 As a custom now, we need to continue following up with the Jailbreak thingy and today i'll be showing you how to semi-untethered jailbreak your iPhone 4 running the latest iOS 7.1.1 using Geeksn0w jailbreaking tool version 2.9.
But before we begin i'd like to warn that this process is at your own risk however i can semi guarantee you nothing serious will happen to your iPhone(unless you didn't follow the instruction below properly, all you just need to do is put your phone back to DFU mode and start all over).
What's the consequence or meaning of this Semi-Untethered Jailbreak ?
 IMPORTANT: This is a Semi-Untethered Jailbreak. this means that you can reboot your iPhone without computer and use stock apps / App store apps; but in this way, Cydia, all Jailbreak extensions, Mail, Safari, Calculator and Weather won't wor until you do a tether boot using Geeksn0w(opensnow).

Haven said that lets proceed...
 Toolz to be downloaded: Java JRE Offline mode, DotNet Framework and of course iTunes  

Let's start!

  1. Download GeekSn0w 2.9 from the official site
  2. Extract the downloaded zip file and run the exe file inside (Run as Administrator)
  3. Now put your iPhone 4 in DFU mode. Just hold down the Home and Power button for 10 seconds, at the end of the latter, release the Power button while continuing to hold only Home button until GeekSn0w respond. Or another way is to hold down the home button and power button at the same and then listen to your PC when it makes that first sound, immediately remove your hand off the power button while still holding the home button(the iPhone should be blank now)
  4. Geeksn0w should have started(Your PC must be Internet enable else it won't work!)
  5. Geeksn0w procedure is fully automated, you'll just have to wait(but don't go take any coffee stay alert! take note lol)
  6. About halfway through the procedure, you will again be asked to set up your iPhone 4 in DFU Mode. Once done, GeekSn0w continue to work.
    9
  7. The phone will reboot in about a minute and come to your home screen, at this point GeekSn0w will be showing the message "Waiting for device to be ready (this will take a lot)".
  8. After about two minutes(perhaps more but don't remove your iPhone), your iPhone will restart automatically and, a few seconds after the restart, GeekSn0w will ask you for the last time to put it into DFU Mode.

    10
  9. Having done so, GeekSn0w perform once again the boot process and, at the end of the latter, It'll warn that the jailbreak has been successful!


As mentioned at the beginning of article, it is a Semi Untethered Jailbreak. Its difference from the traditional tethered is very simple: now you can reboot (power cycle) your iPhone without needing a computer at hand, but by doing so, Cydia, Mail, Safari, Calculator, Weather and all the tweaks installed with the jailbreak, will be deactivated. To reactivate them will require a tethered boot from PC. I'm pretty sure you can boot tether your iPhone using Geeksn0w?
OK here's how...
  • Put your iPhone in DFU mode.
  • Run Geeksn0w 2.9 with Administrator
  • Connect your iPhone and then Click any of the options on the screen that is for your phone which is either "iPhone 4 GSM, iPhone 4 Rev A or iPhone 4 CDMA"
  • It should show Booting with Opensnow
  • Your iPhone will restart
  • Done!

March 10 - 2014 was the date Apple released the first official iOS 7.1 although developers/users already premiered the Beta versions up till Beta 4. 

Now here's the thing, the reason why i said you shouldn't update to iOS 7.1 is because you'll end up having an iPhone/iPad that can't be Jailbroken(atleast for now) based on the recent developments on the new OS

It took me a while before laying my hands on apple product because of this so called Encrypted data issh, let me not bug you, but i just want you to know the fundamental reason i think staying glued to your Jailbroken iOS is better than updating.

Today i downloaded some .ipa files to install on my iPhone 4 and it was successful on my iPhone so suddenly i just decided to Update to the so called anticipated iOS 7.1 and BOOM! the apps disappeared. 

I checked my iTunes apps and they are still right there, i tried re-installing them and Yes! it installed but wheres it on my iPhone ? No where. So i went to research if i can just Jailbreak it and i found out it's not possible plus i can't even downgrade :/ . 

Here's the latest news on Jailbreak for iOS 7.1 and i was dismayed. From Evad3rs Official website
Evad3rs team confirmed, that Apple closed all vulnerables for Evasi0n7 utility. You can't make Jailbreak 7.1 on iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, iPad Air (5),4,3,2 and iPod Touch 5-Gen. Jailbreak 7.1 for iPhone 4 coming soon. Wait confirmed links.
Though i got happy when i found out there's a jailbreak for iPhone 4! However it's still not official, i eventually found out again that there's absolutely no difference in the iOS 7.1 with it's predecessor iOS 7.0.6. According to reports, updating to iOS 7.1 will only make more sense when you're using iPhone 5 or 5S.


