VERY Old News, But Still Exciting!

Hmm this rock that I’ve been living under is starting to become a burden. It seems that in the midst of the hectic week the jailbreak that we’ve been waiting for for the last few months has been released! Thats right iOS 5.0.1 can now be jailbroken on A5 devices (iPhone 4S & iPad 2) using Absinthe. Head on over to the greenpois0n blog to get your hands on it!

Create Settings Shortcuts Without Jailbreak On iOS

I’ve just come across an excellent quick tutorial on DevChimp on how to install a tweak on your iOS device which will allow you quick access to your favourite settings straight from your home screen! I was under the impression that Apple had released a patch to stop this working but I must have been mistaken as it’s working perfectly for me. Go and check it out.

Kickstarter – TidyTilt, The Smarter Cover For Your iPhone

TidyTilt is a Kickstarter project by design students Zahra Tashakorinia & Derek Tarnow that aims to be a solution to the eternal problem of earbud tangling that plagues us all. TidyTilt looks and functions much like the iPad 2’s Smart Cover, it attaches to a thin metal stip that adheres to the back of your iPhone and can be wrapped up just like the Smart Cover to act as a prop for your iPhone, or to secure your earbuds in place tidily with no worry of tangling. The video on the Kickstarter page also shows it being used to attach the iPhone or the headphones to the body of your Mac, to a whiteboard, or just about anything magnetic you can get your hands on. They come in a variety of 4 colours (sadly no orange to match my iPad) and start at just $19 (add $10 for international shipping) which converts to £18 if you’re in the UK, a bargin if you ask me! They’ve surpassed their funding goal by over $40,000 (it’s gone up over $200 while I’ve been writing this post!) but that’s no reason not to get yourself one, I can’t wait for mine!

EDIT: This project has been successfully funded! Stay tuned for a review of the product when it arrives in the coming months!

iPhone 4S/iPad 2 5.0.1 Jailbreak (Maybe) Within The Week!

According to iOS hacker pod2g’s Twitter stream we could be a matter of days away from having our A5 powered devices (iPhone 4S & iPad 2) jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1! He appears to have made a big leap forward with Apple’s newest processor, here’s hoping everything goes well and that come next Monday we’ll all be tweaking SBSettings back to just how we like it!
