Since the iPhone was released Apple has always insisted that iOS has been developed as a closed platform in order to protect users from dangerous malware. Tech-savvy users didn’t agree and they created Jailbreak versions of iOS that allow you to install apps form external sources and a variety of useful tweaks.

Jailbreak has been viewed negatively by Apple since the very first iterations were released. The Cupertino company has continued to increase iOS security as it tries to block the development of new Jailbreak versions. Its latest attempts are quite successful since there is no Jailbreak version beyond iOS 11.3.1 while the latest official version is iOS 12.0.1.

The war wages on as Apple will no longer sign iOS 12.0.1. The change will restrict users that decide to update to iOS 12 as they will no longer be able to revert to a previous version. While the change won’t affect average users those that prefer to use Jailbreak versions will be upset.

Most users have already switched to iOS 12 in order to enjoyed new features like Group Face Time, improved battery life and performance and a host of other useful features.

The Jailbreak scene has been trying to crack iOS 12 for a while but the chances of succeeding are quite slim. A few names announced that they have managed to jailbreak iOS 12 but refused to offer the image filefor public use, a decision that may hint towards a different reality.

A number of sites have surfaced in the last weeks claiming to offer one-tap solutions that allow you to Jailbreak devices that have been already upgraded to iOS 12. In most cases the solution is either paid or it features in-app purchases that can go up to $20.

According to the professional Jailbreak scene you should avoid them since they are nothing more than scams designed to hustle you into paying for a non-functional app at best and harmful malware in the worst case.

Two arrested at MSL match over suspected involvement in ‘betting activity’

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Two arrested at MSL match over suspected involvement in ‘betting activity’

5:46 AM ET

Two men were arrested at Kingsmead in Durban on Friday, during the Mzansi Super League (MSL) match between Durban Heat and Jozi Stars, amid concerns about their possible involvement with “betting activity”. They were released on bail after being charged with trespassing.

The two British citizens were reportedly watching the match from a hospitality suite at the ground when the arrests happened. This is the second such incident at an MSL game, after organisers confirmed that two other men were arrested at the beginning of the tournament, during Paarl Rocks’ home game against Tshwane Spartans at Boland Park on November 18.

CSA chief executive Thabang Moroe suggested that MSL organisers were closely monitoring instances of spectators at grounds relaying live information to assist gambling operations – a practice known as “court-siding”. He said anti-corruption protocols had been enhanced during the MSL and also called on fans attending games to be vigilant and to report any betting-related activities.

“The protocols included the sighting of any person deemed to be engaging in betting activities or the facilitation of betting activities within stadiums,” Moroe said. “Such persons will be removed from the stadium and face possible arrest.

“With the use of enhanced technology, match-fixers are using people posing as fans in the stadium to relay live data to illegal betting houses functioning abroad. To prevent such activities, we have strengthened our in-stadium monitoring and protection capabilities, including the active surveillance of crowd activities.

“Cricket-loving fans will recognise the risk that corrupt activities present to the game. We call on all fans to assist us in reporting any ‘live’ betting-related activities from any viewing areas within the stadium so that these can be monitored and addressed.”

The pair arrested in Durban had allegedly already been banned by CSA from attending any fixtures. The two, said to be businessmen aged 34 and 35, were taken to Durban Central police station after their arrest and charged with trespassing, and subsequently released on R500 (USD35) bail each. They are being represented by attorney Roy Singh.

“If my clients were banned by CSA, why did they sell tickets to them?” Singh was quoted as saying by IOL. “While in the suite, security officials pounced on them and questioned them about their attendance, as they said they were banned. They were also interrogated by CSA officials about sports betting and match-fixing.

“At the police station, I was able to show the officers that there was no evidence in their possession to prove that my clients were involved with match-fixing or sports betting and I asked for them to be released.

“My clients believe the authorities acted on hearsay evidence that they were involved with sports betting and match-fixing, which eventually led to their arrest. Therefore, they’ve asked me to pursue the matter with the high court.”

Assembly election results could halt Prime Minister Modi’s winning streak

Dec

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi is staring at election losses in big heartland states, polls show, suggesting that farm distress and a lack of jobs for growing numbers of young people could prove stumbling blocks for his re-election bid in May.

India counts votes on Tuesday from five states that chose new assemblies over the past month, but exit polls show Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) could lose the three most important races, while it has little presence in two smaller states dominated by regional parties.

The loss would be the biggest for Modi’s Hindu nationalists since they swept to power in 2014 general elections, followed by wins over the past four years in 22 of India’s 29 states, on promises of thousands of jobs and a doubling in farm income.

Politicians view state polls, though they are usually decided by regional issues, as a pointer to the mood of the BJP’s traditional voting base, ahead of a general election that must be held by May.

