iOS 5 Jailbreak and New MacBook Pros Launching

iOS 5 Jailbreak Goes from 210 Seconds to 80

The iPhone Dev Team has released a new Redsn0w beta which no longer ‘stashes’ applications automatically, reducing the jailbreak time by as much as 60 percent for those who choose to turn off this option.

According to a new entry over at the Team’s blog, “After some feedback on reddit, we’ve decided to make the initial jailbreak as quick as possible by no longer ‘stashing’ the applications by default during the redsn0w run.”

“This reduces the time to actually perform the jailbreak from 210 seconds to 80 seconds (60 percent!). However, you make up for much of that the first time you launch Cydia, which will then want to stash the applications,” writes the Team “You can choose whether you want redsn0w or Cydia to stash in the Preferences pane.”

On Twitter, Musclenerd informs that iOS 5 beta expires today offering those who wish to sync their data a limited-edition redsn0w b7b.

New MacBook Pros Launching Next Week - Report

People in a position to know have received word that Apple is gearing up to launch updated MacBook Pro computers as soon as next week. A modified AirPort Express model with new wireless chips is also in the pipeline, the sources said.

A report by 9to5mac cites a certain Mr. X who has been accurate on Apple rumors in the past.

This person reportedly told the blog that the pricing and design of the upcoming MacBook Pros are identical to those of the current-generation models.

However, inside, the systems are beefed up (naturally). There has been ongoing speculation that the MacBook Pro family is getting a processor speed bump and Bluetooth 4.0 technology ahead of the holiday season.

For example, Apple’s online store went down this week prompting such speculation to reignite. When the online venue was put back on track, no changes could be observed. Apple almost always takes down its online store ahead of a new product launch, or upgrade.

The speculation about new MacBook Pros emerged when new part numbers were spotted in Apple’s inventory system. They matched the MacBook Pro family, but they didn’t match any existing models, therefore new systems had to be on the way.

Knowing that Apple will at some point upgrade the MacBook Pro lineup with Ivy Bridge processors and perhaps a slimmer design akin to the MacBook Air, the fall-winter 2011 update would act as a gap filler between the current architecture and the next.

As for the AirPort Express update, the same report says that a modified version of the WiFi base station is on the way packing updated wireless chips but otherwise no aesthetic alterations.

The price will also be the same, according to their sources, but the launch date remains unknown at this time.
