Get Emoji Icons for free





First of all these icons can be viewed on any iPhone with 2.2 firmware. But to be able to send these icons users need to perform additional actions. There are 4 ways to turn them on and 2 of them are free:

Solution N1 for $5.99:

In AppStore buy and install Touch Dial Emoji. Goto Settings -> Touch Dial -> Enable Smiley icon ON. Launch Touch Dial. Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."

Solution N2 for $0.99:

In AppStore buy and install FrostyPlace. Play with the app for a minute to activate, click on a story, etc. Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."

Solution N3 for Free:

Jailbreak your iPhone. Run Cydia and install Emoji application (iSpazio repository). Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."

This application adds boolean ‘true’ key KeyboardEmojiEverywhere edits in /User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Preferences.plist. You can do it manually if you want.

Solution N3 for Free:

Step 1. Download the vcard.vcf here.
Step 2. Import it to your address book program. If you are using Windows, you may want to do it on iPhone directly. Send the vcard.vcf file to yourself. Open in on iPhone’s Email.app, click the vcf file and import all the contacts.
Step 3. Go into “Settings” > “General” > “Keyboard” > “Japanese Keyboard”. Enable the QWERTY keyboard.
Step 4. In notes or any other program you want. Type “emojia”, “emojii” or “emojiu” to select those :) icons.

I like Solution N3. It is free and simple. You do not need to play with contacts and etc. But you need to jailbreak an iPhone.

hClipboard - one more copy/paste solution [Cydia]



This is one more solution to add copy/paste functionality to iPhone. Couple days ago we wrote about Clippy. This one is called hClipboard. Avaliable via Cydia (bigboss repository) for jailbreaked iPhones.

Here is a quick tutorial how to use it:

After installing just enable it in Settings → General → Keyboard → International.

Copy:

When the keyboard appears, switch to ℏClipboard by clicking the International button (the Globe) repeatedly. Then hit the Copy button. The entire content of the text field should now appear in the top of the clipboard.

To select portion of a text:

iPhone 3G unlock tutorial



Dev Team finally made it. They created software called yellowsn0w, that unlocked iPhone 3G. Now you can use any carrier you want. I successfully unlocked my US version.It works much more stable than sim proxy method.

Please, back up everything on your iPhone before you start, just in case. Everything you do is your responsibility. I had to go through all 4 steps to make my iPhone 3G work. I used only my new sim without sim proxy.

Here are the steps:

New autocorrection toggle [Cydia]



Many users want to turn iPhone's autocorrection off. There is a good solution we wrote about: Auto-correction - solution to turn it off. The bad thing is that it works only with english keyboard. If you want to disable autocorrection for Russian, Spanish, German or some other keyboard try ACtoggle.

Unfortunately, it didn't work for my russian keyboard - after turning off KB-autocorrect russian keyboard just disappeared. Hopefully this will be fixed in future versions.

iPhone powered notebook



MobiFrance points us to this intriguing company: http://olo-computer.com/. It looks like they’re intending on developing a low-cost sort of Netbook, but with a difference — it will be powered by the iPhone. The idea is you plug your iPhone into the bottom and it not only becomes the touchpad for the Netbook, it also powers the thing entirely, the rest of the hardware is simply a keyboard, screen, and a few other bits to make it all run.

The idea is nice but very far from being implemented.

iPhone 2.2: Google Street View, Emoji, Auto-Correction Off



Apple released firmware version 2.2 beta 1 a bit more than a week ago. Couple more features were hiden there.

First of all Apple has addressed one common request within the iPhone's Keyboard settings, allowing users to disable the iPhone's auto-correction.

The other feature is for Japanese market - Japanese emoji icons. The lack of emoji support has been blamed as part of the reason for slow iPhone adoption in Japan.

The third new feature is Street View. It allows users to view panoramic street level photographs in select cities within the Google Maps application.

Hopefully we will see more new features in this and next beta's of 2.2 firmware.

10 things we want to see in the iPhone 2.1 Update



The iPhone 2.0 software is pretty good. We like the App Store a lot; it adds a boatload of new functionality to the iPhone. But it's certainly not perfect. Having used it for a few weeks, we've discovered a number of little quirks that we really hope are addressed in the upcoming update. From bugs to missing features, here are ten things that would make the iPhone a much more attractive device.

1. Make it Less Crashy
The iPhone with 2.0 software feels a little… buggy. It'll randomly crash or slow down to the point of unusability until you restart every few days with normal use. That's not right; this is a cellphone. It shouldn't feel like an unstable computer.

Customize 2.1 for firmware 2.0



This application was quite popular. It allows to modify look and feal of your Iphone: icons, slider icon, battery indicator, wi-fi/gsm indicators, dock, keyboard, chat, sounds and mcuh more.

What's new:

  • Theme Browser: you can download them directly from this application, no ssh as before.;
  • Elements of themes can be used partially (just sounds, foe example);
  • User themes can be downloaded through the web site.

Install through Cydia. Source: Hack&Dev Team Source.
