How do I jailbreak my iPhone 4s

"Jailbreaking" is a process that unlocks your iPhone 4 from iTunes, allowing you to install software from the third-party Cydia application store. The apps on Cydia do not have to pass through Apple's approvals process, and often offer functions that are otherwise prohibited by Apple's terms and conditions. Jailbreaking your iPhone can be achieved by visiting a website in the device's web browser that automatically installs Cydia, and the operating system changes that allow it to run. Jailbreaking your iPhone is entirely legal and safe, but does void the device's warranty with Apple. Download and install the latest version of iTunes onto your computer, following the instructions detailed on the Apple website. Connect the iPhone 4 to your computer using its USB cable, and click the "Sync" button in the lower right corner of the iTunes window. This will back up your iPhone 4 prior to jailbreaking as a safety precaution should you need to restore it. Launch your iPhone 4's "Safari" web browser by tapping its icon on the home screen. Click on the link " " This will take you to the JailbreakMe website. Tap the blue "Free" button in the upper right corner, and then tap it again when it turns green and its text changes to "Install." This will download and install the Cydia app store on your iPhone 4, and begin the jailbreaking process. Launch Cydia by tapping its icon on the home screen once installation has completed. Tap the "Complete Upgrade" button, and Cydia will be updated to the latest version. The iPhone 4 will reboot to complete the jailbreaking procedure. Hope this helps.

How do i block a phone number on ipone3

  • Hi

    Make sure the data connection on the iPhone is turned on. This means that regardless of whether the phone is connected to a Wi-Fi, EDGE or 3G network, it must be connected to at least one of these three. If it is not, it will not be able to complete the steps required to download iBlacklist (see link in Resources).Look for the Cydia application on the iPhone and press the icon with your finger. This icon is often kept somewhere close to the first application page because it is needed to download jailbroken applications.

  • Wait a few moments until Cydia completely loads. After it loads, locate and click on the "Sections" link on the page. After this is clicked on, a new page will open. On the scrollable list on the new page, scroll down until reaching the selection that says "Utilities." Select it by pressing on it. On the next page, scroll down to the letter "i." There you will be able to find the iBlacklist package.

  • Select "iBlacklist" and install it. After it has installed, click on the new "iBlacklist" icon on your phone. When the application opens, click on "blacklist." Then enter the number(s) you want to block and press "Enter." You no longer will receive calls from the numbers you have blocked.

    Cydia continually 'loading data'. No response from Cydia icon.

    Wait until all data is loaded and your phone will restart or 'respring'. After that you can open it.

    Cydia won't load

    You need a program like iphonebrowser or ssh with winscp.

    Go to /private/var/lib/apt/lists
    and delete all the files in /root/private/var/lib/apt/lists/ except for the partial subfolder. Do not delete Partial folder. Reboot phone and restart cydia and it should work just fine.
