Time to bite the forbidden Apple(iOS5)

October 4, 2011 Leave a comment

So, its 4th of July err 4th October 2o11. Well isn’t it the same thing for Apple fanboys out there.

iPhone Event

4/10/11 – Apple is holding media event at Infinite Loop, Cupertino, CA. The event starts at 10:00 am Pacific Time. Let’s talk iPhone.

Today, we would experience the World’s most advanced phone & OS – the iPhone4S(or 5) & iOS5, which is supposedly a giant leap forward from the existing World’s most advanced phone & OS the iPhone4 & the iOS4.

Every OS that rolls out of the Apple Inc. the most advanced OS in the market? Not really, if we look back at the earlier versions of iOS they lacked basic functionality like copy-paste.

So what is it about them that makes it the World’s most advanced OS be it mobiles/tablets(iOS) or the Macs(OS X). Well lets see it for ourselves because I believe in facts.

Well! That says it all, doesn’t it? I use every platform that is available in the market today from iOS, Android, BBOS, WebOS, bada, Symbian to WP7 so don’t consider me as an Apple fanboy.

I won’t deny, I love their products and simplicity but at the same time I pin point problems like ‘Death Grip’, Notification system, Micro-sim etc. I have always been an unbiased, critical blogger and iOS5 won’t change it for me.

Who are we kidding, we all know until we Jailbreak our iOS device’s they are not worth it. Right now out of all the devices I own, iPhone4 is my primary phone simply because of plethora of apps (I mean quality apps from the App store, not like malicious junk in the Android Market). So the big question is will the iPhone4 owners like me upgrade to iPhone5 when they can get the iOS5 on their existing device. Again lets dig into some facts.

For the past 6 months we have seen around 100 types of speculated iPhone5’s. From a larger screen to ipad-like back to LTE etc. This isn’t the first time the world has gone mental on how the next iPhone’s gonna look like. Before the next generation of iPhone is released today let’s have a look at some of the fake one’s.

Hence proved, you can run..you can hide..but you cant escape the Apple Inc.

Lastly, how it all started. The journey from iPhone4 to iPhone5.

The NEW APPLE

September 2, 2010 1 comment

Apple was on a spree yesterday when it launched the new – iPOD Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, Apple TV, iTunes 10. The only problem is that no matter how many new products they launch or updates they make Steve Jobs still wears the Black Tshirt he has been wearing since Apple incorporated. Mr.Jobs, If you can spend so much money on your products then why not spend a few $ for a new Tshirt 😐

Well lets just leave Mr.Jobs at the moment and see how the new products look like –

Now that you have had a glimpse of all of them, lets see them each and know their Tech-Specs.

1) Ipod Touch –

K.I.S.S. Guide To Jailbreaking – Iphone/Ipod Touch

I have got so many request on twitter on how to jailbreak an Iphone or Ipod Touch that now instead of mailing each one of you I am publishing the guide to jailbreaking. As its the K.I.S.S. guide to jailbreaking I will KEEP IT SHORT & SIMPLE :

First things First :

1)You should have the latest version of Itunes & .Net Framework 2.0 installed.

2) If these two are applications are already installed then install f0recast.

3)Once f0recast is installed attach your Iphone/Ipod Touch to the PC and run f0recast.

4) f0recast will check your iPods and iPhones to determine whether it is tethered, or unlockable and it will also specify the tool which will be needed to jaibreak your device.

5)After f0recast specifies which tool to use to jailbreak your device go ahead and download it. It can be any of the following tool : blackra1n Pwnage Tool redsn0w sn0wbreeze

6) I would suggest you to use redsn0w if you use Windows PC and Pwnage Tool for MAC.

7)Now its time to decide which firmware do you want to upgrade to latest being 3.1.3( prefer 3.1.2 at the moment) for the list of firmwares and download links visit here – Firmwares

8)Once you have downloaded the Firmware from here, open redsn0w and follow these steps –

  • Step 1: You will need to first update/restore to the original iPhone OS firmware 3.1.2 on your iPhone/iPod touch by using the latest version of iTunes.
  • Step 2: In redsn0w browse to the Original iPhone OS 3.1.2 .ipsw file for your iPhone/iPod touch.
  • Step 3: redsn0w will now verify to see if the .ipsw is valid, and will then automatically patch the original file.
  • Step 4: iPhone 2G users can select both “Install Cydia” and “Unlock” options. iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPod touch users should only check on “Install Cydia” to jailbreak.
  • Step 5: Now make sure your device is both OFF and PLUGGED IN to the computer before you click “Next”.
  • Step 5 Continued: At this stage you will be presented with a screen where you will have to quickly hold “Power” button and then while holding the “Power” button, you will now have to hold “Home” button too. Now after few seconds release “Power” button but keep holding “Home” button until installation begins.
  • Step 6: Sit back and enjoy while redsn0w will do all the rest for you. Once done, your iPhone/iPod touch will restart automatically and you will find it jailbroken with iPhone firmware version 3.1.2.

PS: If you still think you don’t want to go ahead and do it yourself then you are most welcome to get it done for free by contacting me – NIKHIL CHAWLA
