For those of you who have recently found yourself to be a proud owner of a beautiful and sleek iPhone or iTouch, this post is for you. I found a article from one of my favorite sites “Lifehacker.com“. If you have just recently purchased or received a iPhone or iTouch, this install will be a little different than those of you who have a older version of both products.

Install 3rd Party Apps on iPhone and iTouch

3rd party apps are a beautiful thing. But Apple has and will do everything in their power to stop you from making your iPhone into “your” iPhone. This is definitely understandable since after all it is their product. But since most of the world is not patient enough to wait for Apple to come around. Here are some ways around the wall of upgrades that will lock your iPhone into application purgatory.

NOTE: As we all know the world isn’t perfect and neither am I. So do not think that this is fool proof plan. Learn and read as much as possible before you continue with this process of hacking your iTouch and iPhone. I know all to well how fustrating these things can be so bare with me. Here are some tips you might find useful that I found in a Lifehacker.com comment thread.

  • 1. Make sure you have the latest JAVA installed otherwise it won’t work
    2. In Windows, make sure you close iTunes AND all iTunes related processes (e.g., iTunesHelper, etc.) from the Task Manager
    3. Move your jailbreak folder to the root folder in Windows (e.g., C:\) and the desktop on the Mac (you may also have to rename your hard drive on the Mac temporarily to MacintoshHD)
    4. It may not work the first time you try. If not, restore and start over.
    5. Nothing bad is going to happen if you just remember you can always force restore and get back to the original firmware.If you still have problems with the jailbreak, visit iLounge or iPod Touch Fans Forum – there are plenty of people there who can help you work out any problems…

1st Thing to Do!

The first thing your going to want to do is find out what firmware your iPhone is running. This can be done by docking your iPhone and clicking on the summary tab to see what version that you are running.Firmware Vesion

You want to have the 1.1.1. Firmware because the software that you are going to need to use has a one click upgrade that makes it extremely easy to downgrade to the right version of firmware for your iPhone. After you have performed this tweak. If you have the 1.1.1 version go to http://Jailbreakme.com and click install AppSnapp.

If this sounds to risky take a look at this article from Lifehacker.com. (more…)
