iOS 5.1.1 Jailbreak Absinthe 2.0 for iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPad 1/2/3 and iPod touch 3G/4G

Hello there !
I am sure everyone was waiting for this jailbreak, which was released long time ago (almost two months). However, I have tried this Jailbreak today on my friend's iPhone and its working perfectly. All you need to do before you start is to take a backup via iTunes or iCloud for your contacts, photos, calendar and all necessary data.

Absinthe 2.0 Jailbreak is available for the below devices:
  • iPhone 3GS, 4 & 4S
  • iPad 1, 2 & 3
  • iPod Touch 3G & 4G
Necessary steps before going further:
  • You must take a backup of your data
  • Your iOS should be 5.1.1 (if earlier version, you must upgrade the same before jailbreaking your device)
  • This jailbreak is untethered
  • It will be on your own responsibility
 Step No. 1:
  • Download Jailbreak for Windows here
  • Download Jailbreak for Mac here
  • Download Jailbreak for Linux here

Step No 2:

After your download is done, run the software by clicking twice on the icon (for windows users, you need to run this software as an administrator)

Step No. 3:
After you run the software, you need to connect your device to your PC through the USB cable.

PS: Before going further, you need to deactivate your device Passcode by going to Settings > General > Passcode Lock > Off

Step No. 4:
The software will search for your device and locate it, as well as the iOS version. After that, all you need to do is to press on "Jailbreak". After that the software will proceed by itself, and it will take between 5 to 10 minutes.

Step No. 5:
After the data is sent and your device is ready, the software will give you a messages which says "Done Enjoy". And you can now close the software.

Step No. 6:
Your device will restart and activate Jailbreak. Once its ready for use, you can see Cydia icon on your device. And feel free to download all the sources you need and wish to have.

  • If you faced any problems or delay, you may restore the original iOS data from iTunes.
  • After your jailbreak is done, you can take back your backup data from iTunes.
All what is left to say is Good Luck & Enjoy :)

Story behind Apple Logo being Up Side Down !

I was always wondering what is the story behind Apple's logo being up side down in so many movies ! Until I have decided to investigate and figure this thing out. I am sure many of you is also wondering about the same, specially in movies, why would Apple Inc. leave their logo to appear up side down, I mean it will affect their image right !

Well, no need to wonder any more because I have the story in my hands and I am going to share it with you guys :D

There was a time when Apple logos were upside down on the lid of Apple notebooks, until Late Steve Jobs realized this mistake. Joe Moreno, a former Apple employee, has taken to his blog to explain the story behind that upside down Apple logo on previous and/or old Apple notebooks.

Apple Inc. has an internal system called  Can We Talk? It allows all their employees to raise any question about anything and everything. So this issue was brought up to them asking for an explanation why is the Apple logo is upside down on laptops when the lid is open? Steve Jobs was confused with two categories whether to please the customers or the branding category, Why? Because Steve Jobs was always focusing on providing the best possible user experience and believed that it was more important to satisfy the customer than the people who are looking, and that's how the design of Apple logo became upside down. However, few years later Steve Jobs realized that opening the lid from the wrong end is a few seconds mistake, while having the logo upside down for others to see is a long term mistake with so many consequences. And that's why the decision was made and the logo was revised to appear upright to the people in front, but upside down to the user !

Taking this decision was a major step for Apple Inc., it's right that the design today is so much more than visual design as it stands for several kinds of design at once, such as:
  • Visual Communication.
  • Branding.
  • Usability.
  • Transparency.
But at the end, Steve Jobs as usual did the right thing by taking this very successful decision.
Hope you enjoyed reading this article !

The new Gmail iPhone application

July 31, 2012 Google Inc. released the modified version of Gmail app for iOS devices on their facebook page. Honestly, I didn't explore it yet but it looks nice and neat, and pretty much faster then any other mail application. They have made several changes to improve the experience of sending and receiving emails, for example, you may send your handwriting as an attachment to the email as well as other attachments off course. The use of this application specially when your attaching something is way much better than the normal email application on iPhone.

The main features of this app are as below:
  • Get alerted to new messages with push notifications and sounds.
  • Find and email in seconds with search across your entire inbox (unlike the normal email app)
  • auto-complete email addresses from your Gmail contacts or select from your device's address book.
  • Upload photos with a click using the new attachment button in compose view (instead of coping and dropping the photos in your email).
  • On iPad, navigate your inbox and read your mail simultaneously with split view.
  • When you viewing a picture attachment, you can use a long press (touch and hold) to save it to your photo library.
  • Pull down your inbox to refresh (just like twitter).
  • Swipe right to view labels without leaving your inbox (similar to facebook app).

This application is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch through this link.
