As I mentioned yesterday, the current redsn0w jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 is currently still a tethered jailbreak for some devices. The Dev-Team has updated their recent post on jailbreaking iOS 4.2.1 with a definition of what a tethered jailbreak means. A great idea! Since most people are a little confused about what exactly a tethered jailbreak is. Below is the definition via the Dev-Team.
SBSettings, an application that allows you to quickly toggle settings on your device, has been updated to version 3.2.1. The update contains three bug fixes including a fix for the 4.2.1 firmware. Check out the full change log below. You can get SBSettings via the BigBoss source.
No Badges is a simple hack that removes the badges from the icons on your device’s homescreen. The hack is super simple… once you install it via Cydia and respring your springboard… you will no longer have badges. There are no setting for the app and it will not put an icon on your springboard. It just does the mod automatically when the app is installed. To get your badges back, just go into Cydia and remove the app. No Badges worked perfectly when I tested both installing and removing it. A nice little hack if it is what you are looking for. Personally, I would love to see the app have a few options such as the ability to turn off badges for specific applications (like the Mail app!) and leave badges on other apps. You can get No Badges via the BigBoss source.
I found this really nice fall wallpaper online with a nice variety of colored leaves. Looks great on both the iPhone and iPad. I had to rotate it for the iPhone. I’ve included both versions for download below. Just tap the one you want below to open the full resolution. Then hold your finger on the image until a pop up comes up allowing you to save the image. You can then set your wallpaper from either the Settings app or from the Photos app.
Last week, in Episode 24 of i101 and in this article, we talked about Table Connect, where developers connected an iPhone to a multi-touch surface which then allowed them to control and display the iPhone on the multi-touch surface. They have now released a second demo video that shows them playing Labryinth 2 on the giant 58″ multi-touch screen! Check out the demo video below.
The Washington Post recently released their free app for the iPad. They also released a demo video promoting the app. I finally got a chance to check it out and all I have to say is… that is seriously a lot of iPads! If you haven’t seen the video, you can check it out below.
Apple recently released a new iPad commercial titled – iPad is Electric. Similar to previous iPad ads, iPad is Electric displays single-word descriptions of the device including; cinematic, elementary, academic, full-size, presenting, bought, sold, fantasy, and electric. Check it out below.
Reset Safari for SBSettings is an SBSetting toggle that allows you to quickly clear Safari’s cache, history and remove all tabs. Once the app is installed, you will need to go into SBSettings and then the More option and turn the toggle on. Once it has been set as one of your toggles, it’s pretty simple to use… just tap the ResetSafari toggle and it clears everything. It does not actually toggle on or off… you just tap it and it instantly deletes everything. If you use the toggle while Safari is open, it will close the app in-order to reset it.
When I tested the app… it worked just as I expected. All my Safari history and tabs had been removed and my cache cleared. I didn’t catch any glitches with the app… let me know in the comments if you did. You can get Reset Safari for SBSettings via the BigBoss source.
The Dev-Team has updated the redsn0w jailbreak (version 0.9.6b2) to incorporate geohot’s limera1n exploit. The jailbreak is available for both Windows and Mac. Below is info on what devices the jailbreak works on and the new features of redsn0w 0.9.6b2.
Today, while we were in the Apple store, I happened to look over at Doug’s iPhone while he was using SBSettings and to my astonishment saw a beautiful SBSettings theme. Tenuis Matte is a clean SBSettings theme that just happens to go nicely with my favorite WinterBoard theme… Smoog. I think I may actual prefer it to the Smoog SBSettings theme. Anyway, what I then realized is that Tenuis Matte is actually a theme that comes with SBSettings (who knew!)… here I am installing themes when the best one comes with the app! So, if you are looking for a nice SBSettings theme, you may want to check out Tenuis Matte… if you haven’t already! Screenshots below.

Verizon recently announced they will soon begin selling the iPad starting October 28th. First off, do not be confused, the model they will be selling will be wifi only and will come with their mobile hotspot they call MiFi. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a wireless, battery powered wifi router, about the size of a credit card, that gets it’s internet from the cell phone towers.
So, to be clear, the iPads that Verizon will be selling will be wifi only and will not have the ability to receive data from Verizon on their own without using the MiFi device. The battery life of the MiFi is somewhere between 3 & 4 hours and the iPad is somewhere near 10 hours. Read more
