Thanks
i jailbroke my iphone 4s and i didnt like it. So i deleted the cydia app and then tried to reset and then wipe my phone, now it shows the connect to itunes thing. How can i solve this?
Ok I first noticed this last night when I left my apartments Wi-Fi area, my phone was jailbroken on 6.1 so I thought it might have been a recent update in cydia that caused it, but to make sure, I first tried rebooting my phone, nothing, reset the network settings, nada, then I pulled the sim card and reinstalled it, still nothing, even restoring as a new phone, but still not data or 4G/LTE icon, anyone else have this issue?
by mistake i deleted cydia now i want to reinstall and restore the iphone in itunes. it started restore but while installing it firmware the error comes and it started again. i am tired of it. I also upgraded itunes.
i recently broke my iphone´s screen, i could`t use it, because every time i used it i cut myself on the shattered glass so i went to ebay and found one of the cheapest replacement screen i could find ( because i couldn´t afford having someone fixing it, or bying something of better quality). I replaced the screen, everything seemed to be going well, until i found out that the proximity sensor wasn´t working. It is really annoying when i am calling someone or answering a call, because i keep putting them on hold, deactivating the microphone or hanging up accidently. Is there any way to fix this, either actually replacing some hardware (if it doesn´t cost to much) or with a cydia tweak. i apologise for my any mispellings or mistakes, English is not my first language. thanks for your help

I have several apps that I have downloaded from iTunes, Google Latitude, and GPS+ pedometer, they both use Google maps. Does anyone know if these apps will still work after the upgrade to operation system 6, when they remove Google Maps. If they don't I'm not going to be real happy.
My friend recently jailbroke his iphone 4 but he wants to unjailbreak it, does anyone know how to unjailbreak it?and if so how do you delete all history and data of your iphone being jailbroken? He is selling his iphone 4 but the person he is selling it to wants it to be unjailbroken, he knows its currently jailbroken but he wants it back to Apple factory settings. I forgot to say the iphone 4 is currently jailbroken with cydia absinthe 2.0.2 untethered.
I don't know what is sim card support carrier? I try to unlock my iPhone 4 using Sam but still not work and then I remove Sam from cydia so my phone need to connect to iTunes. Pls insert sim card support carrier.

