VoIP app from Vonage





vonage

Vontge company is known to it's Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service. Recently Vonage has submitted an iPhone application to Apple. The application's approval has been delayed by minor technical issues with the application.

"They submitted an application for review," said Apple spokesperson Natalie Kerris told Tech Trader Daily. "There are some technical issues [with the code they submitted] that hopefully can be resolved." Kerris did not elaborate on the nature of the issues with Vonage's application.
In an update to the article, Vonage reported that it has fixed the issue and resubmitted the application to Apple for approval.

"We can confirm that one of our prospective applications is for the iPhone. They identified one issue stating that it is 'simple to fix.' The issue is cosmetic and relates to the labeling of an icon. We've made the requested change and resubmitted the application for approval earlier today."

Anyway this app will be restricted to Wi-Fi only for voip phone calls once it appears in the App Store.

  1. Download both firmware 3.0 and firmware 3.0.1 (link).
  2. Download redsn0w 0.8 (link).
  3. Update or restore to official 3.0.1 in iTunes.
  4. Run redsn0w.
  5. When redsn0w asks you to identify the IPSW used, point it at the 3.0 IPSW instead of the 3.0.1 one.
  6. Follow the instructions.
  7. After the jailbreak, reinstall ultrasn0w 0.9 if you need the unlock.

Cydia Store - how to purchase apps



The CydiaStore is open for business. Below you can find purchase process so you can see how it works.

Cydia store packages are going to be in blue writing. when you click on one, your install button says “purchase” instead of “install”.

The Cydia store uses two layers of authentication: 1) Authentication 2) Payment. Currently, amazon is used for payments and you can use either facebook or google for authentication. If you have an existing amazon account, facebook account, or google account, this is easy.

You can choose to have this automatically remembered so you don’t have to go through these steps again if you want. Also you now need to link the device you’re using to your account:

After this is done, you now need to setup payment. There are steps to take on teh very first time, but if you allow it to be kept, it will be remembered for the second purchase. Note you can also set pay limit for one-click installs without having to reenter a password in the future:

After, sign in with your Amazon password and finish checkout:

After this, you hit the “close” button and wait. It took about 20 seconds for me. Now the package shows that it’s purchased and ready for download:

After this, updates and such are treated normally. If you selected the correct options, it will be very easy to purchase the next item.

UPDATE: you can use paypal now :)

Trojan virus in iTunes?



itunes-virus

If you have updated AVG to the latest version, your antivirus may indicate the presence of a Trojan virus inside the iTunes directory. Files iTunes.dll and iTunesRegistry.dll are mistaken as Trojan horse Small.BOG.

This problem was found by many people, Apple support forum is full of similar reports. If you use Windows and have encountered the same problem, just wait for a patch to antivirus software and delete the iTunes directory from scanning with AVG.

sdk

Apple releases new iPod Touch / iPhone firmware - 3.1 beta 3, just couple weeks after firmware 3.1 beta 2. As usual it is only for and avaliable via developer.apple.com. iPhone 3.1 Beta 2 expires tomorrow, July 28 at 12am (device local time). The OS weighs is around 307MB.

You can now copy/paste videos into email like pictures. Previously you could only use the share option which would compress the video to a lower resolution. New functionality was tested with a 33 second video clip (14.7MB), sent via gmail. The recieved file was 640×480 / 30fps. Sending the same file via the share function resulted in a size of 3.21MB and 480×320 / 30fps. Here is a video demo:

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.

iTunes updated to version 8.2.1 - Palm Pre sync disabled



itunes821

Apple has released a minor update to iTunes, version 8.2.1 available via pop up when you open iTunes, or when you launch Apple Software Update:

iTunes 8.2.1 provides a number of important bug fixes and addresses an issue with verification of Apple devices.

What it does, is it breaks Palm Pre sync. Maybe there are some other fixes. If you use jailbreak, we do NOT recommend you this upgrade. Other users can download it here.

  • More items have been localized, such as "In Play", "Request access WiFi".
  • Developers will be able to use WiFi for debuging, etc.
  • Baseband is now version 05:10:01. This means that all those who use unlock - do not update yet.

purplesn0w: iPhone 3GS unloсk solution from GeoHot



purplesn0w

Geohot, the creator of purplera1n, has just released his own iPhone 3GS software unlock and named it purplesn0w. Who is purplesn0w for? If you own a jailbroken iPhone 3GS running firmware 3.0 and you want to unlock it to use it with another carrier (T-Mobile only in the USA), then purplesn0w is for you. Are you experiencing wifi/battery/other unlocking problems after using ultrasn0w? Then I highly recommend you try purplesn0w. Geohot says that it’s the best unlock out there.

purplesn0w doesn't run any deamon (resident app) on the iPhone, it just patches three files: CommCenter, lockdownd, and wildcard. You need an activated device in order to use purplesn0w, this is a minus.

Here is how to install purplesn0w:

  • Make sure you have an activated iPhone 3GS. If you have T-Mobile make sure you disable 3G in the settings.
  • Open Cydia, and add http://apt.geohot.com to your sources
  • Install the com.geohot.purplesn0w package
  • Watch for the success output in Cydia
  • Reboot your iPhone 3GS

Once you have followed the steps above, your iPhone 3GS should be unlocked.

Update: Geohot has also posted technical details of purplesn0w here along with the source code of purplesn0w. He plans to release an updated version of purplesn0w with hactivation support.
