Apple will be educating iOS developers on how to take full advantage of the their most advanced iOS via the iOS 5 Tech Talk World Tour 2011. It will be held in 9 cities worldwide and Beijing will be one of them.
Beijing in China and Seoul in South Korea will be the only 2 venues in Asia. Given the fact that China is one of Apple’s largest markets, that would be main reason why Beijing was chosen to participate in this world tour, aside from Berlin, London, Rome, São Paulo, New York City, Seattle and Austin. I took the photo below with yesterday – and it shows the growing influence of Apple in China.
So what’s iOS 5 Tech Talk World Tour 2011 all about? Apple mentioned in their FAQs that “we want to help iOS developers take their apps to the next level using the exciting new technologies in iOS 5. Our team of experts will visit nine cities around the world, covering advanced coding and design techniques that you can take advantage of in your apps. Since Tech Talks are highly technical, it’s important that you have experience programming with the iOS SDK and have an app actively in development or on the App Store.”
Apple has emphasized that this talk is not meant for beginners but rather for seasoned developers, with the help of experts, to gain valuable knowledge on advanced coding and design techniques beneficial for the ongoing development of App Store apps.
Since there are still slots available for Beijing, I decided to go ahead and sign up for this event. I hope they’ll approve me.
If you purchased an iPhone 4 locked to Australia’s Telstra or Vodafone but can’t unlock it due to baseband 4.11.08, we can now provide permanent unlock service for your iPhone 4 via IMEI registration on Apple’s database.
Using this service your iPhone 4 on Australia’s Telstra or Vodafone will never be locked out and you can always use any SIM card worldwide.

This is the only permanent unlock solution for Apple iPhone 4 as your IMEI is registered as ‘unlocked’ on Apple’s database.
- Simply connect to iTunes to have your iPhone 4 officially unlocked by Apple forever.
- Extremely easy and no technical knowledge required.
- Legal and no jailbreaking needed.
- Update to iOS 5 and beyond freely without having to worry about your baseband being updated.
- No more messing around with Gevey.
- Unlocks all currently available and future basebands.
How does it work?
1. Submit your IMEI number from your iPhone in the order page (get this 15 digit number by going to Settings > General > About on your iPhone 4).
2. We will send you an email once it is ready to be officially unlocked (typically 5-7 days in most cases and up to 14 business days)
3. Install the latest version of iTunes and backup your iPhone 4.
4. Restore to the latest iOS version by clicking restore or update.
5. Once restore is complete, disconnect iPhone and reconnect it after 10 seconds.
6. Now insert a different carrier SIM card (not your official carrier SIM card).
7. Wait until iTunes detects your iPhone. iTunes will then display:
Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked.
Is your IMEI blacklisted? No problem! You can still unlock it! We are adding more countries soon so watch this space.

Is this going to be the best news for those who are on baseband 6.15.00?
MuscleNerd et al had just released resn0w 0.9.6b6 for both Mac and Windows. Here’s the full change logs on their website:
“We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone 3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode.
It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked). If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).”
One of his followers responded:
“@MuscleNerd by location services do you mean that the gps issue for 3GS users on 6.15 is fixed?”
And he replied:
“the 06.15 BB has “assisted GPS” (aGPS), so it’ll use things like tower triangulation in apps like Google Maps, (and even if aGPS isn’t robust in your area, it’s worth applying this fix so that you can keep Location Services on)”
This doesn’t sound like the GPS is fixed but somehow it improves the functionality of the baseband 6.15.00 on 3G/3GS.
MuscleNerd recommends that you re-apply rehacktivation if you’ve hacktivated with custom iOS created with sn0wbreeze before.
“it gets applied if you’ve hactivated with redsn0w (so worst case: Deactivate with redsn0w, then run redsn0w again to hactivate)”
Have a go and see how much this new redsn0w helps on your Location Services.
OK, so you managed to install iOS 5 with custom firmware, but irritatingly your WiFi is broken and you’re not able to download ultrasn0w via Cydia. Don’t worry, you can still unlock your iPhone 3GS.
Your device should already be jailbroken by now, because that’s a requirement to unlock your iPhone.
If you haven’t jailbroken your iPhone use this instruction. Do everything until step 17. Done? Then let’s continue below.
1. Download i-FunBox for Windows or DiskAid for Mac.
2. Launch i-FunBox or DiskAid and go to /private/var/root/Media.
3. Inside Media folder create a folder called Cydia.
4. Now inside Cydia folder create an AutoInstall folder. Note: The folder name is case-sensitive so be sure to name it accurately. It should look something like this:
5. Now copy ultrasnow.deb [ultrasn0w_1.2.4.deb] file and MobileSubstrate [mobilesubstrate_0.9.3901_iphoneos-arm.deb] file into AutoInstall folder.
6. Reboot iPhone (remember it’s currently boot tethered! So start redsn0w > Extras > Just Boot).
This tutorial will also work if you have an iPhone 4 baseband 1.59.00.
Good luck and leave any comments or questions below.
