As you know, Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off tomorrow with a State of the Union-like keynote address. WWDC is the most important event for the Apple community as it gives a sneak peak at how the firm plans to woo app developers in the year.
The 26th summer event runs from June 8 through June 12 at San Francisco’s Moscone West, where CEO Tim Cook will share the stage Monday morning along with other company executives to deliver latest advances concerning iOS, OS X and Watch OS platforms.
iDownloadBlog, the biggest name in jailbreaking, doesn’t get invited to Apple events. Not to worry: we’ll be providing a remote live coverage of the two-hour long presentation and following up with related tidbits throughout the day so you don’t miss a thing.
Apple will be providing a live stream through the Apple Events webpage on its website, using the new familiar weblog-like layout.
Although the official live stream is limited to Mac, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV devices, you can enjoy it on other platforms, too. Without further ado, here’s a quick tutorial on what you’ll need to watch the keynote live on both Apple devices and non-Apple platforms like Windows, Linux and Android.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s finally here. After much anticipation, the hard working team of hackers that make up the evad3rs have released their iOS 6 untethered jailbreak tool to the public. The tool is called evasi0n, and it will let you jailbreak your iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches, on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Evasi0n is an untethered jailbreak, and it works on every iOS device capable of running iOS 6, with the exception of the Apple TVs. That means that you can now jailbreak the iPhone 5, the iPad mini, the iPad 4, the iPad 4, iPad 3, the iPhone 4S, and various other iOS devices with evasi0n. Check inside for more information along with the download link.
Sunday is not that far away. Depending on where you are in the world, it could be as little as a day away. With that in mind, it’s great to see status bar on evasi0n.com, which signifies the completeness of the upcoming jailbreak, continue to rise.
Earlier today we reported that the status had approached 75%, with the Linux version of evasi0n still being in the works. Now, the Linux version is completed, and private beta testing is proceeding full steam ahead…
Version 0.3 of the Absinthe iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak utility was released a moment ago by the Chronic Dev Team, and with it comes support for Linux.
If you’re already jailbroken with v0.2, there is no need to attempt to reapply the jailbreak with the latest version, because there’s nothing really new besides a few cosmetic changes and a fix for a rare bug that most won’t encounter.
A few days ago chpwn released Spire, a legal Siri port for the iPhone 4 and other devices. The release was met with much excitement, and likely just as much confusion. How does it work? Can it work with an existing Siri Proxy?
Getting Spire working on your non-iPhone 4S device may seem daunting, but it’s actually fairly straight forward, especially if you’ve successfully followed our Siri Proxy tutorial in the past. The Spire setup pretty much involves the same steps needed to get Siri Proxy working, with a few notable differences thrown in.
Check inside as I show you how to get Siri running on your iPhone 4 using Spire. This should also work for other devices, like the fourth-generation iPod touch…
A couple of days ago we showed you how to install the much talked about Siri Proxy Server. That’s the first step to being able to really do some marvelous things with Apple’s so-called personal assistant.
The next step is installing the plugins that take advantage of the Siri Proxy. These plugins range from enabling you to tweet on command, start your car, control your television, or query IMDB’s massive movie database.
In the following tutorial, we show you how easy it is to install Siri Proxy plugins, and we use the IMDB plugin as an example. If you already have Siri Proxy installed, you don’t want to miss this…
Earlier we told you about the update to TouchPad, a VNC remote control app for iOS devices. It’s a well known app in itself, but this latest update is sure to make a few people ecstatic.
Indeed, Edovia — the highly esteemed developers behind this and other great apps, like Screens — has updated TouchPad to allow Siri dictation between an iPhone 4S and a Mac, Windows, or even Linux machine if that suits your fancy.
Good news for fans of Tux the penguin: soon you’ll be able to run the Linux operating system on your iDevice. A team of jailbreak developers has managed to run the open source Linux OS on Apple’s A4-powered devices.
