    Warning: Spirit Jailbreakers: Do Not Update while using the Spirit JB Exploit. Use RedSn0w, PwnageTool, or Sn0wBreeze to jailbreak first, and THEN you may use these new tools.


    Yesterday we had the release of PwnageTool 4.01 for Mac, from the Dev-Team, which allowed you to make custom iOS 4 firmwares ready for jailbreaking. Only a day later, we now have Windows support for creating custom jailbroken firmwares, with Sn0wBreeze 1.6

    Just like RedSn0w, you will have the additional functionality options for the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G, for multitasking ...

    Talk about holding one's calls.

    Apparently, if you hold the iPhone 4 by the antenna band, you'll lose your bars, your reception, and maybe even your call. As this video making the rounds showcases, holding the handset with your fingers pressed upon the antenna throws off your cell reception and effectively reduces your bars all the way down, in some cases, to zero. ...

    The iPhone 4 is here.



    You've already seen it of course. Both before and while Steve decided to show it off. You've seen the box (although Apple.com had that up there since they launched the iPhone 4 on their site - who knows why that's so exciting, ha). You've had iOS4 in your hands for days or weeks. And I'm going to show it all to you again. Because now it's in our hands.

    The Packaging


    (you can click any of the photos in this article for larger versions)

    The box is smaller than the previous iPhones. It comes much the same as the other iPhones have - cardboard box, wrapped in clearwrap. Also, the box is white, even though the iPhone is black.



    Once opened, the iPhone 4 is immediately viewable on top of the box, with the same protective clearwrap as previous models. Also the same is the USB cable, earphones, and USB to AC adapter as well. The USB to AC adapter is considerably smaller than the past iPhone models were. Two Apple decals are in the box as well.





    Setting it Up

    Fairly straightforward here - same process as before. Although the first thing you notice when you plug it in is that screen. Apple calls it a "retina display ...

    Now that people are finally getting their hands on iPhone 4s, a few of them are turning up defective. The Unofficial Apple Weblog passes on news of some new Apple Support discussion threads where users are noticing iPhone 4 screens with some discolored areas. There's no word from Apple yet on this issue, which appears to have been first reported at about 7:45am Pacific time today.

    In every ...

    A "leak" has been reported on Addictive Tips from an Apple employee code named "Alpha." While we caution anyone to accept the validity of the information until credible sources chime in and more information becomes known, there is growing chatter tonight across the blogosphere about this still dubious "news" item.

    "Alpha" supposedly works in the iPhone Development Department and has been privy to what amounts to a "shocking" revelation that ...

    The hits just keep coming.

    In an oddly cheery-yet-gloomy Facebook post, RadioShack has informed its customers that "we are not able to fulfill all requests for the iPhone 4 on launch day." After chirping excitedly that "The Shack can’t wait until Thursday!" the post drops the bomb on its customers who pre-ordered (or made a Customer Request in "Shack" lingo). It does make the ...

    The results are in. Early benchmark tests indicate that the iPhone 4, as one would hope, is faster than the iPhone 3GS. It isn't, however, faster than the iPad, although this news doesn't appear to have shocked anyone thus far. But based on the findings of the Geekbench 2 app, the iPhone 4 likely won't disappoint anyone by proving too slow for our lightning-fast expectations.

    Here's what ...

    As many iPhone 4 buyers eagerly await the impending arrival of their new Apple smartphone, the first individuals to savor and soak up the fresh features and attributes of the 4th generation iPhone have already done so. They're the critics, gadget gurus, and other major media titans who have been afforded the opportunity to scrutinize the iPhone 4 ahead of its official release and launch. And so far, the iPhone 4 has thoroughly "wowed" ...

    According to the above video, AT&T won't begin selling iPhone 4s at their retail stores until June 29. The spokeshipster "Daniel" says that AT&T's "top priority in our stores is to take care of our customers who ordered an iPhone 4 and requested it be delivered to an AT&T store."

    And presumably, this will take 5 days. Fun.

    Update: For anyone who saw iBooks problems after redsn0w beta, try the latest one (see update #2 at Dev-Team Blog - all four one! )

    Just one day after the relase of iOS 4.0, the Dev-Team has done it once again. Not only did they release an unlock tool the day iOS 4 came out, they have now released a brand new version of PwnageTool for creating custom iOS 4.0 firmware packages. This means almost everyone can get on board now. *almost everybody.

    According to Apple’s new privacy policy, the company claims the right to obtain “the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device” and share it with “partners and licensees.” Nicole Martinelli over at Cult of Mac reports on an LA Times story highlighting the change in the document, which specifically mentions the Find My iPhone app as an example, but is carefully vague about whether ...
