Via Twitter, @planetbeing recently announced that the sandox issues that were previously being faced have been resolved with the help of the developer of Cydia, Jay Freeman (@saurik). Read More
We have been waiting for Siri on our older iOS devices, right? Well, at last we have it (somewhat). Thanks to Grant Paul, who is known as @chpwn in the Jailbreak community. The Jailbreak tweak, known as Spire does not come without its disadvantages though, you still need an iPhone 4S to forward the data on too, so the 4S can provide an authenication key to communicate succesfully with Apple’s servers. This still leaves most iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad and iPod touch users wanting to port Siri on thier device out of the picture. Read More

We were all disappointed when Siri wouldn’t appear on our iPhone 4 and iPad, but now 2 young hackers, euwars and rudolf77 have managed to come up with a jail break for the iPod touch so it can run Apple’s new assistant.
As you may have guessed, Siri isn’t fully functional on the iPod touch as it has to be connected to the internet to get a response from Apple’s servers, and these servers aren’t allowing Siri on an iPod touch to access it. From what I have interpreted from this, there is going to be a future update that will allow the ability to get a response from Siri and have the compatibility to function on other iOS devices.

MuscleMerd has confirmed reports that stated that he had visited the Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, California, causing many to consider the possibility of Apple hiring yet another member of the unofficial iOS Jailbreaking Community.
Today, Comex’s JailbreakMe 3.0 which is still under development was leaked on the web. The tool can be used to instantly jailbreak iPad 2. Comex told the jailbreak community that the untethered jailbreak PDF files for the iPad 2 were stolen from his server using a dictionary attack. This is a difficult situation as Apple would have probably found out about the exploit being used by Comex, and would patch the exploit in the next release of iOS. On Twitter, Comex described the situation briefly. Read More

We are unsure what is “almost ready” but it appears that a jailbreak solution for the iPad 2 is ready to be released. Although the jailbreakers are an incredible and extremely talented group, it is taking them time to release a jailbreaking solution for the iPad 2. Read More
Redsn0w has been updated by the iPhone-Dev Team, and it now supports the latest beta version of iOS 5. The jailbreak is tethered and available only for Mac at the moment. As of now, the team can only offer a tethered version which means that you would have to connect your device to iTunes every time you restart. Read More
