Jailbreakers are an impatient bunch, so it’s perhaps no great surprise to anyone that the lack of a jailbreak for Apple’s iPad 2 is starting to make some fans of the dark side a little antsy. Hopefully though, help will be at hand sooner rather than later.
In an interview with our friends over at MyGreatFest, iPhone hacker Joshua ‘p0sixninja’ Hill mentioned that a working iPad 2 jailbreak could be released into the wild as soon as the next couple of weeks, writes CultOfMac.Continue reading »

Well now, this is interesting. We’ve been hearing a lot of chatter about Best Buy and the iPad 2, rumors that the company was sitting on a giant pile of tablets ahead of some great event. Well, now we have an interesting tip that says the company will tap into that stock-pile ahead of a big Sunday launch. According to the above image, stores will, in general, have a minimum of three slates each — which in many cases isn’t going to be enough. Good, then, that the company has a guide on how to “minimize customer disappoints.” BBY has earlier said that it is fulfilling reservations first, so if you’re still holding your ticket but not a tablet this might be a good time to give your local big box a ring.

3D is all the rage these days, whether that be displays or cameras, with Nintendo’s 3DS mobile gaming console one of the few to offer glasses-free 3D. Now thanks to research by Jeremie Francone and Laurence Nigay from the Laboratory of Informatics of Grenoble at the EHCI Research Group, Apple’s iPad 2 is getting in on the action.
0n1c has demonstrated a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1. Previously, i0n1c also demonstrated the same untether working on iOS 4.3. Below you can read his description of the video and his plans for release.
In the video you can see how I switch off the iPod, then restart it, show the version, show that it is tethered and has the multitasking gestures, i show that you can buy ringtones and then I show cydia and the ninja jump game from last time.
i0n1c has announced that he will likely release his untether for the iOS 4.3 jailbreak before next weekend.
Because of several changes in iOS 4.3 in comparison to iOS 4.2.1 the jailbreak is NOT READY yet. That is what the *ALPHA* means. I need some time to check what kernel patches are actually required to work 100%ly.
However I recommend the dev-team or chronic-dev to first release a *tethered* iOS 4.3 so that everyone can test if their nice feature actually work. I guess most people require Mobile Substrate to work and AFAIK it does not work due to ASLR. It would be a waste if Apple kills an untethered jailbreak before Mobile Substrate works.
Apple, Apps, ipad, ipad 2Comments Off on Time Warner Cable’s iPad app will be the first with live TV streaming
Tablet apps from cable, fiber and satellite TV providers are suddenly a dime a dozen but despite promises of live TV streaming from several companies, the AP reports Time Warner Cable is finally ready to launch the feature first. The company’s official blog also teased the app in recent days but so far, iTunes isn’t giving any positive results. When it launches, it should enable TV watching, but only when used at home on Time Warner’s internet — you’ll need the TV and internet services to access the 30 or so channels initially available. While we keep an eye out for the app to actually arrive, you can get an idea of what it will be like by checking out the demo video from last year, embedded after the break.Continue reading »
