    Comex hired by Apple!!

    If he has the chance to be in some high level position at the largest company in the US, then who can blame him? I don't think he's a sellout at all. Hacking is a hobby and he loves Apple products. I don't recall him ever leading a philosophical crusade against Apple.

    Best Top 5 Cydia iPad Apps & Tweaks To Install For 2011

    Not sure if I can name five, but XBMC should definitely be on here. I'm almost wishing that I didn't spend so much on a home theater computer now.

    I've heard 4.3.4 to be released in few days, make sure you JB now!

    I think I know the answer already, but I jailbroke my iPad 2 (just got a replacement) and Cydia has "SHSH: 4.3.3" at the top. I know this generally means that Cydia has my blobs, but I didn't use TinyUmbrella or see a "Make my life easier" button in Cydia. Does it save your blobs automatically now?

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Chat Thread

    I need to exchange my iPad 2 soon.. There is very bad bleeding (light bleed that takes up a quarter of the screen in just one spot) and I get less than 7 hours of battery life, which is being generous (I had an iPad 1 before and know what it should be) Anyway, how long does Apple take to...

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Chat Thread

    What I meant was, if the leaked JB was the old vulnerability (which was patched with 4.3.1) instead of a new one (unpatched, assuming there is one), Apple would be in no hurry to release 4.3.4. This would tell us if it actually was a new JB that will work on all versions. Has anyone tried the...

    If Apple doesn't release 4.3.4 in a few days that patches the vulnerability in this jailbreak, we will know it is the vulnerability from 4.3 that they supposedly did patch.

    I saw that too, but it is still pretty coincidental. If he was planning on releasing a jailbreak on it, you'd think this Drudge person would wait a few weeks for the JB to be released and for it to be mentioned in several hundred media articles.

    Yes, he released an enigmatic teaser on jailbreakme.com and told people to keep visiting it until it was released. Now, after receiving all of those page views, it is being auctioned off. Coincidence? Here's a hint: The URL's appraisal value is directly linked to page views.

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Chat Thread

    If he isn't releasing it because someone leaked a beta, he was never going to release it in the first place. How exactly does it hurt him? I've stopped posting/checking this site recently because I have little faith that it will ever be released. I think Apple has gotten involved to prevent new...

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Chat Thread

    Why was the 4.3 one the only one leaked? Why is he even working on the 4.3 release? One would think that unless a jailbreak would work universally for all iOS versions, only the latest version would be worked on. There's not much of a point to releasing a JB for earlier versions. Are we even...

    I've talked about this as well. Keeping a jailbreak from being released on their flagship product is probably worth tens of millions to them, if not hundreds. The comex leak is what made me think of it.

    iOS 5- what would you like to see for iPad?

    I want them to do something about AutoCorrect. For example, why does my iPad always change "its" to "it's"? "Its" is pretty common. I know it's a pain to add an apostrophe while typing, but if it does it at all, it should know if the usage is correct or incorrect as MS Word does. Also, product...

    I can't quote the person who said it because the other thread is closed, but I think whoever said comex's iPad can't be 4.3 is probably mistaking him with i0n1c. Comex jailbroke his iPad right after launch.

    Severely limited iBookstore! Is this India specific?

    You capitalized "all", so I assume you mean that 100% of them are free and older than April 2010 without exception. In this case, I can say with certainty that it must be India specific because there are many books that you need to pay for. iBooks in the USA has all of the latest best sellers...

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    If it was patched in 4.3.1, then it is patched in 4.3.3. I don't know why Apple would patch a security hole only to open it back up in a later version. About the hardware part... Is this to say that if SHAtter was never discovered, the iPad 1/iPhones would be in the same position as iPad 2...

    Do you think the smart cover is the best case for ipad 2?

    The Smart Cover is really nice. It protects the most important part of the iPad and is very useful functionally as well. The ability to use it as a stand is brilliant, and it really does clean the front to a large extent. There are probably two types of people who buy covers. People who them...

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    My experience is that if you go into an Apple store, they replace it right there and you walk out of the store with a replacement. When you send it in through the mail, you must send it back first. I sent back an iPod one time and I think it took 2-3 days to get another one from the time I sent...

