iOS 4.2

As Apple promised us last month that the new iOS would be coming out sometime this month and that day is almost here.

The new iOS is said to be coming out on Friday (11/12). This update will bring all the iDevices to 4.2, so when apple releseses the next iOS it would be done with one shot instead of having the iPad bringing up the rear.

So whats new with the iOS 4.2?

Well as far as the iPhone and iPod touch there’s not a “Big” change or improvement. The new features for the two would consist of a new link for FaceTime in the messages app, the ability to give thumbs up/down for youtube videos, there is a UI tweak that will allow us to control the volume from task switcher, and last but not least the ability to restrict installing and deletion of apps as well features of other apps.

The major updates/new features come for the iPad. The iPad’s updates come to us in the form or multitasking, folders, email threading along with the ability to open attachments with third party apps for the mail app, and the game center app. The ipad also has the same UI tweak as the iPhone and iPod touch to control volume in the task switcher, but it would also allow us to control the brightness from the task switcher.

Now here’s where the iPad goes beyond the iPhone and iPod touch. Any iPad running the iOS 4.2 will be able to use AirPrint and AirPlay which will allow the user to print wirelessly and stream music to apple TV and airplay speakers.

New Jailbreak Tool Limera1n

All I can say right now is WTF is going on….

So a couple of days ago I posted about the greenpois0n (GP) jailbreak that is set to come out tomorrow 10/10/10. This jailbreak would only work for the new iOS devices. GP is still good to go, BUT they might not use the SHAtter exploit. (See definitions)  GP might have to use the geohot exploit and save SHAtter for the next iPhone.

Early this morning news about “Limera1n” was announced. This jailbreak is to jailbreak the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G.  Limera1n is from Geohot who is the same person who gave us blackra1n with out previous iPhone jailbreaking needs.

There so much information coming in, will update as the day goes.

iPhone 5??? On VZW ???

This rumor has been going around for a long time and it looks like it might come true. Verizon wireless may be getting the iPhone. Not just any iPhone but an iPhone 5 starting early 2011 and the iphone 5 may be running on a 4G network!!!
Now this gets me thinking, what’s going to be so different about the iPhone 5? Apple is always saying the next one will be better then the last. The iPhone 4 has only been out for a few months with tons of great features like FaceTime, Multitasking, the Retina display, HD videos and so much more. Here are some of the new proposed features on the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5 is said to come with dual core processors with a higher and more powerful graphic chips. This will give us a much better and higher video resolutions, the multi-tasking will be quicker, and will take better still pictures.
Here are a few other features that would be on this bad boy:

Custom SMS Tones
Custom E-Mail alerts for different accounts
New sleeker body design (9.3 mm thick)
OLED screen
Messaging indicator light
Scratch and shatter proof screens
HD Audio
Wireless sync with iTunes
32 GB (basic) 64 GB (only going to get bigger with time)

With all this new information, it looks like the iPhone 5 is going to be nicely packaged with new hardware and less restrictions!!!
My question is this: Who’s thinking about going to Verizon now? I Am.

I’m not getting my hopes up until Apple says they are doing this.

greenpois0n jailbreak!!!

NEWS FLASH!!!!

If you have an iPhone 4 and have been waiting to Jailbreak it the wait is almost over. One of the members from the Chronic Dev Team have twitted that they are not expecting any more roadblocks for the new jailbreak tool. SO this means greenpois0n is set to be released on 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 AM!!!!

For those who don’t know what the greenpoisOn jailbreak is, let me break it down.

The CDT (Chronic Dev Team) found a low-level bootrom exploit that will pwn all current iOS devices PERMANENTLY!!!  This will only work for the fourth-gen A4 devices i.e. iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, and iPad

A video will be posted after the jailbreak is completed

Great work to all of those apart of the greenpoisOn jailbreak

Griffin Reveal for iPhone 4

When it comes to cell phone cases, I have a checklist that must be completed before I consider spending a few dead presidents. I have to make sure the style is something that represents me while doing its job.

When it came to Griffin’s Reveal case my first impression was that I thought it was another version of apple’s Bumper. I soon found out that it’s a one-piece case that I thought was interesting.

The Reveal is made from Polycarbonate (to protect the back) with an ultra – thin rubber lining that covers each side of the phone; it definitely acts as a cushion around the phone. The rubber cushion that covers all sides of the phone is a tight fit, while leaving openings only for the ringer switch, the headphone jack, dock connector, and speakers.

There are a couple of features that stood out about the Reveal. The rubber side that goes around the phone actually overlaps the front and back of the phone. So when the phone is placed down on a table, the phone it self wouldn’t touch the table only the rubber perimeter would.  Another good feature about this case is the Ring/Silent Switch opening. It’s easy to turn the switch from ring to silent and vise versa (Compared to Apple’s Bumper).

As far as dislikes the only thing that really bugged me is that Griffin didn’t include a front screen protector. Since this is my first Griffin case I’m not sure if they usually do or don’t include screen protectors. I would think with this kind of case Griffin would include a screen protector since the back is covered up pretty good.

Over all I really enjoy this case and haven’t taken it off since I got it. There are only two colors available, Black and White. The price for this Reveal case range from $15-$35 (Depending where you’re looking). You can pick one up at any best buy or order it online.
