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.
Clippy is an iPhone addition from Cydia for copy/paste functionality. It was updated to version 0.96-1. Many issues are resolved and a lot of bugs fixed. Among these are: the ability to copy text from Safari, the ability to copy text from messages or biteSMS and Fix for the Mail application, many different crashes, etc.
Press-and-hold on list items to invoke Clippy on static text
Press-and-hold on the keyboard's "123" button to invoke Clippy on editable text
Tap-pause-and-drag to highlight portions of editable text (except in web pages)
Install from Cydia on a jailbreaked iPhone or iPod Touch.
Here are several photos that show how Clippy works:
DevTeam has announced that iPod Touch 2G is finally jailbreaked.
The raw patch to the firmware that transforms the “tethered” jailbreak into an untethered one was released here but it’s not yet packaged up into the PwnageTool or QuickPwn flows. But other threads there are pulling together tutorials and other tips for those of you anxious to try this out now. For the curious, the hole itself is explained here.
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.
This keyboard as avaliable in Cydia for jailbroken iPhones.
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.
xGPS without vocalization in already available in Cydia for jailbreaked iPhones. The new version 1.2 will be ready in a week or so.
Sounds like one more reason to jailbreak. Watch the video, how this nice app works:
DevTeam updated yellowsn0w to version 0.9.8. It will not work with regular 2.2.1 firmware. If you want 2.2.1, you need modified (!!!) firmware 2.2.1, in which old baseband from firmware 2.2 is preserved.
Version 0.9.8 adds strability and fixes some bugs. So If everything works fine, I reccomend just leave it like it is. For example, I use 0.9.6 and feel happy with 2.2 firmware.
Yes, DevTeam released new version of their software. First of all, please, do NOT use unofficial software from unknows sites (f.e. quickpwm.com). We recommend to download from torrent or official mirors.
We regulary publish latets software and firmware links. Use them or the same ones from DevTeam site.
iPhone 3G + NO UNLOCK: If you do not need unlock, you are using your iPhone with one carrier or you hae factory unlcoked iPhone, just restore or upgrade to 2.2.1 using iTunes and use QuickPwn to jailbreak and add Cydia and Installer.
iPhone 3G + UNLOCK: you need to preserve current baseband software. Preserving the baseband will ensure that you can still use “yellowsn0w” the iPhone 3G unlock application. To upgrade your phone to 2.2.1 and preserve the state of the baseband you need to create a custom .ipsw with PwnageTool. This custom .ipsw will not contain the baseband update but of course will still allow all the cool new stuff from 2.2.1. PwnageTool is only available for Mac OS X.
DevTeam updated yellowsn0w to version 0.9.7 to work with modified (!!!) firmware 2.2.1, in which you preserve old baseband from firmware 2.2.
First of all these icons can be viewed on any iPhone with 2.2 firmware. But to be able to send these icons users need to perform additional actions. There are 4 ways to turn them on and 2 of them are free:
Solution N1 for $5.99:
In AppStore buy and install Touch Dial Emoji. Goto Settings -> Touch Dial -> Enable Smiley icon ON. Launch Touch Dial. Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."
Solution N2 for $0.99:
In AppStore buy and install FrostyPlace. Play with the app for a minute to activate, click on a story, etc. Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."
Solution N3 for Free:
Jailbreak your iPhone. Run Cydia and install Emoji application (iSpazio repository). Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."
This application adds boolean ‘true’ key KeyboardEmojiEverywhere edits in /User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Preferences.plist. You can do it manually if you want.
Solution N3 for Free:
Step 1. Download the vcard.vcf here.
Step 2. Import it to your address book program. If you are using Windows, you may want to do it on iPhone directly. Send the vcard.vcf file to yourself. Open in on iPhone’s Email.app, click the vcf file and import all the contacts.
Step 3. Go into “Settings” > “General” > “Keyboard” > “Japanese Keyboard”. Enable the QWERTY keyboard.
Step 4. In notes or any other program you want. Type “emojia”, “emojii” or “emojiu” to select those icons.
I like Solution N3. It is free and simple. You do not need to play with contacts and etc. But you need to jailbreak an iPhone.
This is one more solution to add copy/paste functionality to iPhone. Couple days ago we wrote about Clippy. This one is called hClipboard. Avaliable via Cydia (bigboss repository) for jailbreaked iPhones.
Here is a quick tutorial how to use it:
After installing just enable it in Settings → General → Keyboard → International.
When the keyboard appears, switch to ℏClipboard by clicking the International button (the Globe) repeatedly. Then hit the Copy button. The entire content of the text field should now appear in the top of the clipboard.
ImaSafari allows iPhone users to turn off image downloading in Safari browser. This is very useful for GRPS, EGDE and 3G connectins. First of all webpages will be downloaded faster. Second - you will save money if you pay for inernet traffic.
Clippy adds copy-paste functionality to iPhone and iPod Touch. It is avaliable in Cydia (iSpazio.net repository) for jailbreaked iPhones. The only limitation is you cannot select text in Safari and copy it to clipboard.
