Cut the Rope for iPhone - app review

Cut the Rope for iPhone is a simple, yet challenging strategy type game.  Your little frog Om Nom wants candy.  The candy is hanging from random ropes with all kinds of obstacles in the way.  Your job is to find a way to cut the strings in the right order to get the candy into Om Nom's mouth.  You'll also need to collect stars on the way down.  The more stars you collect and the quicker you complete a level, the more points and achievements you'll earn.

Gridlock for iPhone allows custom icon positioning [Jailbreak]

Gridlock is an iPhone Jailbreak hack that will allow you to setup app icons on your home screen in a manner that doesn't interfere with your wallpaper or just let you create an awesome pattern -- the choice is yours. It is easy to use, all you have to do is hold down on an icon to make your apps jiggle like you always do and then move them around anywhere you want.

That's it, no app, no settings, just click and drag your icons anywhere! Best of all it's just $0.99 in Cydia, thanks Chronic Dev-Team member chpwn!

UPDATED: Limera1n released! BEFORE Greenpois0n [Jailbreak]

Geohot has struck first by releasing his limera1n jailbreak for all 3rd gen and 4th gen devices, using Comex's userland tools to make it untethered. While there was talk of consolidating Chronic Dev Team's Greenpois0n jailbreak with Geohot's Limera1n, Geohot has decided to release his first. Chronic Dev Team has responded -- angrily -- on twitter

Will they go forward with Greenpois0n as planned? Stay tuned...

Limera1n teases all iOS device exploit, return of Geohot?

Looks like Geohot wants back with limera1n and back in on the Jailbreak scene. Just day after Chronic Dev Team and Comex announced the 10/10/10 release date of Greenpois0n, he has announced his own bootrom exploit, which he wants included in Greenpois0n, no doubt delaying it's release... What will Chronic Dev Team do? According to the @chronicdevteam twitter account:

We are currently working the "situation" out. Don't worry, you'll still get the jailbreak in the end, nothing to be concerned about.

UPDATED: Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak announced! [Jailbreak]

Moments ago, prominent Chronic Dev Team member Joshua Hill (p0sixninja) announced via twitter that "Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM." This hotly anticipated Jailbreak should bring another large contingent into the Jailbreaking community as many new iPhone users who have not been able to jailbreak 4.0.2 and 4.1 will now be able to jailbreak their device.

While details of the jailbreak, such as whether it will be tethered or how it will be implemented have not been announced, that information will likely be given shortly... As a reminder, it is a good idea to save your SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella if you have not already done so.
