    Took the plunge...

    Refurbed iPhone 4 arrived today. It was in tip-top condition and has been synced up successfuly. It came running 4.0.1. I Haven't noticed any death grip issues, yellow photos or proximity problems. It is a sweet little device, I must admit. And for $150, who could say no? :dft012:wink

    Help if you can, here are the particulars... 1. iPhone 3Gs running 4.0.1 JB'd 2. I used "erase content and settings" to ready it for sale, which seemed to cycle through 3. Phone rebooted and has been stuck on reboot since then. I can see that erase content didn't get rid of the jailbreak...

    Grooveshark

    So just curious who's jumping on the Grooveshark wagon, now that it's available? I'm still feeling the program out on my computer where it's free (which happens to be my favorite price), trying to decide if it's worth it to shell out a few bucks a month to have it on the phone too. I gotta...

    Is SBsettings Quirky on 3GS?

    Had a 3G and often used the free memory button in 'processes' to clear up RAM. When doing so, I always noticed a 5 second countdown then a considerable jump in the amount of operating memory. Now I've got a 3gs and here's what I notice: I press the free memory button and 95% of the time the...

    So I'm out of jail...quick follow up question

    I'm running 3.0.1 on a 3g and just jailbroke the phone without any issues using redsn0w. I remember reading a post on this site that I can still sync my phone to iTunes, even if it's JB'd. But I also remember reading something about backups. To wit: Is it true that the iTunes backup process...