how to install cydia on iphone 4s after update iso 5.1 and i lost all my setting and cydia plese let me know if anyone knows
I also want to mention that Steve Wozniak or whatever mentioned that he uses an Android over the iPhone. Is that because he also realizes the limits of a non-jailbroken iPhone? Maybe if he threw cydia on his iPhone he could tuck that android in the closet.. You can do anything. Anything!! On it when it's JB.
i want to jailbreak my iphone i want to know if its legal??? only cydia!!! no cracked games...
I get this: Turn on cellular data or use Wi-Fi to access data This didn't happen when i was on the Firmware that came with it. Resetting network settings or any settings doesn't work either. My pedometer app says: GPS is not supported by your device Is this a joke?
did something on cydia,now i can't do anything on my itouch 4g. currently doing a restore using itunes. 43 mins left! Help me God!
Attention, freedom fans: here's how to jailbreak your iPhone 4 or 3GS, even on the very latest OS: Friday's iOS 4.3.1. That'll allow you to break free from Steve Jobs' walled garden o' family-friendly, parody-free tyranny. Richi's going to hook you up with the resources you need, in The Long View...First things first: understand the difference between a "jailbreak" and an "unlock". A jailbreak allows you to install apps from places other than Apple's App Store. An unlock allows you to use a different cellular carrier than the one blessed by your phone, and usually requires you to jailbreak the phone first. Both are perfectly legal, and jailbreaking does not encourage software piracy -- no matter what Apple PR may appear to imply.Second: understand the difference between a "tethered" and an "untethered" jailbreak. A if a jailbreak is said to be tethered, it means that the jailbreak is undone if you reboot the phone -- in other words, you must connect your phone to your PC or Mac to properly boot it. An untethered jailbreak is the gold standard, because you don't need to muck about with any of that nonsense.At the time of writing, all the jailbreaks available for iOS 4.3.1 are tethered. If you don't understand the implications of that, then go back and read the previous paragraph!You'll need to use a jailbreaking tool to tweak the version of iOS on your phone. If you're using a Mac, you'll want PwnageTool; on Windows, you'll want Sn0wbreeze. You'll also want iTunes version 10.2.1 and a copy of the iOS 4.3.1 install image already downloaded.All the links for these and their detailed instructions are below, but first, here are some top tips, learned from bitter experience. Ignore them at your peril: Back up your iPhone in iTunes before doing anything. Make sure you stop iTunes from automatically updating itself -- A long-term fear is that Apple may introduce anti-jailbreaking code into a future iTunes update, stop that software from auto-updating. Make sure you stop iTunes from automatically updating your iPhone -- iOS updates will almost always undo a jailbreak and you may find that new updates aren't jailbreakable (at least, for a few days or weeks). Plug your iPhone directly into a USB socket on your Mac or PC's case -- do not use a USB hub. Use a genuine Apple USB cable, or a 3rd party cable that you know to be of good quality -- some cheapo cables can appear to work fine for regular syncing and charging, but fail in subtle ways when jailbreaking. Be patient -- some of the steps involved in jailbreaking an iPhone take longer than you might think. If it appears to have hung, it probably hasn't. Set aside plenty of time to do the jailbreak; the last thing you want to do is interrupt it mid-process.As ever, take care; read and understand all the caveats, both here and in the linked articles -- lest you create an expensive brick. Neither I, nor Computerworld are responsible for anything you choose to do with your iPhone -- only you are.Taimur Asad is doing a consistently good job of explaining all the steps you need to take to jailbreak. Here are his guides to jailbreaking iOS 4.3.1 on Mac OS and Windows.Now what? Once you're jailbroken, you should see an app called cydia. Open that and the world of open iOS apps is yours. In a future article, I'll recommend a few of the apps I use.
i alredy jailbreak.my version is 4.1i am playing wit cydia and trying to remove one thing but suddenly it remove all my cydia!after tht i turn my iphone off but when i try to turn it on theres only apple logo blinking and keep blinking..help.. iOS 4
Hi guys, this is my first time posting and I am in desperate need of help!I have a jailbroken iphone 4 running 4.0.1 with baseband 1.59.00. It was all good until I had to reboot my iphone, which was where the trouble started. It wont reboot normally and is stuck on the apple logoo and will constantly loop.I tried restoring it through iTunes with the stock ipsw 4.0.1 firmware from apple but it wont work since apple doesnt sign the firmwre anymore. I havent had the chance to back up my shsh and I have just tried putting it in DFU/restore mode but Tinyumbrella wont recognize my iphone. I was wondering is there someway that I can back up my shsh onto my harddrive instead of cydia server and then do a restore in itunes? Is that method possible? Please help me I am in desperate need of my phone to work again and to preserve both firmware and baseband. Thank you guys in advance! Mac OS X (10.6.5)

Hi everyones;I have Iphone 3g 16GB phone. last time my phone just felt down on the ground and the cellular chip has broken and it has changed on China . And the guy just upgraded ios 4.1 to 4.2 with cydia. When my phone arrived to Turkey , I just try to Restore original Firmware that itunes downloaded automatically from apple server. I started to install but when the progress bar has reached %80 itunes occurs error that :##############################################################################Error 1015: ( I checked on APPLE web site , this error means This error is caused by attempts to downgrade the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touchs software. This can occur when you attempt to restore using an older .ipsw file. Downgrading to a previous version is not supported. To resolve this issue, attempt to restore with the latest iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch software available from Apple.##############################################################################I just dont get it , i didnt try to downgrade my phone or Jailbreak either. Just want to restore my phone with original firmware which is 4.2.1 .Tryed several times, I downloaded 3.1 from internet and restore my iphone with that old firmware.ITunes said same thing ( 1015 ) but when i used Recovery kicker , it escaped and switched on ! .

I bought a iphone 4 recently from the apple store in canada and brought it to india. We dont have the microsim facility here yet. So as a first time user, i took it to a mobile service center who said hell cut the card. Mine was an old Airtel sim. he cut it and tried to open the phone. But got the message as No sim. That service man thought its a locked phone so he inserted an AT&T sim and opened the phone and then tried my sim, but still no sim was the msg. He installed cydia in it. And told me that the phone is locked and u camt break it.!I took it back home, restored it and im gettin a msg as Insert a valid sim to activate iphone. What should i do? Iphone4 Windows XP
I downloaded cydia on my iPhone 4 today. but i dont want it anymore, i dont like it and the fact that you have to connect it to the pc when you reboot the device is driving me mad. please if anyone can help me remove it from my iphone completely, it would be great.thanks, alex.

