dreamthumb

We posted earlier today about a skeptical but possible untethered jailbreak for all iOS 6 iDevices, including the iPhone 5, iPad Mini + others. The DreamJB team have uploaded a youtube video (shown below) which has been confirmed fake by many users within the Jailbreak community including MuscleNerd. The video is one of the most, if not THE most, well done fakes we have ever seen, but even the best fake still has some discrepancies. Now, other than the fact that the DreamJB "developer" has already admitted that this was nothing more than a "social experiment," here are some …

How to downgrade GSM iPhone from 4.3.4/4.3.5 to 4.3.3 [Tutorial]

downgrade

I will begin this tutorial the same way I began the Verizon iPhone4 Downgrade tutorial by saying that you MUST have your 4.3.3 SHSH key saved in order to downgrade from 4.3.4 or 4.3.5. This tutorial will not work if you do not have your SHSH key. If you do not know what an SHSH key is then you most likely do not have it saved. You can check out our What is an SHSH file post.

Step 1: Create a custom 4.3.3 firmware file using either Pwnage Tool 4.3.3.1(OSX) or Sn0wbreeze 2.7.3(Win). This is the firmware …

AT&T May Be Cracking Down on MyWi Internet Tethering

AT&T MyWi Tethering TXT

ModMyi have claimed to have had tips from users saying they are receiving notices fro AT&T regarding tethering. These users have been using MyWi for tethering, and are grandfathered into AT&T's old unlimited iPhone data plan.

UPDATE: Based on the comments ModMyi have been receiving on their announcement, It now looks as though AT&T are basing these messages solely on users with high usage. As it turns out, MyWi shows up as 0 tethered bytes:

For one user, the notices began as a simple text message:

AT&T Free Msg: Did you know tethering your Smartphone to a computer requires a …

Apple Approachs Federal Government in order to Stop iPhone Jailbreaking

Apple has approached the federal government to help stop hackers from jailbreaking the iPhone, reports NBC.

A spokesperson from Apple told the US Copyright Office that "Current jailbreak technologies now in widespread use utilize unauthorized modifications to the copyrighted bootloader and operating system, resulting in the infringement of the copyrights in those programs".
