iPhone Alarms Will Not Work Come New Year's Day!




According to numerous complaints on twitter, it seems that the iPhone's alarm clock will not function properly come New Year's Day. This particular glitch in the iOS software will affect all users who use the alarm clock without recurring alarms. According to 9to5mac, the glitch will fix itself on January 3rd. You may recall a similar bug in the iOS software which was later on fixed in iOS 4.2.1.

For now, make sure to set all your alarm clock to reoccur, or repeat on the days you want it to. This bug is present in 4.2.1 and earlier versions of iOS 4.

iPhone Dev-Team to Update RedSn0w Beta Today, Windows Update Coming Soon




RedSn0w .9.7b4 will be released today to untether your iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak without the need for usbmuxd.

This untether is a 'backup plan' from the iPhone Dev-Team. It requires access to the iOS 4.2b3 firmware and your iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs saved.

Currently, the untether is Mac only but the next update will bring Windows support.

Today's beta4 will eliminate separate usbmuxd process (so many more Mac users can use it). After that, expand to Windows.

You can find our instructions on performing the untether here.
