**** Updated 1/15/12 **** Most of you are coming into this post with the latest 5.0.1 jailbreak because it broke your iBooks app just like the 4.2.1 jailbreak in 2011.  Thankfully, there's a fix for you too.  Just today, @saurik put out an update to Corona in Cydia.  Version 1.0-4 is the latest edition of Corona and it's supposed to fix your iBooks issues.  Try that and you should be good to go. I just recently updated my iPhone to 4.2.1 thanks to the greenpois0n jailbreak.  Yes, I jailbreak... [...]

Dev Team releases a new and improved Pwnage Tool

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 [...]

Cocoa Touch Apps on Twitter

By |July 3rd, 2009|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , |

We don't always have time to write out a full-fledged CTA review, but we still want to keep our readers in the loop with all things Cocoa Touch... In an effort to still squeeze a little blogging into our already jam-packed lives, we'll be doing updates via twitter. We've been on twitter for over a month now, but haven't actually set it up to push live updates to the site until now. iPhone OS 3.0 appears to be working out pretty well - news did come out today about a vulnerability in the SMS prog [...]

iPhone OS 3.0 Unlocked and Jailbroken

By |June 24th, 2009|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , |

Quick update here - Not much to it, but if you jailbreak, you'll like it. Go to and download Redsn0w. You have to manually update to 3.0 via iTunes at this point, but if you're like me, you don't have a lot of jailbreak apps, just a couple themes that are easy to reapply. After updating to 3.0 - just run Redsn0w on your PC or mac, it'll do the whole jailbreak thing for you. After jailbreaking, add to your repositories in either Cydia or ICY, sorry [...]

A quick guide to QuickPwn

By |February 5th, 2009|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , |

Considering that we’re going to be talking about jailbreak apps coming up soon, we thought that it would be a good idea to explain the jailbreak process in extreme haste. A good majority of our posts will be to-the-point and news-related so that we can continue our daily lives while keeping the site up and running. We will, however, provide our old-school style reviews when we get the chance. Continue reading for more information about QuickPwn and jailbreaking your device… [...]

Pwnage Tool & QuickPwn Now 2.1 Compatible (Updated!)

***Update*** Looks like the windows version of quickpwn is out. We did it on our brand new iPhone 3G 16 GB… all we can say is nice! Worked like a charm. Let us know your results in the comments! P.S. Anyone who has news about — please share. ***End Update*** Remember what we said about iTunes 8 would need a patch to allow pwange? Well, it seems that we — The Dev Team as well — were wrong but thankfully! iTunes 8 no longer requires a hack to install the cu [...]

Dev Team Vs. Apple : Fight!

By |September 11th, 2008|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , |

Before you get your panties in a wad… if your device is already pwned, it will continue to function normally and will work totally fine with iTunes 8. If you haven’t pwned your iPod Touch or iPhone yet but are looking into it, then you have some more work to do. It seems as though Apple is still battling the Dev Team’s antics at least somewhat: iTunes 8 no longer allows you to restore an unpwned device with custom firmware, your device must first be pwned or iTunes 8 must be [...]

QuickPwn: Dev-Team Provides Easier Pwnage (Updated Again)

By |August 21st, 2008|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Just hours before Apple released the latest version of mobile device firmware, The iPhone Dev-Team released a completely new application called QuickPwn. Earlier today, they developed a very basic and rough, though functional, version of the software available — believe it or not — only for Windows as of now (There is a basic GUI version available now). Their intention was to improve the feelings in the Jailbreak Community so that not every release is Mac-only right away. Read mor [...]
