i do not no anyone who has a mac and yes its brand new i have full signal on an o2 simcard but i do NOT want to be on o2 as im on contract with tmobile, i just read on the forums that when it gets stuck on the "waiting for reboot" he said jus pull the cable out of the phone and plug it back in? and there were about 7 comments underneath saying thanks!! etc. etc. Pulling the cable out in the process seems like it could **** the phone up to me ???
#32
the porter
what options do u tick as in cydia icy?


i tick CYDIA only
#33
the porter
well that bits right
