Lets talk iPhone

Its been 12 hrs since official launch of so called iPhone 4s ….. huh  ,thus compelling me to write this blog post…

So whats have apple been up to is quiet imminent from last night(call it day) show.Although we all were expecting apple to roll out new completely redesigned iPhone 5 with NFC, Tear drop design and much more…….  duh .. it isn’t true anymore….Now we have iPhone 4s….After looking it critically its seems Apple has done nice job .   and all i5 xpectors may ask ” Y ” ?????

Well there are 2 reasons , as quoted in cnet, In order to retain supremacy in mobile device market its quiet clear that iPhone 5 at this time of year won’t do much good , since year is coming to an end ,  new idevice means complete waste of money because since it’ll become outdated in no more than 6 months…..second no new tech innovation is associated with i4s , believe it or not voice recognition is there n market for quiet some time now along with 8mp camera ..(don’t loose hope , as with al other products new voice recognition is completely redesigned by apple to make it go with idevice ) so dubbing this iPhone as i5 won’t make it stand higher in competition with other giants such as S2  , droid Bionic (although they are no giants after i4s launch :-p :-p  ).

Much about apple critically , now apple fanboy inside is wrestles about quoting some of the cool new features ..

Lets start : Best things about I4s launch is its accompanied by iCloud, Siri, IOS 5 :p :p

talking about SIRI :  you may have been in conversation with your mobile device thinking it to be  dumb ???? NOw see SIRI in action ……….. here  … OMG ,,  so u feel same awesomeness in new voice assistant feature in i4s ??   MAn… u can talk with with ur i device as u were conversing with another guy around…..  its intuitiveness , intelligence and smartness has proved apple capability to completely transform any technology …. all of u would agree with me that its better than any smartphone out in the market( m sorry but i completely anti samsungist  :p :p )

Here’s what apple say ’bout it :

SIRI Your wish its command :Siri on iPhone 4S lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back. Siri is so easy to use and does so much, you’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it.

we can endlessly about siri (she has sexy voice :p) but lets turn our attention to iCloud :

Although iCloud has been in talks for quiet some time . but lets understand what does it mean to all of us

Well like conventional cloud sharing/storage applications it will provide 5GB of space to iOS 5 and Lion users. but thats not all about iCloud . Unlike conventional cloud sharing services it smartly syncs only that data that isn’t in all of your synced device. U’ll be in better position and would be able to use it wisely if u own all i device and MAC (:p) . Al your documents , files , music in one place + your apps purchased from app store . Here is elaborated version of all features as apple syas

  • iTunes Music and Apps on iCloud – Purchased music or downloaded apps on your iPad? That’s it, you do not have to purchase them again or download them or transfer them to your iPhone hereafter! With the iCloud pushing all your iTunes purchases and downloads to all other connected iDevices, everything magically appears on your iPhone or even on your Mac or PC! The perfect sync – called ‘push’ by Apple – makes sure every little thing that you want to be available on all your other Apple devices is available right on time!
  • Purchase History – One of the things that was unavailable for all users of iTunes library to buy songs or apps was this special feature – Purchase History. Now you can download that app you bought again and again by just getting to the Purchase History on your device. The icing on the cake is you can access this from any device no matter which one you used to buy the app or song on iTunes.
  • Photo Stream – Now, we think this is where iCloud’s usage would be felt deeply! People click photos oniPhones a lot. Transferring them to your Mac, or PC, or iPod Touch and other devices is going to be as easy as cinch because you do not have to do anything anymore thanks to iCloud! iCloud just pushes the photos to all your devices that are connected; makes it as simple as possible to transfer files throughout your devices.
  • Contacts, Bookmarks, Mail and Backup! – Of all the features that are hardest to sync, contacts, calendar,bookmarks and mail are the ones that usually take a lot of time to sync. In fact, most people with multiple devices from Apple usually don’t do this because it is time consuming. With iCloud coming in at the right time and making it possible to sync your bookmarks, contacts and even mail across all the devices, everything now just seems plain simple and easy!
The best thing i Like about it is idevice backup , with idevice syncing going wireless , iCloud make this task a charm by making available your idevice backup wherever you are , no matter with you’d your mac or pc
Coming over to hardware specs of new idevice :
Most notable upgrade under the hood is new apple a5 processor . As apple says 2X time faster that i4 and 7X improved graphics, what it does mean to average iPhone gamer with become clear only after its launch , but still features quoted by apple make it clear that this 2 core beast will improve iPhone experience and will make it a bliss using idevice.
Beefed up camera. Its 8Mp cam with sony Cmos sensor(as Appleinsider claims) and added custom f/2.4 aperture . it definitely improves iPhone capability as photography tool and as many dub it as iDslr (:p) Retina display along with 8mp camera definitely improves picture quality and Apple has quiet nicely described its awesomeness by quoting

The you-can’t-believe-it’s-on-a-phone camera

LAst but not the least  HD video recording ( full 1080 p)

this may not be new features , but clubbing it with sony cmos sensor , iPhones retina display and new custom aperture it is definitely icing on the cake.

