Thursday saw the release of a new build of Cydia from its creator Jay Freeman (Saurik). Coming in at version 1.1.28, the build is marked as a beta, designed for use with the fledgling iOS 10.1.x jailbreak from Luca Todesco.
Although I still do not recommend the average user to jailbreak with Yalu for 10.1.x, those who are confident doing so and have already taken the plunge may find this Cydia release improves their experience running the jailbreak slightly.
Due to the early stage of development of the 10.1.x jailbreak, it is inherently unstable and one part of this, though by no means the largest, was that Cydia had not received any tailoring to work with it until now. Yalu seems to do some things differently from previous tools, and as a result users had been reporting various bugs with the package installer. These ranged from messages warning that the program was 32-bit and might slow down their device, to the inability to select anything within the... [Read More]
You can now download Prometheus tool to downgrade or upgrade unsigned iOS firmware version with saved SHSH2 blobs.
Tihmstar, who happens to be the developer behind the tool, has also released detailed videos showing the step by step instructions on how to go about using his tool to downgrade or upgrade a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device running on an unsigned iOS firmware version.
Before you go ahead and check out those videos though, go through the following points to see what exactly you will need in order to make use of Prometheus.
You can use Prometheus only if you have SHSH2 blobs saved for the unsigned firmware you are downgrading or upgrading to.
If you dont have SHSH2 blobs saved for the unsigned firmware you want to downgrade or upgrade to, you can no longer do so as Apple has closed the signing window.
If you want to save SHSH2 blobs for a firmware Apple is still signing,
Iwould not download and install just yet , this is in beta and mainly for developers!

Apple has released iOS 10.2 to the general public today. The last time that Apple launched an iOS update was on October 31st with iOS 10.1.1. On that same day, Apple released the developer preview of iOS 10.2. To work out the kinks, Apple iOS 10.2 went through seven beta tests before the public release. This update includes several major features and many bug fixes.
You can install iOS 10.2 by connecting your device to iTunes or downloading it by going to Settings > General > Software Update. The iOS 10.2 update is available for the following devices: iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later and iPod touch 6th generation and later

Months after the iOS 9.3 - 9.3.3 jailbreak was released, Luca Todesco decides to release a new re-jailbreaking tool to help us preserve our iOS 9.3 jailbreak forever, and not just one year like we got with the original Pangu jailbreak tool.
This thread is more a request for those who didn't updated their profile info since a while.
Be kind and update your profile info (ios version, device info mostly)
because it 's there with a reason and most of the time it 's confusing
when some of you asks for help or in many other situations.

Appears Apple, touting that the only difference between the iPhone 7's base 32GB, 128GB and 256GB models was the amount of SSD storage, wasn't being entirely truthful.
In fact they weren't being truthful at all - and it may land them in a class action lawsuit on the grounds of deceptive advertising or non-disclosure if this performance delta is repeatable with all other iPhone 7s.
It's all but certain that Apple knew about this performance gap during their extensive component testing and beta testing but chose not to make any mention of it.
The speed deficit is in both the read speed between the two memory options, but more stunningly, the write speed - where the 32GB model is some 88% slower than the 128/256 version in benchmark testing. And this speed gap isn't just in theoretical bench test, it translates to real-world data upload and download speeds as... [Read More]
