Since the evasi0n jailbreak, statistics have shown up all over twitter and blogs, today the latest statistic is that 7 MILLION devices have been hacked with the #Evasi0n software released by well known developers such as musclenerd, planetbeing etc.
What more astonishing than this, since I bought my iPhone 1st generation from the USA back in September 2007, we’ve had a pretty consistent jailbreak scene. That was until the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, months past and people bought these new devices and took them for what they are, secure by Apple and just like everyone else’s device.
It hit me that the majority of Jailbreakers in the past either gave up their jailbreaks for newer devices, or kept hold of older devices for the jailbreak on so old firmware….
Today we now have 22 different devices with the eligibility to Jailbreak with ease. Not only 22 devices but people who might have never Jailbroken before. The next generation of iDevice users.
I’ve certainly noticed the increase of questions about jail breaking on my YouTube videos and twitter @ replies. With this new jailbreak, we hope it will inspire the next generation of Jailbreakers to create new program’s and tweaks for its 7 million users (so far)
What do you think of jail breaking, are you new to Apple ecosystem, let us know in the comments below or on twitter.

The iOS interface for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch isn’t bad for most uses. It’s clean and neglected buttons are scarce. But when you run into a task that wasn’t anticipated by Apple, the elegant simplicity of iOS’s design can become a chore. One example of this is when you need to delete a lot of files. There’s no shift-select option by default. Each item needs to be tapped on individually before it can be deleted, even in edit mode. Continue reading→

What fun would a powerful smartphone be without having the ability to share information with the world through one of the popular social media networks? With Apple’s last major release of iOS, we saw the inclusion of native sharing of info to the Twitter network and it looks likely that more services will be added in future releases of iOS, but until that time comes, some additional installations through Cydia should suffice.
The InstaSocial tweak comes from the developer of InstaTwitter and InstaFacebook, two individual widgets for Notification Center that exist as single entities and allow information to be posted to the social networks. The purpose of InstaSocial seems to go a few steps further and offers users a premium social sharing experience directly from Notification Center.
After installation, InstaSocial is activated like all Notification Center-based widgets. Switching the Notification Center toggle to ‘On’ will place the widget directly within Notification Center. As is always the case with these type of widgets, it is also compatible with the Dashboard X package, meaning that all of the functionality can also be accessed from the home screen.
InstaSocial pretty much does as the name suggests by giving instant social sharing options to the device through the integration of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+. A native looking alert pop up provides users with the ability to choose the network of their choice, and also gives them the ability to upload media through the Camera Roll or directly from the native Camera app itself, and to top it off, you can add a custom caption to the image being uploaded using the iOS keyboard or by using voice dictation.
There can be no denying that InstaSocial provides a decent way to.
If you are reading this, then chances are you are already running iOS 5 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. As you may already know, one of the most notable new feature in the iOS 5 is the fully revamped notification system called Notification Center.

This is especially true concerning the jailbreak scene because developers seem to flock on the new notification system in order to develop tweaks and apps. Now here are the top 10 awesome jailbreak widgets and tweaks for iOS 5′s Notification Center.
NOTE: Most of these tweaks and widgets do not have a Springboard icon for activation and configuration. But most of them can be activated / deactivated by navigating to Settings.app and to the Notifications section. Continue reading→

Since the early days of Jailbreaking, Emoji has been a popular tweak for many to have. Later adopted by Apple in international keyboards via and apps in the AppStore, then at the beginning of iOS5, Emoji was a standard iOS feature.
