A few years ago jailbreaking your iPhone was all the rage. The cat-and-mouse game of hackers versus Apple was great fun and some of the open source products available to jailbreakers – namely the Cydia alternative app store – added amazing features and customizability to the iPhone. Some devs even launched only on jailbroken phones, thumbing their noses at Apple’s walled garden.

Now, however, the jailbreak community is shriveling up and blowing away. Now two major repositories have closed, leaving very little for the active jailbreaker to install and run.

First ModMyi has closed, announcing that it didn’t make economic sense to maintain the repository:

Second, MaCiti closed last week, the result of a “death spiral” in jailbreak popularity.

The latest iOS version has not been jailbroken and, given the insecurities of running a jailbroken phone including unwanted terminal access into the phone itself, it’s not likely many will adopt it. Even the most popular service, JailBreakMe is sitting idle. That said, true fanatics aren’t giving up.

“With all the talking going around about ‘jailbreaking being dead’ or how it’s dying, I’m here to reassure everyone that this subreddit’s discord is still active every day,” wrote Aaronp613 on Reddit. “I know times have been a bit tough for everyone, but that just means we need to focus on what we have at the moment.”

Canterbury sign Ben Stokes as overseas player

Canterbury have signed England allrounder Ben Stokes as their overseas player. Stokes will be available for selection for Canterbury’s 50-over Ford Trophy match against Otago in Rangiora on Sunday.

Stokes’ inclusion was agreed upon by Canterbury Cricket Association and the ECB, and was sanctioned by New Zealand Cricket, a release from the association said. The Canterbury cricket board held an emergency meeting on Wednesday to discuss the prospect of signing Stokes.

Canterbury coach Gary Stead welcomed Stokes’ signing.

“After the approach from Ben’s representatives everything has happened very quickly for us to the extent that we are now delighted to welcome Ben into the team,” Stead said. “Ben will bring international experience to what is a relatively youthful changing room. He will also bring depth to our seam attack which has been affected by a string of injuries and provide more balance and firepower to our batting line up.

“While Ben awaits the outcome of an investigation underway in the UK, he wants to maintain his fitness and his connection with the game. He is a brilliant all-round player and we are really pleased to have secured one of the world’s best players in our domestic competition. His experience will be invaluable to our young cricketers as we look defend our Ford Trophy title and improve performances in the Burger King Super Smash. The team have expressed their excitement about the opportunity to learn from and play with Ben.”

Wednesday, the police said they had completed their investigation into the incident and had passed on a file to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for advice on whether Stokes should be charged.

The police also confirmed that a 27-year-old man suffered a fractured eye socket in the incident which occurred outside the Mbargo nightclub in the Clifton area of the city on the evening of England’s one-day international against West Indies on September 25.

Realistically, it looks most unlikely that Stokes will play any part in the Ashes series. Even if the CPS decide not to charge him – and that decision is expected to take two to three weeks – the ECB’s Cricket Discipline Commission and the ECB board would have to agree to any return.

The ECB board will meet within 48-hours of the CPS announcing their decision and discuss whether it is appropriate for Stokes to represent England. And, while any ban could be backdated – Stokes has already missed two ODIs at the end of the English summer as well as the first two Ashes Tests – it seems unlikely that any return could occur before the end of the Ashes series in little more than five weeks.

India seen posting stronger growth as businesses adjust to new tax

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India’s economic growth pace likely picked up in the three months ending in September, halting a five-quarter slide as businesses started to overcome teething troubles after the bumpy launch of a national sales tax.

The economy also has moved past the disruptions encountered after India’s shock ban on high-value banknotes in November 2016, economists say.

For July-September, the median in a Reuters poll of economists was for annual growth INGDPQ=ECI of 6.4 percent. Forecasts ranged from 5.9 percent to 6.8 percent.

If there was 6.4 percent growth, that would mark a sound acceleration from 5.7 percent in April-June, but still lag China’s 6.8 percent and Philippines’ 6.9 percent for the three months through September.

The data could help Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is facing criticism over the hasty July launch of Goods and Services Tax (GST) – aimed at transforming India’s 29 states into a single customs union – but hitting millions of small businesses due to complex rules and technical glitches.

Big companies have largely adjusted to the changes while benefiting from reduced logistics costs.

Prominent Indian firms had their best profit growth in last six quarters in July-September, according to Thomson Reuters data.

