TinyUmbrella Update Will Bypass SHSH Checks and Restore iDevice Without iTunes




Semaphore is working on an update to TinyUmbrella that will allow users to restore their iDevices without iTunes.

I've been working on a new and improved version of TinyUmbrella that will, among other things, allow you to restore your iDevice without iTunes. With the holiday season and work, this will take me a bit to get working the way I want it. I appreciate your patience and your support. You guys are awesome :) No ETAs yet but I'll post updates here and on twitter.

Semaphore explains that this means bypassing shsh checks will be possible for devices that can be exploited by limera1n (basically all devices available now) and the steaksauce exploit for the mc 2g ipod touch.

You will always be able to install a custom firmware (or stock firmware) following these directions.

1. Enter DFU
2. Run the Exploit
3. Wait for the White Screen
4. Restore the ipsw of your choice.

Some changes to the ipsw will be required. We will post more information as it becomes available.

Matrox Introduces New DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Multi-Monitor Adapters




Matrox today announced connectivity improvements to the Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition and TripleHead2Go DP Edition Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXMs) benefitting Apple Mac notebook and desktop users. The DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP products now come packaged with a Mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable that allows Mac users to connect these external multi-monitor modules directly to the mini-DisplayPort output of their systems to swiftly drive multiple monitors or projectors.

In addition, an upcoming firmware release will enable the support of a dual 1600x900 resolution on DVI monitors, further expanding the list of supported resolutions for greater flexibility when choosing displays.

The Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go GXMs work in conjunction with your system's existing GPU to provide high-quality, uncompressed graphics and video across maximum resolutions of dual 1920x1200 and triple 1360x768 under Mac. With the additional desktop display area, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro users can comfortably run different applications on each monitor or view one application across multiple displays, eliminating the tedious and time-consuming tasks of re-sizing, re-arranging, and re-organising multiple windows. Notebook users can further enhance their productive workflow by using their laptop's LCD as a third or fourth monitor to achieve an unprecedented level of computing efficiency. GXMs are also compatible with Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Pricing and Availability
The Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: D2G-DP-MIF) and TripleHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: T2G-DP-MIF) for Mac are now available at a MSRP of US $239 and US $329 respectively, and can be purchased from authorized Matrox resellers worldwide or, in North America and Europe, directly from Matrox.

Apple Removes Jailbreak API From iOS 4.2




Apple has removed its built in methods to help developers detect jailbroken devices from iOS 4.2, according to NetworkWorld.

This detection API let the MDM applications in effect ask the operating system if it had been compromised. Jailbreak exploits typically change a number of operating system files, and exploit one or another low-level OS features to let users directly load their own or third-party applications.

Previously, developers had created their own series of operating system checks to detect jailbreak.

"We used it when it was available, but as an adjunct," says Joe Owen, vice president of engineering at Sybase, which offers the Afaria device management software. "I’m not sure what motivated their removing that….I’ve not had anyone [at enterprise customer sites] talk to me about this API being present or being removed."

In July of this year the Library of Congress deemed that jailbreaking your iPhone in order to install applications not approved by Apple and/or to unlock is legal.
