I really would like to try X-Plane on the iPhone but I’m holding out to see some sort of video of the gameplay. X-Plane is an amazing game on Mac or PC.
I got a 3G iPhone on Monday and have been messing with it.
Now I am running firmware v2.0.2.
MobileTerminal is finally usable and pretty feature rich. Visiting MobileTerminals website and reading the tips and tricks is a MUST so you know how to do Control-C, Tab, etc, etc. Click Here for the Tips and Tricks page
Tethering is working by using Nate True’s blog howto. Tethering means you can browse the Internet on your laptop by using the iPhone’s 3G network. (Apple and AT&T are considering offering this feature for $30 more per month) Click Here for Nate’s howto
VIM is installed for color editing of files through MobileTerminal
OpenSSH is installed for SSH server and client.
netatalk is installed and my phone is available via AFP on Bonjour. This means I can drag files to and from my iPhone as if it were a shared folder on a Mac.

A few days ago I launched the Asterisk Voicemail for iPhone page. This received a lot of press in the Asterisk community and blogs. My site shot up to #1 for the search term “Asterisk Voicemail iPhone”.
Now a few days later and my site is not even in any search results for those terms “Asterisk Voicemail iPhone”. I’m assuming that Google has some sort of blacklisting (temporary I assume) that I have fallen into. The page is not completely blacklisted, as it still shows up for search term “chris carey”.
The funny thing is that the same exact behavior has happened on altavista.com, yahoo.com, and msn.com. How could I disappear from all four of these search engines at the same time? It appears these other three have mimicked or stolen the google algorithm so successfully that all their results are exactly the same.
2 hours after posting this, my results return to #1 in Google. NEVERMIND! 🙂
In previous posts, I’ve stated how unstable (but awesome) ZiPhone is. Well, the development cycle has slowed down and 2.4 is the best and most stable version so far. Grab it from here
After installing 1.1.3 and all that goodness, everyone I’ve talked to has the error when downloading some packages from Installer. This is due to Conceited software moving a repository.
You need to install Community Sources 2.5 or newer to fix this. However, you may not be able to because you are getting the same error when trying to install Community Sources. Just go to Sources, remove Conceited, refresh, Clear the Installer Queue, then re-install Community Sources. voila!
The software is called ZiPhone and it is the first true jailbreak for 1.1.3. It is now safe to upgrade to 1.1.3
I upgraded to 1.1.3 last night and it’s working great!
Be careful though, ZiPhone is buggy!!
ZiPhone 2.0 has a bug that will get your phone stuck at the bootloader
ZiPhone 2.1 has a bug that will crash your phone if you delete the ZiPhone blog WebClip
ZiPhone 2.2 has a bug that the ZiPhone-Gui does not work (wrong files included in the package)
Known 1.1.3 Jailbreak Issues:
- Ringtones stop working
