Wow, I know this is OT but, how does he have GBA4iOS, or a display recorder, or the old YouTube app, without a jailbreak?

Oh I see! Lol. Say, perhaps you can answer a question for me?
Is it $14.99 only the first year since it includes the certificates, or is it $14.99 every year? I'm not sure if the certificates have to be renewed every year...

Yes its $14.99 per year. The Certificates can only last up to a year. If your interested in it, I Recommend their Official Reseller... they have $1 off at the moment. That's why I jumped on it. Its a pretty handy little app, and having the UDID registration and certificates is nice.

This is their twitter. https://twitter.com/BuyZeusmos

The website is http://www.buyzeusmos.co.uk - And I believe the coupon code is ZUESMOS1

They definitely are real so don't hesitate. My Brother, and My Both have it, Me on my iPhone 5, him on his iPad Mini. People are even getting iFile and several other jailbreak applications to function using it!

That is standard base 4G/HSPA+ 14.4mbps tower speedtest, and not the faster 21mbps HSPA+ that the iPhone 5 supports over the 4S.

edit:
3G/HSPA 7.2mbps => speedtest max application layer speed ~5mbps (iPhone 3GS/4)
4G/HSPA+ 14.4 => ~10mbps (iPhone 4S)
4G/HSPA+ 21 => ~14.7mbps (iPhone 5)
4G/DC-HSPA 42 => ~ 29.4 (iPhone 5)
4G/LTE => 70mbps (iPhone 5)

I am aware.
The point was that my speeds have gone up since I installed iOS 6.1 on my iPhone.

The speed increase is likely due to infrastructure enhancements your carrier is performing in your area and just happened to roughly coincide with your iOS update.

Both of those modify core system files. So unfortunately no, as Zeusmos does not "jailbreak" the device to allow root access.

Your video was pretty terrible, it was a silent video which I hate and no real explanation..

Anyway here are my HSPA+ speeds with 3 in the UK at my home address. Upload speeds varies a bit, which is where 4G benefits.

That is not HSPA+. That is DC-HSDPA.

Thanks for the info. I might consider it.

I'd really only want it for GBA emulation. Not so sure if that's worth $14 a year though when a jailbreak could be out in the coming months
