    Default That and blogs

    Post's and those bloggers who jump the gun thinking something is about to work. Or those people who state they found a hack then come to find out it's with a turboSIM that was discovered weeks ago. LAME...... Talk about a pain in the ass to find a reliable source.

    They give me something to read whilst waiting for the Dev Team to come up with a new method to Jailbreak 1.1.1.

    Totaly agree on this point, however, I think the devs have another vision on this. I once posted the same in a forum and got flamed.

    It was better during some day's (when the unlock was out) But now it's full crap, making it very hard to find information. Just searching for baseband flash will give you a few hundred results. Try to read that through before you have your answer.

    I have to say I had huge hopes of becoming an active member of this community, and participating in intelligent discussions about the iPhone.

    Unfortunately, this forum is very badly moderated, if at all. If the current mods do not have any time to moderate, then I suggest they assign new mods from the active community.

    Moderating a forum is a tough job - it's not fun and it takes a lot of time. Good admins turn lurkers ino active users and get rid of the signal to noise ratio. I hope someone wakes up now.

    Why don't you put your "money" where your "mouth" is and start to write a FAQ for iPhone beginners? I planned this several times but each time I'm starting, I get occupied with editing, deleting, moving, closing threads which sometimes takes up to 2-3 hours a day! I'm a REAL LIFE working person, I have a family too and sam and the othes are also very occupied. You can't run a forum with 20 moderators, especially because this is a job you need to trust someone, you can't just pick a random person and there you go.

    I agree, we've been way to patient and tolerant in the past and just today, sam told me how p.ss.d he is with what is happening in the forums, asking me to use the AXT to clean up everything. Sadly enough, I think I'm going to be more aggressive in my moderation and to save time, I close down/delete threads/posts in the future without giving any reason for it anymore. If people don't understand why this happened, well...bad luck I guess.

    I agree however, we need a short NEWBIE FAQ for the following:
    1. basic iPhone info (Apple OEM functions)
    2. what you can do with the iPhone if you want to go beyond Apple's OEM setup (installing third party apps, unlock) incl. possible problems occuring with certain FW revisions, baseband revisions
    3. what steps are necessery to prepare third party apps install and unlock
    4. tools and third party iPhone apps you need to do the job
    5. seperate instructions for Mac and Windows users (well, I'm a Windows user but since this site is called Hackint0sh, maybe Mac instructions should suffice, unless somebody really volunteers to set up a Windows FAQ too)
    6. possible common issues you can run into while applying activation, jailbreaking, third party apps install, unlocking, etc.
    7. downgrade instructions (FW 1.1.1 to 1.0.2)
    8. enhancing the iPhone experience with the "hacks", like setting up Voicemail, installing language packages, ringtones, wallpapers, etc.

    And so on. If somebody (or more people) are willing to put a FAQ together, I'll post it as a sticky thread for everybody. I can also promise that with day ONE of a FAQ being available, I'will delete EACH and EVERY thread IMMEDIATELY without any further comments if it relates to questions/issues explained in the FAQ. This may save us all a lot of time. I know there are already some good instructions available in the forum, it would "only" take people to put them together and add a few things here and there to make them easier to understand for Newbies.

    What a brilliant but simple idea.

    Not simple enough for dumb people I'm afraid. They would still post and start new threads in the other forums, asking the same stuff over and over again.

    Typical newbie mistakes:
    1. they come here through Google searches and/or through links and don'r realize that they're actually bookmarking a certain forum only out of a couple of others.
    2. they hardly make it through registration and the first thing they want to know concerns their problem, they don't care about the others (spoiled kid mentality)
    3. they really don't know how to use a forum software, they don't use the Advanced Search, they don't read the sticky posts or the status report
    4. some are just dumb ass lazy, they're just looking for the shortest and easiest way to find an answer to their problem

    Another forum wouldn't help at all, believe me. It would just add more work for us.
    We need a FAQ for Newbies and a "stick to the rules or your post gets deleted without further comments" zero tolerance policy. The last one will be applied soon, trust me.
