IOS 9.2 jailbreak status: what we no so far 

By Cody Lee IDOWNLOADBLOG

It’s been more than 2 months since Apple killed the iOS 9.0.x jailbreak, and in that time we’ve seen the public release of iOS 9.1, 9.2, and a beta version of 9.2.1, with no update to the Pangu tool. So as you can imagine, we’ve received a lot of questions regarding the current status of the jailbreak. Here is what we know so far.
Past
For a little context, Apple released iOS 9 on September 16. That was quickly followed by iOS 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 later in the month, with significant bug and security fixes. The iOS 9 jailbreak landed on October 13, courtesy of the talented Pangu Team, and it was compatible with all versions of iOS 9 we had seen up until that point.
Present
Pangu’s jailbreak tool was officially broken by Apple on October 21, with the release of iOS 9.1, which patched several security exploits used by the team of hackers. Thus, 9.0.2 is the latest version of iOS that’s eligible to be jailbroken, and Apple has long stopped signing the software, meaning you can’t up/downgrade to it.
Future
We’ve heard that both Pangu and TaiG are working on jailbreak tools for the latest public version of iOS, which is 9.2. In fact, a recent report pointed to a Weibo post by TaiG partner 3K Assistant which indicated their tool is nearly complete. Unfortunately, that’s all we’ve heard—we have no knowledge of an exact release date.
What now? Now we sit and wait. The aforementioned teams aren’t much for status updates, and they have been extremely sporadic with recent releases. An iOS 9.2 jailbreak could literally come at anytime. So for those of you anxiously awaiting its arrival, be sure to stay tuned to iDB, because as soon as we know more, you’ll know.
Should you update to iOS 9.2?
It really depends on your situation. Obviously, if you are on iOS 9.0.x and are either enjoying a jailbreak or still considering it, you should stay put. If you’re on iOS 9.1, that’s a tougher call, because although it’s extremely unlikely we’ll see an iOS 9.1-only jailbreak, it’s possible. For what it’s worth, if I were on 9.1, I would update.

My Home Screen On My iPhone 6S Plus

Hello everyone. My name is Ben Beedell and I’m Mikes friend from London, England who’s also going to be posting various things on here relating to iOS Jailbreaking. I’ve been a big fan of Jailbreaking, and I’ve Jailbroken every iDevice I’ve owned over the years. Below is my current setup on my new iPhone 6S Plus. Unfortunately at this moment in time I’m running the latest iOS 9.2 firmware which there is no jailbreak for at the moment. Let’s hope soon a new jailbreak will become available for anyone running iOS 9.2

Geohot is building self driving car

Geohot, the first person to unlock the original iPhone, has built a self driving car in just one month in his own garage. 
Geohot has equipped a 2016 Acura with graphics chips that normally power video game consoles and Intel chips to run his AI calculations. The car also features six cameras — similar to the ones found in smartphones — to gather data and images surrounding the vehicle. It has a 21.5-inch monitor and joystick controller that enables self-driving mode. Geohot says his costs to develop the system are $50,000 thus far — with most of that consisting of the car itself ($30,000). 

Part of what motivated Geohot to build the car was a bet with Telsa’s Elon Musk. Tesla currently gets its driver-assist technology from Mobileye, a company that Geohot says is “behind the times” with the technology.
There was a proposal that if Hotz could do better than Mobileye’s technology in a test, then Musk would reward him with a lucrative contract. Hotz, though, broke off the talks when he felt that Musk kept changing the terms. “Frankly, I think you should just work at Tesla,” Musk wrote to Hotz in an e-mail. “I’m happy to work out a multimillion-dollar bonus with a longer time horizon that pays out as soon as we discontinue Mobileye.”
“I appreciate the offer,” Hotz replied, “but like I’ve said, I’m not looking for a job. I’ll ping you when I crush Mobileye.” Musk simply answered, “OK.”

Geohot says his approach is different than what most autonomous vehicle technology consists of. He says he’s come up with some discoveries that improve how AI software interprets data coming from cameras. In essence, instead of writing hundreds and thousands of lines of code to tell the vehicle what to do in certain scenarios, Geohot has developed a “deep-learning” way for the vehicle to simply learn what to do after being manually driven around. Geohot’s software is based on just 2,000 lines of code and he has even launched his own company, comma.ai.
The major advance he will discuss is the edge that deep-learning techniques provide in autonomous technology. He says the usual practice has been to manually code rules that handle specific situations. There’s code that helps cars follow other vehicles on the highway, and more code to deal with a deer that leaps into the road. Hotz’s car has no such built-in rules. It learns what drivers typically do in various situations and then tries to mimic and perfect that behavior. If his Acura cruises by a bicyclist, for example, it gives the biker some extra room, because it’s seen Hotz do that in the past. 
Besides unlocking the original iPhone, Geohot also jailbroke the PS3, released his own Android root, and much more. Geohot has worked at Google, Facebook, SpaceX, and more.

