Developer and hacker, Nick Pack has revealed that he has managed to successfully port Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the latest version of Android OS to a jailbroken iPhone 3G.
Hackers have previously ported Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) to iPhone 3G.
Some users have reported significant loss of GPS signal after upgrading to baseband 06.15.00 using Redsn0w or PwnageTool to unlock their iPhone.
MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has just confirmed that they are working on a solution that will allow users to downgrade their iPhone’s baseband back to 05.15.04.
If you thought you missed out on all the discounts post the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, well, you’re in for some luck. Folks over at Radio Shack has announced a week long sale that started on Saturday and will last till December 11.
The highlight of the sale are the prices at which they are offering the iPhone. Apart from offering a discount of $50 off all iPhones, they are also offering iPhone 4 for $25 with iPhone 3GS trade-in.
Apple had patched the exploit that allowed users to unlock their iPhone in iOS 4.1 released on September 8 so it has been a long wait for users who wanted to software unlock their iPhone to use it with any carrier.
Find My iPhone – the MobileMe service that lets users track their lost iPhone is now offered free with the latest iOS 4.2.1 update. This feature is available by default on the latest iOS models like iPhone 4, iPad or iPod Touch (4th generation).
However, if you are a user with an older model, it is possible to set up the location tracking feature on your iDevice provided you also have access to one of the newer models.
Looks like its turning out to be a bad time for all you iPhone 3G users out there. After the removal of support for Game Center for the device in iOS 4.1, its the turn of AirPlay to meet the same fate.
Folks over at 9to5Mac are reporting that Airplay support has been removed for iPhone 3G from iOS 4.2 GM that was released to developers last week.
PwnageTool and Sn0wbreeze will allow users who want to jailbreak and also unlock their iPhone to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1 firmware while preserving the baseband so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.
