iPhone Jailbreak

Postby Strong Eagle » Sun, 08 Nov 2009 3:56 pm

Does anyone here have experience with iPhone jail break? Have a 3gs running 3.1.2 and I need to understand if I need the activated or non activated version of the restore file... I think non activated.

He's offering a lot of stuff in that 'bundle'... and I think some of it is normally paid software... but worth a contact. Thanks.

You can take it to the guys in Lucky Plaza, they helped me with my iPhone. Yeoh Tat I think is the name of the shop? There are about 3 of them on the B1 or 1 level, any one should be able to help you or direct you to the right shop.

Actually doing the jailbreak is easy and requires only iTunes, thanks to the fact that some enterprising fellers have posted the jailbroke? OS on rapidshare.

There are two versions... one that 'activates' the phone, one that does not. All the descriptions I've found to date assume that you either have a locked phone (AT&T) or a phone that's already been unlocked nefariously... nothing about a legally unlocked phone like Singtel peddles.

But I'll have to drop down and check these guys out. Apple is chapping my ass... no Skype on 3G and a few more issues as well.

UK iPhone user (o2) can get theirs unlock for free. :D

http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/b ... 886886.ece

this is to allow iPhone users to move to another telco once their contract is up. somehow, i cant see singtel, m1 or starhub doing the same. they probably want to lock their iPhone users for life!

Singtel phones are unlocked by IDA regulation. Any sim card works. I imagine it is the same for other carriers.

No, I didn't say that at all. Jailbreak and unlock are two completely different things. Jailbreak permits you to download applications from somewhere other than the official Apple apps store.

Unlock removes the lock on a phone that permits it to be used with only one carrier. There is no such restriction in Singapore; the phone is factory unlocked when you get it.

You need to jailbreak a phone in order to load the software necessary to unlock it if you are stuck with a contract on AT&T or Orange or O2.

So, I want to jailbreak in order to load software that Apple won't approve but I do not need to unlock.

If you Jail Brake a iPhone, is it permanent or will it be over written by official Apple iPhone software updates?

It is not permanent. What actually happens is this. You either run a program that updates your software to jailbroke mode or you download the files that have been graciously place on the net, and use iTunes to update to the jailbroke OS.

Now, if Apple does put out an OS update, and you download an install it, you lose the jailbreak. Instead, what you do is wait for the 'Dev Team' to come out with the jailbreak for the latest OS version, then either get the latest program or file.
