Toyota pulls Cydia theme and ads to appease Apple

In news that will no doubt shake the very bedrock of your belief system, Apple has asked Toyota to remove its Scion theme and its advertising from ModMyi, a Cydia repository. The Scion theme has been available for weeks, but after it received a ton of press in the last couple of days, Apple finally lashed out. It's not like we should be surprised, considering Apple has claimed in the past...

TruPrint for iOS supports many more printers than AirPrint, only works on jailbroken devices

Sure, iOS 4.2 and newer versions have AirPrint -- which lets you print from your iDevice to any of the supported printers. However, if you don't own one of the select few models, you're pretty much left without any workable printing support in iOS. That's where TruPrint comes in - if you've decided to step into the dark side and jailbreak your iDevice, that is. TruPrint supports many more...

MobileNotifier dramatically improves iOS push notifications, requires jailbroken device

One of the things that, while not broken, but surely ripe for some improvements in future iOS versions, is the notification system. Not the idea itself, which is great, but the way that notifications interrupt anything you're doing and demand your immediate attention -- unless you dismiss them, which means you may never remember that you've received a particular message. MobileNotifier...

Theme it brings iOS theming to iPhones via Cydia

Theming on iOS really depends on whether you've jailbroken your device or not. If not, then changing your wallpaper is about as far as customization goes. If you have chosen to step into the 'dark side', then there are many more options for making your iPhone stand out in the crowd. However, up until today, finding worthwhile themes involved searching for them in the Cydia app store, and that...

Theme It is a new theme store for jailbroken iPhones

One of the best things about a jailbroken iPhone is the ability to customize the entire interface to your liking. Theme It, a new app store for jailbroken iPhones, aims to make re-theming your iPhone extremely easy. Theme It will work a lot like Cydia, offering an iPhone app and a mobile website to browse and purchase themes. That's right, these are paid themes. Theme It's creator told...

8000 iPhone and Android devices hacked to form a botnet

It was only a matter of time. First, jailbroken iPhones were humorously Rickrolled by a worm, and now both iPhones and Android phones have been exploited to form a botnet that is over 9,000 devices strong! Fortunately, like the Rickroll, the botnet was a benign experiment by two researchers at TippingPoint Digital Vaccine Labs; a proof of concept, just to see how easy it would be. No one was...

Jailbroken iPhones in Australia getting Rickrolled by a worm

If the possibility of having your jailbroken iPod Touch or iPhone held ransom for 5 Euros wasn't enough of a scare to make you change your root password, maybe this will. Users on an Australian forum site are reporting a new attack - one that's no stranger to love. You guessed it, the newest attack on jailbroken devices is a wallpaper Rickroll. Along with Rick Astley's devilishly handsome...

New app monitors ĀµTorrent from your jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch

Sure, you can just use Safari and µTorrent's built-in WebUI to monitor your torrents - and you'll have to if you're not the swashbuckling, jailbreaking type. Those of you who don't mind getting a little colored snow on your iPhone or iPod Touch, however, can use µMonitor. Rejected from the App Store, the developer has decided to do an end run around Apple and release µMonitor...

Cydia creator releases tracking opt-out for jailbroken iPods and iPhones

Opened Cydia on your jailbroken iPod Touch or iPhone today? If so, you probably noticed an item on the front page about PrivaCy "Opt-Out." Recently there's been a lot of talk about app developers like Pinch Media harvesting analytics from users of their applications. There are plenty of good reasons for them to do this -- such as learning how to make their applications better. Still, some people...
