Jailbreak iPhone 4/iPad/iPod Touch Running iOS 4.3.2

Apple recently rolled out iOS 4.3.2 for the iPad 1/2, iPod Touch 3G/4G and the iPhone 4. The update was a minor one and was mainly aimed at fixing bugs, and improving the battery life.

Thankfully, Apple did not patch the exploit used by hackers to untether’ jailbreak iOS 4.3.1. Now, @i0n1c has made changes in his jailbreak code so as to make it compatible with iOS 4.3.2.

The iPhone Dev. Team has also released an updated version of redsn0w incorporating the code. This means iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G/4G and iPad 1 owners can now jailbreak their device running iOS 4.3.2.

There is some problem jailbreaking the iPhone 4 with this version of redsn0w, so users need to wait until the Dev. Team releases a fix for it. Until then, they can use redsn0w to tether’ jailbreak their iPhone 4.

iPhone 4 users who have unlocked their handset using Ultrasn0w are recommended to stay away from updating to iOS 4.3.2. They should wait until an updated version of the app supporting iOS 4.3.2 is released.

iDevice jailbreaks can download the latest version of redsn0w from here.

Jailbreak For iPhone/iPad Running iOS 4.3.1 Released

The iPhone Dev. Team has just released a new jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1, about which we reported a couple of days ago.

The new jailbreak is an untethered one, unlike the previous jailbreak released for iOS 4.3.1. The new jailbreak supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G/4G, Apple TV 2G and iPad 1 running on the latest version of iOS.

The jailbreak is also available for all Windows and Mac owners via Redsn0w or PwnageTool. Readers can download the application from here.

iPhone 4 owners, who have unlocked their handsets using Ultrasn0w, need to wait until an updated version of the app comes out. Right now, Ultrasn0w unlock is incompatible with iOS 4.3.1.

Sadly, iPad 2 owners need to wait for a jailbreak, until a boot rom level exploit is found for their device.

Incidentally, the first version of PwnageTool was released on this very day, three years ago!

Word Lens : Magic Software Translates Languages in Real-time [Videos]

The blogosphere and twitterati are calling it “magic software”. If you think it’s surprising that even in this day and age, with all the capabilities of software, one can still consider some piece of software as magical, then you have to try it out to believe it.

Quest Visual, a startup comprising all of two people, are the ones behind all the buzz.

They have released an iPhone application called “Word Lens”. Word Lens is an Augmented Reality application which does language translation in real-time video. Real-time video translation is a difficult feat especially when done using the computing power of only an iPhone. To top this, Word Lens does not even require any network connectivity. So there is no time lag of getting information from the Internet and then displaying it, which is usually common for Augmented Reality applications.

If you are still not convinced, check out these videos of Otavio Good, one of the founders of Quest Visual , demoing “Word Lens”.

As per Otavio, the application is still in it’s initial version and needs a lot of improvement with text recognition , speed and the number of language it supports.Word Lens is currently supported on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 3G.

It is left to one’s imagination how useful this application can get. Right from reading restaurant menus to road signs, it can become an indispensable tool for tourists.

With plans to be able to look-up the words on say, Wikipedia, read fine-text accurately and support a lot more languages, I think this application which topped the charts on the App Store, sure has a lot of potential.

You can directly download Word Lens for the iPhone from here

How To Downgrade iOS 4.1 to iOS 4, iOS 3.1.3 or iOS 3.1.2

Step 1: First of all to downgrade from iOS 4.1 to iOS 4 you need the firmware (IPSW) file. After you have got hold of the required IPSW file, you need to put your iPhone/iPod Touch in DFU mode. Keep in mind that DFU mode is different than recovery mode.

Step 2: To put your /iPod Touch into DFU mode, first make sure that iTunes is running on your PC. After that switch off your iPhone/iPod Touch and press the Power and Home button on the device together to put your device in DFU mode.

Now connect your /iPod Touch to your PC using the USB cable. After 10 seconds or so, release the power button whilst holding the Home button. At this point, iTunes should recognize a new USB device, which will be identified as your device after a few seconds. If you have successfully put your phone in DFU mode, then your device screen will display a totally black screen.

Skip to step 4 if you own a iPhone 3G/iPod Touch 2G (Non-MC)

Step 3: This step is only , iPhone 3GS and 3G/2G (MC) owners. Now Users need to use the SHSH blobs of the iOS4 firmware. If you don’t have an SHSH blob of the iOS 4/iOS 3.1.3/iOS 3.1.2 firmware, then you are out of luck. Read this tutorial on how to make a backup of iOS4 SHSH Blobs.

74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

Now save the file and you are done. Keep in mind that you need to open the hostsfile in administrator mode to make changes to it.

Step 4: Now users need to restore the firmware they downloaded in Step 1 to their iPhone/iPod Touch. To do so, press the Alt key and click on the Restoreoption in iTunes. iTunes will then prompt you to point it to the IPSW file. Select the iOS 4 iPSW file and click on Open.

After this iTunes will do all the work for you. While restoring to the iOS 4 firmware, iTunes might throw in a 1011, 1013 or 1015 error. Just ignore these errors. At the end of the process, the firmware has been successfully restored to your iPhone/iPod Touch device.

5) Now all you need to do is to make your device exit from the Recovery Mode. To do so, users need to download a program called RecBoot. Run that program and just select the Exit Recovery Modeoption and you are done. Your iPhone/iPod Touch will restart on its own and it will now be running on iOS 4.
