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 …

AnyRing ringtone customization app makes it’s way to the official App Store!

anyring

AnyRing, an all time favorite Cydia tweak of mine, has made it's way to the official iTunes App Store. AnyRing allows you to create customized ringtones from your iPod library or even from a YouTube video. If that wasn't enough, there is even a search feature that allows you to search through 4 million free ringtones including the latest Billboard hits!

Since I have an iPhone5 now, I was quite pleased to wake up this morning to an e-mail from @hAcx announcing the iTunes version of AnyRing. Of course, there are a few features that had to be removed …

DreamJB Confirmed Fake [Unfortunately]

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 …

Dream JB untethered iOS6 jailbreak proof to be released today [UPDATED]

dreamthumb

UPDATE: The Dream JB has been confirmed fake. Read more details here.

Well, today is the day we will finally get a better idea of the legitimacy of the Dream JB untethered iOS6 jailbreak which will purportedly work on any iOS6 device. This includes an iPhone5 jailbreak as well as a jailbreak for the latest iPads. Of course we are quite skeptical over the claims being made by the anonymous developer who says he is not affiliated with any of the current dev teams. However, the lack of any sort of progress on an iOS6 jailbreak is more …

My first thoughts of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5 Jailbreak status

i5

Hey everyone! Sorry it's been so long since my last post, these past few months of school have been pretty crazy and I haven't had much free time. However, today I received my iPhone 5 in the mail and just wanted to make a post regarding my thoughts of the device so far. First and foremost, I LOVE the LTE connection. Having only ever used a 2G/3G device personally, it is a breath of fresh air to have such a fast connection on my phone.

Prior to my iPhone 5, I had a 4S on 5.1.1 for jailbreaking, so I …

iPhone 5 Scratch Gate/Scuff Gate

scratch

Yesterday, we told you about the iPhone 5 Screen Gate. With the iPhone 5 being the lightest, thinnest, and sleekest smart-phone out there, users have discovered another  issue in Apple's latest device. This time its being called "Scratch Gate." The  iPhone 5 uses an anodized aluminum back plate instead of the Corning glass used in the 4/4S. Aluminum is a soft material to begin with, making it susceptible to wear and tear from daily use. Having it in your pocket with some change or keys might make the back side of your i5 look like it just came out …

iPhone 5 Screen Gate – [iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5G]

Apple's yearly refresh of iOS products have often come with some issues. Last year arouse issues with Siri and was dubbed 'Siri Gate' by users, before that people were complaining about the iPhone 4 and it's reception issues, dubbing it "'Antenna Gate'. This time around it's 'Screen Gate'.

With the release of the iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5G, users and developers have been cracking down, looking for any problems or hidden features. This time around a game developer (CMA Megacorp) noticed that their was a bug on the iPhone 5. He, along with others have noticed that the screen …

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 …

Here is what the iPhone 5 could look like

iphone5

We are less than 24 hours away from WWDC 2012 and as always before a new iPhone is supposed to be releasing, rumors and allegedly leaked photos of parts from the upcoming iPhone 5 have been surfacing all over the internet. We tend to stay away from reporting news like this since a majority of these rumors tend to end up never coming to fruition. However, over the past month in particular, there have been several leaked photos of iPhone 5 parts and schematics that are quite convincing.

Bryce Hammond from Blackpool Creative has drawn up some high quality renderings …

Apple not ready to release A6 processor could the A5X take its place?

a5x

For some time now there have been rumors floating around of the Apple A6 processor to be released with the iPhone 5 and the iPad 3. Newly revealed information and leaked images now suggest that the A6 Chip is not ready to ship. Could this be due to compatibility issues? Well, I don't know. The newest information available is that there is going to be an Apple A5x Processor.

This is not completely impossible, we see these kinds of incremental hardware updates all the time with apple. When the iPhone 3G was released, soon after, rumors of the iPhone 4 …

In fact, we’d call it the biggest news of the week: jailbreak hacker p0sixninja of Chromic Dev Team has announced that five userland exploits have been discovered for the Apple A5 chip which used in the iPad 2 and is strongly expected to be used in the next generation iPhone.

The news comes from P0sixninja talk at jailbreaking convention MyGreatFest. P0sixninja looked ecstatic when he gave the announcement a few minutes ago, in which it was stated that the Apple A5 chip – used by iPad 2 and the one which will hopefully in …

A look into the future of iPad 2 iPhone 5 and Apple TV with 1080p

Engadget has posted a detailed look into the future of Apple devices and the shift to Qualcomm chipsets in their mobile device line. Have a look below:

The new iPad will feature a dual GSM / CDMA chipset produced by Qualcomm and will mark Apple's shift away from Infineon as its chipset maker to Qualcomm for all of its mobile devices. It's not clear if the chipset being used will be based on the company's EV-DO / HSPA Gobi variety or an entirely new design. Presumably, the strength of the new dual-mode chipset is that it will allow both Verizon …
