Jailbreak iPad for iOS 4.3.5 using Redsn0w (no support for iPad 2 yet)

By // No comments:
Here are some pointers about the how to

  • Redsn0w 0.9.8b4 only supports a tethered jailbreak, which means that you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot.
  • If you've jailbroken your iPhone then you can use jailbreak apps such as AptBackup, PkgBackup or xBackup from Cydia to take a backup of all the jailbreak apps and tweaks so you can reinstall them easily after successfully jailbreaking your iPhone rather then installing them individually.
  • Redsn0w 0.9.8b4 doesn't support iPad 2.

To learn the step by step procedure, visit this blog post How To Jailbreak iPad 1 Using Redsn0w For iOS 4.3.5 [Windows / Mac].

Swipe navigation maybe coming to Symbian Belle

By // No comments:

Hold on to your S^3 handsets a little longer because it looks like Meego-Harmattan's (Nokia N9) Swipe UI will be coming to Symbian Belle (excited much!).

A tipster from My Nokia Blog spotted a document on regarding symbian design guideline that talks about integration of new UI model for symbian post Anna utilizing Qt Quick components.

Symbian releases after Anna will introduce a number of changes in the design and user experience. Qt Quick components 1.0 for Symbian is the first implementation that follows the new Symbian design guidelines. By using Qt Quick components 1.0 for Symbian, applications will not only have a fresh new look, but will also comply with the evolving Symbian style.
I will be holding on to my N8 even if I buy a Nokia Windows Phone 7 in the future. Aside from N8's awesome camera, I'm also looking forward to Symbian belle's new UI even before information about Swipe's integration was heard.

How to jailbreak (untethered) iPhone and iPad on iOS 4.3.3 using

By // No comments:
This is the first time I jailbreak an IOS device and was very skeptical at first, fearing i might get my gadget bricked. The first versions of jailbreaking software also uses a lot of steps and technical skills which make it very intimidating to do,  but after several reading of guides and reviews, i finally got the courage to try it on my week old iPad 2.

Without further ado, here are the steps I did: 
These steps are also applicable to iPhones and iPod touches
1. Just visit using safari browser of the device you want to jailbreak. In my case, I used safari browser of my iPad 2.
the free/install button will not appear if you are not using safari
and an iOS device such as iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
2. Click the Free button, it will change into Install button (similar to App Store's behavior when installing apps).
3. A download will begin and cydia will be installed on your app menu. Once Cydia is install, your iPad is now considered jailbroken and you can now do more magical things like installing apps not allowed by Apple on its app store or features and functionalities not available to basic iOS versions like custom themes and wireless sharing of 3g connection.
