I'm almost a convert. I guess one of the things that's kept me from doing so is that early in my iPhone ownership, I downloaded an app that warned on its page that it would not work with jailbroken phones.

What about iMessage?

Oh, and where do I start?

iMessage works fine with a Jailbroken iPhone.

http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

The download links are just below the first post on their blog page.

Here's a little info on what to expect:

Most of all, be patient. There are going to be a couple of times during the process when it seems like nothing's happening.

Question:

Have not attempted JB yet......What is up with the highlighted blue text below?

thanks
BR

1. Download Redsn0w for Mac and Windows.

2. Run Redsn0w, click on "Jailbreak" and check "Install Cydia". Follow the instructions on the screen.

3. Wait and be done.

That simple. If you have an unlocked iPhone you should choose the custom IPSW option to preserve it. Like always, if you do this and things break, we're not responsible for it (but don't worry, it should work—and you can always go back to the original Apple firmware).

Jailbreaking and unlocking are two different things. Jailbreaking just frees your iPhone from Apple's restrictions. Unlocking frees your iPhone from your carrier. In other words, you could unlock your AT&T iPhone and use it with a MetroPCS SIM card. The visual voicemail and some of the other carrier related niceties won't work with MetroPCS, but you won't have to worry about an AT&T contract.

Both the jailbreak (Redsn0w) and the unlock (Ultrasn0w) upload a patched version of the iOS firmware to your iPhone. If you apply the jailbreak after the carrier unlock, without using the customized firmware (IPSW = iPhone Software) you can overwrite your unlock. If you do that, it's no biggie. You can always unlock it again.

Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 is available.

http://www.redmondpie.com/absinthe-j...-download-now/

Edit: By far the easiest Jailbreak I've ever done. No pfutzing around with putting the iPhone in DFU mode. Just run the program, and it's done.

Doing it now.

Jailbreak appeared to go fine. Only took about five minutes.

Now restoring my 72 apps and about 100 podcasts. That'll take a little bit.

Jamie

[edit] Scratch that. Having some issues. Re-synced my phone, everything appeared normal, but now I don't have any phone, message, App Store icons on the phone, plus probably a couple others. No Cydia or Absinthe icons either.

Ok, got it straightened out. I think it was something I was doing wrong.

So.... now what? I'm staring at my phone and it looks and responds exactly the same as before. I clicked on the Cydia app, which ran some file structure process, then I opened up Cydia and I'm staring at the app...

Another nice thing about Jailbreaking your iPhone is it gives you access to the file structure. Within the file structure, if you navigate to private/var/mobile/Library/Keyboard/dynamic-text.dat you can fix all the f(#$*king stupid "auto-corrects" your iPhone has learned with nothing more than a text editor.

That's pretty much it. It doesn't do anything drastic to the phone. It looks the same because it is. It's just letting you do the changing now rather than being stuck with what Apple says you have to.

Read this: http://www.redmondpie.com/top-must-h...5.1.1-edition/

Start installing a few items.

Get SBSettings.

Pay for BiteSMS. It absolutely kicks the native "Messaging" app's ass.

Take a look at iBlackList. It's a firewall for your iPhone. If you don't want to hear from someone, add their number and/or e-mail to a blacklist and they don't get through. As far as you're concerned, they no longer exist.

Install Winterboard and change your iPhone's theme.

Install OpenSSH and do a google search on how to get access to your file structure in order to do things like change your messaging tones or edit your "auto-correct" dictionary.

Install the NotiQuiet tweak to give you control over those pop-up messages that kick you out of whatever app you're in.

I bought LockInfo to give me a quick glance at any messages, reminders, weather, e-mail, etc. by simply pressing the power button at the top.

I bought MyWi so I could turn my iPhone into a WiFi hotspot without paying AT&T US$20.00 per month for simply allowing me access to a feature built into the damn phone.

Lots of stuff for you to start having fun with.

Thanks.

As a quick test, I just successfully removed the incorrect "Littke" that my iPhone "learned" in my haste to fire off a text message from the Dynamic-Text.dat file. If it suggests anything, it now suggests, "Little", which is what it should.
