    Hey guys, haven't been on here in awhile and i know a lot of you are pretty good with electronics. I have the Verizon iPhone 4 and want to jailbreak it... but i want to have no problems after it is done. What is the best program to use and can I do it with absolutely NO problems with calling/messaging/phone performance? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I think you'll find most of the regular posters here don't and/or won't own an iphone. Most if not all of the regulars in the computer forum are Android users.

    I use an iPhone. Go to www.sinfuliphonerepo.net or .com for all of the up to date news. Most people are going to wait for iOS5 to come out before continuing exploits, so you might have to sit it out for a bit if your phone version is too high

    fixed that for you.

    i have an ATT iphone i had it jailbroken once. but honestly i don't have a need for tons of free apps when i only use about a dozen at most. i could understand if you did it for the uber slow tethering but most of the best apps, are free anyways.

    yes we know you use an iPhone
    we are all well aware that you use an iPhone
    because damn near every fucking post contains the auto sig "Sent from my iPhone using awesomeness"

    turn that annoying shit off

    lmao E. i have an iphone, and i post from my iphone without that non sense.

    i used to have my phone jailbroken, and i had some neat things, but half of the shit didnt work right, and sometimes apps needed other apps, but didnt auto download everything needed so shit would crash half the time. i ended up updating the phone in itunes to get rid of the jailbreak and the phone is much more stable. YMMV

    im waiting/hoping the next iphone is LTE so i can switch. no point in changing from 3GS to 4 if the speeds arent any better.

    Nope, I just prefer the iPhone to other similarly priced phones. Functions fine and I've had mine jailbroken since we could, no problems once you do it right.

    My lockscreen/homescreen setup, you can even see the available free memory and temp right on the status bar

    I havent taken the time to read all the posts but i have a jailroken iphone4. For the most part i love the new features and extensions ive added on, and they makr the phone even more user friendly. Just be careful what you do choose to install because it can cause your phone to act buggy now and again, mine occasionally crashes the springboard and goes into safemode but i just hit the "restart" sprigboard option and its back to normal in like 5 seconds.

    I used greenpois0n and it took like 20min overall.

    I have a verizon iPhone 4 but it is a work phone so isn't jail broken.

    I only chose the iPhone because it was that or another black berry. I needed a change after 6 years of black berry. lol
