[How to] Setup and Use iMessage for iPhone

iMessage was introduced along with iOS5. In my opinion it is one of the top 2 features of iOS5 (the other being improved notification system). It’s Apple’s answer to BBM service.

Follow the tutorial below to setup and use iMessage for your iPhone.

• First thing ensure that the iOS 5 is running successfully.

• Go to ‘Settings’ & select ‘Messages’ then turn the toggle switch for iMessage to on.

[How to] Install Siri on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPad 2

One of the most touted features of iPhone 4S is the amazing new AI based ‘Siri’. Siri is a iPhone 4S-only feature.

Although I personally feel this was just a marketing technique by Apple to get the current owners to buy the iPhone 4S since the iPhone 4 is pretty powerful enough to handle Siri and anyways all the Siri voice processing is done server side.

Just a day after its launch, Siri has already been hacked into the iPhone 4.

A famous hacker by the name, Steve Troughton has ported over Siri from iPhone 4S to iPhone 4.

This hack is currently unavailable but will be launched soon. Bookmark this page and check back later for Instructions on getting this on your iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS or iPad 2.

Note that you will need your device to be Jailbroken.

 

=========================================================
Update:
=========================================================

There’s been an update to getting Siri on your iPhone and we’re now getting closer to actually getting it to work.

This method will only allow you to get the feel of Siri on your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS. This will still not work since Apple servers only accept requests for Siri commands from an iPhone 4S. All requests from iPhone 4 or 3GS are simply ignored.

But that too is a matter of time until the hackers figure out a way to make it work.

Check out the Video Tutorial below to Install Siri on your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS right now!

=========================================================
Update 2:
=========================================================

Steve Troughton, the original hacker who was working on porting Siri to iPhone 4/iPod Touch has finally managed to find a way to fool Apple Servers into thinking that the requests are being sent from an iPhone 4S.

He has posted a video showing the hack and Siri working successfully on the iPhone 4. He says the hack will require files from the iPhone 4S and these files are not authorized by Apple to publicly distribute.

Nonetheless, the hack is successful now and its only a matter of days before we get the final instructions on getting this to work.

Check out the Video showing the hack running successfully:

Here’s the latest progress showing Siri running successfully on the iPhone 3GS :

[How to] Jailbreak iOS 5 – iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch

iOS 5 brings in a ton of new features for which everyone is very eager to update and get a feel of the new OS. iOS 5 BETA was launched for Developers in order for them to create and test their existing apps. But a lot of consumers who were eager to use iOS 5 too have gone ahead and installed it on their iDevices with the help of their Developer friends.

Just today a Jailbreak was released for iOS5. This is a tethered jailbreak which means everytime you restart you device and want to use the jailbroken apps you will need to run Redsn0w again.

This jailbreak works on the following devices:

  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad 1
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

The following applications provided by  Jailbreaking  are currently absent :

  • MobileSubstrate
  • Springtomize
  • PhotoMail
  • ActionMenu
  • Celeste
  • BiteSMS
  • WinterBoard

 

Things you’ll require:

Follow the screenshots below to Jailbreak your iDevice :

Jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad 4.3.1 using Redsnow – Untethered [Guide]

The iPhone Dev Team has just released the tools to a Untethered Jailbreak for the latest iOS v4.3.1.

The device support list is as follows:

  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1
  • AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)

The iPad 2 is not supported cause it uses a newer bootrom version that still needs to be patched.

Both pwnagetool and redsnow can be used to perform this jailbreak. I’d suggest you go with Redsnow as its more easier to use and simpler.

Download RedSn0w 0.9.6rc9 :

Redsnow for Windows : Click Here

Redsnow for Mac : Click Here

PwnageTool_4.3.dmg : PwnageTool_4.3.dmg.6293151.TPB.torrent

 

The reason I highly recommend Redsnow is cause you don’t need to wipe any data i.e. you can simply click the Update button to get to 4.3.1 and retain all your Songs, Music, Apps and everything without the need for a complete re-sync as in PwnageTool.

Update to 4.3.1 using the Update button via iTunes. (iPhone 4 AtnT Locked users should NOT try this. Read the note at the end of the page for more info.)

Follow these Steps to Jailbreak your iDevice running 4.3.1 using RedSnow:

1.Open Redsnow

2. Click on Browse and select the IPSW firmware file for 4.3.1.

For Mac the Location is : Your Name > Library > iTunes > iPad Software Updates

For Windows the location is : C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

3. Once the IPSW is successfully identified, click on Next. Now you will get the following screen to prepare you to boot into DFU Mode inorder to load the exploit.

4. Click Next and you will get the steps to enter DFU Mode. If you’re still finding it difficult to enter DFU mode, follow this nice video tutorial which explains the procedure nicely.

5. Once you correctly enter DFU, you will see the following screen :

6. Your device will go start the Jailbreak Process. Wait for it to be finished and you will have an Untethered Device with 4.3.1.

 

Note for Factory Locked iPhone 4 Users:

For those using an iPhone unlocked with ultrasn0w do not update to 4.3.1 using the official method. If you already have, then tough luck. The iPhone 4 baseband is very difficult to hack and would take a while to get patched.

For others with iPhone 4 on older firmware and unlocked with ultrasn0w, please stay where you are until ultrasn0w is updated for 4.3.1. Once ultrasn0w is updated to support 4.3.1 you will have to use pwnagetool to create a custom IPSW and then update. Updated ultrasnow is said to be released today on Cydia.
Another sureshot way to make sure your carrier locked devices stay unlocked even after an upgrade of iOS versions you can purchase SIM Unlock tools. Some of these tools even provide iPhone 5 SIM unlocking!

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
nimble
