As you already know, Apple released last night the iPhone 5 and made us aware that iOS 6 will be available to the public on September 19th. However, if you have a developer account, iOS6 GM (the final version of the OS) can be downloaded and installed right away.
Here’s how to do it:
Google for iOS 6 GM (you’ll easily find the version for your iDevice) and download it.
Back up your iDevice with iTunes.
Launch iTunes (make sure it’s the latest version), click on your device then on the page that has just shown up, hold SHIFT on your keyboard if you’re on a PC or the option key on OSX and click on Check For Updates button, then point to the place where you have your iOS 6GM file and let it do it’s routine.
If necessary, restore your device from backup and sync with iTunes.
GreenPoison has just release Absinthe 2.0 which will jailbreak (untethered) your iDevice if it runs iOS 5.1.1. This jailbreak tool works with all devices (The New iPad and iPhone 4s included) running iOS 5.1.1. so if you’re on a lower version, make sure you update. However, be ware if you have a locked device and want to preserve your unlock, you’ll need a custom IPSW which can be created with RedSnow. Look for the internet for a lot of tutorials on how can this be achieved.
Once your iDevice is updated to 5.1.1. head over to the Absinthe site and download Absinthe (Windows/Mac/Linux). Then, plug in your iDevice, launch Absinthe, click “Jailbreak,” and wait for Absinthe to complete the jailbreak.
Check out the GreenPoison page below for download links and more info for each device.
Disclaimer: Jailbreak your iDevice at your own risk! I will not be held responsible should anything go wrong during the process and you brick/damage your device.
Diablo 3 players have uncovered a secret level just a few days after the game launched.It’s named: Whimsyshire and, as you can see in the screenshot below, it’s a very colorful level, nothing that you would expect to see in Sanctuary.
The portal to Whimsyshire can be found in Act 1 provided that you’ve collected the right ingredients. Check out THIS link to see what is needed to unlock it.
The day has come! After 12 years, Diablo 3 will launch tonight (15 May 2012 – at 00:00). If you’ve preoredered the game and got the digital copy, you may encounter an error (AN UNEXPECTED ERROR OCCURED WHILE…) when trying to install the game. To fix this, just go into your Battle Net account and redownload the game installer. Then, run it and point it to the location of your previously downloaded Diablo 3 install files and the installer will download another couple of MB of data and then you’re good to go.
Enjoy the game once is launched and let me know your battle tag if you want to play online!
If you’ve got an external USB HDD that goes to sleep in a couple of mins of inactivity and for some games you play off that HDD you get the “unable to read disc” error because of this, there’s fix for you.
Download Dashlaunch 2.28 or later (Google for it) and install/update following THIS tutorial.
Once installed, look for the launch.ini file on your HDD and add the following two command lines (without 1 or 2):
hddalive = true
hddtimer = 210 (where this number represents the seconds interval at which your HDD will be polled with random 16 bytes of data in a text file.
Save your launch.ini file. (CTRL+S in Windows).
Open your HDD and create a .txt file on it named alive.txt
This is it. Now you’ll see that your HDD won’t spin down anymore and you’ll notice strange characters, letters and numbers being written on it at the interval you’ve setup in the alive.txt file on your external HDD.
Enjoy and feel free to share with your friends or others who need this!
Happy New Year to all the readers that made the below possible! See you all in 2012!
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 33,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
