Is this the latest upcoming iPhone5? No! This is a headset receiver that one of my colleagues received from a vendor. Isn’t it cool? I liked it. Imagine you are traveling in Bart with iPhone in the pocket and the receiver in the hand next to your ears. I can imagine that and keep laughing all the way round.

The fall of Google Nexus One

No more Nexus one online, it is officially offline! Today Google announced a huge change to their dream model of selling NexusOne on through their own website. Google at it’s official blog that the site that they have created will be no more available and the phone will be sold through the conventional channels. Meantime Sprint has also announced that they are no more interested in offering NexusOne to their customers.

All these announcements are coming after a poor sales of the phone. I was always interested in finding out the outcome of this sales model since the day of its inception. I never prayed or thought of a failure of this model but was interested in the studying the impact of the success or failure of this model. The recent announcement has very well portrayed that the customers want to have a touch and feel of things before they would buy it online.

iPhone4: more revelations, more pictures and video

iPhone 4 is what I am waiting for almost since last year. I am really sold to apple stuff even if everything is priced ridiculously. But ever since the Gizmodo iPhone4 revelations I am more excited to grab one as soon as it hits the market in next 2 months (speculations are that it will released sometime in July). I was very excited today to get more details about the new upcoming phone by a Vietnamese website.

The Vietnamese website TAOVIET has published a series of photograph and a video with all the new details. They have even teardown the hardware and shown everything inside out. The best revelation of all is that this phone uses the same processor APL0398 being used by the iPad, so you can imagine the performance of this machine. The other interesting feature is that the new design is screw less.

My iPhone was a locked one with 3.1.3 upgrade. I jailbroke it using redsn0w-0.9.4(windows). There is a trick at this step while start cracking firmware 3.1.3, you need to point 3.1.2(iPhone1,2_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw) firmware path to break 3.1.3(iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw) while selecting firmware on first screen of redsn0w. This works just perfectly.

My iPhone was a locked one with 3.1.3 upgrade. I jailbroke it using redsn0w-0.9.4(windows). There is a trick at this step while start cracking firmware 3.1.3, you need to point 3.1.2(iPhone1,2_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw) firmware path to break 3.1.3(iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw) while selecting firmware on first screen of redsn0w. This works just perfectly.
STEP 1: Jailbreak your iPhone 3.1.3 using redsn0w, and make sure you select ‘Cydia‘ it needs to be therein for installing some utilities to determine, upgrade/downgrade and unlock purposes later.
STEP 2: Install Cydia/Terminal in your iPhone and check version of your baseband firmware, you need to use BBUpdateExtreme for this. It is a bit techie but prefect utility for checking baseband version, it showed different but correct info to me than other options I tried. It involves quite a long procedure so please refer to iPhoneHeat for this. You are lucky if it shows ICE2_BOOT_05.08_G2M3B2 to you, as it’ll increase your chances for unlocking your iPhone 3G to almost sure.
STEP 3: Now go to Cydia on your iPhone and Search for Fuzzyband and then install this application. Start fuzzyband and hit downgrade button to make your bootloader compatible for unlock/ultrasn0w. You are lucky if you see successfully downgraded message.
STEP 4: Almost done, now quickly install ultrasn0w and run it……………………DONE!Get to know the crack as soon as my friend posts it!
