The new iOS had amazed me all last week while I started testing it but this is yet another cherry on top today. As I took a picture that I launched from the lock screen and then used the volume up as shutter, I thought, couldn’t I use the volume up on my headset? So I plugged the headset in, propped up my iPhone, stepped back, and took a pic from the cords distance. This may not have too many uses but it is still pretty cool especially if somebody designed some sort of bluetooth shutter button. Give me your ideas in the comments!

Hey guys, now, as you know, iOS 5 has been around for a few days and I have been playing around with it since it came out on Monday. However, there was one thing that I could not do with my iPhone anymore, and that was sync photos correctly. It would sync about 100 out of the over 1,000 pictures I usually sync to my iPhone (and they wouldn’t be in the same album either) and it would give me a triangle in iTunes next to my iPhone.
Well, I figured out a way to fix the sync issues I was having. Turns out, as I believe is the case (not confirmed by Apple yet), but the photos database that iOS 2.0 -> 4.3.3 used is no longer compatible with iOS 5. So, I had to delete the database and allow iTunes 10.5 (beta) to create a new one, that was iOS 5 compatable.
All you have to do is go into Finder, click on “Pictures” and look for a file called “iPhoto Library”, then, right click (or put 2 fingers on the track pad) and click it, and choose “Show Package Contents”.
Now, look at the picture above for reference, and find a folder called “iPod Photo Cache” and delete it. Also, make sure to EMPTY YOUR TRASH!! If you don’t, then it won’t always work as Finder will sometimes still consider it as still being there.
Then, close iTunes and relaunch it.
Now, go to sync your photos onto your iOS 5 device, it should now work!
You should see it syncing your pictures! As for the triangle (forgot to do so in my screenshot that I took), after the sync is complete, click on it to get rid of it. If it disappears it means that everything is 100% synced up and ready to go!
There you go guys! Have fun!

[Update] Hey guys, if you want to ensure that your unlock stays forever (even if Apple makes your IMEI uneligable again, download SAM Prefs by going to Cydia and adding the source “http://repo.bingner.com”.
Then after you install (you must reboot) you have to go into the app (should be a SIM card) and tap “utilities” and then backup activation. Your NCK (unlock) will be sent to the cloud where it can be restored later.
Hey guys, well, as you may have heard, there are now new ways to unlock your iPhone! Now, this is a great service, why? You don’t need to care about baseband updates anymore!
Once you are unlocked via IMEI, then all you have to do is plug it into iTunes.
Today, I will be reviewing an unlocking service, unlock-network.com.
Unlock-Network.com is a very well organized company that was great to work with. They are also very reliable and were the only ones that I felt could handle my personal information.
Now, I’ve made a video showing you how the whole process happens:
So basically, this is how it all works. You go to Unlock-Network.com and you choose which device you want to unlock (in my case, it was the iPhone 3G [S]). Then, you just enter your IMEI (to find your IMEI, dial *#06# on your iPhone) and then choose which network the phone is locked to. (Everyone in the U.S. should click “AT&T/Cingular”.)
Then, you have the option to pay with either PayPal or Google Checkout. It will be $174.99 for an iPhone.
Now, it may look like a steep price at first, but keep in mind that if you live in the U.S. you would have to pay atleast $1,000 for a phone from another country. If you want to have a 32 GB model, then it goes up to $1,500, at least.
It’s a good deal that can potentially save you hundreds.
Now, the unlock is performed remotely, to finish the unlocking process, plug your iPhone into an internet-enabled computer and sync with iTunes.
It’s incredibly easy and I can confirm that this works 100%! It took a matter of hours for me to recieve my confirmation that it was unlocked.
They advertise a 24-48 hours delivery time. They will also give you your money back if the unlock doesn’t work for any reason.
This will work on all baseband versions (they even advise you to update to iOS 4.3.1/4.3.2 before unlocking) and it will work on any and all models of the iPhone 3G [S] and iPhone 4.
So there you go guys! Happy unlocking!
Thanks to Unlock-Network.com for the unlock!
Here’s an image gallery that shows you some highlights from the unlock process:

Now that UltraSn0w has been updated to support iOS 4.3.1 and the jailbreak is also untethered, you can now easily upgrade to the latest iOS and preserve your baseband so that you can unlock your iPhone 4. This tutorial will show you how to preserve your iPhone 4 baseband and unlock. This is assuming that you have modem firmware 01.59.00.
Sn0wBreeze is a windows version of PwnageTool that will create a custom firmware and preserve your baseband, You can easily use either of these tools but for this tutorial I will show you how to use TinyUmbrella to preserve your baseband and upgrade to iOS 4.3.1 and then run RedSn0w to jailbreak. This tutorial will work on both Mac and windows. Just be sure to download the correct programs.
1. Download the latest TinyUmbrella.
2. Start Tiny Umbrella with your iPhone 4 plugged in. Save your SHSH files for iOS 4.3.1. (You should be saving your SHSH files whenever a new firmware comes out!)
3. Click on Start TSS Server. If you get any errors, visit the TinyUmbrella FAQ page and fix the errors before continuing.
4. Launch iTunes and click on restore while holding down the shift key if you are on Windows or the option key if you are on a Mac.
5. Select the iPhone 4 iOS 4.3.1 firmware file. If you don’t have it you can download it here: iPhone 4 Firmware restore file for 4.3.1 (If it saves as a .zip file make sure to rename it to .ipsw).
6. The restore process should get a 1013 error. Click on OK and close out of iTunes. Your iPhone 4 will have a connect to iTunes logo displaying. If you get an error other than 1013, it means your baseband was updated. This is likely because you did not have the TSS server running or you are using a device other than an iPhone 4.
7. We need to get the iPhone 4 into DFU mode by holding the home and power button until the screen goes black. Then count to 2 and let go of the power button but keep holding down the home button. Your screen will turn black if you did it correctly. If not you will see an Apple logo and the screen will go back to the connect to iTunes logo. If you see this you need to start step 7 over.
9. Run Fix Recovery and it will get you to the iPhone activation screen.
10. You will now need to activate your iPhone 4. To activate it the correct way you will want to put whatever sim card the iPhone is locked to in and start iTunes. Most iPhone are locked to AT&T so put in any AT&T sim in to activate. It does not need to have service. If you do not have a sim to activate we will use RedSn0w to Hacktivate.
11. Start RedSn0w and jailbreak. RedSn0w will hacktivate if you did not activate officially in step 10:
redsn0w_0.9.6rc12: (current version as of writing this)
12. Once you are done following the RedSn0w instuctions you will have Cydia on your iPhone’s home screen. Launch Cydia, do all of the updates and then install the UltraSn0w package to unlock. You will also want to download our T-Mobile MMS fix if you are on T-Mobile.

Hey guys, I was fooling around with my iPad 2 and I found that you can change the aspect ratio when taking video! (not sure if this works on other iOS devices running iOS 4.3) But all you have to do is go to your iPad 2′s camera app, and double tap on the view finder. (I double tapped on the right side of the screen).
That’s it! Now you can record widescreen (16:9 ratio) 720p video instead of the regular “legacy” full screen (4:3 ratio) 720p video!
