How to Save Your iPhone SHSH Blobs Using RedSnow (Windows)

These are instructions on how to backup and save your iPhone SHSH Blobs to Cydia using RedSn0w for Windows.

Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download RedSn0w from 0.9.9b1 here and place it in the Pwnage folder.

Extract the RedSn0w zip file into the same folder.



Step Two
Launch the redsn0w application from the redsn0w folder we just extracted.



**Windows 7 users should run the redsn0w executable mode as an administrator in Windows Vista compatibility mode. You can do this by right clicking the executable and selecting Properties from the contextual menu.


Step Three
Once RedSn0w opens click the Extras button



Step Four
Click the SHSH blobs button from the Extras menu.




Step Five
Click the Fetch button to fetch the SHSH blobs on your device and send them to the Cydia server for storage.




Step Six
Please plug your iPhone into the computer and make sure its OFF then click the Next button




Step Seven
RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode. You can find more help with DFU mode here




Hold down both the Home button and the Power button for 10 seconds.



Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.



Step Eight
Your iPhone will now reboot




Step Nine
RedSn0w will then begin fetch the SHSH blobs from your device and submit them to Cydia.







Step Ten
Once this is complete you will be notified that your submission was a success. Click the Back button to return to RedSn0w.



Step Eleven
Click the SHSH blobs button and then click the Query button to make sure Cydia has your blobs saved.






Step Twelve
Enter * into the ECID textfield and click OK to check all your devices.



Step Thirteen
RedSn0w will now query Cydia and display the list of stored blobs.






Important:
RedSn0w also saves your blobs in a plist located within the RedSn0w folder. We would recommend keeping these for added safety.

Hackers slap Lion overlay onto iOS, with surprisingly good results




Not, “put this on my iPhone now” good but “wow, that’s interesting and must’ve taken a lot of hard work good”. Lifehacker explains:

You can now grab the theme via an app on Theme Outlet. Here’s how. (And make sure you have Dreamboard installed, as this is a Dreamboard theme and requires it.)

Open Cydia
Tap Manage Sources
Tap Edit, then Add, then add source fnetdesigns.com/cydia/repo
Go to the Changes section and install Theme Outlet
Close Cydia, go to your home screen, and open Theme Outlet
Browse for OS X Ultimatum and download it from there
Open up Dreamboard, browse for the OS X Lion Ultimatum theme, and install it.

Massive Apple stores due this week in Hong Kong, Shanghai, new store in Vancouver UPDATED 2x

UPDATE 1 [Monday, September 19, 2011 at 11:55am ET]: This article has been updated with additional store photos included below the fold, at the bottom of the article…

UPDATE 2 [MONDAY, September 19, 2011 at 3:40Pm ET]: The Metrotown Apple Store in Canada has been confirmed on the official Metrotown account on Twitter.

Following grand openings last week, Apple remains adamant to open additional stores worldwide in order to meet its self-proclaimed goal of having thirty new brick-and-mortar spots ready by the end of September, coinciding with the expected launch of the next-generation iPhone.

B. C. Metrotown, Vancouver, Canada - Apple is opening a new retail space shortly in the Metrotown mall, the biggest flagship mall of British Columbia in Canada. The store was not listed on Apple’s retail site at press time so grand opening may not be imminent yet. Apple also operates three other stores in British Columbia, the Oakridge Centre store, the Pacific Centre store and the Richmond Centre location.

UPDATE: iPhoneinCanada.ca notes that Metrotown on Twitter confirmed the September 24 grand opening. Apple’s store is located “on the top floor of the mall nearby Guess, Lululemon and Mexx”, the site adds. Mark your calendars: The new Apple Store at @MetropolisatMet will open on September 24th, reads the tweet, which appears to have been subsequently removed.

Nanjing East, Shanghai, China – A listing for this massive store on Apple’s Chinese retail site mentions grand opening this coming Friday, September 23. Recent photos reveal a wide building adorned with the red curtain promotional signage matching that on Apple’s retail site. Shanghai’s third store sporting five levels is located at the corner of Nanjing Road East and Henan Zhong Lu, within walking distance of the city’s famous skyscraper panorama and right within The Bund, a major tourist attraction consisting of the wide avenue of historic buildings.

The Nanjing East place will be Apple’s biggest store in China yet and their sixth store in the country (including the upcoming Hong Kong store). It is said to sport four floors of retail space. Shanghai is also the home to the spectacular cylindrically shaped Pudong store and the Hong Kong Plaza store.

Both these stores pale in comparison with a massive new store opening in the heart of Hong Kong’s financial centre.

Netflix spins off by-mail group as Qwikster




Some interesting news from Netflix this morning: They are spinning off their by mail group, which will also include video games and giving it a new name ‘Qwikster’.

While the video below and the announcement blog post set a conciliatory tone for the way the recent changes (price hikes) happened, those changes are still in place and will continue going forward.


In fact, it sounds like Netflix is set to spin off its old mailing business in the future even though in-house Qwikster now sells game rentals as well as movies and TV shows.

The future of video and gaming is clearly streaming and it appears that Netflix doesn’t want to be associated with that entity.

Apple, for what it is worth, has been shunning optical for years, refusing to put Blu-ray optical discs in its Macs or Apple TV products and instead pushing the streaming of media.
