Jailbreaked iPhone 2.0.1

August 11, 2008

I am not sure why I am writing about this, everywhere you look its iPhone or Olympics and its probably getting on your nerves as well.  However I have nothing else to do so I thought I would share my thoughts on the process with you AGAIN.

I recently jailbreaked my iPhone 3g when the original Pwnage tool was released for 2.0  I really couldn’t see a benefit and quickly restored to original firmware.  I have no idea why I did it again but I did.  This time as well as Cydia, we have the original installer tool present as well.  So maybe its time for a few decent apps to start appearing on the platform.
The process was as before very simple and easy, no slip ups at all and if you follow the guide which I posted last time you will have no issues I’m sure.
This time I decided to install winter-board, a theme orientated application that alters the look of your iPhone along with a few tweaks namely the one for changing the colour of the signal bar.  The themes are easy to download and work in much the same way as downloading stuff from the app store works.
Results are varied depending on theme I guess and some are easier to make out than others to, so although some might be very pretty everyday usage might turn out to be a pain.  They also have the NES emulator on there ready for download, my understanding is that more and more apps are being added all the time.  Hopefully in the next week or so it might actually be a genuine reason for jailbreaking your iPhone, as yet I cannot really see the point.

Ok having been bored today I decided I needed some excitement, so I set about reading the guide over at mactalk.com.au written by WhiteiPhone which is easy to understand and so so quick and easy. You can find the guide here.
All in all it takes about 10 mins after you have downloaded the files, both of which have links to them on the guide. There is not much on CYDIA but who cares, I put myself a custom operator logo and I will wait for more programs to come as time goes.

All in all pointless really but at least I’m equipped for the apps when they arrive
