[News] iOS 6 Rumoured Jailbreak Release

20121221-185232.jpg
At a time when millions of iOS 6 users have been eagerly waiting for an untethered jailbreak for months now, an unknown hacker by the name of “Dream JB” has created a buzz among the jailbreak community by claiming that he will release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 Dec. 22. The self-proclaimed hacker has even said that his untethered exploit will be compatible with newer iOS devices such as iPhone 5, iPad Mini, iPad 4 and the new iPod touch.

On 17th December 2012, the Dream JB (Dream Jailbreak) website was updated with a post outlining the progress of the claimed iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5. The hacker said that he would upload a video Wednesday, proving that the untethered jailbreak he created was real. Here’s what the post said:
“Proof will be posted both here and on my Twitter account on Wednesday. As far as the video that will be uploaded, it will be a single-take shot of the entire jailbreak process, including a restart and usage of the device to prove it is untethered. It will be uploaded as raw video straight from my camera to YouTube. So no edits in any form. Thank you all for your patience and support. Also, with the extremely high volume of tweets and over 4500 emails, I will try to address the public as I can. I ask that you read the FAQ before contacting me by email. I will update the FAQ for you all tomorrow morning. I’ve also moved past website updates to the bottom of the page. Goodnight everyone!

I should note that all announcements are made in EST time zone. As of now it’s 8:11 PM EST, proof should be out before 8 PM EST tomorrow.”

According to the hacker, the new iOS 6 and 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak will support devices including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (2nd generation and beyond), iPad Mini and iPod touch (4th generation and beyond).

As per the FAQ page provided by the Dream JB website, the jailbreak will be a one-click process and will differ from the previous jailbreak methods using “Webkit exploit” and “userland exploit.” The hacker clearly stated that “any device that normally supports iOS 6.0/6.0.1 is supported by the jailbreak,” meaning A6 devices are included.

Meanwhile, Dream JB’s claims regarding the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak have raised a lot of skepticisms around the tech world, with prominent jailbreak developers of the iPhone Dev Team and the Chronic Dev Team denouncing it as yet another elaborate gambit of a hoaxer.

While well-known iOS hacker MuscleNerd has put Dream Jailbreak on his list of “fake” jailbreaks, another renowned jailbreak developer Joshua Hill aka @p0sixninja criticized it saying “they’re all fake.”

No matter how many times we say “They’re all fake” no one ever listens….. *sigh*

iOS hacker iH8sn0w, on the other hand, too to his Twitter account saying: “Never trust anyone who has never released anything credible in the past.”

He further urged the users to be very careful about fake jailbreak websites. “Don’t get your hopes up,” he tweeted, “But also don’t just download anything.. it seems like a very smart thing to do to distribute a new virus.”

Jeff Benjamin of iDownloadBlog said in a post Tuesday that any claim about an iOS jailbreak that lacked word from respectable members of the Chronic Dev Team or the iPhone Dev Team was “almost always fake.”

“Suppose an iPhone 5 jailbreak does drop on the 22nd, and it does work? If so, I will happily apologize to the man behind the Dream JB, and create a post outlining how wrong I was for lumping his project in with all of the other fakes that we’ve seen over the years,” Benjamin wrote.

“This guy claims that he’s a ‘one man army,’ which is fine. But explain to me why it took a literal Dream Team of talented hackers to orchestrate the last Absinthe jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1?” he added.

Dream JB describes himself:

“My identity will remain an obscurity. I am not affiliated with any known dev team. This project is individual and solely run by me alone. I am here to show the world that the source of an exploit or jailbreak can be from outside the norm.”

According to him, he is a university student, currently in the middle of writing his final exams. However, he says although he has his priorities, he does his best “to keep you all in the loop with the timeline of events and the release.”

[Guide] Convert Any iPhone or iPod game to 2x without changing graphics

The iPad can run iPhone apps in compatibility mode, and we all know Apple implemented this feature to allow iPad owners to access a huge catlogue of apps on day one. The fact that the iPad App Store got to more than 90,000 apps in a few months is a different story. What is not great about iPhone compatibility mode is that, when an iPhone app is blown up to, the graphics become fuzzy. Even if you’ve installed on your iPad an app that’s got Retina Display-ready graphics on the iPhone, you’ll get the pixelated graphics.
We at Technologic101 found a great Tweak in the Hackmyiphone and insanelyi repo for FREE.

