Right I got mine yesterday,and need help please. . . .

1.- What on earth is summerboard/winterboard? I want to change the themes, but i have no idea how to
2.- Ive seen peoples phones with the o2 carrier symbols changed to their name- how?
3.- Is there a way to have messages all separate instead of one giant loop?
4.- How to jailbreak?
5.- Is there anyway i can turn my ipod tunes into ringtones for free?

Please help me with all this pleaseee!!!! Will leave rep

Hi if you go to Zedge.com, you can download ringtones specifically for the iphone, ready to just drag and drop into itunes. They'll probably have what you're after there...

Windows...thanks for this mate!

hiya, ive rebooted. still no signal. . .

Personally I don't think you should have been told to use purplera1n... its ok, but its not well supported (though I do love geohot for his work!).

If you want a better (in my opinion) approach, use redsn0w with ultrasn0w.

I can help you with this if you wanna try it.

once again really east may take a lil longer but easy any problems drop em a pm and im happy to help
banned#25
As far as I can see, pablo has only told you to use purplera1n, which is not enough to unlock.

hang on, ill write a guide

Right first download this:

http://content.info.apple.com/iPhone/061-6582.20090617.LlI87/iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw

Save it to your desktop, in a folder called Iphone

Open itunes, and restore your phone (***youll lose all data***) - do this by HOLDING THE SHIFT BUTTON when you click the restore button in itunes, and select the ipsw file you just downloded.

Now download this torrent: http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4989699/redsn0w-win_0.8.zip

unzip it etc, run it, and it will ask you to select your firmware - point it at the same ipsw file you downloaded, and itll detect it etc. Then select only Cydia for install, not Icy.

Let it install..... jailbreak success.

To unlock, you need ultrasn0w - you can install this from cydia by going to 'manage' - then 'sources' then add new, and add this source: repo666.ultrasn0w.com