Hi,I need to boost the volume of my key click sounds (Im using an iPhone 4 as part of a psychological experiment involving acoustic feedback).Its been no problem to replace the default key click sound (Tock.caf) with my own sounds (e.g. by using cydia and Winterboard in order to quickly load customized sound themes). However, the max volume for key clicks has been quite low since iOS 3.1: As soon as my sound is played back as a key click sound, it gets attenuated. If I play the same sound file over the built-in iPod, its much louder. Amplifying the volume of the sound file before uploading the file to the iPhone does not seem to change anything.Does anybody know where in the iPhone file structure the attenuation takes place? There has to be a file I can edit in order to disable the attenuation...Thanks and cheers,Klemens iPhone 4 iOS 4
hi. ive recently upgraded my iphone 3g from 3.1.2 to 4.1 and ive jailbroken it as well. ive been working on installing apps and cydia on it. today i noticed that my phone wont make that whoop sound after successfully sending a message and the new message icon on the top bar (next to the alarm icon and battery icon) doesnt show up. does anyone have a solution for this? iPhone 3G iOS 4
I know theres no stock option for this, but Im curious as to whether there are any apps -- in the App Store or in cydia -- that would allow me to hit hardware buttons and instantly be at the home screen. 15" MacBook Pro (06/2009) Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Hi everyone,Ive got a huge problem with my iPhone 3G Im hoping someone here can help me with. I wouldnt say Im technically minded but Ill do my best to explain the problem.All it does is constantly show the apple boot logo, it never actually boots to the springboard. It isnt being recognized by iTunes or the computer. It wont go into DFU or recovery mode, it wont even restart using the power and home key. The only way to get rid of the boot logo is to let it run out of power. I cant SSH into it either, the iPhone doesnt respond to the SSH client.Everything seemed to be working fine. It was running jailbroken 3.1.2, I then upgraded to jailbroken 4.0 which seemed to work okay. I unlocked it successfully and restarted it and all still seemed okay. The problem I think was with an app called APT Backup, because I used it to make a backup list of my cydia apps in 3.1.2 then tried to restore them on firmware 4.0. They appeared to restore okay but after it asked me to restart, thats when the problem started happening.Ive spent hours searching the google for different solutions but Im getting nowhere. I really cant afford to get it fixed by a repair shop so Id REALLY appreciate it if someone could help.Thanks very much,Jason iPhone 3G iOS 4

I've been trying to change the color of the keyboard on my iPhone, however, when I install settings that are specifically designed for that the change never happens. Im using cydia and the changes dont take effect in the select themes tab in winterboard. I'm not using a specific theme, so it should be working. Please help.

A couple of months ago, I jailbroke my AT&T iPhone running 3.1.2 and activated tethering. Seemed to work great. But after maybe 10 hours of tethered usage, the phone OS locked up and rebooting it left me at a permanent Apple logo. By the time this happened, Apple had released 3.1.3. But I had let cydia store my hash codes, so with considerable effort, I was able to download and restore to 3.1.2, rejailbreak using blackra1n, and restore tethering from that peacefulinsanity site. Twice since then, the same lock up then freeze at the Apple logo has occurred. When I've gone a couple of months without needing to tether, it never fails, but it now "feels like" that after a few hours of tethered use (somewhere between 5-20), it's pretty much guaranteed to lock up and require a full restore (I haven't tried one of the auto-boot recovery fixes yet, but I'm sure that I will get that chance sometime soon if I continue tethering.) Has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, do you know what's causing it and how to avoid it? Thanks.
Ill be traveling in the US for 3 months, but do not want to use my Austria-based Orange providers SIM card because of astronomical roaming charges, especially for data.I asked my provider Orange whether they would officially sim-unlock my iPhone if I prepaid the rest of my 2 years contract (5 months to go) plus the €40 unlock fee, but they declined, saying that Apple does not allow locked iPhones to be unlocked before the 2-year contract is over. ?!?I now have used cydia to jailbrake and and blackra1n to sim-unlock my iPhone (vers. 3.2) : another SIM card now works (although I also experience a sluggish iPhone, but that was even before the jailbrake!!!).My question: What plans (for voice AND data) are available in the USA that do NOT require a long-term contract, but say a monthly fee for as long as you use it? Who provides these, and what procedures are required to get it work?Thanks for pointers and suggestions.Cheers, VeitMessage was edited by: vburger MacBook and PowerBook G4 (i.e PowerPC), and MacMini (also PowerPC) Mac OS X (10.5.7) iPhone 3G (vers. 3.1)
Ok, so Ive researched and asked around a bit and am having a difficult time trying to understand the GPS for the iPhone 3G. My concern is that since I have the unlimited data plan for att, I was told that i could you the GPS (Location Services) for free as long as I stayed away from things such as att navigator. So is this true that I can use location services on Google maps and for picture taking on the phone unlimited with no surprise bills coming my way? If thats the case then I saw a FREE app that is like a pedometer and also uses the phones gps to show how far youve jogged, as long as the app doesnt charge a monthly fee im in the clear to use it absolutely free?And my next question is, since I have a long day at school I use the phone for internet and texting alot which obviously drains the battery quickly so if I were to switch the phone to edge during lectures would this make any impact on the phones battery life? -Thanks for any help provided! iPhone 3G iPhone OS 3.1.2
I jailbroke my phone and installed Winteboard and a lockscreen called Opel OPC, not realizing I was making changes to my lockscreen. Now, my phone is locked and I have no clue how to unlock it. I tried restoring my phone, but I still have the same lockscreen that I can't get past. I am desperate here and really need someone to help me, even if you have to download the OPC lockscreen through cydia so you can explain to me. PLEASE!!!!

