Record Live Streams & Radio on iPhone/iPod Touch !!

Another useful tool for a heavily protected OS. If you want to record live streams, radio or any stream or even podcast on iPhone, you can now do that using Pocket Tunes. Pocket Tunes now comes bundled with all codecs for almost all formats for all streams. You can add your custom URLs even if the standard search doesn't find the URL or radio station you are looking for. For you to download the recording (which is saved as a .AAC file) you obviously need to jailbreak and just use iPhoneBrowser and navigate to /var/mobile/Applications/Documents/PtRecordings. Below are the links to PocketTunes & iPhoneBrowser.

On a side note PocketTunes has this new AACPlus codec which i have still not managed to get because the link via the app to itunes is broken or maybe iTunes is no longer carrying the codec. if anyone finds it please let me/us know..

AT&T Tethering finally working on iPhone 3GS 3.1.3 Latest Bootrom..

As usual this was another one which took forever to find. After the Spirit Jailbreak for iPhone OS 3.1.3 was out, everyone started searching for the tethering options. The SinFull "Enable Tethering" via Cydia didn't work anymore since they were compatible only with 3.1.2. The only option was to go via MyWi App available on CYDIA. The new feature on MyWi is to enable tether via WiFi as well as USB. Now MyWi also has an option called "Auto Fix Tethering". Try that and it will bring back the Tether Option under Settings > General > Network and will enable it by default. Now you don't even have to start MyWi to have tethering. You can download MyWi from Sinfuliphone Repo after adding it to CYDIA.
