First iOS 13 Beta Jailbreak Surfaces On The Internet

iOS and jailbreak go hand in hand. Many hackers and developers jailbreak their iOS devices to add features not provided by the iPhone maker company. You can read more about iOS jailbreak here.

In the latest development, as opposed to online rumors that iOS 13 will be jailbreak-proof, a developer has managed to jailbreak the latest iOS beta update.

Apple is yet to release a stable version of iOS 13 and it’s the first beta that has been jailbroken. A developer going by the Twitter handle @iBSparkes has teased a photo of jailbroken iOS 13 running on iPhone 8 and Cydia, a popular app store for jailbroken phones, installed on it.

However, the developer behind jailbreaking iOS 13 has not made the jailbreak public but has hinted that the latest iOS update is also vulnerable to jailbreaking contrary to expectations.

Jailbreaking an early iOS beta release isn’t anything significant as there are chances that Apple might fix the vulnerability by the time it releases the Golden Master iOS update.

Nonetheless, it gives hope to those who look forward to unleashing the capabilities of iOS by jailbreaking it and adding features that are not offered by Apple.

Apple will likely release the first stable version of iOS 13 by late August or early September. You can check out the 13 best features of iOS 13 here.

Afghanistan’s World Cup of self-inflicted chaos

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Afghanistan’s World Cup of self-inflicted chaos

Don’t do this, Afghanistan. There is another way.

There are alternatives to letting chaos overwhelm you. There are brighter timelines, waiting to be seized, in which dysfunction does not define your World Cup. Your opponents, South Africa, might be battling demons from their past. Elsewhere, the likes of Sri Lanka are groaning under the weight of their galactic-scale ineptitude – their manager having recently complained to the ICC about pitches, the team bus, hotels, training facilities, and probably about the photo on his official accreditaiton making him look chubby when all the other managers look sharp and handsome. But there is no reason to follow these established sides down the moronic paths they have picked out for themselves. You can be better. You should at least try.

In this World Cup so far, though, perhaps you have been the most defective outfit, saved only from more intensive media scrutiny by low expectations. Twice in two matches now, oppositions have shellacked Afghanistan with the ball, then punched the lights out with the bat. A trend has developed – a hopeful opening stand ended by a shot of breathtaking daftness, followed by a middle order that falls over like rows of library shelves crashing into each other, before the lower order looks as if it is rolling up its sleeves and readying itself for a fight, before promptly turning heel and fleeing the moment they see the size of the other guy.

WATCH on Hotstar (India only) – Full highlights

But there can be a universe in which Hazratullah Zazai does not spot a bouncer from the uber-quick Kagiso Rabada, and hole out attempting to clear the one deep fielder on the leg side, at deep square leg. The success percentage of that shot is so poor, it is possibly lower than the number of teams the ICC is planning to admit to their next World Cup. There can be a future match, in which wickets three, four, five, six and seven don’t fall in the space of eight runs, multiple batsmen basically tripping over each other in their race back to the pavilion. Only Rashid Khan, with his 35 off 25, gave the innings some semblance of professionalism.

Then there is the selection. Maybe folks who make these decisions feel that normal rules don’t apply to Afghanistan. It’s not hard to see why they might. This team has risen to compete at a 10-team World Cup when 20 years ago, there was really no such thing as Afghan cricket. This is plainly astonishing. That Afghanistan are the only nation at the tournament not to have either borne or applied the yoke of the British empire also makes them exceptional.

But not so exceptional, that, you know, basic logic does not apply. You inexplicably drop your tournament top-scorer – a batsman who hit Afghanistan’s only half-century against Australia, and made the team’s best score in another game – and you should expect to weaken your top order. Najibullah Zadran‘s replacement in this match was Asghar Afghan, the jilted captain (its own little controversy). Instead of a batsman who has twice given substance to Afghanistan’s innings this tournament, you had one who hit his fifth ball back to bowler Imran Tahir.

Captain Gulbadin Naib’s justification was that Asghar was the senior player, and that he commanded a place in the top order the moment he became fit again. Okay, but Afghanistan had failed to make 200 in two matches on the trot. When you have a buffet of misfiring batsmen to choose from, why drop the guy in form? What next from the shooting-yourself-in-the-foot playbook? Batsmen have to hold the bat with their teeth? Bowlers have to do “the worm” to the bowling crease instead of running up? Fielders have to fill their pants with rocks to weigh themselves down?

