Handy for people jailbreaking with the Greenpois0n..These are the Apple links to iOS 4.2.1 for each specific device.

Wow, very cool.
Google is now in the navigation biz.
But only on Android phones, not on the iPhone.
the comments about a TechCrunch article that Google’s stuff needs an internet connection:
Not so fast. This has yet to work. My mobile (Android, iPhone) has a tough time keeping a connection when driving. All on-line navigation systems that I know have failed so far.Cool features but high risk of unhappy users due to mobile data availability and roaming issues.
Wow, that would be awesome if it is true. Personally, I am very happy that the TomTom car kit for the iPhone
Google said that when you plan your route, it precaches map data for that route to help alleviate this problem.
is available in Canada now.
I would hope that the enhanced GPS antenna would be of benefit to *any* GPS-using app and not just TomTom’s app.
I would expect it to get better over time though. Just a few more reasons to JailBreak. :-)
Installing OpenSSH Allows you to login to your iPhone on the command line.
You can do all sorts of things like
your iPhone as an internet router.
ssh is a bit geeky, so you can AppleShare instead.
Browsing your WiFi will show the iPhone as plain as day.
It’s the next best thing to the “disk mode” that old iPods have.
- video recording
Either live over the internet via Qik,
or locally using
or “VideoRecorder for iPhone”.
- playing old arcade games
There are now both an NES (non-super Nintendo) and Gameboy Advance emulators for the iPhone.
I wonder why
hasn’t been ported yet?
On Saturday I successfully shared my iPhone’s 3G internet connection with two laptops we brought with us to Thorold.It was a bit tricky, because the iPhone seemed to latch on to the WiFi connection provided by the peer-to-peer network created on the laptops.
The trick turned out to be running Safari on the iPhone, which would kick it into using the 3G network (since the peer-to-peer network had no route to the internet). Once the iPhone was on the 3G network, I ran NetShare.
Both laptops set the iPhone’s IP address as their SOCKS proxy, and we were off to the races (although Firefox was a bit stubborn about it – I had to use Safari to browse). So it’s good to know that should we ever need internet access in Thorold, we can use the iPhone.
We can probably also use it in Wasaga, but I suspect that we would only get EDGE networking there, which is 10x slower than 3G. I should note that even if you don’t have the NetShare iPhone app, you can achieve the same thing (on a jailbroken iPhone)
I also found another major reason to jailbreak your iPhone: running AppleShare.
My iPhone now shows up under AppleShare over the WiFi network, which allows me to transfer files back and forth with ease.
(Sorry Mike!) It’s pretty cool to bring up a network browser and see “Reid’s iPhone” in the list of available file servers. :-)
So they seem to have worked out the kinks with the beta Qik client for the iPhone.
Actually, the kinks were in their website’s handling of iPhone-originated video.
and see my short masterpieces.
Plus, if I happen to be recording at that moment, you can watch it live!
Ooooh, ahhh. I will embed the video I just took at work for your edification and amusement. :-)
This is just a note about living with a jailbroken iPhone. I think I’ll update it over time.Current jailbreak tool is PwnageTool_2.0.2.tbz,
which works with the first iPhone 2.0 update, 2.0.1. If you find you can’t use WiFi after jailbreaking, try:
- removing your WiFi network and adding it back again
- use BossPrefs to “repair user dir permissions”
- manually installed; it was pulled from the App store
- NES emulator
- play tons of old games!
- Quake 1
- Lets you tweak lots of stuff, including jailbreak-specific things like “SSH Server” on/off
cribbed from MacRumors forums.
My Installed Apps Here are links to my 9 app screens:
Using an SFTP application (I use Cyberduck), drag the
NetShare.appfolder from the desktop into the iPhone’s
Open a terminal window, and open an SSH session with the iPhone:
$ ssh email@example.com
(replace the IP address above with your iPhone’s IP Wi-Fi address.) The default root login password is “alpine”.
Next, go to the NetShare.app folder:
# cd /Applications/NetShare.app
and change the access file mask of the main application file:
# chmod 755 NetShare
Reboot (or re-spring if you know how) your iPhone.
 Fun, eh?
