Hide SMS Preview in iPhone OS 3.0

Things have changed with the release of the 3.0 firmware which now allows you to hide the preview of any incoming SMS. To activate this feature, simply go to Settings > Messages > and turn “Show Preview” off. As you can see on the image below, Apple also added a feature that will alert you two more times after receiving a SMS if you don’t read it right away. This is a feature that has also been available for a long time to jailbreakers.

Hiding the preview of an SMS won’t completely hide it from showing up on your springboard. You will still get a popup showing the name of the sender and “text message”, with the option for you to view the SMS or just close the popup.

That was a much needed option but I think it’s too bad you still see the name of the sender (or his phone number if not in your contacts). It’s a matter of privacy. A name showing up on your iPhone can still lead to awkward moments.

Read Favourite Web Page Offline Using InstaPaper

Instapaper.com is a website that basically offers bookmark service and lets you view the web page later when you have spare time. I’m an avid users for these kinds of bookmark websites. Spent a great deal of the time on the web, I used to bookmark some great articles and read about them thoroughly later. But what differentiate InstaPaper from other similar bookmark websites is the release of its iPhone application – InstaPaper. Work in conjunction with InstaPaper.com, InstaPaper lets you download the saved web pages onto iPhone and view them offline. So, you can always put those great blog, magazine or newspaper articles in your pocket.

For optimization purpose, by default, InstaPaper strips off all images and download the text version of the saved article. You can read the article in both portrait or landscape mode. If you’d like to read the whole web page in the original format, InstaPaper also provides you with such option in its setting screen. InstaPaper offers both free and pro version. The free is fully functional and good enough for normal offline reading. The Pro version adds a number of enhancements including:
  1. Position-saving: Resume any article where you left off
  2. Tilt scrolling: A fancy function. Just tilt your iPhone to scroll the page
  3. Adjustable font including font type, size, and colour

How To Use InstaPaper

Like many other bookmark services, InstaPaper requires you to first register on its website. The registration is very straightforward. An email and password are enough for the registration. After registration, follow InstaPaper’s instruction to save a “Read Later” bookmarklet in your browser. Then whenever you come across an article you want read later, click “Read Later” bookmark to save it.

To download the saved article to iPhone, just launch InstaPaper and log into InstaPaper.com with the registered account. That’s it. InstaPaper will automatically download the article for offline viewing.

Probably, you wonder why still need such application when your iPhone can always connect to the Internet via EDGE / 3G network service. I’m not sure the price of an unlimited data plan in your country. The ability, provided by InstaPaper, to read web page offline looks really promising for those readers (at least for me) without an unlimited data plan. You can download a free version of InstalPaper with this iTunes direct link. But remember before using InstaPaper, you’ll need to register at InstaPaper.com.

iPhone Dev Team Delays The Releases of iPhone 3GS Jailbreak

The iPhone Dev Team officially announced that it will hold on on the release of the iPhone 3GS jailbreak. The reason is simple. Apple is most likely coming up with 3.0.1 firmware very soon. Releasing the jailbreak would basically allow Apple to figure out what exploit the Dev Team used to jailbreak the 3GS and fix it.

According To iPhone Dev Team:

Here’s the critical point, the reason why we’re delaying our version of the jailbreak: Once the jailbreak is out, Apple will fix the iBoot-family bug we use to accomplish it. They will simply stop signing the old iBoots and only sign the fixed ones. If you bought your phone after Apple has done this, there’s nothing you can do…the jailbreak isn’t going to work for you.

It is possible that Apple will find the bug we use without our handing it to them on a silver platter (via a public jailbreak). In that case, we will have delayed our jailbreak for “nothing”. But we’d rather be safe than sorry!

Apple is surely coming out with a 3.0.1 firmware release shortly. They need to fix ultrasn0w. They need to fix some UI issues. 3.0 is buggy and 3.0.1 is coming. We’re going to wait and see what 3.0.1 brings before figuring out the release date for our version of the jailbreak.

In the meantime, we have some remaining 3.0 jailbreak issues to investigate, including push notification. Thanks for being patient with us while we took a 3GS “timeout”!


Hopefully, Apple will release 3.0.1 soon and won’t find the bug used to jailbreak the iPhone 3GS.

