iModes: New and Only Alternative to Cydia Jailbreak App Store

All iPhone and iPad users who have used Redsn0w, Pangu, Evasi0n, the latest TaiG or earlier programs released by hackers for different firmware versions know only one iPhone jailbreak store which is Cydia. This is the trusted unofficial tweak and app store that has thousands of titles and tricks for all tastes.

Will this ever change? The popularity of iOS 8 jailbreak makes someone want to enter the community by introducing the new iMods store. It is not available yet. Its developers promise to launch their business sometime in January 2015. The question is… Will you give it a try or would you stay loyal to Cydia only?

iMod jailbreak store wants to become an alternative to Cydia and its only competitor. The iMods team is planning to bring a great UI that fits iOS 8 look and feeling. Devs promise to update their “Featured” section [you will find jailbreak packages here] once in two weeks. You will also find Updates and Top Charts sections where it will be possible to download the best and highly ranked tweaks and apps. It should be possible to uninstall your apps directly from Updates menu which is cool.

iMods Store UI

Cydia alternative for jailbroken iDevices should also include Top Paid, Top Free apps for iPhone and New Items. Having categories is always nice as it so much eases your choice and search [such an option will also be present additionally].

The new store iMods will have just one repository. There will be no need to add repos for different tweaks because all the applications will be submitted by devs directly to iMods [just like it now happens with BigBoss Cydia repo].

iMods just like Apple will mitigate all the tweaks that are submitted to the store.

The coolest part is all users who are running iOS 8 will see only apps and tweaks that support their firmware version. The same thing will happen to other firmwares [current iOS 7 and future iOS 9].

The changes sound pretty nice as for now. Let’s wait till January when everyone will be able to test the store and see how it can improve your life. Then you’ll decide for yourself whether you wish to use two stores or stay on Cydia only.

How To Use Method Of iPhone 6 Wireless Charging

Have you ever try iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 wireless charging? You may do it without any needed things to be tinkered with your device’s hardware.

Wireless charging appeared few years ago, but this method hasn’t been adopted for real consumers usage. Of course charge iPhone 6 wirelessly is huge convenience, but only some companies have adopted this method and only for a few of its iOS devises. However for now, Apple is one of many companies which stands away from this way of charging.

That’s why Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus don’t support wireless charging. Ewan Spence stated at Forbes that if Apple wasn’t going to go for it, he created a home-made innovation for it. Spence demonstrate how to add to 6 / 6 Plus wireless charging feature. Here’s what he developed:

But before use this method please note that charging your iPhone with non OEM chargers is really unsafe and is not recommended to do.

Requirements:

  • Qi Wireless Charging Card. (You can get one on eBay, it should have the Lightning port.)
  • Qi compatible wireless charging pad.
  • Protective case. (Not necessary, but recommended)

Here is instruction:

Step 1. Please make sure to set up Wi-Fi syncing for iTunes, and you’ll have to plug in your iPhone to your PC / Mac for that. This is necessary step to avoid constantly removing the Qi Wireless Charging Card for syncing, in other case it would wear down the Lightning port.

Step 2. After you have done the step 1 unplug the iPhone from your computer, and plug in to your iPhone the Lightning connector of the Qi Wireless Charging Card.

Step 3. Than flip the card to the back of your device so that the rings on it are exposed.

Step 4. The card is needed to be protected. You can use tape to stick the card to the back of iPhone 6. But it will be hard to put it to your pocket. A protective cover will keep the card in place and safe.

Step 5. After you have done it, pop in the compatible charging pad into a power source, and place your iOS device onto the pad to begin iPhone 6 wireless charging.

Now your iOS device can be charged wirelessly. Although it is recommended to avoid replacing wired charging for your device with this method. As if exposed to longer hours of wireless charging your iPhone 6 will heat up.

For example, take a look at the recently presented ‘Year in Search’ from Google. This data includes information about most popular smartphones in 2014 [the number one device is iPhone 6] along with other gadgets and products that gained customer approve and love.

You got it correct. Apple’s new iPhone 6 has become the product users like to search for on Google. This search term is highly popular in 2014. By the way, Google creates such lists every year but gives different titles. A year ago it was called Zeitgeist and this year it is called Year in Search. The Cupertino-based company is always on the list and you can guess why, but the fact that the current iPhone 6 took the top spot while it was launched in September only can tell you more than any other advice and opinions from analysts and users.

The list also includes Android gadgets along with Nexus 6 and Galaxy S5 that follow the iPhone 6. It’s up to you which device to purchase. It is definitely more expensive to buy iPhone 6 unlocked but if the price is too high for you it is possible to get one of the subsidized plans offered by U.S. carriers. This way you don’t have to pay the full price at once.
