iOS 7.0.6 iTunes Restore Error 3 - Unable to restore iPhone 5

iOS 7.0.6 iTunes Restore Error Message 3 - Failed to restore iPhone 5

Apple has recently pushed iOS 7.0.6 update to fix the SSL security bug. However, there seems to be an issue when trying to restore a device on iOS 7.0.6.

My iPhone 5, stopped showing the cellular information and after all the attempts to get back the network like resetting the network settings and resetting all the settings, I thought I should try restoring the device. Here is what I did to restore the iPhone 5:

  1. Connected the iPhone 5 to the computer.
  2. Launched iTunes, updated iTunes to the latest version
  3. Clicked on the restore button. 
  4. iTunes downloaded iOS 7.0.6 and the restore process started.
  5. Everything went smooth and at the end the process got stuck at 99.9% as seen in the below screenshot.
  6. Then iTunes error message 3 popped up.
  7. Later, I tried uninstalling and re installing iTunes, checked the host files, removed everything from the host files, rebooted the computer but I still get the same error.
I've tried checking the forums but there isn't any solution. It is discussed on this thread that the issue is about flash storage and there's nothing that the user can do other than reaching out to the Apple Care.

I'm also attaching the log file of the failed restore, so it could be helpful to anyone who can offer a solution.

This is the present state of my iPhone 5. If anyone else is facing the same issue, please add the details in the comments section below.

VideoPane Jailbreak Tweak Brings Samsung's Pop Up Play To For iPhone And iPad

VideoPane Jailbreak Tweak Brings Samsung's Pop Up Play Now For iOS

With Galaxy S3, Samsung introduced a new and exciting feature that is pop up play. Pop up play allows a user to type a text or read an email while playing the video on the screen. This feature of popping up of the video in an adjustable way on the screen was exciting and new as no one every thought about a feature like this until Samsung.

iOS is always behind when it comes to adding cool new features. However, if you jailbreak you device, you can download and install a lot of new tweaks that are available in the Cydia store. Some free and some paid but the wide range of app and tweaks that you can find after jailbreaking a device will make you play with your device every day.

Today, a popular jailbreak community contributor Ryan Petrich has released a new tweak that does exactly the same that which Samsung's pop up play does. Video pane tweak for iPhone and iPad allows you to multitask video while you are working on something else. You can watch the video and re-size it to continue with what you are doing allowing you to not just do your work but also watch the video that is being played at the same time.

Video Pane is an application/tweak for jailbroken iPhones and iPads that allows detaching of videos from the player, be it YouTube or native iOS player or any 3rd party player like VLC and float the video on the screen while you can work on your device or do facebooking or tweeting. Video pane is a must have tweak for all iOS users. Video pane currently supports, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPod touch 4G and 5G.  You can purchase video pane from cydia store for a nominal price of $1.99

Here's a video of the tweak in action

Jailbreaking iPhone 4 CDMA Running iOS 5.1 Now Possible - Team Unthreaded

Jailbreak On iPhone 4 CDMA On iOS 5.1 Possible Using Unthreaded Jailbreak

Unthreaded jailbreak, a new group of jailbreak developers have released a jailbreaking tool with the ability to jailbreak iPhone 4 CDMA running on iOS 5.1. This was released earlier today. Initially people thought Unthreadedjb is nothing but another trolling face but many users have tried and it works perfectly without any bugs or glitches.

The team, unthreadedjb is a new group and they haven't released anything yet. Reports claim that the method used in this jailbreak is implementation of other jailbreak tools. However, since there was no jailbreak tool for CDMA iPhones running iOS 5.1, this seems like a life savior for many. 

Unthreaded jailbreak is an untethered jailbreak which is only available for linux platforms. Hoping to see the team release their tool on other platforms other than linux. They have also replied on twitter saying that the tool will soon be updated to support iOS versions 6.1.3 and 6.1.4

If you are an iPhone 4 CDMA user running iOS  5.1 and want to jailbreak your device. Head straight to Unthreaded website to download and run the application.

Chrome Downloader Plus For iPhone And iPad - Universal Downloader

Chrome Downloader Plus For iPhone And iPad - Enhanced Universal Downloader

Apple has restricted downloading content on iOS devices and that's annoying as it sounds. However, if you are using a jailbroken device then you might have already used downloaders like Safari Download Manager or YourTube or Protube for downloading audio and video files from YouTube and other portals to watch the videos at your ease.