These are not serious suggestions, by the way, Afghanistan. You don’t have to do any of this.

On the field, Afghanistan engaged in yet more shambolism. Asghar failed to account for the spin on a ball coming to him at third man, toppled over like grain silo when he tried to correct his course, and ended up not getting a hand on the ball, which dribbled mockingly past him to the boundary. Rahmat Shah misjudged the trajectory of a ball at midwicket, ran in for a catch that he might not have made with five-metre long hands, and ended up letting the ball skid over the rope. There were more misfields, overthrows, on-field gesticulating, and a general air of despair over the performance.

exit from the World Cup, and rumours that administrative interference is contributing to all this on-field bungling. Their campaign is teetering, but it doesn’t have to be this way. They don’t have to fall spectacularly to pieces on cricket’s biggest stage, like Sri Lanka in 1999, or India and Pakistan in 2007, or England in 2015, 2007, 2003, 1999 and so on.

The established cricket world tends toward farce. The bigger nations are either sacking coaches with every new moon, having their boards strung up in the courts for serious breaches, alienating vast swathes of their own populations by embracing elitism, facing serious credibility problems in the aftermath of cheating scandals, or fighting constantly with their own players. Afghanistan don’t have to follow suit. But right now it seems like they are.

Cricket: Shine against India, enter folklore

MANCHESTER (Reuters) – Sunday’s World Cup match against arch-rivals India is a gilt-edged opportunity for every Pakistani player to etch his name into cricketing folklore, coach Mickey Arthur said.

The soldout clash will be Pakistan’s seventh attempt to beat India in a 50-over World Cup match and South African Arthur has reminded them the bigger rewards that await them if they can break the jinx.

As bilateral cricket remains suspended because of political tensions, the neighbours meet each other only in ICC events with emotions running high in both countries.

“It doesn’t get more exciting,” Arthur said of the hotly-anticipated contest at Old Trafford.

“I’m telling our players in the dressing room, ‘you could be a hero tomorrow. Your careers are going to be defined by a moment in the game. You do something incredible tomorrow, you’ll be remembered forever.

“Our mantra is ‘how do you want to be remembered?’ We’ve got 15 incredible cricketers in that dressing room, and we keep stressing to them ‘how do you want to be remembered? You’re the class of 2019. What are they going to say about you in history?’

“And tomorrow presents an unbelievable opportunity for these guys to really make a mark.”

Arthur’s approach was in contrast to that of India captain Kohli, who sought to play down the hype around the match.

Inconsistency has again plagued Pakistan’s campaign with Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men shocking hosts England but going down to West Indies and Australia.

The “perfect match” that Arthur demands from his team has not materialised but their victory over India in the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy at the Oval could be an inspiration for Pakistan.

“That’s a long time ago. We’re concentrating at the moment on our own games because we know, if we put three disciplines together, we can beat anybody in the world,” Arthur said.

“We haven’t put the perfect game together yet. Our disciplines have been good with the bat, have been okay with the ball and okay in the field. If we put the perfect game together, we can beat everybody.”

Arthur took charge of a mercurial Pakistan side in 2016 following his stints with South Africa and Australia.

Since then, the 51-year-old said, he has tried to bring in more consistency but was not too unhappy with the side being branded “unpredictable”.

“I like to think we’ve become a lot more structured as a team. I think there’s been a lot more role clarity given to players…

“I certainly think our gap between being very, very good and very bad is a lot closer, and I do think that we’re playing a game now that is a little bit more consistent.

“But that unpredictability tag always sort of hangs around the Pakistan team, and that makes us very exciting.”

iOS 12.4 Beta Busted By iOS 12.4 Jailbreak Tool Called Alpha Exploits

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on iOS 12.4 Beta Busted By iOS 12.4 Jailbreak Tool Called Alpha Exploits
Jun

A new iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool was developed by a popular hacker. On his Twitter account, iBSparkes shared proof of his ground-breaking achievement to the community. It is worth noting that before the Beta version of the latest iOS build was rolled out, many speculated that it will be a tough feat to jailbreak it. However, it appears that iBSparkes has found a way to exploit the OS which is currently on its Beta phase.

As a proof of his most recent achievement, the popular hacker shared on his Twitter account a screenshot showing an iPhone SE running on iOS 12.4 Beta along with the Cydia package manager. This only means that iBSparkes has an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool capable of exploiting the latest iOS build.

