iPhone Baseband 5.12.01 Exploit Found? Unlock On Its Way?

February 11, 2010 1 comment

So earlier today there was a little rumble in the unlock world,via Twitter, as a new exploit was rumored to be found for the new iPhone 3.1.3 firmware’s baseband 5.12. Sherif Hashim managed to crash the baseband, which in turn could possibly be used for an unlock.

A little while later MuscleNerd of the iPhone DevTeam, confirmed that it was a legit find.

What does all of this mean? Well, maybe an unlock for the early up graders of iPhone 3.1.3 that relied on the unlock and are now stuck. But, with the time it takes to actually develop it into an unlock, my guess is that no one will burn the exploit, and tip their hand to Apple this close to the release schedule for a new device and firmware. But, stranger things have happened.

iPhone’s Safari Is This Generation’s Internet Explorer 6

February 9, 2010 Leave a comment

Peter-Paul Koch has won international renown with his browser compatibility research and is the man with opinions about mobile web. Here is one of his opinions: mobile Safari is this generation’s Internet Explorer 6, and will be hated by future webdevs.

No matter how much better the iPhone/iPad/iPod might be as a mobile browsing experience, developing content that only works on those devices, ignores everything else, is a backward step.

The iPhone has become an obsession. If we don’t pay attention, we’ll have a mobile web that only works on the iPhone. And then we’ll have the real mobile web that wasn’t made by us and doesn’t give a shit about web standards and best practices. Worse, it seems web developers are happy with this state of affairs.

Mentioning Nokia is the mark of the rude boor. The man of discernment mentions the iPhone. And mentions it and mentions it and mentions it. And then mentions the iPad, to show he is open to non-iPhone devices. The bigger the better.

Peter-Paul notes that too many webdevs are concentrating on optimizing for MobileSafari , even though there are a lot more platforms out there, that they can work with. The same thing happened back in 2000, when Internet Explorer 6 was the most popular browser, but today webdevs from all around the world are trying to get rid of it once and for all.

Data Toggle: Kill iPhone Data Traffic Properly

February 9, 2010 Leave a comment

New day, new toggle in Cydia: Data toggle. This toggle, when it is off, it should kill the data connection entirely. 3G can be on and you will not be able to access your internet via your provider’s data connection. You will notice you get an IP address, but it is a bogus one that we assign (1.1.1.0).

In short, this solution sets a bogus IP address, (1.1.1.0) to your data adapter’s IP address. This seems to kill EDGE / 3G without any battery drain issues reported in using other methods such as entering a bad APN.

The only downside is that to reenable data, we have to kill commcenter which can freeze the device for up to 15 seconds. (Should come back to life after that though).

February 9, 2010 Leave a comment

Wallpaper* and Phaidon have made a name for themselves over the years for producing small but well crafted city guides. If you are anything like me, you sure don’t like to be seen with a city guide that shouts out TOURIST, and a pocket sized one would be just wonderful.

Well, Wallpaper* has developed their city guides into a line of iPhone apps that are as well designed as the guides themselves.There are 9 different apps for 9 different cities around the world, available in the appstore and each one costs $3.99. However, they are giving away for free the Berlin City guide so all you need is to grab your copy and book some tickets for Berlin. Also, if you are interested in a printed version, there are over 80 Wallpaper* City Guides are available to buy online from the Phaidon Store.

Google Gets A New UI For Their Mobile Search Engine

February 9, 2010 Leave a comment

Just a quick heads-up: Google enhanced their mobile search engine UI . It seems that they are following the same trend on the browser version as well as on the mobile version of the search engine and try to keep it as minimalistic as possible.
