iPhone 6S+ to the Pixel XL: My Experience

Introduction

This is a topic I have been meaning to cover ever since I switched to the Pixel XL. My SIM only contract was due for an upgrade at the beginning of this year and my mobile service provider offered me a great deal if I upgraded to a contact which included a phone. The choices were between the iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Pixel (Pixel XL too).

This post will be split into 5 sections: Background, Decisions and Choices, The Switch, My Experience so far and a summary.

TLDR; I switched from an iPhone 6s+ to the Pixel XL. The Pixel XL is an amazing phone and Google have finally addressed my main concerns about the Android operating system.

Full length ring-tones on the iPhone!

In this post i will be showing you how to setup one of the songs lying around in your iTunes library as your ringtone on the iPhone.

Untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak tool finally released!

I do not normally blog about stuff like this but i thought seeing as i already have a technology/coding blur of a blog,  i might as well post it here!

So today, 4th Febuary 2011, the new untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak was released! I have been waiting over two months for this jailbreak to be released. Ever since 4.2 was announced and released i have been waiting for this jailbreak. There have been many tethered jailbreaks around but i don’t fancy jailbreaking my iPhone every time i restart it..

There is no real need for me to upgrade, only one or two of my apps are currently showing me errors telling me about how old my firmware is but apart from that everything is working fine.

Here is a mirror of the windows jailbreak tool: (GreenPoison is currently down..)

UPDATE: Windows Download!!
