  • iOS 4 Goes Live


    It has arrived.

    Apple has released iOS 4 and the full slate of new features that come with it. As a result, the new iOS has sent iPhone lovers into a frenzy. And not without good reason. Compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, and the most recent iPod touch, iOS 4 will now come preinstalled on the iPhone 3GS, in addition to the 4th generation iPhone, on tap for a Thursday release.

    To prep for the update, be sure to upgrade to Tunes 9.2 and similarly update all your apps. In recent days, a wave of updates have befallen the App Store.

    The 2009 iPhone 3GS and current iPod touch model will see a host of new bells and whistles. Some of the features you're about to start enjoying:

    * Multitasking
    * Folders
    * iBooks
    * 5x digital zoom
    * Tap to focus video
    * Home screen wallpaper
    * Spell check
    * Wireless keyboard support


    Shortly after Apple rolled out the new iOS, Version 1.1 of iBooks (now available for download) turned up, essentially making the app available on any iPhone or iPod with iOS 4. Best of all, while the iPad won't have the new iOS for a while, the new app does benefit iPad owners by bestowing the ability to open and read PDF documents and save them to the virtual bookshelf.

    EDIT 5:13PM - As of yet, there is no public jailbreak or unlock for iOS4. The Dev Team have repeatedly been letting us know the last few weeks it's all able to be jailbroken and unlocked, so your best bet is to hold on updating a few days while they finish testing on the actual release version of iOS4.

    Keep an eye peeled here, we'll let you know as soon as there's a public jailbreak and unlock for iOS 4.0. ultrasn0w already unlocks basebands through 05.13.04 as of today, so all we need is the iOS4 jailbreak solution to be made public from the Dev Team.

      You need to have a iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G to use Redsnow 0.9.5b5-2

      To use Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-2 it REQUIRES the following:

      iTunes 9.2
      iPhone 3G
      iPod Touch 2G
      iOS4 GM

      Apps need to be updated for multitasking to work with them ...very few have at this point.

      I'm sure the CBS app hasn't been updated for iOS4 yet too.

      Not if you have a backup and sync with that computer, then you shouldn't have a problem

      Why is it that after 3 years of jailbreaking and unlocking people STILL attempt to do either without checking to make sure they've got everything they need?

      I just upgraded my iPod Touch 3G to iOS 4.0. The two features that I just realized are not there for me are 1) Home Screen Wallpaper and 2) Multitasking. I'm OK with multitasking not being available on a 3G iPod Touch (I was expecting it was though) but I'm pretty sure that Home-screen wallpaper changing should be available. Any thoughts or people who are having similar problems? Or are there any people with 3G iPod Touches on iOS 4 who ARE able to change Home-Screen wallpaper?

      Yes, actually. Once a jailbreak is avaialble (which there is) desktop background and multitasking is enabled by default, and works flawlessly with 3G.
