Awaiting Windows version
Ever since I upgraded to 5.0.1 and jailbroke it my device has been very sluggish; unlocking takes a few seconds, ipod controls will be unresponsive and memory is eaten up very quickly. Anyone else experienced this?
Also anyone who has a jailbroken iPhone, get FakeClockUp
All it does is speeding all default iPhone animations up but for some reason it seems everything is responding a lot faster
CLI tools for jailbreaking on Windows are out now.
Download them from here or use the link in the bottom of the latest post on http://blog.iphone-dev.org/ if you don't trust my link above (although they're exactly the same link). It says "The OS X version of the CLI" but Windows is also supported. It's the same file for both.
Anyway, download and unpack wherever you deem appropriate and navigate to that folder in a command prompt.
1. Once you're there make sure your device is unlocked (you can see the icons on your home screen) and then run "cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig"
2. A message about installing jailbreak will appear on the screen of your iphone or ipad. Just click install in the upper right corner. If it asks you for a password just leave the box empty and click on next or done in the upper right corner.
3. Then you run "cinject.exe -j payloads" from the command prompt and let it do it's work.
4. Eventually it'll tell you to run "cinject.exe -w" and enable the VPN option that's now appeared in the main settings menu. If it gives you some error about not being able to connect, don't worry about it, just wait a bit and eventually the device will restart.
If you typed out the "cinject.exe -w" command somewhere in the syslog that it dumps out you should spot the words ”pod2g is in da house!”
After the restart is finished you should be jailbroken and find Cydia somewhere on your homescreen.
I kept getting this error saying "FATAL(__LINE__): Assertion failed (1266): got == sizeof(size) 1266" after step 3.
I did a restore using the settings on my ipad (General > Reset > Reset All Settings) and then started over. This in itself wasn't enough though, I had to run the command from step 1 twice before it would accept the command from step 3 so maybe reset wasn't actually necessary. Anyway, keep at it and it'll probably work.
I cant update my iPod to 5.0.1, everytime i plug it in, iTunes stops responding.
Should I jailbreak my iPhone 4? I'm not entirely sure if it's still a safe thing to do, as I had software issues before due to jailbreaking a while ago. The only benefits I really see aren't that major now with iOS5
Depends, if there's nothing to gain then there's no point.
Okay, managed to update to 5.0.1.
I use it for a shitload of things, fakeoverclock, emulators, Win 95 emulator, tether WiFi...
Any apps worth buying?
Cydia ones, that is. I've got Parallax.
I'm really digging blurred NC. It gives a really nice look, even with default settings.
My favorite Cydia apps were always FiveIconDock and SBSettings. Both are extremely useful.
Are there any Cydia tweaks that can significantly make my iPod Touch 2G any faster?
I've got that installed, but many things just hang for 3 or 4 seconds before doing anything, mainly opening folders and exiting apps.
I have it set to x 2.5
Sorry to ask so many questions now I looked around a little but didn't find anything useful on google.
The new 5.0.1 untethered for A5 does it work for the iphone 4 aswell or is there a seperate version available for it? I'm also currently on ios 4 so if I just update with itunes will I get 5.0.1 or is there a newer version out?
Is anyone having trouble using SSH with their phone? I'm using Winscp, have the IP, root alpine and all that junk but it won't connect
"ABSINTHE is now setting things up, please stand-by..."
update / restore to 5.0.1 asap as apple is rolling out 5.1 soon which will patch the vulnerbility.
i recommend a restore to start a new / clean state if you backed up yuor stuff correctly.
if so, i recommend using ifunbox.
My battery seems to be dying hell of a lot faster!
Dropped 72% in 5 hours. I'm unjailbreaking once I get home...
Rating dumb without explaining why. THANK YOU KIND SIR!
i have like 15 tweaks on my phone, excellent battery life, iphone 4, 5.01.
do the usual battery saving tips and do some of the deeper research yourself.
Because on your iPhone/iPod you install ControlPad and that will turn your device into the controller
Also need some good Cydia apps for the iPad
Going To have to jailbreak when my warranty cuts out fucking parents
have you installed afc2add? install the openssh sbsettings toggle and switch the toggle on too.
if just transferring files i don't see why ifunbox doesn't suffice. what i don't get is the themes part, unless you want to transfer the themes to your computer for some reason.
Some themes aren't on Cydia. Anyways, I just use iFile + Dropbox now but it's a huge hassle.