Jailbreaking is sweet, Apple shouldn't kill that vibe!





The all new IPhone 6 is around the corner Folks! First of all lemme say for those of you who bought IPhone 5 and felt like the End has come? You better think again coz this New IPhone 6 with iOS 7 OS is one piece of device you're just gonna have to Crush on it!






Secondly this device is a little bit like the new BlackBerry Z30(if you take a closer look I mean from the top of it tho, but that's where the comparison ends!)



Now let's take a closer look at what this IPhone 6 has got to offer!



 First thing you should already notice is the wider screen display which is 4.7inch wide, also the Iphone comes with a softer key, this feature request was because if you're an IPhone User, the middle/Center button(which is the main button for going back to Home Menu when stuck in an application environment) used to be a lil bit hard so now that's oldskool!

A 3D camera? Whoa at first I was like what on earth those that mean! Until I watched the 3D effect from the official snippet video you're about to watch(that is if you haven't even watched it yet :-) ) and I was amazed.


The IPhone 6 came fully loaded with a Bluetooth charging technology(now that's so cool but iFear tho), the speaker also came with a surround sound system that makes you wanna listen to your song without using the earpiece or headphones.

The exciting part is that, the IPhone 6 is coming out Fall of 2014!



I'm pretty sure a lot of you will start trading your IPhone 5(what about IPhone 4? Just CoolStory it lool)

Bye for now!


Here's the Download Link to the Official IPhone 6 Video Snippet its less than 2mb: Download Mp4



WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2013) - BBM(TM) - the iconic mobile social network - will begin rolling out for Android(TM) and iPhone(R) customers around the world from September 21. Previously exclusive to BlackBerry(R) (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSX:BB) smartphones, BBM will be available as a free download in Google Play(TM) and the App Store(SM). Customers will be able to download BBM by visiting www.BBM.com from their smartphone browser.
BBM gives you a private social network for active, real conversations.
  • It's immediate. BBM is always on so you are always connected. And because messages on BBM are typically delivered and read within seconds, it's the closest thing to a live conversation.
  • You trust it. BBM always tells you that messages are delivered and read. BBM conversations come alive on a private network you can count on.
  • You control it. BBM allows you to choose your contacts and how you share your information. BBM uses a PIN so you don't have to give anyone your phone number or email address.

"BBM is a very engaging messaging service that is simple to use, easy to personalize and has an immediacy that is necessary for mobile communications," said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President for BBM at BlackBerry. "With more than a billion Android, iOS, and BlackBerry smartphones in the market, and no dominant mobile messaging platform, this is absolutely the right time to bring BBM to Android and iPhone customers."

BBM for Android and iPhone features:

BBM Chat - Enjoy real, immediate conversations with friends on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones. Not only does BBM let you know that your message has been delivered and read, it also shows you that your friend is responding to the message.
More than chat - With BBM you can share files on your phone such as photos and voice notes, all in an instant.

Keep your group in the loop - Multi-person chats are a great way to invite contacts to chat together. BBM Groups lets you invite up to 30 friends to chat together, and go a step further than multi-chat by sharing photos and schedules. And, with Broadcast Message, you can send a message out to all your BBM contacts at once.

Post Updates and stay in the know - BBM lets you post a personal message, profile picture and your current status, and lets your contacts know instantly in Updates.

Your unique PIN - Every BBM user has a unique PIN that maintains your privacy, so you don't have to give out your phone number or email address to a new or casual contact.

BBM will be available as a free download for Android smartphones running Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean (Android 4.x) beginning at 7AM EDT on September 21. BBM for iPhones running iOS 6 and iOS 7 will become available for each market on the App Store schedule of 12:01 AM local time on September 22. For more information, or to download BBM for Android or iPhone, visit www.BBM.com.

BBM will continue to evolve quickly. Later this year, BBM Channels will provide a forum for active, real conversations between you and the people, brands, celebrities, artists, service providers, communities and more, that matter to you. By creating a Channel, individuals and brands can engage their friends and communities in conversations sparked by their thoughts, ideas and passions. Subscribing to a Channel will let you join conversations with people who share your interests. In addition, BBM Video calling and BBM Voice calling are planned for availability for Android and iPhone in a future version.


