Dev-Team releases PwnageTool 4.1 for Mac OS X [Jailbreak]

Dev-Team releases PwnageTool 4.1 for Mac OS X [Jailbreak]

Here it is, PwnageTool 4.1 for Mac OS X, and it's good to go for Apple TV (2010), iPad 3.2.2, iPod touch (2010), iPod touch (2009), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G.

PwnageTool allows you to restore to a custom IPSW file. For instance, you can restore to a pre-jailbroken firmware while simultaneously maintaining your current baseband (and thus your ultrasn0w carrier unlock). You can also add whatever packages you want in the “Expert” mode of Pwnage

Apple TV is obviously a big addition here:

Apple preparing better iDisk service?

Apple preparing better iDisk service?

We're just over an hour away from the Back to the Mac event, and Daring Fireball is saying Apple is working on an improved iDisk service:

I’ve heard rumors of a “Dropbox-killer” service from Apple, possibly a part of Mac OS X 10.7. I don’t know if it made the cut

It needs to make the cut though, and soon. I've stopped using iDisk in favor of DropBox and I know many others have as well. MobileMe has gotten better mail and a better calendar but it desperately needs a better storage solution. Even Microsoft's Mesh/Sync/Toy/Live/Stuff bring more, if confused, features to the table.

Developers weigh in on Android vs. iOS openness

Former Facebook for iPhone developer Joe Hewitt has weighed in on the Steve Jobs re-ignited "openness" debate with a cogent argument that Android isn't much more open than iOS, at least not in the true spirit of the term. Here's what he posted (mostly via Twitter for iPad, for those keeping track at home):

Grooveshark brings streaming music with search to Jailbroken iPhones! [Jailbreak]

Grooveshark brings streaming music with search to Jailbroken iPhones! [Jailbreak]

Grooveshark is an online music search engine and music streaming service which allows users to search for, stream, and upload music free of charge that can be played immediately or added to a playlist with the option to cache files for offline play.

In the past, an iPhone app was available on the iTunes App Store, but was quickly removed as it appeared to violate Apple's iTunes Store Terms of Service. It has now returned on Cydia for free, however the app requires a VIP subscription ($3/month through Grooveshark). However, the app does allow for 50 free plays before the subscription service is required.

If you're using it, let us know how it's working for you!
