How to Jailbreak iOS 6 with RedSn0w 0.9.15b
Downloads

Download RedSn0w 0.9.15b2 (Windows or Mac OS)
Download iOS 6 (you do not need to download iOS 6 firmware if you are already on iOS 6)

Step 1
First of all you need to update your iPhone 4, 3GS, or iPod Touch to iOS 6 either manually or Over-The-Air. Checkout our detailed guide on how to update to iOS 6.

Important: If you depend on UltraSn0w or Gevey SIM unlock you MUST follow our guide on how to update to iOS 6 without updating baseband instead.

Step 2
Extract the RedSn0w zip file and run the RedSn0w.

OS X users – use Ctrl-Click and Open if on Mountain Lion for now
Windows – Right-click and  run in Administrator Mode

Make sure that your iPhone 4/3GS or iPod Touch 4G is connected. Now Click on the Jailbreak button.

Step 3
Now Turn OFF you device and click the Next button;

Follow the on-screen instructions to enter DFU mode. Also checkout our guide on how to put iPhone in DFU mode.

Release the Power (corner) button for 3 seconds
Without releasing the Power button, also hold down the Home button for 10 seconds
Without releasing the Hom button, release the Power button BUT keep holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.


RedSn0w will begin exploiting your connected iPhone or iPod Touch with limera1n and then it will begin preparing jailbreak data.

Step 4
Now select  Cydia from the options and click Next button. Your device will reboot and then RedSn0w will upload the new RAM Disk and Kernel.

Once the jailbreak process is completed, RedSn0w will notify you that this is a tethered jailbreak. Click the Ok button, close the RedSn0w and follow the further instructions to Tethered Boot your device.

How to Tether Boot

re-Run the Redsn0w
Hit Extras, then Just Boot.
Hit next, follow the on-screen instructions to enter into DFU mode.

This should boot your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPod Touch 4G into tethered jailbreak mode. Don’t forget to repeat the tether boot process every time you reboot your device.

I’m not obsessed with weather apps as much as I am with text editors. Throughout 2012, several developers came out with their own takes on presenting weather data in beautiful interfaces with custom designs; however, when it comes to weather, in spite of my non-obsession, I demand efficiency. Most of the time, many of the “great-looking” weather apps only focus on capturing the user’s attention with pixels, whereas weather software should, in my opinion, pay attention to data quality and information density more than anything else.
For the past week I’ve been using Check the Weather

by David Smith, and, interestingly enough, I haven’t gone back to Apple’s Weather app yet. Like I said, I’m not obsessed with weather apps for iOS, but I like to try a new one every once in a while. In the past months I’ve always ended up going back to Apple’s app after a few hours – so there must be something Check the Weather is doing well.
I don’t want advanced data that I don’t understand from a weather app. To grasp the reason why I’m liking Check the Weather, I made a list of the features I need from a weather app:

What’s the weather like today
What’s the weather going to be like later today
What’s the temperature going to be like today
When is the sun rising (I live in Italy, work on a US timezone, so I see the sunrise every morning)
What’s the weather going to be like tomorrow
What’s the weather going to be like this week

With these few “requirements”, I can get a pretty clear overview of weather conditions and temperatures. Check the Weather is remarkably good at this because it presents many data points without cluttering the interface.
Check the Weather is a dashboard for weather conditions. At the top, there’s a bar that indicates your current location and, through a subtle animation, when the app is checking for updated data. Immediately below this bar, you’ll find the current temperature and weather conditions for your location. And then, underneath conditions, one my favorite features of the app: a graph of temperature for the next 12/15 hours. It’s a simple and effective way to visualize temperature changes (like how it dramatically drops between 6 and 8 PM).
Continuing with the main screen, the bottom part is dedicated to showing weather conditions and low/high temperature forecasts for the next three days and sunrise/sunset times. I particularly appreciate the sunrise functionality, as I mentioned above, and I find it somewhat curious that several developers decide not to include it. I also found it accurate for my location (Viterbo, Italy), and I only noticed a few days ago that moon phase is included in this section as well.
One thing that’s immediately distinctive about Check the Weather is its design. Different from any other weather app I’ve tried, Check the Weather makes extensive use of Hoefler & Frere-Jones’ font Idlewild for all its weather forecasts. While I wasn’t sure about this choice at first, within a few days I’ve come to appreciate the unique look of Check the Weather – this app is not yet another Clear clone. Check the Weather is different (a weather app with a very specific font and focused on data rather than prettiness isn’t something you see every day), and I like it. I can see, though, why this is also a very bold (no pun intended) move on Smith’s side: sometimes, people just want pretty pixels heavy on graphics and animations.
Check the Weather is unique in how it approaches the trend of placing additional information in a panel on the side. The app, in fact, uses two panels to display hourly forecasts and extended forecasts for the next 12 days. Hourly forecasts are nicely implemented, as “dark hours” are embedded between sunset and sunrise – as they should be. I don’t typically use extended forecasts (I think predicting 10 days in advance is a bit too much), but I like how they’re presented nevertheless.
As an Italian who reviews weather apps, the typical dreaded moment arrives when it’s time to talk about data. Simply put: if you live in the US you’ll have more features. While Check the Weather tries to be “global” with accurate data by HAMweather, there are several functionalities that are US-only, such as hazardous weather alerts from the National Weather Service, a doppler radar precipitation map, and integration with Dark Sky for minute-by-minute precipitation forecasts. I haven’t been able to test this, but David told me that Dark Sky API data is available in the precipitation view (swipe up from main screen). I believe Check the Weather is the first app to integrate with the recently announced Dark Sky API, and, even though it doesn’t support push notifications yet, it is a huge plus for US customers. As an Italian, all I can say is that weather data and forecasts were accurate and in line with Yahoo weather (the provider Apple uses).
One thing I’ve noticed about Check the Weather: it is localized in 7 languages (including Italian), and it is fully VoiceOver-enabled.

