Hey guys. Well, yesterday, I discovered that I could enable multitasking on the iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G fairly easily (Once I had some decrypted iPhone 3G S firmware). At first sight, when Steve was demoing it, I said, “It’s built into SpringBoard”. My suspicions were true.
Well, yesterday, at about noon, I put those feelings to the test, and achieved multitasking on an iPhone 3G.
It’s fairly simple to do. All you have to do is add
to the N82AP.plist. On the iPod touch 2G, you would add that to the N72AP.plist.
Well, I was going to wait until 4.0 GM release, but it seems that I wasn’t the only one to figure this out and that some website (who will not be named) posted a tutorial on how to do this already, and they jumped the gun.
I posted that I had achieved this yesterday on my Twitter account if you guys follow me.
Well, there it is. I hope Apple doesn’t patch this, because that would really suck.

Well, during the entire keynote, I was excited. Great feature, after feature, after feature. I loved most of the keynote.
All of the revolutionary new features: Multi-Tasking, folders, improved Mail, iBooks, enterprise stuff, preview of Game Center and iAd.
Well, its all fine an dandy… if you have an iPhone 3G S or iPod touch G3. I am furious right now. I have an iPhone 3G. Now, we will get everything, except the most important feature. Multi-tasking.
Now… I love the rest of the features, but I am considering not even attempting to update to 4.0 becauae without multi-tasking, its not worth my time. My feelings may change, but for the immediate future, nope.
Oh, and if you got an iPad, good luck with not multitasking or 4.0. You have to wait until September or October. Apple said “Fall” but come on, we all know when that is. iPhone OS 4.X for iPad will not be in the Summer, but in the Fall.
So here I am. Screwed. Whether I get an iPad (which I am pretty soon) or if I keep my 3G (and the iPhone 2G that I sold because I knew Apple would kill support for older models in 4.0). No multi-tasking for me. (Well, on the iPad, but guess who has to wait until September for that?! This guy.)
So overall, iPhone OS 4.0 is an amazing software release… if you have enough cash to have the latest and greatest iPhone or iPod touch. If not, you still get iBooks, new Springboard, folders, mail, iAds, and game center as well as the other (almost 100) features.
Come on Apple. Where’s the love? You just screwed all of us who bought your products before they went mainstream. Some say it’s because of the slower processor, but that’s not true. Apple wanta you to update to the latest and greatest.
If it were a processor issue, then 4.0 would be available for the iPhone 2G and iPod touch 1G. The iPhone 3G has the same components. Also, the iPod touch 2G is very fast as well.
So overall, the OS is near perfect. The thing is, I got a very bad after taste from this event being an iPhone 3G and future iPad owner. This decision will come back and bite them on the ass when more people hear of 4.0′s lack of support.
That’s all I have to say. If you are paid developers like us, go to developer.apple.com and get 4.0 beta 1 now. If Apple provided an “unlock” or if the Pwnage Tool is updated, then I may try 4.0 betas, but I really am angry right now.read more
Well it’s official! The iPhone OS 4.0 keynote will be on April 8th!
Now, this is going to be a massive event and we will be bringing coverage and all of the announcements as it happens.
Now, this is in 3 days. On Thursday at 10am Pacific (12pm Central)
Now, I expect there to be support for changing your homescreen’s backround, multi-tasking, possibly a landscape homescreen, and an “iAd” support.
iAd is a rumored new thing that Apple is rumored to be revealing on April 8th, its a brand new platform for advertising in the mobile space.
So all we can do now is wait for Thursdah for the keynote. I’ll see you there!

Well what do ya know? Apple is super busy today (and apparently, they are actually doing some work, rather than having their goons kick press out of the malls) anyways, BGR reports that iPhone/iPad OS 3.2 has references to an “iPhone3,1″, “iPhone3,2″, “iPhone3,3″, and an “iPod4,1″ and even an “iPr0d2,1″. I can confirm this.
Now, why 3 new iPhones? Because I have been right for an entire year now. There will be a GSM only iPhone (iPhone3,1), CDMA/LTE (mabe LTE) only iPhone (iPhone3,2), and a GSM + CDMA iPhone (iPhone3,3). Now, what I was wrong on was the iPhone OS 4.0 keynote. In July of 2009, i predicted that we would see a keynote in late March, but that has not materialized. I expect the keynote to be this month.
So a new iPod touch, that’s normal, but a 2nd gen iPad?! really? Yep. Apple is already working on the 2nd gen device. What type of product launch pattern they will take with the iPad isn’t clear, but I expect them to follow the 1 new iPad a year routine that they’ve taken with the iPhone and iPod touch, and well, all of their products.
So there you go everyone! This basically confirms what I have been saying about AT&T’s exclusivity. It’s dead, and it’s not coming back! A great day nonetheless.
I’ll be making a video piecing together various pictures and clips that we get throughout iPad launch day 2010!read more
Hey guys, the iPhone 4 rumors and leaks have run rampant in the last 24 hours!
Well, today we have a leak on iPhone OS 4.0 and the next iPhone! It seems as though multi-tasking will finally be in iPhone OS 4.0! I am expecting this to be announced in the next 2 weeks!
Now, as for the next iPhone, all we know is that it will be both in a CDMA and a GSM version, runs iPhone OS 4.0, thinner, faster, 2X resolution screen as any current iPhone, and it’s got a better camera, and a front facing camera! I also expect an RFID chip in it for iPhone to iPhone communication.
Well, that’s all for now! I’ll be updating you all on the news as we get it!
Stay tuned…read more
