Getting MMS to work on iPhone 3G 3.0 OS beta 2


1) This is experimental. The instructions might not work or might cause your phone to stop functioning completely.

2) at&t does not support this officially yet. There have been some reports of problems associated with enabling MMS on at&t.

3) The information is provided here for educational and informational purposes only. It should not be used on any phone.

This requires an iPhone 3G loaded with the iPhone OS 3.0 and 3.0 SDK installed onto a Mac with Leopard 10.5.

Step 1) Prepare the ATT_US.ipcc

Follow steps 1 - 7 from the instructions here.

1) Under Root in carrier.plist add:

AllowEDGEEditing Boolean Checked
AllowMMSCEditing Boolean Checked
AllowMMSEditing Boolean Checked

2) Add the following:

In the wap dictionary (mine is wap.cingular, sts's was, add a new pair. Do not edit the password or username:
type-mask = (NUMBER) -2
3) Under root in carrier.plist also add:

mms_proxy String
mms_proxy_port String 80
mmsc String

Now follow Steps 9 - 12 in the instructions to finish preparing the ATT_US.ipcc.

Cydelete, no more having to go into Cydia to delete Icons/Apps

The one thing that makes App Store Apps more convenient than cydia apps is how you delete them. With Applications from the App store you just have to press and hold on and icon until they start shake and press the "x", easy. For cydia applications you have to open up cydia, wait like 5 minutes just for the sources to refresh and then uninstall. Well, that's all going to change now!

Introducing the new application called "cydelete" from Cydia allows you to delete apps the same way you would delte App Store apps. How convenient is that?? Try it for yourself open up cydia and search it!

Enjoy! Please leave a comment

New! For Active Theme Makers(this is for you) Have a different image on each page of Springboard!

Yesterday, 03/16/09, Winterboard had an update. (If you haven't been on cydia go on it and update!) The changes in the update are listed above^^
  • Made Wallpapers Work Again
  • Prioritize Apple's ImageCache
  • Per-page Wallpaper Page#.png
So how do you create a basic theme with different images for each page??
  1. Just create a folder (name it whatever you'd like)
  2. Drag in some pictures into that folder.(Same number of pictures as you have pages on your iPod/iPhone)
  3. Make sure you can see the file extensions of the images.
    • To view file extensions on Windows XP go to any folder on your computer and look on top it should says Tools-->Folder Options-->View-->Uncheck Hide Well Known Extensions
    • To view file extensions on Vista/Windows 7 go to control panel and in the search type in "folder" and it should say folder options somewhere then go to View-->Uncheck Hide well Known File Extensions
  4. All the pictures you have in the folder you created earlier need to be named like so:

    Each name corresponds with which page number you want it on. Page0.png(page 1) Page1.png(page 2) Page#.png(etc..) MAKE SURE TO CHANGE THE ENDINGS TO .png

  5. Once you have renamed all your images correctly you need to SSH them into your Themes folder on your iPod/iPhone.
    • Don't know how to SSH themes from your computer to your iPod/iPhone??
HERE IS A PREVIEW OF HOW IT WILL LOOK(I did this real quick, it's kind of sloppy)

Hope that was informative enough. Have any questions?

Untethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 2nd Gen!

Option 1
Quickfreedom(Kind of like Quickpwn)

Option 2

No more coding when you accidently turn off your iPod! Untethered is out

BEFORE you begin, restore your iPod Touch clean to it's factory state.
As with every other tutorial you need the C++ redistributable and LIBusb
(if you've jailbroken before you should already have them)

Download Libusb here
Download Microsoft C++ here

1.First download Unofficial Redsnow 2.0 for windows and extract the folder to your desktop

2. Get the 2.2.1 Firmware Here

3. Rename the 2.2.1 ipsw to OriginalFW.ipsw and place it in /IPSW

4. Run IPSW.bat (It will take a while)

5. Replace the llb.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 in your new JB.ipsw with the one located under /IPSW preferably using 7zip to avoid corruption.
(you can also use winrar, by either changing the file extension to .rar or open it up as a .rar file some other way and deleting the lib.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 and replacing it with the new one)

6. Place your iPod Touch 2G into DFU mode and run RUNME.exe

7. Shift + Restore to JB.ipsw in iTunes and your done!!!

automatically if it is 2.2.1 and a green checkmark
will appear next to your device name.

Step 5: Press the blue arrow to go to the next
page. ** Decide what you would like to have.
Obviously you should add cydia. Installer is
optional and so is boot logos.

Step 6: Press the blue arrow to go the next page

Download the file from there(you need to register and do a bunch of other junk) and then after you download the file you basically just follow the steps I showed you earlier, but they have clear instructions on the site on how to go about installing the new Windows 7.

any questions?

How to SSH ROMs and Themes! (Also, SSH without WiFi)

First, you have to make sure you have "openssh" installed in cydia.

Second, go to (i'll have it in the video description) and install the program.

In the "Host name" field you must enter your IP address from your ipod/iphone.
You have to be connected to WiFi and you click the blue arrow next to your connection.
The username is : root
The password is: alpine

Once you have that stuff entered in. Press login.

I will first show you how to get ROMs onto your ipod/iphone.
A good website to get ROMs is Emuparadise
If you click on your for example "NES" application you will see a message saying upload ROMs to
To do this you must navigate to that folder. You can do this through winscp. As you can see we are currently on the /private/var/root folder.

