How to Jailbreak your iPhone 4 Online, Cool Free Cydia Apps List [Guide]

2 August 2010 58 Comments

iPhone 4, despite its signal woes is a beast when it comes to processing power and pure, raw speed (a lil’ better than 3GS). Jailbreaking iPhone 4 will give you access to themes, productive tools, unlock and more. I tested this approach with a 3GS, 3G and iPhone 4. It is a multi-iPhone jailbreak and requires no computer access! It is the same as described here but I wanted to document Cydia apps for iPhone 4.

Initially, I was unsure if Cydia is even needed for iPhone 4 with multitasking, wallpaper features enabled. We sure do need jailbreak to overcome outrageous Apple limitations! Without further ado, lets go :

Jailbreak part :

  • Make sure your iPhone is activated. It is not possible without a valid iPhone SIM. If you don’t have one, please wait until another tool is released.
  • Make sure you sync your iPhone to iTunes. This is important, just in case you know!
  • If your iPhone is activated, you are 60 seconds away from a jailbreak. Connect to WiFi and launch Safari on your iPhone.
  • Type in ‘jailbreakme.com’ in Safari and swipe the ‘slide to jailbreak’ button.
  • Give it few seconds to do its thing! iPhone 4 will be jailbroken within no time! You will see Cydia icon on your homescreen when done.

Cydia part :

  • Launch Cydia and choose ‘user’ when prompted to choose user type.
  • Now, time for some cool apps on Cydia. Click on ‘Search’ and install the following apps. I am testing all the important apps. Some are crashing the iPhone! Please don’t download any and every Cydia app, some might harm/damage your iPhone. Following work great. Will update the list and add more info/description screenshots once I have a sizable list.
  • Please post a comment if you feel a Cydia app or a theme shoulg be included in this list.



Apply nice themes on your iPhone. Just the wallpaper support in iOS 4 doesn’t cut it!


Connect to your iPhone using WiFi and transfer files or perform other operations (emergency). Trust me, you will need it!


Save your bandwidth! Download those videos that you watch often on YouTube. You can download multiple videos at great quality or just stream.


You will need this in some situations. If you don’t know what this is, then please install it and forget that you even have it.

    When you jailbreak an iphone, it adds the cydia icon. Cydia is a repository like the App store. It lets you install Apps and modification tools that Apple does not want you to have like themes to change the looks of your phone among other things.

  • kkiran said:

    Antenna issue is hardware related. Jailbreak adds some awesome features. I provided a list of essential(ish) Cydia apps that adds a lot of value to an otherwise boring iPhone!

    Frank is spot-on with his answer!

    MxTube has a problem with iOS 4. The developer released it in the appstore but Apple took it down I guess. Will keep you posted on the status. What apps were you trying to restore – appstore apps or cydia apps?

I do not like the fact that even though my phone is locked with password, when receving a txt is shows that person(s) name on home screen. is there a way to keep that from happening or ive heard there is a way to put some sorta fake home screen that can maybe hide that. If anyone have any suggestions, pls let me know. thank yo in advance.

  • rywi said:

  • massive knob said:

    unfortunatly you've got the same problem as me, the solution? um…none that i know of. you just need to wait for this particular jailbreaker to update itself or try another!

  • kevin said:

    there is a way. you updated to the 4.2.1 update from apple which has made it alomost impossible to to jailbreak for some time although there methods availble using more than one jailbreak tools from different hackers. you will need the latest itunes downloaded. latest redsnow release and latest snowbreeze jailbreak tools which you can download via google. you will then have to restore you iphone through itunes to the latest 4.2.1 update so itunes downloads the .ipsw file from iphone. then you must use snowbreeze to build a custom .ipsw file. then jailbreak iphone using redsnow. then enter into restore mode and restor to custom .ipsw file then download ultrasnow through cydia and you will have an unlocked iphone using any sim and untehtered jailbroken for 4.2.1

  • Kiran said:

    Unfortunately, the only option you have right now is "tethered jailbreak" @ 4.3.5 for which you have to use redsn0w on your PC.

  • Jess said:

    I have iPhone 4.3.3 will this work? If not what should I do to get Cydia?

  • Haleigh said:

    just go to jailbreakme.com and click free its the download for cydia

    yes its very simple to do so, just go to settings then go to notifications then you will see the icon message tap on that then it will show 3 figures of iphones on the bottom of each figure it will say none , banners , and alerts, click on the one that says none !! then your messages wont show anymore it only will show that you got one message or whatever amount of meaasges your receiving .

    i was having the same problem with my iphone now its fixed!!

    im sure it will work for you.
    if some reason it does not then go to any ATT&T store and ask for help. they were the ones to show me how to do so.

    good luck ..
