Google Latitude Adds Support for iPhone 3G, Improves Battery Usage




Google Latitude for iOS has been updated with support for the iPhone 3G and improves battery usage.

With Google Latitude, see where your friends are right now. Latitude lets you stay in touch with your friends and family by making it easy to share where you are and see each other on a map.

With Latitude, you can:
* See your friends on a map – find out who’s nearby and meet up.
* Share your location continuously with whomever you choose – help friends and family stay in touch with you, even when you can’t take out your phone.
* Control your privacy – share only city-level location, hide your location, or turn off background updating at any time.

What's New In This Version:
* Improved battery usage
* Support for iPhone 3G (note that background location reporting is not supported by the hardware)
* Fixed bug where Maps button didn't appear
* Location Services icon will no longer appear when not logged in

You can download Google Latitude from the App Store for free.

Apple sales explode in China




Interesting that at two quarters ago Apple was under $2B in revenue in China. 180 days later, they’ve almost tripled their revenue to $5B. They are going to have to come up with a better name than hockey stick to describe this uptick.

Anyone think that iPhone 4 & jailbreaking have anything to do with it???

Saurik Revamps Cydia Theme Center, Cydia 1.1 Coming Soon




Saurik has released a revamped Theme Center for Cydia in coordination with MacCiti and implemented using the new Cydia 'whole package index'.

As I am not in charge of updating this area of Cydia (MacCiti/ModMyi are), users can actually expect to see new content on a biweekly (every two weeks, not twice a week) schedule. ;P

Right now, you will find a selection of themes from the top selling vendors in Cydia, as well as themes selected by the employees of MacCiti and ModMyi.

Currently, all nominations for additional Feature Themes, regardless of the repository they are hosted in, must be sent to either MacCiti or ModMyi.

However, Cydia 1.1, whose release is imminent, provides the additional platform hooks required to allow nominations directly from users to us.

We'll let you know when the new version is available.

iPhone Dev-Team Ports Monte Untether Back to iOS 4.1 SHSH Blobs




The iPhone Dev-Team has successfully ported their Monte untether back to the iOS 4.1 kernel.

Previously to untether your jailbreak using Monte you needed to have the iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs saved which was developer only. Now you will only need your iOS 4.1 SHSH blobs. The team is also working on porting Monte forward to iOS 4.3...

Ported Monte back to 4.1 kernel (SHSH blobs). Next step: porting it forward to 4.3beta!

MuscleNerd notes that the beauty of Monte is it doesn't expose any new exploits :) It makes the entire "wait until next FW" concern moot. Think of Monte as a "green" jailbreak. It recycles (for example) 4.1's exact JB exploit on 4.2.1 :) Waste no exploits.

We'll let you know when RedSn0w is updated with the new capabilities.

The Chronic Dev-Team is also packaging up an untether for iOS 4.2.1 that will not require SHSH Blobs.

Stay tuned for more information.
