You had spent minutes or even hours organizing your countless applications into Folders and finally noticed that folders gone and your apps exploded back across your Home Screen. Not surprising! Unfortunately, the disappearing folders had been noticed already in iOS 4 came out in June. So we see that the bug wasn’t fixed. Since it’s been around for several months and is still around after iOS 4.2 release it’s hard to understand the cause. Some users have experienced it after updating to a new version of iTunes, others after updating their applications on-device or doing hard resets.

some of my long term performance plans are 'hitting pay dirt', and Cydia is much faster than it was before; that said, it isn't done yet: there's one more thing that I think is going to make a huge difference that isn't even in there yet but should be for the final release.
This version of Cydia is included in the latest release of RedSn0w, and can also be downloaded as deb file from

The Web is full of reports that the iPhone alarms (for all models of device) going off an hour later than usual when switched between Daylight Savings Time and Standard Time. Later, we reported that firstly this problem was found out in Australia, now Europe faces with the same. So even though the iOS clock changed correctly over the weekend, the alarm is still locked to Daylight Savings Time. Apple acknowledged the bug with a promise to fix it with a software update.
On Thursday Apple released an update for the most recent version of its Mac Pro desktop machine. The Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.5 includes fixes for a few bugs: one that resolves an issue preventing the firmware password prompt from being displayed, and the other that smoothes out incidents where the Boot Picker doesn’t show up if the machine is on an Ethernet network without DHCP.

The hole found in iOS 4.1 allows someone to make calls, gain access to the owner’s contact list, and send emails to anyone in said contact list via a passcode locked iPhone.

Where daylight saving time just starts, the iPhone/iPod touch users may see that alarm clocks of their devices go off early or not at all. This is all thanks to a bug in the iOS. According to Gizmodo, 55% of 4,500 users experienced the bug. Most of the users have to return to standard time or this problem is only going to grow if it isn’t corrected soon. Fortunately, the problem only affects “recurring” alarms, not every clock function within iOS.
Famous hacker Geohot is back and today he released the latest iOS 4.1 jailbreak. It is called LimeRa1n and supports iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G with iOS firmwares 4.0-4.1 and beyond. It can also hacktivate your device, so there is no need in phone SIM-cards and other tricks.
This software is still in beta and was updated 3 times in last several hours. So use with caution.
There is Windows version only for now. Geohot plans to release LimeRa1n for Mac and Linux soon. You can Download it here.
Some users report that they have jailbroken their iOS 3.2.2 iPads successfully with limera1n, while others report that they tried, but failed.
Do not forget to backup.
For many users of iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0.2 now there is a hope to perform jailbreak using LimeRa1n and unlock using ultrasn0w. We recommend NOT to do it if you have not saved your SHSH keys. You can try, but if something goes wrong without SHSH keys you'll have to restore to iOS 4.1, and there is no unlock for iOS 4.1 (possibly forever). Just wait for PwnageTool utility.
DevTeam reported that Limera1n uses a different exploit than SHAtter, so they will not release SHAtter utility, they don't want let Apple fix both security holes. However they plan to release PwnageTool using the same exploit.
You can find our LimeRa1n tutorials tutorials:
