For some gamers, there’s no school like the old school. Thanks to the jailbreaking community and the Bluetooth connectivity of Nintendo’s Wii Controller, you can combine the gaming greatness of the 1990s with the high-tech power of Apple’s iPad. Let’s get started!
When we first told you about it this past August, the iControlPad had us pretty excited. Not much has changed since then, other than the fact that handcrafted smartphone gaming peripheral is finally available for sale and is expected to start shipping sometime this month. Before you ask, yes, we've already ordered ours.
If you're an Apple purist, you might want to consider skipping this post for fear of suffering permanent emotional scarring, as it seems that an intrepid member of the iOS Jailbreaking community has figured out a way to shoehorn Windows Phone 7's interface onto an iPod touch. The Horror. The Horror.
One of the great things about Apple’s second-generation Apple TV is that the software running it is based on the same iOS used in the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad -- meaning that jailbreaking the box and installing cool stuff is only a few clicks away. If you think that requires a computer science degree, think again.
If you've ever jailbroken an iOS device, there's little doubt that you've already paid a visit to the Cydia App Store. Full of invaluable iOS application that for one reason or another didn't make it into the iTunes App Store, Jay Freeman's Cydia has always been a one-stop shop to make your jailbreaking efforts worth while. Now, thanks to a few key updates to Cydia, it appears that the service will become easier to use than ever.
Apple’s second-generation Apple TV continues to expand its iOS-based horizons, thanks to enterprising developers who don’t have Cupertino addresses. The latest is XBMC, the open source media player’s first ARM-based release and a full port of the software.
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.
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?
