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 …

iBooksFix2 fixes iBooks issue on jailbroken 5.0.1 devices

ibooks

It’s no surprise that Apple has been combating jailbreaking since it’s inception. More recently, they have done so by making iBooks crash on jailbroken devices. The jailbreakers have been working hard to combat this but it seems that with every new iOS release, old iBooks fixes become useless.

For those jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1 there is a real easy fix for iBooks. First add the repo http://repo.insanelyi.com to Cydia and then search for iBooksFix2 and install it. That’s it! Once you’ve installed the fix and rebooted your device iBooks should work just fine.

*Update* Now there is a working iOS5 iBooks fix via SSH/iFile

One of the downfalls of the current iOS5 tethered jailbreak is that iBooks does not work once jailbroken. @ih8sn0w the creator of sn0wbreeze has teased a YouTube video(see below) of iBooks running a jailbroken iOS5 device.

According to ih8sn0w, the issue is because of how redsn0w and sn0wbreeze performed sandbox patches in the kernel. Sandbox is a security measure that is used to ensure applications such as Safari don’t have access to personal information or system files.

Unfortunately, he goes on to say that he will not be …

GVIntegrated incorporates Google Voice into the default phone application

gv

For those of you who are users of Google Voice, you are probably aware that in the early days, Apple was very reluctant about letting Google publish a GV application on their app store. Even though they finally decided to allow it, the current Google Voice application does not even pale in comparison to the integration of Google Voice into the native phone application that is available on Android phones.

This has all changed now due to a new Cydia tweak for jailbroken devices called GVIntegrated which incorporates Google Voice capabilities right into the native phone application instead of being …

We’ll update this post as more information about the jailbreak becomes available. At this point …

How to re-enable iBooks on a jailbroken iDevice using Comex’ Honeypot

ibookshoneypot

News has been spreading lately that Apple has disabled iBooks on jailbroken iDevices. In actuality, this has been a feature that they implemented a long time ago but for some reason people are just noticing it now. Apple has coded into iBooks a script that tries to run unsigned code on your device. If the code runs, it recognizes that your device is jailbroken and displays the error message below and prevents you from using the app:

Luckily Comex has already created a fix for this issue called Honeypot which re-enables the iBooks application on jailbroken iDevices. Click here to

GridTab for Safari adds a gallery style display of your open tabs

GridTab has been released on Cydia for all Jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches running iOS 4.x. GridTab configures Safari to use a gallery system much like the iPad when navigating through different tabs. For those of you who like using multiple tabs, this will give you a much quicker and easier transition between them.
