i have really posted anything new for a while

really there hasnt been much point. i havent done anything amazing that isnt already posted by 50 other people. lately its just the basic jailbreak unlock load some stuff for the person fix a few screens etc.
i have heard though that a solution is found for bootrom and baseband stuff. cannot wait to see this the world will be a better place when this happens.
untill then redsnow is the best way to go with the ability to upgrade to ipad firmware on 4.1 and i believe 4.2.1 this has worked fine for me on a few phones.
there is talk that it might cause issues in future versions so just watch out for posts before upgrading past current versions.

any questions email me at

jailbreak 4.1

sooo ive been a bit slack lately... why you ask?? well to put it simply im a bit bored of it all lol.
i know theres a few answers now for jailbreak on 4.1 limera1n looks good and im actually going to run it up on 2 of my phones in the next couple of weeks but untill limesn0w is sorted (maybe it is now and i just dont know) then its not much good to alot of you. there is another jailbreak floating around which will work for people in my possition and keeps the existing baseband and installs ultrasn0w with the installation of cydia.. this i like as my main phone is a water damaged (it turns out) 3gs 32 with no working wifi... this means im stuck running 4.0.1 endlessley on this phone unless such a jailbreak works 100%.
i will let you know my results.

I hate new bootrom iphones

People need to stop selling iphone's that are running 4.0 in the ad but when they arrive they are running 4.0.2 or even 4.0.1 to be honest. its driving me nuts.
its fine with old bootrom i just down grade to 3.1.2 and then trick it to be 3.1.3 but with new bootrom im stuffed untill some one comes up with a way to falseify shsh files.... some one is working on this idea right ?

jailbreaking... the good and the bad.

i know some people are worried about jailbreaking their iphones and i think its mostly the name that does it.
but look at it this way. apple is continuously making new firmware updates each one locking out jailbreaking and locking your phone to a specified provider. if you dont like the new firmware version then bad luck you have to put up with it for good.
what the guys from cydia have done is they now log your shsh files for what ever versions of firmware you are using with a jailbroken phone which allows you to go back to older versions whenever you like. it allows you to personalise your phone with ring tones themes and all manner of things that apple could let you do but chooses not to.
you get access to heaps of free (not illegal just free) apps which you cant get on itunes (apple charges money for the right to submit an app and reserves the right to say no after they have taken your money this alone puts many people off submitting a app that will be free or accepted by a limited audience)
jailbreaking your phone is not illegal. courts have ruled that you are not breaking the law by jailbreaking.
apple is now persuing other ways to turn people off jailbreaking and hopefully they lose in this attempt.
i use jailbreaks to unlock the phone and to personalise it. i still use mostly all itunes legitimate apps and some others from cydia which arent available on itunes.
jailbreaking has not in anyway affected the performance of my phones.
please take the time to support such organisations as modmyi and cydia and the many many others who allow these freedoms with your iphone ipod touch and ipad products

Please dont update your iphone past 4.0...

3.1.2 is ok.. great for jailbreaking and to use but some apps wont run.
3.1.3 in my mind is the best everything at this point runs on it it jailbreaks fine.
4.0 is pretty good too just a bit slower nice to use though and JB is fine.
4.0.1 jailbreaks but its slow and pointless
4.0.2 is the devils work and should not even be considered its only existance is to make it so you cant jailbreak the phone. and its equally as slow as 4.0.1 because it is exactly the same apart from the JB.
4.0.1 is driving me nuts and because i have no shsh files for the phones im getting i have to put them back to 3.1.2 and thats where they have to stay.... this isnt very cool to be honest.

downgrade issue...

so i can down grade from anything to 3.1.2 no worries but from there i cant seem to upgrade to anothing other then 4.0.2... im wondering if this is due to a lack of shsh files on hand?
generally this isnt such an issue because im more then happy with running 3.1.2 but on some of the phones im working on i would like to be running 3.1.3 or 4.0.
any suggestions from anyone would be much appreciated
