Facebook For iPad Has Arrived [Updated]

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Gadgets, How To, iPad, Jailbreak, News, Rants & Raves, Social Networks, Tutorials

The entire world has been patiently awaiting the arrival of a Facebook iPad app. This however is just about to change. As discovered by some folks on Twitter and confirmed by TechCrunch, the new Facebook iPad app is ready and actually already out there. Indeed, Facebook did develop the app and placed it inside its code already, but hasn’t simply activated it. Just a few lines of code to change can however make it happen.

Hidden in the code of Facebook’s iPhone app is the code for something else. Something everyone has been waiting over a year for. The iPad app.

The gist of the trick is a modification to make inside the Facebook app discovered by AeroEchelon on Twitter:

If you change the UIDeviceFamily to 2 for iPhone on the Facebook app you get an iPad version!

You can make apps iPad compatible without pixelation and 2x button and also you can make the app support all 4 orientations. Here is how:

1.  Navigate to the app you want to make compatible in /var/mobile/Applications 2.  Open the info.plist in the applications main folder 3.  Add the follow: <key>UIDeviceFamily</key> <array> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> </array> 4. Respring and then you should have a nice iPad size app

iClarified has a full step by step guide on how to achieve just that. It’s actually the same technique that has been long used to force iPhone-only apps to run in full screen on the iPad.

Update #1:

Facebook has blocked access to iPad version

Update #2:

You can re-enable Facebook’s iPad app by doing this:
  • Download Facebook app
  • Open Cydia and install FaceForward [a free tweak available under BigBoss repo]

Install OS X Lion Final Release Over Lion GM Guide

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Download, How To, Tutorials

If you are running the Mac OS X Lion GM build and you want to buy and install the Final release of Lion through the Mac App Store, you’ve noticed that you’ll get that’s already “installed” App Store. To work around you just need to hold Option and click on the Install button to be able to install the final release over GM. You can also do this through the “Purchases” tab in the Mac App Store, just hold down Option to enable the “Install” button.

Note: if you’re a developer who is running the Lion GM build 11A511 there is technically no need to install the Lion Final, both builds are 11A511 and identical.

This is also a way for those who inappropriately downloaded Lion GM to pay Apple for the final release. It’s only $29.99. Developers needn’t do this however thanks to The Loop for getting this tip.