“The results will set the tone for the 2019 election,” said Sachin Pilot, a leader of the main opposition Congress party.

Congress is tipped to win in Rajasthan, scrape through in Chhattisgarh and is locked in a photo finish with the BJP in Madhya Pradesh. Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh are among India’s biggest states.

“The BJP has made a lot of tall claims about income, jobs etc,” Pilot added. “They came out with 28 slogans, ‘Swachh Bharat’ (‘Clean India’), ‘Make in India’ and such, but how many were implemented?”

Modi remains the frontrunner for the general election, however, trailed in personal ratings by his main challenger, Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

Modi promised to clean up India and turn it into a top tourist destination as well as lift the share of manufacturing in its economy to a quarter of gross domestic product, following the example of China.

But it has grown only slightly, to 17 percent, with nearly all the ambitious clean-up programmes for cities and the river Ganges, as well as the Make-in-India campaign to build a domestic industrial base, largely unfulfilled.

Anger over weak farm prices, slow growth in rural wages and small businesses hit by a new nationwide goods and service tax has also boiled over, provoking protests by tens of thousands of farmers in Delhi and Mumbai.

Although the BJP might drop a few seats because of anti-incumbency sentiment, it was not losing everything, as some surveys forecast, said party spokesman G.V.L. Narasimha Rao.

“They have underassessed the BJP,” he added. “They have done it previously too.”

Surveys often prove wrong, partly because it is tough to forecast the outcome of elections involving India’s millions of voters.

HINDU FIRST

Still, a poor performance could prompt the BJP to push its brand of Hindu nationalism harder, politicians and analysts say.

“The BJP campaign will focus on nationalism, Hindutva and corruption,” said Shekhar Gupta, a political analyst, using a term that refers to the party’s Hindu-first plank.

Hindus make up about 80 percent of India’s population of 1.3 billion, while Muslims are about 14 percent.

Already hardline groups associated with the party have reignited their campaign for a temple to the god-king Rama at a site where Hindu zealots razed a 16th-century mosque in 1992.

Thousands of Hindu monks and activists linked to the BJP gathered in New Delhi on Sunday in a show of force to back the temple.

Hindu fringe groups have stepped up a campaign against the slaughter of cows, which many in India consider sacred, as vigilante groups target Muslims in the livestock trade.

Modi is expected to try to recover political ground with giveaways in the next few months for small businesses and farmers, who make up a big chunk of voters.

“The state elections will be seen as a litmus test of Modi’s popularity,” said Simon Finch, fund manager at London-based Ashburton Investments.

“However, we would expect any blemishes to be met with a continuation of the populist measures increasingly evident during the past four years.”

If the BJP did well, that would be a further catalyst for the market, said Mike Sell, head of Asian investments at asset management firm Alquity, who sees Modi’s economic measures, such as a unified goods and services tax, eventually paying off.

“Even if they did badly, they wouldn’t make us do anything negative and we will use any weakness as a buying opportunity.”

Thomson, du Plessis keep Rocks alive with close win

Dec

Paarl Rocks 172 for 4 (Thomson 71*, du Plessis 61, Olivier 3-30) beat Jozi Stars 170 for 6 (Van der Dussen 83*, Mungroo 3-29) by six wickets

Having totaled 17 runs and one wicket until Sunday, Grant Thomson left behind his mark in the 2018-19 Mzansi Super League with a courageous 71 not out to keep Paarl Rocks alive in the competition, after a tight chase against Jozi Stars at the New Wanderers Stadium. Barring a reprieve owing to a missed stumping on the ball before he hit the winning runs – which arrived via a crunching extra cover drive – Thomson played a mature, and largely composed innings, giving the Rocks, facing a must-win, victory with three balls to spare.

Contributing in equal measure to the win was Faf du Plessis, who continued to dominate bowling attacks with his third half-century in four matches. While Thomson crucially stayed until the end, it was du Plessis who provided Rocks with the impetus to their chase, launching a barrage of boundaries in a domineering display that gave them the security against a brief death-overs stutter and come out unscathed.

Cricket: Ashwin strikes to remove Finch as Australia chase 323

Dec

ADELAIDE (Reuters) – Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin removed opening batsman Aaron Finch in the last over before tea to leave Australia 28 for one in pursuit of 323 for victory on day four of the first test on Sunday.

Finch was given out caught by wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant for 11 after the ball whistled by his glove but was in two minds as to whether to review the decision at Adelaide Oval.

After conferring with fellow opener Marcus Harris, he trudged off without appealing but the technology showed no clear evidence that he had gloved the ball.

