There can be no denying that the favored jailbreak flavor of late 2011 and 2012 has to be the iOS 5 exclusive Notification Center and Siri digital assistant. The inclusion of the two new features in the public release of iOS 5 presented practically limitless opportunities for developers when it comes to extending their native limited abilities.

Through a stock iOS 5 installation, Notification Center gives users access to a dedicated screen which displays pushed notifications for active applications as well as interactive widgets which are all accessed through a pull down method from the status bar. The problem with a stock installation of iOS, is that Notification Center only comes with two available widgets which allow the display of location based weather as well a financial ticker.

Pod2g has successfully implemented an untethered jailbreak of iOS 5, as this video demonstrates.

In earlier November, pod2g announced that he had found a bug that would be able to untether iOS 5.

Hey jailbreaking friends, I’ve found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don’t expect a release soon, but I’m gonna work hard in it.

It appears that his work has paid off; however, the untethered jailbreak isn’t compatible with the iPhone 4S or iPad 2 just yet.

Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.

Japanese users make extensive use of emoticons in their text messages and web pages. The use of these emoticons, called Emoji, is so prevalent that a standardized set of emoji icons are built into all the wireless handsets – including the iPhone.

However, with iOS 5, Apple finally allows users outside Japan to also use the Emoji keyboard. You can enable the Emoji by following these simple steps: Continue reading »