Apple Watch Sport goes on sale at wal-mart

This is the post from IDB about the Apple Watch 

and now…Walmart. Apple Watch is pretty much ubiquitous these days when it comes to American retail stores, and the addition of Walmart as an official retailer is just icing on the cake.


Granted, Apple Watch sales at Walmart are quite limited, with only the Sport model being offered, and further limitations have been placed on available colors.


Nonetheless, having the Apple Watch, in any incarnation, is a big deal and a big win for Apple and potential customers. It turns the visibility level of the popular wearable all the way to level 11.

Walmart is selling both the 38mm and the 42mm Apple Watch Sport models with a Space Gray aluminum case with a black band or a Silver aluminum case with a white band. The 38mm model is selling for $349, while the larger 42mm casing is going for $50 more at $399.


Thus far, those are the only options, as no color band Apple Watch Sport models are being offered. You can, however, purchase an additional band in a variety of colors. Walmart is selling 16 different color bands for $49.00 each. It’s also selling the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable in a variety of lengths.


Even with Walmart’s entry into the game, you’d be better off right now shopping at Target or Best Buy. Best Buy is offering $100 off all Apple Watch models, and Target is peddling $100 gift cards with purchases.


Dropbox is shutting down its mailbox and carousel apps

Dropbox has just announced that it is shutting down its Mailbox and Carousel apps. The company plans to integrate key features from Carousel into the main Dropbox app.

In 2013, we acquired Mailbox because we believed in the way it was making mobile email better. In 2014, we launched Carousel to create a new way to experience and share photos. With both, we aspired to extend the simplicity of Dropbox to other parts of our users’ lives.
Building new products is about learning as much as it’s about making. It’s also about tough choices. Over the past few months, we’ve increased our team’s focus on collaboration and simplifying the way people work together. In light of that, we’ve made the difficult decision to shut down Carousel and Mailbox.
The Carousel and Mailbox teams have built products that are loved by many people and their work will continue to have an impact. We’ll be taking key features from Carousel back to the place where your photos live—in the Dropbox app. We’ll also be using what we’ve learned from Mailbox to build new ways to communicate and collaborate on Dropbox (you can see early signs of this focus with Paper).


Mailbox will be shut down on February 26th, 2016, and Carousel will be shut down on March 31st, 2016.

SWIFT-programming language is open source now 

Apple has just announced that its Swift programming language is now open source. 
The company has launched a new swift.org website which provides a blog, documentation, downloads, and other material to help developers with Swift.

Welcome to Swift.org
Swift is now open source!
We are excited by this new chapter in the story of Swift. After Apple unveiled the Swift programming language, it quickly became one of the fastest growing languages in history. Swift makes it easy to write software that is incredibly fast and safe by design. Now that Swift is open source, you can help make the best general purpose programming language available everywhere.
For students, learning Swift has been a great introduction to modern programming concepts and best practices. And because it is now open, their Swift skills will be able to be applied to an even broader range of platforms, from mobile devices to the desktop to the cloud.
Welcome to the Swift community. Together we are working to build a better programming language for everyone.

Apple has separated the code for the Swift project into several open-source repositories, all hosted on GitHub.
Compiler and Standard Library

● swift: The main Swift repository, which contains the source code for the Swift compiler, standard library, and SourceKit.

● swift-evolution: Documents related to the continued evolution of Swift, including goals for upcoming releases proposals for changes to and extensions of Swift.
Core Libraries

● swift-corelibs-foundation: The source code for Foundation, which provides common functionality for all applications.

● swift-corelibs-libdispatch: The source code for libdispatch, which provides concurrency primitives for working on multicore hardware.

● swift-corelibs-xctest: The source code for XCTest, which provides fundamental testing infrastructure for Swift apps and libraries.
Package Manager

● swift-package-manager: The source code for the Swift package manager.

● swift-llbuild: The source code for llbuild, a low-level build system used by the Swift package manager.
Cloned Repositories

Swift builds upon several other open-source projects, most notably the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure. Swift’s clones of the repositories of those open-source projects contain Swift-specific changes and are merged regularly from their upstream sources.
● swift-llvm: The source code for LLVM, with a handful of Swift-specific additions. Merged regularly from the LLVM sources at llvm.org.

● swift-clang: The source code for Clang, with a handful of Swift-specific additions. Merged regularly from the Clang sources at llvm.org.

● swift-lldb: The source code for the Swift-enabled version of LLDB, for debugging Swift programs. Merged regularly from the LLDB sources at llvm.org.

● swift-cmark: The source code for CommonMark, which is used in the Swift compiler.
