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.
But… I don’t own a 4S nor I an iPad 2.
Verizon is reportedly working on introducing shared data plans by 2012, reports Fierce Wireless.
Verizon Communications CEO Lowell McAdam spoke at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference and said that customers who are dealing with four or five screens–smartphones, tablets and USB modems for laptops and the like–do not want to pay for all of those devices on separate bills, and neither does Verizon.
“I think in 2012 we will see it,” McAdam said. “We have been working on this for a couple of years. Getting to one bill and getting to account-level pricing is our goal.”
For instance, you can dump the SHSH of the current firmware on your device, so long as the device is susceptible to the Limera1n jailbreak (Everything but the iPad 2) Apple does not have to be signing the SHSH in order for you to dump the blob.
*Note the iPod Touch 2G and iPhone 3G will not work since they will always be jailbreakable. The iPad 2 will not work because it is not susceptible to Limera1n. A jailbreak is not needed for this.
Ever since Apple introduced an API in iOS to detect jailbroken iOS devices, developers have been using it to prevent users who have jailbroken their iOS devices from using their apps. They’re typically greeted with the following error message: “Jailbreak detected. App cannot run on a jailbroken device” when they launch such apps.
We’ve seen the jailbreak detection in apps such as Bloomberg Anywhere, Cablevision, Cisco M-Learning, DirecTV for iPad, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Time Warner Cable, Verizon On Demand /FlexView etc.
FaceTime was introduced by Apple in 2010 and has gained popularity since. With more products such as Macs, iPad 2 and iPod touch being supported, the video-call software has become more flexible.
An analyst who specializes in all things Apple is certain that Apple branded Television sets are coming next year. He listed all of the details he thinks it’ll have, and is so sure that he urged people to not buy the current set-top box (2nd generation Apple TV).
Business Insider sat down with analyst Gene Munster during their IGNITION conference. Munster strongly believes that an Apple-branded TV set is coming, and he listed all of the features it’ll have.
It’ll be a “full-fledged TV set” not a set-top box like the current Apple TV, mostly because Apple thinks people hate plugging in external gadgets.
