No more porn in AppStore?



nomorehotgirls

Hottest Girls, the first porn app in AppStore, was removed. Some say Apple did that, others say that developers did that themselves because of huge traffic overload. Who knows.. but for now no more hootest girls.

JavaScript Benchmarks results: iPhone 3GS vs iPhone 3G vs T-Mobile G1 vs Palm Pre



speed-iphone_3gs

Medialets today released the results of JavaScript benchmark tests performed using the SunSpider test suite on the iPhone 3G and 3GS, the T-Mobile G1 running Android, and the Palm Pre running webOS. The use of the SunSpider suite for benchmarking studies enables cross-platform comparisons among the devices, as they all utilize WebKit-based Web browsers. In the Medialets study, the iPhone 3GS outperformed the Palm Pre by a factor of three and the T-Mobile G1 by over a factor of five.

Notably, Medialets also tested the iPhone 3G running both iPhone OS 2.2.1 and OS 3.0, revealing that iPhone OS 3.0 provides a nearly three-fold improvement in performance over OS 2.2.1 running on the same hardware. The shift to the iPhone 3GS increases performance a further three-fold.

The iPhone2,1 will be identical to the iPhone 3G?



iphone21

Some users of the forum MacTalk.com.au have examined the latest version of the iPhone SDK 3.0 and have found the icons of all iPhone models. Each of these can be easily recognized. There is "iPhone1, 1" (representing the model EDGE), "iPhone1, 2" (the current 3G) and "iPhone2, 1" which represents a future iPhone models.

As you can see, the icon of iPhone2, 1 is completely identical to that of the 3G model which differs from the EDGE. However these images cannot prove that the next model of iPhone will be completely identical (in appearance) to 3G.

YXFlash: player for Xvid, DivX, Flash and more



yxflashicon

YXFlash is a new application that is available in Cydia and includes the codecs to display Xvid / DivX video files . We will not longer need to convert movies into a format supported by Apple. The converted videos do play a bit smoother due to hardware acceleration, but xvid videos are watchable, at least the ones I tested. The player also plays flash content if you have downloaded flash flv videos to your device. It is not a web based flash player, this does not play flash videos embedded on websites. In order to add the videos just upload them using iFunBox or iPhone Browser.

Here is the complete list of formats supported by the complete version:

  • Flash Video -> .flv
  • Mpeg4, H.264
  • Windows Media Video (.wmv)
  • Xvid/DivX (.avi)
  • MP4, MP3, AAC and Windows Media Audio

The free version offers support only for MP3 and DivX. You can download the application via Cydia in the BigBoss repository. The full version costs around $10.

iPhone 3G Baseband Downgrade GUI [Cydia]



3gbbd

WARNING: This tool is NOT a toy. Just use it if you can’t use yellowsn0w on your 2.2.1 iPhone 3G. Otherwise, DO NOT INSTALL IT JUST TO TEST! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

This software is for iPhone 3G users who upgraged to 2.2.1 firmware, but still need yellowsnow unlock. Yellowsnow doesn't work with 2.2.1 firmware's 02.30.03 baseband. So we need to downgrade it to version 02.28.00, that was used in 2.2 firmware. To downgrade it you need this software, that you can install via Cydia. It is very easy to use. Just download it from Cydia (called 3G BaseBand Downgrage), open the app and click Go.

The 3G Baseband Downgrade just works on iPhones 3G with Bootloader 5.8, that can be detected using minicom. If you don’t know how to use minicom, there’s a “simple” way to know if you are 5.8 or 5.9 (but this is not 100% sure). If your iPhone was manufactured before September (2008), you are 5.8. Otherwise, you are 5.9 (that can’t be downgraded).

Video Recording, voice control and compass in future iPhone



cameraui

It looks like the iPhone will record video this summer. Buried in the latest iPhone 3.0 beta is this screenshot of what's obviously the iPhone's still dormant video recording interface. Besides the honking red record button in the center, there's a toggle to switch between the still camera and video recording. Inside the configuration files where the screen was discovered were mentions of an "auto-focus camera," "magnetometer" (digital compass), and "Voice Control."

Skype crashes on jailbraked iPhones



jailbreak_skype

If you have jailbreaked iPhone your Skype app may crash. Here is what we know so far:

  • If Skype crashes when trying to input text: Disable both Clippy (Use SBSettings toggle) and any custom Winterboard sounds relating to the keyboard tick (tock.aiff).
  • If Skype crashes within 1 minute of having the app open: Update app called mobile substrate in Cydia. Uninstalling mobile substrate also fixes the problem, but you will lose features such as winterboard and sbsettings.

UPDATE: Many users report that Skype works fine with the latest version of Clippy (0.98-2) without the need to turn the latter off.