RetinaPad, a new Cydia tweak by Ryan Petrich, works great with basically any app or game that’s got Retina graphics. Once installed, you’ll have to choose the iPhone apps that you’d like to run with the new 2x mode. Fire up the app, tap on 2x and you’ll notice that the iPad will display clean graphics without pixelation. If the iPhone app has been updated for the Retina Display, it most likely works with RetinaPad out of the box. It’s really neat.There is apparently another Tweak called Fullforse which does the same thing but costs 2$.

[Guide] How To Close All Running Apps With Just A Swipe

Many of us waste time in closing running apps everyday. Double-Clicking Home Button, Pressing Icons and then Closing Them takes a lot of time if you have a lot of apps running.

So, I present a solution to all those people who waste their time in closing these apps or people who have a broken home button.

The name of the Tweak is SwipeAway and is available in the ModMyi repository(http//:apt.modmyi.com/). BTW ModMyi Repo is added in your Cydia by default.

As easily understood by the name of tweak, SwipeAway is a new app for jailbroken iOS devices that allows you to close all applications running in the background with a simple swipe gesture.

SwipeAway closes all applications running in the background on your iPhone in just couple of seconds. How to do it? Simply select a specific activation gesture between those made available in Settings: Swipe up or down, to close all applications.

SwipeAway also closes the apps backgrounded by BackGrounder.

So,give it a try and keep swinging.

[Tutorial] How To Install Windows 8 Pro For Free (100% working)

Disclaimer: First of all,this is only recommended for people who want try Windows 8 for before actually buying it.We call know that Windows 8 has some big issues with what developers can use on it and where they can use it i.e. dev. software only runs on x64.So,people should check out exactly what they want before they purchase it.That’s what we think..Please don not pirate Microsoft software just to save money.Microsoft has worked really hard on this project so respect that and use original software.

With that out of the way,let’s dig into the tutorial part of this article!

We’ve been using Windows 8 for quite some now and I must say,atleast ‘I’ and impressed.Yes,’impressed’ but not ‘blown away’.
There is no doubt that Windows 8 is gonna make a good tablet OS but that’s not what Microsoft is know for right? They’re known for their desktop OS i.e Windows.Now,agreed that they are adapting and trying to make a mark in this tablet and smartphone hungry world but to be honest,I loved Windows 7 and am a little disappointed that Windows 8 isn’t that big an upgrade (keeping only PCs in mind).

But hey! that still does not mean I’m not gonna install it? And I’m sure you wanna install it too.So,let’s get started with the things you’ll need while and before installing:

  • A compatible system (check the requirements here)
  • Windows 8 .iso file (only download the one you want)
  • Windows 8 Activator (will be used in the end) -> Download this and keep it ready on another USB or partition on your computer.
  • uTorrent (it’s used to download torrent files.You can use any other torrent client as well.) ->
  • WinRar (to unarchive the .tgz activator file) -> Download this on Windows 8 using IE.
  • A 4 GB or more USB drive or a single-layered DVD (I suggest using a DVD)
  • Basic knowledge of how one boots into a USB/DVD via your BIOS
  • 1-2 hours and loads of  patience

Once that’s sorted out,just follow along.

Installation

  1. Backup your data on your current OS.
  2. Use this tutorial to make a bootable USB/DVD for Windows 8 using the .iso you downloaded earlier.
  3. Insert the USB/DVD and reboot your system.
  4. Enter your BIOS settings/boot menu(i suggest getting into your boot menu).Since every BIOS has a different method of doing so,you can look up the hotkey for your specific BIOS/boot menu in the motherboard/laptop’s manual or use Google.Once,you are into your BIOS/boot menu,select USB for your USB drive or select DVD-ROM if you’re using a DVD.
  5. Once you do that,the Windows 8 installation will start and it’ll ask you for a CD key.Use this XKY4K-2NRWR-8F6P2-448RF-CRYQH. After that just follow installation wizard and make sue you read everything properly while doing so.Once,you’re at the ‘Windows update’ section,turn them OFF completely to avoid any issues later on.Also,make sure you select the right partition to install Windows 8 on to avoid any data loss.
  6. When the wizard finishes installing,it’ll reboot your system and boot it up into the Windows 8 setup wizard where it’ll ask for you to setup accounts and what not.It is pretty self-explanatory so you shouldn’t have any problem there.If you do,you can always contact us or comment below.
  7. After you’ve gone through with the account setup,your computer should restart and boot back into Windows 8.

Now,right now you’ll have a working Windows 8 OS but it’ll not be activated i.e. you wont be able to access the personalization section and also wont be able to install Microsoft Office 13.To rectify that,follow the instructions below or feel free to close your browser and enjoy Windows 8.But,why would anyone do that right?

