New iPod Touch third generation coming?


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Sunday, August 30, 2009

Yes, the Apple Store is down right now. While I'd like to be optimistic and think that they're adding the new iPod Touch third generation or the rumored Apple Tablet, the truth is that they are not. I'm sure they will announce this on the September 8 or September 9 event. If there is anything new like iTunes 9.0 or anything, I'll keep you all posted!

iPhone 3.0.1


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Friday, July 31, 2009

iPhone 3.0.1 update
Today Apple released iPhone 3.0.1 firmware update to iPhone users. This iPhone 3.0.1 update patches a critical iPhone SMS flaw that could do some serious damage to iPhone users. If you are an iPhone user or you know anyone who has an iPhone, don't forget to update! This is a very important update. An iPod Touch 3.0.1 update is not out because iPod Touch's were not vulnerable to the SMS exploit.

iPhone SMS virus Patch (sort of)!


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Thursday, July 30, 2009

Earlier today I made a post about the iPhone SMS virus. Now QuickPWN has posted a guide on how to disable the SMS app and prevent this virus. This is not an iPhone virus SMS patch, but it is a good way to keep yourself safe until Apple releases an update to the iPhone firmware.

iPod Touch virus?


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Thursday, July 30, 2009

Today, Charlie Miller will release details of an iPhone virus he and his partner Collin Mulliner discovered. Thankfully this is no iPod Touch virus, so iPod Touch uses are safe. If you're an iPhone user you may want to continue reading this post.

Charlie Miller and his partner discovered the iPhone virus 6 weeks ago. It works through SMS, so technically it's an iPhone SMS Virus. It spreads through SMS messages and doesn't require any files to be downloaded. The attacker only needs to know the victim's phone number, and they can just send an SMS message that contains the virus. Once the SMS is sent the attacker can take over the iPhone instantly! The attacker can steal important data, or even spread the virus to other contacts. This is why iPhone users need to be very careful. This exploit will be released today, and a lot of iPhone users need to be aware of it.

Apple will most likely release a patch in the iPhone 3.1 update. The only thing we can do for now is turn off our iPhones to avoid this exploit.

iTunes Trojan horse Small.BOG virus


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , , , , | Posted on Saturday, July 25, 2009

I just downloaded iTunes 8.2.1 on my Windows 7 PC. I scanned my PC with AVG and AVG detected a Trojan horse Small.BOG virus. Of course, Apple is smart enough not to distribute files with viruses on their servers, and AVG has given me false alerts in the past. Has anyone else here experienced this error? Post it here in the comments. Please post the operating system you're using as well.

Don't be scared to use iTunes 8.2.1. I've double-checked with another anti-virus program and it appears to be safe. If it had a virus Apple wouldn't be distributing it on their site. To be safe, make sure you only download iTunes from and no other site.


Update your definition file for AVG (they recently released one)

Thanks yellowsn0w for the tip!

iPod Touch 3.1 beta 2


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Apple has just released the iPod Touch 3.1, and iPhone 3.1 beta 2 software update to iPhone developers. The build number is 7c106c. If you have a developer account you can download it from the Apple Developer Center.

If you have an unlocked iPhone 3G/3GS you should stay far away from this update. It will permanently block the exploit that ultrasn0w and purplesn0w software uses.

If you do download this update leave a comment and let us know of any changes you find in there!

purplesn0w: iPhone 3GS unlock


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Are you an iPhone 3GS user? Are you using ultrasn0w? Good news. Geohot, the world's first person to ever unlock the iPhone, has released a new unlocking software called purplesn0w.

purplesn0w is still in beta right now, but Geohot claims that it's the best unlock out there. Although the Dev Team already released the ultrasn0w unlock that works with iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G, Geohot decided to make his own unlock and release the source code as well. Unfortunately it only works for iPhone 3GS users, so if you're not an iPhone 3GS user then you must stick with ultrasn0w.

So why would an iPhone 3G user need to use purplesn0w instead of ultrasn0w? Many people were reporting wifi, and battery issues with ultrasn0w and Geohot claims to have fixed this issues with his release.

Downloading and installing purplesn0w on the iPhone 3GS is pretty simple. Here is how to do it:

*Note: This will not work on hactivated iPhone 3GS's yet, Geohot plans on adding support for hactivated iPhones tomorrow. T-mobile users must disable 3G.
  1. Launch the Cydia App
  2. Go to Manage -> Sources
  3. Tap Edit on the top right
  4. Tap Add at the top left
  5. Enter as the Cydia/APT URL
  6. Tap the Add Source button
  7. Once the source has been added, find and install the package
  8. Install the package
  9. Reboot your iPhone 3GS
Just a couple questions for any iPhone 3GS user who tries this. Were you successfully able to unlock your iPhone 3GSwith purplesn0w? If you used ultrasn0w previously, did you notice any difference?

Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Are you an iPhone 3G owner? Do you want to use a carrier other than AT&T on your iPhone OS 3.0? Then you must get ultrasn0w. ultrasn0w is the DevTeam's iPhone OS 3.0 software unlock solution for the iPhone 3G. ultrasn0w is completely free, very easy to install, and works on the iPhone 3G. Remember to thank the DevTeam for all their hard work!

iPhone 3g 3.0 ipsw download | iPhone OS 3


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Friday, June 19, 2009

Many iPhone 3G users downloaded the PwnageTool 3.0 software today. Unfortunately it's only for Mac, and it's complicated to use. I recommend waiting for the QuickPwn jailbreak to be released. iPhone 3G users right now are searching for the iPhone 3G 3.0 IPSW download. Thankfully they can download iPhone 3G 3.0 IPSW from here. I'll put the iPod Touch links on this blog too once they're up.

This file is 230 MB. If you're an iPhone 3G user, wait for ultrasn0w to be released.

Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Friday, June 19, 2009

The big day is here, it's finally Friday! Today iPhone Dev Team plans to release the ultrasn0w unlock for iPhone 3G 3.0 users. With ultrasn0w unlock software, iPhone 3G users can unlock their iPhone 3G on firmware 3.0. The Dev Team has worked really hard on bringing this to us and they plan on releasing it today, along with the jailbreak for firmware 3.0. QuickPwn will do a unlock iPhone 3G 3.0 guide once ultrasn0w is released. I think I'll be sticking with AT&T for now instead of unlocking my iPhone 3G. Will you use ultrasn0w once it's out? Please post your experience here. It'd be interesting to see how useful it is to people.

QuickPwn 3.0 download: iPhone OS 3.0


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Thursday, June 18, 2009

iPhone OS 3.0 software update was just released yesterday. It requires a new jailbreak for iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 1G, and iPod Touch 2G owners. I know many of you here are looking for the QuickPwn 3.0 download. Unfortunately, it's not up yet but Dev Team is working hard at making it and putting up the downloads for you. I'll be adding the links to the Jailbreak iPod Touch 3.0 page once the download is up.

You can also visit the QuickPwn Forums and also follow @QuickPwn on Twitter, or subscribe to QuickPwn YouTube channel for updates and download links.

If you are an AT&T user like me who wants to unlock iPhone 3G 3.0 then you will need to wait until Friday. Friday is when ultrasn0w (the new iPhone 3G unlock software) is released.

iPhone activation server is temporarily unavailable: iPhone OS 3.0 Problem


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Today is the day, Apple has finally released the iPhone OS 3.0 software out to us! I was able to successfully download it to my iPod Touch but unfortunately had problems with the iPhone. I kept getting the iPhone activation server is temporarily unavailable error. I know a lot of other people are getting this error too because I saw a lot of tweets about it. I'll be upgrading my AT&T iPhone later, but my iPod Touch is ready. iPhone OS 3.0 is really fast, I love the spotlight search and copy and paste feature. You are going to like this update! The iPhone 3.0 jailbreak will be out from QuickPwn soon, there is no date announced yet. Feel free to check back here later to see once it's up. Remember, I'll be posting a Jailbreak iPod Touch 3.0 guide once it's available. How is your iPhone OS 3.0 experience so far? Leave a post in the comments.

iPhone 3.0 Release Time


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Tuesday, June 16, 2009

iPhone 3.0 release timeWhen will iPhone 3.0 be released? That is the question a lot of iPhone users are thinking about right now. If you like to jailbreak your iPhone, you must also be wondering about the jailbreaking and unlocking details as well. Don't worry, I'll explain it all in this post.

iPhone OS 3.0 Release Date and Features

First things first! On June 17, 2009 Apple will be releasing the iPhone OS 3.0 update through iTunes. This is happening just in time to compete with the Palm Pre webOS. iPhone OS 3.0 includes a lot of important updates including spotlight search, cut/copy/paste within apps, tethering, in-app purchases, landscape mode for native apps, and a whole lot more. One feature which I was really hoping for was multi-tasking, but Apple did not add this. I do think Apple may add it in the future, they want to implement it properly just like they did with copy and paste. It's definitely worth the upgrade! Unfortunately for us iPod Touch owners, the upgrade will cost $9.95 while all iPhone owners will be able to upgrade to iPhone 3.0 for free. Even with this fee, I'd say it's worth it.