Check the Weather’s support for VoiceOver allows users to listen to forecasts.

Check the Weather is refreshingly different. It doesn’t look like any other weather app I’ve tried, and it leverages its uniqueness to provide weather data in a variety of ways that I find useful and intuitive. What I like most about Check the Weather is that it brings me the information I need without confusing me with custom menus or complicated interface designs. At this point, I only hope David will find a way to add more international weather providers and release an iPad version of the app.
Check the Weather is available at $2.99 on the App Store.

Apple rolled out a new update on iCloud website that allows users to share reminders to your contacts. This excellent feature of reminder sharing was only available on Mountain Lion OS, but now you can log in to the iCloud website.
Basically, you share reminders to other contacts via email or the reminder application via the iCloud website.

To share a reminder:
Step 1: Go to iCloud.com and enter your log-in details.
Step 2: Click the Reminder app on the iCloud dashboard.
Step 3: Click the small Wi-Fi icon found on the left side of the app.
Step 4: You’

ll see the Share Reminder dialog box. Enter the name you wish to include in the list.
Step 5: Click Done.
Unfortunately, this feature has not yet come to iOS devices. But we hope that Apple will make a way  to integrate it on iOS 6 soon.
Here’s what MacNN said,
“Apple will likely add the feature to the iOS version of Reminders in a future update, though there has been no official word on when that might happen. Trying to access iCloud.com on an iOS device redirects users to services such as Find My iPhone and Find My Friends or offers to help set up iCloud on the device, since most of the services on iCloud.com are already built into an iOS device.”
We look forward to the iOS 6 update. This reminder is functional especially when you have plenty of tasks to do.
What do you think about the new feature? How do you find this guide? Don’t forget to share this post with your friends.

Being born in Denmark, I have always had a love for Hugo the Troll, the fuzzy guy first entertained Danish TV viewers in 1989 when he hosted his own TV show, where viewers could call in and direct Hugo using the buttons on their phone. In 2009 the royal library declared that Hugo would be one of the representatives of the Danish digital cultural heritage.
In 2011 Hugo Retro Mania was released with great success, and now the developers have released Hugo Troll Race, which so far has had unprecedented success for a Danish designed app, Hugo Troll Race is the classic avoid the train ga

me that millions have played as kids, now it has made its way unto Iphone and Ipad.The basics of the game is very simple, you sit in a cart and jump from side to side to avoid obstacles and oncoming trains.
In just three days the game has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times, making it the most downloaded app in 25 countries, as well as making it the most successful Danish games for IOS.
“We are very pleased with the development. The fact that the new Hugo games will be No. 1 in 25 countries in just three days with a marketing budget of 20,000 Danish Kroner( $3,500) tells us that there is a very large market for Hugo” says Henrik Mallet, CEO of Hugo Games A/S .
Henry Mallet also said that there are plans for another Hugo-game for the summer holidays the 2013th

Earlier this week, one iPhone Dev-Team member teased a new version of Redsn0w that would allow users to downgrade their A5-powered devices — including the iPhone 4S, the iPad, and the new iPad — to iOS 5.0.1 and above for jailbreaking. That update is now out and available to download. Redsn0w version 0.9.11b1 can be [...]

Pod2G, the hacker behind many popular jailbreaks is now working on finalizing the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPhone 4 and older iOS 5.1.1 supported devices. Pod2G has just posted iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak FAQ on his blog to answer some of the questions he’s being asked over and over via twitter and email.
Hit the jump for the video demo of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak and FAQ posted by pod2G…


The good news is that the iOS 5.1.x untethered jailbreak will be out in a couple of weeks and Pod2G won’t hold it off

for iOS 6.
He writes on his blog answering following questions:
The poll about releasing now or waiting for 6.0 ended with a 64% / 33% to release ASAP. Where is the link ? ETA ? How much % done ? etc.
As I said earlier in twitter, there’s still a lot to do to have a user friendly and well tested tool to install the jailbreak on end users devices. Expect a release in a couple of weeks.
Will it be compatible with my ?
It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1 except iPod 3G, iPhone 3Gs and ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows).
Why is it so slow to release now that the iPad 3,1 has been demoed ?
There are 16 different devices out there to work on and to test. It takes time.
May I be a beta tester?
No, sorry. Only really trusted people (that can be counted on one hand) could have access to the jailbreak. I don’t want any leak to happen.
What if I offer you 1,000,000$ ?
That doesn’t change a thing.
This untethered 5.1.1 jailbreak will be compatible with all iOS 5.1.1 devices such as iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and Apple TV 2. Apple TV 3 is not yet supported by this jailbreak.
Update#1:
As I already said on twitter, iPod 3G and iPhone 3GS won’t be compatible with the upcoming jailbreak.