Guide To Jailbreak iPhone 3G For 3.0 Firmware Using Redsn0w (Windows)

Developed by iPhone Dev Team, Redsn0w is a replacement of QuickPwn to jailbreak iPhone 3.0. The jailbreak process is very straightforward that any iPhone owner can manage the jailbreak. Visit at iPhone Dev Team Blog for more information about Redsn0w.



Please read through the below notes before taking action to jailbreak your iPhone 3G:
  • RedSn0W only suitable for the recent iPhone OS 3.0 firmware updated.
  • This jailbreak guide is designed for Windows user only. For Mac user, you can use PwnageTool 3.0 to jailbreak.
  • Redsn0w is work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch, iPod touch 2G and the iPhone 3G (not the iPhone 3GS).
  • For iPhone 3GS user, please do not use Redsn0w to jailbreak your new iPhone. Presently, there is no way to jailbreak iPhone 3GS.
  • If you’re using lower version of firmware (e.g. 1.1, 2.0, 2.1 or 2.2), you can also follow these jailbreak procedures to upgrade the firmware to 3.0. But please bear in mind, that you’ll have to re-install all the Cydia applications after upgrade. And, at the time I write this post, not all Cydia applications (e.g. AptBackup, iBluetooth, Backgrounder, iRealSMS, MySMS, BossTool, Quickgold) are compatible with iPhone 3.0. So, if you have any cydia applications that you rely on, please ensure its compatibility before upgrading.
Step 1: Make sure you have upgraded to iTunes version 8.2 and backup your iPhone data by synchronizing it with iTunes 8.2.

Step 2: Download RedSn0w 0.7.2 (or download here) and iPhone 3G 3.0 firmware. Save them all in the same folder. Extract/unzip Redsn0w. Make sure you have all the files in place before continue.

Installing iPhone 3.0 OS via iTunes 8.2

Step 3: Just connect your iPhone to your computer via USB cable and launch iTunes. Select your iPhone in iTunes. You might see all information about you iPhone and the button “Upgrade” and “Restore” appear in iTunes window.

Step 4: Hold the “SHIFT” key and click the “Restore” button simultaneously. The iTunes file dialog will pop up for you to select the firmware file. Locate the “iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw” that you have downloaded in previous step and click “Open”.

Step 5: iTunes will then restore your iPhone with firmware 3.0 automatically. Keep your iPhone connected, don’t touch anything and wait until the process complete.


Jailbreak using RedSn0w

Step 6: Your iPhone should completely restore to firmware 3.0. But it’s still locked right now. Please power off your iPhone (but keep it connected with USB cable). However, If your bought unlocked iPhone original from factory settings you iTunes shows that your iPhone is unlock successfully and you don't need to unlock it, just proceed to the next step.

Step 7: Launch RedSn0w to start jailbreak your iPhone 3G. Make sure your iPhone connect via USB cable and then click "Next" button to proceed.


Step 8: You are required to provide the firmware 3.0 IPSW file. Click “Browse” button to locate the “iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw” were you had downloaded in Step 2.

Redsn0w will then verify the firmware file. If it’s correct, redsn0w will show the message “IPSW successfully identified”. Then click “Next” button to continue.

Step 9: You are required to configure the settings for RedSn0w. Normally, you could mark all checkboxes (i.e. Install Cydia, Install Icy). If you would like not to install icy, just left “Install Icy” unmarked. Click "Next" button to proceed.


Step 10: Redsn0w will instruct you to put your iPhone into DFU mode. Ensure your iPhone is connected (via USB) and it’s turned OFF. If you’re ready, click “Next” to continue.

Step 11: Redsn0w automatically puts the iPhone into DFU mode. After that, you’ll be instructed to hold the "Power" button for 3 seconds. Then hold "Power" and "Home" buttons together for 10 seconds. Next, release "Power" button and continue to hold "Home" button for 30 seconds until your iPhone is in DFU mode.

Note: Timing is very important here, if you may not be able to put the iPhone into DFU mode for the first trial. Simply click the “Back” button to go back and try to follow the instructions again. Redsn0w will start the jailbreak process only if it detects your iPhone is properly put into DFU mode.

