IPhone 1.1.3 unbricked !

20 Jan 2008  1 Comment


Yup, you’ve heard it right but there is always a price to pay.

The hack requires guts by opening your phone’s guts and it will only downgrade the firmware to v. 1.1.2 then jail-breaking it, meaning you’re better of buying the phone with 1.1.2 firmware if you need to unlock it.

UPDATE: GIZMODO claims that they managed to unbrick IPhones that were bricked from previous firmware (1.1.1/1.1.2), by recovering and upgrading the phone to 1.1.3 via an active ITunes account !? check it out ..

New Toys From The Apple Boys!

16 Jan 2008  No Comments

Ok, so what was new from apple? here is a list of what Steve Jobs told the world yesterday:

1) Time Capsule   

A wireless-n router + a NAS this might be the best news I’ve heard in el jobso’s keynote. I’m defiantly going to get me one of these, but there is some talk that it can’t be used as a full NAS just an add-on for Time-Machine backup utility. Guess I’ll have to wait and see before I rush into it. It’s completely wireless and it comes in 2 flavors 500GB and 1TB and they will be selling $299 and $499 respectively and it will be shipping the beginning of February.[Link]

2) iPhone and iPod Touch Update:

So he talked about the 1.1.3 like we didn’t know about it. Here is the list of the new features:

- New maps with location support – its not as accurate as GPS but its the next best thing. Using wifi and cell tower triangulation to find you + new hybrid view and you can drop a pin anywhere on the map drag it and calculate best route to that location from your current location.

- Web clips – you can bookmark a webpage or even a certain part of a page and have it on your home screen(s).

- Home screen Customization – hold any icon for a couple of second and it start jiggling, then you can drag them around to arrange up to 9 home screens.

- SMS multiple people at once – does exactly that.

- Video chapter, subtitle and language support for videos – you can skip to certain chapters or have different audio track or switch on or off your subtitles.

- Lyrics support – displays lyrics on the album art.

Plus the iPod touch will also have new applications already found on the iPhone such as weather, stocks, mail, notes and maps for $20. now thats just not fare don’t you think?[Link]


3) iTunes Movie Rentals:

Watch out Netflix, now you can rent over 1000 titles online and watch them on any iPod or iPhone or Mac, there are library titles and new releases, they will cost $2.99 and $3.99 for the SD version and for the HD you just add $1.

4) New Apple TV:

Jobs admitted that apple have failed with the apple TV.But they’re fixing it, by taking the PC or Mac out of the equation. The new Apple TV can rent movies watch YouTube videos .Mac pictures or videos and Flickr photos without the need of a PC or a Mac. now that’s a step in the right direction. Previous owners will get a free update.[Link]


5) Macbook Air

The new overpriced ultra-thin light-as-AIR laptop, is damn sexy! but it has its drawbacks. as Heema mentioned the battery is sealed in. Not only that but the HDD and the RAM and everything else too. It’ s the world thinnest laptop so i guess they did compromise. but it has a full size keyboard an iSight 2GB ram 1.6-1.8Ghz Core Duo CPU, 80 HDD or 64 SSD for an extra $1000 Yikes!.[Link]
