    exactly what you said: you are broke free from apples lockdown on what you can and cant install on your phone.

    How do you change the background on each page to a different one other than the standard Black? This seems to be eluding me.

    Well, I may be confused because I'm doing it right but it's not working?

    I select WinterBoard and then check "use backgrounds" but they don't work.
    Is this because I'm use a 3G with v3.0 installed?

    Clearly after reading this something is not working right?

    Updated FAQ

    So i took the liberty to update this to aid other as this is well.... outdated this only applies to the 3.0 os on the 3g iphone

    Below are some of the most common questions I am asked during the day regarding the iPhone 3G
    :

    Im going to continue to modify this based on what comes up and other questions that are commonly asked.
    All items in discussion that take place on a computer are in a Windows enviroment, I have a Mac but dont use it so unless it specifically says this is for a Mac assume that it is going to be in Windows.

    Does the ipod touch apply to any of this info?
    Yes, The iphone and ipod touch run the same software so pretty much everything that doesnt mess with the phone should work on your ipod touch.

    Can I use my iPhone on another carrier other than AT&T?
    yes and no, if your phone is not jailbroken you cannot without the use of a turbo sim or Ultrasnow. There are a few requirements to software "Unlock" your phone.
    1. Jailbroken (its a cracked version of the os basiccaly and you need RedSnow to jailbrake it)
    2. UltraSnow
    3. Copy of the 3.0 software is needed can find it here http://bit.ly/iIA8A or restore yor iphone if you do the restore and your iphone aint backed up say bye bye information on your phone.

    Once you have met these requirements you are able to use your phone on any GSM carrier.

    How do I Jailbreak my Iphone?
    http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4301

    What is Ultrasn0w and how do I get it?
    Ultrasn0w is the software unlock for the iPhone 3G. With ultrasn0w you can unlock your iPhone 3G and use it with other carriers besides AT&T. You can download it by adding the ultrasn0w repo to your Cydia sources.
    The repo URL is repo666.ultrasn0w.com

    How do I know what Baseband I have?
    Not important who cares...

    How do I know what Firmware I have?
    To check what firmware version you have go to Settings > General > About > Version on your iPhone 3G.

    How do I unlock my Iphone 3G?
    http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/128573459/ultras-now


    What is cydia and does it come on all iPhones?
    Cydia is a package installer/manager for the Iphone and Ipod Touch. Cydia is usually installed on an iPhone via jailbreaking; it is included in QuickPwn as an item that the user can select.

    How do I get free paid apps on my Iphone?
    http://neorabid.com/iphone/archives/8

    DO NOT INSTALL miPatch Firmware 2.2.1 it will lock up your iphone 3.0


    What can I do if I download installous on my iphone and it doesn't work?
    Well you can either try reinstalling the app, changing the install method to "dirty", or do it the old fashioned way and visit http://appulo.us/ on your computer that you sync your iTunes to. On the site you do the same as you would as on your phone search then download. Once you have the file downloaded to your computer, open iTunes click your iPhone then click sync apps tab on the top right and choose to sync all apps [this step only needs to be done once!]. once you have setup your iTunes to sync apps double click the file you downloaded to add to your itunes library and the next time you sync your phone the app will be installed onto your iphone.

    What is Winterboard?
    WinterBoard truly is the modern replacement for SummerBoard. It is a program that allows the customization of your phone.

    How do I SSH into my iPhone?
    http://neorabid.com/iphone/archives/12

    How do I setup my iPhone so that I get a better battery life?
    Turn off the following:
    *Bluetooth [if not in use]
    *Location Services
    *Push email service, instead set it up to fetch in scheduled intervals.
    *3G - especially if you are in a bad coverage area
    Turn on your auto-lock if not in use

    I've Jailbroken my iPhone now what are can I do?
    If you follow this link, http://neorabid.com/iphone/archives/10 , you will find some essential programs to download once you have jailbroken your phone.

    Im tired of the same old stuff in cydia, is there any other places to find stuff?
    here is a big list of sources to add into cydia to get more apps, http://neorabid.com/iphone/archives/13.

    Where is a good place to get themes?
    cydia sources that contain extra themes not included already are: www.ipod-touch-themes.de/repo & http://ispaziorepo.com/cydia/apt/ & http://apt.guardiansofchaos.com

    I hate the touch screen keyboard, I wish it felt more like a real keyboard?
    well you just may be in luck! there is a program called HapticPro that is available that gives a slight vibration when ever you touch the screen. It makes you feel as if you where typing on your trusty old BB that your iPhone replaced. It is available for download through the cydia store for $2.99 USD.

    There is Haptic old its free i use it but be warned if you do alot of texting your batter will die faster so FYI

    I live in a rural area and cant receive high speed internet is there anyway I can use my phone for internet at the house?
    your in luck there are many programs that allow you to tether to your computer either via wifi adhoc connection or usb connection. PdaNet, modem & tether are the ones that come to mind for programs. I recommend PdaNet it allows for USB & WiFi connections whereas the others only offer wifi. Here is how to setup and use it http://neorabid.com/iphone/archives/14. The cost is $29.95 USD and can be attained through cydia.

