Apple SURPRISES us again! iOS 4 issues! iBooks now available!

iOS 4 was made available to Public at 10:10 AM PST.

But, like always, Apple has surprised us again, though in a negative manner.

While Installing iOS 4, “Backing up…” your iPhone/iPod touch is COMPULSORY. However, many people around the world are reporting that, their iTunes is stuck at “Backing up…” and it shows them 72 Hours to Back up. This is highly unacceptable. Some People seems to look into the matter and want to wait until this “Backing up….” is over. Whereas, some have left their hopes and will wait until Apple looks into the matter and solves the Problem.

Then, again, iOS 4 Update doesn’t have “Game Center” Application that WAS present in iOS 4 Golden Master version. Reason is unknown for as to WHY Apple removed Game Center from OS.

Unexpectedly, Apple tells that this iOS 4 version is same as that of Golden Master version, however, when i tried to “Jailbreak” this iOS with Redsn0w 0.9.5, it failed to process the .IPSW file.

This proves it’s NOT the same OS.

iBooks is available in App Store now.

**UPDATE**

iOS 4 has been Jailbreaked!!!

Redsn0w Beta 5, 1 is working with iOS 4 (Official). When it asks for the .IPSW file, just feed in the ORIGINAL GOLDEN MASTER (GM) .IPSW file. It will continue to Jailbreak your Device and enable Multitasking and Homescreen Wallpapers!

While using Redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta 5,2, it crashed in between the Procedure.

iPhone OS 4.0 for Original iPhone (2G)? All features of iPhone OS 4.0 coming to iPhone 3G (Multitasking!)?

When iPhone OS 4 was announced, and we got to hear some of the new features coming, there was excitement. Then disapointment, as we learned only the iPhone 3GS and the newer, unreleased iPhones would get all the features. The jailbreak community quickly learned that some of the missing features could be added to the iPhone 3G, by manipulating  a plist file to enable them. With no OS 4 firmware being made for the original iPhone hardware, it’s not as simple as that to get the OS 4 on the aging device.

A European hacking team calling themselves “Fittingstorm”, claim to be working on building a custom iPhone OS 4 for the original iPhone. Apparently, they have had some crude success, but are having some trouble with connectivity for phone, data, and wifi.

Here is what their Blog has to say, about their Project:

…we are going to a new challenge Apple’s smartphone, take the next firmware 4.0 out in June on the old version of the smartphone which Apple decided not to publish it. To do this we studied the very advent of the jailbreak and the people who have worked, and in particular we have focused on PwangeTool tool that lets you insert a custom firmware jailbreak devices, and from there gave rise to our idea. Of course what we’re trying to do is something much more complex because there is no official firmware 4.0 for iphone 2g, and our task will be to rewrite those parts of code to adapt it to the device. A project long enough but after just one week after the beta release has led to exciting results, we have created a tool that looks a lot like PwangeTool and loading a custom firmware that 3 of us are rewriting part, starting from Beta 1. The result was deich after a day of hard work that was performed on 4.0 firmware 2g device but with many problems, in fact almost nothing worked. Since then many things have improved, we refer to the next page for details.

iPhone 2G running iPhone Os 4.0

iPhone 2G running iPhone Os 4.0

So, is this real, or just another bunch of kids pulling our leg? It’s hard to say, until we see some proof of concept, at the least. They have not released anything, other then what they say is their progress, on their blog. Even if they do get this to work, will it be usable? I know iPhone OS 3 is pretty laggy on the original iPhone, so I can only imagine it being even worse with the new OS. I’m sure this is why Apple has decided not to release iPhone OS 4 for the iPhone “EDGE”.

Only Question striking my mind is that, if they are able to run ALL FEATURES OF IPHONE OS 4.0 on IPHONE 3G and IPHONE 2G (Original iPhone), WILL THEY BE ABLE TO DO IT ON iPOD TOUCH 2G?

(As being an owner of iPod touch 2nd Generation)

Till then, LETS KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED! 😀

iTunes 9.1.1 Released!

Today Apple released the latest update to iTunes, version 9.1.1.

The update mostly delivers small bug fixes and various enhancements. The update also addresses performance and stability of iTunes, which is likely the largest fix overall.

iTunes 9.1.1 comes with several improvements and fixes, including:

•Addresses a conflict with some third-party software which may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit
•Addresses issues with converting songs to 128 kbps AAC while syncing
Addresses other issues that improve stability and performance
•The iTunes update is available on Apple’s website or through Software Update on Mac/PC.

Note: As usual, if your iPhone is jailbroken or hacked in any way, I would avoid the iTunes 9.1.1 update until further notice.

Wireless Syncing for iPod touch/iPhone/iPad! It’s AWESOME! *UPDATED*

Basically, since its initial launch, one of the most annoying things about the iPod (and now iPhone, iPad, etc) is that you have to plug it into your computer via USB to sync it. Sure, this also allows you to recharge your device, but I’d love to say, charge it in a holder next to my bed (since I also use it as an alarm) and wirelessly sync it over WiFi. A new app allows you to do that. Too bad it’s likely to be rejected.

As you can see in the video below, WiFi Sync allows you to do exactly what the name promises. Once you complete a few steps to authenticate your iPod/iPhone and then your computer, you can begin syncing wirelessly. It just works. The problem, of course, that Apple is likely to have with it is unauthorized interaction with their software, iTunes.

Undoubtedly, if Apple wanted to include such a feature in iPod touches/iPhones/iPads they would have already. It would seem that technology isn’t an issue, but there may be other things at play, such as security, and speed. While security is debatable, speed is definitely a big plus for using USB (2.0) versus WiFi as one transfers data at nearly 500 Mbps, while the other would transfer data at just a fraction of that. (Obviously it would vary based on technology — 802.11n versus 802.11g, etc — and distance from the router.)

Something else to think about: when Apple inevitably does move iTunes to the cloud, syncing their devices wirelessly will be pretty much a necessity. Perhaps Apple is just waiting for that and enjoying the big USB bandwidth until then.

New Video with more detailed Syncing:

Lucky Cat enjoyes Apple’s iPad.

This is really a funny video. I found it on YouTube. It shows how a Cat, Iggy, Explores the new Technology!
It’s a – MUST WATCH!
Cat is totally innocent and looks completely confused. Or maybe it’s his Smartness! 🙂

[myPSN 3.4] PlayStation Network Application for iPhone.

This App was introduced to App Store, a long ago. But because of “Poor User Interface” it was not able to Facinate PSN Users.
myPSN is an App created by Daniel Leivers that allows iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users to Connect to their PSN ID.
It enables a person to be more flexible with his PSN Account.
You can see “Which of your Friends/Buddies are Online and Playing ‘Which’ Game.”
It allows a Person to Compare Trophies with your Buddies on your iDevice!
Yesterday this remarkable App got an Update, IMPROVING THE USER INTERFACE.
Though this App is “Read Only”.
This means that, Neither You can send messages to your Friends nor have a “Text Chat” with them. It’s only to know about Trophies and Online Buddies- INSTANTLY!
Check out the ScreenShots attached for the “NEW USER INTERFACE!”

As for me it is worth every penny of it.
You can download the Latest Version (3.4) for myPSN on App Store for 1.99$

myPSN ID is “Amod”.
You can add me anytime! 😀
