Are you sick of the limited functionality of your new Apple TV? It kind of sucks that you can’t stream HD videos from your computer straight to your TV, right? If you’re nodding your head, jailbreaking your Apple TV is something you should consider. New apps like XBMC can release the limitations of your Apple TV by allowing you to stream HD video over your network. You can even add a fully functional web browser for surfing the web from your couch. On top of all that, the latest version of iOS for the Apple TV is able to be jailbroken without being tethered! Let’s get started. Continue reading →

It also allows everyone to update their devices to the latest version of iOS, which fixes security issues and bugs. Read on to learn how to jailbreak your iOS device running iOS 5.1.1!

The Jailbreak Dream Team has officially release its latest jailbreak tool, Absinthe 2.0. The group, which consists of members from both the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team, release the tool just minutes before their 2 hour speech ended at the Hack In The Box Security Conference in Amsterdam. Certainly this is most popular and highly anticipated jailbreak – the team even released a press release for the jailbreak, which was never done in the past. Continue reading →
Typing on the iPad has never been something I was particularly fond of. Having to go back and forth between the keyboard and the text you’re writing is nowhere near as fast or efficient as using a physical keyboard and shortcuts. But the other day I saw a concept video that showed how text editing on the iPad could be much better. Just swipe to the left or right on the iPad keyboard to move the cursor left or right. No more back-and-forth between the keyboard and text. Genius! That was just 3 days ago, and it seems a jailbreak developer has already been working on bringing it to Cydia. Continue reading →
Ask any jailbreaker why they jailbreak their iPhone, and SBSettings will most likely fall somewhere in their answer. In short, SBSettings allows you to quickly change settings, such as adjusting brightness and toggling WiFi, from anywhere on your iPhone. In fact, it’s such a helpful jailbreak tweak, you may recall we’ve written about it quite a few times.
As iOS progresses, SBSettings seems to be showing its age. Back in the days of iOS 3 and 4, it was the quickest way to change settings, but now that iOS 5 brought us Notification Center, it seems a bit redundant to have two “menus” pull down from the top. Why not just make it easier and combine setting toggles with Notification Center into one menu? That’s exactly what a new tweak called NCSettings aims to do. Continue reading →
Privacy is a huge concern for almost every iPhone user. We’ve seen controversies in the past dealing with users’ location data being recorded and even contact data being accessed without permission. So for most iPhone users it’s a no-brainer to set up a 4 digit passcode to keep thieves from gaining access to your phone.
But what if you’re in a trusted area like your home or office? Should you still be required to enter your passcode even though theft is unlikely? Of course, that’s up to you, but if you’re sick of entering your passcode in the confines of your home, a jailbreak tweak called CleverPin attempts to remedy that inconvenience. Continue reading →
The combined efforts of the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team proved to be victorious last week when a new jailbreak tool called GreenPois0n Absinthe was released to public. This new tool was significant to the jailbreak community because it allowed users to jailbreak their A5 devices (iPhone 4S and iPad 2) after several months of waiting. Now that the wait is over, here’s our 5-step guide to jailbreaking your A5 iDevices with GreenPois0n Absinthe. Continue reading →
It’s official: the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 have finally been jailbroken. Late last night, MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev Team tweeted that the A5 jailbreak was on the verge of being ready for public release. The jailbreak “dream team” just had to work out a few kinks in the actual jailbreak software and they’d release it shortly after. Well now that time has come. Continue reading →
Earlier today we saw that both the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released their respective tools to jailbreak an untethered version iOS 5.0.1. Some of you may have already jailbroke iOS 5.0.1 using an earlier version of the iPhone Dev Team’s redsn0w. Unfortunately that specific exploit left you with a tethered (meaning devices required connecting to a computer to boot) version of iOS 5.0.1. But all that is a thing of the past, and users can now jailbreak their A4 iDevices using redsn0w and Corona. Continue reading →
