Pod2G Finds Another Exploit to Jailbreak iPod Touch 2G

No comments:



Pod2G has found another exploit for the iPod touch 2G that may be used to provide a jailbreak for both MC and non-MC models.

A heap overflow exists in the iPod touch 2G (both old and new) bootrom's DFU Mode when sending a USB control message of request type 0xA1, request 0x1.

On newer devices, the same USB message triggers a double free() when the image upload is marked as finished, also rebooting the device (but that's not exploitable because the double free() happens in a row). posixninja analyzed and explained this one.

This exploit is different from the one being used for the SHAtter jailbreak.

Macs Beat Windows PCs in American Customer Satisfaction Index

No comments:



An American Customer Satisfaction Index report released Tuesday shows that PC satisfaction steadily improved in 2010 with Macs easily besting Windows PCs by a score of 86 to 78.

Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Acer and other PC makers achieved higher ratings this year than they did in 2009: They all tied with a satisfaction rating of 77. The year before, all PC makers scored a 74 rating -- except for Dell which had a score of 75.

But Apple's satisfaction rating also rose last year, blowing past its rivals with a score of 86, up from 84 in 2009. This year marks the seventh straight year in which Apple led the PC category.

"The biggest asset Apple has had for a long time is its commitment to innovation," said David VanAmburg, managing director of ACSI, an Ann Arbor-based research group. "Others are improving, but the whole world watches Apple when it comes up with its new products each year."

Adobe Unveils Photoshop Elements 9 & Adobe Premiere Elements 9

No comments:



Adobe today announced Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 & Adobe Premiere Elements 9 for Windows and Mac, the newest release of the No. 1 selling consumer photo- and video-editing software. Available as standalone products or as a single retail package, the Photoshop Elements 9 and Adobe Premiere Elements 9 bundle offers the most complete photo and video editing solution delivering two powerful yet easy-to-use products at a very compelling price point. This release also brings Premiere Elements to the Mac platform for the first time.

"For the first time, both Windows and Mac users can do more with their photos and video with Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 bundle – a unified solution for all photo and video needs," said Kevin Connor, vice president of product management for Digital Imaging, Adobe. "With industry-leading products like Photoshop and Premiere Pro in the family, Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements are uniquely positioned to leverage the technology the pros use. Our goal is to deliver our customers intelligent and accessible features that do all the heavy lifting, empowering them to easily share high-impact memories with friends and family."

Create Compelling Photos and Videos with Groundbreaking Features
Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 feature all the tools users need to make the most of their photos and videos. Adapted from Photoshop CS5’s celebrated Content Aware Fill feature, the content intelligence in the Spot Healing Brush analyzes what’s in the image and quickly de-clutters or repairs photos (like removing tourists from a crowded scene) with a swipe of a brush, magically filling in the background. Several new Guided Edit options walk users step-by-step through the process of achieving cool editing effects such as Out of Bounds, making an element of a photo appear to leap off the page in 3D, creating pop art masterpieces, or retouching made easy via the perfect portraits feature.

With Premiere Elements 9, users can create movies in just minutes with the help of intelligent tools that automatically fix audio problems, trim away bad footage, stabilize shaky shots and correct bad color and lighting problems. Any video can simply be turned into an animated film with Cartoon Effects, and optimized performance makes editing and viewing smooth, even in HD.

Improved Organization and Sharing
With Premiere Elements, it is easier than ever to upload and import from popular Flip Video camcorders and DSLR cameras. The Organizer allows users to tag and view photos and videos in one central place. The Auto-Analyzer helps users tag the best photos and videos and also identifies specific faces in photos. Users can quickly post photos and videos directly to Facebook, combine media together into dynamic interactive Online Albums, and create an online DVD-like viewing experience to share with friends and family. Users can customize flexible scrapbook and photo book layout designs, with drag-and-drop simplicity, for automatic placement of photos within a template or easy access to any Photoshop Elements editing feature from directly within the software. Creations can then be printed at home or through an online print service provider.

Plus Extends Software Capabilities
For added convenience, now Photoshop Elements 9 and Adobe Premiere Elements 9 Windows and Mac users have the option to purchase Plus, which offers 20GB of storage for automatic online backup and sharing (up to 15,000 photos or four hours of DVD-quality video), as well as ongoing deliveries of new tutorials, artwork and interactive online templates sent directly to the desktop software. A benefit to all Photoshop Elements users is virtually anywhere access to photos and videos online or via select mobile devices at Photoshop.com.

