evasi0n 7 v1.0.2 was released today. It fixes the specific problem of the iPad 2 being stuck in reboot mode. Worked fine for me.

I picked this up back in 2010 on a discounted lifetime licence and have found it invaluable in cleaning out unwanted files quickly and safely.

That "safely" requires that you have some understanding about how OS X stores files, but that applies to any program which can affect the system at a deeper level. If you need to do some research first, then that's what you need to do.

I recently cleared out a bunch of apps and settings I no longer needed on an older laptop, and it was exactly what that machine needed to see its performance and disc space increase.

Nice to see a flood of five-star reviews. Glad so many people are happy with the program all of a sudden and decided to speak up. ;-)

The newest addition is the beta feature of using the disc's native menus. It works on very few discs so far, causing MANY freezes and crashes, and to be fair it is a BETA feature right now.

Even the discs which do play with native menus will often freeze a number of minutes into the movie. This does not happen when you choose the Quick Play option (the familiar menu the program has used since its initial release).

While I'm happy that I've purchased this program, I wouldn't want to pay for an upgrade to 3.0 until the bugs have been worked out of the native menu playback.

Fantastic! With the native support for Brother now, previews are no longer dependent on scan sizes, meaning you can preview at a more typical low res, and scan at high res. A big time saver.

I love this app. Uses Environment Canada data which is the gold standard in Canada. Works very well under the latest Mac OSes. Whatever may have been lacking in years past, it's long been solved.

Still works under 10.8, but trying to open the preferences causes the System Preferences panel to quit. So you can't change any of the options.

That said, still a very nice screensaver for the Trek fans, and as it's free, I can't complain. If the author updates it, I'd gladly pay a few dollars for it.

Finally! A weather widget that shows Canada clearly, with multiple choices for regions. Thanks hugely.

Nice little program.

One UI tweak reuest:

Could you have an option to make the pnecil and eraser cursors be brush size or a crosshair? Reason being, I'm left handed and seeing a right-hand pencil screws up my perception and I'm drawing on a weird angle because of it.

Thanks for your good work.

v1.0.0 did not work with an iPad2 running 7.0.4. During reboot after a successful install got stuck on the Apple log/boot process. Kept rebooting back to the Apple logo. Restore to normal 7.0.4 was successful.
