Which iOS Jailbreak Apps make your iDevice really cool?

I have a long personal history with jailbreaking my iOS devices…

I had / have them all:

original iPhone iPad (64 GB WiFi)
iPhone 3G iPad 2 (64 GB WiFi)
iPhone 3GS iPad 3 (64 GB WiFi/3G)
iPhone 4  
iPhone 4S  
iPhone 5  

And I have started jailbreaking them as early as firmwares 1.xx .

It can be sometimes dangerous and cumbersome to jailbreak, but several Cydia apps are definitely worth the hassle. In this post I will try to keep a list of trusted and working Cydia apps. I will try to add a small description, if the function is not obvious.

Have fun checking out my list after the break…

World record panoramic photo of London

On this page, you can enjoy a gorgeous virtual round trip of London. Many great sightseeing points can be viewed with a unprecidented level of detail – all in one photo. There are certain “landmark points”, as well as a virtual tour.

The panoramic view was stiched together from 8000 photos and is 400.000 x 200.000 pixels in sizes. Try that with your usual digital camera!

A personal tip: also try to look down, more or less where you stand and you can see Londoners in their daily life:

Install Windows via USB Stick

It is quite easy to install one of the more modern Windows variants using a USB stick. You simply have to execute the following steps, using a USB stick of 4 GB or more.

1. Make the stick bootable

from a DOS prompt execute: diskpart
list disk
select disk 1 (assuming disk 1 was your thumb drive in the above list disk command)
create partition primary
select partition 1
format fs=fat32

Now the stick is bootable.

2. Windows files

Copy the contents of your Windows image or DVD to the base level of the stick.


Make sure that in your BIOS boot options, you have selected USB as primary boot option.

4. Booting

You will notice a significant boost in installation speed!! 🙂

Powers of Ten…

A truly amazing video from 1977 (who would believe it?) about mind-blowing dimensions of the macro- and micro-cosmos. Gorgeous as it is, it makes you feel insignificantly small and huuuuuge at the same time. And in the end, you are left alone with the question what it is that keeps the world together.

Hi there!

This is my “hello world” post under this domain. In the next time, I am going to post nifty bits about technology and life in general on this blog. Have fun following or don’t. ;-D
