By |October 20th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

The new Pwnage Tool came out this morning right before Apple's Live event.  Obviously, we didn't have time to cover it... and we won't be able to cover it fully until we jailbreak our iPhone 4 and Apple TV here at the office.  But, we'll go ahead and get you the pertinent information so you know what you're getting into. In addition to the slew of already existing iOS devices, the Apple TV is now hackable via the Jailbreak from Pwnage Tool.  At this point, it's not a feature-rich jailbreak.  The [...]

Ultrasn0w for 4.0.1: T minus 48 hours

The biggest part of this ruling is the potential that Apple will need to extend their warranties to the unlocked/jailbroken com [...]

CTA Presents: The State of the Jailbreak Address

By |February 1st, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

We follow the Jailbreak/Unlock scene very closely here at CTA… not because our iPhones are necessarily running on T-Mobile (we want 3G not EDGE) but because we don’t want to be restricted in the Applications we install on our Apple mobile devices. Unfortunately for us and for you, there hasn’t been any new iPhone unlocking news for nearly three months. This is partially due to the fact that Apple hasn’t released new firmware in that amount of time… one of the lon [...]