It also means that his latest iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool can work with all versions (un-jailbroken) of iOS ranging from 12.2 to 12.4. The jailbreak tool creator named his Apple exploit as Alpha since the term connotes that he was the first to break the latest build while it is still on its Beta phase. So far, iBSparkes has not yet shown any indications of when he is going to release his latest exploit tool.

iBSparkes’ latest achievement is a testament that the iOS software is still susceptible to exploits despite the effort the Cupertino-based tech giant has been putting to make it jailbreak-secure. The iOS 12.4 beta Jailbreak tool is also good news for users who prefer to customize their mobile devices.

While it is good to know that there is an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool, it is not an indication that there will be a public jailbreak for the iOS 12.4 build when it is through with its Beta phase and gets officially released. Based on the previous releases, the jailbreak for the iOS 12.4 could be available after the release of iOS 13. This could be a long time but the current status of iOS 12.4, which is still on its beta phase, must be considered. The Cupertino tech giant will not be happy to hear about a new iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool because this will only prove that their iOS has vulnerabilities. But, it could also help Apple to find these vulnerabilities and use it to further improve its upcoming OS builds. Meanwhile, iBSparkes recently hinted that he could be working on an iOS jailbreak tool.

Apple is slated to release the final version of iOS 13 on September 2019. With the latest news about an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool and a potential iOS 13 jailbreak tool, the company has ample time to find and patch these exploited vulnerabilities that made the creation of the iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool possible.

England quicks, Root century brush West Indies aside

England 213 for 2 (Root 100*, Bairstow 45) beat West Indies 212 (Pooran 63, Wood 3-18, Archer 3-30) by eight wickets
As it happened

This was supposed to be a 350 meets 350 match. At least 300 versus 300. And, for those who dared hope, 400 from both teams. In the end, the combined total of both teams just about crossed 400, with England clinically dismantling West Indies at the Hampshire Bowl on Friday.

After three no-result matches in the last four days, it was a bit of a relief to have cricket interrupt the rain. Dark clouds did hover, but metaphorical ones, over the fitness of two key England players. England turned up with their A game, befitting their favourite status. But West Indies were reading from the T20 playbook. They could muster only 212, a total that England romped to in 33.1 overs, riding on Joe Root‘s third World Cup century.

WATCH (India only): Highlights of England’s eight-wicket win over West Indies

England did it without two of their top four – opener Jason Roy and captain Eoin Morgan had limped off the field when West Indies were batting – making it an even more impressive display, though they will be sweating on the fitness of the two batsmen before their next game, against Afghanistan on June 18. Roy left in the eighth over with a tweaked hamstring while Morgan walked off in the 40th over with what he confirmed after the game was a back spasm.

That meant Root was opening the innings in ODIs for the first time, but if you hadn’t been told that, or looked it up, you would have never known it. Root made gleeful use of the gaps in the field during the Powerplay, and on the West Indies bowlers’ waywardness, matching Jonny Bairstow shot for shot in an opening stand that wiped out all hope for the visitors. He was particularly good square of the pitch, in front and behind. When West Indies tried the short-ball strategy, he swivelled back and found runs on the leg side. On the off side, his driving through cover was equally sublime.

Root started briskly, and stayed brisk. Bairstow, who might consider an innings of less than a run a ball slow, was also chugging along until he upper cut Shannon Gabriel straight to third man to end a stand of 95. Chris Woakes earned a somewhat surprising promotion to No. 3 – again forced by injuries and by England’s desire to let Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler stick to their usual middle-order positions. Woakes showed the faith wasn’t misplaced, constructing 40 like a top-order batsman, before a rush of blood meant he pulled Gabriel to deep square with victory only 14 runs away.

Root wasn’t to be denied though, making his second century of the World Cup, emulating Kevin Pietersen as the only other England batsman to score two in an edition. Root’s third century across World Cups topped the list for England batsmen. It capped a day on which he also took two wickets.

Root’s strikes were important, but it was England’s fast bowlers who set the match up. Jofra Archer and Mark Wood were quick and hostile, and Woakes’ lines were even tighter. In the first 15 overs, England’s bowlers bowled only three balls that weren’t length or back of a length. Of those three, one was a yorker that left Evin Lewis splayed with his stumps disturbed.

The Hampshire Bowl is among England’s bigger grounds, which meant merely standing and biffing was never going to be enough. That is where West Indies erred. Their T20-style approach has yielded dividends on flatter tracks and smaller grounds. With some juice in the pitch early and the square boundaries being much longer, that approach backfired.

