You’d think that Steve Jobs would be running the latest unreleased version of iPhone OS on his iPhone but according to an email received by a 9to5Mac user from Steve Jobs, he seems to be running iPhone OS 3.1.2. His iPhone is listed as iPhone Mail 7D11 in the email header which means that he is running iPhone 3.1.2 instead of iPhone 3.1.3, let alone running the latest unreleased firmware.
The infamous iPhone DevTeam is now back with a newer version of redsn0w which brings support for IPCC tethering hack for iPhone 3G and 3GS only. This IPCC tethering hack enables you to install carrier bundles that aren't officially signed by Apple on the latest iPhone 3.1.2 firmware. With this, you can connect your iPhone (3G and 3GS only) with your PC or a Mac in a way which enables your PC/Mac to connect to Internet via 3G network on your iPhone.
Redsn0w is an alternative jailbreaking and unlocking tool to blackra1n for both Windows and Mac. It also enables users to personalize iPhone firmware’s with customized boot and recovery logos without having to use iTunes as there are no custom IPSW files involved. If other jailbreaking tools such as blackra1n, PwnageTool and sn0wbreeze didn't work for you, you can always give redsn0w a try to see if it solves all your problems.
The developer of sn0wbreeze has released final teaser video of sn0wbreeze which shows off a new feature which will be included when the final version is released this Thursday. This feature enables jailbroken iPhone and iPod touch users to change their boot logos without having to wipe-out anything. This method is referred to as NOR-only IPSW flashing. Video after the jump.
Sn0wbreeze like blackra1n, redsn0w and PwnageTool is yet another jailbreaking tool for iPhone and iPod touch which can be used to create custom .ipsw files. But unlike the PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze is fully compatible to work with Windows 7/Vista and XP machines. If for some reason the earlier mentioned tools didn't work for you, you can give Sn0wbreeze a try and see if it helps in jailbreaking your iPhone with a custom .ipsw file.
Redsn0w is an alternative jailbreaking and unlocking tool to blackra1n for both Windows and Mac.

It was only yesterday when we reported the long awaited update to install0us (version 2.5) and now it seems like the developer of the app has already pushed a new update, version 2.5.1 via Cydia. The only thing new in this update is that it removes the expiry date that the developer forgot to remove from version 2.5. Version 2.5 of the app will be expired in 4 days from now. You must upgrade to version 2.5.1 in order to continue using this app. Here are the official words from the developer himself.
The iPhone Dev-Team has finally released a proper working patch which fixes carrier name or logo on unlocked iPhone 3.1.2 firmware. If you jailbreaked your iPhone with PwnageTool 3.1.4 and then later unlocked it with ultrasn0w, then you must have noticed that the carrier name or logo on the top left side of the status bar was missing. This was caused due to a known bug in ultrasn0w and was purely cosmetic, which means that your phone continued to work even without the carrier logo in place. We earlier wrote about a fix for this bug but it was more of a workaround than a proper fix. But today, Dev-Team has released ultrasn0w 0.92 which fixes this issue. Follow the steps below to upgrade your phone to the latest version of ultrasn0w.
