Apple has released iOS 4.3.1 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
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.
These are instructions on how to change or remove the animated boot logo installed by performing the Greenpois0n jailbreak.
Launch Cydia from your Springboard.
As expected, iPhone Dev team has just released a new version of Redsn0w (Redsn0w 0.9.7b1) that implements the “backup plan” for iOS 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak.
Redsn0w 0.9.7b1 can be used to (untethered) jailbreak iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch 4G on iOS 4.2.1. Please note that Redsn0w 0.9.7b1 is meant only for beta testers and not for the general public as there are still some known issues that need to be addressed.
Muscelnerd has re-confirmed that an untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak is on track to be released before Christmas as stated by Comex a couple of weeks ago.
Arriving today was the eagerly anticipated iOS 4.2.1 update, along with previously-paid Apple’s device tracking, locking, and wiping tool called Find My iPhone.
Find My iPhone is a tracking application by Apple, it runs on your iOS device and tracks the location of the device. If lost, you can login to MobileMe, see the location of the device, display a message on the device, play a sound, lock the device with a PIN and even completely wipe the data off the device.
Before now this was only available on the iPhone 4, iPod touch (fourth generation), and the iPad. Follow this easy guide to get it working on any iOS device running iOS 4.2.1. To do this you must have, or borrow a friends “2010 iOS device”, either an iPhone 4, iPod touch (fourth generation), or an iPad.
The first iPod Nano watch, designed for Apple’s new watch-sized iPod Nano, was basically just a nylon strap. Pretty unimaginative. These new funky-color silicone bands from Hex actually make Apple’s diminutive iPod look like a not-entirely-ridiculous timepiece.
The $24.95 Hex band has a pop-in design which incorporates the Nano into the watch (as opposed to just sticking it on a band, like the first one did). It has integrated control buttons and comes in 9 colors.
As we posted in our guide on how to jailbreak iOS 4.2 GM on iPhone 3GS; Cydia and a lot of jailbreaking apps are completely broken. Both Cydia and JB apps will, of course, eventually start working and if MuscleNerd’s tweet is anything to go by, hackers chpwn and saurik are burning the midnight oil to get it working as soon as possible.