There is however a problem with the above mentioned tweaks and apps. None of them is universal. For instance, if you want to download zip folders or files or even mp3 files, you can use Safari Download Manager but it does not support downloading of videos. For that, you'll have to again go for another app like yourtube or protube. Assuming that you are purchasing the above mentioned apps for downloading stuff, you'd be spending roughly around 15$. That's a lot! Chrome Downloader Plus is priced at a reasonable $3.00 which I believe is totally worth every penny. Download it today from Cydia Store!

Chrome Downloader Plus is the successor of the popular app Chrome Downloader with new features. Here's an overview of the app and its features. Chrome downloader plus is a radical upgrade to chrome downloader. It encompasses all of the nifty features of the original download manager and extends them to deliver a powerful YouTube Videos Downloader as well.

The user interface was completely redesigned to give a clean face-lift to comply and take advantage of iPad's large display. The YouTube addition allows you to download YouTube videos and save them anywhere in your iDevice for later playback. You can then use the integrated faceility to fully customise the metadata and import the video or only the audio into various built-in supporting apps: Music App, Video App

Features Of YouTube Downloader Plus :
  • Download YouTube videos for offline viewing.
  • Supports multiple video qualities 144 upto 1080p
  • Discreet sliding panel with quality options controlled by a touch of your finger.

CopyLess For Mac - Enlarge The Clipboard Of Your Mac

CopyLess For Mac - Enlarge The Clipboard Of Your Mac

Which shortcuts do you use most frequently? The answer is clear – Ctrl+V and Ctrl+C. If we take away these two shortcuts the efficiency and speed of any person who works with computers will decrease significantly.

We use OS X clipboard pretty often and a lot of information passes through it. The best way would be store at least a big part of this information in a stack. But the problem is that a regular clipboard can store only the latest piece of information. If you want to save to clipboard another piece of information, the previous one will be deleted.But modern developers have solved this problem. There several apps that help you to enlarge your clipboard. Among them is CopyLess, the one I’d like to tell you about.

The first thing you notice about this app is that its icon looks pretty much the same as that of Adobe. In general, design is not the most attractive part of this application. But at the same time it’s not the most important one either. Let’s talk about the functional of the app.

CopyLess always works in a background mode and saves everything that goes to the clipboard. The maximum size of a stack is 100 notes. In order to launch the start window you may use Shift+Cmd+V shortcut. The app remembers the position it appeared last time and will appear in the same place on the screen. Alongside with each note there’s time and the icon of a program in which you pressed Ctrl+C. The most used information can be saved to Favorites and you may set shortcuts for these pieces. So this may become an alternative to regular copypasting of some useful information

Other important functions of the app include app search, insert without formatting, the move of the object into the beginning of the stack after each inserting, apps filter, multilanguage support. Also, you may find a Lite version of the CopyLess in the App Store. The only difference of this version from the full one is that it saves 10 notes instead of 100 in the main area and only 3 notes in the Favorites.
So if we take into consideration the functional of the app, then I can say that this is the best copypaste app so far. But still the developers might have paid a bit more attention to the design of the app.

iPhone Monitoring App Is A Good Investment For Business - Here Are The Reasons

iPhone Monitoring App Is A Good Investment For Business - Here Are The Reasons

spy-vs-spy iphone

A business is meant to make money. Yes, it's great that you work on something you like or you're passionate for, but if it's not putting food on the table, it's not worth it.

Profit has basically two aspects, money you put into your business and money that the business gives you. There are several aspects of a business, but they all have to somehow reflect on the bottom line.

Investing in an iPhone monitoring application can be scary for some business owners. After all, it's a cost, and it's hard to make enough money as it is with the state of the economy. Obviously, the main question here is “Is it worth it?” While I can't speak for every business owner in America, from my own experience, the answer is yes, here's why:

1.- It gets rid of bad employees

Bad employees are bad news. They make you lose money in several ways, not only stealing. For example, if an employee wastes time on Facebook, you still have to pay for that time as if he had been working. Same thing with employees that arrive late, leave early or use the company's resources. They obviously aren't open about this, which is why you need an iPhone monitoring application to find out who they are.

2.- It helps you motivate good employees.

In the same vein, just like the application tells you who the bad employees are, it also tells you who the good employees are, allowing you to recognize and reward them. This is important, because if employees see that bad elements are punished and good ones are rewarded, they will act accordingly.

3.- It gets you ideas from your employees.

Some of the best ideas to improve the performance of a business come from its employees. They work at it everyday, so they often see the same situations and opportunities over and over. They don't always talk about it for several reasons, the main one being that they're afraid that if they speak out, they will be seen as criticizing the company. But with this application, you can get these ideas and apply them, improving your business and employees' morale.

4.- It lets you know what your employees think of you.