Brace yourselves people its not a rumor, as we officially counting down to BBM for Andriod and iPhone devices, however its not limited to iPhones alone, also iPads and iTouchs devices too can now PING!!!.


Incase you dont know there's more in the new BBM than Pinging, BlackBerry added a feature no one ever thought of its a Channel, yes you can actually brand yourself a channel and also invite people to subscribe to it and lucky you if your channel gets popular you get the Verified icon.

BBM for iOS and Android to Launch This Summer

Apple and Android™ users this summer, with support planned for iOS7, and Android 4.2 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher, all subject to approval by the Apple App Store and Google Play. 

BBM sets the standard for mobile instant messaging with a fast, reliable, engaging experience that includes delivered and read statuses, and personalized profiles and avatars. Upon release, BBM customers would be able to broaden their connections to include friends, family and colleagues on other mobile platforms.
In the planned initial release, iOS and Android users would be able to experience the immediacy of BBM chats, including multi-person chats, as well as the ability to share photos and voice notes, and engage in BBM Groups, which allows BBM customers to create groups of up to 30 people.

“For BlackBerry, messaging and collaboration are inseparable from the mobile experience, and the time is definitely right for BBM to become a multi-platform mobile service. BBM has always been one of the most engaging services for BlackBerry customers, enabling them to easily connect while maintaining a valued level of personal privacy. We’re excited to offer iOS and Android users the possibility to join the BBM community,” said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President, Software Product Management and Ecosystem, at BlackBerry.
BBM is loved by customers for its “D” and “R” statuses, which show up in chats to let people know with certainty that their message has been delivered and read. It provides customers with a high level of control and privacy over who they add to their contact list and how they engage with them, as invites are two-way opt-in. iOS and Android users would be able to add their contacts through PIN, email, SMS or QR code scan, regardless of platform. Android users would also be able to connect using a compatible NFC-capable device.

BBM has more than 60 million monthly active customers, with more than 51 million people using BBM an average of 90 minutes per day. BBM customers collectively send and receive more than 10 billion messages each day, nearly twice as many messages per user per day as compared to other mobile messaging apps. Almost half of BBM messages are read within 20 seconds of being received; indicating how truly engaged BBM customers are.

Today, BlackBerry also announced BBM Channels, a new social engagement platform within BBM that will allow customers to connect with the businesses, brands, celebrities and groups they are passionate about. BlackBerry plans to add support for BBM Channels as well as voice and video chatting for iOS and Android later this year, subject to approval by the Apple App Store and Google Play.

If approved by Apple and Google, the BBM app will be available as a free download in the Apple® App Store(SM) and Google Play store. Additional details about system requirements and availability will be announced closer to the launch.

Just few hours into the new year, rumors has been going round about the yet unfold Apple latest smartphone IPhone 5s, though I learnt Apple won't be calling the phone 5S because they believe IPhone 4 had a lot of trouble during it first few days of release from consumers(like you) so instead of making IPhone 5 same year of the IPhone 4(which is unusual) so they named the new smart phone "IPhone 4S".

Now that we have IPhone 5 in market doing tremendously well, App developers have confirmed that Apple are currently testing the new Iphone 6 which is coming with iOS 7 on the apps been developed for IPhone 5.

A usage log from the popular apps in App store tells that the iPhone 5 is identified in app usage logs as 'iPhone 5,1' and 'iPhone 5,2' depending on which 4G LTE it uses, so the new 'iPhone 6,1' identifier is believed to be Apple's next generation model.

As noted by TNW, OS and device data can be faked, but the 'iPhone 6,1' has been traced back to an IP address in Apple's Cupertino headquarters, adding evidence to the theory that Apple is testing its seventh generation iPhone and the seventh iteration of its mobile operating system on popular apps in the App Store.

It's believed that Apple began working on iOS 7 towards the end of 2012, and that the company will soon finalise the features that we will get when the new software is released this year.

However The Commercial Times estimates that full commercial production of the rumoured iPhone 5S will begin as early as Q1 2013, with the December run expected to have made between 50,000 and 100,000 units.

Apple is also rumoured to have developed a second generation of its iPad mini with a higher resolution screen that could also go on sale this year(2013).

Well fingers are crossed let's just watch and see its still a new year tho hahaha!!!
