iTunes 8.2 released



itunes

Apple released iTunes 8.2. You can download it here.

This update breaks your ability to use QuickPwn, PwnageTool, and iPhone Tunneling Suite (ssh over usb). Many file managers do not work with iTunes 8.2 installed. We don’t think this is a deliberate breakage of these tools.  It’s just that Apple has updated a low-level USB protocol. It may also break Palm Pre’s connection to the device.

So if you jailbreak, we recommend you not to update.

What Will Apple’s Next Generation iPhone 2,1 be Called?



iphone_2-1_named_what

New iPhone is widely expected to be announced at WWDC 2009. But what name will Apple give to this new device?

  • iPhone 4G would assume 4G LTE wireless networks, which haven’t even begun to be rolled out yet, so last year’s scheme is out.
  • iPhone 3.5/3.9G is likewise a non-starter. HSPA+ is not for Apple.
  • iPhone 32GB is spoken all over internet. This name is more about memory, than a phone. It forces Apple to do actually 32GB models, etc. This too seems unlikely.
  • iPhone Pro fits with Mac Pro and MacBook Pro (and even Final Cut Pro). This name is cool, but kind of already used and abused by Palm Treo Pro, HTC Touch Pro, and a variety of other stylus-wielding Windows Phones.
  • iPhone, sans descriptor is always a possibility. After all, it’s not iMac X, Y, or Z, it’s just iMac. Whether internal documents say iPhone 2,1 or iPhone 3rd Generation, Apple could be ballsy enough at this point to just stick with the unadorned moniker.
  • iPhone HD - high resolution screen, full HD support, 10Mp camera.. all this is just our dreams. Why not?

Any thoughts on names? Just leave comments.

The future iPhone will run on ARMv7 processor?



There are new job announcements by Apple and in particular Apple seeks for experts in architecture with ARM NEON technology. As you can see in the image, the aim is to improve the iPhone OS subsystem that will lead to a better graphics acceleration, especially in multimedia applications.

The NEON technology is currently implemented only on the new processors ARMv7. The current iPhone uses ARMv6. This leads us to think that the next model of iPhone will have a new processor. But this will probably be next year..

Next Generation iPhone Rumors



the_new_iphone_by_crazyem

AppleiPhoneApps said they had received important messages from internal sources at Apple, for the next model of iPhone. Here’s a whole list of characteristics:

Prize and Models:

  • There will be two models of the iPhone: a 16 GB and another from 32GB. The 8gb model to be no longer marketed.
  • Prices remain the same as the 3G iPhone

Hardware & Design:

  • There will be a 3.2 MegaPixel camera
  • The screen is OLED-type (but not flexible)
  • Given the characteristics of these types of display, the battery will last longer
  • RAM and Process Power will double
  • FM receiver
  • The Apple logo will light up
  • Will add the magnetometer

They also said that the released date will be july 17 2009. I honestly do not think this are news. I think this is only a collection of all the rumors that have arrived in recent days. Obviously take the news as a rumor because it might be true as false.

YXFlash: player for Xvid, DivX, Flash and more



yxflashicon

YXFlash is a new application that is available in Cydia and includes the codecs to display Xvid / DivX video files . We will not longer need to convert movies into a format supported by Apple. The converted videos do play a bit smoother due to hardware acceleration, but xvid videos are watchable, at least the ones I tested. The player also plays flash content if you have downloaded flash flv videos to your device. It is not a web based flash player, this does not play flash videos embedded on websites. In order to add the videos just upload them using iFunBox or iPhone Browser.

Here is the complete list of formats supported by the complete version:

  • Flash Video -> .flv
  • Mpeg4, H.264
  • Windows Media Video (.wmv)
  • Xvid/DivX (.avi)
  • MP4, MP3, AAC and Windows Media Audio

The free version offers support only for MP3 and DivX. You can download the application via Cydia in the BigBoss repository. The full version costs around $10.