West Indies needed to work the field and get singles and doubles, but they couldn’t do that, and, as a result, despite finding the boundary semi-regularly, the run rate never galloped. Chris Gayle began in usual fashion – sedate at the start and then muscling the ball away powerfully – but both he and Andre Russell were caught at deep square leg trying to pull short balls. Coincidentally, both batsmen – the two most dangerous hitters in the West Indies line-up – had been dropped in that area, but neither could go on to make a big one. Their mis-hits would have cleared the fence elsewhere, but here, they resulted in catches.

Nicholas Pooran alone was impressive, deftly working the ball into the gaps and picking up runs in the manner that was most efficient on this ground. Shimron Hetmyer allied with Pooran in what looked like a promising stand after the top three had fallen, until he played a loose shot to give Root his first wicket. An seam-up delivery – a knuckle ball almost – accounted for Jason Holder to give Root his second wicket, to joyous celebrations.

It wasn’t the only time England, or Root, celebrated on Friday.

India set to levy higher tariffs on some U.S. goods next week: sources

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India is preparing to impose higher tariffs on some U.S. goods including almonds, walnuts and apples next week after a delay of about a year, two sources said, following Washington’s withdrawal of key trade privileges for New Delhi.

From June 5, President Donald Trump scrapped trade privileges under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) for India, the biggest beneficiary of a scheme that allowed duty-free exports of up to $5.6 billion from the country.

India is now looking at adopting the higher tariffs, the sources with direct knowledge of the matter said, although the U.S. has warned that any retaliatory tariffs by India would not be “appropriate” under WTO rules.

“What India is doing is legal and the tariffs on U.S. goods will only lead to an impact of around $220 million,” one of the sources said, declining to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter.

India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry did not respond to an email from Reuters to seek comments.

India initially issued an order in June last year to raise import taxes as high as 120% on a slew of U.S. items, incensed by Washington’s refusal to exempt New Delhi from higher steel and aluminium tariffs. (reut.rs/2RfD9Rg)

But New Delhi repeatedly delayed raising tariffs as the two nations engaged in trade talks. Trade between them stood at about $142.1 billion in 2018.

India is by far the largest buyer of U.S. almonds, paying $543 million for more than half of U.S. almond exports in 2018, U.S. Department of Agriculture data shows. It is the second largest buyer of U.S. apples, taking $156 million worth in 2018.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is expected to visit India this month, said this week the United States was open to dialogue to resolve trade differences with India, through greater access for American companies to its markets.

Dates for Pompeo’s visit have not been officially announced but media said it could be ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first meeting with Trump in more than two years, on the sidelines of a G20 summit in Japan, on June 28 and 29.

Trump has repeatedly called out India for its high tariffs, even though the two countries have developed close political and security ties.

New Delhi’s new rules in areas such as e-commerce and data localisation have angered the United States and hit companies such as Amazon.com, Walmart Inc, Mastercard and Visa, among others.

Previously, India has called the withdrawal of GSP benefits “unfortunate”, and vowed to “always uphold its national interest in these matters”.

Amy Jones keeps form rolling as England’s top order set up big win, 3-0 series sweep against West Indies

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Amy Jones keeps form rolling as England’s top order set up big win, 3-0 series sweep against West Indies

England 258 for 4 (Jones 80, Taylor 70) beat West Indies 131 (Kycia Knight 38, Cross 2-16, Ecclestone 2-27) by 135 runs (DLS method)

Entertaining batting from Amy Jones and Sarah Taylor led England to a comprehensive 135-run victory over West Indies at Chelmsford and a 3-0 sweep of their ODI series.

Jones’s 80 off 83 balls was her fifth half-century in six ODI innings and added to her 91 in the series opener in Leicester, leading to her being named Player of the Match and Player of the Series on her 26th birthday.

Jones put her form down to “increasing confidence on the back of some good scores” and hard work on her batting.

“I’ve had the backing to open the batting and that’s where I love batting and I feel really comfortable there,” Jones said.

It was a rock-solid performance by England’s top order with Tammy Beaumont falling just short of her fifty and Heather Knight putting on a wonderful cameo of 40 runs off just 19 deliveries to lay the foundation for victory in a match reduced to 39 overs per side after a rain delay of nearly two and a half hours in the 11th over of the match.

