  • iTunes 9.1 Now Available, Jailbreak Users Beware!

    NOTE: iTunes 9.1 on Windows kills blackra1n. So if you use it to boot a tethered idevice, don't update! Reports of losing Syncing abilities with JB devices are circling as well. BE CAREFUL!

    Earlier today we reported that iTunes 9.1 may be expected with the release of the iPad. But today it looks like the iTunes 9.1 update heard the blogs talking about it, and decided to push it's way to our computers today. iTunes 9.1 is now available and brings some new iPad features ahead of schedule, with the iPad being released this Saturday in the USA.

    iTunes 9.1 comes with several new features and improvements, including:

    Sync with iPad to enjoy your favorite music, movies, TV shows, books and more on the go

    Organize and sync books you've downloaded from iBooks on iPad or added to your iTunes library

    Rename, rearrange, or remove Genius Mixes
    While it's not exactly a huge update, one could speculate that Apple might push an iTunes 9.2 closer to the release of the iPad, perhaps in an effort to hide some features that 9.1 might have leaked to those sneaky devs.

    Nonetheless, it's exciting to see the iPad making it's way into our latest iTunes update.

    For information on the security content of this update, please visit: Apple security updates

    NOTE: No word on wether this affects JB users, but i doubt it. Take precaution tho.

      I am in the same boat :-( Over a month now. I am hoping soon as I want to be able to tether my new iPad.

      I am using the new itunes with a 3GS on my MBP. I noticed some apps running a little quicker with the new update.

      So you reckon it's safe to update and sync with my 3G?

      Just a quick question does this kill blackra1n across all computers.. by that i mean if I update my main windows PC to the new itunes ... does that mean that If I connect it to and older pc without the Update this wont be able to run blackra1n either... I dont use Itunes at all just wondering if it makes any changes to the actual phone..
