As you may know, jailbreaking is the best way to "hack" your iPhone or iPad to get the features and apps you want that Apple and the App Store won't provide. The latest jailbreak tool to hit the streets is called Absinthe 2.0 and it allows any iOS 5.1.1 device to be jailbroken, including the latest iPad. Read on to find out how to take the plunge and easily jailbreak your iOS device.
It’s that time of the week again when we kick back with (or without) a cold one and reflect on the days past. The internet managed to score a victory this week by smacking down the SOPA/PIPA bills and iPhone 4S/iPad 2 users also have reason to cheer as they use a new untethered jailbreak to free their devices from some of Apple’s draconian restrictions. So hey, pretty good week, right? Let’s read on and find out what else is happening for this fabulous Friday, January 20, 2012.
Jailbreaking can bring a ton of fresh features to your iOS device. Apparently, it can also take a few away. According to a number of reports, devices that have been jailbroken using Greenpois0n, have lost the ability to read the books they purchased via the iBookstore.
With its promise of bringing personal hot spot support to the iPhone and returning the orientation switch to the iPad, there's good reason for people to be excited about the impending release of iOS 4.3. For those of us who refuse to wait for Apple to provide our iOS devices with additional functionality, the untethered Greenpois0n jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 is now available for immediate download. Fight the power!
There’s been a flurry of activity on the iOS jailbreak scene over the last week, but we Mac users have had to sit on the sidelines for most of it, since both the Limera1n and GreenPois0n tools were Windows-only -- but that’s changing.
