unlock

Ultrasn0w 1.2.8 has just been released for compatibility with iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1. Once again, this update only adds 6.1 compatibility, it does not add compatibility for any of the newer baseband revisions. If you have an iPhone 4, this will only work if you have the 01.59.00 baseband. If you have an iPhone 3Gs, it will work on any of these basebands: 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00. If you have a 3Gs that has a newer baseband, you can install the 06.15.00 iPad baseband and then downgrade from 06.15.00 to 05.13.04 using Redsn0w.

iPhone 5 ScreenExtender tweak forces all apps to use full screen

i5

With the iPhone 5 having a larger screen size than it's predecessors, there are still plenty of apps out there which have not been updated to accomodate the larger size of the screen. A new iPhone 5 ScreenExtender tweak has been released to solve just that issue. All you have to do is download the free app from Cydia and it will force any of your older apps to fill the screen, even if they were not natively designed to do so. Once your device has rebooted, simply go into the Settings app and scroll down to ScreenExtender. Enable it …

NowNow uses activator gestures to invoke Google Now – Siri alternative

gnow

A friend of mine jailbroke his iPhone 4 for the first time yesterday. Being the curious person he is, he started watching YouTube videos about jailbreak tweaks to see what he wanted to install. Not surprisingly, he came across a video detailing a Siri port. He asked me if it would work, and having heard plenty of horror stories about instability and security issues, I advised him to steer clear of any Siri ports. Instead, I started looking for Siri alternatives for him and came across NowNow. NowNow is a very simple jailbreak tweak that lets you assign an Activator …

Pod2g and Planetbeing make some progress on the iOS6 jailbreak

ios6

We don't hear much in the way of jailbreak news these days, but as we pointed out earlier this month, there is definitely still progress going on behind the scenes. Last night, Planetbeing made a vague post about making progress with Pod2g. On what they had made progress on was not initially clear, but we hoped that it was something to do with the upcoming jailbreak.

But then early this morning, Pod2g replied to the tweet confirming that it was, in fact, the jailbreak that they had made progress on. Apparently the duo discovered 2 new vulnerabilities that will …

The iPhone5 has already been jailbroken by chpwn!

i5

Well, this morning the new Apple iPhone 5 went on sale and not even 24 hours later, @chpwn has already managed to jailbreak his! Of course A4 and lower devices can already jailbreak on iOS6, but A5 and A5X devices such as the iPhone4S, iPad3 and now iPhone5 are not susceptible to the limera1n exploit which allows for the tethered iOS6 jailbreak. This means that chpwn has found a new exploit, likely in the iOS6 firmware, which has enabled him to jailbreak the iPhone5.

This is great news and very unexpected, it can take weeks or even months …

How to jailbreak iOS6 beta 2 with Redsn0w 0.9.13dev2

jailbroken

Today, Apple released iOS6 beta 2 to developers. For those developers who wish to update their 3rd party apps and tweaks to be compatible with iOS6 once it is released publicly, this tutorial will walk you through jailbreaking iOS6 beta 2 with Redsn0w. Since Redsn0w has not yet been updated to support the new beta release, you will need to use Redsn0w 0.9.13dev2 which was released to perform a tethered jailbreak on beta 1 of iOS6. You will also need an iOS6 beta 1 firmware file since Redsn0w does not recognize the beta 2 firmware yet.

Unfold lockscreen modification tweak review (Cydia)

unfold

Last week, a free lockscreen modification tweak was released by dev @_Maxner_ which modifies your lockscreen behavior. Unfold is a straight-forward lockscreen enhancement tweak. Once installed, instead of sliding to unlock your device(boring!), you get this smooth 3D unfold animation that makes it appear as though you are drawing a curtain on your device. Another great thing about this tweak is that it works in conjunction with other lockscreen modifications so you don't have to sacrifice your favorite LS. There is nothing to configure, just install it and you're good to go! Check out my review/demo of this tweak …

Signal Booster is a quick one-touch solution to optimize your iPhone signal

signalbooster

A new app made it's way to the Cydia store this week. Signal Booster is a one-touch app that will allow you to optimize your devices cellular signal by resetting the connection. The caveat is that the app costs $0.99 and all it does is toggle Airplane Mode on and off for you automatically. That being said, Signal Booster is a bit faster than the manual method, so if you have $0.99 to spare, you might be interested in this app.

A few of our users have been having trouble downloading the Rocky Racoon 1.0-1 package from Cydia. You should be able to see the package by simply loading Cydia and refreshing changes since the package is on a default repo. However, if you are having problems seeing the package, you can download the deb file below for manual installation. If you have iFile, all you need to do is transfer the deb to any folder on your device(make it something easy to remember like var/mobile/Documents). Then in iFile open the deb with "Installer."
