Today, August 25, 2010, Apple announced that they will be holding a music-based media event on September 1, 2010, much like they do every year. Here are some of the products we expect them to announce:
New touch-screen iPod shuffle
New iPod touch with front-facing (and possibly back-facing) camera to allow for use with Face Time over WiFi (to be used with email addresses as opposed to phone numbers), Retina Display, 1Gz processor (with maybe 512MB RAM), and better battery life.
iOS4 for iPad
iTV (revamped Apple TV) with it’s own App Store and might be the size of the iPhone 4 – Price: $99 USD
Sorry, no Verizon iPhone will be announced in September. If there will be one, it will be announced in January (most likely). Again, these are all just rumors so nothing is certain for sure, but these products will be very likely to be announced.

As we all know, Apple decided to come out with their own version of multitasking in iOS4. The problem is that it’s not “true” multitasking. In this tutorial, I will explain how to use Apple’s multitasking bar with Backgrounder. This disables Apple’s multitasking and replaces it with Backgrounder’s multitasking.
This is great for older iDevices with 128MB RAM (iPod touch 1G, iPod touch 2G, iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G) because they don’t support Apple’s multitasking but it will still work perfectly using this method.
1. Open Cydia and download Backgrounder 2. Open Backgrounder and go to Global. Make sure “Backgrounder” is checked as ‘Backgrounding Method’ and “Fall Back to Native” is TURNED OFF
3. SSH into the directory: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app 4. Locate the N72AP.plist (or N82AP.plist) 5. Backup the .plist file. Edit your .plist in any text editing software and add the following key after <dict> and before </dict>:
6. Copy the newly edited .plist file back to the directory on your iDevice (OR save it if you edited it straight from your SSH client) and REBOOT. 7. Open Cydia and download a package, “Remove Recents”. 8. Respring (or reboot if you don’t know how to respring).
Today, July 10, 2010, George Hotz (aka Geohot) released a blog post with proof that he has jailbroken the iPhone 4 with a program he’s made called limera1n. Currently, there has been no ETA. Here’s a picture for proof:
