OK I'm not to tech savvy, but I wanted to see if anyone can help me. I noticed a lot of people are nice with the 3rd parts apps. So the Question is this. I'm already bored with my iPhone an I would like to hook it up with custom backgrounds on the launch screen, The NES emulater thing,an just put fun an entertaining stuff on it especially voice recoreder an custom ringtones, but I'm not a hacker(far from it):oops:, and Im alil scared that when Apple does the next update in February it'll brick or damage my phone becouse I waisted a lot of loot for it almost two grand for 2 iPhones an a couple of hundred dollers of down payment for both phones (NOT:cool:!)...So can any one tell me a safe website that I could download an suck this iPhone dry because this phone is so HOT! I wonna do everything it could possibly do with out damaging it..

P.S. Is their any website I can go to unlock the sim so I can switch my AT&T sim to a tmobile one when ever I want with out any problems?..

THANKS ALOT TO ANYONE THAT TAKES THE TIME TO READ THIS AN CAN HELP ME OUT..YOU WOULD MAKE MY MONTH, FORGET MY DAY!:):)

This is a smart bit of kit that does 95% of what I need it to do. I could hack it around and add another 2% of functionality - but at the cost of introducing buggy code I can't trust, and the hassle of what will go wrong at the next update?

And besides the iPhone hasn't got the form factor to turn it into a portable server or terminal tool, or hacking uber-gadget, or super game console.

Nah, particularly if you're not technical - don't join all the "Help! I've killed my iPhone" members. Get an Apple TV and hack that in stead.

Just my onion of course

yup im on 1.1.1.what next?lol..thats for the reply too brill
use a wifi connection and visit jailbreakme.com. Scroll down and hit install appsnap. Your safari will crash and you will see downloading progress. Takes less than a minute. When its done u will have a new icon called installer. Open it up and install bsdsubsystems and openssh from system folder.
Then I recommend summerboard.
After that browse through the apps and install what ever u want.
Have fun.

I don't unlock to use with other carriers so I cant give advice on that.

If an update comes out you don't haveto update... thats 1
if you wanna update just restore your 1.1.1 to factory... thats 2
Summerboard is an extension of your springboard which allows you to change the theme... pre made themes with new icons and such... changes the look of the phone.. you will love it ... thats 3

If your gonna go up to 1.1.2 you need to jailbreak 1.1.1 anyway
I would stay at 1.1.1 for a few days to get used to your new phone...
when you are ready to goto 1.1.2 you will need the jailbreak program.. and will also have to install Oktoprep to your 1.1.1 phone..
you can find Oktoprep in the tweaks(1.1.1) folder in installer

you will not lose anything when you jailbreak 1.1.1... just visit the site click install takes 1min no joking
