Has your Battery Life Improved in iOS 4.3.3?

By Guest Author on May 9, 2011

Ever since Apple released iOS 4.3, many iPhone users have been reporting a noticeable decrease in battery life from iOS 4.2.1. While further releases tend to help battery life a little bit, users state that their iPhone battery life still doesn’t last as long as it did on iOS 4.2.1 and earlier.

Apple released iOS 4.3.3 earlier this week, and in addition to rectifying the infamous location tracking bug, the update was also supposed to bring battery life improvements. We conducted a similar poll a few days after the release of iOS 4.3.1, and the poll results still showed that iOS 4.3.1 battery life had not improved.  Read More


Cydia Now Showing iOS 4.3.3 SHSH Blobs

By Guest Author on May 9, 2011

I’ve seen countless complaints in the comments regarding saved SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella not showing up in Cydia. Well, I can finally expect to see those complaints put to a rest (at least until Apple rolls out another iOS update) as Cydia now shows all saved iOS SHSH blobs up to the latest iOS 4.3.3.

If you’ve launched Cydia today, you’ll notice that if you previously saved your SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.1, iOS 4.3.2, and iOS 4.3.3 they’ll now appear in the top banner on the Cydia homepage on your iDevice.  Read More


iOS 4.3.3 Coming in the Next Few Weeks?

By Alex Heath on Apr 27, 2011

It appears that iOS 4.3.3 could be dropping in the next few weeks. In Apple’s recent response to the iPhone’s location-tracking database, the company mentions that an update to iOS is coming, “sometime in the next few weeks.”

Due to a bug in the iPhone’s location database, Apple plans pushing an incremental update to iOS very soon. There’s no word on an official release date, but we should be seeing iOS 4.3.3 before the end of next month. Read More


Reminder: Save Your SHSH Blobs for iOS 4.3.2

By Guest Author on Apr 27, 2011

Earlier today, Apple released an FAQ to address the controversial location debacle. Apple acknowledged that there was a bug within iOS. When Location Services was turned off, the iPhone continued to updated WiFi and cell tower data from Apple’s crowd-sourced database.

To address this issue, Apple announced that it would be releasing a software update within the next few weeks, most likely iOS 4.3.3. In addition to rectifying the location-tracking issues on iOS devices, Apple might also patch @i0n1c’s untethered iOS 4.3.x jailbreak exploit, leaving you with a tethered jailbreak.  Read More

Closer Look at iPhone’s Location-Tracking Database

By Alex Heath on Apr 22, 2011

A couple days ago, we told you about a discovery made by two researchers concerning location data collection on the iPhone. Apparently, the iPhone logs your GPS coordinates for an unspecified amount of time and saves that data to a system-level consolidated.db file that is then synced over to iTunes upon backup.

This finding was demonstrated at the Where 2.0 conference by British programmers Pete Warden and Alasdair Allen. They claimed the discovery as their own, when in fact it has actually been a known issue in the security community since last year. Read More


How to Downgrade iPhone iOS 4.3.2

By Guest Author on Apr 20, 2011

With the release of iOS 4.3.2 this late last week, and the new iOS 4.3.2 redsn0w jailbreak still not completely stable, some of you might not want to wait any longer for a stable jailbreak, or maybe you’re having additional issues with the new OS. Whatever the reason might be, you can downgrade from your current iOS version to an earlier version using your SHSH blobs on file.

It is important you have your SHSH blobs on file for the iOS version you want to downgrade to. If you don’t have your SHSH blobs on file for the iOS you want to downgrade to, you will not be able to downgrade. You can check which SHSH blobs on file you’ve got by launching Cydia and looking at the top of the Cydia homepage where it lists all your saved SHSH blobs.  Read More

Yay, we got a jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2! Ok, but what’s up with the unlock? My guess is that the Dev Team is working on updating PwnageTool for 4.3.2 compatibility. When they release PwnageTool, most likely in the coming days, they will also update their UltraSn0w unlock.

By Alex Heath on Apr 18, 2011

Only moments ago we told you that i0n1c released his untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2. The download that i0n1c posted consisted of the jailbreak code, instead of an actual tool for end users.

i0n1c Releases iOS 4.3.2 Untethered Jailbreak [Not Really Usable As Is]

By Cody Lee on Apr 18, 2011

While most of you haven’t yet upgraded to iOS 4.3.2, there are a few folks out there that did by either accident or design. The minor update only contained fixes for FaceTime and Verizon iPad 2 connection problems.

However, for those that have updated, there are certainly signs that a jailbreak for the new firmware is close. We told you a few days ago that iDevice hacker i0n1c had confirmed via Twitter that the new iOS is vulnerable to his untether used in the 4.3.1 jailbreak. Now he has released the untether for 4.3.2 for anyone interested… Read More

Great news coming out of the Twitter-sphere today, as Stefan Esser, better known by his Twitter handle, @i0n1c, has confirmed that Apple has left his untether vulnerability in iOS 4.3.2.

That means that as our report speculated yesterday, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2 is possible, and will certainly be released sometime in the not-too-distant future.

According to Esser, his iPad 1 is already running iOS 4.3.2 with an untethered jailbreak.