iPhone OS 3.0 and Jailbreaking

I know a lot of you here like to jailbreak your iPod Touches. My Jailbreak iPod Touch 3.0 will be updated tomorrow with details and download for the new iPhone OS 3.0 jailbreak software. iPhone Dev Team has been working hard on the jailbreak and they plan on releasing their iPhone OS 3.0 jailbreak tomorrow right after the iPhone OS 3.0 launch. It will work with both first generation and second generation iPod Touches, and it'll work with all generations of the iPhone as well except for iPhone 3G S. I think the iPhone Dev Team may have already found out a jailbreak/unlock for the new iPhone 3G S but they don't want to share it until they've tested it on an actual 3.0, I'll be sure to post an update here once they do though.

How to update to iPhone OS 3.0

Before I end this post I'd like to tell you how you can update to iPhone 3.0. Updating is really simple, all you need to do is plug in your iPod Touch or iPhone and click the Check for Updates button. Remember, you need iTunes 8.2 in order to update to iPhone OS 3.0. iTunes will prompt you to update to iTunes 8.2 if you haven't already. I suggest doing it right now so you can quickly update tomorrow.

iPhone OS 3.0 download links
I know some people like to just download and restore iPhone OS 3.0 from the web instead of using iTunes to download. I'll post the direct download links to iPhone firmware 3.0 once it's out.

Tomorrow will be a big day! If you're subscribed to the RSS feeds of Free Apple iPod Touch you'll receive updates or you can just bookmark this page and check back. Feel free to comment on this post and post what you think of iPhone OS 3.0.

Download iPhone OS 3.0 firmware


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Wednesday, June 10, 2009

In WWDC 2009 Apple revealed the new iPhone 3G S to us. The iPhone 3G S will be available to the US through AT&T on June 19th, 2009. You can preorder the iPhone 3G S by going to or

Apple also announced the release date for the iPhone OS 3.0 software. You can download iPhone OS 3.0 firmware on June 17 2009. iPhone OS 3.0 firmware will be available to all iPhone owners for free while iPod Touch owners will need to pay an additional $10 fee to download the newer version. The $10 fee is nothing new, Apple did this to iPod Touch owners with iPhone firmware 2.0 also. I will post the free download links for the iPhone OS 3.0 firmware here once it is out. You can download iPhone OS 3.0 GM from torrents but I don't recommend downloading that because it's only for developers and you may be stuck on this firmware if you use it. Just wait until June 19th for the final iPhone OS 3.0 release! I will also post a jailbreak iPod Touch 3.0 guide once it's out.

Developers: Help Apple Test the Push Notification Service


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , , | Posted on Monday, May 18, 2009

Apple just released an Associated Press app to developers to beta test the Push Notification Service. All iPhone Developers should have received the following e-mail from the iPhone Developer Program today:
As a developer actively working with iPhone OS 3.0 beta, we would like your help in testing the Apple Push Notification service. We have selected a pre-release version of the Associated Press app for iPhone OS 3.0 to create a high-volume test environment for our servers.
To participate, we ask that you follow these steps:
Download the pre-release version of the Associated Press app for iPhone OS 3.0 from the iTunes Store via your desktop by entering this unique redemption code in the 'Redeem' section of iTunes, found under the 'Quick Links' section:
This unique redemption code and the functionality of the application will expire in seven days.
Install the application on a development device running iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5 by synching it to iTunes. Make sure to accept notifications when prompted after installation. This application can only be installed on devices running iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5.
When you first run the app, choose U.S. English as your region when prompted. The U.S. English region will receive alerts, the Canadian English region will not. For purposes of the test, AP will be sending a high-volume of real news alerts.
If you do not receive notifications from the app within 48 hours after installation, let us know.

iPhone OS 3.0 will include Background iPhone apps?


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Saturday, May 16, 2009

Background Apps on iPhone OS 3.0

Will iPhone OS 3.0 allow developers to make iPhone apps that run on the background? Apple has been restricting apps from running on the background because they say that background apps drain the battery of the iPhone really fast. According to a post on Business Insider, Apple may allow apps to run on the background when iPhone OS 3.0 is out. Right now this is a rumor, but you if you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch you can still run apps on the background using the free Backgroundr app from Cydia.
