iOS Recovery Mode Can Be Enabled Wirelessly in iOS 5.0b2




Recovery Mode can reportedly be initiated wirelessly via RecBoot in iOS 5.0b2, says 9to5Mac.

You not only can sync your media wirelessly in iOS 5, but it appears you can enter Recovery Mode using 'RecBoot, Etc' from the Mac.

Unfortunately, to perform a jailbreak one must place their iDevice into DFU mode so its unlikely that the Dev Team will be able to use this to create a wireless jailbreak tool.

AirServer Turns Your iDevice Into an AirPlay Receiver




AirServer for iOS turns your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into an AirPlay receiver.

AirServer for iOS is the first application that transforms your iOS device into an AirTunes and AirPlay receiver. It's like having an AirPort Express and Apple TV in the palm of your hand, because it lets you stream audio, videos, photos, and slide shows from your Mac to your iOS device or between iOS devices.

You can purchase AirPlay for iOS from the Big Boss Cydia repository for $4.99.

Geohot is Now Working For Facebook




Facebook has hired Geohot, the popular hacker behind the iPhone and Sony Playstation jailbreaks, reports TechUnwrapped.

Joshua Hill (P0sixninja) recently mentioned in an interview that Geohot is trying to avoid the limelight after his legal battle with Sony and is concentrating on his day job at Facebook.

Gabe Rivera of Techmeme reports that Geohot started at Facebook in May and announced it on his Facebook account on June 17th. His last wall post says, "Facebook is really an amazing place to work...first hackathon over."

We wish Geohot the best of luck at Facebook but also hope he has some time left to contribute to the iPhone community.
