whether they want to keep it only for their wireless keyboards. Either way though, we see it as a step in the right direction and as welcome news for all Apple TV owners.

How To Fix Purple Haze Problem On iPhone 5 Camera

12/07/2012 02:42:00 PM - 0 comments

More and more people have been reporting an issue with purple haze on the new iPhone 5 camera. Whilst this camera has only been moderately improved with the new iPhone 5, this issue has been causing problems for many. Apple initially claimed that users were holding their devices incorrectly when taking pictures but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Case makers have attempted to amend the issued and the CamHoodie did a pretty good job of removing the purple mist. The App Store developers are now trying their hand at sorting the problem too. This comes in the form of the Camera Fix which is a cheap solution for those looking to reduce the appearance of this purple haze when pictures are taken at a certain angle. This little fix costs $0.99 at the App Store and claims to be the first app to solve the purple mist problem on photos.

Now what we do have to point out is that this App doesn't actually fix the root cause of the purple haze problem but instead it tries to make your pictures look as those they haven't been affected by the haze. This does mean that the coloring of your pictures can sometimes be quite a bit off, but I suppose you could say, that it does what it says it will do.

Apple has pointed out that the issue is for the most part unavoidable and most people will just have to live with it. They have said that users should try not to take shots into or angled towards bright light. It is the light that reflects off your iPhone's camera modules and causes this dusty layer. You will need to practice a little bit of trial and error to see what the best position for taking your photos is.

Still, to sum up, what we can say is that Camera Fix does a reasonable job and is available at just $0.99 from the App Store if the purple haze is getting too much for you to bare.

Untethered Jailbreak iOS 6 and iPhone 5 Update

12/03/2012 12:46:00 PM - 0 comments

Everyone is still waiting anxiously for the release of an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5/4S iPad mini and iPad 4. Today we decided to give you a progress overview so that you know exactly what is happening and who is working on what. The estimated arrival time of this long overdue jailbreak is still unknown but hopefully we will have some great news and possibly a public release before Christmas.

As you know, everyone in the jailbreak development community is hard at work on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5. iPhone Dev Team member @planetbeing is working hard and he tweeted a photo of his progress about 3 weeks ago, but since then he has been very quiet on Twitter.

@pod2g spoke about his work with the jailbreak for iOS 6 at the panel conversation in Malaysia. He and @planetbeing have actually split the work between them. @pod2g is working on a userland exploit and @planetbeing is working on kernel exploits. We are still waiting on an update from both.

@p0sininja has been working on getting the encryption codes for iBoot, which could ultimately be the key to dumping the BootROM. A bootROM dump hasn't been achieved for some years now but if it is, it would make untethered jailbreaks for future devices and iOS updates much easier to obtain. The time frame for a release is very vague but @p0sixninja does have other people working with him on fuzzing for bugs and crashes.

You are probably aware that numerous teams and videos of jailbreaks on iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and other non-jailbroken devices have popped up on the internet over the past couple of weeks but most of these have turned out to be fake. There are also websites that report to have jailbreak solutions for the iPhone 5 but we warn everyone to be wary of these. These fake websites are cashing in on those who are growing impatient waiting for the iPhone 5 jailbreak.

A jailbreak solution for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 is being worked on and as soon as something concrete has been achieved we will let you know. Until then, we will continue to update everyone on the progress that is being made and if you are following any of the dev team on Twitter just keep an eye on their updates and these are the people that can be trusted.
