Ever since the iPhone was originally released, rogue developers and Apple have been involved in a sort of cat and mouse chase. Each time Apple releases a new version of their iOS mobile platform, developers do everything they can to break the new founded security and allow for the installation of unapproved third party apps. While jailbreaking has gotten some negative attention due to its allowance of piracy, there are countless legitimate reasons to jailbreak your phone. In fact, for some, the ability to further customize and tweak the platform provided by jailbreaking is absolutely necessary.
Unfortunately, for quite some time now the iPhone 5, iPad mini and iOS 6 in general have yet to see a working jailbreak. Add this to the fact that iOS 6.1 has just hit the scene and you can see why many are weary of an update. Luckily, those delays have finally come to an end as a working untethered iOS 6/6.1 jailbreak is available now. Entitled Evasi0n, from the all new Evad3rs team, this jailbreak works with any and all devices running iOS 6 or 6.1 including the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, except for the third generation Apple TV.
At the time of this posting, servers hosting the Evasi0n files are being absolutely slammed which is virtually a given seeing how this is such a highly sought after release. To make matters even worse, many scammers have taken to the web to exploit these server issues by offering up fake iOS 6 jailbreaks. In lieu of this, it’s wise to only use the officially provided mirrors of Evasi0n found at www.evasi0n.com.
We’re currently jailbreaking our iOS 6 devices now and will report back with how it goes. If you get around to doing so yourself, feel free to let us know about it in the comments below.
It’s no secret that Research in Motion (RIM) has been going through some flack as of late. In fact, ever since Apple launched their first iPhone in June of 2007 effectively redefining the definition of a smartphone, RIM has been in trouble. Add to that the equally (if not more so) successful launch of Google’s Android and you can see why more and more business executive are ditching their BlackBerry handsets. But, despite the fact that RIM’s future has been called into question, they are still an $8 billion company depending on the day. In other words, they may be down, but they aren’t out.
If you’ve been paying attention you’ll know that RIM is looking to radically redefine their mobile OS with the launch of BlackBerry 10. Straying away from their previous offerings entirely, this new platform bears a much closer resemblance to Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android in the sense that it’s fully optimized for touch input. However, while BlackBerry 10 is shaping up to be a very capable mobile platform, it won’t stand a chance without proper third party developer support.
Palm’s HP’s webOS being a prime example of this.
Luckily, it looks as if RIM is off to a great start despite the platform still being about a month away from launching. According to the latest reports, RIM’s BlackBerry 10 has already received 15,000 app submissions just 2 days after the company began allowing developers to submit their apps. Of course, with both Android and iOS hovering right around 800,000 apps available for download, BlackBerry 10 still has quite a ways to go. But, if they can manage to gauge enough user interest in these apps third party developers may just stick around and continue flocking to the platform. Will this be enough to make BlackBerry 10 relevant in an already saturated market? Only time will tell.
The Web is going wild about a new super-smartphone code-named the Sony Yuga. If the rumours are true, this device will be a beast!
The top-of-the-range Sony smartphone is alleged to have a 5-inch 1080p screen, backed up with a Exynos 5 quad-core Samsung SOC and a world’s first of 3Gb of RAM and 128Gb of internal storage.
As if those groundbreaking specs weren’t enough, it may have a 16 megapixel camera, a 3000 mAh battery and be entirely waterproof!
In the UK, Sony has already started outselling HTC with its unique design and promotional tie-ins with the new James Bond movie. Should Sony decide to release a true market-leading Android device their profile should increase further, allowing them to close the gap with Samsung.
It just makes us wonder what on earth the Samsung Galaxy S4 may look like!
