F0recast: Easiest Way To Find Out iPhone 3GS Bootrom Version

F0recast iPhone 3GS Bootrom Version

Though there are tools that make it easy to jailbreak iPhone, things have got a lot more complicated and confusing with the release of iOS4 and updated boot ROM in iPhone 3GS models.

We had published a step-by-step guide on how to find out iPhone 3GS bootrom version. But as some of our readers have pointed out there is an easier way to find out without putting your iPhone 3GS in DFU mode.

iH8sn0w, developers of popular jailbreaking tool, Sn0wbreeze had released a tool called F0recast for iPhone OS 3.1.3 to find out if your iPhone 3GS can be jailbroken with or without tethering and whether your iPhone can be unlocked.

F0recast also gives the information such as the serial number, baseband version, bootloader version and model number of your iPhone.

However, iH8sn0w hasn’t updated F0recast for iOS 4 so information about jailbreaking, unlocking is not very accurate.

But you can easily find out if iPhone 3GS has older or newer bootrom using F0recast.

All you need to do is connect your iPhone 3GS to the computer and launch F0recast.

Mac Users:

F0recast for Mac will let you know if iPhone 3GS can be ‘Untethered’ (as seen in the screenshot below). If it is ‘Yes’ then your iPhone 3GS has the older bootrom. iPhone 3GS has the new bootroom if it is ‘No’.

Windows Users:

F0recast for Windows will let you know if iPhone 3GS can be ‘Tethered’ (as seen in the screenshot below). If it is ‘No’ then your iPhone 3GS has the older bootrom. iPhone 3GS has the new bootroom if it is ‘Yes’.

The requirements for the application to run properly include .Net Frameworks 2.0 or higher, and iTunes 9.0 or higher for Windows users and iTunes 9.0 or higher for Mac users.

You can download the latest version of F0recast for free from iH8sn0w’s website.

Please drop us a line if you've any further questions.

Thanks everyone for reminding us about F0recast.

Lenovo Trying Face Recognition For Logins On New Laptops

June 13th, 2010 06:50 admin View Comments

judgecorp writes “Lenovo’s new IdeaPads will be using face recognition as a way to replace passwords for users logging onto the laptops. ‘Lenovo’s VeriFace combines the Windows login and file encryption to password-protect individual files. It identifies users by matching unique features of their faces to photographs taken by the 1.3-megapixel webcam built into the laptop. When Windows users start up their PCs, a camera window pops up in the login frame. The user then just has to adjust their position so their face appears in the window, and VeriFace logs them in automatically.’ That could be good, but is the technology really ready for mass market devices? HP ran into trouble when its face recognition software had trouble recognizing people with darker skin.”

MS Kills Support For XPSP2

May 13th, 2010 05:41 admin View Comments

Trailrunner7 writes “Microsoft’s announcement this week that it is preparing to end support for machines running Windows XP SP2 not only represents a challenge for the thousands of businesses still running SP2, but also is the end of an era for both Microsoft and its customers. It wasn’t until 2004 that the final release of XP SP2 hit the streets, but when it did, it represented a huge step forward in security for Windows users. It wasn’t necessarily the feature set that mattered as much as the fact that the protections were enabled by default and taken out of the users’ hands.”

How Europe’s Mandated Browser Ballot Screen Works

CWmike writes “After an 11-month legal face-off, Microsoft and European antitrust officials signed off yesterday on the ballot screen concept that will give Windows users a chance to download rivals’ browsers. But now that the battle’s over and the ink has dried, it’s time to look closely. Some FAQ examples: What’s Microsoft promised? How will it work? How many browsers will be on the ballot? Who decides which browsers? Who will see it?”
