I’m sure most of you are fully aware of the JailbreakMe 3.0 situation at this point, and as mentioned in my previous update, Comex still has to fix unionfs and tie up a couple of other loose ends before JailbreakMe 3.0 makes its first public appearance. But apparently if he cannot get his unionfs issues straightened out by tomorrow, he will just cut it from the Jailbreak, in which case Cydia will have to manage that -either way, we can rule out a Friday release date: But there’s a silver lining, once Comex works all of the issues with JailbreakMe
Jan-Michael Cart has produced some amazing iOS 5 concepts (pre-WWDC 2011) and recently he has put together a very impressive iMessage for Mac OS X Lion concept. Hopefully Apple decides to incorporate this in the final release of Lion because it’s pretty simple — the exact same proprietary protocol used in iMessage on iOS devices could be applied to Lion and that’s what his concept video demos. iMessage will also be able to sync all conversations and messages across your iMessage enabled devices!
Apple has just pushed out the 10.6.8 Snow Leopard update! Mac OS X 10.6.8 prepares Macs users for the Lion upgrade, which will take place through the Mac App Store, and it fixes some minor bugs relating to Preview. The update also improves IPv6 and VPN support – thankfully it also removes and protects against all known variants of Mac Defender.
JailbreakMe 3.0: the elusive Jailbreak that seems to be the only hope for an iPad 2 Jailbreak (according to our sources, it will Jailbreak all iDevices from 4.2.1-4.3.3). Initially, PaulPols claimed to have spoken with Comex and Paul informed us via twitter that JailbreakMe 3.0 would most likely be released on June 22nd 2011 (yesterday). I’m sure you’re all aware that events didn’t pan out as PaulPols predicted and here’s what he said in response to two questions on twitter:
As promised, I will keep my readers updated on the progress of JailbreakMe 3.0 every step of the way (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, start here). Comex has once again openly tweeted about the status of his upcoming Jailbreak, JailbreakMe 3.0 (which will cover every device from 4.2.1-4.3.3):
iOS 5 was introduced just weeks ago and with it came Notification Center! Up until now, everyone has assumed that Apple will be the only source for Notification Center widgets (there are currently two, Stocks and Weather). A recently uncovered patent filed by Apple in 2007 makes Apple’s intentions crystal clear:
As most of you already know, Apple is the king of patents and is constantly filing new patents – well, Apple filed one back in 2007 that specifically relates to multitouch actions in a stationary application.
As with everything in life, the big players in the Jailbreak community (MuscleNerd, p0sixninja and chpwn) are in a fight (on twitter) about the ETAs for the iPad 2, iOS 5 and iPhone 5 Jailbreaks. It all started with p0sixninja claiming that he could demo the iPhone 5 Jailbreak (with out it even being announced yet) – after that, it was fair game to rag on p0sixninja for other things such as his ETA on the iPad 2 Jailbreak and his other “pre-ETAs months in advance”:
One update after another, the news keeps flooding in about JailbreakMe 3.0 (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, start here)! It’s easy for anyone to determine that progress on the revolutionary JailbreakMe 3.0 is coming along because, Comex and Musclenerd wouldn’t openly talk about it on Twitter unless it was close to its big debut.
