Returning to blog next weekend.

Hello followers. I have rec'd several emails asking where I have been.

I have taken the past several weeks off due to the loss of someone close to me.  The love of my life passed on 4/12/2011 after a courageous battle with cancer, age 27.

Here is my tribute to her and the love we shared from my personal YouTube account.

After some much needed time to reflect, I will be returning to my blog and Twitter feed next weekend.  I'm looking forward to bringing you news and new content.

Thank you for your support and I'm looking forward to getting the blog back on track.

iOS 4.3.1 Jailbreak, Guide & Links



Jailbreak was flawless. Turns out, there was so much traffic on Cydia, some of the repo sources crashed....

I will do a complete write up in the coming days.

I did have to do a fresh restore to iOS 4.3.1 to get Cydia to properly install and run.

11:30 am.

I suggest everyone wait a few days....this has been the toughest JB i've done.....I can't even get PKGbackup to run..... Sit tight until some of these issues are resolved.


Doing a clean restore in iTunes now......
Worked... I had to back up iPhone in iTunes, Restore to 4.3.1, Jailbreak, restore from backup..... good to go....

That's why I do this stuff FIRST, you don't have to suffer.
FYI, it's always better to restore to a new firmware to have a clean install...but sometimes you can slide with an update to save time....

I'll follow up once I run PKGbackup to get all of my Cydia apps back.....

Stay tuned....


Four attempts, getting blank Cydia Icon, Cydia not launching.... Hold up on this until I figure this out....waiting for a fix.....  Or....let me know if you have this issue and how you fixed it...

Redsn0w 0.9.6RC9 is live and ready to jailbreak your iDevice, untethered.

This Jailbreak is Not for iPad 2 Users, or Ultrasnow carrier unlock users.

Here's the guide and links, I will be updating my Jailbreak section once I have this done & tested.

in the meantime, if you want to proceed, HERE IS THE LINK to Redsn0w 0.9.6RC9

So far, the only reports are of a wifi bug in 4.3.1 that is not related to the JB.

It is unclear if Greenpois0n or other tools will be updated to use this exploit.

stay tuned for my results.
