Hey guys, well my friend just got his iPhone replaced.
And I didn't dress out today in Gym so he asked
me to hold his iPhone for him while he was playing soccer.
So I did, and I wanted to see what he had on his phone
and when I tapped safari it asked for a password?
It was 0000 (manufacture) lol but this really
freaked me out lol because I really wanna do it
to my phone. How do I do this?
Idk if it's just his phone or not, because
he got his replaced about 2 weeks ago.
Mines is still a March returned model.
We both are running 2.2, so can you guys help?
thanks! :laugh2:

Ummm i am at it, but I don't see it. It just makes whatever I restrict disappear. I want it to stay there but when I click it, it asks for a password to get in.

Whoa... you're right! I've never tried it, but I just enabled it and all sorts of stuff started disappearing.

I honestly don't know what's up with that. Seems like a bug... possibly with jailbreaking. Good job on fnding it!

your welcome y'all!
Its' a real cool thing!
iWould love to lock up my pictures
iPod, and texts and stuff
it's a real cool feature.
And I think it has somethnig to do with jailbreaking
because his iPhone is indeed jailbroken.
I hate that basta*d! Apple refused my iPhone
and told me pay up 200 and we swap it out.
But he came into the store as soon as I was leaving
and HE LEFT WITH A BRAND NEW (well refurb)
iPhone! I WAS SO MAD! UGGH! but all well.
My fault for buying a used iPhone. But Back to the topic
I wanna know what that weird app or w.e is.
If it's jailbroken and you got it please share!

Ok nvmd, supposedly version 4.0 doesn't crash the phone.
Still, as much as I wanna download, I'm not going to.
I'm left skeptical about it. So I guess
I Am Not Downloading it.

If his iPhone (his=friend) crashes
then I will know why Lol. I'll
let him figure out for himself why it crashed
because he thinks he knows more
about jailbreaking than I do.
BTW If he was smart, he woulda used quickpwn to jailbreak
2.2, he used winpwn, smarta$$ lol.
BTW, his iPhone is REAALLLL Laggy!
i mean its very bad, AND ITS ONLY 2 WEEKS OLD.
So im guessing some of these jailbreaking apps
are doing the phone bad.

So what's wrong with using pwnage instead of quickpwn? Quickpwn has jacked my phone up every single time, pwnage has not... I consider myself "smart" and have been jailbreaking from the days of appsnap....

I'm honestly curious why you think one is better than the other? Also, pwnage prevents the baseband upgrade so there's still the potential to do a software unlock in the future...
