iOS 7.1 update available

Recommended Posts

Don't get your hopes up for an iOS 7.1 jailbreak. Pod2G tweeted saying thay the evad3rs won't be working to make a 7.1 jailbreak. He said they probably won't work colelctively on it again until 8 comes out.

However, pod2G said that if he is ever bored and wants to put the time and effort into a 7.1 jailbreak, he said that he has some ideas of how to make it possible. Either way, I wouldn't hope too much for it.

I have no problem waiting till they jailbreak ios8. I finally upgraded from ios6 last week and there is no way I'm losing my wifi tether or movie box app!

Is it worth it to Jailbreak?

Maybe not for my iPhone 5S because I can't put a different PRL on it, but my iPhone 5 I can jailbreak and put a custom PRL to prioritize 1x800 voice in hopes that it stops the problems for my friend. Warranty runs out today, and Apple wouldn't do anything for me.

Please do not reference that kind of thing on this site. We do not endorse such a thing on this site.

 

Thank you,

He might have tethering in his plan and just prefer one of the alternative solutions to the stock tethering capabilities. I used to have it with att( I got a gig of free tethering after a rep In store flipped shit for no reason and I complained), but I preferred one of the alternatives because it let you control broadcast range(useful for public places), granted I think its highly unlikely but its possible.

Oh and PS I'm pretty sure the movie box app shouldn't be mentioned either (if it's the one I've heard of its a piracy app).

I've never heard of that app before.

 

The biggest reason I want to keep my jailbreak is Signal 2, but I suppose I could live without it. I just wish Apple would open up the API's so Signal 2 could make it to the mainstream App Store.

Enjoy the wait, they only finally overhauled the OS because of all the jailbreak tweaks and improvements(and the fact that the number of iOS users who were jailbreaking kept climbing rapidly). If they shut down jailbreaking where will they get their ideas to innovate for ios8/9:P?

If its the same as it was when I was an iOS user last(6.1), then its a repository app to download movies. Sort of a seedy filesharing website in an app. Granted there are so many apps/tweaks in Cydia I could very easily be mistaking it for something else.

Have you tried installing it anyways, or checking Google? Sometimes things are compatible anyways.

Has anyone noticed better reception or 800 MHz connections with 7.1? I'm wondering whether the update modified the radio firmware or otherwise did something so we can use the 800 bandwidth (though maybe we won't know until there is also a prl update).

iOS 7.0.4 Signal 2 works fine on it.

iPhone 5 & 5S had access to the 1x800 signals all the time, but are limited to only in locations where PCS voice isn't available. The PRL scan prioritizes it that way. But frankly, I'd rather see it the other way around to keep voice signal indoors better than a -95dBm.

ok - maybe a dumb question - but how did you actually get a copy?  I don't see any way to have Cydia install it.  I looked for a way to force the install per kojitsari's suggestion but don't see that option...

 

Thanks,

Marc

Do you have the proper repo that hosts it?

The only way I know how to get it on iOS 7 is by using a hacked repo. Since it's a paid app, Cydia won't let you pay for an app that isn't iOS 7 compatible, but a hacked repo will. I won't tell you how since I don't support hacked repos, I just really wanted to see what the app was about since it's our half-assed version of signal check and fully intended to pay for it once it became iOS 7 compatible.

Signal 2 is on the ModMyi repo. It's a standard repo in Cydia.

And yes, it does install despite not being supported on iOS 7.0.4

I doubt its half-assed, considering planet being made it... I doubt its as good as signalcheck but its still a useful app.

Quick Google search turned up it being updated for iOS 7 on modmyi repo(a default repo for Cydia).

Josh, it looks like you've paid for this app in the past, which is probably why you can install it. The payment system in cydia doesn't allow you to buy incompatible apps.

When I was jailbroken a month ago, I couldn't download it without a hacked repo. I even emailed the dev and asked about an updated version that I could buy. I never received a response.

ModMyi officially lists it as iOS 7.1 compatible on their website 0.o

Yes, I bought the original Signal way back when, and when v2 came out, I was able to download it immediately.

That's just the carrier bundle. Radios usually are updated. Look for the Modem Firmware near the bottom of the about screen. iOS 7.0.4 says 1.03.01

Anyone else pissed that field test still has not been updated? Small screen and non-iOS 7. I guess apple feels nobody even knows it's there, so why bother.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.

      hello i am here to start a htread for the ipad 9.7 inch 2017 edition

      CONTEST CLOSED!!!
       
