We published many different iPhone 3GS vs iPhone 3G tests results. Here is one that compares two devices running Cydia Installer:
There is a small tweak available in Cydia that likely will be relevant to all left-handed users. It is called "Slide To The Left" and does nothing more than change the direction of the slide. To download it you must add the repository PwnCenter: http://apt.pwncenter.com/ Use Winterboard to activate or deactivate the tweak.
Here is a demo of new version of app Stack that supports firmware 3.0. You can download it
DevTeam released Ultrasn0w - application that will unlock your iPhone 3G with firmware 3.0. Here are the instructions:
- Ensure you have upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0
- Jailbreak your iPhone using redsn0w (this will also install Cydia)
- Run Cydia
- Please add the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia. That last “o” is actually the number zero “0”! If you use the letter “o” you’ll get an error.
- Search for ‘ultrasn0w’ in cydia or icy and install ultrasn0w
- Reboot your iPhone 3G
- T-Mobile USA users should disable 3G before using ultrasn0w
It is always good to know what is working and what is not. This list will be changed quite soon, becasue developers are trying their best to make apps work. But for now here it is:
- Winterboard: This only works in some cases. The themes and can not be fully supported yet.
- Categories (works well but the applications are no longer found by Spootlight)
- Status Notifier
Applications not working:
- VideoRecorder for 3G
RedSn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking (iPhone 2G only) tool from DevTeam. It supports firmware 3.0 and iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation):
DevTeam released PwnageTool for firmware 3.0. Here is the list of supported deviced:
- iPhone 2G - jailbreak and unlock
- iPhone 3G - only jailbreak, use only with official unlocked iPhones
- iPod Touch - jailbreak
- iPod Touch 2G - not supported, use redsn0w
- iPod Touch 3GS - not supported
If you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should NOT use PwnageTool right now. Ultrasn0w is not included with this release and therefore your baseband will be locked and unable to use an operator other than the official one it was bought for. Ultrasn0w will be release via APT (cydia and icy) soon (update: Ultrasn0w released). If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.0 unlock works with this PwnageTool release.
Yellowsn0w in its current form will NOT work with the baseband version that is present in the 3.0 update, you will need Ultrasn0w, which will be released sometime soon, Ultrasn0w will work with all iPhone 3G models (but not 3GS), even ones that were previously unlockable, Ultrasn0w will be released via APT (this means you can get it via Cydia or Icy).
PwnageTool will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS. PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch (1st Generation) and the iPhone 3G.
You can donwload PwnageTool 3.0 here.
AppStore and iTunes are great. But when we want other useful apps we jailbreak and run Cydia. Some use Installer, others prefer Icy. Here is a demonstration of new app to install 3-rd party apps called Kryptes:
YXFlash is a new application that is available in Cydia and includes the codecs to display Xvid / DivX video files . We will not longer need to convert movies into a format supported by Apple. The converted videos do play a bit smoother due to hardware acceleration, but xvid videos are watchable, at least the ones I tested. The player also plays flash content if you have downloaded flash flv videos to your device. It is not a web based flash player, this does not play flash videos embedded on websites. In order to add the videos just upload them using iFunBox or iPhone Browser.
Here is the complete list of formats supported by the complete version:
- Flash Video -> .flv
- Mpeg4, H.264
- Windows Media Video (.wmv)
- Xvid/DivX (.avi)
- MP4, MP3, AAC and Windows Media Audio
The free version offers support only for MP3 and DivX. You can download the application via Cydia in the BigBoss repository. The full version costs around $10.
Backgrounder is an app that allows a user to run apps in a background. Since the last update the application makes available a process manager to monitor and manage the open applications.
In the new version svn.187 introduced the following changes:
- Added the possibility to close / to force the closure / make a respring through a swipe on the applications;
- It is no longer possible to initiate the process by the operator lockscreen;
- Multiple instances of the processes are prevented
- General improvement of the Code.
Once again we have the ability to have ants running on our iPhone. This little toy was available on firmware 1.1.x. Now the developer has update the code to support firmware 2.x. If you don’t remember ants take a look at the video below. This toy is easy to use. As you might remember you open the app and activate the ants. Then open your notes and watch the ants fill the screen. You can smash them or shake your iPhone to remove them. Ants is available in Cydia for jailbreaked iPhones.
3G Fuzzyband Downgrader is now available in Сydia. This should be used instead of 3G Baseband Downgrader for downgrading the baseband on phones containing the 5.8 bootloader.
Benefits over original downgrader:
- Does version checking, will only downgrade if phone is eligible
- Downgrades all versions of baseband from 2.30.03 to 4.26.08 (3.0 beta5)
- Reports current bootloader version on screen
The original downgrader was a possibly dangerous app, as it relied on a failed downgrade to decide whether downgrading was possible. Anytime you run BBUpdaterExtreme you are potentially doing damage to the modem, so the version checking in this app minimizes the chances of accidently corrupting the baseband.
Saurik had finished the bundle of Cydia for QuickPwn, working on Firmware 3.0. This includes major packages and extensions, like Mobile Substrate. Cydia for 3.0 will be ready before 3.0 firmware's release.
Need For Speed Undercover was released recently. Today we can download cheats via Cydia. They will allow you to unlock cars or to have lots of money.
The first will add $999.99 to our account. The second one will add $5M and release the two most powerful cars: the Porsche Carrera GT and Pagani Zonda F. To download this package (we recommend to put one and not both), you must add the following repository in Cydia (Manage > Sources > Edit > Add): iphone.org.hk/apt/
