    So you jailbroke your iPhone or iPad after the evasi0n jailbreak process was released last week, but you discovered that it just wasn't for you. You prefer the stock feel of iOS over the seemingly never-ending sea of mods and tweaks. There's nothing to be ashamed of, and there's no reason to fret, even if you didn't backup before jailbreaking … like you should have. The unjailbreaking method is relatively quick and very easy. All you need is iTunes, your Lightning or 30-pin cable and your iDevice. A couple clicks and no more than a half-hour later, and you will be back ...

    Rarely has the "lull" between trade shows given us so much to talk about. We kicked off the week with an exciting announcement welcoming two new members to the Pocketnow team, and since then we've barely been able to keep news, editorials, and videos on the front page long enough to read them. This feed is on fire. From ever-strengthening rumors about the HTC M7 and Samsung Galaxy S IV, to interviews with newcomers like Jolla, to new looks at old friends with BlackBerry 10, to modding and jailbreaking today's top smartphones, we've gotten a lot done since the last episode of the Weekly, ...

    If it's your first time jailbreaking, opening Cydia – the alternative application catalog installed during the jailbreak process – for the very first time can be quite daunting. There are hundred, maybe even thousands, of great mods, and getting your bearings in Cydia isn't exactly easy. However, there are plenty of ways to get started. In the video below, I have included the first five things you should do after performing the jailbreak. These five mods will help you get the most out of your iDevice: raw power and unprecedented performance, quick access to your favorite features or ...

    Something that has always bothered me about iOS is that there are heavy animations throughout the operating system. Whether you're moving between items in a list, going back to the homescreen, launching apps, opening folders, or emailing a photo, there are long, slow animations at every turn. This gives the appearance of smoothness and fluidity, but it's also tremendously ineffecient. Android lets you turn off animations in Developer Options out of the box, but in iOS, you can't doing anything about it. Unless, that is, you jailbreak and download the free app Accelerate. It lets you set a ...

    The big news for iOS this week is the arrival of the first jailbreak for the iPhone 5, in the form of evasi0n. The untethered jailbreak lets any iOS user, regardless of which model they're using, open up their phones or tablets to a new world of customization; we've already shown you a few cool things you can do once you install the hack. While it's only been available for a few days, evasi0n is already proving to be wildly successful, with reports of its installation on nearly seven million iOS devices. According to Cydia stats, evasi0n has been installed on 5.15 million iPhones, 1.35 ...

    Even if it takes six Skype calls to make a podcast happen, we're gonna do it for you folks, because that's just the kind of guys we are. And it's a good thing, too; while the news cycle has calmed down somewhat in the wake of last week's big BlackBerry event, there's still plenty to talk about from the worlds of Android and Windows Phone, from rumors and speculation to ... well, no, just rumors and speculation, really. But it's scintillating stuff, especially if you're into things named "M7" and "Nokia Tablet." All that, plus listener mail and a heaping helping of Joe Levi's robot voice, ...

    It's been nine days since Apple publicly released iOS 6.1, and two since team evad3rs launched its evasi0n untethered jailbreak. That spelled an end to the four-and-a-half month grace period Apple enjoyed where none of its users running current software could employ an untethered jailbreak. Today we learn that Apple has already started seeding an iOS 6.1.1 beta to its developers, making us wonder if the company is trying to quickly shut the door on the evasi0n jailbreak. From what we heard yesterday, evasi0n relies on a whole bunch of separate exploits in order to worm its way into iOS ...

    While most of us are only going to focus on the end results of a massive hack like the one the evad3rs managed to pull off to produce their evasi0n jailbreak, some of us smartphone fanatics are just as interested in exactly what steps needed to be taken to overcome Apple's heavyweight iOS security system. Luckily for us, evad3rs member David Wang (planetbeing) spoke to Forbes to reveal just what tricks evasi0n uses to sidestep Apple's protection. Wang's report isn't quite a full technical description of exactly what evasi0n does to achieve its jailbreak down to every last system call, but ...

    To Jailbreak or not to Jailbreak, that's the question we've received everywhere for the last 24 hours since Evasi0n was released, and we do understand the concerns of many of you. The fact of the matter is that it's really a matter of personal preference, and while some may be extremely inclined to do it because of their daily needs of their iPhone or iPad, some users don't really use their iOS products in a way that would warrant it. Jailbreaking an iPhone is very different to rooting an Android device. On Android, rooting allows you to load custom ROMs that enable you to really push the ...

    First we showed you how to get it done on the iPad, and now it's the iPhone's turn. For those of you fans of the Jailbreak underworld, the time has come. Evasi0n was finally released today for all iOS 6 compatible devices, and it’s as easy and stable as the most popular Jailbreaks we’ve seen in the past. Jailbreaking will allow you to side-load applications and services to iOS 6 that Apple has either not intended or not considered for your device. And as we historically know, many of these solutions have served to make iOS what it currently is since Apple has hired a couple of the ...
