Han Solo In Carbonite iPhone Case

March 29, 2012 2 comments

It’s things like these that make me so happy I decided to get an iPhone. I am seriously considering buying this. Totally worth the fifteen bucks.



This seems like a pretty cool conversation starter as well. “What an interesting phone case. What is it?” “Oh nothing fancy just Han Solo frozen in freaking carbonite!” And then of course the girl will probably walk away from me thinking I’m lame, but it would totally get me some digits at Comic-Con! Right? Right?

Upgrade to iOS 5 Now

October 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Apple isn’t officially releasing iOS 5 until October 12 but you can upgrade your iDevice now. Apple released the Gold Master version of the OS to developers. This version is not much different than what will be officially released. Because of this, even non-developers can dowload the software, restore and have iOS 5 now.

Make a Backup

First off, make a backup. The process of restoring will wipe your device anyway. It’s also good to have a backup in the rare case that something goes wrong. A backup can be made by syncing your iDevice or right clicking it in the iTunes sidebar and selecting Back Up.

Download the Appropriate Software

Download the software depending on your device. Do NOT forget to download iTunes Beta 7. The process won’t work with any other version of iTunes.

Download iOS 5 GM for iPhone 4 (GSM)
Download iOS 5 GM for iPhone 4 (CDMA)
Download iOS 5 GM for iPhone 3GS
Download iOS 5 GM for iPad 2 (Wi-Fi)
Download iOS 5 GM for iPad Wi-Fi + 3G (GSM)
Download iOS 5 GM for iPad Wi-Fi + 3G (CDMA)
Download iOS 5 GM for iPad 1
Download iOS 5 GM for iPod touch 4G
Download iOS 5 GM for iPod touch 3G

Download iTunes 10 Beta 7

If you are a Windows user, you will need a program like 7-zip in order to unzip the dmg file. Then unzip the hfs file called 2. The IPSW file will be in there.

Restore in iTunes

Next, plug in your device. It should still be plugged in from making a back up. Go to the main settings for device and you will see a button that says Restore. Hold down Option on a Mac or Shift on a PC and click the Restore button. Navigate to the folder where the IPSW file is located and select the file.

The installation process will begin. After that, you’ll be walked through iOS 5’s setup. From there, you can restore your backup you made earlier. Keep in mind that iOS 5 is jailbreakable through Redsnow . It is a tethered jailbreak meaning if you reboot the device you will need to jailbreak again.

Steve Jobs Dies

October 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, has passed away today at the age of 56. A true visionary of our time, Steve pioneered the concept of personal computer and navigating them with the aid of a mouse. Steve’s death was not unexpected. He had battled cancer for years. Earlier this year, he took a medical leave from Apple in January and stepped down as CEO in August. Jobs was also the owner of Pixar, the studios behind such classics as Toy Story and A Bug’s Life. He introduced the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. He is survived by his wife, Laurene, and four children. He was the Leonardo Da Vinci of our time and he will be missed. RIP 1955-2011
