Thats right the new jailbreak for iOS4 and 4.0.1 for the iPhone 4 and other models is now here. It has been released by comex and is now one of the easiest jailbreaks there possibly is…..
1. On your iDevice, open Safari.
2. Go to JailbreakMe.com.
3. Slide to Jailbreak.
4. Wait a minute or so while it goes through it’s deal.
5. Enjoy a jailbroken iDevice.
Easy as that, this is the compatability list: Continue reading »

Intially the white iPhone was scheduled for release just after the black version but we never saw the release date. Apple then promised it for the second half of July, which once again we never saw happen, now Apple have announced that we will not be seeing the white iPhone till later on this year!
There is lots of rumours going round wondering why it has been delayed, no one is really sure but some say they cannot stop light leaking through the front of the screen and others say they are trying to solve the antenna issue. I would probably go with the colouring on the front causing the issue
This looks very promising, we have seen alot of tweets on twitter about it being nearly ready and I would say that by the looks of it they are nearly there!
I like the way he has 345 unread texts lol!
Over on at Apple they have released a new page on there website giving away free iPhone cases. Now for Apple to be doing something like this admits to me there is definately a problem with the iPhone 4 and they are trying to solve it with a case? Maybe it stops you shorting out the antenna or completely blocking it?
I’m not really to sure….. Anyway even if you have bought a case they will refund you! All you have to do is download the app from the appstore, fill in your details and pick a case.
I would go for a black case as the white ones end up going grey!
Apple have opened up a website discussing the iPhone 4 antenna issue, they start off by explaining that there is a weak spot on the iPhone 4 and you can make bars drop down. This is what they say:
The opposite of amplification, attenuation happens whenever a signal is obstructed. All antennas — including television, radio, GPS, and cellular antennas — can experience attenuation. And with most antennas, the density and composition of the human hand can cause attenuation to a greater degree than some other materials. On a mobile phone, signal loss typically occurs when your hand attenuates the most sensitive part of the antenna. In the photos and videos below, we demonstrate how different grips cause attenuation on many popular smartphones — including iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.1
Then they go onto show testing on all other phones claiming that you can do exactly the same thing with any make of phone. For me this is not good enough, Apple need to own up and say that there is a problem with some of the new iPhones. I say the word some as I know alot of people who have had no issues with the new iPhone what so ever
Today Apple have released a letter or statement if you like all about the iPhone 4 signal issue, they claim that the reason for the drop in signal is a fault in the formula they use to calculate signal. To fix this they are going to release an update for iOS4 to hopefully cure all signal trouble. They say
Upon investigation, we were stunned to find that the formula we use to calculate how many bars of signal strength to display is totally wrong. Our formula, in many instances, mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength. For example, we sometimes display 4 bars when we should be displaying as few as 2 bars. Users observing a drop of several bars when they grip their iPhone in a certain way are most likely in an area with very weak signal strength, but they don’t know it because we are erroneously displaying 4 or 5 bars. Their big drop in bars is because their high bars were never real in the first place.
So fingers crossed this will sort all the issues with the poor signal on the iPhone 4 and hopefully people will stop referring to it as a massive fail, after all it is the most successful product launch in the history of Apple
There has been alot of complaints about the new iPhone 4 and signal issues reportedly changing the way you hold it. Really all in all it seems like it is a bit of a design flaw having the aerial on the side as Apple apparently are having tons of complaints emailed to them. You may of seen in the news recently an email to Steve Jobs from an angry customer saying when he holds his iPhone a certain way he loses signal, Steve Jobs reply was “dont hold it like that”
Anyway, the fix that alot of people are doing and it seems to be working for around 50% of users is a simple case of re-seating their sim card. Apparently the sim tray that the sim card sits on does not make the micro sim sit perfectly and taking it out and re-seating the micro sim is seemingly helping alot of users.
The picture below points out the problem, macrumours reports that majority of the problems are from the metal contact on the micro sim touching the steel tray. Users over on their forums are using electrical tape to tape the sim tray metal side to stop such contact but are reporting mixed results. Surely Apple should of made the sim tray plastic?
Well the figures are out, not the most precise of figures but they will do. Apple claim they have sold 1.7 million iPhone 4′s in just a weekend which is absolutely crazy! Bare in mind this is with a shortage of stock and only available in limited countries, so if there was more stock the figure could of been even more.
Steve Jobs released this comment
“This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.”
By the looks of this video which was London’s Regent Street I would say that we dont have to long before we hear that they are completely sold out. We were told that near enough every shop that had the iPhone in stock had massive lines outside with people desperate to get there hands on the new iPhone
I would say by the looks of things already the iPhone 4 is going to be in short supply for a good couple of months and the sales figures must be astronomical, surely this has overtaken all previous releases?
Just a quick demo I cam across on youtube showing the amazing quality of this film, shame the camera does not stand still for more than a second! I am very impressed!