The results are an indication that firms are starting to recover after being hit earlier this year by uncertainty tied to the rollout of a new tax and a shock ban on cash in late 2016.

In July-September, auto sales, manufacturing, electricity generation grew more quickly than in the previous quarter.

“We expect a gradual recovery led by the industrial sector as businesses adjust to the GST regime,” said Aditi Nayar, an economist at ICRA, the Indian arm of Moody’s Investors Service.

RATINGS UPGRADE

On Nov. 17, Moody’s upgraded India’s sovereign credit rating for the first time in nearly 14 years, saying continued progress on economic and institutional reforms would boost its growth potential.

It expects the economy to grow 6.7 percent in the fiscal year ending March 31, and 7.5 percent the following year.

Many private-sector economists expect faster growth in the current quarter and January-March as consumers and businesses step up spending and global recovery gains traction.

Urjit Patel, governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), said last month that signs of an upturn were visible and growth was likely to top 7 percent in those quarters.

Modi’s administration hopes the ratings upgrade can attract more foreign investors, who pumped $15 billion into Indian equities in July-September, up 44 percent from the previous quarter. The main NSE share index .NSEI is up 27 percent in 2017.

Still, the world’s seventh largest economy, which grew at more than 9 percent a year from 2005 through 2008 is far from firing on all cylinders. Domestic demand and private investments remain weak.

After front-loading state spending in the fiscal year’s first half, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has limited room to spend amid slowing revenue growth.

Finance Ministry officials hope the central bank will cut interest rates soon, but analysts say that rising global oil prices, which could pinch consumers through higher inflation, may instead force the RBI to hike in the second half of 2018, denting growth momentum.

TRAI backs open internet

MUMBAI/NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India’s telecoms regulator made long-awaited recommendations on Tuesday to ensure an open internet and prevent any discrimination in internet access in the country.

After more than a year of debate, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said it opposed any “discriminatory treatment” of data, including blocking, slowing or offering preferential speeds or treatment to any content.

The Indian regulator’s support of so-called “net neutrality” stands in contrast to the recent stance taken by the chair of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

Last week, Ajit Pai, a Republican appointed by President Donald Trump in January, unveiled plans to rescind net neutrality rules championed by former President Barack Obama that treated internet service providers like public utilities.

In India, TRAI ruled in favor of net neutrality in February 2016 by prohibiting discriminatory tariffs for data, after an extended campaign by internet activists who argued that offerings such as Facebook’s (FB.O) free basics platform violated net neutrality principles.

The new regulations go a step further and recommend prohibiting any service provider from throttling data speeds.

“The core principles of net neutrality, non-discriminatory treatment of all content, treating internet as an open platform, we’ve upheld them,” TRAI Chairman RS Sharma said.

Idea Cellular Ltd (IDEA.NS), India’s third-biggest wireless carrier, said it would not comment on the recommendations, while Vodafone Group (VOD.L) said it would respond after studying the suggestions.

The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) – the telecom sector’s main lobby group, said in a statement it was “disappointed” TRAI did not adopt an industry recommendation to have a “wider approach to net neutrality”, noting its issues with “over-the-top” players were not considered.

Indian telecom providers have been hurt by a bruising local market price war around data charges, while over-the-top service providers that offer free international calling, like WhatsApp and Skype, have also hurt their bottom lines. 

In an apparent nod to the U.S. FCC’s new stance, COAI said, “At a time when, globally, countries are adopting a more market oriented, and market driven approach to net neutrality in order to not stifle development, innovation, proliferation and growth of the Internet, we believe TRAI should have adopted a light touch approach to net neutrality.”

Activists lobbying in favor of net neutrality said that while the recommendations were welcome, they needed to be put into license agreements.

“Our job is not done,” said Apar Gupta, a Supreme Court lawyer and co-founder of the Internet Freedom Foundation.

“It falls on the Department of Telecommunications to take the recommendations and turn them into licensing conditions to be put on telecom providers,” Gupta said, adding there was no time frame to implement the recommendations.

TRAI’s recommendations are the latest in India’s efforts to define net neutrality. In 2016, TRAI issued a pre-consultation paper on the hotly debated issue and followed it up with a consultation paper in January 2017.

Police ask Kerala interfaith couples: Is it love or terror?

NEW DELHI/KOCHI, India (Reuters) – The Supreme Court started hearing a case on Monday that prosecutors say shows how Islamic State sympathisers are using “Love Jihad” – marrying Hindu women and converting them to Islam – to win recruits and spread their message.

