The Complete Transcript of Steve Jobs' Apple Q4 Earnings Call



Here's the Apple CEO in his own words talking during Apple Q4 Earnings Call:

Hi, everybody. As most of you know, I don’t usually participate in Apple earnings calls, since you’re all in such capable hands with Peter and Tim. But I just couldn’t help dropping by for our first 20-billion-dollar quarter. I’d like to chat about a few things, and then stay for the rest of the Q&A, if that’s all right.

First, let me discuss iPhone. We sold 14.1 million iPhones in the quarter, which represents a 91 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter, and was well ahead of IDC’s latest published estimate of 64 percent growth for the global smartphone market in the September quarter. And it handily beats RIM’s 12.1 million BlackBerrys sold, in their most recent quarter ending in August.

Chronic Dev-Team Releases GreenPois0n Jailbreak for iOS 4.1



Today the Chronic Dev-Team released their jailbreak utility called Greenpois0n. There are currently two versions - for Windows and for Linux users. The team is working on a Mac version, so it will be released soon. Greenpois0n supports only firmware iOS 4.1, so use Limera1n if you want to jailbreak iOS 4.0, iOS 4.0.1 or iOS 4.0.2.

Remember: Do not update to iOS 4.1 if you need the unlock. Ultrasn0w does not support that baseband yet.

Hackers used the bootrom exploit found by Geohot and used in limera1n.

Unlock for iOS 4.1 and 4.2 is possible



Hacker Sherif Hashim has discovered an exploit in iPhone's baseband which could bring an unlock for iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2. Here are tweets from him:

@sherif_hashim: since nearly all my received tweets ask about both BB, I can report very early "initial" 1st step success on both sides, calmed down? :)

@sherif_hashim: @mrpauldurden a bit more sure than this, yeah

@mrpauldurden: @sherif_hashim very early first steps means.. you've found a crash that can potentially prove to be an expoitable vulnerability?

In the past Hashim found a baseband crash in iOS 4.0, his work brought us ultrasn0w 1.01, utility from DevTeam to unlock iPhone with iOS 4.0.
Another hacker Veeence tweets that the unlock won't be released till iOS 4.2. Apple plans to release 4.2 in November:

@veeence: A new exploitable baseband crash has been found. An unlock will very likely be released after iOS 4.2 and will unlock both BB's of 4.1 & 4.2

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.

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.

Will T-Mobile Get iPhone 3GS, not 4, later this year?



Screen-shot-2010-09-07-at-10.35.56-PM

Let's look at the following statement of the editor of Wired, Chris Anderson:

"T-Mobile's manager told him that the iPhone 3GS (not a 4 model) is going to arrive a bit later this year".

Frankly speaking, many users are disappointed because they are looking forward to getting the iPhone 4.

iPhone as digital microscope



Here's a great and super-simple mod that turns an iPhone 4 into a portable digital microscope. Using an inexpensive microscope  an SE Mini 45X found on Amazon (seven bucks as of this writing), an iPhone case and some superglue, this user has hacked together a stable, portable digital microscope that also takes pictures.

The iPhone's flat back makes attaching the microscope super easy. After getting it glued to the case, simply snap it onto the iPhone and start observing things close up! For bonus points, pair the iPhone with BlueCam for iPad, which feeds an iPhone 4's live video stream to an iPad via Bluetooth for big-screen observations.

Future iPads: You Want A Camera With That?



ipad

Steve Jobs might announce something yesterday he wasn’t supposed to. At yesterday’s event, Jobs indicated that iOS 4.2 would include all of the features included in versions 4.0 and 4.1 for the iPhone. When the iPad’s iOS is updated this November to version 4.2 it will be the first significant upgrade for the device since it debuted last spring.

Would that include HDR photography? If so, this would mean that at some point the iPad will be getting a camera. Perhaps Jobs was simply lost in the moment and meant nothing with his comment. But let’s be honest: Would anyone be surprised to hear that the iPad is getting a camera?
