by Hamza Tariq - on Mar 11th 2012 - No Comments

Apple has recently released the couple of updates to its popular applications, including the demanding iMovie with new interface, features and support for the new-generation iPad. However, it appears that with the launch of new iMovie 1.3 in the App Store, Apple tries to trick the iOS users as they have made the application limited only to the iOS 5.1, because they want to force users to lose their jailbreak support and run the stock IPSW files on their iOS devices instead of custom iOS versions. Many users may already have ditched the update for the jailbreak status, but still there are lot of fans that want to get latest iMovies on their devices and upgraded their devices to the latest iOS 5.1 firmware version.

It is reported that user with iOS 5.0.1 is not allowed to download the iMovie 1.3 on their device, even they are not allowed to update their existing application on the current iOS firmware, but thanks to the iOS hackers they have simply found out a trick to resolve the issue with a little work around on the device, and then you will be able to download the latest iMovie on your device. To install iMovie 1.3 on your iPhone, iPad or any other iOS device while staying at iOS 5.0.1, then you have to follow and require these files at first:

  1. First of all, a device with jailbroken iOS 5.0.1 or older iOS 5.0
  2. iMovie 1.3 IPA file downloaded on iTunes through the App Store, as you can’t able to download the application directly from the iOS App Store without performing the simple hack
  3. iFile (popular iOS root explorer Cydia tweak) available for free in the Cydia Store.

Step 1: Once you’re done with the basic requirements, heads to your device and launch iFile on the device and browser to the path “/ System / Library / CoreService” in iFile.
Step 2: Now slides the page to the bottom level, and at the end, you will find a file called “SystemVersion.plist”. Once you located the file, simply tap on the file and chose “Text Viewer” from the menu to open the file on your device.

iOS 5.1 Brings “4G” LTE Indicator On AT&T iPhone 4S

by Hamza Tariq - on Mar 8th 2012 - No Comments

Last year, when Apple has announced its next-generation iPhone 4S in the public without any new design changes, and the adoption of the HSPA+ network instead of 4G LTE technology. We have heard that Apple and AT&T had been working together on the secret iOS 5.0 builds that allow both companies to bring 4G LTE technology on the iPhone 4S with a simple mask changing of the 3G network icon to the 4G icon, whenever the device is available under the HSPA+ strong signals, and able to use the maximum range of HSPA+ network.


It is reported that both AT&T and Apple had been working together to update the AT&T network indicator on the AT&T iPhone 4S devices, and allow the iPhone 4S devices to read the HSPA+ signals as “4G” in the device status bar whenever the device is connected to any HSPA+ network. However, that moment we had no confirmation and any clue about the reported feature arrival but now after the official launch of iOS 5.1. We come to know that both Apple & AT&T actually working on the project that was highlighted in the past by the internal sources, and the users now are able to get the “4G” indicator on their iPhone 4S whenever they connected with a HSPA+ network from their iPhone 4S.

A user posted a simple image of its iPhone 4S showing the 4G indicator on its status bar after updating its device to the latest released iOS 5.1 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The above-mentioned screenshot clearly shows the indicator masking of the 4G in the iPhone 4S. Apple has today released the iOS 5.1 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices on the iPad 3 launch media event with some bug fixes and the support of Japanese language for Siri.

by Hamza Tariq - on Mar 3rd 2012 - No Comments

While the iPad 3 is highly expected to be introduced this week with special addition of Retina Display into its specifications, the developer out there in the iOS community is working hard to get their applications updated on the exact iPad 3 launch time, and they can enjoy the new iPad 3 applications download and purchases from the Apple Store. However, many big Software house has just begun their work with rough ideas, and many other individual developers are arguing on the social network sites like Twitter, to Apple on not providing any tool to check their newly redesigned applications, especially for the Retina Display environment.


There is no utility is available to iOS developers to test their applications inside the Retina Display environment, as Apple is about to hide the addition of Retina Display into iPad 3 at end time. Apple has not yet provided any tool, but it appears that the genius developers in the iOS developer community is bit active and they have coded their own small utility that allows other developers to test their applications on the iPad 3 Retina Display environment. The famous iOS jailbreak tweak developer, Ryan Petrich comes up with an idea of iPad 3 Retina Display emulator for the developers to test their applications on the Retina Display environment.

Ryan has come up with its own coded iPad 3 additional emulator files for the latest Xcode that allow developers to simply place some extra files into Xcode, and then they can test their Retina Display carrying applications on the Retina Display optimized emulator. Moreover, the another known iOS developer named Strought-on-smith, has also displayed its application running with Retina Display in the Ryan’s developed iPad 3 emulator for the Xcode.

The developers can download the Ryan’s file from there, and can place here, if they want to get iPad 3 emulator on the latest Xcode, you have to follow this path to make changes:


Crack Apple’s FairPlay DRM From iBooks With Requiem

by Hamza Tariq - on Feb 25th 2012 - No Comments

It is reported that a group of developers has just bypassed the Apple’s used DRM technology in the iBook Store that prevents the iBooks to be opened in the third party devices, and the DRM restriction could be easily removed by the latest free version of the DRM restriction removal by the team of developers. Apple has been protecting the content of iBooks by signing it with their owned DRM technology that prevents the content to be opened on other devices, and therefore, users could not be able to launch any of the iBook or other stuff on any other device. However, now, with the Requiem 3.3 users can easily remove the DRM restriction from the iBooks, and can access their purchased data on other device Requiem is already famous among the users for removing the DRM restrictions from music and videos purchased from the iTunes Store, but now with the latest update users can also remove DRM from iBooks.


The group of developers behind the Requiem tool has claimed that new version of the tool can remove DRM technology called “FairPlay” from iBooks – a DRM technology that Apple uses on the stuff to protect it from stolen and played on other vendor devices than Apple’s iOS devices. Apple has been using the FairPlay DRM technology to protect the stuff it sells, and highly prevents it from being played or used for other party devices. According to the Requiem team, the new tool allows you to easily crack the e-books that you have purchased from the iBookStore, and allow the content to be played on third party devices and e-readers.

Requiem 3.3 would be really useful for you, if you have built up a huge library of books using the iBookStore, and while purchasing you have not heard about such a restriction on the content, and now you the books were useless without iOS device, because Apple has protected the date with DRM. However, now you can easily remove the restriction, and access the content on any other device like Amazon Kindle
