iPod touch 3.1.1 IPSW Supported by PwnageTool 3.1

http://news.softpedia.com

“Because of changes with Apple’s update techniques (that complicate the 3GS upgrade process) this will be a multipart release,” the hackers wrote on their blog when making PwnageTool 3.1 available. “This release starts with PwnageTool 3.1 for Mac OS X – this application supports the iPhone 1st Generation (2G), the iPhone 3G and the iPod touch 1G,” the Dev Team outlined, warning in capital letters that PwnageTool 3.1 did not support new-gen devices including the iPhone 3GS, the 2G iPod touch and, of course, the latest iPod touch (late 2009) introduced at this year’s iPod event.

As such, to jailbreak an iPod touch 1G (original iPod touch), users must download the appropriate iPod1,1_3.1.1_7C145_Restore.ipsw file, use the PwnageTool to create a custom firmware image, and restore with that IPSW using iTunes.

iPod touch second- and third-generation users are currently locked out of PwnageTool 3.1, the team stresses on its blog. However, second-gen touch owners can still use Redsn0w for an earlier (pre 3.1) firmware release, should they have mistakenly updated their baseband.

This Wednesday (September 9th) is Apple’s annual iPod event

http://www.marco.org

This Wednesday (September 9th) is Apple’s annual iPod event, where they’re likely to refresh most or all of the iPod lineup like they’ve done at nearly every fall iPod event.

The iPod line is admittedly lower-profile since many Apple fanatics have switched to iPhones, but a lot of people still buy iPods, and the Touch lineup is relevant to iPhone users and developers.

(Officially, the product names are iPod shuffle, iPod nano, iPod touch, and iPod classic — note that the second word in each is not capitalized. I choose to ignore that and capitalize their second words, often referring to them only as “the Touch”, “the Classic”, etc. for reduced tedium in articles like this that are only about iPods.)

The Shuffle will probably not be mentioned. It may have its price quietly dropped. $79 for a 4 GB screenless player is steep by today’s standards. A more fitting price may be $49.

Taito releases classic Bust-a-Move game for iPhone

http://www.macworld.com

Taito’s classic puzzle action game Bust-a-Move is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch. It costs $5 and is available for download from the App Store.
Imitated countless times and spurring numerous sequels and spin-offs, Bust-a-Move features simple action puzzle gameplay: You must link three or more identical bubbles to clear them from the screen. The game features the adorable cartoon character dinosaur Bub, who mans a catapult that launches colored balls in the direction of the play field. Players can use techniques like banking shots off walls and erasing several bubbles at once to win.

Two different control schemes are supported, Tap Shot and the pull-and-release Sling Shot method. A Story Mode chronicles Bub’s quest to rescue his friend Chack’n’s captured family; it’s spread over 180 stages.

Bust-a-Move for iPhone and iPod touch has been augmented with iPhone OS 3.0-specific features such as a Vs. Mode that pits you against other players over Bluetooth.

System requirements call for an iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone OS 3.0 or later.

Hama cases foreshadow 5G iPod nano, 3G iPod touch at IFA: hands-on

http://www.engadget.com

We know you don't really need any more evidence that Apple is gearing up to unveil at least two new iPod revisions at its forthcoming 'rock and roll' event, but are you seriously going to hit the ignore button on these? If you'll recall, last year's visit to Hama's IFA booth gave us early access to cases of Apple's then-upcoming round of iPod nanos, and this year the company seems to be disclosing all of Cupertino's secrets once more. On hand were cases for Apple's fifth-generation iPod nano and the third-generation iPod touch, both of which seem to make room for a built-in camera. Of course, these lovely peripherals could be nothing more than a complete waste of company resources, but we'd encourage you to browse the gallery below before jumping to that conclusion.

More from the police blotter: Sagemore Apple Store hit by burglars

http://www.tuaw.com

While the past few days have seen a spy saga of a stolen laptop and a few rapidly recovered stolen iPhones, the story at the Sagemore Apple Store in Marlton, New Jersey is more of your basic "five guys vs. a plate-glass door." A well-organized 2 am robbery at the store netted the team a substantial haul of 23 MacBook Pro laptops, 14 iPhones and nine iPod touch handhelds.
