Jailbreak iOS 4.2 GM on iPhone 4, iPod touch and iPad with Redsn0w

Few moments ago, Apple pushed iOS 4.2 Gold Master into Developers Center. The newly released Redsn0w 0.9.6 has been confirmed to jailbreak iOS 4.2 GM on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G and iPad. So, if you have got your copy of iOS 4.2 GM, you will be able to jailbreak it using the instructions posted below.
Today Apple released to developers the GM seed for 4.2. Tinkerers will find that yesterday’s redsn0w jailbreaks today’s 4.2 GM seed, simply by pointing redsn0w at the 4.1 IPSW (rather than the 4.2 one). Right now it mostly only makes sense for JB app developers to do that because many apps (including Cydia itself) need to be updated for 4.2. However, if all you want to do is enable afc2 (to use iFunBox or other file browsers), or to tweak settings like Battery % and Homescreen wallpapers, then go for it (if you have valid paid access to the GM seed). Be sure to uncheck the Cydia box, though! Ultrasn0w unlockers should stay very far away from this!!

STEP 1: Download iOS 4.1 (required for jailbreak) and iOS 4.2 then connect your iOS device into your computer via USB and make sure that iTunes is not running.

STEP 2: Launch Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 and click Browse then point it to iOS 4.1 original firmware file NOT iOS 4.2.

STEP 3: Now select “Install Cydia” and hit the Next button to continue the process.

STEP 4: A prompt will appear to put the device in DFU mode. For this just follow the instructions appearing on the screen or hold Home + Power buttons at the same time for exactly 10 seconds and then release the power button while continuing to press home.

UPDATE: You can upgrade to iOS 4.2 now without need to UDID registration, follow our guide posted here to do so.

How to Upgrade to iOS 4.2 NOW

So, iOS 4.2 GM was released today for developer and would be released for public in a few days but do you want really to get it now? We have good news, you can get your hands dirty now thanks to the powers of the internet. You do not need your UDID to execute the installation. It seems like you can't upgrade to iOS 4.2 using iTunes 10 so you may need to install iTunes 10.1 beta to commerce.

STEP 1: Download and install iTunes 10.1 beta 2 (Mac OS X, Windows)

STEP 2: Now, you need to download the right gold master version for your device:

STEP 3: Connect your iPhone into your computer via USB and iTunes hold Alt (Shift in Windows) and click on the 'restore' button then point it to one of the gold master files you download above. Wait for between 10 and 15 minutes for the new OS to be moved over.

Finally have fun, you can also jailbreak iOS 4.2 (not unlock). Also keep in mind that iOS 4.2 should go public sometime next week, but who wants to wait? of course let us know if you faced any problems by commenting in the section below, we would love to hear from you! [Thanks Brian Sweet for making this possible]

iPhone 5 to Enable Ambitious Remote Computing Program?

If users wave a NFC-equipped iPhone at a NFC Mac (they need to be in close proximity to interact), the Mac will load all their applications, settings and data. It will be as though they are sitting at their own machine at home or work. When the user leaves, and the NFC-equipped iPhone is out of range, the host machine returns to its previous state.

“The Mac authenticates with the iPhone, which contains a lot of the information the computer needs, such as bookmarks, passwords and other data,” said our source, who asked to remain anonymous. “The system would essentially turn any Apple computer into your own — like you’re actually working on your own computer. Same settings, look, bookmarks, preferences. It would all be invisible. Your iPhone would be all you needed to unlock your Mac.”
The report also indicates that small items of information would be stored directly on your iPhone as password, documents, and settings files. But the larger items would be stored in the cloud to be included in the service, given the sizes of those items and the relatively slow transfer speeds used in NFC. This is only rumor and we may never see this but it would be very interesting if Apple really did that. Stay tuned as we'll keep you updated about the topic.

Remove Cydia Ads to Speed Up Cydia [Guide]

I think most of you are often suffering from Cydia ads, specially when the ads make it difficult to use the app without accidentally tapping on the ads. It makes sense to find ads on the free apps, but at  the same time and at the least I want to be able to do things such as read the app descriptions, see details and etc. Therefor I will show you - after the jump - a very simple way to get rid of Cydia ads.

STEP 1: FTP/SSH to your device.

STEP 2: Find this file /Applications/Cydia.app/package.js

STEP 3: Search for this, you may find it in line 209:
if (depiction == null)
Change it to:
if (depiction == null || true)
STEP 4: Now enjoy an ad free Cydia.

Here is the screen-shots before and after:
Of course if you want to see the ads again you simply have to reverse step 3. [via DailyMobiles]

Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 Brings Jailbreak for iOS 4.1 on All Devices and More

Couple of days back, iPhone Dev Team released PwnageTool 4.1 for Mac OS X based on Limera1n's exploit to jailbreak all iOS 4.1 devices. Now, they have merged Limera1n's exploit into Redsn0w too to be able to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad and iPod touch. Moreover, this version brings custom boot logos and the ability for Windows users to restore using custom firmwares created by PwnageTool.
- custom bootlogos for iPhone3G/iPhone3GS/iPod2G users (with qualifying bootroms)
- an option that implements the “DFU” button in PwnageTool. This button (which you can use from Windows) lets you prepare your device for a custom DFU. Even if you’re purely a Windows user, you can get a trusted friend to run PwnageTool over your IPSW to create a custom IPSW. You can now install that custom IPSW on your own Windows box, after you run this redsn0w version.

VLC for iOS May be Pulled from the App Store

VLC, the popular meida player that's developed by French 3rd party studio Applidium, has landed on the iPad in September and then on the iPhone last week to play almost any video. But as noticed by iLounge, it may be pulled from the app store very soon for some reasons explained below.
Apple has been sent a formal notification of copyright infringement regarding the way VLC for iOS is distributed in the App Store. RĂ©mi Denis-Courmont, one of the primary developers of VLC, explained that Apple’s iTunes Terms and Conditions don't allow users to install both free and paid apps on more than 5 devices. This goes against the original GNU license VLC's code is based on.
In any case, while the rules for distribution of open-source or "free" (as in speech) software are extremely relaxed, they do exist and have to be abode by. VLC and open-source software in general would not have reached their current quality and success if it had not been for their license. Therefore, blatant license violation cannot be tolerated at any rate. Concerned users are advised to look for application on more open mobile platforms for the time being.
So, in case you don't have the app already on your iPhone, better get it now as it still available.
