Apple iOS 5 launches October 12‎ and after 5 days – October 12, I have been able to Jailbreak and unlock my iPhone 3GS with Baseband to 6.15.00 with all  iOS 5 and iCloud service 🙂

iPhone 3GS with iOS 5 jailbreak and unlock is now possible.

Apple servers were slammed as users attempted to download updates to iTunes, Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iOS 5 that contain many security fixes.

Coinciding with the launch of the new iCloud service, Apple has rolled out massive updates fixing scores of security vulnerabilities in Mac OS X, iOS and related software.

The latest mobile operating system iOS 5 went live Oct. 12 which requires the latest version of iTunes to install. Apple released a new version of its iTunes software for Windows on Oct. 11. If those two major upgrades weren’t enough, Apple also updated the Mac OS X Lion operating system with 10.7.2. A security update for Snow Leopard users, 10.6, is also available.

Users trying to access so many updates so close together are putting a strain on Apple servers, resulting in long download times and strange error messages when trying to install, according to irate users on Twitter and Apple support forums.

The upgrades are necessary for users interested in using iCloud to synchronize music, photos, documents and other files across their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and the Mac desktop. The latest iTunes, version 10.5, is necessary to upgrade to newer models of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch to iOS 5. Both the Mac and Windows versions of iTunes have all the features necessary to take advantage of iCloud support, wireless synchronization and iOS 5.

The iTunes 10.5 for Windows update patched 79 security vulnerabilities in a slew of components, including WebKit, ColorSync, CoreFoundation, CoreAudio, CoreMedia and ImageIO, according to Apple’s advisory. WebKit alone accounted for 73 bugs that Apple fixed in this version of iTunes. The framework is a core part of iTunes and the Safari Web browser and all but one of them were memory corruption vulnerabilities. Several of the bugs, if exploited, could have resulted in an attacker remotely executing code on the affected Mac. Other WebKit issues would have resulted in denial-of-service conditions or crashed iTunes, according to Apple.

Apple fixed the security issues in iTunes only in the Windows version, and rolled the fixes in to the OS X updates for Mac users.

In the Mac OS X 10.7.2 update and the update for 10.6 (Snow Leopard), Apple fixed 75 known vulnerabilities in the operating system, Chester Wisniewski, senior security advisor at Sophos, told eWEEK. Most could lead to arbitrary code execution while others could result in denial of service or escalation of privileges, Wisniewski said.

Apple addressed “quite a few important security issues,” including the vulnerabilities with Open Directory that had been introduced this summer with the release of Lion, the latest Mac OS X operating system. The various flaws in Open Directory allowed people to read other users’ password hashes, change passwords without having to know the old password, and logging into the system without a password, according to Wisniewski. The OS X update also fixed how Web cookies are stored and handled so that malicious sites could no longer read information stored on them.

Apple also released a new version of the Safari Web browser for Lion and Snow Leopard. Wisniewski estimated there were approximately another 70 security flaws fixed in the browser update.

Apple also removed the DigiNotar certificates from its mobile devices in iOS 5. While the company had removed the embattled certificate authority from the desktop last month after reports emerged of attackers compromising DigiNotar to issue fraudulent SSL certificates for major Websites, mobile devices running Safari had remained unprotected.

There is already a jailbreak available for iOS5. At the moment, only a tethered jailbreak exists for iOS 5 running on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad and iPod Touch. A tethered jailbreak means the user has to connect the mobile device to the computer to run the code. An untethered jailbreak is expected shortly, according to rumors.

Developers get iOS 5 gold master

This probably shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, given that iOS 5 is arriving in consumers’ hands next week, but Apple today gave developers a final copy of the software they can use to fine-tune their apps for compatibility.

Apple posted the gold master of the software on its developer site following this morning’s announcements. Worth noting is that existing developers cannot install it as an over-the-air update, and they must use one of the recent developer betas of iTunes from the past two months.

The release today comes just after the date range predicted by Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo last month told AppleInsider and MacRumors that Apple should be delivering a final version of the software between September 23 and 30.

As a quick recap, iOS 5 has been in a public beta for developers since June, seeing a total of seven releases in that time:

• iOS 5 beta 1 on 6/6
• iOS 5 beta 2 on 6/24
• iOS 5 beta 3 on 7/11
• iOS 5 beta 4 on 7/22
• iOS 5 beta 5 on 8/6
• iOS 5 beta 6 on 8/19
• iOS 5 beta 7 on 8/31

Users get the software, which brings an overhauled notification system, iMessage, iCloud integration, and more, on October 12.

iOS 5 : Apple updates iOS 5 developer tools

Apple surprised the development community over the weekend by making a rare Sunday update to the beta version of its next iPhone/iPad software.

The release of iOS 5 beta 5 happened yesterday, allowing die-hard Apple developers to wrap up their weekend with a couple new toys to play with.

Actually, though, the update is not a huge one. For the most part it is just a stability patch, fixing some issues and making sure things continue to run smoothly as new features are rolled out.

One enhancement is a Hearing Aid mode, which allows those who need to use a hearing aid in everyday life to get as much out of their iPhone or iPad as possible.

The new iOS firmware, version 5, was first unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Since then, it has been updated four times.

There are a few major changes, including a brand new messaging platform akin to Blackberry Messenger, ties to Apple’s nascent cloud storage service, and a complete reworking of the software’s notifcation system.

The latest version of iOS software will no doubt come with the launch of the next iPhone, which is expected to happen either next month or in October. There have been conflicting back-and-forth reports on exactly when that release date will be.

It’s also unclear whether the next device will be called the iPhone 5, or if it will continue to carry the ‘4’ tag and use a name like the iPhone 4S or potentially the iPhone 4G.

iOS 5 Beta 5 Released to Developers

Apple reviewers are already sounding off about features and functionality in the fifth beta version of iOS 5 that was released to developers this weekend.

Credit: 9to5MacApple’s iOS 5, which is tied to the upcoming iCloud service, debuted at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

MacRumors says the latest update includes fixes but no major new features.

But CNET’s Edward Moyer says the release includes a Hearing Aid Mode designed to improve compatibility between iOS devices and hearing aids.

And 9to5Mac discovered that the new software includes the speech recognition feature believed to be called Apple “Assistant,” which will combine on-device and cloud processing to recognize natural-speech instructions and be able to use various data sources to present the best set of results.

There are some hiccups, however.

“The functionality is also not yet active, perhaps because Apple is yet to secure the final deal believed to be in negotiation with Nuance, and as such the server-side processing is unlikely to be ready. Sources have suggested that Assistant support is only initially intended for the smaller iOS devices, iPhone and iPod touch, though iPad support is a possibility,” writes SlashGear’s Chris Davies.

There are plenty of places to turn to learn about the pros and cons of iOS 5.

PCWorld posted a popular story titled “Five Ways Apple Rips Off Android with iOS 5” and PCWorld’s Tony Bradley just finished a “30 Days With the iPad” series in which he looked at what iOS 5 and iCloud bring to the table and the impact they might have on the capabilities of the iPad as a PC replacement.

Developers can download iOS 5 beta 5 from Apple. To see the full change log for iOS 5 Beta 5, visit BGR.
