Jailbreak iOS 8.4? Why And How to Untethered Jailbreak iOS 8.4
Most people would never consider jailbreaking one of their Apple products. They might view it as illegal, or “hacker activity” and won’t have anything to do with it. And they would be HALF correct.
As it turns out, it is NOT illegal to jailbreak and iPhone, iPod, iPad, or even an Apple TV. But it will void the warranty. And it isn’t even a difficult or dangerous thing to do. You won’t ruin your device, it has a very minimal effect on battery life, and is easy as plugging your device into your computer and hitting a few buttons. Because of the way Apple designed these products, if there is ANY trouble it is a simple matter to reset and restore the device. You don’t lose your apps, your music, your videos, your pictures. You even have access to the App store.
So what are the downsides? Well, you can’t send the unit back to Apple for repairs. You lose maybe about 5% of battery life. You have to learn a new way of installing software. And there may be some issues with updating applications through the App store.
Meanwhile you can add pictures to the background (springboard), rather than sticking with the plain black. You can add multitasking to ANY of the “i” devices, something that those naughty hackers have had available on jailbroken units for quite a while, long before it was introduced on the iPad. The list goes on and on.
Be sure you do your research before you make a decision as to whether to jailbreak. Understand that it is easy to revert to a “regular” device as long as you have a backup before starting the process. If you do decide to give it a try, there are LOTS of links on the web to tell you how.
There are several ways of doing this, but I prefer greenpois0n.
The program will make the unit do all kinds of weird things. When it restarts, watch the Apple logo; it will slowly evolve. When it is finished, you have a jailbroken device.
Next step? Look for the green Loader app and run it. Use it to install Cydia.
Did you run into trouble? The text file that came with GreenPoison will give you a couple links and an IRC chatroom to visit. Trust me, no matter what problem you’re having, someone else has already solved it.
With a jailbroken device, there reall is an app for almost ANYTHING you want to do. Developers don’t need to go through the process of submitting apps to Apple, then having them possibly reject them, or force them to charge for it. Suddenly the world opens up.
Realize, however, that I am not condoning downloading and installing cracked or pirated apps. These are applications that have been downloaded, then had their security compromised so they can be installed on any i-device without paying. There are a ton of them out there, probably including all of the apps you may have purchased, and basically all free for the taking. Just remember that the developer doesn’t get a single penny if you choose do download a cracked app. Those pennies help keep them in business, and keep them motivated to update the app with new features. It also motivates them to write more apps.
Have you lost data on your Mac due to disk corruption or other disk problems? Did you not know how to recover it and found that recovery programs were few, and difficult to use? Disk Doctors offers a solution for Mac HFS+ and HFSX data recovery needs. Will Mac Data Recovery recover your data?
Mac OS X users can suffer from disk problems just like users of other operating systems. File systems, no matter how resilient, have limits and data is subject to loss due to human error no matter which OS you prefer. So what options do Mac users have when their files or folders are lost, corrupted, or a disk is wiped or unmountable? One option for recovery is offered by Disk Doctors. Disk Doctors Mac Data Recovery Software supports data recovery on Mac OS X 10.4 and above, on the HFS+ and HFSX file systems. How good is it? Let’s find out:
Disk Doctors Mac Data Recovery Software presents a user interface similar to the Finder, with the capability to read data directly from a disk even when there are severe disk problems. The software can recover data in many instances, including when: a volume is reformatted, repartitioned, or not able to be mounted, when files or folders are deleted, when the partition map or catalog file is corrupted, when the drive has been initialized, and when disk verify and repair has failed. Mac Data Recovery runs on Intel or Power PC based Apple Macintoshes.
Mac Data Recovery can even work to recover files from a Mac boot disk or system drive by installing the software on another Mac, and connecting the two machines together via Firewire and attaching the disk to recover using Target Disc Mode.
Installation is straightforward, and as simple as any other program. On running the program you find that selecting a drive and viewing files is just as simple and intuitive as the Finder. The process is as simple as selecting a physical drive, selecting a volume for recovery, and then searching or scanning for files and then preview or save files found or recovered.
You need a good drive and volume separate from the one you are recovering data from to install the software and save recovered files to–writing to the same drive is unsafe and can destroy data permanently. The software works in read only mode on corrupted drives, and does not attempt to repair or modify the corruption, it just reads directly from the disk to retrieve the data.
If you are not sure if Mac Data Recovery will work or is right for you, you can download and use the demo to see if the files, folders, volume, drive and the data you want can be recovered.
Mac Data Recovery lists for $179. While not the least expensive recovery software out there, what price can you place on the ability to recovery your precious files? Other options are similar in cost–but are they as comprehensive and effective? Others are more expensive if you are a business or have many computers.
Disk Doctors offers numerous other products including recovery software for Windows, Linux, Solaris, and email recovery software for Outlook and Outlook Express. They also provide special tools for photo and music media recovery, as well as system utilities and data security programs. Disk Doctors brings expertise and cross-platform data recovery experience to the Mac user with Mac Data Recovery.
