Enable Push and Youtube on Hacktivated iPhones

IMPushPushWorks

Push Notifications was a major feature of the 3.0 Firmware. However Push was not working at all for those whose device was Hacktivated (unofficially activated through jailbreak). Along with Push, Youtube too was not working.

The Devteam has just launched a small fix for both of these problems. Note that this Fix is still in a premature level and hence not user friendly.

Follow these steps exactly to Enable Push Notifications and Youtube on your Hacktivated 2G/3G :

1. Download and Extract this Archive to a folder on your Desktop : PushFix.zip

2. Copy the following files via SSH to /private/var/Keychains and set permissions of inject and nimble to 755 (using WinSCP > Right Click on File > Properties).

youtube-cert.bin
youtube-key.bin
push-cert.bin
push-key.bin
inject

Well finally the wait is over and EA has just released its latest iteration of the NFS series – NFS Undercover for the iPhone !

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES? Get behind the wheel of the world’s #1 racing franchise to find out! Explode into a racing frenzy on your iPhone and iPod touch in this action packed adventure of hot pursuit and betrayal.

IGN.com’s Levi Buchchan says :

“Not only is the game extremely fast, especially when you tap the on-screen NOS button, but the graphics outstrip anything that your’ve seen on the iPhone thus far.”

Free App to Use iPhone as Modem

There’s have been quite a few ways to use your iPhone as a Modem. Earlier methods were cumbersome and too complex for normal users.

Then came an easier way, an app called NetShare was launched which made things very easy.

I had also posted a Tutorial to Use your iPhone as Modem via the NetShare Application.

But NetShare was not a free application. An alternative to NetShare has just been released and is now available via Cydia !

The Application is named simply as “iPhone Modem” and promises to tether your iPhone within just 10 seconds !

I haven’t personally tried it yet, but from what I heard it works just as advertised and easy to use !

Get it now from Cydia.

About those wondering what Cydia is, Cydia is a AppStore like Application. You need to JailBreak your iPhone.
