What is iPhone Jailbreak?In short, Jailbreak is the process of hacking an iPhone to free it from Apple restrictions. Because the iPhone is far from flawless as Apple created it, thousands of iPhone users have flocked to Jailbreak in search of iPhone changes and improvements. iPhone has been held back by limited customizability, text message privacy issues, and a lack of multitasking capabilities. But Jailbreak can solve all of these problems with apps and fixes available in Cydia and Installer. Cydia and Installer are the unofficial "App Stores" of the Jailbreak world. Developers create apps and tweaks and different utilities and upload them to these package managers, which organize everything into categories. The differences between Cydia and the App Store are the lack of an app approval process, and the lack of access limits on the iPhone software - i.e. you can do things Apple did not design the iPhone software to do. Why Jailbreak iPhone?
No restrictions. Want a custom wallpaper on your home screen? Custom icons for your apps? Internet tethering? A category system for organizing your apps? The ability to hide native iPhone apps you don't use? You can do all of this and more with Jailbreak, as iSmashPhone describes in ten reasons to Jailbreak your iPhone. As one of my readers recently noted, Jailbreak can make all your iPhone wishes come true.
To join the subculture. Sick of Apple's stranglehold on the iPhone? Those who Jailbreak iPhone belong to a movement of people who demand more from their iPhones. And they're not gonna let Apple stop them. Beat the system: Jailbreak your iPhone.
Unlock iPhone. To unlock your iPhone and use it on any carrier, you must first Jailbreak your iPhone. Some of the Jailbreak solutions below also allow you to unlock the iPhone, though unlocking is generally beyond the scope of this tutorial.
Why NOT Jailbreak iPhone?
The folks at Apple know what they are doing. They have not enabled multasking - the ability for apps to run in the background, simultaneously - most likely because it is a huge battery drain. By controlling the user experience, Apple ensures that your iPhone "just works," and you don't have to worry about managing battery life or any other technical details.
Jailbreak could (maybe?) brick your iPhone. "When someone develops something for an Apple product and that development isnâ€™t sanctioned by Apple, you run the risk of it not working as it should, conflicting with the device itself, or just all-around bricking that iPhone," warns Chris Pirillo, who prefers not to Jailbreak his iPhone because "my iPhone just works already." But I have never heard of Jailbreak completely ruining an iPhone. The consensus at this forum seems to be that the chance is "extremely slim."
Every iPhone update from iTunes disables Jailbreak. Every time Apple comes out with an update for iPhone, they find a way to prevent hackers from cracking the code again. Hackers then scramble to Jailbreak the iPhone again and release the new methods. That means if you like to download Apple's iPhone updates, you are going to have to figure out each time how to Jailbreak your iPhone yes again. Do you really want to play this cat and mouse game?
Jailbreak might increase your risk of getting a virus on your iPhone. The only two iPhone viruses ever reported have spread across iPhones that have been Jailbroken. That's not to say the iPhone platform as Apple built it is totally secure. In fact, some say compromising an iPhone's security is "child's play" (i.e. easy).
Jailbreak voids your iPhone warranty. If your iPhone is bricked because of Jailbreak, or if your iPhone has another problem and it happens to be Jailbreaked, your warranty becomes void. I once saw a sign at the Genius bar of The Falls, Miami Apple Store that warned customers not to Jailbreak iPhones or they would void their warranties. Harsh.
This will guide you on activating, jailbreaking and unlocking your iDevice & thus will be of 2 parts: Part 1 - Jailbreak with redsn0w; & Part 2 Unlocking with ultrasn0w.
UNTETHERED JAILBREAK - iOS 4.2.1, 4.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.1 and 4.0
iPhone 3GS old bootrom
iPod touch 2G non-MC model
TETHERED JAILBREAK (?) - iOS 4.2.1 ONLY - you can use either greenpois0n or sn0wbreeze for untethered jailbreak, for these iDevices:
iPhone 3GS new bootrom
iPod touch 2G MC model
iPod touch 3G
iPod touch 4G
UNLOCK - iOS 3.0 up to 4.2.1
iPhone 3GS old bootrom
UNLOCK- iOS 3.0 up to4.0.2 ONLY
iPhone 3GS new bootrom
Not sure if your iPhone 3GS has old or new bootrom? CLICK HERE. Or if your iPod touch is MC or non-MC? CLICK HERE.
Compatible basebands (BB) for ultrasn0w 1.2.2:
06.15.00 - iOS 3.2.2 from iPad (read further for details)
05.13.04 / 01.59.00 - iOS 4.0.2, 4.0.1 & 4.0
05.12.01 - iOS 3.1.3
05.11.07 - iOS 3.1 & 3.1.2
04.26.08 - iOS 3.0
Notice that BB 05.14.02 & 05.15.04 are NOT part of the list. You need to update these BB to 06.15.00 for ultrasn0w unlock to work. Read further for more info.
However, if your BB is 05.13.04 or lower, you can proceed with jailbreaking but make sure you DO NOT INSTALL THE IPAD BASEBAND.
