The iPhone 4 is an awesome smartphone. It truly has started to replace my desktop and laptop computer for many day to day tasks. While Apple did a good job at making this phone very user friendly and functional, you can really make this tiny little pocket computer even better without much effort. Jailbreaking your iPhone will really unleash this device’s true power and will fix/help the few flaws and/or limitations that Apple, or your carrier, has placed on this device.
Since I recently updated my phone to the latest iOS version, 4.2.1, I figured I’d share with you the latest tool I used to jailbreak the phone and the few of my “must have” jailbroken apps. I won’t go into much detail about how to install the jailbreak or each individual app, there are plenty of resources available on the topic. I just wanted to share which apps I have come to love and depend on, which have made me love my iPhone even more.
Second, the apps…
Facetime over 3G! Take back your 3G! My3G makes Apps believe that they are on WiFi instead of 3G. With My3G, you can now watch HiDef YouTube videos, use Skype/Fring/Other VOIP apps over the 3G network!
Create an iPhone WiFi HotSpot or iPad WiFi HotSpot with a press of a finger! Wherever you are – you can connect your laptop or other mobile device to your iPhone/iPad easily to use your iPhone/iPad’s data connection.
Wi-Fi Sync enables wireless syncing with iTunes at the touch of a button. Never go looking for that USB cable again. Sync from the car, bed or shed whenever it suits you.
Gives you access to your information where you need it, when you need it. You can view your new emails, upcoming calendar events, unread SMSs, missed calls and much more on your lockscreen.
Takes all of the basic features of the built-in Messaging app, and adds many more great features.
Offers a faster method to manage iPhone settings like rebooting, turning on/off Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, etc.
