Garmin Connect — Android & iOS– Is Now At 4.2 (As Of January 13, 2018).

by Anura Guruge



Garmin Connect updated to 4.2 this morning, automatically, on my ASUS ZenPad 10.1″ running Android 7.0.

Smooth update. No issues. Accessed my prior data, seamlessly, as soon as it initalized itself. So far, so good. Noticed that it now ‘flashes’ a ‘device connected’ message when it makes Bluetooth contact.

This update is consistent with Garmin’s recent claim to provide monthly updates — at a minimum — for all of its software.

We were, with Garmin Connect, at 4.1.11 (which was released around December 8, 2017). So, the timing was on the mark.

Interesting that it is 4.2 rather than 4.1.12.

Garmin Express, earlier this week, was updated to 6.0.

So, it would appear that Garmin, in January, starts off with fresh ‘release number’ builds — rather than incremental updates.

Garmin Connect, unlike Garmin Express, should AUTO-UPDATE.

If you do not have 4.2 on your Mobile you might want to force an update.


So, as of Saturday, January 13, 2018:

Garmin Connect — 4.2

Garmin Express — 6.0

Vivoactive 3 — 2.9

Got that?

Has Israeli ‘Cellebrite’ Reverse-Engineered Some/All Of Apple iOS 8.x To Unlock iPhones?

Not sure whether Apple and others are being disingenuous here BUT from the time I heard of Cellebrite’s involvement with the FBI to bypass the “wrong password” retry safeguards it was very clear to me that Cellebrite MUST offer this service to others.

I also don’t think that the FBI was their first client.

It would appear that they have been unlocking, in terms of encryption, phones for some time now.

In the case of iPhones they might have reverse engineered some of the iOS source code at the MACHINE CODE instruction level (as opposed to C++ code). Reverse engineering code is doable with enough smarts and hard work.

What we now need is ENCRYPTED machine code! Something that I thought about 40 years ago, while working for IBM, around the same time I came up with my software authentication scheme (which is still used today) in 1978. Think about it. SMILE. It is doable.
