Apple Censors “Jailbreak,” Thin Lizzy Album Now An Obscenity

Do you know how much Apple hates jailbreaking? Apparently, it’s enough to label the mere mention of it as an obscenity, worthy of the full “**********” treatment. That’s right, searches within iTunes for anything relating to “jailbreak” now shows “j*******k” instead. Somehow, that just makes it sound so much dirtier, Apple. What makes this super funny is Apple’s apparent lack …

Redsn0w Jailbreak Tool To Support Downgrading iOS

When iOS 5.1 released last month, it didn’t really have a lot in terms of new features. Apart from a new (and, to be fair, much improved) camera shortcut and a few other little odds and ends, iOS 5.1 didn’t have a lot to offer those who weren’t rushing out to get the new iPad. If you’re a member of …

iOS 5.1 Jailbreak Coming Soon-ish. Maybe.

If you’re a member of the iOS jailbreak community, you know that sometimes a jailbreaking a new version of iOS can take awhile. While Apple is legally required to tolerate jailbreaking – and by “tolerate” I mean “not sue jailbreakers” – they are not obligated to make it easy. In fact, Apple has long been in the habit of making …
