What do deb, ipa, pxL mean?
deb is an installation package under Unix (actually mostly Linux), based on tar packages, so it records file permissions (read / write / executable) and owner / user groups. Because of the Unix class system requirements for permissions, owners, groups, and the deb installation package is often involved in setting the underlying system permissions.
The deb package itself consists of three parts: the data package, containing the actual installation of the program data, filename data.tar.XXX; the installation information and control script package, including deb installation instructions, identity, script, etc., filename control.tar.gz; the last is the deb file some binary data, including file first class information, generally do not see, in some software can see open. The tar format is not a compression format, but rather a direct collection of scattered files and directories, and records their permissions and other data information. The data.tar.XXX, mentioned earlier, is a compressed suffix. The deb default compression format is gzip format, so the most common is data.tar.tz..ipa Abundant resources: So many resources on the App Store, apptrackr and other sites also provide a lot of XX version. Perfect update, post-service. Can only use the minimum permissions to ensure security. Does not involve system-level operations, so it is generally not easy to cause crashes or white Apple (some because of resource consumption is too large so card dead).Easy to install, whether you install it directly from the App Store on your device, sync it with iTunes, or install it with third-party software like Install and 91.Super simple way to uninstall: what is easier than just point an X to uninstall it? completely delete, will not leave any junk files (such as archiving, setting up files, etc.) in general XX is still relatively easy, but now more and more software to join the anti-XX measures..pxl Strictly speaking, the pxl format of the resources is not much, but also quite a lot. Now the vast majority of the use of pxl format are 91 users. In terms of timeliness, a lot of software (mainly on the App Store) as soon as someone XX will be converted to pxl format, so, pxl format updates or a lot of other mobile phone sync software will not be familiar with the result. The popularity of pxl format is not a relic of history, but in line with the needs of the market. 91 Assistant's convenient software management (especially to support WiFi management), coupled with the flag of free, so pxl format in the new hands is very popular. In fact, the pxl format and the deb format function exactly the same. Although pxl can not record file permissions and other data, but can be fully compensated for by script. That is to say, the pxl format and the deb format is not really the same. And because the production of the pxl format does not need to be relatively rare Unix environment, especially the Debian environment, which itself is superior to the deb format.
What does WIFI mean?

"Baseband":Basebandis the core concept of iPhone unlock, although in general, it is considered that 2.2 firmware has been soft solution, 2.2.1 firmware can not be soft solution, in fact, the cause of soft solution failure, in fact, 2.2 firmware baseband version is 02.28.00BB by XX, and 2.2.1 firmware of the baseband version has been upgraded, XX. Some players have made their own without upgrading the baseband version of 2.2.1 firmware, will be able to soften the solution. And in order to prevent this from happening, Apple in the future 3.0 firmware, began to firmware and baseband version of the match between the new restrictions, the old version of the baseband can not be used with the new version of firmware.

What is the US version? "US version", "Hong Kong version": This is the market for the source of the iPhone description, because the domestic iPhone market is now very deep, the "US version" does not necessarily represent the United States imported machine, but many JS used to describe the machine can not be officially unlocked. There is the New Zealand version is also lock-free machine, and the Italian version and the Indian version seems to be lock-free machine, but the domestic supply is relatively small. Check the model of the machine can know the machine version, this part of the information I will be added later.

Third,precautionsAdvantages and Disadvantages of iPhone The iPhone as Apple's temporary, only mobile phone, can be said to be concentrated on Apple's mobile phone all the investment, to the iPhone only a machine to maintain the product line, in the field of smart phones, can also be considered quite high share. For those who know the iPhone, gorgeous interface can attract almost 90% of the eye, and hearsay the "App Store" can provide tens of thousands of thousands of people using software, according to the main experience is quite attractive, according to the iPhone, and so far experience.1.the touch screen operation is extremely smooth, I have also used the HTC diamonds at that time, the feeling of that touch is different...2.Web browsing is very easy, this easy to a large extent based on the smooth operation, and the software store provides a lot of software, with MSN, QQ, Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, Flickr these popular network applications fit very well, with 3G and WIFI, a variety of network applications can be said to be perfect.3.multi-touch, gravity-sensing these things, so that the iPhone's entertainment features are also quite powerful, and this powerful entertainment features so that the iPhone beyond the great distance of other phones.
But the iPhone also has many drawbacks, such as:1.the default system of Chinese input method is not easy to use, handwriting has handwriting problems, Pinyin has Pinyin problems. 2.because of the performance limitations of the iPhone itself, in addition to the machine's phone and music play these two functions can run in the background, all the programs can not run in the background, which leads to not only can not hang QQ, even you in QQ when a text message came in, have to quit QQ to return to the message.3.the system is too limited by Apple, so to achieve some functions have to rely on a lot of third-party applications after the jailbreak, such as Cydia.4.the software store seems to provide thousands of software, the real practical value is not much, and good software is often paid for software, for domestic users to pay is almost impossible to do, want to use these paid software to use a large number of piracy.5.the biggest problem is in fact, the domestic parallel market, the iPhone water is very deep, SIM card unlock the problem led to JS endless, all over the version is also very complex, which will be explained in detail later. For many people criticized the iPhone some shortcomings, I think in fact belong to the fault, and many people are worthy of, such as color letters, tape recorders, paste the system is the default, I do not only the function of the third party, it is a problem of the time to the system is also is a fault, At least, those so-called "iPhone killer" out one after another, also did not see the iPhone kill... domestic iPhone purchase need to pay attention to a few points or that sentence, the iPhone this phone, the domestic market water is very deep, so when buying must do enough homework. First talk about lock-free machine. The recommended way to buy directly in Hong Kong Apple officials online, this method is the most secure, some of the players do not know what kind of Hong Kong, please do not pay attention to the Hong Kong, or New Zealand version of the credibility.
If you can only buy at home, then you must pay attention to the following points. 1.through the settings in the model to determine whether the Hong Kong version of the machine, check the machine, Cato, the box above the serial number and IMEI is the same, this is the most basic, model this thing can not be faked temporarily, and three yards in one can basically protect the machine's origin.
2.Serial number and model interpretation of the serial number, mainly the first 5, of which 3, 4, 5 is the factory time, such as the first five serial number of my machine is "86834", then 34 weeks in 2008 out of the machine. Some machines serial number is the first 5 start, this batch of machines is Apple's official refurbisher, can be purchased as appropriate. Model, is used to see the iPhone is the version of that region, which Australia and New Zealand machine model is the same, but New Zealand is directly unlocked, Australia belongs to the lock but can be officially unlocked, this should be noted.
