    Once you've built your iOS 5.0 custom firmware, downgrading is easy.

    As I reported earlier this week, iH8sn0w released iFaith version 1.4 which allows you to save your iOS 5.0 SHSH blobs and APticket so that you can create a custom iOS 5.0 firmware file to use in downgrading your iDevice back to iOS 5.0. The guide on saving your iOS 5.0 SHSH blobs and APticket can be read here. iFaith works with iOS 5.0.1 too. But since people are nervous that the Chronic Dev Team's untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 might not work with iOS 5.0.1, there is all the more reason to just play it safe and get insurance for iOS 5.0 as I like to call it. Since we just posted ...

    iFaith was updated as insurance for iOS 5.0 for you.

    iH8sn0w released the updated iFaith not too long ago as I reported earlier this week and it allowed you to save your SHSH blobs and APticket for iOS 5.0 and let you build a custom '.ipsw' file that you could use to restore to iOS 5.0 in iTunes at any time. We already went over that though and there will be another guide coming up that explains how to use that custom '.ipsw' file to downgrade to iOS 5.0. In this guide, we will be showing you how to save your information and build your '.ipsw' file.

    YOU WILL NEED:
    1. A Windows machine (or Mac running Windows)
    2. iFaith version 1.4
    3. An iOS 5.0 iDevice.

    The first step is to plug your iDevice into your computer and download iFaith from ...

    Turns out Samsung might have a happy new year down under after all.

    The Australian courts shot down Apple’s appeal that would have reinstated an injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab the Australian courts recently lifted. While this doesn't mean Apple has no grounds for an appeal, it is essentially a vote of no confidence from the High Court that an appeal against an earlier Federal ...

    Remember this little guy up here?

    iFile is perhaps the greatest and most well-known file browser for iOS. iFile lets you visit any directory in your iDevice and lets you edit, add, delete, or move files within your filesystem. It lets you do it right from your iDevice, no SSH or USB browser necessary. This means that you can edit things on the fly without needing a computer to follow you around.

    If you don't know by now, the iPhone has a filesystem just like any Mac or PC. iOS's filesystem is just closed off to you until you jailbreak it. The filesystem can be a very fragile part of any iDevice just like any computer and deleting files or editing them irresponsibly has the full potential to lead you to needing to restore your iDevice to factory ...

    After you jailbreak ([follow our guides if you haven't), you have the ability to change any aspect of your device. Cydia is a store that contains countless applications and tweaks (software packages that change your device configurations). A tweak can do something as minor as changing the color of something or as major as letting you use full screen browsing in Mobile Safari - and much more. Some are free and some are paid. Cydia also has various applications and themes; some Apple never accepted into the App Store, such as Grooveshark.

    This guide is intended for beginner level jailbreakers and will show you how to install and uninstall a jailbreak tweak.

    To begin, make sure that you have a jailbroken ...

    Cydia is the application that is installed on your iDevice after you jailbreak it. It's a store similar to the App Store and iTunes Store, only it sells tweaks and third party applications instead of things that Apple approves. They vary between prices and some are free. Since you need to be on a jailbroken iDevice to use Cydia, you will need to follow our guides on jailbreaking your iDevice from this link. This guide is intended for beginner level jailbreakers and will show you how to add sources ...

    Small things amuse small minds.

    Terminal is a powerful tool. But it can be used for fun things too! You can watch Star Wars in Terminal, and now you can open the Nyan Cat on Terminal. The possibilities are endless! To show the Nyan Cat in your Terminal window, you will need to enter a command. There are two different commands for two separate systems:

    BSD
    PHP Code:
    nc -v miku.acm.uiuc.edu 23 
    GNU
    PHP Code:
    nc -T miku.acm.uiuc.edu

    This is very easy to do... and it couldn't be a more important feature.

    If you're always paranoid that there's something waiting... watching in the background of your computer, just waiting for the right moment to read your keystrokes, then Terminal might be one of the worst applications that you could be using. It uses your administrator password when you log in as a super user, and if you're a command ...

    The Dock in Mac OS X has the ability to hold folders and stacks.

    One of the cool features of the Mac OS X Dock is the ability to create stacks and folders on it. You can group applications, documents, or other forms of data that are easy to reach on the Dock. As we all know, Mac OS X Lion was released with the intent of adding numerous forms of multi-touch gestures to Mac OS X. With three-finger dragging, two-finger scrolling, and four-finger paging ...

    Did you know that the Apple headphones with the inline mic and remote can be used to take pictures?

    If you have ever picked up a pair of Apple headphones with the inline mic and remote and you enjoy photography, you might be happy to hear this. If you've taken an iPhone video or photo before, you might have noticed that it can be a really shaky experience; more so videos than photos.
