If the newly introduced "Facebook Timeline" feature is not your cup-of-tea, there is no official way to get rid of it. However, thanks to the nifty hack shared ahead "Facebook" users can still revert-back to the old Facebook profile look.
A very good news for everybody using the "Tethered" or "SemiTethered Jailbreak" as finally the wait is over and we now have a Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 (no need to connect your device to a computer while rebooting), dubbed Corona 5.0.1 Untether the very small 44.6 KB only cydia tweak is all you need to get the untethered jailbreak on your iOS 5 apple device. Supporting all supported A4 & lower Apple devices (iPhone 4, iPhone 4 (CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G & iPod Touch 3G), this userland jailbreak is courtesy of pod2g.
It was just a matter of time after Apple made the decrypted ramdisks available with newer build of iOS 5.01 for legal Siri ports to appear, and that time has now come with popular iPhone dev @chpwn releasing the first legal port for "Siri" via Cydia. Dubbed "Spire" the legal port allows hackers to get required Siri files legally (gets downloaded from Apple servers) on older devices like iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G etc.
We all are eagerly waiting for the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, and after the initial announcement by pod2g, some very good news is coming from his end as he confirmed tested, working untethered jailbreak on Apple iPad 1 and iPhone 3GS running iOS 5.01. This basically means that his untethered jailbreak exploit is successful and after proper testing all pod2g needs to do is to package his code and release it, users can definitely expect this as an Christmas gift soon from pod2g soon.
Hackers are trying hard to make sure Siri gets ported to older Apple devices, interestingly helping making things easier for modding community Apple released a new build of iOS 5.01 for iPhone 4S with decrypted ramdisks leaving the underlying filesystem wide-open to be copied and researched upon. Notable iPhone hacker (from iPhone Dev Team) musclenerd tweeted this news with links to grab the new release.
Apple iOS 5.1 Beta 2 finally addresses the iPhone 4S battery drain issue (Batterygate), the latest iOS Beta is currently available only for Apple developers and supports iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, the iPads and the latest iPod Touches. Direct download links to these dev-files are posted after the jump.
Siri has been the top feature in Apple iPhone 4S and is not available officially and legally on older Apple phones like iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, hackers have been trying to get a perfect port of the technology to older devices and it seems the progress is good. In some good development on the porting front a video has not been uploaded to Youtube showing Siri working on an Apple iPhone 3GS - full video after the jump.
Despite some good signs on untethered jailbreak for iOS 5, there is no iOS 5 untethered jailbreak as of now. But thanks to a new tweak "SemiTether" at "Cydia" users can now boot their iDevices running jailbroken iOS 5 without needing a computer.
The semi-tethered jailbreak allows users reboot anywhere but with some limited functionality, "SemiTethred" users can use their phone, text, and many other features but will mostly sacrifice the "Cydia" tweaks which require a usual "Just Boot" re-exploit using "redsn0w".
