iVPN is a great substitute for Lion Server’s terrible VPN

If you've read through our blog at length, you'll know that we've had a difficult time getting Lion Server to allow VPN connections from PCs.  From modifying registry files to typing in terminal commands, we couldn't find an easy way to help our customers implement Snow-Leopard-era VPN features on Lion Server.  Unfortunately, Apple removed a lot of features from the GUI (graphical user interface), which makes it almost impossible for a normal user to enable [...]

Jailbreak Resources for the Adventurous

It seems like I'm asked about a new jailbreak for iOS 5 a few times a week.  As of this writing... there isn't one.  In fact, Apple is currently working on an update to address potential battery issues for the iPhone 4S.  When it becomes public information that a new iOS update is on it's way, we won't see a new jailbreak until after that shows up. It's a cat and mouse game.  It's not [...]

Mac OS X Lion Application Compatibility: RoaringApps

If you're not using one of the applications we've discussed in our compatibility series, we'd suggest checking out RoaringApps.com.  They developed a compatibility wiki that allows anyone to search through the application list and see what works and what does not.  We took a quick look through the list and found a very polished interface with a lot of valuable information. We'll still update the blog when we hear about extreme cases of incompatibility but [...]

Mac OS X Lion Application Compatibility: Rosetta Applications

We're not trying to annoy you with duplicate content, but we want to emphasize the fact that Lion does not support Rosetta applications.  We covered this in depth in a previous article.  If you're a long-time Mac user, you'll probably have applications that will not work with Lion from a fundamental level. Rosetta applications cannot, will not run on Lion.  We heard murmurs of third-party enablers for Rosetta on Lion, but the application developers and [...]

Move your App Data and SMS manually – Verizon iPhone from AT&T

We wrote previously that the Verizon iPhone couldn’t restore from an AT&T backup due to the differences in firmware.  We've seen a huge spike in traffic for that post and it said, "you're stuck."  That wasn’t the ideal solution but, at that time, we didn't know of any alternatives.  After talking with one of our readers (thanks, Matt), we dug into the issue a little bit more.  If your old AT&T iPhone was running a [...]

Early this morning, @comex, @chpwn and @saurik worked together to get the latest version of JailbreakMe.com up and running for the masses.  To be clear, comex is the genius responsible for this new jailbreak, but chpwn and saurik are helping him out as well.  I'm beginning to think that comex is the only person on the iPhone Dev Team.  :D Anywho, if you're feeling adventurous, head over to the website and click the "Free" button.
