Just after releasing the iOS 6.1.2 update, Apple has released the iOS 6.1.3 beta for iOS developers, this includes developers for the iPhone, iPad, and the iPod Touch or iTouch. The recent updates were designed to fix bugs in iOS. The iOS 6.1.3 update is reported to to fix the Lock screen bug along with several enhancements to Apple Maps App specifically for Japan.
Also, unconfirmed reports surface that the new update will also address and fix the exploits that were used in the recent Jailbreaks.
So if you are an iOS developer you should be able to have access to the iOS 6.1.3 beta update, as for us regular iOS users, there is still no date for the public release of iOS 6.1.3. So stay tuned.
Good guy Deank is at it again. He’s back with another Multiman update with multiMAN ver 04.20.00.
With the Multiman 4.20.0 udpate, Deank has coded his own payload. (No more [Hermes], [Standard], [PL3]) and created a seemingly more efficient payload with the following advantages:
* It doesn’t use any syscalls
* It is just 252 bytes (over 5-6 times smaller than other payloads)
* It doesn’t overwrite any code in LV2 memory
* It doesn’t allocate kernel memory
* It supports multiple path/files redirections
* It is memory-position independent and easy to use on all firmwares
* … and is 252 bytes
Note: He ran it with a test version first with the multiMAN ver 04.19.07 UPD CEX TEST to test the stability of the file manager, and from the test he was able to fully release a stable update with MultiMan 4.20.0
Looks like Apple has rolled out another minor update for iOS devices, You can now download iOS 6.1.2 for your iOS device. Just like with the iOS 6.1.1 update that was only for the iPhone 4s, the iOS 6.1.2 update also comes with such minimal features that it’s not exactly a mandatory update for most users except obviously for those users affected by any bugs that the 6.1.2 updates addresses.
As you can see from the screenshot above, the update fixes an Exchange calendar bug that increases network activity resulting to reduced battery life. And the iOS 6.1.2 update is just measly 11.5MB download.
As we count down the
days hours for the expected announcement of the PS4 on February 20 2013, Sony has released these retrospective videos for the PSOne, PS2, PS3, PSP and Vita to celebrate the history of the PlayStation Franchise and it’s gaming dominance ever since it released the first PlayStation.
All of these PlayStation documentary videos are produced by Sony, so you know the legacy for the PS3 will somewhat be a little exaggerated (even though the PS3 is obviously Tech4idiots favorite console to date). But it still very interesting to relive the past consoles moment as we take a look at their retrospective videos.
MultiMAN ver 04.19.07 is now available available for download. Busy man Deank is back again with another update to his ever popular file manager with the Multiman 04.19.07 update. It’s just another minor update adding support for PSOne multi-disc games.
Here is a list included in this very small update:

As gamers, Hard Drive space is something that we all eventually run out of. And given the limited capacities of the current PS3 models, getting an external Hard Drive for your PS3 seems like a very good idea.
PS3 storage capacities range from the tiny 12GB super slim model to the biggest one having 500GB of storage space. Even the 500GB PS3 gets filled up pretty fast, Game Data, Game Saves, DLC’s and other essential stuff you need for your PS3 games can eat up a lot of valuable storage space. And add to that if you also use your PS3 as a multimedia hub and you have tons of MP3′s and movies saved in your PS3. This is where a PS3 External hard Drive comes to the rescue.
Unfortunately, not all External Hard Drives available on the market are created equal. (For the PS3, atleast)
Real Racing 3, the Gran Turismo of the Playstation, or the Forza Motorsport of the Xbox, or what ever floats your boat, is expected to be released on February 28 this year. And this time around, Real Racing 3 is free.

Yes, you read that right, the games developer Firemonkeys has announced that their popular and visually impressive Racing game will be free, free-to-play. And on top of that, Real Racing 3 will also be released for Android and Kindle (via Amazon’s App Store) devices. Nice to know the developers are also showing some love for other platforms as well.
But as expected after going free, not all content would be unlocked at the beginning of the game, but rather players will be able to unlock all the content in time, or most probably during game progression (well see). However, players can skip this waiting time of trying to unlock cars and tracks by obtaining them through game progression by purchasing them with real cash as CNET reports.
I have purchased and enjoyed the first 2 real Racing games with my iOS devices, and getting the 3rd version of this game for free seems like a good deal to me. How about you? What do you think.
iOS 6.1.1 is now available for your Apple device, Apple has started pushing out the iOS 6.1.1 update for iPhone 4s users a while ago today. And availability for other iOS devices are also expected to be rolled out later.
This is just a very minor update intended to fix some issues regarding 3G coverage of some carriers in Europe. And since the update was rolled out to address a minor wireless connectivity issue, it is possible that the iOS 6.1.1 update is only for the iPhone 4s. Like how the iOS 5.1.1 update was only for the iPhone 5. You can update your iPhone 4s over the air or you can download the iOS 6.1.1 update here.
While it’s no secret that Steve Jobs was very serious when he publicized his intentions to go thermonuclear and spend every last bit of Apple’s resources against Android and Samsung and put them out of business. Apple’s current CEO, Tim Cook, is apparently not on the same page with Steve on this one.
According to reports posted on Reuters, unnamed sources close to Apple and has inside knowledge about the situation reports that Tim was really opposed to suing Samsung in the first place. And really sounds logical since Samsung is a very big Parts supplier for Apple products.
Just when you thought you were already running the latest Multiman version with MultiMAN 4.19.04, you better think again. Lately, Deank has been updating Multiman with minor updates to improve game compatibilities and other improvements for the homebrew loving community.