Having won the toss and sent England in, West Indies were simply outplayed again, left with far too much to do chasing a target of 267 revised under the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method as England kept the pressure on with the ball and in the field.

Bryony Smith, the 21-year-old from Surrey, made her ODI debut having played three T20Is in the tri-series with Australia and India in Mumbai early last year. Usually an opener for her county, Smith was slated to bat at No. 7 and, while her services weren’t needed with the bat, she was amongst the wickets in her eight overs of off-spin, claiming 1 for 20. Kate Cross was the pick of the England bowlers with 2 for 16 off six overs, while Sophie Ecclestone also claimed two.

Adding to West Indies’ woes ahead of their three-match T20I series starting against England next week, captain Stafanie Taylor left the ground for scans after injuring her hand while fielding. Britney Cooper – called into the touring party to replace Deandra Dottin, who was a late omission with a shoulder injury – was battling illness throughout this match but she will have the best part of five days to recover before the first match at Northampton on Tuesday.

When play resumed after the rain, Jones, unbeaten on 16, and Beaumont, not out 27, really started scoring freely. Beaumont appeared aggrieved at being adjudged lbw to Afy Fletcher on 46 attempting one of several reverse sweeps from the England line-up, suggesting she believed she had got bat on ball.

Her dismissal brought Sarah Taylor to the crease and the England wicketkeeper answered some probing questions about her batting that had arisen since her last ODI score of note, a century against South Africa scored a year and a day – or nine innings – ago. Her 70 off 61 deliveries was full of magnificent stroke play, including more reverse sweeps, until she scooped Hayley Matthews to Shamilia Connell at third man.

Connell had already taken a sharp catch that flew to her at mid-wicket to dismiss Dani Wyatt, who came in when Jones took on a Matthews short ball and skied it to a diving Cooper at deep mid-wicket.

Knight then put on a wonderful display, picking off runs, including two big sixes, to push her side to another daunting total for a West Indies outfit that has struggled all round, but particularly with the bat, so far on this tour. The fact that Kycia Knight’s 38 in this match was their second-highest individual score behind Chedean Nation unbeaten 42 in the series opener put the magnitude of West Indies’ task in perspective.

Knight fell to a typically sharp catch behind the stumps to Sarah Taylor when she got a faint outside edge on a Cross delivery and Nation was unhappy in the extreme when she was given out lbw to Ecclestone with replays suggesting there may have been nothing but bat on ball.

But it was Fran Wilson – coming into the side with Smith and Jenny Gunn as Nat Sciver, Katherine Brunt and Laura Marsh were rested – who effected the dismissal of the match, if not the series. Diving to her left at cover, Wilson managed to grab the ball whilst horizontal in mid-air to dismiss Matthews off Cross with a catch that was nothing short of spectacular.

With Stafanie Taylor unable to bat, West Indies were an important player down and Knight described England’s performance as their best of the series.

“We’ve just been really clinical, really ruthless, in what we’ve done and the most pleasing thing is different people have stood up at different times and we’ve just been really professional and it’s really good signs,” Knight said. “Winning’s become a real habit so we just want to keep that going as long as we can.”

The win lifted England above Australia at the top of the ICC Women’s Championship standings, although England have played six matches more.

Sri Lanka Catholics celebrate mass at restored church after bombings

COLOMBO (Reuters) – Sri Lankan Catholics celebrated a saint’s feast inside a bombed church on Thursday, resuming worship at St. Anthony’s Shrine after Easter attacks by Islamist militants killed more than 250 people on the island.

The April 21 attacks, claimed by militant group Islamic State, targeted three churches and three luxury hotels, shocking the country and shattering a decade of relative peace after the end of a 25-year civil war.

Hundreds of worshippers, including survivors and relatives of the victims, gathered at the shrine in the capital, Colombo, for the feast of St. Anthony of Padua.

Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, the archbishop of Colombo, called for peace on the multi-ethnic island that has also been shaken by anti-Muslim riots carried out in retribution for the bombings.

“Do not make this land become a land of blood,” Ranjith said in his sermon at the restored white-painted church.

A mass was held on Wednesday evening for the first time since the church was reconsecrated.

Authorities say the threat of more Islamist militant attacks has been contained and security services have dismantled most of the network linked to the Easter Sunday bombings.

The Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Bharat’ has claimed the top spot at the box office since its Eid release. The lead stars and their director Ali Abbas Zafar have come out to thank the fans and film buffs for all the love and appreciation they have been showering on their film and contributing to its success.

