How to fix safe mode crashes in iOS 8.4 when Activator is installed

iPhone Safe Mode iOS 8.4

You may have noticed that your device will respring into safe mode whenever the public version of Activator is installed on iOS 8.4. The problem is, many tweaks rely on Activator as a prerequisite, and Activator hasn’t been updated to work with iOS 8.4 as of yet.

Does that mean that any tweak that relies on Activator is simply unusable until Ryan Petrich pushes out a public update? Not at all. Just install the Activator beta…

How to fix the dreaded virtual machine error when attempting to run the TaiG jailbreak

Sorry, this application cannot run under a Virtual Machine TaiG Jailbreak

In a previous post, I lamented about the fact that I received a dreaded virtual machine error when trying to run the TaiG jailbreak tool on VMware Fusion 7. The error went something like this: Sorry, this application cannot run under a Virtual Machine.

Not only is that totally ambiguous, but it really didn’t make much sense when you consider that the prior TaiG tool ran with no problems. After trying a few solutions I found via Google, I resigned myself to the fact that I would probably just have to settle and use the old tool instead..

Fortunately, however, one of our awesome readers has come though with a fix. Mohamed Elkady shared this interesting little trick to help bypass a frustrating error. In this post and video, I’ll walk you through the entire process step-by-step.... Read the rest of this post here

TaiG 20 percent 8.3 stuck

Many would-be jailbreakers are stuck at the 20% progress mark with the just-released TaiG 2.0.0 jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3. The jailbreak starts well enough, but after a quick takeoff, putters out at the 20% mark.

Reloading Data

From time to time, you may encounter a situation where Cydia will not stop “Reloading Data”.

How to fix the “Can’t find Apple driver” issue with TaiG for Windows

Can't find Apple driver, please download and install iTunes

If you’ve been trying to jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta 1 or 2 with TaiG 1.3.0 over the last couple of days, you may have encountered an issue. An error that says: “Can’t find Apple driver, please download and install iTunes” has been causing all sorts of problems for would be jailbreakers.

iTunes may indeed already be installed, but it’s the latest version of iTunes for 64-bit Windows machines that’s causing the error to begin with. Perhaps you’ve tried to downgrade your copy of iTunes unsuccessfully. Or maybe you’ve just given up on trying to jailbreak your iPhone on a Windows machine.

Android’s new assistant app helps you use (and fix) your Nexus

Google Device Assist on a Nexus 5

So you just snagged a Nexus 6, and you need help navigating Android 5.0 Lollipop or figuring out why your battery life is lousy. Who do you turn to? As of today, you can turn to an app: Google has released Device Assist, a helper tool for Android One, Google Play Edition and Nexus devices. You'll get tips and tricks, like most digital guidebooks, but it'll also offer "proactive" fixes for detected issues; it'll turn down the screen brightness if it's cranked too high, for instance. If you're using a Google Play Edition or Nexus, you also have a fast track to Google's live support. No, this won't magically repair cracked screens and other broken hardware, but it could spare you from scouring the web (or making a tech support call) to get a solution.

Worried that Cydia will be too slow after the jailbreak? Don’t worry too much

Reloading Data Cydia

It’s the same story with almost every jailbreak. The new jailbreak is released, and folks rush to download all of their favorite jailbreak apps and tweaks. The result is a less than primed experience due to the stress that this places on Cydia and the repos hosting the various packages. After a new jailbreak is released, it usually takes a few days for everything to calm down to somewhat normal levels.

This time around, though, Saurik, and the repo managers appear to be taking preemptive actions to ensure a smoother experience immediately post jailbreak release. While nothing is assured until the inevitable deluge of user requests places stress on the system, you should look forward to a much better experience than in times past.(...)

Early iOS 6 adopters report problems getting Exchange push email: are you affected?

iOS 6 Mail

We all know about the central issue surrounding iOS 6. For the suits and ties among us, however, there's a potentially more glaring problem with Exchange support. Some users quick to upgrade to Apple's latest mobile OS report losing automatic push delivery of their email, requiring that they check for themselves to get any fresh messages. The issue isn't carrier- or device-specific, and attempts to reboot, reconfigure or restore devices are at best temporary fixes: what flows smoothly at first runs dry several hours later. Apple technicians are aware that the flaw exists, but it's tough to know if and when engineers will have a fix -- the company typically waits until it has a solution in hand before it goes on the record. We've reached out to Apple for a possible comment all the same. In the meantime, let us know if your Exchange access (or push data as a whole) is going awry.

[Thanks, Daniel]
