The MediaSpeak tweak which has just landed on the Cydia store could be something you have been looking for. If you are a regular iOS device music listener, then this little package could add a little bit of extra depth to your listening experience, as well as actually providing a very good little audible service to users. MediaSpeak is essentially a very lightweight installation that hooks into the Music app on your jailbroken device and listens to when a new song begins playing back.
AppFront is a new app for jailbroken devices that integrates Skype, Viber, and WhatsApp.
Love WhatsApp and Viber but hate that you don’t know which friend is using which app? The easiest way to use Viber, WhatsApp and Skype on the iPhone. Instead of using 3 programs, use the standard phone app to quickly make calls or send texts.
iH8sn0w has released Sn0wbreeze 2.2 for Windows, which allows users who want to jailbreak and also unlock their iPhone to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.2.1 firmware while preserving the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.
Sn0wbreeze is considered as the unofficial PwnageTool for Windows. iPhone Dev Team have already released PwnageTool 4.2 for Mac.
iPhone Dev team have just released PwnageTool 4.2 for iOS 4.2.1 that incorporates the untether exploit used by Chronic Dev Team in greenpois0n that was released few days back.
PwnageTool 4.2 will allow iPhone users to safely restore to a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.2.1 firmware and retain their current baseband so that they can use Ultrasn0w to unlock their GSM iPhone. PwnageTool 4.2 also includes fixes for iBooks issue that we had reported earlier and Wi-Fi problem on Apple TV 2G.
Dev Team has provided the following details in a blog post:
Folks at RedmondPie have made a pretty interesting discovery. They are speculating that the next version of jailbreak software from George Hotz, more popularly known as GeoHot, could be named Rubyra1n. GeoHot has released easy to use tools to jailbreak and unlock iPhone like blackra1n, limera1n and blacksn0w that have been very popular.
This revelation comes from the WhoIs records for the domain name Rubyra1n.com that shows George Hotz as the registered owner.
iPhone Dev Team had released Redsn0w 0.9.7b1 that implements the “backup plan” for iOS 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch 4G.
It was meant only for beta testers and not for the general public as there are still some known issues that need to be addressed. However, users who tried the beta version reported a number of issues. Dev Team has promptly released a new version of Redsn0w to address some of the issues.
Chronic Dev Team has just released greenpois0n to jailbreak iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iOS 3.2.2 for iPad.
Chronic Dev team had to delay the release of greenpois0n after Geohot released limera1n as they decided to incorporate the same USB bootrom exploit used in limera1n instead of using the SHAtter exploit so that it can be used sometime in the future. greenpois0n works only on iOS 4.1 and iOS 3.2.2 for iPad. iPhone 4 users can use Tiny Umbrella if they want to upgrade to iOS 4.1 to preserve the baseband so that they can unlock it using Ultrasn0w after jailbreaking their iPhone.
iPhone Dev Team have announced that they have managed to successfully jailbreak iOS 4.1 on the new iPod Touch 4G using the SHAtter exploit.
SHAtter is the new bootrom exploit discovered by pod2g of the Chronic Dev Team that allows the use of unsigned code execution. It is being used by the iPhone hacking community to create tools to jailbreak existing iDevices for life. iPhone Dev team have managed to use the SHAtter exploit in the beta version of PwnageTool to jailbreak iPod Touch 4G.
Vincent has just tweeted that the SHAtter exploit based jailbreak for iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4 / iPod touch 4 and iPad will be released soon. Why would we do an entire post after a simple tweet? Well, that’s because good ol’ Vincent here is the administrator of The iPhone Wiki (an encyclopedia which collects, stores and provides info on iPhone hacks), so the source is authentic and extremely reliable.
They won’t wait for iOS 4.2 to release SHAtter. iOS 4.1 will be jailbroken soon.
This tweet was a prediction based on indications from @pod2g and others.
So there you go! Chronic Dev-Team hackers will not wait for iOS 4.2 to release GreenPois0n. So that’s further evidence that GreenPois0n is right around the corner. Be patient, folks! Stay away from fake tools and avoid asking devs for updates as you’ll only slow down their progress.
There is no exact Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) yet, but we will inform of the good news as soon as we have it.