“I am very happy with the film doing really well and everyone’s work is being appreciated. The success of every film is very important. ‘Bharat‘ is a film that we have given our lives for, like every other film,” Salman said.

In an exclusive interview with ETimes, Salman and Katrina sat down for a chat, where they got candid about their film, the praises coming their way and also shared some tidbits from their lives.

Picking up on the Partition theme of the film, Salman was asked for his reaction on being able to tell their story. He said, “Portraying them, I felt very good, but the people of the time who saw the film said that they could relate to Bharat and Kumud. They really loved the film because they came from Pakistan to India during the Partition. This film reminded them of the struggles they faced during that time. Today they have all united with their families and are very happy in India.”

While Katrina recently credited Salman for her phenomenal performance in the film, the superstar gave her, her due by admitting her character played a role as important as Bharat and that if he met someone like her, he would make one more film on it.

On questioning Katrina if she now feels like she deserves a National Award for her performance, the beauty simply said, “Dekhte hai.”

She went on to add, “I think the most important thing for all of us and the film’s team was the audience’s reward because that’s who we make our films for.”

Salman also shared that like the many Indians who had family members separated during the Partition, his father’s sister too moved to Pakistan. He narrated, “I asked my father what were his memories of the partition. One of his sisters who was married had to move to Pakistan with her husband. She and her family lived in Karachi. She was the only one who went there, but I think she was not happy leaving the country. But she was happy there.”

He later added that she had passed away a while back.

Meanwhile, on a lighter note, the superstar was asked if he would ever accept a proposal in the manner Kumud proposed to Bharat. To know his answer, watch the interview below.

iOS 12.4 Beta Busted By iOS 12.4 Jailbreak Tool Called Alpha Exploits

A new iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool was developed by a popular hacker. On his Twitter account, iBSparkes shared proof of his ground-breaking achievement to the community. It is worth noting that before the Beta version of the latest iOS build was rolled out, many speculated that it will be a tough feat to jailbreak it. However, it appears that iBSparkes has found a way to exploit the OS which is currently on its Beta phase.

As a proof of his most recent achievement, the popular hacker shared on his Twitter account a screenshot showing an iPhone SE running on iOS 12.4 Beta along with the Cydia package manager. This only means that iBSparkes has an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool capable of exploiting the latest iOS build.

It also means that his latest iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool can work with all versions (un-jailbroken) of iOS ranging from 12.2 to 12.4. The jailbreak tool creator named his Apple exploit as Alpha since the term connotes that he was the first to break the latest build while it is still on its Beta phase. So far, iBSparkes has not yet shown any indications of when he is going to release his latest exploit tool.

iBSparkes’ latest achievement is a testament that the iOS software is still susceptible to exploits despite the effort the Cupertino-based tech giant has been putting to make it jailbreak-secure. The iOS 12.4 beta Jailbreak tool is also good news for users who prefer to customize their mobile devices.

While it is good to know that there is an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool, it is not an indication that there will be a public jailbreak for the iOS 12.4 build when it is through with its Beta phase and gets officially released. Based on the previous releases, the jailbreak for the iOS 12.4 could be available after the release of iOS 13. This could be a long time but the current status of iOS 12.4, which is still on its beta phase, must be considered. The Cupertino tech giant will not be happy to hear about a new iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool because this will only prove that their iOS has vulnerabilities. But, it could also help Apple to find these vulnerabilities and use it to further improve its upcoming OS builds. Meanwhile, iBSparkes recently hinted that he could be working on an iOS jailbreak tool.

Apple is slated to release the final version of iOS 13 on September 2019. With the latest news about an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool and a potential iOS 13 jailbreak tool, the company has ample time to find and patch these exploited vulnerabilities that made the creation of the iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool possible.

Thought I might never score hundred for Australia again, admits Warner

Warner treated innings like a Test match

That leap to celebrate an international hundred is back. That feeling David Warner at times felt he would never be able to enjoy again. And it is that fear that kept Warner going through the 14 months of international exile, as a result of his role in the Newlands ball-tampering controversy. If that fear pushed him to be back to the best batsman he could be, his wife Candice’s support helped him come out of the initial trauma, admitted a relieved Warner afterwards.

