Step-by-step Tutorial: How to Tether Jailbreak iPhone 4 Using RedSn0w 0.9.10 (Windows) [iOS 5.1]





iphone-4-windows-51

UPDATE: Apple released iOS 5.1.1 and has stopped signing iOS 5.1, so you can NOT restore to 5.1 any more (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys for 5.0.1. If you are on 5.1 you can jailbreak with redsn0w. iOS is also tethered jailbreakable with redsn0w.

This is step-by-step instructions on how to perform tethered jailbreak of your iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1 firmware using RedSn0w 0.9.10 for Windows.

Tethered jailbreak means that each time you restart your device you will need to connect it to a computer and run redsn0w.

iH8sn0w have found a way to downgrade iPhone 4S and iPad 2 to iOS 5.0.1



downgrade-to-501

iH8sn0w, developer of sn0wbreeze and iFaith, has found a way to downgrade the firmware on A5 devices - iPhone 4S, iPad 2.

Using saved SHSH blobs, iH8sn0w was able to downgrade his A5 iPad 2 from iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1. He says his method will also work with the A5X processor once firmware updates are released for the new iPad. That means that it's possible to restore to any firmware you want on A5 devices, as long as you have the SHSH blobs saved.

This is great news for those with the iPhone 4S and newer iPads. As it stands now, if you have to restore for any reason, you will be forced to upgrade to the latest firmware. This could leave you without the ability to jailbreak for some time.

iPhone 4 allegedly combusts while charging overnight



Combustion-1

A Colorado woman reached out to Mashable alleging that her iPhone 4 caught fire while charging overnight. She wanted the tech website to spread public awareness over the reported issue, claiming that Apple has been reticent to acknowledge the alleged incident.

The unnamed source claims that she awoke in the early morning during a recent trip to the east coast to find her year-old white iPhone 4 making "sizzling" and "popping" noises. After an unspecified amount of time there was “not quite an explosion, but an immense crackling,” and smoke plumed from the device creating "an awful, putrid smell, almost like you were ingesting plastic of some kind.”

Citing South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper, Reuters issued yesterday the unverified report claiming that Apple has begun placing orders for a 4.6-inch Retina Display chosen for the next-generation iPhone. The anonymous source also claims that the new iPhone is likely to be revealed in the second quarter of this year.

The rumor suggested that domestic Korean suppliers have received the orders, making Samsung and LG likely candidates as suppliers. Both companies have supplied displays for Apple's mobile products in the past.

iPad 3 Uses Retina Graphics From iPhone Apps



thumb

When the original iPad was released, there weren’t many apps available for the device. So Apple allowed apps developed for the iPhone’s smaller display to run on the iPad by using emulation. The apps could use only a fraction of the iPad’s display. Alternatively, iPhone-specific apps could be run in a 2x mode, utilizing pixel doubling technique to fill the iPad’s display. However, in 2x mode text and artwork look pixilated and blocky.

ipad3-untethered-jailbreak

5mprearcam

Following the iFixit’s dismantiling of an iPad 3, Chipworks has started sharing the results of its own new iPad teardown. The most interesting discovery is that Apple has seemingly reused cameras from its prior devices for both the rear and front cameras of the iPad 3. The rear camera that is shown above seems to be the 5 MP CMOS Image Sensor the company used in the iPhone 4.

First sample photos from new iPad show dramatic improvement over iPad 2



ipadcamera-1

Vietnamese website Tinh.te claimed on Tuesday to have received an LTE-capable version of Apple's new iPad. And soon there appeared a series of photos made by the third-generation iPad.

Later on Tuesday, a group of photos supposedly taken by the new iPad were posted to the website's forums. It's clear from the images that the new iPad camera is not as good as the 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4S, but, when compared to the iPad 2, which had a less-than-1-megapixel resolution, it's a definite step up.
