I wouldnt bother jailbreaking a 3g tbh, itll slow it down

works great on a iphone 4 tho, no slow down at all
great for modding anything you want

The jailbreak itself DOES NOT slow ur phone down, now if u choose to install apps that were designed for an iph4 then that's ur problem!

You can download it using Installous and it will let you know regarding future updates. It's downloads through stuff like rapidshare straight onto your phone.
I've got Tom Tom and Navigon on mine.

Can someone explain a bit more what teatherd actually means in terms my simple brain can understand
#20
Tethering is using your data/internet connection on your mobile to browse the internet on your PC or laptop. So if someone had unlimited internet on their mobile contract then they wouldn't need an internet at home or on the move but mobile phone companies have become wise to this so best look a bit deeper on who's wise and who isn't.

Loads, can remove EU volume limit, remove restrictions on TV Out cables, set your own ringtones/text alerts, facetime over 3G, change the themes, get loads of cool cydia apps. This is my lock screen for example:

Change the affects (barrel roll between screens):

You can also get [nearly] all Apps for free, but that's not legal, and is upto you if you do that. Jailbreaking does not equal piracy.


Sorry to quote but that theme looks brillaint, going to go try hunt it down now lol.

Not in relation to the iphone it's not.

A tethered jailbreak means that if the battery runs out or you restart your device it cannot be used again until you connect it to your P

An untethered jailbreak (which greenpoison is) means the device is like normal and if the battery runs flat or you restart the device then it will work normally without needed it be connected to your PC.



Ta for the info

You can set AAC to ringtone though b4 JB.

Yeah I know as I had to help convert some for someone recently via itunes.

They don't want to make it simple because they sell ringtones.

You have the HTC plugin? It uses the location of the default Apple weather App.


Yeah I have the clock + date but it just says 0 for the temp and no other weather for during the week either.

just did my iPad easy enough, but didn't like it, didn't see too much benefit for what i would use it for, plus i am think most apps are pretty good value for what they are.

Pros have been outlined by others but thought I'd mention the "con" of viruses. As jailbreaking unlocks the whole iPhone system to any apps you install, malicious ones can do damage. Just make sure you get your pirate apps from somewhere 'reputable' -- check the comments to make sure it's legit before you install.

Settings > Lockinfo > Plugins > Weather >Enabled.

Also single tapping the clock enables/disables the weather for the different days.


Thanks for the help (again lol)

There hasn't been a single case of this happening because a iPhone is jailbroken.

Happened a few times to apps bought from iTunes tho.
