The iPhone is once again free! Following the not so hopeful jailbreak for iPhone v1.1.1 yesterday by a non-Dev Team (possibly called the ‘Elite’ iPhone Team), we now have one that does a much better job of breaking free the Apple iPhone firmware v1.1.1.
However, before I go on to summarise this new v1.1.1 unlocking method
there is one bad news… this new hack is not applicable to those who used anySIM or iUnlock to unlock your iphone, if you do use it, it will brick your iPhone! (<–See update at the bottom) For everyone who used hacks like TurboSIM, IPSF Paid solution, etc… you will be able to use it.
The screenshot above shows exactly what we in the UK have been waiting for, the Sony Ericsson K850i! Indeed it does say ‘out of stock’, but actually, it hasn’t even launched nor has it arrived the shops yet, the SE K850i is only available on pre-order at the moment. Just as we had expected in one of our previous posts on latest uk mobile arrivals, it’s about time the K850i status got updated.
Based on the limited information on pricing, we can see the much awaited for Sony Ericsson K850i, in other words, the first SE 5-megapixel phone does not come at a cheap price, read on to find out the pricing…
Have a look at what someone (presumably an Apple fan) decided to do with their Apple G4 tower after it failed to be of anymore use at their computer desk. It is definitely more useful now
The battle between Apple and hackers continue, while the hackers have now come up with a way to downgrade your iPhone back to 1.0.2. It isn’t all all too bright, this new hack doesn’t help you ‘re-unlock’ your iPhone, which means those who have got their phones unlocked and upgraded to v1.1.1 will still need to be activated by the appropriate sims… Nevertheless this hack does partly bring your phone back to life by allowing it to use third-party applications and yes WiFi too We’ll definitely keep you updated with the latest news on this spotlight issue, as for now check out a demonstration video after the break to see how to get your iPhone apps working again.
Here’s another update on BitLet.org, we’ve seen this site renew itself so much recently and I have to say its recent function update does really increase the convenience of sharing files on BT.
This new function on BitLet.org gives users the ability to directly create torrent files without the hassle of requiring a software / client on your own pc. What’s more, BitLet now gives you the option to input a tracker you would like to use and once your torrent file is ready, its well on its way to be directly submitted onto the web.
I’m sure this all sounds very confusing, I hope my screenshots below will be more understandable.
The default tracker is http://open.tracker.thepiratebay.org/announce but that can easily be changed.
If you have been reading our post from yesterday regarding the latest Apple iPhone firmware v1.1.1 update you will know that there has been an ongoing debate about whether iPhones which had been unlocked for use with non-AT&T sims will still work after this recent software update.
Well, up til this moment, after lots of testing with various sims and many attempts to re-activate, many iPhone readers and experts now believe that Apple has managed to create a software update that is AnySim and iPhone Sim Free proof!? There is now also a video uploaded in Gizmodo, this video demonstrates the whole process of updating the software on an iPhone Sim Free unlocked iPhone. The verdict is… after software update, the activate iphone screen crops up and unless you have a valid AT&T sim & contract, it won’t be possible to activate it.
