iPhone 4, iOS 4.0 jailbreak

If you thought using the last jailbreak for the iPhone was easy, Spirit, get ready for the new one. Comex, along with the rest of the iPhone Dev Team have launched www.jailbreakme.com, a site that allows you to jailbreak the iPhone from within the phone’s browser. That’s right without any cables, connecting to a computer or typing lines of code.

iPhone 4, iOS 4 jailbreak

Just go to www.jailbreakme.com on your iPhone and swipe the “slide to jailbreak” button and the rest is done for you within minutes! You don’t even have to reboot the phone. I don’t think we will ever see a jailbreak as good or as easy as this again. The iPhone Dev Team really have outdone themselves this time.

Feel free to drop those boys a donation if your feeling the love.

Apple website slow. Solution/fix found

Over the last few weeks I have been visiting the Apple website as I have been considering buy the new iPhone 4 when it is release later this week. After many attempts I have noticed that loading  most pages on the Apple website load extremely slow, to the point where it doesn’t ever finish loading the page.

After investigating this issue I discovered that if I turned off my anti virus, Kaspersky Internet Security 2010, the site would run fine. After taking my questions to Google I found it has to do with Apple using third parties to host images and some of those third party solutions use some incorrect code. A Kaspersky representative had this to say about the issue on the Kaspersky forums:

We have analyzed problem with apple.com WEB-resources.
Apple use third part CDN for content delivery.

It’s Akamai Accelerated Networks
(http://www.akamai.com/html/customers/customer_list.html)

Some Akamai’s proxy servers roughly violate the http-standard for output content.
Substantially for the USA customers.

Appropriated fixes have been made and will be accessible in the next path/CF for KAV/KIS 2011

It looks like updates will be pushed out soon to fix this problem but in the meantime you can fix it yourself by adding apple.com to your list of exceptions.