When you create the folder it must be exactly "ROMs".
Inside of the ROMs folder we must create another folder called "NES"
Now as you can see both paths match up we are now on /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/NES
We can now drag and drop NES ROMs into this folder. I have downloaded "megaman 6" just for this video.
Now, on your iPod/iPhone just reopen the NES application and there you go! You now have a playable NES rom.
---------------------------------------- ---------------------
Also, using WinSCP i'll show you how to add Themes to Winterboard from your computer

1.) Download a theme from any site
2.) UNZIP THE FILE and put the folder on your desktop(or some place you know of)
3.)Drag the folder into private/var/stash/themes

You need to get to /private/var/stash
this is how.
You will see a Themes folder. click on that.
This folder contains all your Winterboard themes.
Now you can drag all your themes you downloaded into this folder
If you click on WinterBoard now, it should be in there!

That's all for this WinSCP tutorial. If you have any questions please do ask.

To get GBA/NES ROMs on your ipod touch/iphone add the source
(Once the source refreshes download "Gba Bios file" and any other ROMs you would like)

P.S. For those of you who do not have WiFi you can also SSH like this

Tether Jailbreak iPod Touch 2nd Generation(Windows Step by Step)

What you'll need:
redsn0w lite

iRecovery and libusb
2.1.1 IPSW
2.2.1 IPSW
What you may need:
If for some reason your iPod will refuse to get a white screen when it is supposed to
download this to end iPod Services and Mobile Services(should make it work)
End Services batch file

-Submitted by Username: jake fox
Thank you.


1.) Extract redsn0w lite and XPwn to your Desktop

2.) Save (or move) the 2.2.1 IPSW into the XPwn folder and rename it OriginalFW.ipsw

3.) In the rslite101 folder, there should be a FirmwareBundles folder; copy the iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11.bundle into your XPwn\FirmwareBundles\ folder.

4.) Open up a Command Prompt (type cmd in the Search bar if on Vista).

5.) In Command Prompt, cd to the Xpwn directory and do "ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar"
Some people are having trouble with the cd command. Just type cd, then a space, and then drag the little folder icon of where you want to cd(so in our case drag the Xpwn folder into the command line) in this into the command prompt and press enter.
Should look something like this after you drag the folder in.

IF YOU GET AN ERROR HERE SAYING "COULD NOT FIND IPSW" take out the .ipsw after OriginalFW in the xpwn folder

After you have your command prompt looking like that type in "ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar"

Should say hashing ipsw

6.) Put your iPod Touch in DFU mode

Step 1. Turn off your iPod.

Step 2. Press and hold home button for 5 seconds then continue holding home button and press power button for 10 seconds

Step 3. release the power button but continue holding the home button down.

Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode..


7.)Extract all files in the iRecovery RAR to your Desktop and open the iRecovery folder, there should be an installer for libusb located here.
If you haven't already installed libusb, please do so now.
If you're running Vista or 7, please right click the .exe and select Properties, then click the Compatibility tab, then select Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the drop-down menu.
After install, a restart may be required.

8.)Open another Command Prompt (or use the one you used before, if it is still up) and type the following:
cd C:\Users\yourusername\Desktop\iRecovery\iRecovery_SVN
or you could type cd, space, and drag the iRecovery_SVN folder into the command prompt


9.) Extract your 2.1.1 iBSS and 2.2.1 iBSS and iBoot.
To do so, right click your 2.1.1 IPSW and select Open with> WinRAR archiver.
Navigate to the Firmware\dfu directory, then drag iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu into your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename it iBSS211.dfu.
Now, open up your PatchedFW.IPSW from the xpwn folder using WinRAR.
First, navigate to the Firmware\dfu folder and drag iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu into your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename is iBSS221.dfu.
Now, navigate to the Firmware\all_flash\all_flash.n72ap.production folder.
Extract iBoot.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 to your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename it iBoot221.img3.

10.)Bring up your Command Prompt again and execute the following:

iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu
Your iPod's screen should turn white.
If it doesn't, unplug your iPod and wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in.

11.)11.) In the same Command Prompt, enter the following:
iRecovery -s
mw 0x9000000 0xe59f3014
mw 0x9000004 0xe3a02a02
mw 0x9000008 0xe1c320b0
mw 0x900000c 0xe3e02000
mw 0x9000010 0xe2833c9d
mw 0x9000014 0xe58326c0
mw 0x9000018 0xeafffffe
mw 0x900001c 0x2200f300
Just to clarify, you will hit enter after each of these commands.

12.) Restore to your PatchedFW.ipsw firmware using iTunes (Hold shift and press restore and click the patchedfw.ipsw that is in the Xpwn folder)

13.) After your restore is complete, put you iPod into DFU mode, you'll have to apply the patch again to boot.
You will also have to do these same things each time you boot from now on:

iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu
iRecovery -s
mw 0x9000000 0xe59f3014
mw 0x9000004 0xe3a02a02
mw 0x9000008 0xe1c320b0
mw 0x900000c 0xe3e02000
mw 0x9000010 0xe2833c9d
mw 0x9000014 0xe58326c0
mw 0x9000018 0xeafffffe
mw 0x900001c 0x2200f300
iRecovery -f iBSS221.dfu
iRecovery -s
iRecovery -f iBoot221.img3
iRecovery -s
If you iPod is not recognized after sending the 2.1.1 iBSS, unplug it and plug it back in, then try iRecovery -s.
You may need to unplug your iPod after sending each iBSS, also.

(SORRY I DON'T HAVE PICTURES FOR THIS STUFF. I DON'T HAVE AN iPOD TOUCH 2nd Generation So i showed you as much as I could without it)

14.) Your iPod should now be booting; enjoy you tethered jailbreak.

I'd like to give credit to jfb392 from iPod Touch Fans and AriX from the same site.
