Changelog for 0.98: March 29, 2009:
The original Wolfenstein is now available for free for the . You need to jailbreak your phone to get in on the fun. The game is truly a classic. This is a first-person shooter in which we should govern our character among many doors and endless mazes. The controls are "fairly" good, based solely on the touch screen.
Wolf3D avaliable from Cydia, repository ZodTTD.
- New iPhone announcement around mid-June
- New iPhone will be faster and have a more seamless experience unmatched by any device (could be just talking about 3.0, but we think it’s also a new iPhone)
- U-Verse iPhone application; will allow control of your home DVR (play, pause, rewind, etc.)
- AT&T is said to be working with Apple to create a unified product with an unparalleled experience across all their products and services.
- Apple’s 3.0 software should tell us where the iPhone platform is going… uh, k?
- They said customers shouldn’t need to choose from AT&T’s high-end devices because of features, they should choose based on preferences. The gap in capability should be filled with the new iPhone. Ok, bets on slide out QWERTY, autofocus camera, video sharing, blah blah?
- Seems like the higher speed HSDPA (7.2Mbps) is being hinted at too which should confirm the earlier rumors of the new Infineon chipset.
- The $99 3G netbook will start selling this summer, and the first one won’t be a Windows OS.

News from DevTeam:
iPhone 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices. It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint and wait for PwnageTool to create a custom IPSW that avoids the baseband update. If you are using yellowsn0w, do not update or restore to iPhone 3.0 firmware. You will lose yellowsn0w and find yourself unable to revert the baseband to get it back.

Here are several photos that show how Clippy works:
This tool allows you to install the OpeniBoot on iPhone and iPod Touch. This offers the possibility of using the Linux console on our Apple devices. Once the code is installed we will be able to choose whether to enter iPhone OS or start the Linux console. The file to install the OpeniBoot can only be run on Linux or Mac. But there will be a package for Windows users soon.
You can see the video-demonstration here:
Where to download QuickOiB:
PolarClock is the official polar coordinates clock for the iPhone/iPod Touch. It has arcs which extend from 0 degrees to 360 degrees as the interval (i.e. hour, min, sec) extends. The arcs reset once they reach the end of the arctic interval. It's an interesting and unique way to visualize the time and the moon!
5-Row Keyboard is a new add-on to iPhone that is part of the project iKeyEx. It allows users to use a new 5 lines keyboard, where there are numbers in addition to the letters. Clicking the 123 button will display all the additional symbols.
To see the keyboard you must click on the globe. If the keyboard does not appear, you must activate it via the Settings > General > Keyboards > International Keyboards > 5 Row QWERTY.
One of the most elusive and desired apps for iPhone is turn-by-turn GPS navigation. We heard that TomTom was developing a GPS navigator. To date, it hasn't shipped. Recently, the focus has been on xGPS, an app that requires a jailbroken iPhone to work.
At Mobile World Congress 2009 (MWC09) in Barcelona, Spain, Sygic is demoing a version of their namesake GPS navigation software running on an iPhone 3G. The Sygic software uses maps from TeleAtlas, the same company that supplies map data for Google Maps. Sygic produces similar software for Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.
Applicatin has turn-by-turn GPS directions with voice prompts, points of interest, support for multiple countries, and locally-stored maps.
xGPS uses Google's map data and driving directions, adding a real-time navigation readout and a voice engine. You can also select a map area to download ahead of time, just in case you expect to lose your data connection during the drive. There is also a night mode for those who hate bright white screen shining at night.
Sounds like one more reason to jailbreak. Watch the video, how this nice app works:
Once the app is installed, PCs on the internet can access the iPhone to upload or download files through a browser or they can use the webDAV protocol. If the PC and the iPhone are on the same network, the PC can connect directly. If they are on separate networks, then FreeBit's VPN software will engage the connection.
At the moment, the ServersMan@iPhone is only available in the Japanese App Store, but an English version is coming in March. A port for Windows Mobile devices is also under development.
