Famous hacker MuscleNerd has confirmed that iOS 7.0.4 is safe to update to for users who wait iOS 7 jailbreak and are already on iOS 7.

Those at 7.x waiting for JB, maybe treat 7.0.4 as exercise in restraint. Won’t affect JB if you slip up, but test your ability to avoid it!

…but for those enjoying the 6.x JB, avoid 7.0.4 . There’s no going back (always worth saying that for sake of JB newbies)

The last update we received about the possibility of iOS 7 jailbreak was in early October when Planetbeing tweeted, “We’re still working hard on the jailbreak. May have all the pieces at this point (but not certain yet).”

semi restore 500x387 Semi Restore Lets You Wipe Your iPhone Without Losing Your Jailbreak

Semi-Restore is a new solution for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users who want to wipe their device clean without losing their jailbreak.

Created by CoolStar, the process will restore your device running iOS 5.0 through 6.1.2 to near stock condition. It’s performed using a simple one click app that is available to download for Mac, Windows, and Ubuntu.

What this does do
● Uninstalls all Cydia packages
● Fixes host file issues
● Erases all user data
● Fixes permissions
● Fixes activation issues
● Fixes iMessage/Facetime issues
● Fixes Safe mode issues randomly appearing
● Reinstalls Cydia (in case it was deleted)

What this does not do
● Upgrade your iOS Version
● Downgrade your iOS Version
● Jailbreak your iOS Device
● Fix broken System Files

● SemiRestore supports Windows XP SP3 or higher, OS X 10.6 or higher, and Ubuntu 12.10 or higher (or the equivalent Linux).
● There may be a better way to fix your current problem. For example, to fix “Safe Mode” issues, you can just uninstall Mobile Substrate from Cydia.
● Like any other restore, make sure you backup your data if you want it later.
● Avoid using your iOS device or anything related to iTunes or XCode during the Semi-Restore. Why not actually go outside?
● This process can not and does not repair broken system files! Avoid all Siri Ports, as they are not only illegal (except for Spire on 5.0.1) but they also create problems and may potentially break system files (even Spire can cause this).
● Your device will respring or reboot several times during the Semi-Restore. This is perfectly normal, so don’t panic.

You can download Semi-Restore from official site here.

DisplayOut, is a a very powerful little jailbreak tweak that lets you output anything that’s on your iDevice’s screen to a TV. The folks over at iSpazio gave it a try today and unsurprisingly, it works just great with FaceTime.

As you’ll see in their video, it scales very well and besides the sound issues due to the iPhone’s limited connectivity (which could be worked around), it looks like a totally viable alternative to those entreprise video-conferencing solutions some companies are spending big dollars on these days.

cnet jailbreak CNet Video: HowTo Jailbreak iPhone and turn on FaceTime over 3G

CNet specialists will show how to jailbreak using jailbreakme.com and how to turn on FaceTime over 3G (out tutorial is available here):

FaceTime feature gives users the possibility to make  voice calls. Apple restricted this feature to Wi-Fi only. Today it became possible to use it over 3G!

facetime 3g 235x400 iPhone 4 FaceTime video call over 3G is now possible

Setup Instructions:

  1. Jailbreak your iPhone 4 via www.jailbreakme.com.
  2. Download and upgrade to the latest Cydia package.
  3. Open Cydia, Go to Manage then Sources.
  4. Click Sources, Edit then add: http://apt.modmyi.com
  5. Search for “My3G” — download, and install it. It costs $2.79. My3G makes Apps believe that they are on WiFi instead of 3G.
  6. Go through the Rock setup process with a username and password. Open My3G and leave all settings on the default.
  7. FaceTime should now work over 3G! — Make sure to “Forget” the WiFi network you are on (via iOS settings) if you want to test it.

We haven’t seen any difference between the 3G FaceTime call and a WiFi FaceTime call. The quality is very good.

Here’s a video demo:

Many users reported that the first version of JailbreakMe broke the FaceTime and MMS features. The DevTeam fixed the bug.

New JailbreakMe users should simply proceed normally. The new version will not remove FaceTime or MMS from the iPhone.

Users who already installed JailbreakMe can get an easy fix. They should simply run Cydia and upgrade to the latest software.

musclenerd MuscleNerd: iPhone 4 jailbreak+unlock not today

MuscleNerd, hacker from DevTeam, commented via twitter on recent rumors that universal jailbreak (all iPhones and all firmwares, including iPhone 4 and iOS 4.0.1) will be released today. The basic answer is no, there will be no jailbreak today.

Not to make it a daily thing, but since somehow people thought it would be today: the new JB+unlock won’t be out today

(there are issues with important apps like Facetime that need to be figured out…no sense releasing a half-broken JB)
