New Jailbreak iOS 7- 7.0.4 How to Install Cydia with RageBreak (Tethered)

A tethered jailbreak for iOS 7 has been released based off of winocm's opensn0w project and ported by a man called RageMasta. This is not the final untethered jailbreak we have all been waiting for but it is the firts user jailbreak port for iOS 7.

This jailbreak is based off of the old limera1n exploit so it only works with devices with an A4 chip. Unfortunately it only works with the only A4 device that is capable of running iOS 7, the iPhone 4. 

This jailbreak is compatible with the

  • iPhone 4 (GSM iPhone 3,1)
  • iPhone 4 (GSM iPhone 3,2)
  • iPhone 4 (CDMA iPhone 3,3)

*jailbreak currently does not work with 3,2 on windows

Keep in mind this is a ported version of Cydia from iOS 6 so you may encounter glitches

1. Download and install the latest version of java dev kit here to ensure compatability and download the jailbreak tool RageBreak from RageMasta.com for either Mac or PC

2.  Open the RageBreak application (run as administrator on PC)

3. On PC click the first option then click OK and on Mac type 1 in the terminal prompt and press enter. This will download and build the tool

4. Connect your iPhone 4 to your computer now you will need to enter DFU mode. To do this press and hold both the power and home buttons for a total of 10 seconds, once that's passed release the power button while continuing to hold the home button for 10- 15 seconds (DFU video guide here )

5. If you are running a PC skip to step six. For Mac when the app is finished press enter, when prompted the password is alpine and press enter (required more than once). When process is finished go to RageBreak menu and put your device in DFU mode again from step four. Type 2, 3 or 4 for your phone model and press enter.

6. For Mac skip to step seven and for PC  select the second option to jailbreak and click OK. Click OK again and and OK to transferring files and retutn to the main window. Enter DFU mode again from step four and click the boot option for your device and click OK. 

*You'll need to do this tether boot process every time you need to reboot as it is a tethered jailbreak

7. Return to the main screen and obtain your phone's Wi-Fi IP address by going into the iPhone Settings>Wi-Fi and click 'i' next to your network. Type '5' on Mac and click the fourth option on PC and imput the IP address from your phone and press enter. If asked type y and enter and the password is alpine. Enter DFU mode again from step 4 and boot tethered by clicking the boot option for your device on PC and on Mac type 2,3 or 4 for what device you have and press enter. This will boot your device tethered. 

8. Have fun! You are now jailbroken and your device is free. The wide world of jailbbreaking is at your fingertips.

How much of an Apple Fanboy are you? [INFOGRAPHIC]

There are many different types of Apple fans. Young and old, the obsessed and the ones who just enjoy their products. But what does it take to call yourself a fanboy? I always thought it was anyone that blindly followed Apple and hated all other products. But now I define it as an appreciation for Apple and their high quality of engineering and ecosystem. So I'm happy to call myself one, but if you watch any of my older videos you will see me wholeheartedly rejecting being called a fanboy. 

Some people use the Apple "fanboy" stereotype in arguments as if to make their contender's opinion null and void but if anything it just proves that you have an appreciation for the product that they do not understand, and if their opinion is that strong against Apple then they are probably fanboys of the opposite side (Android) or just aren't very tech savvy.

So with that in mind let's take the test! Curetosy of Mackeeper.com

I scored a 75%, so I'm not stark raving mad about Apple, just a little obsessed. What did you score? Leave it in the comments below.

iPad Mini Unboxings & Reviews Are In

Apple has begun shipping on the 7 inch tablet and some lucky Apple fans have got their iPad minis earlier than expected, mostly blunders by resellers for which are pictured below. 

The tech giant has also sent some early models of the iPad Mini off to some of the big tech sites like The Verge and Engadget for review and they are now in. Mostly they note that the smaller screen takes some time to get used to and the main annoyance is the pixelation compared to the full sized retina iPad.
