Sparrow for iPhone gets push email with jailbreak tweak

Sparrow for iPhone was finally unleashed on the world a couple of days ago, but fans of the email client were disappointed to learn that a key piece of functionality had been left out: push support. That one feature was all that stopped Sparrow from being the perfect email client for the iPhone, and there’s no word on exactly when push is due to be supported. Good news: if you’ve jailbroken your device, then a simply tweak from Cydia enables push functionality in the app.

The new iPad may only have gone on sale hours ago, but already iOS hacking minds have turned to jailbreaking the third-generation slate, with several routes apparently showing promise.

Jailbreak Con 2012 revealed with iOS hacks aplenty

This year is the second year that the hacking community for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches has been so large that they needed a convention of their own to hold them all - Jailbreak Con 2012.

Tethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 available on non-A5 devices

Well, that was certainly quick. iOS 5.1 hasn’t even been with us for 24 hours, but already there’s a tethered jailbreak. It’s not all good news though: it’s only available for devices not running Apple’s A5. That means you won’t be able to get in on the action on the iPad 2, iPhone 4S, or “the new” iPad when it ships on March 16th.

Jailbreaking Is Not A Crime say hackers over DMCA changes

Jailbreaking Is Not A Crime say hackers over DMCA changes

An incoming end to exemptions for jailbreaking in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) has prompted protests from influential gadget-hack enthusiasts, asking the Library of Congress to make permanent the right to modify devices you own. Andrew "bunnie" Huang - who wrote Hacking the Xbox: An Introduction to Reverse Engineering after identifying the encryption key on the original Microsoft console in 2002, and who currently leads the hardware development at chumby - has leant his weight to the Jailbreaking Is Not A Crime campaign, with over 4,000 signatures from users who believe it should be up to them to decide what's fair use of their tech toys.

Tweet with Siri hack allows iPhone Twitter without typing

Tweet with Siri hack allows iPhone Twitter without typing

When you think about Siri, it's not something that before the iPhone 4S was released was really a big deal: speaking to your phone, your phone then doing what you told it to do. But now that Siri and iPhone 4S are married, everyone wants a piece of the action. Take for example the brand new and nearly released to the public Tweet with Siri, a hack which allows you to use Siri to add a Twitter status on your iPhone 4S on the go - simple, and perhaps easy enough to accomplish that it should have been included in the basic build long ago, yes?

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak is a success

On your mark, get set, go! A jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 has just been released by the "Dev Dream Team" just moments ago. Apparently, cracking the A5 was "Not exactly a walk in the park" according to the entire team. The jailbreak is termed GreenPois0n Absinthe and is now available for download on Mac OS X alone.

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak incoming with Corona A5 tool

A jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is almost ready for release, arch-iOS hackers the iPhone Dev Team have announced, with only streamlining the user-experience of the "Corona A5 jailbreak" left to complete. Until now, the Apple A5-based products have been stubbornly resistant to hacking attempts, Apple changing its approach in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S so as to give users wanting to install unofficial software more trouble than before. That time of frustration, though, is nearly through.

Siri on iPod Touch with simple iPhone 4S restore

Siri on iPod Touch with simple iPhone 4S restore

It's not even a trick, it would seem, nor is it a hack or a break of any kind, but certainly not something Apple would have you doing - a restore of an iPhone 4S built on an iPod Touch is what mister AppleGordon has done, and with it came Siri! Before you get your fingers twisted in a bundle trying this little oddity out, note this: it's only one man's word against all sensical notions that such a thing will, almost certainly, brick your device. In other words, don't try this at home, but DO giggle at the concept.

Sound like an alright situation to you, all you wishers for the personal assistant that'll let you know where the closest one dollar pop is?
