Apple to Hold iPhone 5 Press Conference on October 5th?




Apple will reportedly hold its iPhone 5 press conference on October 5th, according to a PocketGamer source.

Our inside source says there will be a press conference announcing the new hardware on October 5th, with retail release occurring a week later. This broadly fits with the movement of recent rumours, which peaked with a - since proven erroneous - 21st October release date, bought forward to a October 15th date, according to Orange CEO Stephane Richard.

The symbolism works well too: iPhone 5, iOS 5, October 5.

The currently rumored iPhone 5 release dates have been October 7th, 14th, and 15th.




*thanks iclarified*

In my opinion it would be more reasonable that Apple would make the 5th it's release date.

Chronic Dev Team Finds 5 Userland Exploits in iOS 5




The Chronic Dev Team has announced that they've found 5 userland exploits in iOS 5 making it very likely that an untethered jailbreak will be available for the upcoming firmware.

P0sixninja made the announcement at MyGreatFest, an iCommunity and Jailbreak convention currently being held in London, England.

While this is a "record breaking number of exploits found", userland exploits can be easily fixed via a minor software update. By keeping the exploits secret, the Chronic Dev Team is hoping that Apple won't fix them before the expected iOS 5 launch next month.

Notably, if the exploits are still present in iOS 5 when it releases, this will bring a jailbreak to the iPad 2 once again.

MuscleNerd Announces a Major Update to the RedSn0w Jailbreak Utility




MuscleNerd has announced a major update to RedSn0w that removes the need to select an IPSW and brings the ability to save and submit your SHSH Blobs to Cydia.

Will be pushing out a major redsn0w feature upgrade before my trip to Korea: http://is.gd/PMAdT1 (and look, no IPSW selection button!)

The new version of RedSn0w will be released before Monday. Rather than requiring ipsw selection, RedSn0w will now automatically fetch the important pieces directly from Apple (and caches them so that it never needs to re-fetch them again).

Check out the screenshots below and stay tuned to Limerain for more info and tutorials. You can follow us on @limerain_com, Facebook page , RSS, etc using the links at the very bottom of the page...

For those wondering, the new RedSn0w "won't auto-fetch the betas (since they're not public). You need to provide them (once)."
