And for the new pictures for the stub pages, you probably just copied them from somewhere on the Internet. Please draw your own images instead of stealing it from somewhere. I'll delete them otherwise. We cannot have the official Apple logo just as a mark for general Apple issues. We might be able to use official product photos or the Apple logo on a page describing Apple, but nothing else. Treat images the same way as software. The jailbreak image probably comes from a scammers page, but it's still not yours, even if they do bad things. Geohot has enough trouble right now, so don't add copyrighted material to this wiki. I'll delete the images tomorrow if you haven't replaced them by then. Thanks. --http 17:23, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Ok, i'll replace the copywrited images with Public domain. --5urd 17:31, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. (I had to laugh when I saw your new Apple!) --http 17:39, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Please stop flooding the wiki with your changes about your vfdecrypt GUI (one of what like 200?) all the recent changes most of the time are from you about little menial stuff that i doubt most people care about, i had to stop following the wiki twitter account because it seemed like 99.99% of the updates were from you, all useless. PLEASE STOP --Nito 19:53, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Obviously keeping the wiki up to date is more important than inconveniencing anyone regarding their twitter feeds. The more accurate the wiki, the better. MuscleNerd 20:40, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes but when his updates are about stupid crap re: ANOTHER vfdecrypt GUI then i think it does a disservice to everyone who uses the wiki. --Nito 20:37, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I think it's better not to judge *anyone's* contributions, large or small. This is a community of contributors. MuscleNerd 20:40, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I understand that, but mostly every time i look in the recent changes pages its filled up with garbage about idecryptit or whatever, rendering "recent changes" 99.99% useless imo. --Nito 20:42, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
The more active the wiki, the better. It means (1) people are contributing (2) info is being refined and corrected. Even if it's the tiniest details, over time that makes a big difference. MuscleNerd 20:44, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, because people learn a lot from a GUI. He uses the wiki as an advertisement for it. --cj 20:50, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
If it's a valid wiki topic, then it "deserves" to be updated as much as any other topic. If it's not a valid topic, ask to have it removed. He's actually marking all of his minor edits properly (that bold "m"). Perhaps whoever owns that twitter account shouldn't rebroadcast edits marked as minor like that. MuscleNerd 20:54, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I think it straddles the line of "valid" i definitely remember reading somewhere that geo didn't want the wiki to be used as an advertisement for apps --Nito 20:56, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
The rule is actually "don't create a page just to advertise your new website please". More details on the Ground Rules page. MuscleNerd 21:02, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I am not advertising. I am just posting relevant info on an iPhone related app. Also, now that is it published, I am done. Whenever a new firmware comes out, the recent changes is flooded with about 30 edits! --5urd 23:16, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Don't worry about it...feel free to make any changes whenever they're needed. You're actually doing a good job marking minor changes as "m", and those can be filtered from the Recent Changes page via a single click in the user preference panel. (Whoever's running that twitter bot should filter away "m" changes.) MuscleNerd 23:29, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! I only try to contribute. I never advertise and I always try to do my best to make sure this wiki has the latest info. --5urd 23:35, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Yep, there can never be "too much" latest info :) The more contributors the better! MuscleNerd 23:40, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I agree. Thank you for your support in this. --5urd 02:52, 27 May 2011 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for fixing my bad link on the Bugging Debuggers page. But what did you mean by your comment "please rephrase that, here is what makes google hate us". What part needs rephrasing? --Tempelorg 17:20, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

"Here", "Click here", etc. brings a sites ratings down. It also makes the page less clearer. --5urd 18:55, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
Ah, I see what you mean now. You should have put "here" in quotes, then I would have understood that you referred using that particular word. Will fix it now. Thanks. --Tempelorg 13:45, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
 :) --5urd 18:00, 23 June 2011 (UTC)


