A new jailbreak tweak for all those who like listening to music using their iPhone has been recently released on Cydia. It enables an equalizer on your device and allows to create presets for different music types stored on your iPhone. This tweak is called EqualizerEverywhere and I must admit, it is very intuitive and easy-to-use.

equalizer tweak 500x326 EqualizerEverywhere: Jailbreak Tweak for Music Lovers

EqualizerEverywhere is a recently released jailbreak tweak that makes it possible to create and activate custom equalizer presets on the fly. If you’re someone who listens to a variety of different audio types on the iPhone, and you’re looking for a way to customize sound based on the type of audio, this is a tweak that you should definitely investigate.

Once you download and install the tweak, you will notice a new section in the Setting app, where you can adjust EqualizerEverywhere and make it do what you want.

It should be noted, however, that this tweak has one drawback. This drawback is its price, which is $3.00. Still, I will certainly recommend music lovers to purchase this tweak.

A3 tweaks, a group of hackers behind Auxo, a tweak that allowed to extend the functionality of the app switcher in iOS 5 and iOS 6, has announced the Auxo 2 -- an updated jailbreak tweak compatible with iOS 7. Take a look.


In case you don’t know, this tweak is capable of adding music controls, Settings menu toggles and other items to your app switcher in order to make it more intuitive, efficient and functional.

According to iDownloadBlog,

We first saw evidence of Auxo 2 at the beginning of the month, when the group’s UI designer Sentry posted a pair of 6-second video clips teasing some of the tweak’s features. And today, a much longer trailer has been posted.

Auxo 2 is expected to be released very soon -- on April 2nd. Without a doubt, it will be available on Cydia. Well, that’s all I can tell you at the moment. Stay tuned for more news on the topic.

redsn0w 0912b2 main 325x400 RedSn0w 0.9.12b2: minor update and bugfixes

The iPhone Dev-Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.12b2. New version has some bugfixes and additional question about jailbreak mode for A4 devices.

Redsn0w allows owners of A4+earlier devices to install rocky-racoon two different ways:

  • Backup/restore method similar to Absinthe and cinject.
  • Traditional limera1n-based ramdisk install. It is much faster, especially for users with lot’s music, movies, apps on the device.

Redsn0w 0.9.12b2 will ask owners of iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad 1 what jailbreak mode they would like to use.

redsn0w0912b2 499x318 RedSn0w 0.9.12b2: minor update and bugfixes

Starting with version 0.9.12b2, redsn0w will now explicitly ask users with limera1n-able devices whether they want to inject rocky-racoon using the DFU ramdisk method or the backup/restore method (the ramdisk method is better for those with lots of media on their device that would create very large backups, and it’s required for those with unactivated iPhones). If you’ll always want to use limera1n, you can select that in the Preferences pane. It also fixes an iBooks issue on old-bootrom 3GS iPhones, and provides more useful error messages when things go wrong.

RedSn0w 0.9.12b2 supports untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak for all devices:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 1
  • iPad 2
  • new iPad 3
  • iPod Touch 3G
  • iPod Touch 4G

You can download RedSn0w 0.9.12b2 here.

The iPhone Dev-Team has released updates to RedSn0w and PwnageTool that bring support for the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak.

RedSn0w 0.9.12b1 supports untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak for all devices:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 1
  • iPad 2
  • new iPad 3
  • iPod Touch 3G
  • iPod Touch 4G

PwnageTool 5.1.1 allows to create custom firmware and preserve modem version for unlock with ultrasn0w or Gevey. PwnageTool 5.1.1 supports all A4 devices:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPad 1
  • iPod Touch 3G
  • iPod Touch 4G
  • Apple TV 2G

You can download RedSn0w 0.9.12b1 here and PwnageTool 5.1.1 here.

Official DevTeam comments:

redsn0w allows owners of A4+earlier devices to install rocky-racoon two different ways:

  • backup/restore method similar to Absinthe and cinject
  • its traditional limera1n-based ramdisk install. If you have a lot of media on your A4 device (music, movies, TV shows, etc), then the ramdisk method is preferrred because it avoids any possibility of later problems related to syncing to iCloud (including Photo Stream and Music Match). The ramdisk method is not available for A5 devices or later because limera1n can’t be used. If you’d like to use redsn0w’s ramdisk method, just be sure to put the A4 device in DFU or Recovery mode before starting redsn0w (otherwise it will immediately start to use the backup/restore method).

We’ve also added a new redsn0w feature specifically for those who got in on the SAM unlock: you can now include your SAM tickets as part of your initial ramdisk jailbreak of iPhone4 or earlier, or alternatively you can upload your SAM tickets to any device after its been jailbroken. redsn0w accepts either the individual SAM activation ticket plist file, or the entire zip file created by redsn0w’s “Backup” button. As usual, redsn0w continues to cover all of its previous jailbreaks and untethers (so redsn0w-0.9.12b1 covers everything from 5.1.1 all the way back to 4.1).

