Downgrade iOS 6 to iOS 5.1.1 (Tutorial)

Shared Harsh Vardhan (Facebook) (Twitter)

Downgrade iOS 6 to 5.1.1
To  downgrade your device make sure that it is an A4 device or lower version gadget, has SHSH blobs, has a software called Redsnow and a 5.1.1 firmware file for the device present. SHSH is a manual software program designed by Apple to undergo such downgrades while,RedSn0w is a freely available iOS jailbreaking software. If your device succeeds on this criterion then it can be converted back to iOS 5.1.1.
The process for the downgrade simply involves the use of RedSn0w and the SHSH Stitching feature in it. This feature allows combining the IPSW file and SHSH file for iOS 5.1.1 so that it can be downgraded on from iOS 6. All that needs to be done is to follow a series of steps.

  1. The first step for the downgrade is to download RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 on your device (Windows/Mac).
  2. Next download the 5.1.1 IPSW file compatible for your device.
  3. Find the iOS 5.1.1 SHSH blobs of your device and either store it on your PC or on Cydia Apple software. But before proceeding make sure you know the location of the file so that the process can go on smoothly.
  4. Then choose the DFU mode for your device to run on during the downgrade.
  5. Open the RedSn0w software and from it go to Extras.
  6. In the Extras menu go to SHSH blobs and there you will see a button for “Stitch”.
  7. Click it. In the next window that opens click on IPSW button and choose the appropriate file.
  8. In the blobs option, choose “Local” if the SHSH blobs of your device are stored on PC and choose the file.
  9. Select Cydia if the blobs’ location is Cydia.
  10. On the successful selection of both IPSW file and blobs the RedSn0w will start to stitch both the files together.
  11. The result will be an all-encompassing firmware file for iOS 5.1.1. Although Apple has discontinued the signing of iOS 5.1.1 but still you will be able to continue with the process.
  12. In the RedSn0w software go back two pages select the Pwned DFU option. This helps the restoration of iTunes using the stitched firmware. If this is not done an error designated 1600 will occur restricting you to use the app.
  13. When you open iTunes now, it will be found in recovery mode.
  14. Click on the Option button and from the drop box that appears click on restore.
  15. Select the newly merged iOS 5.1.1 file, the prefix for which will be prefixed by ECID of the device which consists of a series of 13 numbers.
  16. Even after restoring has completed you may get an error again in accessing. Go back to RedSn0w, select Extras and choose “Recovery fix” button.
  17. For the recovery to happen change the mobile back again to DFU mode.
  18. With the completion of the recovery, the mobile will be converted to iOS 5.1.1 from iOS 6.
If you follow these simple steps then your gadget will be converted to iOS 5.1.1 swiftly and correctly. Just look out for the requirements of the program.

Sorry to Motorola Atrix 4G, Electrify & Photon 4G no ICS update for them:motorala said

By Vishesh Shrivastava

 We always try to bring news to readers about operating system updates coming to their phones and have been giving details about Android 4.0 ICS updates for some time and more recently Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates. Today we have bad news for Motorola Atrix 4G, Electrify and Photon 4G owners as it seems that not only will their devices not be updated to Jelly Bean but they will also not get the ICS upgrade.

While some consumers are frustrated that their devices still haven’t received Jelly Bean we should spare a thought for the many people whose devices haven’t even received the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update yet. Even worse if you’ve hoped that your phone will eventually get the update and then you find out that it won’t be

 forthcoming. Motorola has now officially confirmed that there will be no ICS upgrade for the Atrix 4G, Electrify and Photon 4G and that their days will be numbered on 2.3 Gingerbread.
NOTE:Motorola has also updated its device upgrade list and as you can see  down the status of these  handsets :

Motorola photon 4g

iPad Mini Mockup Makes Appearance Online

By Sukesh Kumar  

A review-like video was released recently that shows a mockup iPad Mini with its 7.85-inch display. It looks exactly like the older mockups  we’ve seen of this mysterious device, with its curved edges, thinner bezel, dual cameras, and Lightning connector; the only thing missing is the black strip on the back that houses wireless radios. Perhaps Apple will not include such a strip on the iPad Mini.

[Cydia Tweak] StatusColor for ios6 !

Shared By Harkirat Singh(facebook)(twitter) 
"The content of this post is taken from another source(with giving due credit to it's orignal Authors)"
StatusColor is a new jailbreak tweak that brings the iOS 6 Status Bar to iOS 5!
In iOS 6, the grey/silver status bar has been removed and now in applications where that status bar was shown, the status bar is the same colour as the top bar. This in most cases like Messages and Settings is blue, but there are some exceptions, like Notes where it is brown.
Now, you may be jailbroken on iOS 5 and not want to update to the new iOS 6, because maybe you have a iphone4S and there is no jailbreak available. StatusColor brings this exact functionality to iOS 5! The tweak works as it should and I’ve had no issues with it.
You can pickup StatusColor in Cydia for free by tapping HERE on your iDevice.

Samsung Galaxy Tab: US court asks for reconsideration of sales ban

Edited by Vishesh shrivastava
A US appeals court ruled on Friday that a lower court should reconsider a sales ban against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 won by Apple in a patent dispute with the South Korean electronics maker.

The injunction was put in place ahead of a month-long trial that pitted iPhone maker Apple Inc against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in a closely watched legal battle that ended with a resounding victory for Apple last month on many of its patent violation claims.

However, the jury found that Samsung had not violated the patent that was the basis for the tablet injunction and Samsung argued the sales ban should be lifted. US District Judge Lucy Koh said she could not act because Samsung had already appealed.

In its ruling on Friday, the Federal US Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington said Koh could now consider the issue.

The decision comes just a month before the South Korean corporation is expected to unveil the second generation of one of its most successful devices, the stylus-equipped Note.

The Galaxy 10.1 is an older model, but the ban still hurts Samsung in the run-up to the pivotal holiday shopping season.

The world's top two smartphone makers are locked in patent disputes in 10 countries as they vie to dominate the lucrative market, which is growing rapidly.

A US jury found during the just-concluded trial that Samsung had copied critical features of the iPhone andiPad and awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages.

Google maps go underwater while apple maps struggles on Land !

By- Harkirat Singh(facebook)(twitter)

                                                                                    While apple ios6 maps are striving hard to survive on the ground,Google has extended its maps underwater,Thanks to a partnership with The Catlin Seaview Survey, Google Maps now displays StreetView-ish images of the Great Barrier Reef and popular underwater spots around Hawaii and the Philippines. Clear your calendar. Forward your emails. It’s time for an undersea adventure

The company on Wednesday added panoramic undersea images of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the waters off the Apo Islands in the Philippines and underwater life around the Hawaiian islands.

The stunning photos capture fish, plants, turtles and other marine critters going about their business in faraway oceans. Now anyone can get an immersive view of the seas without getting wet or worrying about the bends. Zoom in to check out a manta ray's belly, join a school of fish or study intricate coral up close.

The Street View (perhaps Reef View?) ocean project was first announced in February. Since it launched in 2007, Google Street View has captured 20 petabytes of data in 48 countries. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimates that 95% of the ocean is still unexplored.
