Still thinking whether to upgrade to iOS 4.0.2 with no chance of jailbreaking at the moment? The iPhone Dev guys have a solution!
While the iOS 4.0.2 was designed to fix the recent PDF Exploit, now there’s an app that does just that for jailbroken phones. It is an app called PDF Patch which can be downloaded from Cydia. What’s interesting is that the recent 4.0.2 patch is only applicable for selected devices which leaves older phones unprotected.
So those with jailbroken iOS 4.0.1, what are you waiting for? Read more here.
To download, get started here. The download link for the APK file will be emailed to you after registration.
The current version is 0.9.1 and Tweetdeck welcomes your feedback at their forum for improvements. They are hoping to get version 1.0 up on the Android market as soon as possible and they need your valuable feedback.

At launch about a month a got the Wildfire was sold outright with no plans from any telco but we were told by HTC PR that Maxis is will be offering a bundling package very soon, and here it is.
We predicted that with a 12 months package the Wildfire will cost around RM700 and it looks like we were spot on with that one. With a 12 month contract on Maxis, the HTC Wildfire can be your for RM699. You can go as low as RM549 with the Wildfire if you’re willing to put up with a 24 months contact on Maxis.
There’s currently a promotion on HTC devices with Maxis at the moment. Running from 13 to 17 August, with every purchase of the Wildfire you’ll get a free car kit worth RM200 and with every purchase of the HTC Desire you get a free casing worth RM80. Only valid for purchases made at the Maxis KLCC roadshow.
Speaking of 24 months, Maxis has included this option to subscribe for 18 months and 24 months. This is a new bundling across all the Android devices in Maxis’ stables. Our favourite Samsung Galaxy S is a mouth watering RM1,499 pm 24 months contract and the pretty good HTC Desire is RM1,349 on 24 months. You can check out the new pricing for the device here but if you’re too lazy, check out the breakdown below.
To the Android aficionados out there the Google Gesture Search app might not be a new thing but to the n00bs, we can’t tell you enough how awesome this app is. Gesture Search lets you search by writing out characters on the touchscreen of your device. It’s really useful when you’re searching for something while driving (though we do not recommend this).
Google has just released a new version of Gesture Search (v.1.2) and added a new nifty motion gesture feature. With motion gesture, all you need to do is just “double flip” your phone to activate Gesture Search. This eliminates the need to activate Gesture Search from a home screen shortcut. You can turn the feature on or adjust its sensitivity in Settings.
Google has also sorted out some bugs and improved usability by adding accessibility support. Though Google is quick to point out that Gesture Search is still in its early stages and will still be looking at improving the app in future releases.
Google Gesture Search is available for Android 1.6 and above. Just scan the QR with your Android phone below to download. Or you can search for it in the Android Market. And of you’re wondering, no there’s no iPhone app for this.
If you don’t know what a double flip is, head on over to after the jump to see a demo video.
Ifixit has torn down the new Motorola Droid 2 into pieces, giving us the opportunity to see what’s inside. Disassembling the Droid 2 is reported to be similar to the original Droid.
Despite the new enhancements on the internals, the Droid 2 uses the same 1390mAh battery as its predecessor. Head on to Ifixit and let the photos do the talking.

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 4.0.2 which thwarts any chances of jailbreaking via Safari. Just a day after the new update, Redsn0w has already jailbroken it! Before you get excited, this jailbreak is only for the iPhone 3G. That’s right, 3G version only so 3GS and iPhone 4 users will not be able to jailbreak yet.
This redsn0w’s jailbreak is a bit more complicated as it requires you to download some utilities and firmwares to be flashed onto your device. Head to redmond pie on instructions to download.
