Hi, I was wondering, what do you actually get from jailbreaking an iPhone?

I currently have a 3g, what would I get?

Pros? Cons?

Thanks.

Fully modifiable iPhone, access to all files in system.

The ability to download apps directly to your phone using an app called Installous. Check the link below that covers all phone makes .

It's largely pointless.

Lol my ip4 is just as quick it's worth it just for lock info and barrel

Is Tom Tom on Cydia?

Tom-tom is on apptrakr then just sync across it takes ages on installous direct on the iPhone

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.

Badass, my wife has a jailbroken iPhone with cydia but we haven't a clue what to do. Ant help greatfully accepted. Cheers.

Can someone explain a bit more what teatherd actually means in terms my simple brain can understand

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, … 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.

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.

lolol

op be careful if you dont know what you're doing you could brick your £600 piece of slab

No chance or bricking it it's impossible ,fake operator on Cydia to change your network name and live clock is as stated

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.

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.

jailbroke my daughters ipod touch round chrimble time (cheers dcx_badass) used mainly for games, seen barrel theme above and had to try it (cracked one) now actually seen the true potential for the JB
