New AppleTV has been Jailbroken! [Video]

Just hours after Apple TV shipped out of Apple’s Warehouse, it has been jailbroken yet again by iPhone Dev Team! In fact, it only took them 5 hours to successfully jailbreak and shoot the below video.

We all know that new Apple TV do not have any storage and only supports streaming rental from Apple. But what we also know is that Apple TV is running on iOS 4.1. It has 8GB of internal Storages, with 256mb of ram and runs on Apple’s A4 Processor, to be honest, the specifications looks like a 8GB iPhone 3GS with a new A4 Processor. We have seen in the previous Apple TV Review and saw that Apple TV play 720p very smoothly.  Quite impress with Apple’s Streaming Service as they are quite new in this field.

Nevertheless, a jailbroken Apple TV means there will be countless of hacks, Custom Codec to play all formats of video? 1080p output? iOS App supports? Emulators? External Hard Disk Support? Who knows what will be coming, but we are very excited!


iPhone Dev Team Demo SHAtter for iOS 4.1 Jailbreak on iPod Touch 4G [Video]

Apple have released iOS 4.1 for quite sometime, but we haven’t seen any jailbreak tools out there for iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G for iOS 4.1. Are we having problem with jailbreaking them now?

No, iPhone Dev Team just demo to us, SHAtter on iOS 4.1 jailbroken on a new iPod Touch 4G.

Many iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users have been complaining that their iPhone gotten sluggish and slow after updating to iOS 4 and above. There are many “un-proven” methods out there to improve the performance like hard-reset and restoring. But the only real way to solve this issue is to restore back to iOS 3.1.3 from iOS 4.

We all know that restoring previous version is a troublesome way, but it will be bringing back your old fast iPhone. So follow the guide below to restore your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS from iOS 4 to iOS 3.1.3

Step 1: Download iOS 3.1.3 and RecBoot

You will need the old iOS 3.1.3 Firmware file to do a restore, you can download iOS 3.1.3 here:

  4. Once it’s powered down, press and hold both the sleep/lock button and the home button for ten seconds.
  5. After ten seconds, release the power button but continue holding down the home button.
  6. If you did it right, iTunes will pop up a window (like the one below) telling you that it’s detected an iPhone in recovery mode and your iPhone’s screen will be black. If it didn’t work, start from the beginning and try again.

Step 3 Actual Restoring Process

Once your got into DFU Mode, your iTunes should prompt your with such a message.

  1. Dismiss the alert prompt by clicking OK, then go to your iPhone under Device sidebar in iTunes.
  2. If you are on Windows, Hold on Shift key and click on restore, if you are on Mac, hold on to Option and click on Restore
