I am sure you will enjoy the video! A brief yet concise presentaton by the masters themselves. A very good detail but not giving it all up for Apple to take advantage. It is close to an hour’s presentation. Video is not the best of quality but that is all I got my hands on for now.

[22 Apr 2008 | 6 Comments | ]

We have all been using Ripdev’s find for taking screenshots on your 1.1.4 iPhone using the (toggle mute button + holding home button) trick. Apple no longer hides the screenshot facility in the beta firmware (iPhone 2.0 beta 5A240d build)
Just hold the Power/Sleep button and then hold the home button until you see a white flash like screen. The screenshots are saved in your camera roll (Photos) in PNG format.
Now for the best part : it is capable of capturing greater details of a frame in the videos – be …

Once iNdependence v 1.4b5 was released with 1.1.4 support, I went ahead and updated the iPhone (16GB 1.1.3 OTB unlocked using iJailbreak)from 1.1.2 to 1.1.4 via iTunes which gave me an error. I repeated the same and the update went fine and now I have version 1.1.4 installed on the iPhone.
I then fired iNdependence trying to jailbreak/activate my iPhone. I hit the Activate button and it didn’t respond in a timely fashion showing me the Jailbreak screen. I then hit the Jailbreak tab to Jailbreak the iPhone which gave me …

Yes, the word is out. Though it was practically possible as soon as Jailbreak for 1.1.1 was announced but it took me many hours of tweaking (more than 18) but couldn’t get my Cingular sim back at work (without the 2 year contract). I searched all over the internet but none were reporting positively about 1.1.1 Jailbreak let alone Cingular working on it. This post at TechDadBlog initiated hope after clueless searches on Google for 1.1.1 hack. Vaughan and Mike did a great job on trying different alternatives. Finally, with …

The entire world is ecstatic about the iPhone and iPhone Dev team announced the official hack (jailbreak) for the much coveted iPhone f/w 1.1.1 by a simple TIFF exploit, thanks Niacin. No more hunting for batch pre-38 week iPhones. The best part being – we can finally order an iPhone directly from Apple without fearing if it would work and hey, you can apply your iPhone store credit if any 🙂
Why do you even have to upgrade to 1.1.1 when 1.0.2 is working just fine?? Forgot the sound enhancement, iPhone …

1.1.1, firmware, hack, iphone »

[8 Oct 2007 | No Comment | ]

Its been a long time since the developers started exploiting the iPhone firmware loopholes but with the upgrade to 1.1.1 the hacking scenario came to a standstill. After long days of silence, here comes the reply – Apple could not perfectly seal the iPhone from a 3rd party hack! Erica of TUAW fame began her live blogging adventure and she released a saying ‘iPhone 1.1.1 is Jailbroken’. Jailbreak is the only thing letting us off from accessing the iPhone internals and after this update, the demand for iPhones with …
