Let’s crack Iphone 2.0

image

Iphone Pawnage tool was released last week. However, it’s just Mac only. Today, Winpwn is released for those Windows users in the dark. My iphone is using pre-pwned firmware, so I’ve no idea how Winpwn performs nor can I give support for this. Some users reported that they were getting error launching Itunes in the process. So do it with your own discretion:

Here are the steps followed by download link:

2.0 How to:
  1. First create a custom IPSW using the IPSW Builder.
  2. Click “Ipwner” and browse for the custom IPSW that you just created. This will pwn itunes and allow you to flash custom IPSW files via DFU mode
  3. Once you have pwned Itunes, put your phone into DFU mode. If you don’t know how to do this click here.
  4. Once you are in DFU mode Itunes will pop up and then you can hold shift and click restore and browse to your custom IPSW file.
  5. Done!

Iphone 3G in Malaysia: Updated

Iphone 3G Black and White

Iphone 3G Black and White

Since AT&T in the US still doesn’t have certain date for contract-free Iphone, I’ve been trying to locate the best place to get Iphone 3G around the world.  One of the best place to get Iphone 3G now is New Zealand as all Iphone from there are already unlocked and confirmed can be used with Celcom, Digi and Maxis.

However, the price is still not buyer-friendly. It’s retailed at RM2800 for 16gb and RM2450 for 8GB. This is cost price and does not include handling and shipping which might reach beyond RM3k after all cost. At the time being, I won’t bring in the Iphone unless the demand is high enough to justify the risk. Otherwise, I might take some units if someone is really interested to get the Iphone and willing to deposit some amount first.

This is all that I got right now. Don’t forget to reply of what you think about the above price.

More detail on Iphone 2

img19

The rumors about second gen Iphone are getting more authoritative each day. Here’s what Engadget managed to uncover:

  • The first thing people will notice: the 2nd gen iPhone will be about the same size and shape as the first gen.
  • It will, of course, have 3G. And proper GPS!
  • The most noticeable physical difference is back of the phone is no longer metal — the whole thing is glossy black, from top to bottom. The volume buttons are now chrome.
  • Because it’s got a little less metal to deal with, it doesn’t have quite as many angular edges. The battery is (still) not removable.
  • The phone itself will be slightly thicker than the first gen device.
  • The headphone jack will no longer be recessed, and will finally be flush with the body.
  • The device itself uses roughly the same size and resolution screen as the first generation product.
  • No solid word on battery life or storage capacity.

Estimated ship date is July.

Are you waiting for 3G iphone?

I am! and I’m really excited that I readily would sell my current 8gb Iphone once 3G model is out. Rumors are getting hot about June released date for Iphone 3G.

First, many EU providers either already cut Iphone price or in talks to cut Iphone price.The move is to clear out abundant unsold stock due to their overestimated sale figures. Here’s another story that’s just in.

Clearing Inventory for ’radically different’ 3G iPhone?

Second, Apple store used to ship Iphone in 1-3 business days, now it’s changed to 5-7 days. This just-in-time production strategy is believed to reduce overall inventory to minimize unsold older units later.

Third, many sources including AT&T CEO implied indirectly that Iphone is coming sooner. Nobody knows when is sooner but WWDC which is in June, is a good guess.

June is always a good month to release hot item. It reduces the risk of out-of-stock scenario as the demand is moderately strong, not as strong as end of year holiday season, but still adequate to gather needed media attention.

There’s lot more rumors but I guess all the reading will point to one conclusion; 3G Iphone is imminent and we all shall wait for it.
