Requirements: Jailbreak iPhone

iWalkie is an app which 2 people can use their iPhone to communicate to each other. Both iPhones must have their bluetooth enabled for this to work. I have tested this on iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 4, works perfectly through 2 timber walls. I have not yet to try on concrete walls, hopefully tomorrow I will do further tests.

A lot of my friends have been asking me to jailbreak their iPhones either custom ringtones or something else. I wonder why they want to anyway, unless they want to download free apps, custom themes, additional tweaks and so on.

I managed to come up as many notes as I can about the jailbreak, whether it’s worth to jailbreak your iDevice or not. Okay, here we go.

Custom Ringtones

Unjailbreak iDevice – You can have custom ringtones, this can be done via a ringtone software or app (Check AppStore) and sync through iTunes. This may take a while but I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it.

===

Jailbreak iDevice – There are a few methods on how to add custom ringtones.

Method #1
Go into Cydia >> Sections >> Ringtones >> [Choose a ringtone] >> [Tap on] Install >> [Tap on] Confirm >> [Black Screen, downloading ringtone from Internet. Tap on] Return to Cydia.
[Tap on] Home Screen >> Settings >> Sounds >> Ringtone >> [Scroll down until you see your downloaded ringtone]

Often ringtones will need to be enabled via Winterboard

Method #2
If you have downloaded/converted ringtones on your computer, you can drag and drop to your ringtones folder.

Info will be up soon! Focusing on main points first.

Custom Themes

Unjailbreak iDevice – Trust me, you cannot change anything other than Home Screen, Lockscreen Wallpaper.

Plugins and Tweaks

Unjailbreak iDevice – Not much on the original iOS4, unless you really want those cool plugins and tweaks,

===

Jailbreak iDevice – A list of cool tweaks which I have on my iPhone 4:-
iBlacklist – Block contacts, SMS. An iPhone Firewall. Highly recommend to install. Commercial App.
iScheduler – Send SMS/Open an app at a specific time, date. Commercial App.
ToneFXs - A sound setting menu for ease and navigate in one place. Highly Recommended. Commercial App.
Installous - Install free and paid apps. Highly Recommended.
Infinidock – Add as many apps on your dock (I currently have 15 apps) Highly Recommended. Commercial App.
FolderEnhancer – On the original unjailbreak iDevice has a limitation, if you had this plugin. You can have as much as apps you want to put. Highly Recommended. Commercial App.
MyWi 4.0 – Using your 3G as a wifi hotspot. It’s great if you do not have a dongle, use your iPhone hotspot. Highly Recommended. Commercial App.
MakeItMine – Change carrier or banner name.
MultiIconMover - Move more than 1 app to your selected page or folder. Highly Recommended.
PwnTunes – [Drag and Drop music files via My Computer >> iPhone >> My Music] Simple as that. Skip iTunes and use PwnTunes. Highly Recommended.
SBSettings - Enabling services with a swipe at the top bar. Very easy to use. Highly Recommended.
Tlert - Text messages appear on any app, without closing the app or in the middle of the game. Customise the text colour, message bubbles and more. Highly Recommended.

I’ve received a huge number of people asking me for help regarding the JailbreakMe.com software. The reason why you are having difficulties is many users around the world accessing the same site as you which is crashing the server.

Just keep trying until your iDevice has jailbroke. It will definitely work eventually. Post your comments below or send me an email chinwei@live.co.uk if you still have issues.

If you are having issues with your iDevice such as the following:

  • Request Timed Out Errors
  • Purple Background
  • Sliding does not work
  • Download Froze

Request Timed Out Errors
Many users are facing this error due to the fact a high volume of users accessing the same resource in one go. So I suggest you to try again in 5-10 minutes.

Purple Background
Same answer as above. Keep trying and refresh the page. It will work eventually.

Sliding does not work
It does work. After you have entered jailbreakme.com in the Safari, wait a few seconds and you should be able to slide.

Download Froze
If for some reason your download has stopped, refresh the page and redownload it again.

Do you want custom ringtones for your iPhone? Default ringtones sound dull, why not have your favourite artist on your iPhone today. Your iPhone must be jailbroken to use this feature (there is an alternative way, will be posting a guide up very soon), and you can use your existing songs for your ringtone.

1) Go to Cydia and Search for Ringtones3
2) Install the app
3) You should see the app on your Home Screen. Tap on it.
4) A picture of a guitar is displayed, wait a few moment.
5) Tap on Start Converting
6) List of your playlists, albums, songs on the page. Select your chosen song.
7) You will have 2 options, for quick and easy process. Tap on Quick Conversion.
8) Wait a minute or two.
9) Upon completion, go to Home Screen.
10) Settings >>> Sounds >>> Ringtone
11) Select your converted ringtone as your default ringtone.

Note: This plugin does not work on the latest firmware iOS4

Look at this website, another one which I saw on my facebook. Someone recommend this site for unlocks and jailbreaks and it actually worked on him. There are no paid jailbreaks however there is a small fee to unlock your iPhone done by a mobile specialist or via your mobile network provider. Other than that if you are patience you can wait until the free iPhone unlock to release. Which it will be available tomorrow, or some time this week.

Do not pay unlocks/jailbreaks via IphoneUnlocking.com, save your cash for free unlocks/jailbreaks. Respect the creators work.