Step 12: If you have successfully put the iPhone into DFU mode, redsn0w will automatically start the jailbreak process.


Step 13: During jailbreaking process, your iPhone screen shows downloading jailbreak data and flashing NOR progress. What you have to do just keep waiting and don’t touch anything to your iPhone.


Step 14: RedSn0w will let you know the jailbreak process is successful. Your iPhone will be restarted automatically. This process will take 3-5 minutes to complete. Just wait until the process been done and your iPhone will be rebooted again.

Step 15: Now jailbreaking process has complete with iPhone 3.0 OS. Finally, sync back your iPhone to restore your backups data with iTunes 8.2.

Step 16: If your iPhone 3G is still unlock and not receive your carrier signal, you can checkout my post on how to unlock iPhone 3G for OS 3.0 using Ultrasn0w. For those who already use unlocked iPhone version from previous factory setting you can ignore this step. However this step is use full for those who would like to unlock the iPhone 3G.

Jailbreak And Unlock For iPhone 3GS Confirmed

Less than a week after the launch of the iPhone 3GS, the Dev Team confirmed it will soon be possible to jailbreak the 24Kpwn exploit that the hybrid team used on the iPod Touch 2G. This 24Kpwn exploit applies for the bootrom of the iPhone 3GS. In other words, you will soon be able to use RedSn0w to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS.

The other news is that once jailbroken, you will be able to use the current version of UltraSn0w to unlock the iPhone 3GS.

This is great news, but how did it happen? Why didn’t Apple fix this in their normal cat&mouse fashion? Well it seems this bootrom was cut in about the August 2008 timeframe, so the unintended early reveal of 24Kpwn earlier this year didn’t affect the iPhone 3GS.

Important: Apple has not given up on the cat&mouse game, and in fact there are challenging aspects of the 3GS jailbreak that aren’t in the other devices. It’ll take some time to safely work these into our tools, but the fundamental weaknesses are there: The bootrom is exploitable via 24Kpwn, and the baseband is exploitable via ultrasn0w. (And just like with the 3G, ultrasn0w for 3GS requires that you not update your baseband when Apple comes out with new firmware.)

If you’re really into iPhone hacking, the Dev Team released the technical notes about the 24Kpwn exploit in the iPhone 3GS. These notes can be found here. There is no information so far on the expected release date of the iPhone 3GS jailbreak but I am confident the Dev Team will have it ready within the next 2 weeks. The sooner, the better. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m going nuts with my unjailbroken iPhone.

iPhone OS 3.0 Feature Comparison


Apple claimed that iPhone 3.0 OS comes with over a hundred new features for your iPhone. You may have already upgraded to iPhone 3.0 OS and are enjoying all the new features. But there is a catch. Not all iPhones can support all the new features bundled in iPhone 3.0. Apple has published a chart that highlights the difference. As you can reveal from the feature chart, if you’re still using the iPhone 2G (i.e. 1st generation iPhone), you will not be able to use MMS, stereo bluetooth and Internet tethering. And, to enjoy all new features in iPhone 3.0 OS, you better upgrade to the new iPhone 3GS. You might be would like to read iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G feature comparison.

Please also note the following:

1. Peer-to-peer connectivity requires compatible applications, which can be downloaded from the App Store when available.
2. For iPhone 2G, it does not support using Bluetooth for peer-to-peer connectivity. It can only use Wi-Fi and cellular data networks for peer-to-peer connectivity.
3. MMS is not available in all areas. Please check with your carrier for details.
4. Internet tethering is not currently offered in the United States and some other countries. Please check with your carrier for availability.

Preview: psx4iphone PlayStation Emulator Running On iPhone 3GS

iPhone “jailbreak artist” ZodTTD released a video showing psx4iphone, a PlayStation emulator, running on a non-jailbroken iPhone 3GS and it looks great (see video below). Zod has asked those interested to send $10 plus your 40 character device id to zodttd@zodttd.com.

I now have psx4iphone running very speedy on the 3GS. It’s at the point where Final Fantasy 7 is fullspeed at very least without sound. The build is rough around the edges, as you can’t switch games without restarting the emulator, and only memory card saves are currently working, no save states just yet. Both these issues are being worked on.
