Jailbreaking your iDevice, although it’s considered illegal and stuff, can sometimes be very useful since you’re iDevice becomes more customizable. Apple wants you to do things their way, providing limitations for everything. Jailbreaking lets your iDevice out the Jail and exposes it to a ton of extra and awesome feature. Recently the Celeste App was released, providing the long awaited Bluetooth sharing functionality with everyone.

Here’s another app that brings a really useful functionality to your iOS device. It’s called FlipOver and it brings that HTC like functionality, which lets you mute or lock your idevice when you turn it over. As soon as you turn it back over, your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad will un-mute and unlock automatically.

And the procedure isn’t hard either, you don’t have to add any repo or anything and there won’t be any extra icons on your homescreen. All you have to do is open Cydia and then go to the search box and type in FlipOver.

Once installed, after paying $0.99, go to the settings folder and enable the only two options Mute or Lock under the FlipOver tab. You can see how it’s done in the video after the break. You’ll also get to adjust the sensitivity and the refresh rates to tell your iDevice at what angle to mute/lock it.

Unofficial Compact Flash Card reader Comes to iPad

When iPad 2 was announced, we expected it to come with card reader. Though this is something which never happened and we expecting it be released in next version iPad [iPad 3]. For now those who are looking to get CF card reader for your iPad 2, here is a good news for you:

3 in 1 camera connection kit which was announced on Micgadget is now reported to work with iPad first generation and iPad 2. Remember it’s a 3rd party accessory for your iPad.

Here is a video demo of this 3 in 1 Camera connection kit working with an iPad:

You can read more about this iPad CF reader on official page and you can purchase it from its official store for $29.90. The only sad part is this accessories doesn’t work with USB on your iPad because it emits less USB power and this device needs power of more than 20mA. This is something sad and in future, I would love to see a USB connector for iPad. Life will be so easy when we can connect USB device ( Harddisk or USB pen drive) with an iPad and extend iPad storage.

Do share your thought about this accessory and as pitched by MIC, this is targeted for professional photographer but I can see that even any normal user who using any Gadget using CF card, might like to try his hands on it.

3 Ways to Recover Lost iPhone Passcode

When ever we talk about safety, we always suggest that you should have a strong password. Even for mobile phone, it’s good to have a passcode so that no one but you, can access your phone data.  Though It’s very much possible that someday you can’t seem to remember the password of your iPhone and you are locked out. With our usual email, social network logins you simply click “Forgot my Password” and follow through the steps to restoring access to your account. But what do you do when you have set a “Restrictions Passcode” on your phone a few months ago when you bought your phone and now no matter what you do, you can’t seem to remember what is the passcode you had set earlier..

restrictions passcode

For many of us smart phones are a very integral part of our daily lives. Losing your passcode of your iPhone might seem like the end of the world. Don’t break your head against the wall now because the steps to restoring access to your account are quite simple. You have a couple of solutions to consider and we have compiled these ‘solutions’ for you.

password

Solution 1

You can restore your iPhone as a new device through iTunes. But you won’t be able to restore it from a previous backup because the lost password would be saved in the backup.

Solution 2

The second option is to restore your phone using the Mac OS X Tool – iPhone/iPod Touch Backup Extractor located here!

Step 1: Download iPhone Backup Extractor, open it and let it extract itself. You will then want to click ‘Read Backups’. A list of your previous backups should now populate. Just select the backup that you want to extract the passcode from.

Step 2: You should now be looking at a list of apps that have been backed up. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click ‘iOS Files’, and then ‘Extract’. I recommend extracting it to your desktop so you can find it easily.

Step 3: Extraction will take a minute. Once completed, open the folder it created called ‘iOS Files’. Look for the file named ‘com.apple.springboard.plist’, and open it up.

Step 4: As you scroll down this list of properties, you should see a key titled ‘SBParentalControlsPin’ and to the right of it a value. This is what your Passcode is, enter it in your iDevice, and thank Simon Blog for sharing this little tidbit with us.

Jailbroken Users Note

You can also locate your lost iPhone passcode via SSH. All you have to do is navigate to ‘var/mobile/Library/Preferences’.

Have you ever got into such situation where you have lost your iPhone passcode? If not, you are lucky but you should bookmark this post for saving yourself in such situation.