Probably the most useful aspect of an iPhone monitoring application is that it finally gives you the answer to the question “what do my employees really think of me and my business?” If you want to take this approach, just remember that you won't like some of the things you'll discover, and that's ok. It happens to every single boss in every single company. However, it's worth knowing it because it can tell you where the areas of opportunity are.

PressReader For iOS - The Best App With The Widest Range Of Newspapers And Magazines Across The World

PressReader For iOS - The Best App With The Widest Range Of Newspapers And Magazines Across The World

iTunes Description
If you’re looking for the ultimate reading experience for your favorite newspapers and magazines, then you have to try PressReader 3.1.2. With its SmartFlow content presentation design, PressReader is without a doubt the most engaging, feature-rich and entertaining newspaper and magazine reading application you’ll ever use.
Browse and read full digital replicas of thousands of newspapers and magazines from 97 countries just like you would in print. Or journey through the attention-grabbing SmartFlow stream of articles where visual clues will not only enhance your reading experience, they will reveal new gems of content you’ll be delighted to discover.

If you are not convinced with the above description, let us give you a detailed description of the app and the reasons why you should go for it.

PressReader Is Optimized For Your Device :
Be it an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5, pressreader fits perfectly on your screen allowing you to enjoy the large screen of iPhone 5. If you are wondering that the app might stretch out while using it on an iPad, you should check the screenshots below. The app is optimized to take the full control of the iPad screen and yes it is Retina Ready. The text looks crispier and the images look brighter and sharper. It gives you a delightful reading experience (unless the news is bad :p)

Content Library :
This is the most amazing feature of PressReader. The app supports over 2,300 newspapers and magazines printed across the world in over 59 different languages. You can read local news papers in English, French, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Turkish, Hindi, Arabic, Spanish and many more. There has never been an app in the entire iOS store that supports such a varied content bypassing the geographical and linguistic boundaries.

Reading View :
PressReader supports both landscape and portrait reading view. Nothing new, isn't it ? Well, the app not only supports rotation but also has a scroll-view bar at the bottom allowing you to smoothly move your finger to select the page that you'd like to read. The flow is very smooth giving an amazing navigation experience.

Smart View :
Smart view is yet again an incredible feature of pressreader. The app understands that you are a busy person and have barely enough time to switch through multiple apps to read newspapers and when it comes to translating an article from an unknown language, well, that's a pain.

Smart View, basically saves your time by not just reading out the entire news paper but by also translating the selected newspaper into the desired language. Isn't that cool! Imagine you are in a situation where you need to read an article that appeared in a Spanish news paper. Your first choice would be to select a Spanish newspaper then copy the article and then translate it using Google translator. That's pretty tiring and time consuming job. With PressReader, all you need to do is select that language that you want the app to translate and read out the article into and you are good to go!

English - Spanish Translation

Beautiful Shelves :
I do have a library of my own and trust me I like it more when the shelves are clean and properly aligned with books in an organized layout. PressReader does that job in a remarkable way. It categories newspapers and magazines separately and this categorization is also categorized under the date when they were issued and downloaded. That's neat! 

You can also select the layout option in two ways - Thumbnails or List and I think the thumbnail view looks better as it give a better look of the shelve.

Quick Headlines (Top Stories):
Like I mentioned earlier, pressreader understands the importance of your time and hence there is an option of reading the top stories. Now the best part is you are change these headlines. For example, imagine your wife and kids went for Christmas celebration to their granny's place but you could and hence you are worried about the storm which is getting worse. You can select the local newspaper of the city where your family has gone and keep checking the headlines for any latest news.

Sources :
You can select the news from various sources, either by browsing through the most viewed newspaper or in an alphabetical order or if you are impatient then you can select the one with the most recent timestamp. The point that I'd like to highlight about press reader here is that you have got multiple resources to get updated with the latest news. You can either casually view the most popular newspaper or view the most recent newspaper.

Auto Subscription :
While downloading a newspaper, you will notice an option that says auto subscribe, this feature will allow your app to automatically look for an update for the newspaper or the magazine that is being downloaded and then automatically download it by notifying you.

You need to be very sure if you are enabling this feature as it will automatically purchase the next update and then download it. If you want to disable the auto subscription, all you need to do is go to settings and disable auto subscription.

Pay As You Go :
PressReader has convenient pricing plans. you can either opt for a monthly subscription of $29.95 or go with the option of paying $0.99 for every download. If you spend a lot of time reading, then a monthly subscription is advisable.

Better Sharing :
There is no app that does not include sharing options and when it comes to sharing, PressReader is not running behind any app with regards to sharing. You can share your opinion on a particular news by supporting or opposing it. You can also save articles to popular after reading apps like Evernote and Instapaper. You can also share the new via twitter and Facebook.
