Clueless on some mods

I have an iPhone running 1.1.1 that I "jailbroke". I can get apps on listed in the sources but am clueless on how to do additional mods, like adding nes roms (example). I know nothing of terminal and all the "step by step" instructions I have found seem to get me lost.

Anyone have the patience to answer a few questions or point me in the right direction to taking more control over my phone.

If it makes a difference, I am running an intel imac.

Thanks in advance
John

Sounds pretty simple. Thanks. Now one more question. Would you recommend updating to 1.1.2 and jailbreak that? I am in the habit of always keeping my software up to date, but don't want to create more problems.

Then look here

Ok so after failing, I need to downgrade to 1.1.1 and can't find it anywhere. Everywhere I look it says download from Apple, but I cant find it. Any ideas.

Also I got as far as running the 1.1.2 jailbreak but it got to the rebooting firmware screen and stopped fo hours, so i canceled and decided to start over.

In that folder that downloads there are 3 disk images, one that requires a password and 2 that wont mount.

From what I have read the file that I need ends in .ipsw and there is no such file in the download you pointed me to.

Am I missing something?

The link I gave you works. You have to join the forum there, that is why the password...join it. The download file is a zip file, it is the one you want, that is where I got mine.

So go to it.

maybe I was unclear. I joined, logged on, downloaded the folder, and inside were some disk images, but no . Iwsp file.

Did the one you used end in iwsp?

Not trying to be a pain but that's why I came here cause a lot of the answers I found lead me to dead ends.

I appreciate your help.

apparently the problem lies with safari. I used firefox and got a .ipsw file.

Thanks

I wound up getting the 1.1.1 firmware elsewhere, but am still having issues. I can get the firmware installed, but I get error 1015. I then have no network connection with att. Do I jailbreak that and then reconnect somehow?

I don't know if i made it clear, but I don't want to unlock the phone (use it with t mobile) just jailbreak it to add apps.
