1.Sara – Best Free Alternate to Siri – by Nobita.ZZZ
- ask for weather,
- ask for cinema now showing movie
- ask for place to drink coffee, beer, eat pizza, …,
- ask for direction,
- call contact,
- message contact,
- open apps,
- remote control pc (restart, shutdown, play music, open game, … or whatever you need, just config the app runing on PC),
- play music, search for playlist and play, …
Dear users First of all, thanks for using Sara, and your supports. I’m appreciated and very happy !! As you know, Sara is Free and always Free, with many awsome features, and support ANY iDevice (from iPhone original to iPhone 4s & iPad2 !), I tried my best and I promise I will continue trying my best !! But (I’m so sorry for this word: “But”), I cannot continue spending ~15-18 hours (sometime 30 hours, without sleep @.@) for only Sara: improve Sara, take vids, support users, … Again, I’m so sorry about this. I’m Project Manager, and I have a lot of works everyday, of course, I have family, friends, .., and important, I need to take rest too (I’m not a machine, lol). I’ve written detailed guide (picture guide and video guide will come soon) for Installing, Config, Command list, and for Bugs Reporting too. So please make sure you follow my Guide to install, got Crash ? Follow my guide to get logs and report to me, can’t talk with Sara ? Follow my command list for all available commands,.. etc. Thanks for your time !
Also, I think I will need 2 teams to help Sara: – Support team: Help user for installing, crashes, … – Review team: Take pictures/videos, or write review about Sara on forums/blogs/personal sites,… to avoid scammer who selling this (this happened when I release 0.1, some people copy this and sell this on ModMyI,… For everyone on this teams, I will give BIG SURPRISE GIFTS: Newest BETA updates and MORE ( it’s secret ; ) This task doesnt require much time from you, if you have free time (just some hours everyday) and like Sara, let’s join ! I’m appreciated !
Last, Sara is free for everyone, but her features need money (Actually, I have to use my money for paying, there is not small amount until now). So if you want to help Sara, lets donate some bucks for help me improve Sara’s answer speed, Sara’s voice quality, and more features in future. REMEMBER: I DO NOT MAKE MONEY ! JUST BECAUSE I AM NOT RICH MAN (lol), AND SOME BUCKS FROM YOU CAN HELP ME PAY FOR SARA. IT’S NOT REQUIRED AND NEVER REQUIRED.

Matt released Whited00r 5.1 for all devices. It features new reminders, and comes with 3store. It is available for all devices. Both normal and unlocked versions are available. If you are using the unlocked version you will need a push notification patch. If you are using Whited00r with your original carrier or if your phone is factory unlocked, use the normal version.
The appstore is still disabled. If you want the appstore back, you can vote here:
This version has the settings configurator disabled, until some bugs with it can be fixed. You can use the command line configurator by opening terminal, then typing:

This does NOT work on iOS 5.0!!!
Redsn0w 0.9.10 and Pwnage Tool 5.0.1 were finally released to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 untethered.
For all of you that are still on a tethered jailbreak, no need to restore. Just boot up Cydia and download Corona. Once you have installed it, reboot your device and you are now untethered!
Thank pod2g for working hard on the exploits and tricks to finally give us an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.
New tweak in Cydia called Siri0us can be downloaded from the repo:
This app is a mod for your iPhone to bring Siri to unsupported devices. The developer pulled the app for legal reasons but you you can still dowload it from the above repo and the deb file from here:
This app doesn’t work on iPhone 3GS’s with the old bootrom, so sorry.
Consumers who had owned a iPhone / iPod Touch with iOS 3.1.3 encounter some issues about downloading applications / software from Apple’s App Store directly from their beloved iPhone / iPod Touch. This kind of problem appeared after an update on December 16, 2011. According to most of the Whited00r forum and other forums, they reported the User Interface for the App Store appears to be in disarranged like images / screenshot are missing, buttons don’t work.
Start from yesterday, some of the whited00r forum users post that they are able to start download applications again from the App Store directly on their iPhone / iPod Touch on iOS 3.1.3. Looks like Apple are giving their best efforts to fix these things up while we are complaining. However, we still not sure this App Store’s problem still exsisting or had been fully recover?
But, since App Store start to works back on iOS 3.1.3 is such a good news to all legacy iPhone / iPod Touch users.

This week,many users posted about their Appstore problem,that they can not download apps from Appstore,can’t even click on Free button.
Note: THIS PROBLEM WAS NOT CAUSED BY WHITED00R’s CFW.
This was happened,because Apple changed some things in the Appstore and the changes caused this..If possible please report this problem in Appstore,so that Apple will fix it.And please do not make new topics on forums asking for this problem..
Post your Appstore problem here:
In some links,you may not find the download,because we need to protect our development from some other CFW communities,else they will steal the stuff.But you will find every feature in the firmware,so go and grab the latest firmware suitable for you iDevice only on
