YouTube Fix for unlocked iphones (cannot connect to youtube)

Step 1

Download this zip, and unzip it somewhere.

Step 2

Get your activated iPhone ready, and connect to it via SCP or SFTP or whatever you have that lets you access the file system.

Tip: iNdependence is a wonderful program for the Mac that can install SFTP in one click. I recommend this, and Transmit to connect to the SFTP on the iPhone (remember, user “root”, password “dottie”.)

Step 3

Navigate to /var/root/Library/Lockdown on the phone, and upload those three files you unzipped. Overwrite the stuff on the phone.

Tip: Paranoiacs always back up.

Step 4

Navigate to /var/root/Library/Lockdown/activation_records. See that long numbered plist file that looks like “88921140141031443517.plist” or something? The name varies, but you’ll see it. Open it up in your favourite text editor.

Step 5

Find this bit.

Illustration of the bit you need to select

Select what I have selected there.. the bit under DeviceCertificate.

Step 6

Replace that bit with the following:



Save the file back onto the phone. Just make that modification to the phone’s file, upload it to the phone.

Step 7

Reboot the iPhone — you’re done, and can watch Chocolate Rain ten times a day.

New Jersey teen unlocks Apple iPhone, uses on T-Mobile network
Friday, August 24, 2007 - 02:03 PM EDT

"A teenager in New Jersey has broken the lock that ties Apple's iPhone to AT&T's wireless network, freeing the most hyped cell phone ever for use on the networks of other carriers, including overseas ones," The Associated Press reports.

"The New Jersey teen collaborated online with four other people to develop the unlocking process," AP reports.

"George Hotz, 17, confirmed Friday that he had unlocked an iPhone and was using it on T-Mobile's network, the only major U.S. carrier apart from San Antonio-based AT&T that is compatible with the iPhone's cellular technology," AP reports.

"The hack, which Hotz posted Thursday to his blog, is complicated and requires skill with both soldering and software. It takes about two hours to perform," AP reports.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Reader "Ryan" for the heads up.]

Apply custom ringtones to your Iphone (OS X only)

I came across an awesome application called Ifuntastic that allows you to use music files you crop as ringtones. I used garageband to crop some mp3's and exported them as m4a files. The program does work perfectly, however you have to follow the directions each step of the way. The app will seem like it crashes during the process, but be patient, go make a sandwich or something and it'll get the job done soon enough. There are some cautions as with any app, such as auto sync will stop working and you will have to manually sync w/ itune, but it didn't happen to me. I got the app off of demonoid but it is also available HERE!

Hope some of you find this useful!

UPDATE: New version 2.0 is HERE

Explore neighborhoods at street level–virtually

Google Maps has an awesome new feature called Street View. To use it simply zoom out so the entire U.S. map is visible and click the Street View button. This feature is only available in a few cities for now, I can't wait for Cleveland!

Streetview Sitings!

Check out the video tutorial!

Microsoft's version: Not as easy to use in my opinion.

Use Street View to:
View street level photographs (select cities)
Take virtual walks; pan, rotate and zoom
Explore cityscapes, landmarks, points
of interest
Find shops, restaurants, parks, hotels and more

Verizon is trying to stop the t-shirt sales!!

Yes, Verizon has sent an E-mail to threatening a lawsuit for copyright infringement! Checkout the Digg posting and don't forget to Digg this and help make Verizon look worse then they already do. Seems like a stupid move in my opinion, VerizonMath was beginning to fade away. Next thing you know, Verizon gives it CPR and now it will be back and more popular than ever!

Apple IPhone to be released in June!

All the rumors ended up being true. Apple has created a phone that will be available for Cingular customers called the IPhone. Don't know how they were able to use the name since Linksys already has an IPhone, but Apple has good lawyers. Anyways, the phone itself looks great and perhaps the best feature that other might overlook is the multi-input touchscreen. This senses when two fingers are touching the screen and allows you to resize images by simply moving your fingers apart or together. Checkout to get more information about the IPhone.
