iOS 4.3.3 SHSH Blobs Now Visible on Cydia

May 10, 2011 — by Farrukh Zafar0


Well, the disappearance of saved SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella in Cydia is a common problem for many of our jailbreaking friends. Well, as long as there ain’t a new version of iOS firmware available from Apple, this problem could be waved goodbye, because Cydia is now showing all iOS SHSH blobs saved up to iOS 4.3.3 – the latest iOS firmware.

If you’ve opened Cydia today, you would notice that if you earlier saved your SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.1, iOS 4.3.2, and iOS 4.3.3, you will now find them in the top banner at Cydia’s homepage on your iOS device.

May 9, 2011 — by Farrukh Zafar2


Footprints for iPhone and iPadOkay, the locationgate fiasco may have been over for iPhone, as Apple has fixed the location tracking issue in the new iOS 4.3.3 version, there comes a new application on the iOS scene called ‘Footprints’, that does all the tracking, but with the user’s permission, which makes it the righteous app.

The app has been made for both iPhone and iPad, which can be used by installing it on the iOS device you wish to track, and then spying upon that device from any other iOS device.

iPhone Tip: How To Move Multiple Icons All At Once (Jailbreak Required)

May 9, 2011 — by Simon Ng8


It is very annoying when you want to move several icons on your springboard to another page. That’s because you have to move them one by one. Apple allows you to use iTunes to move multiple icons across pages. But how can you do that on iPhone?

Thanks to Marawan Alwaraki for sending us the tip and reminding us a hack called MultiIconMover. As the name suggests, it’s a hack that lets you move several springboard icons to different page at one time.

You can find the hack in cydia. After installing the hack, all you need to do is:


Here’s the Final Evidence that ‘Locationgate’ Has Been Fixed in iOS 4.3.3

May 8, 2011 — by Farrukh Zafar4


It’s been the talk of the town, the location tracking issue and the backlash on Apple Inc. As we told you earlier that the new version of iOS firmware 4.3.3 has fixed the locationgate issue, there was always a need to re-confirm and inspect Apple’s claims. Our technology comrades at PCMag have done the scrutiny and found out that the locationgate issue has really been fixed.

According to Apple’s claims the gigantic log file formed by iDevices holding a database of locations was nothing but a bug. So PCMag went the detective way, using a couple of tech-savvy methods which are discussed below.


iPad Browser Alternatives: Terra, Atomic and 360 Web Browser

May 8, 2011 — by RG. Chew2


Safari has always been the default browser on my iPhone and iPad. That is because I didn’t really do much heavy browsing on my mobile devices, until now. Since the iOS Titans at Cupertino relaxed rules on browsers in 2009, a BUNCH of browsers have graced the App Store. We are going to weigh in on this opinion emporium of browsers.

Let me just set the record straight on what I come to expect from a browser.


Tutorial: How To Jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 for iPhone Using Redsn0w

May 7, 2011 — by Simon Ng18

A few hours ago, the iPhone Dev team released an update for redsn0w. You can now jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 for most iOS devices including iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Most importantly, it supports untethered jailbreak.

As usual, we’ll walk you through the whole jailbreak process with this tutorial post. But before we begin, let us highlight several points:

  • This guide is intended to jailbreaking iPhone 4 and 3GS running iOS 4.3.3. But it should also work for iPad (1st generation) and iPod touch (3G/4G). Just make sure you download the correct firmware.
  • If you depend on ultrasn0w unlocking, please stay away from jailbreaking with redsn0w. You should use PwnageTool instead that lets you create a custom IPSW while preserving the baseband version. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, just stay with your current iOS version. Don’t upgrade to 4.3.3, otherwise, you’ll lose the unlock.
  • Make sure you use iTunes 10.2 or up for the jailbreak. As usual, backup all your contacts, sms, photos, etc via iTunes before jailbreaking.
  • Disclaimer: Jailbreaking may void your warranty of iPhone. Again, jailbreak it at your own risk. There is no guarantee that this guide works on all iPhone devices.

Okay, let’s get started.

May 6, 2011 — by RG. Chew2


Instant Messaging (IM) has been around for a long time.  So it is then no surprise that there are a whole bunch of IM apps on the App Store today.  Theses apps integrate multi chat clients like MSN, Yahoo, Gtalk, ICQ, Facebook, and Jabber.  Most IM apps in the market sport functions such as the ability to send images, videos, voice and location.

Here we will compare 2 popular IM apps out there, IM+ and BeeJive.  We have selected these 2 because (1) They have been around so a long time and are synonymous with IM apps (2) They have maintained the highest pricing for IM apps of $9.99.  So if you are ready to splurge $9.99 for an IM Client, keep reading!

AppsiPhone Turns iPhone Into A Push-To-Talk Walkie-Talkie

May 6, 2011 — by Gaurav Kheterpal7


Voice Chat and Walkie Talkie applications are all the rage on Apple App Store these days. Last week, I reviewed CloudTalk Messenger, an iPhone app that lets you record a message and then choose Facebook/ Address Book contacts to whom this message should be sent. is similar except its UI resembles more like a push-to-talk walkie-talkie and it works only for people on your contact list.

The underlying concept behind and other similar apps is simple yet brilliant. Calls are intrusive and you’re never sure if the receiver is in a mood to talk or not. Text message are non-intrusive but it’s a hassle typing long messages. Apps such as combine the best of both worlds – you can record a note in your voice and the receiver is notified about it. The best part about is that it lets users send and receive free voice notes and free text messages.
