Last month, the Dev Team released a new version of RedSn0w that allowed iPhone 3G (and some 3GS) users to downgrade their basebands. This was a big deal for users who had been stuck on the problematic 06.15 bb.
Today, the Dev Team has pushed out an update to the jailbreak utility that greatly improves on this feature. The downgrading process has been made simpler, and now works on a much wider range of devices. Read More

Weighing in on a recent resurgence of the old iPad mini rumor, this time corroborated by credible news outlets such as Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal, Apple pundit John Gruber opined that Apple could use existing manufacturing processes to quickly – and more importantly, cheaply – churn out millions and millions of seven-inch display panels for the iPad mini… Read More

Last week a tethered jailbreak was released for iOS 6 running on the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4th generation. While it was great to have a jailbreak so soon, the jailbreak didn’t include any GUI tools like Cydia, only SSH and afc2 support were added.
Fortunately, now that we have SSH access, we can transfer and install pretty much anything on our jailbroken iOS 6 devices, including Cydia.
Check inside for the full video tutorial that shows you how to install Cydia on iOS 6 beta… Read More

Earlier today, the iPhone Dev Team released RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1 to jailbreak the iOS 6 beta on certain iOS devices. Because this jailbreak is obviously aimed at developers only, the process and the results are a tad bit different that normal.
If you’re a developer, and you have an iPhone 4, 3GS, or iPod touch 4th generation running iOS 6 beta, then step inside as we showcase how to jailbreak with this development version of RedSn0w. Read More

Last year, the Dev Team announced that iPhone 3G/3GS owners unlocked on baseband 06.15.00 would likely be stuck there forever, leaving them to deal with GPS bugs and other issues.
But that may not be the case, as it appears that hackers have been working on a fix. Unlocking expert MuscleNerd has just announced that a baseband downgrade is on the horizon… Read More

If you currently have an A4 device or below that’s jailbroken on iOS 5.1.1 using a tethered jailbreak, you can use the new Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether package to convert your tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak.
This is great, because you don’t have to perform any sort of restore on your already jailbroken device just to change it into a jailbreak of the untethered variety. Even better is the fact that you can download Rocky Racoon from Cydia, and install it just like you would any other package to accomplish an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1.
Inside, we detail the brief steps involved to convert your existing jailbroken device running iOS 5.1.1 into an untethered jailbreak. Join us… Read More

The upcoming iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak release is imminent. It’s so close we can almost smell it.
For that reason, it would be wise to go ahead and analyse your current situation, and prepare for the jailbreak.
It has been confirmed that the A5 portion of the jailbreak — the jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and the iPad 3 — will only support iOS 5.1.1.
While nothing has been said about A4 devices, it’s a good chance that iOS 5.1.1 will be required to jailbreak any device with the new Absinthe tool across the board.
So what should you do? Should you update your device now, or wait until the jailbreak has been officially released? Read More

Instead of killing off the iPhone 3GS when a sixth-generation model arrives later this year, Apple is allegedly in the process of repricing the handset in order to better attend to its customers in emerging markets, where phones are often sold contract-free and used with pay-as-you-go plans.
According to Jefferies analys Peter Misek, Apple wants to sell its three-year old handset contract-free in developing markets for between $250 and $300 versus its current $375 no-contract asking price… Read More

Great news for those of you who own 3rd generation iPods and/or the iPhone 3GS — both devices have gained support for pod2g’s upcoming untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1.
The reason these devices were initially excluded was because the kernel vulnerability used to accomplish the jailbreak on other devices didn’t appear to work on the iPod 3G and the iPhone 3GS.
Although the hacker hasn’t provided more details on how he was eventually able to verify that the jailbreak will be possible, he says he will update us with more details later.
Check inside for the updated list of devices that will be compatible for the 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak… Read More
