iPod Touch 2G jailbroken with 3.1.2 firmware

Photo by ToniVC

Finally got around to installing the 3.1.2 firmware on my iPod.

  1. Get the 3.1.2 (or 3.0) firmware. 
  2. Grab PwnageTool from TPB (you'll need a Mac for this :) )

Everything else is downhill from there. Open up PwnageTool, pick your model, find your firmware and that's about it (unless you want to change boot logo, etc.)

Then restore your iPod with the new [custom] firmware with iTunes. In iTunes, go to your iPod on the left hand side, hold shift and press restore. Find your firmware and that's it.

 

iPhone OS 3.0 is out!

It's finally out! Apple will be releasing it free for iPhone 3G user but $10 for iPod Touch users :(
Anyway, here are some features I picked up from here and there:
+Peer to peer conectivity
+Prompts to buy more levels, etc.. in apps
+More than 1,000 new API's
+Apps access to hardware
+Maps embedable in apps
+Finally cut/copy/paste in apps!
+iPhone/iPod wide search
+Landscape keyboard
+Voice memos
and more....
 

Digg buttons

I added a Digg button module to the site, so incase you find something interesting you can Digg it! I'll also remove the Donate button from the site, makes me look desperate. I'll have to renew this domain or else it expires in 43 days.

I was sorta (meaning, not commited) to working on WorkSimple. Version 1.2.3 should be released soon, a minor release.
 

Yargh, me be loving me jailbroken iPod Touch! The Cydia store is pretty cool, it's going to be PayPal supported (or so I read) soon.

My Jailbroken iPod Touch 2G!

Sitting on the couch, I came across a Lifehacker article about the 2G being jailbroken. I almost shit my pants, I got up off the couch and did some serious Googling. An hour later, I had mine jailbroken too. Anyways, I'd like to share some links with you guys (who ever is reading this) for those who have a 2G and know nothing about jailbreaking their iPod.

Heres the tool that I used: QuickFreedom
Follow the onscreen instuctions (which are easy as hell) and you're good to go. It should take just under an hour. Where you create your custom firmware, you can choose your own boot image (I tried a custom one, but it wouldn't build the firmware).
Once that is finished, where do you go now? Update Installer and some of the repos.

What about installing 'cracked apps' (which in most cases is illegal) ? Check this link out: http://tinyurl.com/cdql9y
In a nutshell, you update your "MobileInstallation" file, download & install any app from the AppStore and install any app of your choice via iTunes (by supplying the .ipa)

Here are some pics of my homescreen and various other screens:

Server Stat

There's an app in the AppStore called Server Database. A pretty simple app, made to manager servers and such. Enter the name, address, function for the server and you're good to go. Well, I decided to make my own version of it using iWebKit. You can check it out here. Its pretty simple, it's read only for now. I'll wrap it up in a tarball and put it on the 'Free PHP Scripts' page.  Anyway, just though I'd share that.

iWebKit

While reading the Loving Tech, I discoverediWebKit. Whats iWebKit? Well, in a nutshell it gives you tools to create a bridge between a mobile website and a iPhone/iPod Touch App. What does this mean? You can make some beautiful websites, easily. For a demo click here. Anyway, I made my private messaging system (which I codenamed 'MailX') a nice little conversion using iWebKit. Check it out here. Its not completely finished, but it works! So grab your iPod or iPhone and check it out!

iPod Touch

Now, I can stream my entire music collection and listen to it on my iPod touch using Simplify. Run the server on your computer (Windows, OS X AND EVEN LINUX!) and connect to it with your iPod. The only thing you pay for is the app on your iPod, which is 3,99$ (CAD). I was trying to get TVersity working on my Dads computer so I could watch videos from his computer. Anyway, I'm installing Simplify Media server on this computer right now, I'll post back in a bit.