Pricing and Availability
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 & Adobe Premiere Elements 9 software for Windows and Mac is available now at www.adobe.com, and will be available soon at retail outlets such as Amazon.com, Apple (Mac only), Best Buy, Costco, Fry’s, New Egg, Office Depot and Office Max. The bundle is available for a suggested retail price of US$149.99, and users can purchase Plus from within the product for US$49.99/year. Plus is available in the U.S. only. Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 software for Windows and Mac are available as stand-alone products for a suggested retail price of US$99.99.

RedSn0w Updated to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G

No comments:



RedSn0w has been updated to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on the iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G

This is a beta release of redsn0w for the iPhone3G and iPod Touch 2G at FW 4.1 or 4.0. It uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that we've been using since the 2.x days. It does not include the SHAtter exploit developed by pod2g. Nothing new is revealed to Apple with this jailbreak.

IF YOU USE THE ULTRASN0W UNLOCK, PLEASE WAIT FOR PWNAGETOOL TO SUPPORT 4.1. DO NOT USE REDSN0W. That’s because to use redsn0w at 4.1, you need to already have updated to official 4.1 from Apple. If you do that, you lose the ultrasn0w unlock (possible forever).

Currently this RedSn0w 0.9.6 release is Mac OS X only; however, a Windows very will come in the near future.

You can find instructions on how to use RedSn0w here. Simply download this new RedSn0w build and use the 4.1 ipsw instead of the 4.0 one in the tutorial.

Mac Gem Gets New Features, Lower Price

No comments:



Snarbsoft has announced the immediate availability of Everplay 1.5, a major update to their light-weight alternative to iTunes. Rated five stars on MacUpdate, named a "Mac Gem" by Macworld magazine, Everplay is essentially a replacement for iTunes, but not your iTunes library. Instead of asking you to create a whole new library and start all over with arranging media or creating playlists, Everplay simply draws from your existing iTunes music, podcasts, movies, and playlists.

This means it is not really a library editing or management tool - when you're done organizing media or buying new music in iTunes, you can use Everplay as a compact, light-weight, more convenient player and social sharing tool throughout the rest of your day.

While Everplay has stripped out all non-essential stuff from iTunes, it also adds a lot of features not provided by iTunes, such as global hotkeys to control playback from any application, a mini controller on the desktop, visual player notifications and Twitter integration.

Everplay is also fully integrated with Last.fm, the web-based music listening and discovery service. You can "scrobble" your music (share a list of what you play to your Last.fm profile), love or ban tracks, share music with friends, look up bios and concerts, and much more. Last.fm paid subscribers can also listen to personalized radio.

Everplay used to be all about Cover Flow. In the new version, only library sources such as Music, Podcasts and Videos are browsed in Cover Flow mode. User playlists are displayed as a list of songs, just like in iTunes.

The new version also adds library editing capabilities. Although Everplay does not replace iTunes as your central library organizer, you can now perform basic tasks like renaming a song, correct or add missing tags, and (most importantly) set track ratings - without the need to launch iTunes.

To make sure your edits "stick" between sessions, Everplay now keeps a temporary copy of the modified iTunes library, until iTunes is launched and synced with Everplay. This ensures Everplay is always up to date, even if you don't launch iTunes for weeks, months, years...

Another feature in Everplay 1.5, is the new full screen mode. The old full screen was basically just a huge Cover Flow, like in iTunes. The new full screen is different. It presents you not only with a Cover Flow browser, but also the current playlist, upcoming songs, and all the controls of the windowed interface. It also features a Party Lock button, to prevent non-administrators from tampering with your music. When Party Lock is enabled, all player and interface controls are disabled (except for the Apple remote). You cannot quit the application, exit full screen, skip songs or adjust the sound volume. All you can do is browse playlists and add new songs to the current queue, making Everplay a true Jukebox.

The new version also adds a flip-open drawer to the browser window, displaying upcoming songs. You can add new songs to the queue by dragging songs from the browser window, delete upcoming songs by pressing the backspace key, and re-organize songs by dragging them up or down in the list. Playlists on the fly, easy as pie.

Everplay 1.5 also adds support for RegEx ("Regular Expressions") queries, meaning you can perform spotlight searches to find exactly the song or songs you are looking for. Using a simplified, intuitive form of the RegEx syntax, you can perform advanced search queries like "genre:pop name:love* -artists:abba,beatles".