PwnageTool also avoids any possible sync issues, but again it applies only to A4+earlier devices. If you unlock your iPhone with ultrasn0w or a commercial method, you must use PwnageTool to avoid updating your baseband otherwise you’ll lose the unlock. PwnageTool will also jailbreak+untether the AppleTV2,1 5.0_2B206f (unless you customize the IPSW further, you’ll have just basic SSH access to the device).

pwned Jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S: latest news, updates and FAQ

The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak utilities are undergoing testing and polishing before the public release. According to ‘Dream Team’ member planetbeing:

We’re testing & fixing problems with the jb app (that @pimskeks finished the majority of at incredible speed). Still needs to be polished.

P0sixninja also tweeted it should not be much longer before the jailbreak gets released.

not much longer now

We hope to see the utilities soon, because more than a week ago there were tweetes that jailbreak should have been ready in few days.

iPhone Dev Team has posted a blog entry about upcoming public release. If you have iPad 2 or iPhone 4S go ahead and read it:

But we’re now near the final stages of testing the public version of the jailbreak.  Please allow time to clean up any remaining bugs in the jailbreak clients.Jailbreak programs:

To be as flexible as possible, the A5 version of the corona jailbreak will take multiple forms:

  • Chronic Dev have incorporated the overall flow into a GUI that runs on your Mac or PC.  The goal is for the GUI to be enough for most cases.
  • iPhone Dev have also incorporated the exact same flow into an alternative command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow.  Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors.  The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.
  • Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we’ll also incorporate it into the redsn0w GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too).  In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native Apple iTunes libraries — this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there.


The supported firmware versions will be:

  • iPhone4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and the “other” 5.0.1 (9A406)
  • iPad2: 5.0.1 (9A405)

iPhone4S owners looking to maximize their chances of achieving an eventual software-based carrier unlock should be staying at 5.0. Everyone else should be at 5.0.1.  If you’re an iPhone4S owner who already updated to 5.0.1, it’s too late to go back down to 5.0, but if you’re on 9A406 it is possible to downgrade the BB by going to the 9A405 version of 5.0.1 while the window is still open.


The overall flow used by the GUI and CLI to inject the A5 corona jailbreak has never been done before, and there may be unforeseen problems once it’s released to the public.  It’s very important for you to sync your data, photos, and music before attempting any version of this jailbreak.  We’ll be watching the comments section below for signs of any widespread problems, but please be aware that you jailbreak at your own risk!


As mentioned at the start of this post: when testing has shown most of the bugs have been fixed!

android market

This week Google has released a new version of its client app for Android Market, which will work on any smartphone running Android OS 1.6 or higher.

The company aims to facilitate the process of discovering new software and its purchase. That’s why new Android Market will have a Cover Flow-like style of app listings and include new categories like Widgets and Live Wallpapers, as currently the catalog is filled pretty much with these kinds of software. Besides that, app pages will now have more info and links to related content.

Some changes were made to the policy of software returns. If earlier user could take his money back in case he didn’t like the app he bought within 24 hours, now this time is shortened to 15 minutes.

As the number of Android devices continues to grow and it becomes hard for developers to make their apps hardware compatible with as many existing handsets as possible, Google presents its new solution:

“To make it easier for developers to distribute and manage their products, we will introduce support for device targeting based on screen sizes and densities, as well as on GL texture compression formats.”

Another important feature of new Android Market is a new limitation of app file size, which is now extended to 50 MB (earlier it was 25 MB). This is still 40 times smaller than the current limitation for iOS apps (2GB). This can be explained by the fact that iOS apps can be downloaded not only via its mobile client (like apps for Android), but also via iTunes, that can be connected to the Internet in any possible way and thus capable to download such amounts of information. Nevertheless, some developers pass this limitation by offering tiny apps for Android that can download necessary files (like music, textures, video) of any size after its purchase.

However, Google’s attempts to create a rival to an App Store still are not successful as they can be. AppleInsider has studied the subject and revealed that the Android’s openness has led to a number of cases when popular titles like Radiant were cracked to be used as illegal copies by “97% of players in Asia, 70% in Europe and 43% in North America”. That’s why most of developers like Rovio (which created Angry Birds) offer free versions of their apps to earn money from showing the ads. But that kind of income is not as profitable as offering paid apps, which makes iOS more attractive for developers than Android.

It was also noted that Android Market offers poor security for users, though this situation can be changed by cleaning up the store. At least, that was what the developer of DoubleTwist Jon Lech Johansen advised Google more than a half a year ago, but the company has not still made any steps in that direction.

firmware 31 Firmware 3.1 arrives September 17?

Playing with the latest beta software for iPhone, one of iH8sn0w employees (firmware 3.1 beta 3 jailbreak utility), found that the expiry date for latest firmware is September 18.

Firmware 3.1 will be probably released 1 or 2 days before the expiration of the beta. This means that Apple might perform a release during the Apple event in September. However this event is dedicated to the music, so we cannot be sure.

The only certain knowledge is that by the middle of next month we will see either 3.1 beta 4 or 3.1 release.
