Some people have being having problems with ultrasnOw, now Geohot has released his software unlock for the iphone 3GS. According to Geohot its a much cleaner and better alternative to ultrasnOw. Your iphone must be jailbroken and the software is available in cydia by adding source apt.geohot.com.
This is only for the iphone 3GS.
Push notification Activation patch hits cydia around two weeks ago. This patch was nicely packaged by iPhoneIL and released by iPhone Dev Team into Cydia. This allows people on unlock and jailbroken 2G iPhone to have push notification enabled on there Phones. There is however one major issue, has soon as you download any application with push notification from the App store, your iphone wont be able to recieve calls.
I have experienced this personally. I dont know if this happens because Apple is smart or there’s a bug with the Push fix patch. However, when you do remove the application you’ve downloaded from the App store, everthing is back to normal.
If anyone experience this same problem let us know through the comment section.
www.thebigboss.org wrote a piece not too long ago on the early release of a 3GS jailbreak. You can read about that, and the how to here. Though I was pretty excited when I first saw this, I was a little disappointed to see that it wasnt a full jailbreak. What does this mean exactly? Well, firstly it means that somethings, like Winterboard, do not currently work. This should be solved in a future release, of unknown time. So, before you execute the hack, make sure you are aware of what you can, and can’t do, with the jailbreak for 3GS!
I am sure many of you have seen some of the interesting ads that Microsoft started running. The ads are titled PC Hunters, and it usually shows some guy, or gal, looking to buy a computer of some type. There is almost always some sort of dig on the Apple products like “I’m just not hip enough to use a Mac, and I would rather have something that works.”
I always find these somewhat entertaining, and recently Apple decided to join the fray of advertising while poking fun at the Microsoft ads. The results are this:
Pretty funny stuff, but seriously. No crashes on the mac? That’s a huge joke right, because I have yet to own a mac or a pc that doesn’t crash.
