With Comex not able to finish his planned iOS 4.2.1 untethered Jailbreak in time for Christmas, MuscleNerd and the iPhone Dev-Team are pushing ahead with a redsn0w "backup plan" and are looking for a few good, qualified testers.

To keep things manageable, this will be a Mac-only test program. We also request that any volunteers NOT need the ultrasn0w unlock (in case things go very wrong).

Skype not working for you? You're not alone

Skype, the most popular VoIP (Voice over IP) service on the planet, has been down for many users for almost a day now. Users either can't log into Skype or if they can, when they try to place a Skype call they're told they're offline. It's the same if you're on the desktop or using the iPhone app. You just can't connect.

The iPhone 4 cake is not a lie!

What could be better than a fabulous iPhone 4? An iPhone 4 made of Dark Chocolate Cake with Dark Belgian Chocolate Truffle filling, big enough to serve 30 people (or 10 TiPb writers!).

These delicious delectables are crafted by Larissa Volnitskaia of cakes.keyartstudio.com and rumor has it iPhones and even iPads are hot commodities on the desert scene these days. Given the level of detail in the picture above (look at those icons!) I don't doubt it. (There are even some more iPhone, iPod touch and BlackBerry cakes in the gallery.)

iPad 2 to be smaller and have better audio [rumor]

According to an anonymous Chinese source, iPad 2 will be slightly smaller, but will retain the 9.7” LCD panel. This basically means that Apple has reduced the size of the bezel surrounding the screen to decrease the overall size. The source claims the new dimensions will be 238mm x 186mm against 242.8mm x 189.7mm dimensions of the current iPad. The rear of the iPad 2 will also be flatter and similar in styling to the latest iPod Touch.

President Obama calls Steve Jobs' success an example of American wealth

During a speech yesterday, President Obama cited Apple's very own Steve Jobs' success as an example of someone who Americans should expect to be rich. He used Jobs as an example to show others the possibilities of business in our modern times. President Obama answered a reporters question prior to making his comments about Jobs.

What is...a fact is that people in the top 1 percent, people in the top one-tenth of 1 percent, or one-hundredth of 1 percent have a larger share of income and wealth than any time since the 1920s. Those are just facts. That's not a feeling on the part of Democrats. Those are facts.

SHAtter bootrom exploit possibly leaked, what it means for jailbreakers

The SHAtter exploit found by pod2g appears to have been leaked. Who leaked it and for what reason is still unclear. What is clear is that Apple will certainly find a way to patch the hardware if it did in fact leak. When Limera1n was released, it kept the SHAtter bootrom exploit safe for future jailbreaks as it would require a complete hardware revision to be done by Apple.

SHAtter basically used a hardware exploit in the A4 series of devices (iPhone 4, iPad, AppleTV 2nd generation, and iPod Touch 4G). You can bet Apple will make a hardware revision to patch SHAtter. It seems there is some drama between some members of the jailbreak community over who actually "leaked" the SHAtter exploit.

@P0isixninja of the Chronic Dev Team is pointing a blame finger to @Musclenerd. As Musclenerd concentrates on unlocks, it seems unreasonable to think he'd leak an exploit he would need in order to create an unlock. Click through for a response to the drama from @comex, who claims if it doesn't stop, he'll just e-mail the exploit directly to Apple. Not good news for the jailbreak community.
