The DevTeam releases PwnageTool 3.1 to run the Firmware 3.1 Jailbreak



pwnage 20

DevTeam released PwnageTool 3.1. This utility will allow users of iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch to run jailbreaked firmware 3.1. We still recommend staying on firmware 3.0/3.0.1 for as long as possible. The 3.1 firmware is not worth it. But if you really want 3.1. Here are the details:

  1. If you are using a 3G iPhone with ultrasn0w and rely on ultrasn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should only upgrade to 3.1 with a PwnageTool created .ipsw. Never update using Apple's unmodified firmware. Stay away from Apple’s direct updates.
  2. This version of PwnageTool WILL NOT work for the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 2G/3G.
  3. PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch (1st Generation) and the iPhone 3G.
  4. It works only with Mac OS X.
  5. Future releases of PwnageTool and RedSn0w will be soon with more functionality.

Here is per device info:

iPhone 3G (unlocked): This model of iPhone 3G doesn’t have an Service Provider lock (aka factory unlocked) and you are able to put any SIM card into the phone and get service. Your phone is already unlocked so you do not need to worry about baseband updates, simply upgrade to 3.1 using iTunes and then use PwnageTool to create an ipsw and then use this to jailbreak your phone.

iPhone 3G (locked): You need to preserve 3.0 baseband. Create a custom firmware.

iPhone 2G (1st Generation): Use PwnageTool to do the magic and then restore with iTunes using your newly created .ipsw, you don’t need to worry about anything, the baseband will be unlocked, the phone jailbroken.

iPod touch 1G (Original iPod Touch): Use PwnageTool to create a firmware image and restore with that .ipsw using iTunes.

iPod touch 2G: Sorry, no support at this time within PwnageTool, use Redsn0w for an earlier (pre 3.1) firmware release instead.

iPod touch 3G (New iPod Touch): Sorry, no support at this time within PwnageTool.

You can download PwnageTool 3.1 in our utilities page.

AT&T Announces iPhone MMS Launch Date: September 25



att-mms-press

AT&T has issued a press release today announcing that MMS will become active for iPhone users on September 25.

We've been working for the past several months to prepare our systems and network to ensure the best possible experience with MMS when it launches - and that launch date is: September 25 for iPhone 3G and 3GS customers. MMS will be enabled through a software update on that day.

AT&T points to the need for the company to build out its network infrastructure to handle the demands of heavy MMS messaging volumes as the primary reason for the delay in launching the service compared to carriers in other countries that have offered MMS since the launch of iPhone OS 3.0 in June.

As announced in June, MMS messaging will be included at no additional cost to users with an iPhone text messaging plan.

Nokia N900: The Revenge of Nokia's iPhone? [Video]



Recentrly we've talked about Nokia and their willingness to enter into direct competition with the iPhone releasing new devices based on Linux. Now on the official Nokia website we can already pre-order the new mini tablet N900.

nokia-n900

The operating system is the Maemo 5, that is based on Linux. It has an ARM Cortex A8 processor with 256MB of RAM for applications and other 768MB in virtual memory, so total is 1GB. So the multi-tasking is guaranteed. The graphics uses Open GL | ES 2.0, which is quite good.

The new operating system is much more flexible compared to Symbian. The Web browser is developed by Mozilla and is capable of playing Flash 9.4 movies and animations.

It looks like an iPhone but lacks the Home. It also has a sliding QWERTY keyboard. The screen resolution is 800 × 480 pixels (16:9). There are two cameras. The main has 5 MP with Carl Zeiss optics, Tessar lens and two LEDs for flash. The onboard memory is 32GB but can be expanded with microSD to additional 48GB.

The target price (tax excluded) is 500 euro. Nokia N900 will be available starting from October.

Here's a video that shows the Maemo interface in action:

Nokia N97 vs iPhone 3GS Photos Comparison



Here are couple photos taken with Nokia N97 and iPhone 3GS:

iphone3gs-7 NokiaN97-7

The Nokia N97 takes 5MP photos while the iPhone 3GS takes 3MP photos. All the photos in this post are resized, click to enlarge.

iPhone 3GS photos are the left ones, Nokia N97 - right ones.

As for geotagging it was turned on for both devices. The iPhone 3GS successfully geotagged all 8 photos while the Nokia N97 was only able to geotag 2 of the 8 photos. The SIM card was in the Nokia N97, while the iPhone was in offline mode. A possible explanantion is that the GPS signal on the Nokia N97 is weak as discussed on Nokia’s forums.

Take a look at more photos:

Octopus Cable Charges 10 Devices for Just 10 Dollars



super_usb_cellphone_charger

The $10 Octopus USB Cable has 10 different tentacles (ignore the fact that octopi usually have eight) to charge pretty much any mobile device you could own—most probably at a rate of 1 at a time. Specifically, that mix includes:

- Nokia 2.06mm (or 2mm)
- Nokia 3.5mm
- Sony PSP
- Motorola (V3 series) & HTC and other phones using USB Mini 5 pin as a charging port
- Micro USB (for Motorola V8...)
- LG
- Samsung (20P (s))
- Samsung (20P (M))
- Sony Ericsson Fast Port
- iPhone / iPod (for charging and Data)

Now why you'd ever be carrying around all of these devices at once, we cannot explain.
