Download xcode_3.2.6_and_ios_sdk_4.3.dmg (note - you need a developer account to access this software. I have instead linked to an open-to-the-public Apple discussion that contains the direct download link Mount the .dmg file Inside the disk image there is an invisible "Packages" folder. To open it select "Go to folder..." command from Finder menu bar and ...

At iPad: Understanding screen rotation lock, Apple says: Beginning with iOS 4.2, the switch previously used for screen rotation lock functions as a silence switch for notifications and system sounds. Sucks, doesn't it? It is still possible to lock the screen rotation on an iPad (and that article explains how); there's just no hardware solution any ...

Searching in a page has been added on to the Google (or whatever you use) search facility. Just tap the search field and enter your search term. Instead of launching the search, scroll down to the bottom of the suggested searches and there will be a section labeled "On This Page". Tapping "Find "_____"" will launch the in-page search feature.

Does iTunes recognize your iPhone? If so, you can start (non-jailbroken), by just going to the Summary page when its plugged in and selecting restore.

I think you are talking about iOS folder. If so, touch and hold one icon till icons begin dithering. Then drag and drop one icon on an other icon which of two you want to folder together. Your ipad will suggest you a folder name. You may change or assume that. Then push the home button.

You must have launched PandoraBox before the reboot of your iPhone, right? When you launch apps that send notifications, they keep the way to identify you and throw notifications to your phone. So the answer to your question is : "the code is running on some PandoraBox machine, not on your iPhone".

I will attempt to straighten all this out. Apple has a nice tool to enter a serial number into a web site and it will look up what model you have for you. http://support.apple.com/manuals/# You can even paste your serial number after the # sign above rather than pasting it into the search field. This is generally all you need to determine which ...

According to Ars Technica, iOS 4.3 will give you a preference pane to configure this on the iPad (so that you can restore the rotation lock).

There is a howto in redmondpie.com for jailbreaking the iPhone 3GS with iOS 4.2.1, but it appears there is no unlock yet. http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-ios-4.2.1-iphone-4-3gs-3g-ipad-ipod-touch-with-redsn0w-0.9.6b4-guide/

You can use the CCK to export photos off an iPhone and import them to the iPad (which isn't new), but no one has yet been able to get the CCK to hook an iPhone up to anything else.

I'd thought I'd share - the best way to do this without needing a paper clip and peeling off your case is to use the SIM PIN function. Turn it on (Settings->Phone-> SIM PIN) and reboot the phone. When it asks to unlock the SIM, just hit cancel. This will have the same effect as removing the SIM Of course do to this you'll need the SIM PIN. For AT&T the ...

The network provider can't see if it's jailbroken or not. They might be able to detect if you're using Skype over 3G or other non-3G apps but they won't be able to discover it by simply jailbraking it.

They never actually made an 8GB iPod Touch 3rd Generation. What they did was lower the price of the 8GB iPod Touch from 229 to 199 and sold it along side the actual 3rd Generation 32GB and 64GB iPod Touches of that year. Technically what you hold in your hand is an iPod Touch 2nd Generation. You're not the first person to notice these kinds of things, ...

MrDaniel above is quite right but I have something more to tell you. The part number you mentioned above belongs to Indonesia region. All MC086ID iPods are definitely a 2nd Geneneration iPod. MC iPods are produced as the latest batch of 2nd Gen iPod touch, while the MB models were the earlier batch. Hence, iPod touch 8GB MC models should be classified as ...

No ,you can't update the the iOS 4.2.1 to iOS 5 in iPhone 3g. The highest supporting operating system of iPhone 3g is iOS4.2.1.(Apple discontinued iPhone 3g on June 2010). If you need iOS 5 like features on your iPhone 3G, try Whitedoor(it may help you). Note: Whitedoor is just an iOS 3.1.3 so you won't be able to run your iOS 4.0-4.2.1 applications on ...

I second that. No problems. I am sending you this post from my iPod touch 2nd generation with iOS 4.2.1.

No. 4.2.1 was the last version of iOS supported by the 3G.

You could put your phone into recovery mode by turning it off, then plugging it in to your computer while holding down the home button. All the data on your phone will be completely erased.

There were quite a few changes. The biggest is that this is the first version of iOS 4 for the iPad, which brings multitasking, folders, unified inbox, air print, air play, and more. This is also the unifying iOS so that the iPad and iPhone and iPod Touch are running the same OS now. You can find an entire list at http://www.apple.com/ios/

YES! I have it currently on my iPhone 4. It's untethered for last-gen devices, but for the iPhone 4 it's a tethered jailbreak, which means that you'll have to connect it to your computer and use the program (redsn0w) to turn on the phone every time the phone gets turned off or looses power. If you don't turn off your phone a lot, then it's not big issue, ...

Having used 4.2 GM on my iPhone 4 for a couple of weeks now I personally find it much much better at managing and minimising memory usage (regular checks using iStat). This should translate to better performance on older devices with limited RAM as less RAM to flash swapping will be required.


3

From the iLounge article Thus far iOS 4.2 appears to perform as well as iOS 4.1 did under similar conditions. Performance even on older devices such as the iPhone 3G is the same as iOS 4.1 and thus far we haven’t observed any significant changes in battery life.

Rene Ritchie, from the TiPb, has been posting really nice walkthroughs for each new iOS version, exploring the new features. I recommend them. I bundled the walkthroughs for iOS 4.2 for iPhone/iPod and iPad here: http://j.mp/exr6un

According to John Gruber, this is not possible, unfortunately: AirPlay is the killer feature for Apple TV. But perhaps we’d better keep that in the future tense for now: it’s going to be the killer feature for Apple TV. After installing today’s various software updates for iOS devices, the only apps I’ve seen where AirPlay works for video are the ...


2

Yes, this would be known. First, the old Apple TV won't be getting the update (since its now iOS based), and therefore wont support airplay. Not sure of any workarounds for an old Apple TV that use the actual AirPlay standard. A hack may exist after 4.2 has been out for a while, but I think most people decided to just move to the new Apple TV instead.

Definitely sounds like its fragmentation-related. I found a few sources, take with a grain-of-salt but it seems to back up the hypothesis. http://sites.google.com/site/tony72/ppc_frag http://www.lagom.nl/misc/flash_fragmentation.html http://www.springerlink.com/content/a2515t43pg067522/ ...

Your primary concern is battery life. The number one battery drainer is when the screen brightness is set higher than necessary. Also make sure Auto-Brightness is turned on. This will somewhat automate the process for you, but it unfortunately isn't as effective as manually adjusting the brightness as needed (while still keeping the Auto-Brightness setting ...


2

Not without a jailbreak. If you get a jailbreak there are various ways to do things such as switch airplane mode on/off, adjust screen brightness, turn wifi/3G on or off. The app SBSettings is one such example. You'd be better off diagnosing your AP problem than jailbreaking your phone for just this feature though in my opinion.
