Apple confirms: iTunes 8.2.1 crashes synchronize Palm Pre



itunes-logo

New version of iTunes was released recently and as we wrote in addition to fixing some bugs it has been locked synchronization with the third-party devices, including Palm Pre.

Here is an answer from Tom Neumayr (the same as Apple):

"As we have said before, the new versions of iTunes will not sync with digital readers are not supported, or rather, those who pretend via Software to be an iPod, including the Palm Pre".

Palm's answer was quite simple:

"Get an older version of iTunes and enjoy syncronization".

ultrasn0w 0.9: ideas from GeoHot, implementation from DevTeam



ultrasnow

DevTeam updated ultrasn0w. They removed the daemon and used ideas of GeoHot's purplesn0w, but implemented these ideas in a better safer way. New ultrasn0w 0.9 uses 152 bytes of baseband RAM, which is 6900 timesless than purplesn0w. They also use mobile substrate to patch CommCenter, instead of patching the file itself.

Here is a list of features from DevTeam.

  • Works on both 3G and 3GS.
  • Works on hacktivated devices.
  • Works regardless of how you jailbroke your device.
  • Doesn’t patch any mach-o binary whatsoever.  (Doesn’t require a separate patch as each new firmware comes out).
  • Doesn’t install any additional daemon
  • Has no race conditions, no popups about “Missing SIM”, no network issues
  • Is almost 7000 times smaller than its nearest competition :)
  • Is available now via Cydia.  Source repo is http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com (that last “0” in ultrasn0w is a zero!)

Anyway this new solution is a very good one. It uses good ideas in a good way. We recommend to use ultrasnow.

So if you want to share a picture with someone just call the copy/paste and click "Paste." You can QuickShottr in any application, f.e. in instant messaging that does not support sending and receiving images. This functionality is also very useful for bloggers or those who must quickly send images.

Current version is 1.1, it has been improved a lot since 1.0. There is also a SBSettings toggle called QuickShottr Toggle, that will allow to activate and deactivate this QuickShottr functionality through a simple click.

iPhone 3GS is hacked [Photo]



iphone3gs-jailbreak-2 iphone3gs-jailbreak1

These are the first images of a Jailbroken iPhone 3GS. GeoHotz published them in his blog. DevTeam will publish an updated release of the tool only after the release of firmware 3.0.1. The reason is simple: Given that the Firmware 3.0 is full of bugs, it is clear that Apple will release an update soon. If the DevTeam release new tool, Apple will probably be able to block them with the next update. Tomorrow afternoon we will find more details on the official DevTeam blog. By the way firmware 3.0.1 is scheduled to be released in July.
