Nov 102010
 

Reports are coming in that suggest that Apple may have stopped the sale of slider cases for the iPhone 4 from its retail stores. Apparently, even cases that are marked with the “Made For iPhone” tag (MFI) are currently being pulled.

This follows our report from last month where we had reported that Apple was investigating possible issue with slider cases that could be responsible for causing scratches or even cracks on the rear glass pane of iPhone 4. According to folks at Cult of Mac, Apple engineers are presently working from a secret facility to validate these claims. If proven true, it is likely that Apple would permanently ban the sale of these slider cases from their stores. It may be worth noting that slide-on cases for older iPhone models like iPhone 3GS continue to be sold at Apple Stores across the country. Continue reading »

iPhone Dev Team has released PwnageTool 4.1.2 to allow iPhone users to create and update their iPhone with a custom pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1.

This guide will provide iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G users with step-by-step instructions to update and jailbreak their iPhone with iOS 4.1.

Some important points before we proceed:

Please note that jailbreaking your iPhone may void its warranty so proceed with caution.
Don’t forget to backup your iPhone before you proceed. You can refer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iPhone.
Please ensure that your iPhone has enough charge.
This guide is only for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G users.
PwnageTool is only supported on Mac OS X and is not supported on Microsoft Windows. Windows users should wait for Sn0wbreeze that is expected to be released shortly.
Users who want to unlock their iPhone:
PwnageTool does not unlock your iPhone.
You can use Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone after you have successfully updated and jailbroken your iPhone with iOS 4.1.
But there is a catch. Ultrasn0w 1.1-1 can only unlock the following basebands (you can check the baseband by going to Settings –> General –> About –> Modem Firmware):
iPhone 4 baseband – 01.59.00
iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS basebands – 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04
So if your iPhone is currently on iOS 4.0.2 or lower then PwnageTool 4.1.x will allow you to create a custom pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1 and preserve the baseband so that you can unlock your iPhone using Ultrasn0w 1.1-1.
If you accidentally upgraded your iPhone 4 with iOS 4.1 then its baseband would have got upgraded to 02.10.04. Unfortunately, 02.10.04 baseband shipped with iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4 cannot be unlocked nor can it be downgraded.
Similarly, if you accidentally upgraded your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS with iOS 4.1 then its baseband would have got upgraded to 05.14.02. Unfortunately, 05.14.02 baseband shipped with iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G cannot be unlocked nor can it be downgraded.
Please read the instructions carefully especially the ones highlighted in bold.
If you meet the requirements mentioned above then you can proceed with the step-by-step instructions to jailbreak your iPhone using PwnageTool. Continue reading »

Next-Gen iPod Touch And iPad Will Get FaceTime

Jul 212010
 

Over the past few days, we have been hearing rumors that suggest that the next generation of iPod Touch and iPad could come with a front facing camera that would enable FaceTime to work on these devices.

Now folks at Boy Genius Report have unearthed more information on how this could actually work out.

As you may be aware, Apple’s FaceTime video-calling feature references every user by their phone number. This is tricky since users of iPod Touch and iPad do not have a phone number referenced to their device. BGR sources have revealed that Apple may alternatively make use of the users’ Apple ID to reference the devices. Consequently, a FaceTime conversation with these users may be initiated by “calling” their email address. Here are screen-grabs of the FaceTime account registration and settings page on the next generation iPod Touch. Continue reading »
