Yes! This is TRUE! The new iOS 4 released about 5 hours ago, has been Jailbroken already and i am running a Jailbroken iPod touch 2G with Multitasking and Home Screen Wallpapers!
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.
Therefore, i was unable to activate Battery Percentage!
Some people are facing problems with “iBooks App for iPhone” after using RedSn0w Beta, including myself.
All that you need to do, is download the latest (Redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta 5,4) and run it again. JUST UN-TICK THE ‘CYDIA’ OPTION. And you’re done!
Other Alternatives such as Sn0wbreeze and PwnageTool (Mac Only) are also out.
Redsn0w 0.9.5 Betas ONLY WORKS WITH iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G.
(Basically for enabling Multitasking and Home Screen Wallpapers).
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.
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.
