iTunes 8.2 released





itunes

Apple released iTunes 8.2. You can download it here.

This update breaks your ability to use QuickPwn, PwnageTool, and iPhone Tunneling Suite (ssh over usb). Many file managers do not work with iTunes 8.2 installed. We don’t think this is a deliberate breakage of these tools.  It’s just that Apple has updated a low-level USB protocol. It may also break Palm Pre’s connection to the device.

So if you jailbreak, we recommend you not to update.

Ants are back [Cydia]



ants1

Once again we have the ability to have ants running on our iPhone. This little toy was available on firmware 1.1.x. Now the developer has update the code to support firmware 2.x. If you don’t remember ants take a look at the video below. This toy is easy to use. As you might remember you open the app and activate the ants. Then open your notes and watch the ants fill the screen. You can smash them or shake your iPhone to remove them. Ants is available in Cydia for jailbreaked iPhones.

Fuzzyband replaces 3G Baseband Downgrader



hazdowngrade

3G Fuzzyband Downgrader is now available in Сydia. This should be used instead of 3G Baseband Downgrader for downgrading the baseband on phones containing the 5.8 bootloader.

Benefits over original downgrader:

  • Does version checking, will only downgrade if phone is eligible
  • Downgrades all versions of baseband from 2.30.03 to 4.26.08 (3.0 beta5)
  • Reports current bootloader version on screen

The original downgrader was a possibly dangerous app, as it relied on a failed downgrade to decide whether downgrading was possible. Anytime you run BBUpdaterExtreme you are potentially doing damage to the modem, so the version checking in this app minimizes the chances of accidently corrupting the baseband.

What's new in Firmware 3.0 Beta4: 12 changes



Here is a list of changes from iSapzio (sorry, screenshots are in Italian):

1. You can now enter to Settings-Store to see the balance and billing information:

11 12 13

2. Another change concerns volume control in the iPod app (or the "Music" on iPod Touch). While using Firmware 3.0 beta 4 on iPod Touch first generation, we can see that the controls for the volume are gone. This is an intelligent system, that turns on and off volume control, depending on USB, headphones and AD2P connection:

21 22 23

3. Fixed problems with iPhoto and displaying thumbnails of the screenshots / images from the CameraRoll.

New Skype ver 1.0.3



skype_icon

Skype is updated to version 1.0.3. Here is a changelog:

  • Fixed crashing when clicking on certain contacts in the contact list.
  • Fixed crashing when returning to the contact list after having accepted a contact authorization request in specific cases.
  • Improved the handling of international calling prefixes in SkypeOut calling.

You might still see a pop-up (first time launch) saying that the application works only on non-jailbroked devices. I can assure you that it works rather well, without any problems.

New Version of Google Mobile iPhone App Features Added "Ninja"



g

We don't have an explanation for this, but the new version of the Google Mobile App for iPhone/iPod Touch lists some pretty wacky improvements, notably "Longer Version Number" and "Ninja." This screen can be seen in the "Update Details" section of the app. We hope some fun-loving Google employee didn't just get fired for his ninja-humor-based initiative.

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.
