iOS Game Center Hacked Through Cydia App HackCenter

iOS Game CenterWhen   came out, one of the most interesting things to be introduced was the Game Center. Game Center provided game developers with a centralized way to track scores and show top scorers for any game that integrated with it.

Now, each and every user who plays games on their or would definitely want to be on the top of the list so that they can brag about it to their friends. However, that required users to be exceptionally well at games they played.

Now, you can put all those efforts aside thanks to a new app in Cydia store called Hack Center. This new app allows users to submit any score to the Game Center. So you can easily beat anyone at the top of the league with this app and then brag about it to everyone.

This app will only work on jailbroken iPhone which has the Cydia app installed. Considering the number of jailbroken iPhone’s out there, it will now be really hard to trust all those Game Center top scorer listings any more.

Would you prefer to cheat your way and add a fake score using HackCenter? Would you be able to trust the Game Center score boards anymore? Do let me know through your comments.

The iOS4.1 updateGame Center fixes tons of bugs present in the iOS4 including the popular Proximity sensor bug on the iPhone 4, Bluetooth bugs and performance issues on the iPhone 3G.

According to Steve, here is what HDR does :

Let’s start off with HDR photos, what are they? A lot of times when you take a photo, it’s blown out with bright light. Now, when you turn on HDR, it takes 3 photos in rapid succession: one normal, one under exposed, and one under exposed. It combines the three with some pretty sophisticated algorithms…

Another feature which the iOS4.1 update brings onboard is the Game Center. This Center’ is all about playing multiplayer games and challenging your friends to beat your score. The Game Center will also allow users to discover new games.
