custom ringtones (not from itunes) and jailbreak among other questions
Hi I am a bit confused about a few things. Got my phone yesterday and just starting to get deeper into moding it.
I have unlocked it smoothly using iNdependence and unlock app from the modmyiphone.com website. Now I have the apptap which is cool, and i always try new stuff from it. Now what if I want to transfer ringtones to my iphone that I have created and ripped or whatever to my iphone. I read that you need to first jailbreak the phone and then go through the whole process of unlocking/restoring and this takes lots of time.
Maybe I am missing something but once the phone is unlocked and activated and the BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH is on it , isn't the phone free to do whatever i want with it already?
Also, i read these apps installed during the unlock process take more battery when they are installed on the phone even when not running/or are they running in the bg?
I need a bit clarity as I don't want to do anything stupid that would put my phone in danger to 1- not work unlocked anymore as I leave abroad right now
2- needing to do the restore from itunes again and bumping into 1.1.1 sometime soon accidentally
3- any stupid move that i read lots of people do by just trying to launch a million things without reading about the consequences and then being surprised "my phone is dead why is that"
So I want to read, learn and not do things like a little parrot because these are the steps and that's it.
So, thanx for anyone that can shed some light and explain some things to me so I can do things in a responsible and knowledgeable way.
Also i like apptap and don't want to remove it as I am sure many things will come to add to it in the near future.
Last thing is to say thank you to you all, developers, mistaking users, or just plain thanx to all the people trying to make this great piece of software an even more incredible one, open to all.
yes its free to do what you want with
ssh is always running unless you turn it off or uninstall it other app don't really use up much power , wifi and bluetooth use a bit
you can restore with 1.02 without effecting your unlock, for now turn auto updates off in itunes, and wait for a guide on how to update to 1.1.1 and unlock for a already unlocked phone. it could be a while before that is possible, (just enjoy the phone on 1.02 for now.)
not many moves really leave you iphone dead, most actually have problem phones as there seems to be a few different hardware errors floating around.
most general problems can be fixed with a restore.
have fun with your phone and look foward to things (hopefully) getting better
so how o i turn off SSH?
also, how do i install my custom ringtones.
Also why is the app tap telling me i only have 106MB left.