WARNING: Read the following consequences of updating BB to 06.15.00:
There is no way to come back down from 06.15, & there's no hiding the baseband version from Apple. You'll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way.
If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won't be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn't update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway).
Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won't ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail). You'll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you're unlocker you should already be doing that).
NOTE: Download iPad's 3.2.2 IPSW ONLY if you'll use PwnageTool. Also, download ONLY the IPSW for your current iOS version. CLICK HERE if you have no idea what version is installed on your iDevice, especially if it's currently disabled.
For jailbreaking other iOS versions like 4.3.2, use other versions of redsn0w. CLICK HERE to see the list of all redsn0w versions.
PART 1 - JAILBREAKING with redsn0w (all iDevices):
Connect your iDevice to the computer, run redsn0w & click Browse
Locate IPSW for your current iOS, select it & click Open
Wait until it say IPSW successfully identified. Click Next
If you plan to unlock your iPhone 3G / 3GS old bootrom, you need to check Install iPad baseband to update BB to 06.15.00 Click Yes if you're OK with these consequences:Again, you only need this option if your BB is either 05.14.02 or 05.15.04. This will result to updating your BB to 06.15.00 which can be unlocked using ultrasn0w. Also, if your BB is 05.13.04 or lower, this jailbreak will still work for your iPhone but make sure you DO NOT INSTALL THE IPAD BB! You don't need it! For iPod touch users, the BB thing does not apply for you. so you have nothing to worry about.
Choose some more options before you click Next
Turn OFF your iDevice & prepare to put it to DFU mode then click Next
DFU mode: Press & hold the POWER button for 3 seconds
DFU mode: Press & hold HOME button while still holding on the POWER button for 10sec
DFU mode: Release the POWER button but keep holding on the HOME button for another 15 seconds or until you see Jailbreaking... on redsn0w
Wait until it tells you that The rest of the process takes place on your iDevice. Click Finish That will take around 8 to 9 minutes to complete
Once the jailbreak is done, open your iDevice & you'll find Cydia on the 2nd page of your homescreen. Watch this video: PART 2 - UNLOCKING with ultrasn0w (iPhone ONLY):
Open CydiaDon't worry if Cydia's icon is blank/all-white, it will still work.The first time you open Cydia, this is what you'll see (image below), then it will close itself and take you back to the homescreen
Open Cydia again. Before you proceed with the unlock, go to Changes first and do a Complete Upgrade
Tap Reboot Device after the upgrade
After reboot, you can then unlock. Open Cydia again (for the third time), and tap the following (in sequence):
Tap Install, then tap Confirm
And finally, tap Reboot Device
And you're all done! Your iPhone should catch signal after the reboot.

Step 1: Update iTunes to the latest version
available and reboot your computer. Step 2: Download BlackRa1n from our iPhone
downloads page and install it, then reboot your PC (note that
rebooting is not necessary but I always do this as a precaution). Step 3: Plug your iPhone to your computer and launch
BlackRa1n. Click on “make it ra1n”. Step 4: Your iPhone will now enter recovery mode.
The regular recovery mode image on your iPhone will be replaced by a
picture of GeoHot. Step 5: BlackRa1n will run on your iPhone and then
it will reboot.
A pop up will show up asking you to donate. If you successfully
jailbreak your iPhone, I suggest you send $5 or $10 to GeoHot. Step 6: Once your iPhone reboots, you will notice a
new icon on your springboard. This is BlackRa1n. Now make sure you have internet connection and
launch BlackRa1n on your iPhone. Step 7: Choose what installer applications you want
to install on your iPhone and then tap “Install”. I suggest only
installing Cydia but you may install them all if you want to.
BlackRa1n will download and install the selected applications. Step 8: Once done installing, your iPhone will
respring and you should see your installer app on your springboard. Step 9: Once your installer app (Cydia in our case)
is installed. You can safely uninstall BlackRa1n by launching the app
and selecting “uninstall balckra1n”. Step 10: Reboot your iPhone. You’re done!
if it still gives you problems then you have a hardware issue, apple won't touch a jailbroken iphone so hopfully you have the apple care protection. Restore it to factory settings and try to take it in for service.
its not a hardware problem brothe as i am also facing same problem...actually it all happen with jailbreaked iphone...ad i'hv checked its deep root directory there an application called "lockdown" is the main cause of that...nd still there is no crack of that..... two days back i unlocked my iphone 2g it was working properly before that i was facing the same issue as you are facing....but now again it went to the same problem.... i hav a temp solution of that... use blackra1n u can find it from blackra1n.com nd for few seconds slide to unlock will work or u can use it by connecting it with ur itunes ...connect usb wire nd slide it again nd again...u can unlock it..bue its just temp
I have an iphone that does this at times too! I have to reboot it periodicly, seems more often when I use it a lot. I have found several issues with winterboard and plugins for it to cause some of my problems. might try changing your screen to normal and see if it still acts this way.
I think that is your problem. You have installed some app which is causing problems. Do a recovery using iTunes it should be ok again. After that you might need to jail break it again but then make sure you use good tools to do it.
