Tutorial: how to connect external HDD to Apple iPad



iPad USB Camera Connection Kit is much more useful as it seems. Max Sha, an experienced user, was able to access external hard drive with this kit. All you need is a jailbroken iPad, an external drive, a split-USB cable to give the drive some power and a terminal of some sort (f.e. MacBook) to mount the external storage. While it is a little unwieldy, it shows that Terabytes of external storage for iPad is possible.

Here is a complete step-by-step guide from Max Sha:

New iPhone Worm Wants User's Bank Passwords



apple_worm

A second iPhone worm virus has been found by security company F-Secure. It is specifically targeting people in the Netherlands who are using their iPhones for internet banking with Dutch online bank ING.

It redirects the bank's customers to a site with a log-in screen (phishing). The worm attacks "jailbroken" phones - a modification which enables the user to run non-Apple approved software on their handset. Only handsets with installed SSH (secure shell) are at risk. SSH is a file-transfer program that enables users to remotely connect to their phones. It comes with a default password, 'alpine' which should be changed.

Here is a tutorial how to change the default SSH password and minimize the risk.

Secure your jailbroken iPhone against worm and hacker attacks



MobileTerminalicon

This is quite simple. If you did a jailbreak on your iPhone you need to change the default password. Why? Because hackers can access your phone, read your mail, sms, download other data. The second reason is because there are already several viruses (worms) that use these default passwords.

Here's a quick step-by-step tutorial.

  1. If you don't have MobileTerminal application installed: for 4.х and 5.x firmwares we have a good step-by-step tutorial, for 3.x just run Cydia, search for MobileTerminal and install.
  2. Run MobileTerminal.
  3. Type passwd and press return.
  4. Enter the default user password alpine and press return.
  5. Enter a new password and press return.
  6. Enter a new password again and press return.
  7. Congratulations, you changed it for default mobile user. Let's do the same for root user.
  8. Login as root user: type su root and press return.
  9. Type alpine for password
  10. Type passwd and press return.
  11. Enter a new password and press return.
  12. Enter a new password again and press return.
  13. That's it!

The passwords are now changed, and your jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch is now a bit more secure than it was before and less vulnerable to the worm detected recently.

Update: Step-By-Step Tutorial: How to install MobileTerminal on iPhone with iOS 4.x and 5.x

Skype, the iPhone and iPod Touch application through which you can call and chat with your Skype contacts, has been updated to version 1.2. There are many updates and new features.

What's new in version 1.2:

  • Even easier to send text messages (SMS) - Send SMS from the Call tab.
  • Calls are connected much faster.
  • Status of your contacts is updated more often.
  • You can now decide whether you want to stay online/offline when the iPhone is  locked. We've added this into settings.
  • Contact groups are now supported, making it easier to see who is online and separate your saved phone numbers.
  • You can now edit the name of your saved phone numbers.
  • Added support for skype: URL schemes in Safari.

Cydia Store - how to purchase apps



The CydiaStore is open for business. Below you can find purchase process so you can see how it works.

Cydia store packages are going to be in blue writing. when you click on one, your install button says “purchase” instead of “install”.

The Cydia store uses two layers of authentication: 1) Authentication 2) Payment. Currently, amazon is used for payments and you can use either facebook or google for authentication. If you have an existing amazon account, facebook account, or google account, this is easy.

You can choose to have this automatically remembered so you don’t have to go through these steps again if you want. Also you now need to link the device you’re using to your account:

After this is done, you now need to setup payment. There are steps to take on teh very first time, but if you allow it to be kept, it will be remembered for the second purchase. Note you can also set pay limit for one-click installs without having to reenter a password in the future:

After, sign in with your Amazon password and finish checkout:

After this, you hit the “close” button and wait. It took about 20 seconds for me. Now the package shows that it’s purchased and ready for download:

After this, updates and such are treated normally. If you selected the correct options, it will be very easy to purchase the next item.

UPDATE: you can use paypal now :)
