UPDATED: iOS 4.2 not installing on iPhone, error code 10?

iOS 4.2 isn't installing on iPhone for some developers if our email box and a quick search of Twitter are any indication.

It sounds like the install starts fine but then has problems during the baseband update and spits out an error code 10. That's hook it up to Xcode and restore to 4.1 language.

That's also why it's a beta for developers, folks, not for production devices.

UPDATE: Justin Horn from WhenWillApple and the TiPb iPhone forums gi

Mirror's Edge for iPhone - App Review

Mirror's Edge for iPhone by EA recently debuted in the app store. [iTunes Link]  This is one game I was pretty excited to get my hands on.  If you own an iPhone 4, odds are, you won't be disappointed as all graphics are beautifully optimized for the retina display.  There's also a version available for the iPad which clocks in at a bit higher of a price.  We'll look at that version in a later review as well.  For now, click on through to read a full review and see tons of screenshots for the iPhone version!

Unreal development kit coming to iOS

Unreal development kit (UDK) is coming to iOS according to an announcement made by Epic Games at the Korean Games Conference.

What this means is that any iOS developer can download the free UDK and potentially start making worlds as breathtaking as Epic Citadel for iPhone and iPad. Once they've gotten accomplished at it, it sounds like it's a short jump -- and business decision -- to becoming an Unreal Engine 3 licensee and exploding across our iOS devices.

Jobs of War, Cupertino Vice, what Unreal Engine games would you like to see?

Notified for iPhone - Jailbreak App Review

Notified for iPhone is a notification app available via Cydia.  It allows users to have more of an Android-style notification system.  I'd been on the hunt for a better notification system for quite a while.  This is one area I feel Apple has sorely neglected, and probably one of my biggest peeves.  Apps like LockInfo and Intelliscreen have stepped in to pick up some of the slack, but in my opinion, Notified does a cleaner job of presenting notifications.
