Apple recently released iOS 5.0.1 and the jailbreak community has been advised to not upgrade. Pod2g recently found an exploit that may help to provide an untethered jailbreak and this exploit is patched on iOS 5.0.1. If you like many are seeking to use an untethered jailbreak, it would be wise to stay on iOS 5.0 because thats where the untethered jailbreak will be. For those of you who accidentally upgraded or unknowingly upgraded to iOS 5.0.1 you may be wondering how to downgrade back to iOS 5.0.

Charlie Miller, a well-known Mac hacker and researcher has reportedly found a way to sneak malware into the App Store and subsequently onto any iOS device through the use of exploiting a flaw in Apple’s restrictions on code signing. According to Forbes, the restrictions allow the malware to steal user data and take control of certain iOS functions.
Miller explained that the code signing restrictions allow only Apple’s approved commands to run in an iOS device’s memory and apps that violate these rules aren’t allowed in the App Store. He found a way to bypass Apple’s security check by More >
Apple seeded iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 to developers today. This update came roughly two days after the first iOS 5.0.1 beta.
If you are signed-up developer you’ll be getting this update over the air. Or, you could head on over to the iOS Developer Center and download it without waiting. This version is identified by codename 9A404, while yesterdays release was 9A402, and more than likely the changes between the two are rather tiny.
The fixes, which include those introduced in iOS 5.0.1 beta 1, are:
- Fixes bugs affecting battery life
- Adds Multitasking Gestures for original More >
Earlier today Apple seeded iOS 5.0.1 beta to developers. This update on the iOS firmware is said to fix a few bugs and enhance performance. Amongst the issues the update addresses are the iPhone 4S battery issues, the iPad 2 smart cover security flaw, and multitasking gestures for the original iPad.
If you happen to be a jailbreaker who couldn’t resist the urge of updating to the new beta firmware, we have some good news for you. MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has recently tweeted that the latest version of RedSn0w (RedSN0w 0.9.9 beta 7) can jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta. All you More >
Apple is said to have recently filed a new patent application that describes sophisticated voice recognition technology that would allow greater control of the iPhone compared to before. The iPhone currently includes a Voice Control feature but this feature is generally said to remain unnoticed by a vast majority of users. The latest patent entitled “User Profiling for Voice Input Processing” described how an iPhone could be used to perform more complex tasks than is currently possible today.
An example of this would be creating a Genius playlist featuring a certain artist. You could just More >

Apple recently released the latest update to iOS, now version 4.3.5, to address security flaws. This update comes quickly after the 4.3.4 update which addressed a similar security flaw used to jailbreak iDevices. According to Apple’s Knowledge Base article about the update mentions the following:
“Available for: iOS 3.0 through 4.3.4 for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 (GSM), iOS 3.1 through 4.3.4 for iPod touch (3rd generation) and later, iOS 3.2 through 4.3.4 for iPad.

MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) has recently tweeted that the iPhone Dev-Team has released the third beta of RedSn0w for the recently released iOS 4.3.4 / iOS 4.2.9.
redsn0w b3 http://is.gd/6eek4Y is a *tethered* 4.3.4 JB for kernel hackers only (see #3). Most should stay back at 4.3.3!
This version of RedSn0w is for kernal hackers only. There is NO reason for an average user to update to iOS 4.3.4 and use this jailbreak as of right now.
Apple pushed out iOS 4.3.4 for the iPhone, iPad, and the iPod Touch. If you or someone you know accidentally upgraded to iOS 4.3.4 (on a GSM iDevice) or iOS 4.2.9 (on a CDMA iDevice) and your iDevice is not an iPad 2 then you are safe! You can use PwnageTool to jailbreak any device except for the iPad 2 running on the new version of iOS, while also preserving your baseband for an ultrasn0w unlock later on (for those of you with iPhones). The tool / jailbreak method has been confirmed to work. One of the downsides is that the jailbreak is tethered, which means that if your device loses power More >