“Yeah, definitely,” Warner said when asked if he ever feared he might never get a chance to score a century for Australia again. “There was always that going through my mind. And I think that’s what drove me to keep being as fit as I can, keep scoring as many runs as I can in the Twenty20 tournaments that I was playing in.”

Before he could get back to scoring those T20 runs, he struggled to get out of the bed even. That’s when Candice helped him. “The thing that kept me going was my wife and my kids,” Warner said. “Got great support at home, my family. And my wife is just, she’s just my rock. She’s unbelievable. She’s determined, disciplined, selfless.

“And I hold a lot of credit to her. She’s a strong woman. And she got me out of bed a lot in those sort of first 12 weeks, and got me back running and training hard as I could, and prepared for the other formats of the game I was playing. So it was just to maintain my level of fitness and just hard work. And she really nailed that into me.”

There was no point moping around. Warner had to enjoy the process of getting back. There was no other option, but he found it genuinely enjoyable. “Really enjoyed going out there. And we used Regulation balls [Kookaburra Regulation, which has a more pronounced seam than Kookaburra Turf, which is used in the first half of the Shield season] back in Sydney [grade cricket]. And that was a challenge in itself to get used to that. The different obscure fields that were being set because the wickets are a tad slower. I really enjoyed all that. It was really, really hard work.

Watch on Hotstar (India only) – Hotstar of the match

“And I think going through those tough times and sort of regrouping with myself to put myself in the best position to come back to international cricket, I did everything I could. I really, really knuckled down and trained my backside off.

“And I’m just grateful for this opportunity. I’m just really looking forward to what’s coming ahead of us here in the World Cup. Pumped to be back, and the boys are on fire here. We’ve got a great group harmony, a lot of smiles on the faces as you can see in a lot of the training sessions and out in the field. So, look, I’m pumped.”

Warner is pumped, and finally he has had a match in England where he was not booed. He has a message: the booing might only make him and Steven Smith more determined. “The boos, we don’t really hear that when we’re out there,” Warner said. “At the end of the day we’re out there to do a job. For me, it’s just trying to score runs and have a lot of energy in the field. And, look, it’s water off a duck’s back. You get it all the time. I’ve heard it my whole career. Actually it eggs us on a lot and makes us knuckle down and try to score more runs if anything.”

There is a difference between Smith and Warner, though. Warner has largely been seen as the corrupting influence. Warner has not had the amount of sympathy that has come Smith’s way. Nor has he done any interviews to seek any.

“I was just focused ahead,” Warner said. “That was my own thing. I was just focusing on playing the next game that I was playing in, training as hard as I could. I didn’t need to say anything. What was said was said back in those press conferences. And now it’s about looking forward.”

And to be in the here and now is to enjoy the soreness from training hard to be fit enough to be part of the current Australia set-up. “Coming back, that soreness that you normally get, it was it put a smile on my face,” Warner said. “I had a little bit of a strain on my glute. I think that was just purely based on getting back into it and sort of getting back in the mojo of things. And, look, it was just great to be back and part of the team.”

More smiles will be on his face when partners of the players join the team in London on Thursday. The last time Warner had Candice over when playing for Australia was probably the most desperate time of his career. He was under the pump, she was mocked disgustingly by the crowds, and it all led to a bitter climax in Newlands. Warner is in a much better place, Australia are in a much better place, and he is looking forward to being with his family and enjoying the tour. That could hardly be said in South Africa.

Israel power company asks Fortnite to drop pole-climbing in game

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s power company has asked the makers of Fortnite to no longer allow players to scale electric poles in the popular online game, saying this risked encouraging dangerous copycat behaviour among children.

Launched in 2017 by North Carolina-based Epic Games, Fortnite is a survival-themed battle game that pits dozens of online players against each other. It signed up tens of millions of users for its “battle royale” format, which allows dozens of players to fight each other to death until the last survivor.

In a June 10 letter to Epic Games, the Israel Electricity Corp. said Fortnite characters can “climb up electricity poles freely and without restriction” – a real-life stunt among some Israeli youths that the power company said it had been trying for “many years” to stem through an educational campaign.

“You are responsible for the personal safety of your consumers,” said the letter, shared with Reuters. “We therefore ask you to take action to remove dangerous content that encourages life-risking situations related to the use of electricity.”

Epic Games did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In April, Iraq’s parliament voted to ban Fortnite and another popular online video game, citing their “negative” influence – especially on the young – in a country long plagued by real-life bloodshed. Fortnite has also been banned in the Indian state of Gujarat.