Activation

  1. Open up the Activator you downloaded earlier using WinRar and extract it on your desktop.
  2. In the extracted files,run ‘Windows 8 Pro Final Activator.exe’ as admin and let it do it’s thing.
  3. Once that’t done,reboot your system.
  4. That’s it! Your Windows 8 copy should be activated and fully functional.

For Dual Booting with any other version of Windows

The procedure remains the same – Just follow the same instructions and the Windows 8 bootloader will handle the rest.

Let us know in the comments section if you faced any problems or did it work for you flawlessly.

[Guide] Take Gaming To The Next Level On your iPod,iPhone or iPad

All of us are pretty much satisfied with the gaming experience on our iDevices.Games like Temple Run, Angry Birds, Subway Surfer and others have made having iDevices enjoyable.Still, the Gaming on iPods and iPads is still not comparable to our good old PCs.

Quake 3 is one of the most popular first person shooters in the world. It kind of revolutionized FPS games. And now it has made its way to jailbroken iPhone and iPod Touch via Cydia. Obviously, this game can’t be played as well on iDevices as on a PC, but never the less, it’s available, and that counts for something.

To get Quake 3 –

1. Go To Cydia.(You Must Be Jailbroken)
2. Just Type Quake in the search box.
3. Download Quake 3 arena.. Size is about 45 MB
The game was ported on all iDevices.

The Game is still undergoing Development but it is still playable.

[Tutorial] How To Jailbreak A4 Devices On iOS 6.

 

The iPhone dev team have updated Redsn0w, adding full support for final public release of iOS 6 on select devices with official version of Cydia, along with tons of new features which are detailed after the jump.

Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 for both Windows and Mac not only adds support for tethered jailbreak of iOS 6 on A4 based devices, but also for re-restoring and downgrading of select devices from iOS 6 to an older firmware, or in case of re-restoring, from iOS 5.x to iOS 5.x.

Supported devices:

First and foremost, it is important to note this is a tethered jailbreak and is only meant for devices boasting an A4 Processor (or below), namely: the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the 4th-gen iPod Touch. Devices with A5 (iPhone 4S, iPad 2), A5X (iPad 3) and A6 (iPhone 5) processors are not supported at this point. Hacktivation + baseband preservation support has also been added for iPhone 4 and 3GS.

This latest version of Redsn0w does not require the user to go through the trouble of downloading and pointing the app to the iOS 6 IPSW for the jailbreak (the older version of Redsn0w, as mentioned in our previous jailbreak iOS 6 guide, required manual IPSW selection). Instead, the latest Redsn0w recognizes the firmware already installed on your device, downloads the required files and proceeds with the jailbreak. It’s that simple. Cydia, as mentioned above, is now also included as part of this Redsn0w’s release.

Jailbreaking is done in the same way as it is done with iOS 5.

Note for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS Ultrasn0w unlockers: You will first need to preserve your older baseband to be eligible for unlock. Click on “Extras” option and then select “Custom IPSW” option. Select the required iOS 6 IPSW file for your device, and let Redsn0w make the custom firmware for you. Once done, enter Pwned DFU mode by selecting “Pwned DFU” from Redsn0w’s Extras option, and then restore to this custom firmware.

How to boot your device tethered on iOS 6:

Since this is a tethered iOS 6 jailbreak, you will need to boot your device in a tethered mode every time the device is turned off and back on. Booting in tethered mode is easy, and can be achieved using Redsn0w: click on the “Extras” from the main screen and then simply click on “Just Boot” option. Follow the on-screen instructions. Once done, you will be rebooted back into tethered-jailbreak mode.

What’s new in Redsn0w 0.9.15b2?

New re-restore features have also been introduced in this version of Redsn0w. It now allows third-gen iPad and iPhone 4S users to RE-restore to any version of iOS 5.x even if Apple is currently not signing the software, provided that your SHSH blobs are saved for iOS 5.x, and the device is currently running iOS 5.x (not iOS 6) that too updated via iTunes, not OTA. iPad 2 users will also be able to downgrade if they have blobs for both 4.x and 5.x saved – even from iOS 6. The A4 based iPhone 4, 3GS and 4th-gen iPod Touch users can of course always downgrade to an older firmware for untethered jailbreak provided that they have SHSH blobs saved for the firmware they want to downgrade on.

If you want to install Cydia on iOS6,refer to this article.