Over the past 28 months, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has picked up dozens of interfaith couples in Kerala to question them about their marriages.

The women – all Hindus who married Muslims – were asked “extremely personal” questions during the interrogations, two police officers from the agency said: “Did you sleep with your husband before getting married? Did he suggest you visit Islamic shrines before marriage? Did he blackmail you before you converted to Islam?”

They were looking for cases of “Love Jihad”, a term publicized by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and other hardline Hindu groups soon after they helped propel Prime Minister Narendra Modi to power in 2014. It refers to what these groups say is an Islamist campaign to convert Hindu women through seduction and marriage.

Police investigations at the time found no evidence of any organised strategy, and the claim was widely ridiculed. But since then, the NIA began focusing on Kerala – a state along the Arabian Sea with strong economic links to the Middle East.

It investigated 89 cases of “Love Jihad” and found nine to be alliances planned by people linked to the Islamic State, two NIA sources said, requesting anonymity because the investigation is going on.

The NIA will present evidence in the nine cases to the Supreme Court.

The agency declined to disclose its evidence. But in two of the cases it was examining money sent from an Islamic school in Iraq to the women’s bank accounts, and in another case a woman and her husband had shared IS videos among people in their Kerala village, the sources said.

RSS EXPANDING INFLUENCE

Opposition parties say the investigation shows the government is allowing the RSS and others to use the state apparatus to further an agenda of establishing Hindu dominance in India, where 13 percent of the population is Muslim.

M.B Rajesh, a central lawmaker and member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), which rules Kerala, said the NIA and the RSS were trying to prove that marriages between Hindus and Muslims “are forced unions”.

”The NIA’s probe is creating religious fault lines to help Modi’s party win (Kerala‘s) state elections, but we will defeat them.”

J. Nandakumar, an RSS leader who oversees the group’s activities in the state, said the NIA investigation vindicated the Hindu right’s campaign against religious conversions.

“Their first step is to convert Hindu boys and girls, hypnotise them and prepare them for jihad,” he said.

The RSS, which founded the first iteration of Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party six decades ago, believes India is fundamentally a Hindu nation.

Since Modi’s election in May 2014, the RSS has expanded its membership and influence across India and either it or its affiliates now run key ministries, such as the home ministry, which supervises the NIA, and the finance ministry.

Muslims — who account for 172 million of India’s 1.32 billion citizens – have been under increasing pressure from the Hindu right. Muslims have been lynched for killing cows – considered sacred in Hinduism – and some of their slaughter houses forced to shut down.

Neither Modi’s office nor the NIA would comment because the issue is before the Supreme Court.

   

‘SIMPLE LOVE STORY’ 

One of the Muslim men, whose marriage to a Hindu woman was annulled by Kerala’s High Court, has appealed the case to the Supreme Court.

The NIA has accused the man, Shefin Jahan, in court of trying to recruit people for the Islamic State, a charge he denies.

The 24-year-old woman, who converted to Islam before marrying him and changed her name from Akhila to Hadiya, was placed in her father’s custody by the high court after he said he feared for her well-being. There is no criminal case against her.

India’s chief justice summoned Hadiya to New Delhi to testify on Monday on whether she had been forced to convert.

In an interim order the Supreme Court removed Hadiya from her father’s custody and said she could live in a hostel to complete her college education. The trial will begin in January.

“This is for the first time in the history of India the top court will be asking a woman the validity of her marriage and her religious conversion,” said Kapil Sibal, a lawyer and a leader of the opposition Congress party. Sibal is representing Jahan.

Jahan, 26, told Reuters he met Hadiya through a matrimonial website for Muslims while he was working in a pharmaceutical factory in Oman. He said he wanted to live with his wife, with whom he stayed for only 48 hours before her father complained to the police.

“Our simple love story has turned into an ugly religious and legal battle,” Jahan said.

   

IS HOTBED OF RECRUITMENT

The NIA investigation started in 2015 after the government identified Kerala, which sends tens of thousands of workers to the Middle East, as a potential hotbed of Islamic State recruitment.

Nearly half of Kerala’s 33 million people practice Islam and Christianity. Police and the NIA said at least 100 people from Kerala have joined the IS in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The NIA’s nine “Love Jihad” cases were based on complaints lodged by the parents of the Hindu girls and all were found to have links with IS, the NIA police sources said. The agency dropped the investigations into the other 80 cases because no links to militants were found, the sources said.

