Its been a while since I wrote a post, mainly owing to a ‘student -> real world job’ situation! Frankly speaking, I am not too much into beta stuff from Apple ( I do try them but I don’t think it makes sense to post hacks detailing those developer only builds). Anyway, here is something that caught my attention : Hulu. We all know Hulu’s free offerings and they made them even better by releasing a standalone client for Macs and PCs. The omission of Hulu from Boxee’s desktop client …

iPhone 3.0, jailbreak, QuickPwn, Windows »

[2 Apr 2009 | 8 Comments | ]

The much sought after firmware iPhone 3.0 Beta 2 firmware with a snappier touch over the Beta 1 is finally jailbroken (only a day after it was released!). Thanks to the Russian hackers @ iPhoneApps.ru
It is more or less a patched version of QuickPwn not endorsed by the Dev Team though. You get icy (from installer guys) on your iPhone and from there on you can put Cydia via SSH on your iPhone once you install openSSH.
I repeat, this jailbreak is intended only to those enrolled in the developer program. …

The evil AT&T is at it again, this time with an even cheaper tactic to hose the average user. They have announced a contract-free iPhone 3G for a whopping $599/$699 (8GB/16GB) with a possible 32GB iPhone round the block(June ’09). Since they are still locking you with AT&T though without a contract, it is a lame idea by AT&T.
So how in the world are developers, tech-enthusiasts, T-Mobile lovers exposed to this amazing Apple’s offering? Well, Microsoft to the rescue and some crazy-ass tactics to hit AT&T hard, real hard 😉

Backup, Cydia »

[27 Feb 2009 | 36 Comments | ]

Backing up Cydia apps has always been a pain! Different implementations exist with little or no success. I recently lost all my Cydia Apps since I thought I backed them up just fine (using AptBackup which can be installed from Cydia). How to save hours trying to get back all the apps installed in Cydia? And here goes the step by step guide to achieve it :
Test environment : I have used AptBackup while restoring iPhone 3G from 2.2 to 2.2.1 firmware on a Mac. I used iTunes 8.0.2.
And here …
