Jailbreak iOS 6 Tethered On iPhone 4 & iPod touch 4G, Untethered On 3GS

iOS 6 was released a year after iOS 5, almost to the day. The untethered jailbreak for the previous major update came out around Christmas last year, but the progress for iOS 6 has been a bit slower. We will be lucky even to have a tethered jailbreak for all iDevices before December (specially the newer ones with A5, A5x and A6 processors). However, this does not mean that the jailbreak community has been completely idle so far, as tethered jailbreaks for A4 and older devices have already been released, albeit with restrictions and compatibility issues. Until now, if you jailbroke your iOS 6-donning A4 device, you had to install the Cydia app manually (as outlined in our detailed guide on how to jailbreak  and install Cydia on iOS 6 Beta). Fortunately, things have finally started to move forward with the release of redsn0w 0.9.15b1. The latest update of the tool now installs Cydia itself with tethered jailbreak for A4 and older devices, and offers an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS with the old bootrom. A step-by-step guide and more on supported devices past the break. Read More

aremaC Is The Most Comprehensive Camera & Photo Editing App For iPhone

If you’ve been following me anywhere – AddictiveTips included – you may have guessed that I am a huge fan of photography apps for the iPhone. It’s not only because of my interest in photography, but also owing to the fact that the capable cameras on iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S get really complemented by all the good apps out there in the iTunes App Store. AddictiveTips’ archives are full of brilliant photo apps, including the likes of Magic Hour and IncrediBooth, disposable camera replicas like Dotti, and Mosaic & Collage makers like Fotoyaki. Then there are feature rich photo editors like Pho.to Lab and Luminance, which let you tweak about any aspect of your photos, and capable camera replacement apps such as King Camera and TapShot, which can change the entire scope of how you handle your iPhone’s already-pretty-decent camera. What’s more, this is merely the tip of the iceberg, as the App Store is teeming with several other alternatives, many of which might be even better. Read More

ICaughtU Uses iPhone Front Camera To Snap Photo On Incorrect Passcode

Smartphones replaced a lot of things in our lives with their advent; portable media players, handheld gaming devices, personal information managers (PIMs) and contact books are just a few of the categories that got combined in one smartphone, handling everything from communications to information management to entertainment. Apple’s iPhone, being the most popular choice for smartphone owners as of now, is no exception, and perhaps more prone to data theft than others, as the basic protection it offers is plainly a passcode. What if you want to enhance the security on your device with, say, identity of the thief (or attempting thief, to be exact)? Well, if you’re jailbroken and having a front-camera equipped iOS device (iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G or iPad 2), you’re in luck, because ICaughtU jailbreak tweak aims to do just that. Details after the break. Read More

Fix iMessage/FaceTime & Push Notifications On Hacktivated iPhone 4/3GS

iOS 5 brought with it a plethora of new features, including the infamous iMessage that allowed users to communicate with any other iOS 5 device over a WiFi/mobile data connection, effectively eliminating the cost of carrier SMS plans. While highly appreciated and useful, iMessage was something jailbroken users remained envious of, particularly those on unofficial carriers, since iMessage requires activation with iTunes before it can be used. Hacktivating your iOS 5 device bypasses that, and while you can use your iPhone 4 or 3GS, features like iMessage, FaceTime and push notifications remain unavailable unless you’re willing to pay for solutions like PushFix and MiTime. This all changed with SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module), which allows you to activate your iPhone using legitimate certificates generated through iTunes. Advantage? You get fully working push notifications, FaceTime and iMessage (iOS 5 only) without needing to spend a single buck. Read on after the jump to find out how. Read More
