If you wanted to download Pangu update on Cydia you can do so now. Saurik who took down the new jailbreak app update because it caused some errors and users complained about them has returned the new 0.2 version back to his unofficial app store.

Pangu Cydia download v.0.2 supports iOS 8 – 8.1.x device jailbreaking. Besides, you can now get the Cydia Substrate upgrade as well as Saurik has released the new version 0.9.5015. According to Pangu team, their Pangu jailbreak iOS 8 update solves the problems with Safari browser [it used to crash a lot], Cydia Substrate [it caused issues after reboot] and iMessage [this app used to fail sending images].

iOS 8 jailbreak Cydia download is free of charge. It is not difficult to update using this application if you are already jailbroken via previous Pangu jailbreak tool for iOS 8 – 8.1 iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

If you are still using earlier version of Cydia Substrate you are advised to download the latest release as it solves the bugs and makes the jailbroken device run smoothly. If you keep the previous 0.9.5014 version you can continue getting problems with iTunes syncing, icon disappearance and experience the bug when programs fail to be installed.

Users who haven’t jailbroken their iOS 8 Apple device yet should better wait for another Pangu update as this tool still supports only Windows computers and doesn’t have English version.

Developers continue updating their applications for jailbroken gadgets and tweaks.

T-Mobile’s CEO Talks About SIM Locked iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

What is Apple SIM lock? John Legere from T-Mobile discussed this topic during the Re/code’s Code/Mobile event. He explained what Apple SIMlock status means and when you get it. For example, when a user purchases the new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus at a full price directly from Apple he or she gets a fully unlocked smartphone which can support any network. The similar thing happens to the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2.

T-Mobile SIM card is locked when you get the new iPhone 6 directly from T-Mobile or AT&T store. The carriers offer the Apple SIM that is pre-coded to their particular network. In other words, once you got the iDevice where TMobile SIM is locked you can not longer use it as an interchangeable because it will work with one carrier only, the one you bought your gadget from.

This happens to T-Mobile SIM locked iPhone 6 / 6Plus and iPad. You have to stay with your mobile company until you decide to unlock the smartphone or tablet.

If you buy the new iPad from Apple you will receive a tablet with an interchangeable SIM card inside that supports T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T. So anyone who is looking for the fully unlocked tablet has to make the purchase from Apple store and not from the carrier’s store.

As Legere notes, the new iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus are two models that are very successful. As he says, any modern “store without the iPhone is sh*t” and he is right as the high demand for the new “fruit” smartphone is only growing. The supply of these popular handsets still haven’t caught up to the demand.


Users Suffer Serious Apple Pay Issues

iOS 8 release brought the new Apple payment service called Apple Pay. Users who were quick to adapt this system and began paying for products and services online and in retail stores using this one-click option experience some unpleasant Apple Pay problems.

According to Bank of America, iOS 8 feature called Apple Pay double charges truly exist and this is a big issue right now. This Bank is Apple’s partner in the project, and it looks like the first mobile payment has the bugs that need to be resolved.

Apple Pay bug includes double charges and this is one of the major issues for customers who have already added their credit card number and details to Apply Pay system. Receiving double charges is not very nice.

While users are not happy with Apple Pay issues, Bank of America reports that it faces a technical error and this error double charges the users’ accounts. The company is developing a fix to this issue and hopefully it will soon fix everything.

So far, about one thousand transactions got the double charge on them. The problems is not on Apple’s side, the report states.

Did you try the new Apple Pay service yet? What do you think about it? Did you have the issue with double transaction or not?
