The 10 minutes Ultimatum

What? Why? How? Answers to these questions, AND MORE, in Gizmodo's ultimate jailbreaking guide for iPhones, iPods and iPads.

Jailbreaking is...

...freedom for iOS users, giving them a way to break free from Apple's restrictive App Store ecosystem, install whatever software they want, and use their phones however they please. Technically, each jailbreak is a hack; an exploitation of some flaw in the devices' operating systems, used to install unauthorized software. This software generally includes some kind of alternative App Store, called either Cydia or Rock.

Jailbreaking is openly discouraged by Apple, who updates various jailbreak exploits out of existence as fast as hackers can find them, but even after three years of pressure from Jobs and Co., the jailbreak scene is still as lively as ever.

...and worth trying because...

...the jailbreak app stores are packed full of previously forbidden goodness. This ranges from replacement text message apps and device skins to Wi-Fi tethering apps and access to hidden device settings. The best case to be made for jailbreaking is a showcase of the apps it lets you download.

...and is easy to install on any iOS device

There are a few different options for jailbreaking iOS devices, some more involved than others, but at this point, and for current software versions LimeRa1n is the best choice. It works the same way on both Windows and Mac, works for nearly all iDevices (though some 2G iPhone owners have problems), and gets the job done quickly.

The Ultimate Jailbreaking Guide

• An iOS device running version 3.2.2 (iPad) or 4.1 (iPhone and iPod Touch)
• A computer with which your iDevice has been paired via sync
• LimeRa1n software from here (an .EXE for Windows users, and a .APP file for Mac users, which must be extracted from a .ZIP)
• A recent iTunes backup of your device, since it will need to be restored after jailbreaking
• About 10 minutes, max


1. Connect your iDevice to your computer, and wait until it is recognized by the operating system or iTunes
2. Open the LimeRa1n app
3. Click "make it ra1n"

4. Your device will enter recovery mode. One it's done, you will be prompted to manually put the device in DFU mode by pressing and holding your home and power buttons.
5. After about 10 or 15 seconds you'll need to release the power button, but continue holding the home button. You will be prompted by the installer to perform this step, so keep a close eye on it.
6. The device will enter DFU mode, at which point you can let go of the home button. The installer takes care of the rest.

When the phone reboots you will see a new startup screen, and find a limera1n app on your homescreen. Run it to install Cydia—then from there, whatever the hell you want.

Ahhh this is fun. I'm writing a blog via my iPhone as I am laying comfortly in my bed.

So, what tomorrow would bring? Is it going to be cold and snowy? Or it will be clear as predicted?

Ohhh..I hate Sunday night. Thinking about how the time passes so quickly until I have to force myself to sleep or I'd wake up grumpy, cranky and old.

I hate forcing myself. I hate Sunday night. Tomorrow.. Let it be great.

In life, every path leads somewhere and we are all on a path of some kind. So, the important question here is this – do you know where your path is leading you?


TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

In many ways life is like any other journey and the path we choose is important. If you are going to take subway/LRT/Metro from your place to city center, there are many number of ways to get there. You get to choose the path that’s right for you.


Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

Maybe you’ll choose the less busy route or maybe a scenic route because you want to relax and enjoy the trip. In this case it’s okay if it takes longer, getting there fast is not your main concern. But what if you are on a tighter schedule? Then you might decide to take the most direct route. It’s not as pretty as the scenic route, but it will get you there a lot faster.

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I, myself has considered to take different paths in life but do I have  a map to guide myself on its journey? My parents played a major role in the decision I’ve made and they never stop giving me moral support in whichever field  I choose.  I remember being so excited about becoming a fire-fighter just because I like to play with water. Then they framed some news articles about it and put it in my room. Later I decided to become an astronaut because I like to fly in a rocket and see the stars. Then they bought me reference books about the stars and planets.


One day when I was walking home, a man in a car stopped and offered me a ride. Well, he looked familiar and I didn’t hesitated to agree. Turned out he was one of the executives of MAS and while in the car he said that he would want me to join MAS as a steward and obviously I turned down the offer. But again, what if? Maybe I’d turned out to be a singer or actor like Anuar Zain. hehehe

Finally, here I am in a medical school devoting myself to save lives.

Each path will provide its own unique variety of experiences while still leading to the same destination. Some will be more enjoyable than others. So, the quality of the journey entitled to just as much consideration as the destination.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

If you run into roadblocks find a way around or over them and keep moving. If your path doesn’t seem to be leading where you want to go then choose a different path. Life is a journey and there is absolutely no reason to spend it going around in circles.
