Economic Downturn Hits Apple Hard!

Prices of Apple (AAPL) stocks took a severe blow following warnings from two separate analysts. Mike Abramsky with RBC Capital has downgraded Apple’s rating from “Outperform” to “Sector Perform,” lowering their stock target from $200 to just $140. Similarly, Morgan Stanley analyst Kathryn Huberty switched her rating from “Overweight” to “Equal Weight,” dropping her predicted target from $175 to $115.

Since the announcements, Apple’s stock has dropped over $20 (at the time this was written), resulting in one of the biggest price drops in over two years for the company.

So why the sudden pessimism from the analysts? Most of it is linked to the Mac. Mike Abramsky says that it’s due to a “worsening consumer spending environment,” specifically in relation to Macs. A survey from september indicated that just 29% intended to buy a MacBook in the next 90 days, compared to 34% in August, and only 26% for a desktop compared to 30% in August. It is estimated that this is one of the biggest drops in two and a half years.

Huberty said that higher-end computer sales are quickly loosing ground.

Dev got teh 2.2!

Released by the dev team..

While we continue working on the two current remaining challenges from Apple (the iPhone 3G soft unlock and iPod Touch 2G jailbreak…see the end of this post), we’re also watching the latest beta releases from Apple.

The first beta 2.2 from Apple reveals a few things:

  1. They’re continuing with their ski-resort theme;  Version 2.2 is nicknamed TImberline.  
  2. They’ve gone back to using expiry dates.  The first 2.2 beta is due to expire on November 30, 2008.  They stopped using expiry dates about halfway through the 2.1 betas, but for some reason they’ve started using them again.
  3. Version 2.2 is still vulnerable to pwnage and quickpwn on everything but iPod Touch 2G.

To demonstrate point #3, here’s the non-AppStore application Terminal.app running on 2.2, showing the kernel build information.

Hardware already vulnerable to pwnage remains vulnerable in version 2.2.

Terminal.app on 2.2

Regarding the two current challenges:  the 3G iPhone soft unlock and iPod Touch 2G jailbreak are still relatively new challenges (compare them with the timeframe of the iPhone challenges last year).  We’re making slow advances on both fronts, but it’s not the sort of thing that can be easily described in a blog like this.  

But, to maybe show how interlinked these challenges are, this weekend we’ll be trying some hardware based ideas on the iPod Touch 2G jailbreak 🙂

New Version of Installer.

Apologies for being so silent over the past weeks. There are no real excuses, other than being totally swamped with various work on all fronts that we’ve been doing… and hopefully you’ll be able to see them soon.

Now, what’s new?
Installer 4.0b8 is out (it’s been ready for a while and even included in the last PwnageTool but we were holding off to releasing it publically). Among notable features is the switch to libcurl from the stock Foundation URL loading classes, which means more lightweight CPU and memory footprint and, more importantly, resumable file transfers. The new beta also features a plethora of little fixes which we won’t extensively list here. Enjoy. We’ll be pushing out a 4.0 release soonish…
The featured page you see when you launch Installer is actually automatically generated based on the popularity of the packages (based on the number of installations across the board), so it’s nothing like the “old” featured page that listed a set of pre-defined products. It will eventually have some “sponsored” products, but they will be easily distinguishable visually and we’ll try to keep the amount of these to the minimum – no more than 3.
Community Sources are updated as well to reflect the change in the modmyi.com domain name and to remove some outdated sources that shown promise but actually never delivered anything.
Kate update been out for a while, and we’re finally at adding new features to it – so look for a non-bugfix release in the near future.
If you’re a software publisher and would like to be hosted in Installer – please let us know and we’ll do all the work for creating proper install scripts and hosting on our server (which has a few spare terabytes of bandwidth).
Moreover, thank you for staying with us and supporting us along the way – it couldn’t been done without you!
From yous truly,

From the creater of iSlsk Comes Pwnplayer!

As per your request… here’s an update that will show you what I’ve been working on all this time.

Here it is my next application to be released along with iSlsk for 2.0 firmware within a few days. It’s called PwnPlayer (in honor of the jailbreaking tool we all know and love), and is a media player app that will aim to be a full replacement for your current default music app.