Across India, more than 270 men and 20 women have been arrested for working directly or indirectly with the IS, according to data at the federal Home Ministry.

But Kerala was the only state where the NIA found a direct link between cases of “Love Jihad” and the IS, the NIA sources said.

The agency says it has uncovered attempts by IS sympathizers to possibly send the women in “Love Jihad” marriages off to marry or stay with fighters from the militant group, the NIA sources said.

Two couples, who were questioned by the NIA last year, told Reuters police searched their homes.

“I was shocked when they said maybe my husband was a jihadi, and he could be planning to send me to Syria,” said one woman who married a Muslim information technology professional in 2015.

Police questioned her for six hours, she said, and before leaving, took pictures of her wedding album.

This might be the end of iPhone jailbreaking – BGR

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on This might be the end of iPhone jailbreaking – BGR
Nov
27

Not long ago, jailbreaking was all the rage among iPhone power users. iOS had always been more closed off than Android, and the only way to bring additional functionality to an iOS device was to jailbreak it, which countless users did throughout the first several iPhone generations. But despite the fact that U.S. Copyright Office now allows iPhone users to jailbreak their phones, the once common practice appears to be on its last legs.

If you’ve ever jailbroken an iPhone, you’re undoubtedly familiar with Cydia — an App Store replacement that allows iPhone users with jailbroken devices to download apps and tools from a variety of sources. A vast majority of the apps available on Cydia came from three major repositories, but as of this week, two have been shuttered for good.

“While it’s true that I promised that we will keep the repository alive, the costs of running the repository have been higher than estimated and it kept growing,” explained ModMy editor-in-chief Dennis Bednarz. “Not all promises can be kept and I won’t try to blur your vision and try to excuse myself. I have failed you and I am terribly sorry for doing so. I tried my best, but it wasn’t enough. We only hope that this won’t result in us losing your trust.”

The untimely death of the ModMyi repository came just days after ZodTTD/MacCiti announced that it would be ceasing operations as well. Although jailbreaking hasn’t been entirely snuffed out, the combination of declining public interest and the fact that many of the best reasons to jailbreak an iPhone have been addressed by subsequent iOS releases has given developers who create jailbreaks far less impetus to crack the newest versions of iOS.

Over two months after launched, iOS 11 still doesn’t have a public jailbreak. Apple has made it more and more difficult to jailbreak its software every year, and with so few people pining for a new jailbreak, there’s a chance we’ll never see one for iOS 11. It was a good run, but for the time being, iPhone jailbreaks have run their course.

England coach Trevor Bayliss frustrated by players’ ‘dumb’ decisions

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on England coach Trevor Bayliss frustrated by players’ ‘dumb’ decisions
Nov

The England team “have to be smarter” about how they go about life off the field, the coach Trevor Bayliss had said.

Bayliss was clearly angry and disappointed after allegations of an altercation involving Jonny Bairstow emerged at the end of the fourth day of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane.

While the incident itself turned out to be more of an oddity than an altercation – Bairstow greeted Cameron Bancroft with a well-meaning but somewhat bizarre headbutt when they saw each other in a Perth bar almost a month ago; the pair then enjoyed a few drinks together – Bayliss was disappointed that it appeared to have destabilised his side and increased pressure upon them in a series which has started with a defeat.

Although Bayliss confirmed that Bairstow had not broken any curfew and that there would be no disciplinary action against him, he suggested his players had made some “dumb decisions” in recent times and admitted there would be a review of the team’s self-imposed code of conduct. The introduction of curfews and, perhaps, a ban on alcohol, might have to be considered.

“It has given not just the Australian team but the media the chance to get involved with stuff other than cricket,” Bayliss said. “That’s the disappointing thing and that’s what we’ve got to be better at. We can’t put ourselves in these situations however small they are. It’s a distraction.

“We want to get on with the cricket. But it has given the opposition ammunition to put pressure on as well. We are here to play cricket and we have to find a way to play as well as we can and have no distractions from outside that.

“There was no malice in it and Jonny did not break the code of conduct we had in place before this [but] I’m sure there will be a review of that. Probably we will tighten up curfews. I’m sure there will be further discussion between management and players.

“We have to be smarter. Most people like going out at night for couple of quiet ones, but you have to be careful you don’t do anything stupid. If that means not having anything to drink then so be it.”

