Over the next few months we will be rolling out more dedicated pages for some of the most useful tools our jailbreaking toolbelts. First up for bid is iFaith — the SHSH blob, custom firmware creating, downgrade tool for Windows users.
If you missed yesterday’s post about iFaith, you can find it here. Otherwise, step inside for a look at our dedicated page to iH8Sn0w’s iFaith…
Up until Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S last month, the internet was flooded with rumors about the new device. Some rumors turned out to be true, others (most of them) were just plain BS.
We reported on all of these rumors because we thought it was our duty to inform you so that you could make the decision on whether a particular rumor was well founded or not. But by the time Apple showed the iPhone 4S to the world, we were all burned out by the rumor mill. We iDB writers were tired of them all, so we decided not to publish rumors any more.
If you’re a regular reader, you have probably noticed that we haven’t published many rumors lately. We just published the one or two that came from trusted sources, like The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times. Everything else hasn’t made it on iDB.
But for every rumor we don’t publish, we receive a few emails tipping us about those exact stories. We always thought that, like us, you were tired of these rumors, but apparently not, which is why we’d like to get your opinion on the matter…
Apple’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” event is happening tomorrow. It’s been 14 months since the iPhone 4 launch, and we’ve all been itching to hear what Apple has planned next for its incredible smartphone.
The iDB team has given last minute predictions and thoughts about tomorrow’s event. Will there be an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or both? What about iOS 5’s top secret “Assistant” feature? Will Steve Jobs grace the stage for “One more thing?”
Check inside for our individual thoughts and predictions on all of these topics and more…
This is a proud moment for the iDB team. Our ultimate guide to jailbreaking has been added as a featured resource in the new Cydia “Upgrade and Jailbreaking Help” section.
We told you yesterday about some changes that saurik and team made in Cydia, including a new Featured section for noteworthy jailbreak tweaks and apps. A new help section aims to answer your questions about jailbreaking, and you’ll find iDB proudly displayed as a resource at your disposal.
Today is a big day for the iDB Team. After blogging for over 3 years under the www.iphonedownloadblog.com domain name, we have decided to make a strategic move and change our name to iDownloadBlog.com.
As you’ve probably noticed within the past few months, we’ve been widening up our focus from iPhone-related information to everything iOS. There are two reasons for that…
Today Google unveiled +1, the company’s new attempt to doing something in the social space. Similar to Facebook’s Like button, hitting Google’s +1 button is a way of saying “I like this post”, or “check out this article”. In short, clicking +1 will publicly give something your stamp of approval. It can then help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search.
We just implemented the +1 button on iDB and of course, we want you to use it. You will see the little +1 button on every page of the site, right next to the Twitter and Facebook buttons. Make sure to hit it as much as you want because anything you can do to help spread our iPhone wisdom is much appreciated.
Of course, you can still follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our RSS feed.
Everything is so much calmer now that the new jailbreak has been released. We’ve all upgraded and re-hacked our iDevices and, if you’re like me, you are still in rebuilding mode. Re-customizing your iDevice can be fun though. You can change almost anything you want, from the icons to the start up screen.
If you’ve been looking for a new start up animation to try out, give our iDB boot logo by Ryan Pushong a try. It’s located in the BigBoss Cydia repo, but there’s just one thing you need to check first…
In case you didn’t know, MyGreatFest is a new convention taking place later this year. MyGreatFest is not any normal gathering; it is the world’s first iDevice and jailbreak convention.
We’ve already given you several details about MyGreatFest. The first event will be held this September in London, U.K. The team behind MyGreatFest plans on holding more conferences in the U.S. after the first event takes off.
We here at iDB are proud to announce that we are an official sponsor of MyGreatFest, and we will be bringing you more coverage of the convention as the date approaches.
