iPhone 5 Intro Date?

Rumor has it that Steve Jobs might talk about the iPhone 5 on June 6th, the worldwide developers conference. The iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 were all launched at previous WWDCs. So releasing the iPhone 5 around the same time would keep to the same schedule.

But people are also saying that the iPhone 5 release has been pushed to September because the phone is not yet ready or they are still changing things up with it. Other say its because the Verizon iPhone 4 was just released in February, and a fresh iPhone 5 coming just four months later may anger millions of Verizon iPhone buyers.

Tell me what you think. Do you think it will be released at WWDC, or do you think it will have to wait for a couple more months, and why?

4.3.1 Jailbreak

4.3.1 was just released. Now there is a (tethered) jailbreak for it. This does not work for iPad 2's and you need a mac.

Step 1: Download PwnageTool bundle (includes Universal Ramdisk Fixer) for your version of iOS device. Extract the .zip folder, in there you will find a .bundle file, for this guide, we are using iPhone 4 bundle iPhone3,1_4.3.1_8G4.bundle. Move this file to your desktop.
Step 2: Download PwnageTool 4.2 and copy it to /Applications directory. Right click, and then click on “Show Package Contents”Step 3: Navigate to Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles/ and paste iPhone3,1_4.3.1_8G4.bundle file in this location.
Step 4: Download Universal Ramdisk Fixer (part of the PwnageTool bundle package that you downloaded in Step 1 above) and install it. This is important because Ramdisk in the current version of PwnageTool is broken. This Universal Ramdisk Fixer basically patches it correctly for iOS 4.3.1 firmware.
Step 5: Download iOS 4.3.1 firmware. Move this file to your desktop.
Step 6: Start PwnageTool in “Expert mode” and select your device
Step 7: Browse for iOS 4.3.1 firmware for your device
Step 8: Now select “Build” to start creating custom 4.3.1 firmware file
Step 9: PwnageTool will now create the custom .ipsw file for your iPhone which will be jailbroken.
Step 10: Now follow these steps to enter DFU mode:

Hold Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds
Now release the Power button but continue holding the Home button for 10 more seconds
You device should now be in DFU mode
 

Step 11: Start iTunes, click on your iOS device icon from the sidebar in iTunes. Now press and hold left “option” (alt) button on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update” or “Check for Update”) button in the iTunes and then release option.
Step 12: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps. Be patient at this stage and don’t do anything silly. Just wait while iTunes installs the new firmware 4.3.1 on your iOS device. Your iOS device screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, your iOS device will be jailbroken on iOS 4.3.1.


Last but not the least, since there is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 yet, we will have to boot it into a tethered jailbroken state. To do this, we will make use of a utility named “tetheredboot” as shown in the steps below.
Step 13: Download tetheredboot.zip utility for Mac OS X and extract the .zip file.
Step 14: First, we will need two files from the custom iOS 4.3.1 firmware namely: kernelcache.release.n90 and iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu. To do this, make a copy of your custom iOS 4.3.1 file that you created above, change the extension of this file from .ipsw to .zip, and then extract this .zip file.
Now copy kernelcache.release.n90 file, and then copy iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu files which are found under /Firmware/dfu/.
Move all these files, and tetheredboot utility to a new folder named “tetheredboot” on the desktop.

Step 15: Turn off your iOS device, and start Terminal on OS X and run the following commands:
sudo -s
enter your administrator password, then:
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n90
You will have to of course replace “TaimurAsad” with the name of the directory on your computer.
now press enter.
NOTE: If the above fails, try ‘tetheredboot -i ibss -k kernel’ instead of ‘tetheredboot ibss kernel’:
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot –i
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu -k
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n90
Tip: Simply drag and drop in Terminal – tetheredboot file, then iBSS file and then kernelcache.release file.

You should now see some code running in the Terminal window, at some point, it will ask you to enter DFU mode. Now follow the following steps to enter DFU mode:
  • Hold Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds
  • Now release the Power button but continue holding the Home button for 10 more seconds
  • You device should now be in DFU mode
Now wait for your device to boot, Terminal at this point will be showing “Exiting libpois0n” message. After a short while, your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will be booted in a jailbroken mode!

Enjoy your jailbroken i-item, and be sure to follow and comment.

5 Snow Leopard Tricks/Tips

Hello, here are some cool things you might not know you could do with your computer.

1. Holding down command then pressing the spacebar will open up spotlight. you can begin typing in the name of a document, application, music file...and spotlight will give you a list of files that match what you typed in. It also has a "Top Hit" for the most recent item that was opened that matches what you typed. This can be used to open applications without having to find them in the applications stack.

2. If you click on a stack (the folders on your dock) and start typing the name of a document or application, it will be highlighted. For example, in my applications stack if I type "I" then "iCal" gets highlighted, if I continue on and type "it" then "iTunes" gets highlighted. When I press return iTunes opens.

3. If you hold the "Option" key down while clicking on the dock, or your desktop, the open app gets hidden, and the icon dims. The windows will be minimized but will not appear beside the trash. To re-open the app simply click on the dimmed icon. This is really handy when you need to minimize a lot of windows but don't want the dock to become full, or you want to minimize the windows but don't like seeing the preview of the minimized windows in the dock.

4. You can also make minimized windows minimize into the applications icon on the dock instead of going beside the trashcan so you dont need to always hide them. Open system preferences (command+space bar, type "system pref", click enter) navigate to "Dock" (on my computer it was third from the left, top row) then check "Minimize windows into application icon" exit system preferences and minimize a window to try it out.

5. There is a nice also auto correct feature that you can use to automatically change text that you continually mess up, but it only works in certain apps like Mail, iChat and TextEdit. Goto system preferences, Language and Text (top, 5th from the left), Text (second tab) then press + to make your own substitutions.

Thats all for now, these are just some of the ones that I use, in the order of importance to me.
I will make another post with more soon.
