This is what MuscleNerd have seen while trying to make iPhone unlock for iOS 4.1 work. Quite strange and scary. While we can see that UltraSn0w 4.1 is not ready yet, this is good that the work is in progress.

1

Boy Genius Report’s source claims that Apple almost completes the final field testing of a tweaked version of the iPhone 4, known as "iPhone3,2", which is expected to be the Verizon or CDMA-compatible iPhone 4 model. The iPhone3,2 will have similar SIM card slot to iPhone 4 slot, which is not suitable for CDMA phone. Perhaps, Apple is going to release model, which will provide support for both GSM and CDMA and will be compatible with all carriers. The source also reports that the fifth-generation iPhone has entered the "engineering verification test" stage, which the CDMA-based iPhone 4 completed in May.

Apple developed 7-inch iPad alongside current model



1

Jim Dalrymple,  The Loop's author, in a commentary on the latest rumors of Apple plans to release a 7-inch iPad model early next year, notes that such a device has existed in Apple's labs for quite some time. The fact is, Apple already has a 7-inch iPad. The two devices were developed at the same time. They have the same specifications, except, of course, the 9.7-inch model has a higher density screen than its smaller counterpart.

iPhone iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Released from GeoHot, called LimeRa1n



Famous hacker Geohot is back and today he released the latest iOS 4.1 jailbreak. It is called LimeRa1n and supports iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G with iOS firmwares 4.0-4.1 and beyond. It can also hacktivate your device, so there is no need in phone SIM-cards and other tricks.

This software is still in beta and was updated 3 times in last several hours. So use with caution.

There is Windows version only for now. Geohot plans to release LimeRa1n for Mac and Linux soon. You can Download it here.

Some users report that they have jailbroken their iOS 3.2.2 iPads successfully with limera1n, while others report that they tried, but failed.

Do not forget to backup.

For many users of iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0.2 now there is a hope to perform jailbreak using LimeRa1n and unlock using ultrasn0w. We recommend NOT to do it if you have not saved your SHSH keys. You can try, but if something goes wrong without SHSH keys you'll have to restore to iOS 4.1, and there is no unlock for iOS 4.1 (possibly forever). Just wait for PwnageTool utility.

DevTeam reported that Limera1n uses a different exploit than SHAtter, so they will not release SHAtter utility, they don't want let Apple fix both security holes. However they plan to release PwnageTool using the same exploit.

You can find our LimeRa1n tutorials tutorials:

Yesterday MacRumors received the photos of an email, that was presumably sent to Walmart managers and where it is said that every company’s store will initially receive five units of all existing iPad models and ten units of Apple's official iPad accessories. They will appear in 1,000 stores in the end of the October, other stores will be selling them in the beginning of November. Along with bringing the devices and accessories to the shelves the displays in the stores will be translating videos about iPad's features.

Walmart plans to start selling the iPads in 2010 were revealed in May. Previously the company overhauled its electronic departments in retail stores to include the Apple section in addition.

Also, Walmart will be the latest company that will start selling the iPad in this year. Target has been selling the devices since Oct. 3 and Best Buy stores stared offering the iPad since it was launched in April.

Apple's iPad coming to all U.S. Mercedes-Benz dealers



1
After a successful iPad pilot program with 40 dealerships this summer, Mercedes-Benz decided to expand its iPad program to all 355 U.S. dealerships this fall. The "overwhelmingly positive" results from the test program were surprising, said vice president of marketing Andreas Hinrichs. "The feedback was so positive." Dealers use the iPad to apply for loans and fill out paperwork keeping customers on the showroom floor. Although the test program did not provide conclusive evidence that buyers are more willing to purchase a vehicle if they stay in the showroom, Mercedes-Benz made its decision.