Harris was 14 not out, with number three Usman Khawaja expected to join him after the break.

Bowled for a third-ball duck by Ishant Sharma in the first innings, Finch was earlier saved from a second-ball duck off the same bowler after he was trapped in front and given out lbw.

He reviewed that decision more in hope than conviction and the replay showed the paceman had overstepped the mark.

The wicket was otherwise confirmed by the technology, leaving Ishant in bitter dismay.

The openers had pulled Australia within 295 runs of victory at a venue where the highest successful fourth innings chase was the 315 the hosts scored to reel in England in 1902.

India had earlier resumed at 260 for five after lunch in complete control but squandered the chance to bat Australia out of the match with a quick and shambolic collapse.

Pant smashed spinner Nathan Lyon for three fours and a huge slog-sweep for six over deep square in consecutive balls but was out for 28 off Lyon’s next delivery, sending a mistimed slog straight to Finch at deep cover point.

Ashwin survived a difficult stumping chance off Lyon but made little of the reprieve, pulling Mitchell Starc straight to Harris at deep backward point to be out for five.

Ajinkya Rahane threw away his wicket for 70 with a reverse sweep off Lyon to backward point where Starc jogged across to take a simple catch.

Lyon was on a hat-trick when Mohammed Shami tried to slog him over his head but managed only to sky the ball to Harris at deep midwicket.

Starc wrapped up the innings with his third victim when Ishant was out for a duck, popping up a catch in close after failing to deal with a short ball.

Dramatic draw for East Zone against Central Zone

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Dramatic draw for East Zone against Central Zone

Bad light in Bogra thwarted East Zone when they had reached within six runs of their 326-run target against Central Zone. The umpires called off play eight minutes after the scheduled 5:00pm ending, and announced that the match was drawn a little while later. It prompted some to protest from the East Zone dressing room.

East Zone had reached 320 for 7 in the fourth innings riding on Mahmudul Hasan‘s maiden first-class century, in his tenth year of first-class cricket. His 135 contained 12 fours, having faced 242 balls in just over six hours. He added 103 for the third wicket with Mohammad Ashraful, who made 64 with eight fours and two sixes. Towards the end, Enamul Haque jnr and Abu Jayed had added 27 for the unbroken eighth wicket stand when the umpires judged it had become too dark to play.

On the first day, Farhad Reza‘s career-best figures of 7 for 32 had helped bowl out Central Zone for 118. East Zone then took a 68-run lead after they were bowled out for 186, with seamer Shahidul Islam taking 5 for 62.

Shahidul was also one of five batsmen to make half-centuries as Central Zone hit back with 393 all out in their second innings. Pinak Ghosh, Abdul Mazid, Marshall Ayub and Taibur Rahman were the others to hit fifties, though no batsman made more than 70. Ashraful took 4 for 34 with his leg-breaks.

There was a less dramatic draw between North Zone and South Zone in Chattogram. Batting first, South Zone were bowled out for 329 with Raqibul Hasan making 79, Mahedi Hasan hitting 63 not out and Tushar Imran contributing 62. Left-arm spinner Sunzamul Islam took 5 for 87. North Zone replied with 394 all out, a lead of 65 runs. Junaid Siddique lasted a minute short of seven hours while compiling 112 off 307 balls with just two fours. He added 162 for the third wicket with Naeem Islam, who made 83. Ziaur Rahman then gave the innings momentum with 90 off 144 balls, hitting 11 fours and three sixes. He added 117 for the sixth wicket with Dhiman Ghosh, who scored 51. Veteran left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak took 6 for 126.

South Zone ended the game on 248 for 5 in their second innings. Anamul Haque made 66 while Mahedi was unbeaten on 60, while Al-Amin made 75 not out.

ADELAIDE (Reuters) – Australia’s pacemen hit back with two late wickets after India’s batsmen started positively to push Virat Kohli’s team to 101-run lead at tea on day three of the first test on Saturday.

Josh Hazlewood had Lokesh Rahul caught behind for 44 after pace spearhead Starc dismissed Murali Vijay for 18 to end a 63-run opening stand at Adelaide Oval, after the home side were bowled out for 235 in the rain-hit first session.

Number three Cheteshwar Pujara was 11 not out, with captain Kohli on two, and an intriguing test match delicately poised under a cloudy sky.

Protecting India’s first innings total of 250, Kohli’s bowlers did well to carve out an initial 15-run lead, getting through Australia’s final three wickets for the cost of 44 runs after the home side resumed on 191 for seven following a rain-delayed start.

India seamer Mohammed Shami was on a hat-trick after claiming the final two wickets of batsman Travis Head (72) and number 11 Josh Hazlewood (0) in successive balls.

