I would like to know some things before I attempt to Jailbreak my 3g iPhone...

1. Can I still use iTunes?
2. Can I go back to stock if I am un-happy?
3. I can still use my Gmail, IPOD, and have all the basics as stock like my current calendar?
4. What about all my apps, I either paid for or downloaded?
5. Any tips or very important do's and don’ts before I proceed?
6. And finally where's the best place to start the process?

Thanks again!

Yes

Yes

3. I can still use my Gmail, IPOD, and have all the basics as stock like my current calendar?

Yes

4. What about all my apps, I either paid for or downloaded?

You can still sync with iTunes, so you won't lose any of them.

5. Any tips or very important do's and don’ts before I proceed?

Do use Cydia and don't use Installer. (On the iPhone)

6. And finally where's the best place to start the process?

Here at EIC in the iPhone Modifications section.

Heres how I fixed my jb problem if you have any.

Make sure you have the .net 3.5 installed from microsoft.

Then follow one of these if you had any problems and could not get
it to work as of yet.



For Windows XP:

If you’re using QuickPwn on Win XP, please ensure the following Windows Service are started before jailbreak:
  • Messenger
  • Telnet
  • Terminal
To enable these services, you can launch “Control Panel” -> “Administrative Tools” -> “Services”. Then enable the above services if they’re not started.




For Vista:

Before launching QuickPwn and perform jailbreak on Vista, please ensure the following Windows Service are started:
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • Terminal Services
To enable these services, you can launch “Control Panel” -> “Administrative Tools” -> “Services”. Then enable the above services if they’re not started.
