Most of the iOS users knows that YouTube app just can’t play in background as we all would like it could. Because of that, you can’t even listen to favorite music from YouTube and do any other stuff on your iPhone or iPad at the same time.

Fortunately, this little trick allows you to have YouTube videos or music playing in the background without using any other third-party applications.

Tutorial:

  1. Using idevice open Safari and go to YouTube website.
  2. Launch any video you like and pause it.

It’s a great news for all users having their idevices running on iOS 9.1. But bad news comes for users running iOS 9.2 and later, since Apple is no longer signing iOS 9.1 firmware.

  7. Launch Pangu which you downloaded and click on Start button.
  8. Click on Already backup and Jailbreak will start.
  9. Follow the next steps showed by Pangu tool.
  10. After idevice restarts, unlock it and enable Airplane mode again.

Cut-SIM-card-1024x480.jpg

3min00

SIM card can be cut for free in any mobile operator office, but there are situations when you must do it by yourself. And in this case, it is better to do it correctly, because otherwise it can be easily damaged and all the contacts stored in it will be lost.
Everything is simple if another Micro or Nano SIM is nearby, then it could be used as an example of the required size. If there is none, we really do not recommend to cut without seeing current dimensions.
Down below you’ll find a scheme, which will help to mark the appropriate size depending on the type of SIM card you need. It’s recommended to print whole scheme and put the card you want to cut on the center of the necessary dimensions. If there’s no printer around, then SIM can be placed directly on the tablet or laptop screen to mark required measurements. To the left there are docked examples of the Nano and Micro SIM cards. The main SIM chip is located in the center of the microscheme (scheme 4th step on the right), but it’s still not recommended to damage any of the SIM metal frame sides.

Having trouble with receiving one call in two different iPhones at the same time? You have no idea why is this happening?

Just remember that turning of this call pairing function does not stop sharing same iCloud details like contacts, photos, videos and so on.

icloud-lock.jpg

After lots of fake tools we tried and viruses we received looking for them, after tons of fake info founded on websites, we decided to make it clear for everybody.

Today there’s no way you can easily unlock iCloud locked iPhone or iPad. We say easily because we know only one and the most real method that works just for iPhone 4. We are thinking that this tutorial might work on other iPhones too, but we are not 100% sure about that because we didn’t had a chance to try it. Main idea of this tutorial is to use system files from same iPhone model by copying them to the locked one. There’s no info about what happens to that non locked iPhone.

Another trick is to use a crash file which is uploaded straight from server. Crash file acts like system security bug ant let’s you reach home screen. Main problem is that you can only see installed apps and if you tap on any of them screen freezes. So again you have to repeat all the steps to get back in to home screen. Just remember that result will be the same.

So if one day we’ll find a way to bypass iCloud lock, believe us.. We’ll be the first publishing that tutorial to our subscribers!