Starc was the first wicket to fall, caught behind off seamer Jasprit Bumrah, who finished with 3-47.

Nathan Lyon was left 24 not out, having played a handy cameo with Head.

Dismissed for two in the first innings to extend a lean run of scores, Rahul came out with positive intent and saw off Starc and Hazlewood’s opening spell before taking to Pat Cummins.

He smashed a drive for six over deep cover off Australia’s first-change bowler and another square drive for four in the same over.

The recalled Vijay was never quite so settled, however, and he was out for 18 chasing a wider delivery that was caught by Peter Handscomb at second slip.

Pujara, who scored a sparkling 123 to rescue India in their first innings total of 250, was given out after an appeal for caught behind off Lyon but over-turned the decision on review.

Australia’s disappointment was short-lived, however, as Rahul threw away his wicket moments later with an ill-advised swipe at a Hazlewood which served only to send a nick flying through to wicketkeeper-captain Tim Paine.

Ashley Giles in line to replace Andrew Strauss as England men’s team director

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Ashley Giles in line to replace Andrew Strauss as England men’s team director
Dec

6:31 AM ET

Ashley Giles remains a strong favourite to replace Andrew Strauss as director of England men’s cricket after the field of candidates thinned out considerably.

Despite reports to the contrary elsewhere, Andy Flower, Martyn Moxon and Tom Moody have all informed ESPNcricinfo they are not pursuing an interest in the role. Clare Connor ruled herself out in the early stages, while Wasim Khan has instead accepted an offer to move to Lahore as MD of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

That leaves a field that includes Giles, currently director of sport at Warwickshire; Mick Newell, the Nottinghamshire director of cricket; Mark Nicholas, the writer, broadcaster and former captain of Hampshire, and Ronnie Irani, the former England all-rounder.

While Giles and Irani are understood to have been offered interviews by the ECB – one has taken place; the other is next week – Nicholas is understood to be mulling over an approach from a headhunter and has yet to fully commit to the process. Candidates have been required to put together a presentation to the ECB before the interview.

Strauss decided to step down after his wife was diagnosed with cancer. Flower has filled the role in an interim capacity.

If Giles is appointed it would complete a remarkable comeback. He was sacked by Paul Downton, the England team director at the time, as England’s limited-overs coach at the start of 2014 – barely six months after leading England to the brink of their first global ODI trophy – but has subsequently lead Lancashire and Warwickshire to trophies (The T20 Blast at Lancashire in 2015 and the Division Two title at Warwickshire in 2018) and served on several ECB working parties. He has also worked as an England selector, is an Ashes winner and led Warwickshire to the Championship title as coach in 2012.

Irani offers strong competition, though. As chairman of Essex’s cricket committee, he was in a large part responsible for the club embracing a home-grown policy that helped them win the Championship in 2017 and helped the club sustain their excellent reputation for developing players. He also has a business background which will be deemed important for an ECB that is keen to cut costs across the board and at Loughborough in particular.

The ECB hope to have someone in place before England head to the Caribbean in January, though an announcement next week is more than possible.

Government meets with WhatsApp over tracing of fake news

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Indian tech ministry officials met with senior WhatsApp executives this week to ask the Facebook Inc (FB.O) unit to start tracing the origins of misinformation spread through its messaging platform, a senior government official said on Friday.

WhatsApp has been working to curb the circulation of what technology minister Ravi Shankar Prasad termed “sinister” content in India, the firm’s biggest market where it boasts over 220 million users.

Such misinformation has led to the lynching of over 30 people since January last year, according to data portal IndiaSpend, prompting Prasad to call on WhatsApp to trace its origins.

WhatsApp has previously declined to trace the origin of messages, citing security issues.

“We have been asking them for traceability,” said the official at the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, declining to be identified as the meeting was private. “They (WhatsApp) are non-committal on it but we are forcing this issue.”

WhatsApp was represented by Director Associate General Counsel Brian Hennessy and one other executive, and said it was working on measures to prevent the spread of misinformation, according to the official.

“WhatsApp regularly engages with the Government of India to discuss our commitment to maintaining a private and safe platform for people to communicate with one another,” the firm said in a statement. “We look forward to continued discussions on how we can work together toward these common goals.”

WhatsApp maintains that building traceability into its messaging service would undermine its private nature and end-to-end encryption, creating the potential for misuse. It has also said it will not weaken the privacy protection it provides.

The firm has since launched print, radio and television advertising campaigns to educate users on the dangers of misinformation. It is also conducted roadshows in partnership with mobile phone network provider Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd.

WhatsApp has held digital literacy training for community leaders and law enforcement as well as introduced features on its app such as limits on message forwarding and labels for forwarded messages.
