    Upgrading the wife to iOS7...start with Beta 6?

    So after playing with my 4S on iOS7, my wife kinda wants it now. My buddy has already registered her UDID for me, but the next question is where should I start? I remember reading that Beta 6 was a very small update...if I download the IPSW and shift-restore to it, will that do the trick, or...

    Google Chrome adds jailbreak detection

    So, I noticed since updating Google Chrome it constantly crashes despite reboots, and reinstalling... ...then I see this on Twitter today: saurik: Sigh. @googlechrome added untested jailbreak-specific code on iOS; if you have "send crash reports" off, it crashes. https://t.co/HyJnDmqezg Just...

    How evasi0n works (and why it's so impressive)

    So, I'm not a super tech savvy guy, but I've always tried to get a general idea of how previous jailbreaks have worked, whether it was the PDF rendering bug in jailbreakme, or the ever important bootrom level limera1n exploit. With the release of evasi0n though, the evad3rs have totally...

    Fake "SBSettings" app hits App Store....

    This was posted by Big Boss over on Twitter...seems there's a phony alarm clock app now on the App Store called SBSettings. Jailbreakers have loved this tweak for years, but the real one is, and will ALWAYS be available on Cydia. The sad thing is the screen shots show the ACTUAL jailbreak...

    We love you, Bennyboy!

    I don't want to air Benny's businesss on the board, but I know he's going through some really tough family stuff right now, and has to travel back home to Italy to take care of things. I know he considers EIC a home away from home, so I thought it would be nice to have this "love thread"...

    Kakaotalk: 5.1 exploit?

    I follow a bunch of major players in the JB scene, and a few days ago @i0n1c posted a couple of cryptic tweets (Tweet 1, Tweet 2) urging iPhone users to download version 2.8.8 of the Kakaotalk Messenger app in the App Store before Apple removes it. As of this post, it's still available. He...

    3G issue: ChinaMobile to T-Mobile SNAFU...

    I post on another (iPhone unrelated) board, and one of my buddies has an issue. A big issue. Here's his quoted post: "I've got a 2nd gen iPhone I bought in China in 2008. Therefore, it was jailbroken and unlocked to run on ChinaMobile. When I moved back to the states 1.5 years ago, I just...

    Deleting a plist...bad news?

    In pointing out biteSMS's "Hide Contact" feature to another forum member, I realized that I had forgotten my own password. After checking around online, I found a possible solution: delete the biteSMS plist in /var/mobile/Library/preferences. Is this a bad suggestion, or will it work? I've...

    People installing apps on your phone: Why it's NOT cool.

    So, if you didn't know, my wife happens to be a doctor, and there are different drug reps coming in and out all day. One of them noticed my wife's iPhone, and started asking her about her jailbreak: Which jailbreak did you use, what firmware are you on, etc. My wife just told him the truth...

    Bands you wish you coulda seen live...

    The recent "Best Concert You've Been To" thread got me thinking about all those performers I was either too young (or not even conceived yet) to see, or just didn't catch in time (for whatever reason). Curious to hear y'alls input...we sure got some varied tastes around here. My top five, in no...

    Barrel Update 1.2

    Just when I thought this app couldn't get any cooler with the last update (which added Page Slide Up & Down), the developer has successfuly blown my mind with his newest tweak: Curl and Roll Away. It's hard to describe, but when you swipe, all your icons "roll" over as they form into a "wheel"...

    Miracle at the Apple Store!

    So, I watched a movie on my 13 day old 13" MacBook Pro last night, closed it up, and went to bed. Today, I open it up, and to my dismay, there's a HUGE crack running up the left side of the screen. I immediately questioned my wife and three year old son, both of whom denied touching it. You can...
