So you want to sell your iPhone on Craigslist, Ebay, or wherever, but you're worried about someone seeing your contacts, old pictures, etc.?
Here's a good way to make sure that no one will be able to retrieve your old data.
I've started to get the hankering to play with an old first gen iphone. It has 4 gigs of hard drive just going to waste. The screen is nearly unusable. So here we go:
How do I turn my iPhone into a usb Flash Drive?
I want to wipe all of the Apple software off and instead install something like the Portable Apps suite. Then I can use it just like I use my Thumb Drive but with the extra cable.
I've done a little bit of Googling. Whatcha got DoGG? Am I gonna have a project for this weekend or not?
According to a press release on Wednesday by iCall, Apple will now allow VoIP calls over cellular networks. This is a HUGE change from Apple's previous agreement with AT&T which only allowed VoIP communications over a WiFi connection.
So the rumors are circling but it looks as if Apple will cut the exclusive ties with AT&T and open the iPhone to other carriers. When is this going to happen? Word has it there will be a announcement on Wednesday.
alright, so before when i found out about this, i ignored it, just thinking it was a way to play mobsters on your iphone, but now i see thats its a good way to reap GF points, so i ask the question, is anyone willing to do this for me with a jailbroken iphone? If you can please send me a PM and I can give you my info (the tuna #)
* If didn't jailbreak with Blackra1n like in this thread and used PwnageTool then you want to use this method to unlock your iPhone.
Once you are done with the jailbreak, you can now unlock your iPhone running jailbroken firmware 3.1.2 by using blacksn0w RC1 from Cydia. To do this:
Start “Cydia” on your iPhone.
If you have a restore file goto step 2
1. Download a restore file make sure it ends in .ispw there are alot out there that work ! Now if you ended up restoring to 2.x or anything lower than 3.1.2 you can hook up to iTunes after you restore and upgrade to 3.1.2
2. Launch iTunes and shift-click on the Restore button (option click for Mac users). Then browse to the restore file you downloaded or had saved and let iTunes do the rest.
*** USE THESE instructions for 3G & 3GS Only
NOTE: Only do this if you already updated to OS 3.1.2 - also read precation on bottom before starting !