My friend is having a problem on her iPhone 3GS. Whenever she receives calls from people in the phonebook, their names appear with no problem. But if she doesnt answer the call, only the number appears in the missed calls list and not the name.This is occurring on her phone with contacts which are stored with the country code (e.g. +966XXXXXXXXX). In the missed call list, the number appears as 0XXXXXXXXX. I tried to replicate this problem on my phone but I didnt have a problem; names showed up properly on my iPhone when she called me, and even in the missed call list, and her number was also stored with the country code in my phonebook.Both our phones are officially unlocked. I bought mine from Mobily (official iPhone carrier in Saudi Arabia) and she bought hers from Etisalat (one of the official iPhone carriers in UAE, which is also Mobilys parent company) but both have the exact model number. We are both using the same carrier in Saudi Arabia; STC (we can do this because the phones are officially unlocked). We also both synced our contacts to our new iPhones via Google Sync (we both migrated from the Blackberry 8900 Curve).I checked the regional settings on both phones, and we are both using the US settings (since Saudi Arabia isnt one of the available options)The only difference that I found was that she had iPhone OS 3.1.2 and I have iPhone OS 3.1.First of all, how can she fix this issue?Second of all, will I have this problem if I upgraded to 3.1.2?I checked on-line, and it seems that most people install a region-fix via cydia to support their countrys phone number format. However, neither of us are interested in installing cydia or using any unofficial fix. My phone is stock and so is hers, how come the numbers show-up properly on my phone? Mostly I read about people getting unknown caller when an in-coming call is received from a person in the phone book. This problem however is strange, since the number is obviously recognized when the call is coming in, and the name is displayed fine, but if not answered, the name doesnt show in the missed calls list.Could this be caused by the SIM card, or was something left out in the latest 3.1.2 update? iPhone 3GS iPhone OS 3.1 Macbook Pro
This guide will teach you how to unlock your iPhone 3G/3GS running 3.0 firmware using ultrasn0w. Step 1 I strongly recommend you backup your iPhone via iTunes BEFORE you begin this guide. Step 2 Upgraded your iphone 3G/3GS to 3.0 firmware via iTunes, jailbreak the iphone using redsn0w, install cydia or icy. Step 3 After your iPhone is jailbroken and installled either cydia or icy, run cydia or icy, add the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com to cydia or icy. Search for “ultrasn0w” and install it. Reboot your iPhone. Your iPhone is unlocked and you are done. Step 4 If you want to unlock the phone temporarily when you travel only, you need to install "BossPrefs" and "BossPrefs UltraSn0w toggle for Bossprefs" in cydia or icy. Simply search for the term "BossPrefs" and "BossPrefs UltraSn0w toggle for Bossprefs" and install both of them. You will have an icon "BossPrefs" on your springboard. Step 5 Trap "BossPrefs", and you will see few toggles, you can turn on and off the ultrasn0w and other functions. Tips & Warnings Make sure the “0” of the ultrasn0w is the number zero, not the letter “o” For T-Mobile USA user, please disable 3G before using ultras0w.
