To make this short and sweet, iH8sn0w, maker of the extremely popular jailbreak too, Sn0wbreeze, has announced a release date for Sn0wbreeze 2.0. It will be released Wednesday September 23, 2010. Here’s the devices it will jailbreak:
iPhone 2G — Works out the box
iPhone 3G — Works out the box
iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) — Requires you to be already jailbroken. (If you are the old bootrom on Spirit or Jailbreakme use Spirit2Pwn on http://repo.woowiz.net)

This new version is said to jailbreak iOS 3.1.x, 4.0, 4.0.1, and 4.1.
A new version of iReb is also said to be released. iREB is a tool for Windows and Mac that will bypass any errors while restoring to a custom IPSW in iTunes.
A jailbreak tutorial will be posted here as well as on our YouTube channel on Wednesday showing how to perform the jailbreak. We will also upload a video demonstrating how to jailbreak the iPod touch 4 & iPhone 4 when the exploits are released.

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).
The iPod Nano has received an update! It now comes in nine different colors, all with a glossy finish, reduced prices ($149 US for 8GB; $179 for 16GB), a new, integrated video camera (capable of taking still images as well as video) with effects, microphone, 2.2 inch screen, FM-Radio with tagging and live pause, Nike+iPod Support, as well as built-in speakers.
Apple has sent out invitations to their “Rock and Roll” event scheduled for September 9. The image above was included int he invitation. Most people would probably recognize the lyrics written on the invite to be a song by the Rolling Stones.
In the past, when Apple hosts this music themed event, they normally announce a new iPod version whether it be a new Shuffle, Nano, or iTouch. Recently, there have been news of resellers having a drop in stock volume for their iPods as well as news that Apple with discontinue all iPod SKUs (stock-keeping unit). Could this mean a fresh new face for the ever so popular iPods? Additionally, there has been reports (as well as pictures) of a new iPod Touch 3G having a camera as well as a microphone. No one knows for sure if this is fact or fiction but the reported pictures did seem believable. With this news, Apple might be releasing yet another iPod Touch (nearly one per year).
