Pwnagetool for iPhone with iOS 4.1 will be released by Sunday



Hacker MuscleNerd has tweeted that the DevTeam plans to release PwnageTool for iOS 4.1 in several days.

For AppleTV 2G users, the goal is for PwnageTool to cover you by Funday/Sunday (but still very limited app capability)

This release should also bring jailbreak for iPod touch and iPad Mac users.

PwnageTool is a Mac OS X jailbreak tool. One of it's advantages is the ability to preserve old baseband, which means you can have firmware iOS 4.1 with baseband from iOS 4.0 (if you haven't updated to 4.1 already). And this brings unlcok, because iOS 4.0 is unlockable.

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:

Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with RedSn0w 0.9.6 b1 is now available for Windows



redsn0w-0-9-6-b1

RedSn0w 0.9.6 b1 for Mac OS X was released a while ago. Today DevTeam created a version for Windows users. RedSn0w 0.9.6 b1 can jailbreak iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.1 running on iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2G.

You can download it here.

Redsn0w is easy to use:

  1. Download firmware here.
  2. Launch redsn0w 0.9.6 b1
  3. Select your stock 4.1 or 4.0 ipsw (you’ve already used this to update your device to 4.1 or 4.0)
  4. Select “Install Cydia” and any of the other options shown above, then click “Next”. Use DFU mode to install the jailbreak.

This is still beta, so there might be some problems:

Any Windows users seeing “Waiting for reboot” for too long (more than 20 seconds or so), please try “shaking” the JB process by unplugging then replugging your USB cable (while letting redsn0w continue to run). Also, try using a USB port “closer” to your computer (as opposed to on your monitor or behind another hub).

As usual DevTeam reminds us:

IF YOU USE THE ULTRASN0W UNLOCK, PLEASE WAIT FOR PWNAGETOOL TO SUPPORT 4.1. DO NOT USE REDSN0W

That’s because to use redsn0w at 4.1, you need to already have updated to official 4.1 from Apple. If you do that, you lose the ultrasn0w unlock (possibly forever).

Firmware Updates Address Charging Issues With 2007-2008 MacBooks



1

Yesterday Apple released a pair of firmware updates for the 2007-2008 MacBook and MacBook Pro models. These updates should solve the problems connecting with fact that machines not charging properly when used with the new "L-shaped" MagSafe power adapters. Apple redesigned the MagSafe adapter in early 2010. The new adapter routes the power cable back instead of jutting out perpendicular to the machine. Apple initially used the "L-shaped" MagSafe adapter for the MacBook Air, as its slimmer profile and cord orientation enabled the connector to fit the notebook's form factor without hindering its ability to rest on flat surfaces.

MobileMe Gallery App Now iPad-Compatible



1

Apple updated its MobileMe Gallery application for the iOS platform. The application was realized in January this year.  Current update brings iPad computability and full support for the higher-resolution Retina displays of the iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod touch. In June Apple already added the ability for the iPhone 4 to download higher-resolution photos, but this update extends Retina display optimization to the entire application. The update also brings support for multi-tasking and the ability for iPhone and iPad users to view friends' galleries without the need for a MobileMe subscription.

CNet video: AppleTV review



CNet reviewd the new Apple TV 2-nd generation. Here's what they think of it:

The good: Costs $99; rent movies and TV shows from the iTunes Store; 99-cent HD TV show rentals on some Fox and ABC shows; supports Netflix streaming; incredibly small design; outstanding user interface; can be controlled by iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch; streams music and videos from PCs and Macs running iTunes; promising future AirPlay functionality should be available in November.

The bad: Very limited selection of TV shows, especially compared with Amazon Video On Demand; confusion between what's available on Apple TV iTunes Store and PC-based iTunes store; doesn't support the full suite of media apps (Pandora, etc.) available on the iPhone and iPad; can't connect to older, pre-HDMI TVs.

The bottom line: The Apple TV's new low $99 price makes it an easy impulse buy for Apple fans looking to bring Netflix into the living room, but you may want to wait until more content--or Apple's forthcoming AirPlay update--becomes available.
