TiPb Presents: iPhone Live! Podcast #7 -- Jailbreak Live!

Dieter, Chad, and Rene, joined by Jeremy and a plethora of our amazing TiPb readers in the chat room, get together for a fairly wild ride this week. Rene jailbreaks his iPhone live! Running OS 2.2.1, on an OS X 10.5.6 Mac (using a USB hub), he wants it done so he can install and test xGPS before the show ends, can he make it?

Sponsored by the TiPb iPhone Store, this week we highlight the Seidio Innocell External Battery and chat about both the RichardSolo and Mophie Juice Pack.

Google's first on our agenda, and we discuss their removing the optimized iGoogle page, but adding optimized Gmail Tasks and Google Books WebApps. The big news, however, is Google Sync: what is it and how's it working for us so far?

As much as Google hearts Apple, is Apple hating a little on Google? We get into the whole missing Android G1 multi-touch (and 3.5mm headset jack) melodrama.

Not to be left out, Microsoft decided not only to iClone MobileMe, but call it... My Phone. Not so funny: it has some features we'd really like to see in MobileMe!

And yeah, CrackBerry.com totally launched their cartoon assault. Fortunately, the iPhone was still the funniest.


Thanks to the the iPhone Blog Store for sponsoring the podcast, and to everyone who showed up for the live chat, or sent in questions!

Our music comes from the following sources:

If you subscribe, it should show up. I pinged iTunes, not sure why it's not showing in their listing -- the feed definitely has it.

Will you guys be posting a clear How-To Article on jailbreaking 2.2.1 with OS 10.5.6? You made it sound so easy on the podcast, yet the dev team's blog seems so complicated.