The reason why I made PwnPlayer in the first place was because iSlsk’s music import feature is no longer available on 2.0 firmware. So I needed something to be able to play my downloaded music in the iPhone file system in a ‘cool’ and friendly way.. the apps out there for this purpose weren’t any good at all, so that’s why I decided to make an app that mimics the MobileMusicPlayer interface, as well as enables a lot of extras.

Key features include (all shown in the video above):

For Linux, iSlsk users and iTunes haters: File system playback. PwnPlayer reads any folder inside your iPhone/iPod file system and will play mp3s the same way MobileMusicPlayer does, with playlist, artwork and add/remove/tag edit support. Simply drag and drop your mp3 files using your favorite file browsing app such as WinSCP, CureFTP, CyberDuck or iPhoneBrowser… Or download them using iSlsk or any other music download app!

Music Library compatibility: if you still want to keep using iTunes *vomit*, PwnPlayer is fully compatible with the internal music library

Search: type in the first letters of the song/artist/album/file you are looking for, tap search and it will appear right there for you.. works both with music library and file system songs.

Lock-Screen gesture controls: this is one of my favorites. You can control your PwnPlayer by swiping your finger on the lock screen, for easy handling from your pocket.. without having to unlock the device. If you haven’t seen it already in the video above, here’s a screenshot:

CoverFlow: mimcs almost the same coverflow appearance seen in MobileMusicPlayer. It works only with iTunes library for now, but in the future will also support file system mp3s.

Background mode: PwnPlayer is for jailbroken devices, so you don’t have to worry about it not being able to run in background. Screw Apple SDK ridiculous rules!

SpringBoard integration: PwnPlayer automatically integrates with SpringBoard. You will see the current playing song info in your lock screen, and you’ll be able to use the home double-tap shortcut to control music playback when you are in another app while PwnPlayer is running on background.

Playlist managing: Create, edit, and remove playlists on the fly easily.

All the above will be available on its first release. Future updates will include:

Plug-ins: Yes, if the aforementioned wasn’t enough, you will still be able to add more and more features to PwnPlayer thru it’s plug in system. Or even make your own plugins and distribute them! support for more formats, Lyrics viewer, a Last.FM scrobbler, streaming.. imagine what could be done, and that you will never see on default MobileMusicPlayer.

Video: Currently PwnPlayer does not support video playback, but it’s one of its top priorities for future updates.

Support for genius playlists?: I still don’t know how difficult will be to support this new feature introduced in 2.1 firmware, but yes, it might be available in future updates as well.

Move music files between file system and music library back and forth?: well, I already said this is not available now because the new iTunesDB security checksums have not been cracked yet.. but if someday they finnally get fully reverse engineered, this will be completely possible.

A few more small things need to be finished, and it will be released on Cydia along with the long-awaited iSlsk (called iSoulseek from now on) for 2.0 firmware

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

I gotta say, as a former user of iSlsk this does look pretty sweet. For anyone that just got there 3G, or so on iSlsk is a user friendly way ( back in the 1.1.4 days ) that lets you download music directly from your iphone. Now Dtunes, and MXtube has also been already released. Lets see if Pwnplayer can keep up. My thoughts are high for this application.

Baby come back.

Even after the 2.1 software update, some users are continuing to report reception issues on their iPhone 3Gs. While the 2.1 software update technically did claim that it wouldn’t actually boost signal strength but make the signal more accurate. Nonetheless, I saw a noticeable difference in my reception, but some users say that the issue with dropped calls still persists.

“the point is that the 3G did go from zero to all the bars but still dropping the calls!

“I just bought my iphone yesterday and as soon as i got home the reception was terribal so i updated it to 2.1 and instead of getting no bars i get 1 to 3 bars but it goes off and on and turns 3g off and goes to edge.”

There is another method for checking your phone’s signal strength by looking at its dB meter. You can access the dB meter by going into field test mode, which is done by dialing Dial 3001#12345# then press “Call.” A dB reading below 50 is a good sign.

However, there is suspicion that the issue with dropped calls is actually due to AT&T’s network being overloaded in some areas where their towers can’t handle all of the demand at once. The fact that it’s still going on seems to be a sign that the true issue has yet to be resolved.

Sorry AT@T. Try again next time!
