iPhone 4, despite its signal woes is a beast when it comes to processing power and pure, raw speed (a lil’ better than 3GS). Jailbreaking iPhone 4 will give you access to themes, productive tools, unlock and more. I tested this approach with a 3GS, 3G and iPhone 4. It is a multi-iPhone jailbreak and requires no computer access! It is the same as described here but I wanted to document Cydia apps for iPhone 4.
Initially, I was unsure if Cydia is even needed for iPhone 4 with multitasking, wallpaper features enabled. We sure do need jailbreak to overcome outrageous Apple limitations! Without further ado, lets go :
Jailbreak part :
- Make sure your iPhone is activated. It is not possible without a valid iPhone SIM. If you don’t have one, please wait until another tool is released.
- Make sure you sync your iPhone to iTunes. This is important, just in case you know!
- If your iPhone is activated, you are 60 seconds away from a jailbreak. Connect to WiFi and launch Safari on your iPhone.
- Type in ‘jailbreakme.com’ in Safari and swipe the ‘slide to jailbreak’ button.
- Give it few seconds to do its thing! iPhone 4 will be jailbroken within no time! You will see Cydia icon on your homescreen when done.
Cydia part :
- Launch Cydia and choose ‘user’ when prompted to choose user type.
- Now, time for some cool apps on Cydia. Click on ‘Search’ and install the following apps. I am testing all the important apps. Some are crashing the iPhone! Please don’t download any and every Cydia app, some might harm/damage your iPhone. Following work great. Will update the list and add more info/description screenshots once I have a sizable list.
- Please post a comment if you feel a Cydia app or a theme shoulg be included in this list.
Apply nice themes on your iPhone. Just the wallpaper support in iOS 4 doesn’t cut it!
Connect to your iPhone using WiFi and transfer files or perform other operations (emergency). Trust me, you will need it!
Save your bandwidth! Download those videos that you watch often on YouTube. You can download multiple videos at great quality or just stream.
You will need this in some situations. If you don’t know what this is, then please install it and forget that you even have it.
