As we reported earlier, Apple has announced that sometime today we will finally see the much anticipated iOS 4.2 update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and what's more -- Apple TV should be getting 4.2 today as well.
What everyone is anticipating is the use of AirPlay, which was probably a big selling point for most buyers of the new Apple TV. Now any iOS 4.2 equipped device will be able to send videos, audio, and photos to their big TV screen.
Wondering how to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with greenpois0n? Jailbreakers have a wealth of options when it comes to iOS 4.1. We've already looked at how to jailbreak iOS 4.1 via limera1n and how to jailbreak via PwnageTool 4.1. Now we're looking at the Mac version of greenpois0n. PC users shouldn't have too much difficulty following along with any of these as the steps are generally the same. It's really up to you what tool you decide to use. I suggest unlockers use PwnageTool 4.1 though, as it will preserve your baseband for future unlocking. And as always, we take no responsibility to any damage done to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
This version of greenpois0n will jailbreak the following devices:
ToDo for iPhone by Appigo has long been one of my favorite productivity apps. I've been desperately waiting to see this app updated mainly with support for local notifications. The fact that you'd have to open the app in order to update the badge was somewhat irritating. It's part of the reason I switched back to Evernote.
Not only does ToDo now support local notifications, it's been updated with complete multitasking support as well as high resolution graphics for the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th gen. It also supports password protection and adding multiple alerts for tasks. I've noticed the app overall is a lot more responsive as well.
Several tweets this morning are indicating that a jailbreak for iOS 4.1 could come sooner rather than later. Could there be any better news you ask? Why yes! Jailbreaker @pod2g as well as other sources are indicating that this "particular" exploit would require Apple to flash to a whole new bootrom in order to fix it.
What does this mean for jailbreakers? It means they run less of a risk of accidental updates and what-not being so catastrophic. Apple can't fix this exploit by simply issuing a software update. It would require a flashed version of the bootrom out of the factory. We may eventually see new iPhone 4s shipped with newer bootroms but any older ones would remain jailbreakable, regardless of any software update Apple may issue.
What didn't we get from Apple during their 2010 special music event? The iPod touch line got an extremely decent refresh, as well as the Nano. iPhone is getting iOS 4.1 next week with some newly added features and some much needed bug fixes. The iPad will be getting iOS 4.2 - in November, but I'm sure some of us would have liked to see it sooner. And we got an overhauled iTunes. I personally wasn't expecting a whole new iTunes, so that was the surprise of the day for me. AppleTV was pretty underwhelming in my book (as well as Rene's). Click through to see what us here at TiPb would have liked to see and let us know in the comments what you would have liked that just didn't make the cut this time.
Earlier this afternoon Apple released the very first beta for iOS 4.1 along with the software development kit (SDK) to all developers. Unfortunately, there has been no word on what changes have been made within the software from Apple. If you are a developer and notice anything worth a mention, be sure to let us know.
