Error 1015 Fixer: Exit Recovery Mode In 1 Click ( Windows )

Posted Image

So in the everyday testing/jailbreaking process we run into a multitude of issues and errors. Mainly the errors occur when trying to restore to custom firmwares or downgrading existing firmwares. Always ending up in recovery mode (Connect to iTunes and the plug).

Some errors you can’t avoid or kick out of (i.e error 1600 ), but the 1015 error you get from trying to downgrade, you can using a tool called iRecovery. Which involves cmd line and some typing of cmds that are not always easy to remember.

Well, Windows users we got a new tool for you: Called “Error 1015 Fixer”.Its a one click and you’re done deal. Nothing super exiting here, other than its just a dead simple way to get out of recovery mode.

Packaged up by a regular in the iH8sn0w IRC channel CJ ( @penguinz1). It doesn’t get any easier than this. Even includes links to the libUSB that you need to use the tool.

Now, before you start emailing that this doesn’t fix error 1600 and get all in a tizzy. the tool is called Error 1015 Fixer…not Error 1600 fixer..try iREB for that.

App Store No Longer Supports iOS 2.x Apps

The App Store will no longer support iOS 2.x applications, according to the iOS 4 Readiness Checklist for developers.

Existing apps in the Apps Store and those built using iPhone SDK 3.1.3 should already run on iOS 4 without modification. However, you should test your existing apps on a development device running iOS 4 to be certain there aren’t any compatibility issues. All new applications and updates to existing applications must be built with iPhone SDK 4. Please note, the App Store will not longer support applications that target iOS 2.x.

Apple also recommends resubmitting your application with high resolution artwork for those who have not done this already.

iWork Pages Ported to iPhone

Click the image to open in full size.

By now I’m sure you’ve heard of iWork from Apple. When the iPad was released, Apple released iWork Apps, such as Pages, as iPad only apps. Pages is an easy to use type program similar to Word. Yes, the screenshot above is messy, but its work in progress, and it’s great news for the modding community.

Until now, this app was only available for the iPad, but with a little bit of hacking, some Plist modifications and some patience, the app has now been ported to the iPhone by Steve Troughton-Smith. While all this testing has been done on an iPhone 4, stroughtonsmith has put some hard work into porting the app, and he believes that it will be fully iOS 4 compatible.

At this point, things don’t quite fit, but thats understandable, knowing this App was originally intended for the iPad and it’s higher resolution. It has been noted though that Apple may possibly release an official version for the iPhone 4… [Read More]

iPhone 4 Costs $187.51 To Make. More Than iPhone 3G or 3Gs

Posted Image

Electronista reports that, the iPhone 4 is Apple’s most expensive ever phone to make short of the original phone itself, a price breakdown by iSuppli has found. A 16GB example costs about $187.51 in raw parts; the bill is less than the $223 of the 2007 original but more than the $173 iPhone 3G and the $178.96 iPhone 3GS. Most of that cost increase is attributed to the LG Display-built 960×640 IPS screen, which is estimated to cost $28.50 all by itself.

The next most expensive part is thought to be Apple’s custom-designed, but Samsung manufactured, A4 processor, which could cost about $10.75. Adding a gyroscope from STMicro may have also hiked the price by $2.60 on top of the accelerometer. A front camera also influences the price, but its cost isn’t yet known.

iOS 4.0.1 Release Seems Imminent. Save Your SHSH Blobs Now!

By now, most of you might have heard rumors about the iOS 4.0.1 firmware update which Apple is preparing to release tomorrow in order to fix the ongoing reception issue on iPhone 4. Even though the issue is most likely related to the hardware, the buzz is that Apple is preparing a software fix in order to avoid (Apple sold 1.5 million iPhone 4s on the first day) what could be the biggest recall in the history of consumer electronics.

All iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 2G/3G users on iOS 4 must backup their SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) files now. This is important because if the new firmware update is released tomorrow, Apple will stop signing the old firmware which will make it impossible for you to backup your signatures. Without having SHSH blobs saved, you cant downgrade back to the old firmware should you need to.

If you are on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G/3G, follow the complete step by step guide posted here to save your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella. iPhone 4 users can follow the guide posted here to backup their SHSH files.

If you want to learn more about what SHSH blobs or ECID SHSH files are, you can do so by reading one of my old article posted here.
