Apple updates MacBook Air firmware to address display issue





firmware update

On Wednesday Apple released a MacBook Air EFI firmware update 2.0 to resolve issue with display. The update is recommended for all new 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models and requires Mac OS X 10.6.5. It addresses problems where the MacBook Air is unresponsive or displays just a black screen after booting or waking. Despite scattered reports of issues with the MacBook Air, the laptop has continued to sell well, especially the 11-inch model. Analysts tracking retail activity on Black Friday found that the 11-inch MacBook Air was "flying off the shelves" and a "customer favorite."

QuickTime version updated to 7.6.9



qt769

Yesterday Apple released a new 7.6.9 version of QuickTime media software, which has 15 vulnerabilities patched, including issues with FlashPix, PICT, GIF and JP2 images and AVI, MPEG, Sorenson, QTVR and other movie files. Most of it could cause an arbitrary code execution in case of exploit or unexpected application termination.

The security update is necessary only for Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 and Windows users, as Mac OS X 10.6.5 already has fixes to the vulnerabilities included.

QuckTime 7.6.9 can be installed through Software Update or by visiting the QuickTime website.

iPhone 4 is the most difficult product to buy in China



chinaunicom

Ticongera Securities analyst Brian White provided another update for investors while touring the Far East. In his note he says that iPhone 4, iPad and 11-inch MacBook Air are the most difficult products to purchase in China.

Local carrier China Unicom cannot fulfill almost a third of preorders, and people wait for their devices for around two months. That creates wide growth opportunities in China, and White says Apple's interest in this market is definitely positive.

WARNING: updating to iPad baseband for iPhone unlock may disable your GPS



baseband-update

The iPhone Dev-Team has issued a notice stating that updating your iPhone to the iPad baseband for unlock could result in the loss of GPS functionality.

Unlockers have been reporting mixed results about GPS functionality at 06.15.00. Until we can track down what differentiates those who retain GPS vs. those who lose it, be conservative and assume you’ll lose GPS at 06.15.00. As we work on finding the cause (and possibly a fix), please report your personal findings in our comments section. (Update: early indications are that while 06.15.00 is capable of GPS, it will require some further hacks. But please still be conservative and assume you will lose GPS at 06.15, in case the hacks don’t work).

Hackers are currently working to fix this.

As usual we remind all users - if you don't absolutely need to update your baseband, don't do it.

Apple studies the idea of radial menus



radial-macosx

According to MacNN report, another yesterday granted patent application reveals that Apple devises new radial pop-up menus which will be an alternative to currently used drop-down menus. Peter Warner, who is listed as a "Designer at Apple" in his LinkedIn profile, is the inventor of this patent.

The application assures that radial menus can be more efficient than the current model of moving 'to menubar to select standard features', which is used in almost every major operational system. An order for both menus can be static and prioritized, when higher priority items are being displayed more prominently.

iphoneroot-repo

We have already written about new Cydia version 1.0.3366-1 that was released recently. It is much faster and has many new other improvements.

We have decided to make Cydia update easy, so we have added Cydia v1.0.3366-1 to our repository. To update Cydia just add our repository in Cydia: http://iphoneroot.com/repo/ and update.

To add repository run Cydia. Go to Manage -> Sources. Click Edit (top right corner), after that click Add (top left corner), type http://iphoneroot.com/repo/ and click Add Source button. Then click Return to Cydia and Done button. After that you can either click on iphoneroot.com select Cydia and install it or go to Changes and update it there.

New version of Cydia 1.0.3366-1 is ready



cydia3366

The new version 1.0.3366-1 of Cydia  is ready.

Commenting on the release Saurik said:

some of my long term performance plans are 'hitting pay dirt', and Cydia is much faster than it was before; that said, it isn't done yet: there's one more thing that I think is going to make a huge difference that isn't even in there yet but should be for the final release.

This version of Cydia is included in the latest release of RedSn0w, and can also be downloaded as deb file from here. But if you're on an iPhone 4 or other already jailbroken device, you can still install it. There are 4 different ways to do that:

iPhone Dev-Team releases RedSn0w 0.9.6b5 for unlockers



redsn0w-096b5

The iPhone Dev-Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.6b5 for unlockers stuck at the 05.14 or 05.15 basebands.

The new redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 is out.  It gives both Windows and OSX users the ability to flash the iPad 06.15 baseband on iPhone3G or iPhone3GS.  It fetches the baseband files directly from Apple for now (the only IPSW you ever point it at is the stock IPSW for the FW on your iPhone right now).  There may be a long delay while it’s doing this (their servers are currently getting pounded).

You can download the new version of RedSn0w here:

Windows 7 and Vista users, please run redsn0w as Administrator in "XP Compatiblity Mode".

We will soon post step-by-step tutorials.

UPDATE: tutorial for iPhone 3G (Windows), tutorial for iPhone 3GS (Windows)
