iPhone hack - iRemember

If you are facing the issue of needing to login everytime you load Google Reader in your iPhone’s Safari browser and its driving you insane then iRemember, a lightweight hack is just the solution for you.

iRemember fixes this irritating issue by making a few tweaks and allowing iPhone’s Safari to save cookies.

Before I start telling you more about iRemember, the issue of needing to login everytime is not with Google Reader but with iPhone’s Safari browser as it it doesn’t save usernames and passwords when you have entered them.

iRemember fixes this irritating issue by making a few tweaks and allowing iPhone’s Safari to save cookies.

It apparently does some chmodding and chowning (changing the owner from
"root" to "mobile") and and tells you it’s "safe to uninstall" before Installer even finishes cleaning up.

You will need to jailbreak your iPhone to install this hack.

You can check out one of these iPhone software to jailbreak your iPhone: ZiPhone 3.0 – New version of Popular tool to JailBreak and Unlock iPhone or iLiberty: Easy to use Application to JailBreak, Activate and Unlock iPhone. As part of the jailbreaking process ZiPhone or Liberty will also install the Installer App.

Before hacking your iPhone it is a good idea to take a backup of your iPhone so you can restore it.

To install the hack via the Installer you need to add
its software repository to the Installer app. Here are the simple
steps that you need to follow to achieve this:

  • Launch the Installer app by tapping its icon on your iPhone’s home screen.
  • Tap “Sources” button.
  • Then tap “Edit” in the upper-right corner.
  • And tap “Add” in the upper-left corner.
  • Enter the URL of the source: http://repo.ispazio.net.
  • Press “OK”.
  • Installer app will add the source, and you can then search for iRemember to install it.

As always we will love to know if you found this hack useful.
