Retina Displays Also Coming to Next-Generation iMac





imacs_2011_lion

Joanna Stern from ABC News claims that not only the MacBook Pro family but also the iMac line is set to gain ultra high-resolution "Retina" displays.

The laptop will see the introduction of the “Mac Retina Display,” which is said to have a very high resolution. ABC News has similarly heard from its own sources that both the next MacBook Pro and the iMac would be getting very, very high-resolution displays. Apple refreshed its new iPad with a Retina Display in March.

It seems natural that Apple wants to move all its displays to the retina standard. But, it’s unclear, how Apple will implement the increased resolution given that most Macs already approach Retina resolution at typical viewing distances.

When will we see untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak



Now we have some estimations regarding the release of the iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak. Pod2g noted that it is at least a month away.

ETA for 5.1 JB: no clue! We're going to set pieces of the puzzle together this week. We could have issues... Could be 1 month maybe 2...

I know 1 month seems long, but it's short to work on a project like this when it's a hobby and you've other things to do as well.

Last week, pod2g reported that the Chronic Dev-Team has all the exploits required to release an untethered jailbreak of iOS 5.1 for all devices, including iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. However it would take some time to put it together into a useable release.

iPhone Dev-Team Updates RedSn0w to Save iPhone Unlock Tickets



redsn0w-0910b8 redsn0w-0910b8-1

The iPhone Dev-Team has updated RedSn0w with the ability to save iPhone unlock tickets (SAM unlock).

redsn0w 0.9.10b8 adds the ability to backup arbitrary directories or files from your device into a zip file on your Mac or PC. The new button is Extras->Even More->Backup and it requires your device to be jailbroken with the afc2 service enabled (most jailbreaks include that). By default it will backup your activation records from /var/root/Library/Lockdown, which is useful for everyone taking advantage of today's SAM unlock using Loktar_Sun's trick

You can download the new version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 here.

You can save unlock tickets through Extras -> Even More -> Backup.
