Update on an Untethered Jailbreak

It seems the Dev-Team is getting closer to having an untethered jailbreak. When the Dev-Team found the untethered jailbreak they dubbed it the “backup plan.” (It’s a “backup plan” because comex is working on a more extensible one, but this method is also generalizable.) Yesterday Musclenerd tweeted, “… the backup plan for those w/legit access to 4.2b3 IPSW is about ready…again though, better to wait for comex.” He also said that;

“Thanks to comex, redsn0w can now handle much bigger files than ramdisk 25MB limit. Useful for “backup plan” 4.2 untether”

“This latest @comex code also allows retrieval of photos+files stuck behind an unfixable filesystem problem…good stuff!”

Google Rolling Out Ability to Edit Google Docs via Mobile Browser [Video]

When I heard that Google had announced that, in the next few days, they will be rolling out the ability to edit Google docs from the mobile browser… I have to admit that my ears perked up. I know this might seem totally old school but I use Google docs for my grocery list (I know! There are a ton of apps in the App Store for grocery lists but I can’t help it… I always go back to Google docs). Anyway, I would LOVE (LOVE, LOVE… did I mention LOVE) to see an easier way edit my Google docs while out and about. Though, after checking out the demo video, I’m not sure if this is going to be the improvement I was looking for. I guess I will have to wait and see what I think about the new feature. Honestly I would just like to see an official Google Docs app in the App Store. Below is more info about the new Edit feature including a demo video (done on a droid!!).

guyPhone 4 – Working iPhone 4 Costume Made From 40″ LED Screen

##ICON_NAME##Ok, if I was at a costume party tonight, this is totally what I would wear. Of course I wasn’t at a costume party. I was recording episode 24 of our video podcast, i101! Anyway, this thing is totally awesome. An iPhone is hacked to use it’s display out to a 40″ flat screen (that is not actually touch) running on a 2 hour battery that you can wear! There’s a sweet little video, lots of pics and the full details below. Oh, and the flash on the back lights up, I’m so jealous.



Press Release

TAMPA, FLA., John Savio (Center), Abigail Gardner (Featured as Apple Employee) This year they’re back at it again. John Savio and Reko Rivera went their separate ways. John created the upgraded rendition of the iPhone 4 featured here at 10x to scale, complete with a 40″ LED LCD Panel, a Jailbroken iPhone 4, VGA out from the iPohone, LED Back Camera Light, weighs roughly 75 lbs and uses a mini 12v Battery with 2+ hours of battery life. The costume took a total of 3 days / 40 hours to complete.

BACKSTORY — This all started three years ago Reko Rivera and Bobby Hartman created a wearable large iPhone costume with a real 37″ lcd tv. An iPod was attached with a looping video of a real iphones screen in normal use. Last year with the help of John Savio and John Matthews the team created yet another amazing rendition of the new iPhone 3GS. Savio loved the original idea but wanted to take it to the next level and make it thinner and actually work with user input! With some heavy researching and some solid determination Savio finally found a solution. He managed to modify the software on the iPhone to allow a live dual image output to the large 42″ lcd tv while maintaining the image in landscape mode. Reko originally came up with the idea and really pushed to see his vision come to life two years ago. This year John Savio and Reko Rivera embarked on different projects. John stuck with his love of apple products and Reko ventured off to explore his love of DJ’ing with a mobile DJ setup.

I’ll explain each of these better below and I’ve also included the full video of the announcement which includes updates to the MacBook Air and iLife. [Read more…]

FullScreen for Safari

Available In: Cydia Price: $1.49

SafariThis super sweet hack is just as the title sounds, a full screen feature for the stock Safari app. This means no address bar and no toolbar at the bottom. Don’t worry, it’s not an all or nothing option. You can use a variety of gestures to initiate full screen mode. There are also other gestures for things like back and scrolling up. This only works on iOS 4 but it works really well. It ran very smooth for us and it’s definitely a keeper! Can’t wait for it to work with the iPad (as of now it’s not compatible)
