How to run Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak



absinthe20

Here are recommendations from Chronic Dev Team:

  1. Make a backup of your device in iTunes by right clicking on your device name under the ‘Devices’ menu and click ‘Back Up’.
  2. Once your backup is complete return to your device and go to Settings – General – Reset – Erase all Content and Settings. This will make the jailbreak process much faster.
  3. Open Absinthe and be sure you are still connected via USB cable to your computer.
  4. Click ‘Jailbreak’ and wait…. just be patient and do not disconnect your device.
  5. Once jailbroken return to iTunes and restore your backup from earlier. Right click on your device name under the ‘Devices’ menu in the left panel of iTunes and click ‘Restore from Back Up…’ then select the latest backup you created before. (restoring this backup will return all the content previously on your device ie, apps, photos, etc.)

Step-by-step tutorials are available here.

Thinner 15-Inch MacBook Pro Coming with Retina Display and USB 3.0



thin_mbp_15_comparison

Apple's much-rumored 15-inch MacBook Pro will reportedly receive a new design that will be considerably thinner than the existing MacBook Pro due to the removal of the optical drive.

While many have speculated that the new 15-inch MacBook Pro will pickup the design from the late-2010/mid-2011 MacBook Air, sources familiar with the prototype units say that this is untrue. Instead, the new 15-inch MacBook Pro is described as being an ultra-thin version of the current MacBook Pro. Basically, the prototype design is a thinner, yet more robust, version of the late-2008 design. It has no tapering like the MacBook Airs.

New iPhoto and iMovie apps can be manually copied to the original iPad



iPhotoiPad.1

Apple doesn't support its new iPhoto app, as well as iMovie, on the original iPad. The reason is obvious - the original iPad doesn’t have a camera. But the apps can be installed manually using Apple's iPhone Configuration Utility. iPhoto and iMovie seem to work well enough on the original iPad, although it lacks speed of the iPad 2 and memory of the newest iPad.

To install iMovie and iPhoto to the original iPad you need:

1. to install Apple's free iPhone Configuration Utility, available at http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/enterprise/

2. to buy the apps in iTunes, they'll be within your Music folder under iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications.