The irritation for Bayliss is that the incident occurred so soon after the Ben Stokes episode. Already missing his team’s key all-rounder, he was shocked there should be further unnecessary drama on the first night of the tour.

Australian team for taking the opportunity to “get under Jonny’s skin” suggesting England would probably have done the same thing in their position. Indeed, they certainly did so after David Warner hit Joe Root in a Birmingham bar.

“They probably mentioned it to get under Jonny’s skin,” Bayliss said, “as I’m sure we might have done a few years ago in England.

“It’s an opportunity. Any team will take any opportunity to get stuck into the opposition and make them feel uncomfortable wherever possible. If you put yourself in that situation, you are fair game. We have to be careful we don’t do that in future.”

NEW DELHI/ KOCHI, India (Reuters) – The Supreme Court will begin hearing a case on Monday that prosecutors say shows how Islamic State sympathisers are using “Love Jihad” – marrying Hindu women and converting them to Islam – to win recruits and spread their message.

Over the past 28 months, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has picked up dozens of interfaith couples in the southern state of Kerala to question them about their marriages.

    Neither Modi’s office nor the NIA would comment because the issue is before the Supreme Court.

   

    ‘SIMPLE LOVE STORY’ 

    One of the Muslim men, whose marriage to a Hindu woman was annulled by Kerala’s High Court, has appealed the case to the Supreme Court.

    The NIA has accused the man, Shefin Jahan, in court of trying to recruit people for the Islamic State, a charge he denies.

The 24-year-old woman, who converted to Islam before marrying him and changed her name from Akhila to Hadiya, was placed in her father’s custody by the high court after he said he feared for her well-being. There is no criminal case against her.

    India’s chief justice has summoned Hadiya to New Delhi to testify on Monday on whether she was converted forcefully. The lower court had rejected her husband’s request to have her testify.

“This is for the first time in the history of India the top court will be asking a woman the validity of her marriage and her religious conversion,” said Kapil Sibal, a lawyer and a leader of the opposition Congress party. Sibal is representing Jahan.

    Jahan, 26, told Reuters he met Hadiya through a matrimonial website for Muslims while he was working in a pharmaceutical factory in Oman. He said he wants to live with his wife, with whom he stayed for only 48 hours before her father complained to the police.

    “Our simple love story has turned into an ugly religious and legal battle,” Jahan said.

   

    IS HOTBED OF RECRUITMENT

    The NIA’s probe started in 2015 after the government identified Kerala, which sends tens of thousands of workers to the Middle East, as a potential hotbed of Islamic State recruitment. Nearly half of Kerala’s 33 million people practice Islam and Christianity. Local police and the NIA said at least 100 people from Kerala have joined the IS in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The NIA’s nine “Love Jihad” cases were based on complaints lodged by the parents of the Hindu girls and all were found to have links with IS, the NIA police sources said. The agency dropped the investigations into the other 80 cases because no links to militants were found, the sources said.

    Across India, over 270 men and 20 women have been arrested for working directly or indirectly with the IS, according to data at the federal Home Ministry. But Kerala was the only state where the NIA found a direct link between cases of “Love Jihad” and the IS, the NIA sources said.

    The agency says it has uncovered attempts by IS sympathizers to possibly send the women in “Love Jihad” marriages off to marry or stay with fighters from the militant group, the NIA sources said.

Two couples, who were questioned by the NIA last year, told Reuters police searched their homes.

    “I was shocked when they said maybe my husband was a jihadi, and he could be planning to send me to Syria,” said one woman who married a Muslim information technology professional in 2015.

    Police questioned her for six hours, she said, and before leaving, took pictures of her wedding album.

Ajay Devgn’s latest horror-comedy ‘Golmaal Again’ has set the cash registers ringing at the box-office. The cast of the film is basking in the glory of the film’s success.

Among the people who loved the film is none other than Ajay’s son Yug. So much is he in awe of the film that the young lad insisted on watching the film all over again with his friends and family.

Doting dad Ajay reportedly made it a point to make this happen by arranging a special screening of the film on Thursday with Yug playing the host. The actor was snapped sporting a white casual shirt while his wife Kajol chose to wear white Kurta for the screening.

Directed by Rohit Shetty, ‘Golmaal Again’ has been garnering appreciation from all the quarters. Apart from Ajay, it also stars Tabu, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, Shreyas Talpade and Kunal Kemmu.