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    I think the Galaxy Tab is going to have the Exynos SoC, isn't it? I heard Samsung enabled hardware acceleration for it, although I could be mistaken. And Silent Assassin.. I'm definitely not here to pressure the Dev Team to release a jailbreak faster. I don't expect them to care. I also don't...

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    Does anyone think the lack of a JB will boost other tablet sales? The pragmatic side of me says it won't because the hacking community is usually unimportant, but I have to say, with the new Galaxy Tab coming out, I'm reaching the end of my patience. I'm feeling claustrophobic over here.

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    Unless they've fixed something recently, they all have it. I'm sure the employee knows what you're talking about, but he's not about to admit that every device of their flagship model has a pretty significant flaw (to some). The good news is that it isn't noticeable. To see it, you need to have...

    I had little choice but to update.. The battery on my iPad 2 is really bad compared to my iPad 1. I wanted to update before sending it back for a replacement because Apple doesn't usually replace batteries I don't think. Needless to say, it's still crap and I haven't sent it back. But... A...

    You've got to be kidding. I updated from 4.3 like a week ago because I figured that they wouldn't work on an OS that old. I am going to cry

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    So if we don't see anything by the 19th, can we agree to stop talking about/unfollow the offenders and make them struggle for relevance? I guess that would be hard to do since others rely on them for iPhone/iPad1 JBs. I'd love it for a group of Chinese hackers to come up with one out of no where...

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    I think it would do some good to just ignore/unfollow the devs messing with people and hope they fall into obscurity. I'm sure they'll be dying for attention after realizing that their fans make them who they are in just about every way. I for one may not w be donating anything this time. Also...

    Charging for it would be stupid. It would be on bittorrent/rapidshare in seconds. On the other hand, some incentive might be the only way to get things done.

    This all looks very sketchy to me. Why would i0n1c, msuiche, etc., all be discussing it publicly without actually announcing it? It's like they're messing with us!

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    Just an fyi, it doesn't seem like Tiny Umbrella is saving SHSHs for subsequent firmware. I seriously doubt that we're going to see a jailbreak before the iPhone 5, if that. I don't like to talk bad about people, but I'm starting to doubt the resolve of the Dev Team. It seems like they avoid all...

    From the website: "Here’s the interesting part, The Dev’s behind dumping the iPad 2 BootRom and this new jailbreak are not releasing themselves." Could this just be about the msuiche jailbreak? It didn't sound imminent when news of it broke. I wonder if we'll see a mysterious leak...

    Torrents on the iPad 2

    Also, downloading TV shows is not illegal in most countries. Bittorrent.com, mininova.com, vuze.com are all legal distributors of content. I have a hard time believing there are no torrent clients for iOS though. I've tried at least 5 on my Droid X, not counting remote torrent managers. I...

    Can you move files (ppt, word, excel epub) from your pc to the ipad 2?

    iBooks reads epub. I think you add them into your library normally once you've installed it (File > Add files to library, something like that). GoodReaders reads a lot of files, including .doc, .ppt, etc. I think it even reads zip files. You just can't edit them. Pages is my preferred word...

    Can you move files (ppt, word, excel epub) from your pc to the ipad 2?

    You can do it in iTunes. In the left panel, click on your iPad's name (should be something like Joe's iPad or whatever). In the main panel on the right, you'll see "Apps". Click on it and scroll to the bottom. You'll see a list of a few apps depending on what you have installed. Choose the one...

    IPAD 2 jailbreak 4.3

    I'm sure Apple is very happy with themselves. Almost two months with no jailbreak. Am I correct to assume that this is unprecedented? Also, if you pull your SHSH using TinyUmbrella, does it save your future SHSHs? It did with my iPad 1.. or maybe it was Cydia?

    Considering an iPad, But..

    Try to read the Huffington Post on your iPad. The videos are all aggregated from many other popular news sites and none of them work. None. Not unless it's a YouTube video, and they rarely are. I don't see how people can say they never run into Flash videos.

    Is it worth upgrading from iPad1 to iPad2

    Pretty much every Android tablet has a dual core CPU as well though. It remains to be seen if the Tegra 2 can be brought up to the speed of the A5 through drivers, but the Samsung CPU/GPU in the new Galaxy Tab is actually faster. I agree though.. I don't have my iPad for games.
