I describe all the good third party apps in the original post. Like I've said, just open up iBrickr and it will tell you what to do. Installer will show up once you click Applications and then Browse Applications in iBrickr. You're too nervous man, just do it.

Nothing will happen to damage your phone. You can always restore it.

You will be amazed at how clean, professional, and easy these mods are. Your iPhone will be extended over 100%.

I've never seen a phenomenon like this for a phone before. It is simply crazy. There is a sketching app now!

None of them appealed to you? I would assume the whole reason you wanted to add apps was due to, well, the list of apps in the first post of this thread.

I could never go back to "normal." Between Mobile Finder, Mobile TextEdit, rSBT, Summerboard, NES, Books, Frotz, Dock, RSS, and Terminal I don't know how I even made it through my "stock iPhone" dayz. :cool:

Mods are certainly NOT dishonest or illegal...

I do feel it's a waste of time for a couple of reasons. First, none of the third party apps are that great. The NES emulator is a cool hack, but not much more. Second, a future update is likely to undo all of your modding anyway... There is also the possibility that you could brick your phone too, but it looks like that is less likely as time goes on.

But hey, I'm not against it in any way and in fact I cheer on the hackers! And If you enjoy tinkering with your iPhone, then by all means, mod away. It's yours to do what you like with.:laugh2:

very helpful discussion and tips -- it had me almost willing to give it a try --

BUT BUT BUT ---- as a service to fellow board folks you really need to add a note to first post that this thread is for Windows folks only ---- wasted the entire read, went to DL iBrickr only to find out that it is Win only program.

Thanks

Then I find there is something called iFuntastic but not sure it is as easy as you make this sound for one thing and for another it is intel only so outa luck again.

I still remain leery of doing all this stuff. You seem to hedge a little on the Notes question as to whether or not you lose them in a Restore -- I know you can email them to yourself but I use them for much impt info I want available on the phone. What about recent emails -- do you lose all them? and all your email settings?

i guess I just don't see any "must have" add on apps that make this worth the time and effort and risk. Perhaps one day.

Is there a way to remove individual apps that I have added, other than doing a complete restore?

things that are lost when restoring, re: restore

Every time I have synced my phone and then restored it, and then synced again, my notes appear back on there. Not only my notes, but all my contacts, and even all my settings. Once again, if you're really nervous, you can email the notes to yourself just in case. But I can testify that the notes have always synced back into my phone after a restore.
When I did my restore my notes disappeared. I was using the latest updated software and had synced just before. I also lost my voicemails and the "favorites" on my call list (not bookmarks). So to be fair we should mention that there is a very good chance that things will be lost in the restore, just not major things (unless you had a real important voicemail you wanted to keep). I am not anti-hack at all, just saying potential "hackers" need to be aware of all the pluses and minuses.

I played with modding and but had to do a restore when updating to the latest software version. In the process, I lost all of my photos. :(

Since then, I've decided not to mod.

It's easy to back up your photos. Just copy them all over to some random directory on your computer before you mod.

Yes. If you installed them via Installer, just open up Installer and click on the "Uninstall" tab to pick the program you want deleted. If you didn't use Installer, you can just delete the folder of your app out of the "Applications" directory.

Haha ok good to here. Your wanting to "do it this weekend" and not now or later today makes it sound like you feel like you need to really prepare yourself for this. I think it's funny how nervous people are about it :p. You're gonna laugh once it's modded in 2 minutes and you see how easy and stress free it was.
