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 →
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 →
Saving voicemails is important. For various reasons, from legal issues to saving a loved one’s voice, people sometimes need to save voicemails. And they should be able to, right? Well, almost every U.S. cell phone provider deletes voicemails after a certain period of time – from 14 to 30 days. They’re your voicemails, so why are you letting your carrier determine which to delete?
On top of that, iPhone users don’t even have an option to save or forward voicemails despite how “smart” it is. So I’ve created this guide on how to save your iPhone voicemails permanently. It’ll take you five simple steps to complete, and it doesn’t even require jailbreaking your device. 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.

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 →
Apple had a number of announcements during its education event yesterday. They announced an update to iBooks with new interactive books, a brand new authoring tool called iBooks Author, and a new iTunes U app for iOS devices. But we’re not here to talk about what Apple announced at their event today or the other things that everyone seems to be talking about. Instead, we’re going to take a trip back in time to the mid-1980′s when Steve Jobs left Apple and was just 90 days into his next big company called NeXT. Continue reading →
Packed inside the upcoming iOS 5.1 are 4 new wallpapers specifically designed for the iPad. The fine folks over at 9to5 Mac discovered these new wallpapers inside a copy of iOS 5.1 beta.

Although these wallpapers have a 1024×1024 resolution (for both iPad landscape and portrait modes), 9to5 Mac has also sized them down to retina resolutions for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Continue reading →
