Download an app called `Installous` from `cydia` (cydia should of installed with the jailbreak).

Then browse or search from `installous` for what you want and it will also install the app for you (no need to connect to pc).

1ST thing you need is a flash app as the iphone doesn`t support flash due to apple not letting adobe port it to iphone for some silly reason confused

Yo, Just to advance on what ste said, when you open cydia you may need to add a repository.

off the top of my head i think it is http://cydia.hackulo.us/

Then do what ste said.

The market will charge 25 for jailbreaking, but ideally you need to know how to do it yourself, it's not difficult (it's free) and helps if you need to connect to iTunes for some reason so that you can do it again.

If you unlock it properly via Orange (as we discussed earlier, and I quoted much less than 40 laugh ) then although you'll be able to use any sim in it the main reason people JailBreak is to enable them to download apps for free rather than using the App Store.

Willo just go on the Internet on your iPhone and type www.jailbreakme.com
That's how I done my iPhone 4, depending on what firmware you have installed it may or may not work but it will tell you anyway.
It took me about 1 minute and it does it for you without connecting to the pc.

This is what you see when you goto the site willo...

It's easy and safe, just slide the slider across, simple as that.
I used this on my iPhone 4 when it was 3 days old, had no problems with it.

Re: iPhone - 8th Jun 2011 8:22am

Leave it to dry out for a long period, then see whats what! Second vote for Starlight from me, long established business and good reputation, used them a few times for phone repairs over the years, always done a spot on job for me, up-front and honest.

Re: iPhone - 8th Jun 2011 10:40am

Thanks willo, but in the case of the iPhone if it's seriously water damaged I wouldn't advise getting it repaired (unless you really wanted to), either at my place or the more expensive place in Birkenhead Market smile

I know it's a lot to fork out but as long as the phone is a genuine iPhone and you haven't had a cheap Chinese copy screen/digitizer fitted (easy to tell, no comment on which place fits them laugh ) then Apple themselves will swap it for you.

You need to book an appointment with the Genius bar (you can do this online) and the Liverpool Store is the closest, it'll cost you 139 and for that you get a nice shiny new iPhone.

The problem with repairing water damaged iPhones (and we've been doing this for longer than anyone else on Merseyside) is that if it became REALLY wet you have to replace the LCD, the digitizer can lift from the frame and the water gets trapped in the multi=layer board, which can cause problems weeks or even months later.

IPhones have water indicators inside the charger socket, the headphone socket, and there are four on the board, these will all show so warranty is completely out, at least with a replacement as well as being shiny and new you do get a new limited warranty.

We have (successfully) repaired phones that have been in drinks, the bath, the toilet (it was clean water...honest) and even one that survived a full wash and spin cycle, the one singular thing I would stree is DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON. This is the point at which your phone dies, if you straightaway take it apart (battery out), dry it out, then take it to somewhere that that can properly clean the board you have a good chance of getting your phone back working again.

If you want a genuine unlock from Orange it'll cost you 40 for us to do it, the JailBreak is free.

It does take a while for Orange to notify iTunes of the unlock, so you can either leave it with me to it or keep hold of the phone until they say it's done, then just connect it to iTunes with a sim card in it's locked to and it will unlock.

Thanks for that, if I was going to advertise I would have at least mentioned the name of the place, or maybe that's part of the fun, you have to guess smile

I've always found Bigabyte to be friendly and reasonably priced unlike Starlight who I find expensive and curmudgeonly.

Are there any risk attached with unlocking thing like likelihood of the device getting damaged?

I asked this for it looks like it is just a normal thing to deal with while reading this thread.

Re: iPhone - 10th Jun 2011 1:25pm

No risks apart from warranty.

LOL

Have to agree, don't take it into Apple with Cydia loaded onto it, they don't take too kindly smile

To keep your warranty, or take it into Apple, all you have to do (especially with the new 4.3.3) is to put the phone into Restore mode, press the Shift key key on your keyboard when you click Restore on iTunes and reload the 4.3.3 software (from a stored file on your computer) onto the phone (you can download it) as if you try to do it straight from the server (via iTunes) it can fail
