Last year we told you about a service from ChevronWP7 Labs that enabled you to unlock your Windows Phone. This service is currently no longer available.

Chevron_thumb1

According to various sources, ChevronWP7 Labs did a deal with Microsoft for an initial 10,000 unlock tokens, which have now all been used.

As yet ChevronWP7 haven’t said if they will ask Microsoft for more, but I guess given that all 10,000 have been sold in just two months the service was very popular.

Did you use it?

Firecore have just updated its Seas0nPass jailbreak tools package for AppleTV to version 0.7.7. This update brings support for Lion and a number of bugfixes.

Seas0nPass was created exclusively for the AppleTV user, as previously no AppleTV specific jailbreak tools were available. Seas0nPass allows you to easily create custom AppleTV IPSW files and restore them in iTunes (similar to the existing Pwnage Tool app). Also included is a simple ‘tethered boot’ option which aids in using newer AppleTV firmwares when an ‘un-tethered’ jailbreak is not yet available.

Here is the information on Seas0nPass:

What can I do with Seas0nPass?

  • Jailbreak the AppleTV with the latest 4.2.2 (iOS 4.3) software.
  • Easily perform a ‘tethered boot’ (when necessary).

What is the difference between a ‘tethered’ and ‘un-tethered’ jailbreak?

A tethered jailbreak requires the AppleTV to be connected to a computer for a brief moment during startup. An un-tethered jailbreak removes this restriction. Un-tethered jailbreaks are are a bit more complex and take more time to complete.

How much does Seas0nPass cost?

Seas0nPass is available as a free download – no strings attached.

What are the minimum requirements?

Mac: OSX 10.6 or later

Windows: XP or later

Can I use this on my iPhone, iPad, or other iOS device?

Nope. Seas0nPass is designed exclusively for the 2nd gen AppleTV.

Sounds great! Where can I download it?

The Seas0nPass app, and user guides can be found at Seas0nPass.com

Firecore provide a really useful guide on their website. Have you tried Sea0nPass yet?

This week saw the release of the jailbreak for iPad 2’s. Even on the first day of release of the iPad 2 people wanted to jailbreak it! Now you can and it’s as easy as visiting a website.

IMG_0091

This new jailbreak was released on Wednesday and within 24 hours over 1 million devices had been jailbroken.

If you are not sure what a jailbreak is then you should probably not try this. What it does is enable you to install apps that have not been approved by Apple.

We do not condone the use of illegal software when jail breaking your device!

So what do you do to jailbreak your iPad 2? Unlike some previous jailbreak solutions, this one is very simple and anyone can do it.

Make sure you are running iOS 4.3.3 – other versions will be supported soon.

Then make sure you have a backup of your iPad 2.

On your iPad 2, open Safari and visit http://www.jailbreakme.com

Tap the FREE button, then tap the INSTALL button.

The whole process should only take a minute.

On your Home screen you will now see a new app called Cydia – tap it.

IMG_0001

You then need to tap on User, Hacker or Developer – for most people User is fine. Then tap Done.

IMG_0002

All the packages and updates will then be downloaded to your iPad 2.

That’s it – you are jailbroken!

IMG_0003

If you want to do know more about Cydia and what you can install and run on your jailbroken iPad 2, just do a search on Google.

It can also jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G.

WARNING: This should only be attempted if you are sure you want to jailbreak your device and you are happy that it could invalidate your warranty. You can restore your device to its previous state at any time though.

Yesterday we announced the release of XBMC for the Apple iPhone 4, iPad and AppleTV 2. Today we show you how to install XMBC to your Apple iPhone 4 or iPad.

Back in December we published our hands-on review of XBMC 10.0, and we loved it.

And now for those of us that have Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad or the new AppleTV, we can get XBMC as well.

One thing you need to remember is that XBMC is NOT available it the App Store which means the only way to install it only your Apple devices is to jailbreak the required device.

This process isn’t for the fainthearted, and can jeopardise your warranty, so please only do this if you are sure. UWHS cannot take responsibility if you try XBMC and you brick your device!

There are a number of different ways to jailbreak your device, we are not going to cover them here in this article – just do a search on Google!

The following screenshots were taken on an iPhone 4, this is the same process if you want to install XBMC to your Apple iPad.

When you jailbreak your device, you get a new application called Cydia. This is where we must add the source in order to download the app to the device.

IMG_0744

Click on Manage, then click on Sources.

IMG_0745

Click on Edit, then Click on Add.

IMG_0746

Type in mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/ios and click Add Source

IMG_0747IMG_0748

Cydia will attempt to verify the URL you have entered

IMG_0749

It if it successful it will update your sources list.
