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.

H1Siri hack comes to hacked iPhone 4 and iPod Touch

When you've got a jailbroken phone, aka a hacked phone on the Apple iOS mobile platform, you've got a lot of freedoms when it comes to illicit applications such as this most recent of the pack: Siri for your iPod Touch or iPhone 4 through an app called H1Siri. What you're going to get with this app is some developers from China by the name of CD-Team allowing you to use the Siri application and ecosystem to the fullest just so long as your device is both jailbroken and is running the newest version of iOS 5. 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?

iOS 5 beta expires today: b7b redsn0w saves your data

iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users running the iOS 5 beta may find their devices not playing ball, with the preview copy of the recently released Apple platform expiring today. Although Apple targets its iOS betas at developers looking to get their apps up to speed with upcoming software changes, the low cost of entry to developer accounts has seen many regular users jump at the chance for early access as well; those same users may be left holding less-than-useful devices today, when the beta expires. Thankfully there's an unofficial tool to allow user data to be extracted.

Apple’s Newest Intern is also iOS’ Greatest Hacker

When it comes to Apple's mobile platform iOS, this operating system running on the ultra-successful iPhone and iPad as well as iPod Touch, there's a certain word that represents the illegal hacking of the ecosystem: Jailbreaking. When it comes to Jailbreaking, aka beating Apple's security barriers and editing Apple's code as one sees fit, Comex is the man. His site JailbreakMe.com famously made breaking into your iDevice as easy as visiting a website - and he's announced today that he's joining the Apple team as their newest intern.

iUsers lets jailbroken iPads have multiple user accounts

iUsers lets jailbroken iPads have multiple user accounts

There are a lot of things that many iPad users wish their iPad could do that Apple doesn't allow. Some of the things are very basic like user accounts. My kids like to use my iPad more than I do and each time I give it to my son for instance, he ends up asking to play some game on it that isn't appropriate for his age like Grand Theft Auto. I have wished more than once that I could set up an account for him on the tablet and only put apps he can play on the account.

iOS Hacker Bringing Swype To Jailbroken iPhones

iOS Hacker Bringing Swype To Jailbroken iPhones

It's unusual for someone that's gone Android to go back to iOS, but when it does happen, a sorely missed feature is the Swype keyboard. Swype lets you trace your finger from letter to letter without lifting off the screen to type your words. It's quicker and less straining to type this way, but the feature has yet to be available to iPhone users. Well, that may be about to change---at least for users of jailbroken iPhones---as one iOS hacker has just released a beta port of Swype.

iOS 5 slams door on iPhone firmware downgrades

iOS 5 slams door on iPhone firmware downgrades

Apple is reportedly preparing to ramp up the preventative measures it uses to prevent iOS device owners from restoring older firmware versions, a system often used as part of jailbreak and/or unlocking hacks. As of iOS 5, the iPhone Dev Team reports, Apple will be stepping up the authentication process on the "APTicket" which deems whether a particular firmware version can be installed on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or not. Even those owners who have "saved their blobs" - aka keeping a record of SHSH details for each firmware version - so that they can backtrack to earlier, more hack-friendly iterations of iOS will be affected.