Everplay now also supports lyrics. Lyrics are retrieved online from ChartLyrics, a user-driven community and one of the largest lyrics databases on the internet. Found lyrics can easily be added to iTunes - even if iTunes is not running at the time. If no lyrics are found, Everplay helps you google the lyrics and submit them to the ChartLyrics database.

The desktop mini controller got some improvements too. It now smoothly cross-fades between album artwork, and pops up on top of all windows on mouse-over. It also displays and lets you change the rating of the current song.

Everplay 1.5 adds a refined user interface and several new preferences. For example, you can now set Everplay to automatically max a song's rating in iTunes, when loving a track in your iTunes library. When banning a local track, you can set Everplay to automatically disable it in iTunes. Again, without launching iTunes.

Except for these and other new features, a lot of work has gone into improving performance and stability, making Everplay 1.5 a highly recommended update for all users.

Pricing and Availability:
Everplay 1.5 is available for download at the Snarbsoft website. A Single User License is $14.95 (USD) and may be installed on up to 3 user accounts. An extended Family License is $24.95 and may be installed on up to 10 user accounts. Registered users of Cover Stream, Snarbsoft's iTunes controller, can crossgrade to Everplay for $4.95 only.

Rovi Licensing Could Signal Live TV, DVR Features for Apple TV

No comments:



Apple's licensing of Rovi's intellectual property may signal plans for an Apple TV with live TV and DVR functionality, according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster.

"We believe this announcement is further evidence that Apple is developing live TV and DVR features for its Apple TV product, and will likely launch an all-in-one Apple Television in the next 2-4 years."

Key Points:
● Apple Licenses TV Guide Technology From Rovi; Further Evidence Of An Apple Television. Earlier today (9/20), Rovi, owners of television guidance technology Interactive Program Guide (IPG), announced a licensing deal covering Guide technology for Apple's services (e.g. iTunes) and devices (e.g. Apple TV, iPad). We believe this announcement is further evidence that Apple is developing live TV and DVR features for its Apple TV product, and will likely launch an all-in-one Apple Television in the next 2-4 years. Following its deal with Rovi, Apple would be clear to add live TV, DVR, and guidance features to its Apple TV product, which we believe is a critical step towards an all-in-one Apple Television.

● New Apple TV Will Drive Higher Volume And Is Another Step In The Direction Of An All-In-One Apple Television. We see the new Apple TV, announced on 9/1, as a meaningful change in Apple's efforts in the digital living room. We expect the addition of new content, such as Netflix, in combination with the $99 price (down from $229), will drive higher unit volumes compared to the previous version of Apple TV. We estimate Apple has been selling about 400k Apple TVs/yr, which we expect will increase to about 1.5m Apple TVs in FY11. We estimate the incremental Apple TV units would add ~$50m in revenue to FY11. The negative on Apple TV is that, with the exception of Netflix streaming and AirPlay content from other Apple devices, the device is still relatively light on content. We see the Apple TV as an important step toward an all-in-one Apple television. We continue to expect Apple to launch an all-in-one Apple television in CY12. As consumers gain comfort with connected TVs and apps on their TVs, we believe Apple will eventually take its all-in-one philosophy to the digital living room like it has with the iMac and the iTunes ecosystem.

Pod2G Leaves the Chronic Dev Team

No comments:



Pod2G, the hacker who discovered the upcoming SHAtter jailbreak, has announced that he is no longer part of the Chronic Dev Team.

From now on, I'm not affiliated with chronic dev team anymore. I'm now working independently.

This is not a big deal for final users at all, as I gave details of my SHAtter exploit to both chronic and iphone dev teams !

To clarify: I'm an exploit maker, not a jailbreak tool developer. SHAtter is my 3rd bootrom exploit (24Kpwn was a team effort tho).

We aren't exactly sure what caused the separation; however, as he noted about this should not affect end-users looking to jailbreak.

Preview of Reeder for Mac

No comments:



MacStories has gotten a preview of Reeder for Mac, the desktop version of the highly popular Google Reader client for iOS.

Reeder for Mac will change the way you consume RSS on your Mac desktop: I used to be highly dependent on the web Google Reader interface, but since I tried Reeder for Mac I made the switch. Crazy fast engine. Keyboard shortcuts. Beautiful animations. Great features. I can’t wait to share more with you guys.

The app is still in its early development stages but you can check out a couple screenshots below...
