i am trying to get teh mms to work on my friends 3gs i jailbroke it and unlocked it just like i did mine... i went into network to goto carrier settings and it wasent there.. when i try to download teh APN app in cydia it crashes.. any other way you can think to have the apn settings show.. i still have itunes 8.2.1
i'll be honest, i use textfree for all my texting as i only have the 200 text plan (figure why not save 15 bucks a month). have you tried reinstalling cydia?
So I can jailbreak mine with redsn0w 0.8 until the 3.1 jailbreak is out? I don't have to worry about the ECID bs?
My head is spinning from the 3g/3g[s] confusion surounding this issue.
if you have a 3g none of this ECID stuff means anything to you. if you are on 3.0.1 you can easily jailbreak with redsnow .8 and 3.0.0 firmware, or if you want you can now jailbreak the new 3.1 using Pwnage tool 3.1 (as long as you have a Mac, no Windows version yet). If you want to do the 3.1 jailbreak read up on it here (http://modmyi.com/forums/iphone-news...l-3-1-mac.html
)... this is only good for 2g and 3g, no 3gs 3.1 jailbreak yet.
if you jailbreak an iphone, does it no longer receive updates and are there any problems with syncing with your computer, etc? i'm not familiar with all of this stuff, so i'm just curious about what the upsides and downsides are to it.
you still receive updates to firmware(although you should never upgrade firmware until the dev team has "okay'ed" it, and when you upgrade firmware you will have to re-jailbreak)
your appstore and itunes stuff is untouched
sync'ing is exactly the same
upsides - unleashes the iphone to be a real mini-computer
downsides - apple is a bunch of dbags who keep trying new ways to prevent this.
