Here’s the video of JailBreakMe on an iPhone 4 (faster!)

Feel free to ask some questions in the comments. And yes, FaceTime still works. 

Update: We’ve been told by Chronic Dev-Team that FaceTime and MMS may not work properly on some devices. To fix, do a fresh restore and re-jailbreak — that may do the trick. Let us know. 

Update 2x: We’ve installed the jailbreak on 4 iPhone 4s and both FaceTime and MMS still work flawlessly on all devices. 

Update 3x: One of our devices lost FaceTime and MMS after restarting. 

Update 4x: An official fix for the FaceTime and MMS issues is now available, and a compatible carrier unlock will reportedly become available in 48 hours.  

iOS Jailbreak via Mobile Safari is here

The iPhone Dev Team (Comex) has just unleashed a new jailbreak tool for all iOS devices and it’s done through Mobile Safari! Head to http://www.jailbreakme.com from Safari on your iDevice and get going! This is the “JailBreakMe 2.0 star” jailbreak for this into all the codewords. 


The servers are definitely stumped right now so try http://www.jailbreakme.modmyi.com — that worked for us. 

We can verify that this jailbreak is meant to run on all iOS devices including iPad and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0 and 4.01. It will not work on iOS devices running iOS 4.1 beta. 

Update: We’ve got video on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3G!

iPhone sees biggest Web market share gain ever in July

Some good news from the folks at NetApplications for Apple.  It turns out that the iPhone gained significant market share in July.

  • iPhone posted its largest single-month usage gain ever in July. “What antenna problems?!”
  • Global usage share jumped from .59% to June to .7% in July. (In comparison, the May to June share was essentially flat)  
  • The iPhone grew usage share at over twice the pace of Android. 


Ruh Roh! Rival smartphone antenna performance videos vanish from Apple.com

Yeah… not really much to say, except that Apple’s videos about their competitors antenna performance have seemed to pull a Criss Angel, and disappear from the company’s website. It probably has to do with their unhappy rivals or maybe they want to pull Antennagate back into the spotlight for another round of press.

You can still try to find a glimpse of the videos at their official YouTube channel here

The magnet touch – essential kitchen iPad accessory…

Got to love this and do hope the UK design company sell a boatload of these to the millions of iPad buyers out there — introducing the FridgePad from Woodford Design.

In their own words, “The FridgePad magnetically mounts your iPad to your kitchen fridge so it’s at the heart of your home and in a perfect location for all the family to use.

“The FridgePad can be used in landscape or portrait mode, allows the iPad to be simply clipped in and out for fast access and provides a great safe and secure place to store your iPad.

“The FridgePad is an accessory to make the iPad work better for you. This really is one of those products that once you have tried it you’ll love it.”

We also like that the company appears committed to good quality product design, where it writes, “Woodford Design wanted to take iPad accessories to the next level of quality, so the FridgePad is more than just a fridge magnet. It has been cast and machined out of a solid chunk of high quality aluminium and will be offered in a luxurious silver finish./”
