Apple released iOS 4.2 Beta 1 for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch



Apple has just released the official iOS 4.2 beta 1 builds for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. This is beta and is for developers only. The final version is planned for this November.

Here is a quick summary of some of the changes:

  • Wireless printing, so we can print docs from our iOS device.
  • AirPlay, which takes AirTunes to another level with streaming video and pictures, and should let us beam content from iPhone or iPod touch to the new Apple TV.
  • Find text on web page, finally. In Safari, easily search for and highlight specific words and phrases.
  • And finally iOS 4 features for the iPad (multitasking, folders, etc).

Here is a quick comment from Apple about iOS 4.2 for iPad:

iOS 4 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. And soon iPad owners will get to enjoy its 100+ new features and innovations — including multitasking, folders, printing, and more. Look for iOS 4.2 coming in November for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch

How to jailbreak iOS 4.0.2 iPhone 3G



You cannot use JailBreakMe method to jailbreak and unlock iOS 4.0.2 on iPhone 3G. However you can still jailbreak and unlock iPhone 3G using redsn0w. Here are the instructions:

  • Download the latest RedSn0w 0.9.5-b5 in our utilities page here.
  • Download firmware images for iOS 4.0 here.
  • Run RedSn0w and point it at the 4.0 IPSW. (Yes – point it at the 4.0 IPSW even though you're at 4.0.2). This will also hacktivate your iPhone3G at 4.0.1 if you haven't already been activated by iTunes.
  • If you need a carrier unlock - install ultrasn0w in Cydia (add repository http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com). For T-Mobile in the USA remember to turn off 3G mode in Settings→General→Network.

HDR photos in iOS 4.1 could be a result of Apple acquisition



imsense

The addition of high dynamic range photos to the iPhone 4 via the iOS 4.1 software update may have come from the purchase of Imsense Ltd., a company that creates software to improve the quality of digital photos.

The company developed technology it dubbed "eye-fidelity," which allows for dynamic range correction in both standard and HDR photos. This is accomplished by recovering details lost in underexposed and overexposed pictures. The resulting effect, in some cases, results in superior pictures when taken in daylight or a bright setting.

Cydia Has Acquired Rock Your iPhone



ipad

Cydia, the jailbreak App Store, is without a doubt the symbol of jailbreaking.  Rock, a second App Store, has had some success of its own over its 18 months of existence. Well, times have changed. Saurik, Cydia’s creator, has now acquired Rock and will merge it into Cydia. As a result, all apps, licenses and so on will be moved from Rock to Cydia over the next couple of days. This will bring the total number of available jailbreak apps, themes and extensions to over 20,000. As for Rock, it will be shut down.

iOS 4 “cloned” to HTC device



It looks like iOS 4.0 has successfully been cloned to another device, an HTC one in this case, and everything from iOS seems to be there. As iSpazio points out, the porting of iOS to another company’s device seems like a long-shot, so this is most likely the best, most realistic iOS clone ever. As you’ll see in the video, everything works including folders, quick-app switching, spotlight, and all the keyboards.
