DevTeam Releases Tethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 Beta 6



ios-5-beta-6-jailbreak

The iPhone Dev-Team released RedSn0w 0.9.8b6 that supports tethered jailbreak for the most recent iOS 5 beta 6:

We've released redsn0w 0.9.8b6 to jailbreak iOS5 beta6 (point it directly at the beta6 IPSW).

Two important notes about this version:
(1) Please let your device boot normally to IOS5b6 and do a clean shutdown (slide to power off) before jailbreaking.

(2) Boot logos have intentionally been disabled for now, so you'll see a black screen on tethered boots (you can re-enable logos or verbose boot with command-line options if you really want them back).

Due increased sensitivity to abrupt filesystem shutdowns in IOS5b6, it's very important that you do a clean shutdown before running redsn0w.

RedSn0w 0.9.8b6 supports tethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad 1.

You can download RedSn0w 0.9.8b6 for Windows and Mac OS here.

Apple Planning Entirely New Mac Product Line



mac_lineup

Japanese site Macotakara reports that Apple may be planning on unveiling an all new Mac that is “absolutely different from current products” and potentially set for introduction by the end of the year. The site also claims that  the product will be so different from current product lines that it will indeed be given a new name.

According to anonymous source in Asian supplier company, Apple seems to be preparing project to release new Mac line-up which is absolutely different from current products until end of this year.

Though this source does not told in detail, this new Mac line seems to be clearly different products from current ones, so new product name could be given.

It’s a possibility these are the ultra-thin air-like MacBooks, or perhaps Apple is designing an all new product that will see a platform switch from Intel to ARM processors.

iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Starting on September 30, October 7 Launch



iphone 5 pre orders

9to5mac reports that Apple might launch the next-generation iPhone on October 7, with pre-orders likely starting on September 30, a week before the launch.

Apple currently plans to begin pre-orders for their next-generation smartphone in the final days of September. The company has still not finalized the pre-order start date, but is debating between Thursday, September 29th and Friday, September 30th. The 30th seems more likely at this point according to one of our sources.

If pre-orders scheduled for September 30, so Apple would need to unveil the new iPhone in September. Many believes that Apple will announce new device at the traditional Fall media event: whereas the company has usually preferred September to hold a music event to announce new iPods and new versions of iTunes.

If Apple doesn’t release a new iPhone this summer, the company is expected to unveil the device as its usual event in the Fall, with iCloud, OS X 10.7.2 and iOS 5 also believed to drop by then.
