Gridlock for iPhone allows custom icon positioning [Jailbreak]

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!

Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7? Microsoft Says Yes, Rovio Says No

Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7? Microsoft Says Yes, Rovio Says No

You're Microsoft and today you're launching the brand new Windows Phone 7 platform and what better game to showcase that launch but iOS hit Angry Birds... unless of course the developer, Rovio, isn't making Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7 and didn't give Microsoft permission to use it. Whoops.

Whether or not Angry Birds will make it to Windows Phone 7 down the road is debatable, but a lot of developers have been contacted and asked to make apps for the Windows Phone 7 marketplace.  In some cases, they've even been offered cash incentives. Hit the jump to see the letter some developers have been receiving from Microsoft asking them to develop for Windows phone 7.

And for complete Windows Phone 7 launch coverage, check out our newly renamed sibling site, WPCentral.

Dual OS knockoff iPhone 4

Dual OS knockoff iPhone 4

We've seen our fair share of iClones in the past but this product out of China has taken the knockoff to a new level. It is quite unique in the fact it's the first iClone we've come across that runs two mobile OS's - Windows Mobile 6.5 and Android 2.1. The hardware is composed of a cheap plastic casing and buttons, 512MB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera sporting auto focus, and a 3.6 inch WVGA capacitive touch screen with multi-touch.

All of this can be yours for a cool $260.

More images after the break!

Dev Team comments on Geohot's limera1n [Jailbreak]

The Dev Team has commented on Geohot's multiple iOS device jailbreak, limera1n, released yesterday. A bootrom-level Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS (2009/2010), iPhone 4 (2010), iPod touch 3 (2009), iPod touch 4 (2010), iPad (2010), and theoretically Apple TV (2010). which was released yesterday and it's fair to say it hit the community like a small yield nuclear blast:

Yahoo Messenger app to add 3G video chat

Earlier this week the VP of Yahoo! Mobile in America, David Katz, let slip that Yahoo! will soon be supporting video chat on their mobile apps, including iPhone. A Yahoo Spokesperson has said that he believes:

the iPhone app has already been approved by Apple and that it would be would be available “soon.”

The advantage of Yahoo video calling is that the user will not only be able make video calls with iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4. but with Android devices, Mac and Windows PCs, and anything else Yahoo supports. Yahoo's app will also not be restricted to just Wi-Fi like FaceTime, and will be able to be used via 3G/4G.

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...

Is iPhone 4 "Glassgate" real?

Since Ryan Block, formerly editor-in-chief of Engadget and current co-founder of GDGT, reported Apple was in a secret lock-down over slide-on cases and particulate causing iPhone 4 glass backplates to scratch and break, there's been a lot of debate as to the merit and credibility of the charges.

The Macalope takes particular issue with it in Macworld:

iPad launching at Walmart next week

iPad launching at Walmart next week

We've known iPad is coming to Walmart for a long while now but it looks like next week it will finally arrive. Following on the heels of Target and Amazon -- and Apple Online and Apple Retail -- if Apple can meet demand that's a huge retail footprint for iPad this holiday season.

And I'm starting to run out of 7-Eleven and QuickyMart jokes about where it will show up next, so if you have any ideas drop them in the comments.
