Jailbreaking questions from an absolute newb
Hey everyone, I have a few jailbreaking questions about the PwnageTool (or in general I guess) that I'm hoping some of you veterans can answer. First off, I've been reading tutorials on the Pwnage tool and many of them seem to focus on unlocking rather than jailbreaking. I have signed my life away to AT&T so I'm really not interested in switching carriers. All I want to do is be able to put 3rd party apps on my iphone.
After a little research it seems that Pwnage makes it safe enough for me to actually consider jailbreaking - I saw some problems with iPlus/Liberty and I'm sure I don't even need to mention ziPhone. With the June SDK date pushed back I'm ready to jailbreak and finally get some decent apps on my phone, but I have a few newb questions first:
1) I have read the tutorial on iClarified about the Pwnage tool, he seems to only cover unlocking and jailbreaking... is there a better tutorial just for jailbreaking - or can someone explain to me what I'd do differently when not unlocking (compared to the iClarified tutorial)?
2) On iClarified he points you to download the .ipsw file directly from Apple, after Pwning he shows his screenshot which has Installer.app on his main screen. I remember people posting that using Pwnage would not put Installer.app on your phone unless you made a custom .ipsw file... is that the case or am I missing something? If it is the case, how do you get Installer.app on your phone after using pwnage?
3) I am a software developer, I have spent some time learning the ins and outs of Objective C (not too much of a stretch for a C/C++ developer). If I were to create an App with the SDK would I be able to load it on my 1.1.4 phone or would I have to Pwnage my version to 1.2?
4) Since I'm only interested in jailbreaking, would another tool such as iPlus/Liberty+ be a better, less complicated route for me (and just as safe and easily "restorable" as Pwnage)?
Sorry about the newb questions, I'd appreciate any help!! Thanks!
The only difference for Jailbreaking only is in step twelve of iclarified tutorial dont tick any boxes(unless u want the dev team images )
If u follow iclarified's tutorial installer will be installed.
sorry icant help with ur other 2 questions.
If you have a valid iPhone contract, don't check activate or unlock. Otherwise you're good...