I noticed that you've been performing an excessive amount of edits the past few days. In particular, you exceeded 50 edits on August 1, 2011. I'd like to remind you that this goes against the newest rule of the wiki (Section 4.7 in the Ground rules). If you exceed the editing limit again, you will be blocked (the duration of which will depend on the administrator). This will be your only verbal warning regarding this. --Dialexio 12:47, 2 August 2011 (MDT)

Is this every day thing reset every 24 hours, or midnight in WHAT time zone --5urd 14:41, 2 August 2011 (MDT)
To keep things simple, I'm considering it "reset" at midnight according to the server's time zone (MDT). --Dialexio 16:02, 2 August 2011 (MDT)
OK, sorry about that, I was really confused and I knew there was something I was going to bring up on the proposal, but I had forgot --5urd 16:29, 2 August 2011 (MDT)
Also, I didnt notice. Sorry --5urd 17:29, 2 August 2011 (MDT)
YAY he can stop spamming my twitter feed with his edits to the iphone key page. no one cares about 1.x - 2.x any more. --ComingWinter 00:09, 3 August 2011 (GMT)
Hey, follow the Recent Changes the way I do, through the page itself with a bookmark on my iPod's home screen. I mark those as minor just so you know and I was planning on spacing it out over a month or two so I dont spam it anyways... --5urd 17:29, 2 August 2011 (MDT)

Crap, went over by 5, SORRY! --5urd 17:34, 7 August 2011 (MDT)

I meant to share this earlier when it was brought to my attention… You actually just hit the hourly limit for minor edits; you didn't exceed it. The rule currently limits users to 20 edits and 20 minor edits every hour. (I was planning to make the number 15, but didn't for some reason.) --Dialexio 21:23, 7 August 2011 (MDT)
Ok, thanks. --5urd 15:57, 8 August 2011 (MDT)

Latest stable software release

I saw that there are some pages below your user name, like "Latest stable software release", etc. This was a temporary solution only. Your decrypt gui may have its own page (in category GUI Tools), as discussed long ago with geohot and the rules listed there. We don't want (discuss here if I'm the only one thinking so) to have version number pages of TinyUmbrella etc under your user name. Please fix this. I'll delete all these user sub-pages soon and don't want to fix all affected pages. Thanks. -- http 01:38, 25 September 2011 (MDT)

Sorry, I was waiting for a slow day to replace the Template:infobox software with the Wikipedia one using parser functions where the latest release is on the page. But don't delete the preview and final release for iDecryptIt as they are used by the update checker in the program. Thanks! --5urd 15:16, 25 September 2011 (MDT)
Don't use the wiki as part of your software! So you better get this fixed soon (including your software) if you want that it doesn't break. I can wait a week or two before I delete them though. -- http 16:00, 25 September 2011 (MDT)
When 5.00.7 comes out, it will no longer check from this wiki. After a month(?), you can delete them. That will be soon, I just need to finish the site. --5urd 16:11, 25 September 2011 (MDT)

Thanks, man

Hey Cole, thanks for fixing up my page :) means a lot. --rdqronos 17:24, 15 October 2011 (MDT)

Warez warning

I'm being pretty lenient on this simply because the link that you posted wasn't a direct link to warez (though it did have it). But the next time you post a link that contains warez, I will most likely block you indefinitely. --Dialexio 17:53, 21 October 2011 (MDT)

Ok, sorry. --5urd 17:59, 21 October 2011 (MDT)


Please discuss changing the version numbers beforehand. A firmware's BuildManifest(o).plist may contain a tilde and some following numbers, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the actual binary carries the tilde and numbers also. --Dialexio 23:52, 17 November 2011 (MST)

Sorry, if you want to remove the tildes, I will do it. But to me, the tilde version makes it a bit more specific. Like how 8B117 is more specific than 4.1 --5urd 20:12, 18 November 2011 (MST)
Nah, I don't think it needs to be reverted (yet) since that may lead to redundant changes. I just think that it should be discussed before all of the iBoot pages, etc. shift to the tilde format. --Dialexio 21:25, 18 November 2011 (MST)