    I want to use a video as my background, is there any way to do this?
    yes, through the use a program obtainable through cydia called "vWallpaper". This program allows for the use of .mov files to be used for background pictures. NOT 3.0 friendly as of 2days ago when i last checked

    What can and can't you do on iTunes if you unlocked & jailbroke it?
    You should be able continue to use iTunes as normal if your jailbroken, unlocked on other carriers may pose a few problems. Biggest issue is on the TMO using the software unlock you cant use 3G.

    Can you choose what programs you want to run in the background with that background program or will everything always be on?
    With the program "Backgrounder" you are able to choose what programs run, you simply run backgrounder once then to put a program in the background you just open the program then hold the home button for 3 seconds and it is put into memory. If everything was in the memory you wouldnt be able to do anything there would be none left.

    If I have wifi on and I'm talking on the phone, will IMs (assuming I'm running the background program) and e-mails come in or will they come in after I'm off the phone?
    Your phone should allow for emails to come in without running backgrounder. The IMs will continue to come in if you have your IM program running in the background.


    If I have a BB data plan can I use it on the iphone and vice versa?
    If you are using the BB data plan on iPhone you should be able to do everything but visual voicemail, If you are on an iPhone plan and you switch your sim to a BB you will only be able to use Media Net and will not be able to access the BB app world.

    Must have Software from Cydia


    Haptic - give you the vibration textile feedback when you press a key on the phone.

    MakeItMine - allows you to change the carrier name on your phone real quick great if your not on AT&T and walk into apple for a quick ?

    Pandora Controls - allows you to run Pandora in the background so you never have to pause a song again

    How too Get all trusted Cydia Sources:

    Is winterboard compatible with os 3.0?
    yes, but background images are not currently supported which makes it almost useless because your stuck with pretty much the same phone setup.

    I live in a rural area and cant receive high speed internet is there anyway I can use my phone for internet at the house?
    If you are on os 3.0 you can enable tethering without having to pay for anything other than your data plan. Currently not supported by AT&T as of 7-7-09 on but if you read on you can enable it and use it to your hearts content.

    How can I enable tethering right now on os 3.0?
    visit http://help.benm.at/help.php on your iphone and download the mobileconfig for your carrier. Then go to Settings>General>Network>Internet Tethering to turn it on and off.

    How do I use my iphone to power my home network?
    with internet tethering enabled on your phone you'll need the following for this to work:
    1. Patch Cable
    2. Router (I prefer using a wireless)
    3. Computer with iTunes 8.2 and a network card

    Tether your phone to your computer via bluetooth or usb. Connect the patch cable from your computer to the MODEM input of the router. Open up network connections and bridge the Apple Modem Connection and the Router Connection. Wait a few seconds and presto you have your network running off of your phones internet connection. I have been able to achieve speeds of 1.8mbps with 3G which is comparable to most DSL connections.

    *You may have to restart your computer or the router if you cant get it to work the first time.*
    The Funny thing is you will be able to connect to your wifi on your phone using your phones cellular connection.


    Can you choose what programs you want to run in the background with that background program or will everything always be on?
    no if your running os 3.0, If your still on 2.2.1 refer to earlier post on backgrounder.

    What programs are currently compatible with os 3.0? as of 7-7-09
    Not working (* means not confirmed by me):
    Backgrounder - Work will start soon
    BossTool
    FontSwap
    Homework Planner
    iBirthdays
    *iKeyEx and addons.
    iRealsms - Being worked on should be done soon.
    irealquicksms
    Quickgold - being worked on as an integration into spotlight.
    Lockdown - being worked on
    LogoMe - dev team is too busy
    MySMS - Now working
    Notifier - status bar messages dont go away
    *Searcher
    SpringJumps
    *textreader
    SBSettings AutoLock
    SBSettings Close Button
    *SBSettings User Agent Faker
    SBSettings Volume MC Widget
    Winterboard - Works except keyboard theming does not work.

    Recently updated and working:
    AptBackup - Updated to avoid overwriting saurik’s repository, but not tested by me.
    BiteSMS 4.0 or newer
    BossPrefs v3.0.1 or newer
    ClearCam 1.1.2
    iBlacklist 3.0-1 or newer. (I had a packaging error in 3.0)
    Insomnia 3.0.2
    MobileDTA 3.1
    Mobile Substrate - This is foundation for many apps like SBSettings & Winterboard. Recent bug was causing iTunes store to not load.
    SBSettings iPod Widget 1.2-1

    Working (not complete):
    Categories - confirmed working. No 3.0 compatibility issues. If you have issues with this its not 3.0
    CyDelete
    Docs - confirmed working. No 3.0 compatibility issues. If you have issues with this its not due to 3.0
    Flashlight
    SBSettings 2.99-4 or better
    SysInfo Plus
    Voipoverip3g
    List compiled by JHay

    Will Mobile Installation Patch work for OS 3.0?
    miPatch WILL NOT WORK on OS 3.0! Do NOT install it!

    Instead, install AppSync for OS 3.0. It has the same effect as miPatch: you'll be able to sync your apps to and from iTunes. But it's made specifically for OS 3.0.



    More to come I have just been super busy with life and the real world I havent been able to update. Keep the questions coming and i'll try my best to get them awnsered ASAP.

    Breaking it down by OS version will be some work but it may help those who are reading for the first time. It's easy to get confused if your new to JB.