There are many more features associated with new i4s , but keeping with time constraint i followed only notable features, MOre to come in next post . stay tuned .

iphone 4 unlock guide !!!!

Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 has been released today to make the unlock compatible with iOS 4.3.3 on iPhone 4 and 3GS, running on the old baseband.

It should be noted though that this release of Ultrasn0w is not a new unlock for iPhones with newer basebands, instead, it only fixes the compatibility issues on the existing devices, which are jailbroken (with preserved basebands: 01.59.00 / 04.26.08 / 05.11.07 / 05.12.01 / 05.13.04 / 06.15.00) on iOS 4.3.3.

For iPhone 3GS Only: How to Update iPhone 3GS to 06.15.00 Baseband for Unlock:
Ultrasn0w 1.2.x unlocking requires that your iPhone 3GS is jailbroken with 06.15.00 baseband.

Note: Updating iPhone 3GS baseband to iPad’s 06.15.00 might result in loss of GPS functionality.

Step 1: First up, you will have to jailbreak your iPhone 4 or 3GS on iOS 4.3.3 and preserve the old baseband using either PwnageTool on Mac, or Sn0wbreeze on Windows. Instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 using PwnageTool can be found here, and for Sn0wbreeze can be found here.

Step 2: Once you are done with the jailbreak, you can now unlock your iPhone on the supported basebands using Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 from Cydia. To do this:

  • Start “Cydia” on your iPhone.
  • Touch on “Manage” tab on the bottom.
  • Now touch on “Sources” as seen in the screenshot below:

4.2.1 Unlock

  • Touch on “Edit” and then on “Add”. You will be prompted to enter a url source as seen in the screenshot below. Type http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com” and touch on“Add Source” to add this repo if you haven’t already.

4.2.1 Unlock (1)

Cydia will now automatically update your sources by following a series of automated steps.

  • After installation is completed. Search for “ultrasn0w 1.2.3” in Cydia and install this application. This app will automatically unlock your iPhone so that you can use it with any carrier.

Untethered jailbreak for 4.3.3

The iPhone Dev Team has released updated version of both Redsn0w and Pwnage tool to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 untethered using i0n1c’s untethered exploit.

UPDATE: jailbreak for Verizon iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.8 is also available.

 three in a row!  Apple released iOS 4.3.3 on Wednesday, and once again the untethered jailbreak exploit that @i0n1c created for 4.3.1 still works.  That makes it an unprecedented three firmwares where the same userland exploit works.  We’re not exactly sure why Apple hasn’t fixed the hole yet, but we’re not complaining!

Today’s PwnageTool and redsn0w incorporate @i0n1c’s port to 4.3.3 (it’s ironic that such a long-lasting untether doesn’t even have an official name!).  It also of course uses geohot’s limera1n bootrom exploit to inject the jailbreak. The 4.3.3 untether works on all devices that actually support 4.3.3 except for the iPad2:

  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1
  • AppleTV2G (v4.3 8F202)

NOTE: Those of you who rely on a carrier unlock MUST STAY AWAY from Redsn0w and stock iOS 4.3.3 firmware. Instead use PwnageTool for Mac, or Sn0wbreeze for Windows.

Step 1: Download iOS 4.3.3 for your version of iOS device.

Step 2: Update/Restore to iOS 4.3.3 firmware using the IPSW file you just downloaded via iTunes 10.2.2.

Step 3: Start Redsn0w and point it to the official iOS 4.3.3 firmware file.

Jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 (2)

4.3.2 Untethered Jailbreak (2)

Step 4: Now select “Install Cydia” and click “Next”. Optionally (if available), you can also select any other option you like.

4.3.2 Untethered Jailbreak (3)

Step 5: Now make sure your device is both OFF and PLUGGED IN to the computer before you click “Next”.

4.3.2 Untethered Jailbreak (4)

At this stage you will be presented with a screen where you will be guided on how to enter DFU mode. Quickly hold “Power” button and then while holding the “Power” button, you will now have to hold “Home” button too. Now after few seconds release “Power” button but keep holding “Home” button until installation begins.

4.3.2 Untethered Jailbreak (5)

Step 6: Sit back and enjoy while Redsn0w does the rest for you. Once done, your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will restart automatically and you will find it fully jailbroken (untethered) on the latest iOS 4.3.3 firmware.
