The limera1n jailbreak is ready and willing for your 4.1 iOS device--and at this point, we really hope it's not the iPhone 3G that's running that thing.
But here's the kicker of the limera1n jailbreak--it's for Windows only, and it's not expected to work with Apple TV (though the website says it's "technically supported") or come available for Linux and OS X users for quite some time.
Been awhile since we've heard from the jailbreaking lads! Well that may soon change. Word has it, that we could possibly see an iOS 4.1 jailbreak due on 10/10/10 at, you guessed it…10:10:10 AM GMT. How appropriate, no?
We figured it had to happen, what with Apple TV being an iOS device, that after jailbreaking the device, people would want to run apps on it. Steve Jobs alluded to apps and an Apple TV App Store coming someday, and like someday for Apple, the jailbreak community tends to get there first. But there's a catch -- for now.
If there’s one thing hackers love more than anything, it’s a new device to perform their trickery upon -- and this week, the focus appears to be on Apple’s refreshed Apple TV box, which appears to be possibly more hacker-friendly than the original version thanks to its iOS roots.
Apple released the Apple TV IPSW yesterday and the hackers have already jailbroken it. Robbie wonders if Apple might be watching the jailbreaking community to see what features its regular users might like.
Eric Schmidt scares us with his vision of cars. The Retina Display is pitted against other smartphone displays and the Remote app gets updated just in time for the Apple TV.
Plus, we answer your hard-hitting Facebook and Twitter questions.
With new Apple TV boxes en route to their lusting owners at long last, Apple has posted a copy of new firmware for the device which has been confirmed to be a variation of iOS -- and the hacker community has already raised everyone’s excitement level by claiming it can be jailbroken, just like other iOS devices.
We have to admit. We got carried away here during the big Apple TV news cycle filled as it was with rumor, speculation, and innuendo before the big music event (iTV anyone?). But maybe some of that speculation wasn't totally off base?
Apple just wants you to be happy. It wants your hardware to play nicely with your software, your apps to be malware free and your user experience to be as smooth as a baby’s butt.
This burning desire to deliver perfection endears Apple to its fan base. But some App Store developers say that Apple’s quest for quality cramps their creativity, and thus, has resulted in apps that aren’t living up to their full potential.
Last week we took a look at using and troubleshooting Facetime, a new feature included with the iPhone 4 that utilizes the front facing camera. This combination of hardware and software can be used for better or worse, but ultimately it can be a whole lot of fun.
This week's tips will focus on using FaceTime on a plane, in a car, on a bar, and from very far...away. Plus, we've got some bonus FaceTime tips included.