      LIMITED TIME PROMOTION!!!
      YOU COULD POSSIBLY WIN A NEW iPHONE 8 IF YOU DONATE TO SUPPORT S4GRU
      **OR COMPARABLY PRICED ANDROID DEVICE!**

       
      The Goal
       
      The goal is to have some fun and raise some money to support S4GRU.  If we can raise enough money to cover the device by 8 PM Pacific Time on Friday, October 27th, then we will schedule the raffle.  The contest winner can select the color from what's available.  The winner can also select the carrier (not limited to Sprint).
       
      The Plan
       
      If we are able to raise at least as much as the device costs us plus incidental charges like taxes and shipping, we will add any additional proceeds to the S4GRU general fund.  If we can't raise enough, we will provide opportunity to refund.
       
      And which model it ends up being depends on how much money we can raise.  If we raise just $750, it will be the iPhone 8 64GB ($699 value).  For each additional $500 we collect beyond $750, we will give another $100 in toward upgrading to the iPhone 8+, iPhone X or memory/apple care upgrades.  The winner can select any variant or upgrades, but they will need to pay any cost difference, from the prize value.  Increases in prize vales will be announced in this thread.  THE WINNER CAN SELECT AN ANDROID DEVICE IN LIEU OF AN iPHONE, IF THEY CHOOSE.  Like a NOTE 8, Pixel 2, LG V30, Essential Phone, etc.  Equal or lesser value to the winning iPhone prize.
       
      The Raffle
       
      Each donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO will receive a range of numbers, equating to one number for every dollar you donate.  The minimum donation to the cause is $10.  If you donate $10, you get a range of 10 numbers.  If you donate $100, you get a range of 100 numbers.  The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning.  There is no limit to the amount you can donate...in amount or frequency.  But it needs to be at least $10 per donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO.
       
      You will receive a Private Message (or email if you are not a S4GRU member) from S4GRU giving you your numbers after your donation.  Most likely within 8-12 hours, but could take a day or two.
       
      We will stop accepting donations at 8PM Pacific on Friday, October 27th.  Any donations received after that time will not be counted toward this promotion.  Date and time of the drawing will be announced after the close of donations acceptance.  We will select a number at random using my random number generator app in my Pixel XL.  You do not need to be present in the live chat to win.
      All money donated to the raffle will be credited to your S4GRU accumulation total and will count toward future upgrades.  If you are not currently a S4GRU Sponsor, you will be given Sponsor status for six months with the minimum $10 raffle donation.

      To Enter
       
      Go to the S4GRU PayPal Donation section by clicking on this hyperlink or by by clicking the donate button in the upper right hand corner of most S4GRU pages.  Enter an amount you want to donate for this promotion, minimum $10.  In the notes section, tell us your screen name and type iPHONE 8 PROMO.  If you forget to do that in the PayPal donation, then send me a Message.  You will get a message response giving you your raffle numbers by 11 PM Pacific on 10/27/2017.  If you don't get them, message me.

      Rules
       
      S4GRU Membership is not required to enter.  S4GRU Staff Members and their families are ineligible to win.  Dollars spent on the promotion will count toward future member upgrades.  There is no cash value of the prize.  S4GRU will pay the shipping costs to send the prize to the winner.  The winner will be offered options as to network selections, device options and colors based on availability within the winning prize amount.   S4GRU cannot guarantee availability of any products, types, varieties or colors.  Although many devices can be used on several networks, S4GRU cannot guarantee operability on any network.  A SIM card purchase for the winner's preferred network may be required and is not paid by S4GRU.  This contest is void where prohibited.  Pre-scheduled automatic recurring payments to S4GRU during the contest period will not be eligible for entry in the contest.  Should the winner desire a phone other than the iPhone product offered at contest conclusion, they can request an Android device of equal or lesser value.  If a device more expensive than the iPhone offered is desired, the winner will need to pay the difference before the product will be ordered. If winner selects a less expensive phone than the prize offered, S4GRU will retain those funds as a donation.  The contest may be subject to amendment, extension or cancellation as necessary.  S4GRU reserves the right to provide a gift card or PayPal payment of the value of the prize for convenience or difficulty in sourcing the prize occurs.
