Apple Has Started Blocking Jailbreak Usage In iPhone iTunes


Musclenerd jailbreak
Apple has started blocking the usage of word jailbreak in iTunes for iPhone. Musclenerd has just shared an image over twitter that showing apple blocking the word jailbreak and adding *** and making it appear as J*******k. From the image we can make out that Apple is silently expelling its frustration for jailbreak by blocking everything related to jailbreaking.

This audio song possibly had nothing to do with jailbreaking but because of the naming convention used, apple has blocked the title. Apple has a really good reason to be frustrated with jailbreaking team and jailbreak users. Jailbreak developers were able to jailbreak Apple's newes iOS 5.1 when it was released on the very same day. There were over 3 different methods discovered for jailbreaking iOS 5.1. Apple however released an early update for iOS with 5.1.1 fixing safari security holes. The jailbreak has not landed in public hands and is still in the final stages. 

Pod2g, the developer behind jailbreaking iOS 5.1 has confirmed over twitter that his untethered jailbreak works well on iPhone 4S and iPad2. However he said that iPhone3G and iPhone3GS new boot rom do not work well with his method and he's working on making it work. The latest update on iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak release is that Pod2g, Chronic Dev-Team is planning to release the jailbreak in HITB event.

Is Jailbreaking Legal And What Are The Benefits Of Jailbreaking

Why Should I Jailbreak My iPhone-iPod-iPad And Is It Legel - What Are The Benefits Of Jailbreaking

jailbreaking with cydia

The most asked question every where on the internet is about jailbreaking iPhone. New iPhone owners ask various questions concerning the legal issues of jailbreak and unlock and the after jailbreak performance issues. Most commonly asked question is there any reason to jailbreak an iPhone. We have tried to gather as much as information we could to make the new iPhone owners relax that jailbreaking an iPhone magnifies the iPhone experience that people had earlier.

Q) What do you mean by jailbreak ?
A) Jailbreaking is a method of gaining root level/supreme access to your Apple device so that you can run custom 3rd party applications which are not approved by Apple. Jailbreaking is similar to rooting of Android but is much more complex and dynamic in nature. There are many benefits of jailbreaking iPhone iPad and iPod so that you may use various tweaks and applications and themes that changes the entire UI experience of using an Apple product.

There are two types of jailbreak

  1. Tethered Jailbreak :   A tethered jailbreak requires that the device be connected to a computer each time it needs to be booted. A tethered jailbreak is one which requires you to connect your iPhone, iPod, iPad to the computer every time your device is restarted/rebooted/battery drained and not booting up after pluggin in your device to the power. A tethered jailbreak is usually done immediately after a new software update is done on apple device. Tethered jailbreak is for the time being and can be fixed once untethered jailbreak is released. This usually takes some time and that's the reason why people for a tethered jailbreak as its hard to stay away from jailbreak tools.

    So if your device is on tethered jailbreak, it won't start and boot automatically, instead it will get stuck in apple boot logo and spinning wheel. This is Normal and is supposed to happen in tethered jailbreak. 

  2. Untethered Jailbreak :  An untethered jailbreak allows the device to be powered without computer assistance. It usually takes more time for an untethered jailbreak to release.

Q) Is Jailbreaking Legal ?
A) Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, jailbreaking iPhones is legal. According to Prof.Tim Wu of Columbia Law School "Jailbreaking is legal, ethical and just plain fun." So, yeah Jailbreaking is absolutely legel :)

Q) Is Jailbreaking Safe ?
A) Jailbreaking is method by which the users gain root level access to their iOS devices. Jailbreaking tools like redsn0w, sn0wbreeze, limera1n, Blackra1n, greenp0ison, absinthe and corona are completely safe tools created by well reputed developers. Jailbreaking is safe until and unless the user himself modifies the files at root level. Apart from the jailbreak tools that developers make, they involve themselves in immense research to makes sure the users are safe from any kind of danger. Bottom line is, jailbreaking is safe if you are using tools from trusted source.

Q) Is Jailbreaking Free ?
A) Yes Jailbreaking is absolutely free. You should always rely on trusted jailbreak tools like

Q) How Can I jailbreak ?
A) Yet another most asked question. A new iOS device user gets confused with the tools and firmwares available. Its difficult for a new iPhone user to understand which jailbreak to use on which firmware. The following information should help every iPhone, iPad, iPod user to jailbreak their device with the correct tool.

My iOS device is...

Running iOS 5.1.
iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and the new iPad: nothing yet.
Other devices: a tethered jailbreak is available.

Running iOS 5.0.1.
iPhone 4S and iPad 2: absinthe.
Other devices: redsn0w+corona.

Running iOS 5.0, 4.2.9-10, or 4.3.4-5.
A tethered jailbreak is available.

Running iOS 4.2.6 through 4.2.8, or iOS 4.3 through 4.3.3.
Open JailbreakMe on your device itself.

On iOS 4.1 through 4.2.1.
Use redsn0w and the IPSW for your firmware.

Q) What Are The Benefits Of Jailbreaking iPhone and iOS Devices ?
A) There are many benefits of jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad or iPod. We'll be discussing few below. Once you jailbreak your device the first application that you can see is 'Cydia' . Cydia is an official jailbreak application repository where in you can find various applications, tweaks, themes, ringtones and others.

