Sn0wBreeze Gets Major Update for Two-Year Anniversary

Following up releases from both the Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team, iH8sn0w has seeded a new version of his popular jailbreak tool, Sn0wBreeze, to include pod2g’s iOS 5.0.1 untether. But he didn’t stop there.

In light of Sn0wBreeze’s two-year anniversary, iH8sn0w has incorporated a number of new features into the utility. Among those is support for older firmware (all the way back to iOS 3.1.3) and an IPSW downloader…

iFaith SHSH Tool Receives Major Update

Infamous iOS hacker and Sn0wBreeze creator iH8sn0w just released a major update for his iFaith application. Like TinyUmbrella, iFaith allows you to save your device’s SHSH blobs, which are needed to preserve your ability to downgrade firmware in the future.

The update supports iOS versions up to 5.0.1, but isn’t yet compatible with A5 iDevices. There also doesn’t seem to be a Mac version available. But if you own an A4 device and have access to a Windows computer, we highly recommend you download the new iFaith…

Sn0wBreeze Gets Updated With iOS 5.0.1 Support

Yesterday afternoon, after a week of testing, Apple finally seeded iOS 5.0.1 to the public. The update brings fixes for Siri, the Smart Cover security flaw, and the highly-publicized battery issue.

As you may recall, we’ve recommended that jailbreakers stay away from updating. It could ruin your chances of a proper iOS 5 jailbreak. But for those of you who couldn’t wait, Sn0wBreeze was just updated to support the new software with a tethered jailbreak…

Sn0wBreeze Gets Updated for iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2

With the release of iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 earlier today, iOS hacker iH8Sn0w has updated his Sn0wBreeze jailbreak tool to version v2.8b10 making it compatible with the latest beta firmware version…

iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 Will Expire on December 14

Hot on the heels of the release of iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 to developers, iOS hacker extraordinaire iH8Sn0w just gave us the heads up on the expiration date of the beta firmware.

According to iH8Sn0w, iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 will expire on December 14th, at 8pm EST. Concretely, this means that you will have to update your firmware before that time, or your device will be completely useless until you restore…

iOS 5.0.1 Beta Will Expire on December 14th

A couple hours ago, we reported that Apple was acknowledging problems with battery usage in iOS 5, leading the company to release iOS 5.0.1 beta to developers.

If you are a developer who downloaded and installed the new beta release, you must know that this beta version will eventually expire, rendering your device useless if you haven’t updated to a newer firmware version…

Video Shows iBooks Running on Jailbroken iOS 5

As is always the case when a new release of iOS comes out, jailbreaking can cause a few weird and wonderful things to happen with certain apps.

One such oddity is the way jailbroken iOS 5 devices seem unable to run Apple’s iBooks app, with tapping the icon resulting in an immediate crash.

With the new Steve Jobs biography going on sale, not having a working release of iBooks could be a potential deal breaker for many jailbreakers out there, but as this video shows, there may be light at the end of the tunnel…

Siri Isn’t Technically Limited to the iPhone 4S

Why Apple has limited its new Siri personal assistant feature to the iPhone 4S is anyone’s guess. At first it was believed that a lot of the backend of Siri took place on the handset, so it needed the A5’s extra power. But that didn’t prove to be the case.

It was also thought that the service required 1GB of RAM. But it was later revealed that Apple’s new smartphone only contains 512MB, so that can’t be it, either. So then why in the world is Siri limited to the iPhone 4S? Well, maybe it’s not…

Porting Siri to the iPhone 4 Will Require Piracy

Last week we broke the news that jailbreak hacker iH8sn0w was actively working on bringing Siri to iDevices like the 4G iPod touch and iPhone 4. This got a lot of people excited at the possibility of getting access to Siri’s artificial intelligence without having to upgrade to the iPhone 4S.

This morning, the Dev Team’s MuscleNerd sent out a tweet saying that porting Siri to the iPhone 4 or any other iDevice would most likely require piracy, something that the Dev Team has always refused to do…

Jailbreak iOS 5 GM on Windows with Sn0wBreeze

Jailbreak Hackers Already Working on Porting Siri to the 4G iPod Touch [Updated]

Chances are you probably heard about Siri coming with the iPhone 4S. Many current iPhone 4 users were bummed when Apple announced that it would be a iPhone 4S-only feature.

The jailbreak community is already working on porting Apple’s revolutionary Siri technology to the 4G iPod touch. Thanks to iH8sn0w and Gojohnnyboi, hackers have somewhat ported Siri to the previous generation iPod touch already…
