Dear readers, we have hit that time once again in the jailbreak cycle when we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief and raise a glass to the jailbreak producers while we overload their servers attempting to download the new and shiny utility that will provide our devices with freedom. Yes, that is right, I am indeed talking about downloading Absinthe 2.0, the latest version of the Chronic Dev Team tool that brings an untethered jailbreak to the majority of our iOS 5.1.1 devices.
Over the past few weeks, security experts have warned Mac users of a new virus making its rounds called the “Flashback trojan“. Flashback is allegedly on over 600,000 Macs, which is roughly 1-percent of the 45 million out there. Flashback exploits a pair of vulnerabilities in older versions of Java. Apple may have patched it, but it is still out there and running on many machines.
How do you know if you are infected? F-Secure has a few Terminal commands to check your machine. For the many who are not adept at keeping their Java updates fresh, terminal commands are going to be even more foreign. The app runs the same checks as you would in Terminal, but automates it for you.
Unlock 4 Team have just release of an updated version of their latest software. This new update will unlock/jailbreak iPhone 4/3GS ios 5.0.1. Unmatched by any other solution.
Unlock 4 Team have just released the first and only software capable of jailbreaking and unlocking the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS up to the very latest ios 5.0.1.
latest ios 5.0.1 from Apple, have produced a very simple, user friendly application which will enable any iPhone owner to unlock/jailbreak iPhone 3GS/4 ios 5.0.1.
Unlock 4 Team formed in early 2010, and have successfully jailbroken and unlocked over 51000 iPhones worldwide. This is unparallelled by any other service in the industry. They have achieved this by combining a user friendly solution with a fantastic customer service department, 24/7 support and bonus features.
Finally was released the update of Absinthe, the tool used for the jailbreak of A5 devices (iPad 2 and iPhone 4S) on iOS 5.0.1, has just been updated to version 0.4.
We’ve been mightily impressed with this particular jailbreak, perhaps more so than those released previously. Not just because it managed to crack every device currently running Apple’s iOS 5.0.1, but it has been well-maintained ever since, with constant updates and maintenance releases ensuring the smoothest possible jailbreaking experience moving forward.
Unlike the apparent panic displayed by Apple in the run-up to the original iOS 5 release, which saw an near-unprecedented number of betas seeded to members of the fruit company’s developer program, there have been comparatively few reports of what is to be expected with its first major revision – iOS 5.1.
iPhone 4S, successor of iPhone 4 was launched back in October 2011, despite it was similar in design to iPhone 4 it came with radical internal hardware changes like running latest Apple A5 processor, which also powers Apple’s second generation tablet, iPad 2. Unfortunately getting first untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S turned out difficult task as Limera1n bootrom exploit found in A4 devices was fixed in iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Even after all the odds iPhone hackers have once again proved themselves by releasing first iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak Absinthe.
Few days ago we told you that the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package was released to Jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1 firmware Untethered. We even shared with you a complete how to guide on Jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad Untethered using the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package. One problem that I know a lot of you faced after Jailbreaking Untethered with Corona 5.0.1 Untether, however, was that certain Cydia tweaks would not function correctly. This is because the iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak effected a very crucial extension library called launchctl that numerous Cydia tweaks and applications rely on.
Corona 5.0.1 Untether is a Cydia package to Jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1 firmware Untethered. The unique thing about the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Jailbreak is that it is the first Jailbreak based off of simply installing a Cydia package. Now, the reason you would want to use the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package is if you are currently Jailbroken on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware tethered and do not want to have to use a Jailbreaking tool like RedSn0w o.9.1ob1 or PwnageTool 5.0.1 to Re-Jailbreak your iOS Device. Corona 5.0.1 Untether supports all iOS devices that can run the iOS 5.0.1 firmware, except the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
A jailbreak tool recently unleashed on Cydia can “untether” your existing (tethered) iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak, which means that you won’t have to do a restore, and that you won’t lose anything important, such as photos, apps, etc.
If you have been following us, we informed you that the next-generation iPad may include an A5X dual core chip instead of an A6 quad-core. The post we made included the photo of the iPad 3 logic board that showcased the A5X processor. Here it is again for those of you who missed that post. Continued after the break!
The A4 chip of the original iPad was called S5L8930X, while the A5 chip of the iPad 2 was called S5L8940X, and the A5X chip is named as S5L8945X. If we compare the labeling between A4 and A5, the jump was of 10, while it is only 5 between A5 and A5X. This would mean a half-way upgrade, meaning a chip with improved graphics but still a dual-core processor.
A few hours ago, we posted about a leaked image related to the upcoming iPad 3 indicating tapered edges and an 8-megapixel camera. Today, we have more news for you. WeiPhone, a Chinese site, has a forum post with an image which shows an “A5X” system-on-a-chip on the iPad 3′s logic board. All the rumors till now have indicated towards an A6 quad-core processor but if assumption comes true, the fruit company would offer an upgraded package labelled with the “A5X” name. Details after the slide!
