Oh Brother: Apple Lost ANOTHER iPhone HD Prototype

Well guys, this is just ridiculous. Apple has lost a 2nd “iPhone HD” prototype. This time, it was found in Vietnam.

Apparently, the man that left with this device not only left with the iPhone, but with an iPad! Mabe a prototype iPad already!

This latest iPhone HD prototype is working (to some extent) and it looks a lot more finished up than the first iPhone prototype that was leaked just a few weeks ago.

Now, we have some more information on this strange new iPhone.

First of all, the screws on the bottom are gone. It looks a lot more polished and, well, “Applely”. A lot of people, including myself didn’t really like the screws and other weird things on the device, and it seems that Apple has fixed that.

It’s also running on some sort of diagnostic OS like other Apple prototypes do. This one is determining battery. This one is dubbed “Inferno”.

Front facing camera is still a go, as well as the bigger camera in the back of the device and the camera flash.

The device also shows “16GB” instead of the “XXGB” found on the previous device.

This also has an Apple branded chip. It may be either a new chip or a scaled down version of the A4.

Well, this may be what we see at WWDC in June! Stay tuned!

We Fixed The iPhoneSK Bug: For Real This Time

UPDATE 2: It’s Live! Go update right now and go get your plans and the app is chalk full of helpful information. :)

Once again, I’m very sorry for the inconvenience and the trouble, we won’t let this happen again.

UPDATE: I have just shipped over the 1.0.2 update that fixes all of the issues you have been experiencing. Optimo and BigBoss have received the updated application and it should be live soon. It can take a matter of minutes or a few hours, depending on how many apps other developers are releasing today.

Alright guys, here’s the 411 on what’s going on. Look, I did correct a bug in the 1.0.1 update that went live a few hours ago. It fixed an MD5 bug.

However, what’s the REAL bug? Nothing. There is no bug at all. The code is perfect. Turns out, the “crashing bug”, isn’t a bug at all. It’s a feature.

Turns out that the iPhoneSK app had our special anti-piracy code in it. You see, it’s now standard protocol here at LEI Mobile to include some sort of anti-piracy code into apps that we send to the App Store. However, since this project was very much kept secret, even internally here at LEI Mobile, the code was mistakenly placed in the app.

Not only that, to stick to our projected launch date, I jumped the gun and forgot to give the code a final look through before I hit that nice looking “build” button in XCode.

So, we are currently giving a 3X pass through to check for any other little things we may have either added or left out.

We will be submitting this final update for this “bug” later today. You should be able to get the update either later tonight or tomorrow morning for sure.

I apologize very sincerely and offer my sincerest apologies for the stupid little mistakes and events that lead to all of these headaches.

All I can say is that I am happy that I found the bug and that it’s being corrected now.

Thank You.

Clarification On Exclusive Deal, App Crashes, Etc.

UPDATE 2: I found the bug. We are hard at work for a fix. :) For more details on what exactly is going on, check out my press release:

We Fixed The iPhoneSK Bug: For Real This Time

UPDATE: I suspect this issue of the crashing app is on BigBoss’ end. It may be a permissions issue or something to that extent.

As I said, I’m in Chicago right now, and I’m trying all I can do from here.

Guys, we are not offering you a new cellular network. YOU are still gonna be on T-Mobile or whatever network you are on.

The service we are providing UNBLOCKS data service that was otherwise blocked by T-Mobile (sidekick plan) or AT&T (GoPhone plan) (for example).

However, I will be writing a tutorial soon on how to get basically free* phone service from T-Mobile and just having to pay us $98 a year (no, none of this is on contract, this is just over a 12 month period) instead of the $366+ you’d pay T-Mobile per year on the Sidekick plan.

iPhone 4G Parts Received!


Looks like the iPhone 4G is the real deal! SmartPhoneMedic has received the iPhone 4G LCD, digitizer, and metal middle plate assembly from one of their supplies. SmartPhoneMedic is a pretty well known repair company and has some very good connections to get these pieces early. We see a June/July iPhone refresh of the iPhone every year, so this is also a good indication that the iPhone 4G is being manufactured as we speak. More details will be available at the next WWDC event.

Apple Urges Users Not To Jailbreak In “Support” Section

Well guys, Apple has finally gone off the deep end. They have actually taken the time to write up an article on reasons on why not to jailbreak. The article was created on April 16th of this year. I stumbled on this article after getting a random tip on Twitter.

Well, Apple gives some very stupid reasons to not jailbreak. They state this in regards to jailbreaking:

Unauthorized modification of iPhone OS has been a major source of instability, disruption of services, and other issues

Apple Files For “iTunes LIVE” Trademark

Apparently, today, Apple has filed for the “iTunes LIVE” trademark. Now, there is no clear, official, reason, but I think it’s safe to speculate that Apple will bring live concerts and music events to customers, live, from iTunes.

I expect Apple to bring this to market in Q3 2010 during it’s September music keynote (along with iPad firmware 4.0).