This means that every time you slide for a new page on your iPod Touch or iPhone a 3D cube transition or one of the many other transitions effect will take place. Barrel does not come with many settings, but it comes with transition effects which can be specified inside the

True Print
                  True Print, Apple included a new feature call Air-Print. Although apple limited this air print feature only to limited 8 printers that made the customers very sad as they would want to use their iPhones to print right from the printer they own. True Print was developed by intelliborn that allows you to print to almost all network printers. Simply install, and use Apple’s built-in print menu. New printers will now show up thanks to TruPrint!

            iGotYa is a security application that enables you to take the picture of the person who unlock your iPhone by entering an incorrect password. You need to enable it in the settings and configure an email address to which the picture would be sent. Basically, if you lose your iPhone, if the thief tries to unlock it by entering the wrong code, iGotYa will automatically take the picture of the user with the front camera of the iPhone 4 and send it to the email address already configured in the phone. Its a great app for those who travel alot and have the risk of losing their device.

                iBlacklist is a wonderful tweak that enables the user to block certain calls or messages using the mobile number. Its a handy application for your girlfriend who is getting calls from unknown numbers and all you could do is just disconnect it. Well, not any more.

Multicon Mover
                           Multicon Mover is a sleek tweak that enables the user to move multiple icons at the same time on the springboard. Its very useful for the users who have many applications on their springboard and its not viable to move one icon at a time. Using multicon mover, you can simply press and hold any icon for a while and when it starts jiggling, you can tap on the icons that you want to move and simply drag any one icon to the play where you need all the selected icons to appear.

Grid Lock
                 Grid Lock enables you to place icons anywhere on the screen. The default position of the icon is top left and every icon added is placed beside it. Using GridLock, you can place the icons one at the right corner and one at the left corner of the screen, Basically you can make any design by placing the icons all around you screen.

                  SBRotator as the name suggests is a tweak that rotates the springboard. The entire UI can be set to any rotation mode. You can either set it to rotate as per the motion of the device or you can fix the rotation to landscape mode. There are many patterns of shifting through the page which are configurable in the settings of sbrotator.

jailbreaking apps and tools

                Multiflow replaces the default application switcher mode for iOS devices. It adds gestures that can be used to enable app switching. Easy instructions make it even simple to configure and use.

           iSwipe is an alternate keyboard equivalent to the swype keyboard of android.

3G Unrestrictor
                      3G Unrestrictor unrestricts the application limits. By default some applications in iOS are designed to work only on WiFi, using this tweak you can now use all the features of applications even when on 3G.

                  Multitunes creates multiple iTunes libraries for your iPhone, iPod or iPad so that you don't lose your existing music even when you sync your device with different iTunes.

                PwnTunes is perhaps the most powerful tool available for music lovers in cydia. PwnTunes allows you to simply add downloaded music to iTunes library. You can download music from the internet and simply place it in the specified folder inside your device and then pwntunes will automatically import the downloaded music into iTunes library.

       iFile is the most powerful tool of cydia. It allows fast navigation through the iPhone file system. You can directly view files of various types, e.g. movies, sound, text, HTML, Microsoft types, PDF, various compressed formats. For PDF files direct jumping to pages is possible. ZIP packing and compressed file unpacking is also supported. Files can be sent as email attachments.Text files and property lists can be edited. Folders and files can be bookmarked. In addition, files can be uploaded and downloaded from iFile’s built-in web server.

iSleepWell Automatically Switches Into Airplane Mode When Its Placed Face Down

iOS Tweak To Automatically Switch Your iPhone Into Airplane Mode

Developer xvolks is not new to jailbreak and cydia tweaks. His contribution to Corona jailbreak is widely appreciated. There used to be some issue with the jailbreak that disabled iBooks in jailbroken iOS devices. Xvolks patch made iBooks work on iOS deivices. His work on iBooks can be seen here.

cydia tweak iSleepwell for iPhone

iSleepWell is a tweak by Xvolks that has just hit Cydia and brings with it a feature set that attempts to give the user a good night sleep. The application uses a simple method of deactivating all radios, in other words, setting Airplane mode to on through a simple detection routine.


iSleepWell is useful to turn airplane mode ON when going to bed (for example) by just putting your iDevice beside you on the screen side. It detects that position and turns off all radios. You can sleep without being disturb by unsolicited calls and you are not bombarded by negative waves. Many parameters can be changed. iOS devices comes built in with a number of hardware sensors that can detect the orientation of the phone, allowing certain things to happen for each state it may be in. iSleepWell uses this hardware capability and turns off all radios when the device is placed screen down on a surface.

cydia app review iSleepwell

Features Of iSleepWell:

Enabled : if ON (default), iSleepWell will detect the sleep position and react as expected. If OFF, it does nearly nothing except waiting to go ON.

Play Sound : when the airplane mode is about to be triggered the device says Airplane mode enabled. This let you put it on the right side to prevent the mode change.
When you take back the device in your hand, the device says Back to normal.
If OFF, no sound is played.

Vibrate : when airplane mode is actually changed, the device vibrates if ON.

Scan interval : iSleepWell polls the accelerometer state each X seconds : 5 and 10 are good choices.

Screen down : by default you have to put the device on the screen to trigger the airplane mode. you can change that behavior by setting this switch to OFF. Useful to test and see the plane too...

Active on sleep mode : when you let your device without using it at all, it goes to suspend state and the applications receive no CPU time from iOS. This switch set to ON awakes to device every 15 minutes to check if the position have changed. So turning your device may not trigger the airplane mode right now if it is in hibernation. This will consume very few battery.
You can set it to OFF if you fear for your battery, but I did not notice significant change.

Disable on manual change : if you set Airplane mode by yourself (when you are aboard a plane ;)), iSleepWell will detect this state and will disable itself until you reenables the radios by yourself.
Setting this to OFF, will let iSleepWell to reenable the radios. It's safer to let this to ON.

Prevent from running : if set to ON, iSleepWell will exit completely and will be unable to do anything. The only ways to relaunch it is to respring or reboot the device after putting this toggle to OFF.

You can get iSleepWell from the Cydia Store for $0.99.
