    Question [Advice] Anyone else have old jailbroken apps working on a locked 2.0 FW phone?

    Interesting thing happened when i upgraded to my new 3g iphone.
    I had an unlocked and jailbroken 1st gen phone with a ton of apps on it, when i got my new phone i wanted to transfer my contacts music etc to my new phone. Plugged the 3g into itunes hit restore from my old one and to my surprise 2 installer apps survived.
    Contacts (as a standalone app on the springboard) and Make it Mine.

    Anyone else had a similar experience?

    here is a screen shot of the new 3G one.


    fell free to call me out if this has been discussed to death, i suck at searching

    Contacts is actually part of the new 2.0 firmware (and was actually always a hidden icon I believe) and the make it mine thing has been shown to survive updates, not entirely sure why but I read the reason why before somewhere on this forum.

    x98 is right.

    when u flash a firmware, it doesn't re-do what makeitmine changes, the app didn't even survive just the change it made to ur iphone files, which isn't something that changes when u sync/restore.

    and contacts has always been an app on ur phone, the icon was just always hidden, on 1.1.2 i just unhide the app with customize and bam, instant icon on springboard
    originally OTB 1.1.2 iPhone 4.6BL
    hActivated/Jailbroken/gUnlocked
    Tzones hacked
    T-Mobile USA

    now blackra1n'd 3.1.2
