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 …

All you have to do is :
– Make sure your iPhone is activated. It is not possible without a valid iPhone SIM. If you don’t have one, we must wait until another tool is released.
– Make sure you sync your iPhone to iTunes. This is important, just in case you know!

Apple’s iPhone had little or no updates to the UI ever since its inception (2007 June). The homescreen is way too boring when compared to the ever so popular Android phones. To add some life to the existing iPhone homescreen, install a free application called ‘Element’. It is a Cydget widget. You no longer have to launch each individual app (weather, email, sms, calendar,.. updates). Following are the steps to install it on your iPod Touch / iphone.

Your iPhone should be jailbroken before proceeding.
Launch Cydia and search for ‘Element’ and …

Apple’s heightened security with the latest bootrom in ipt2,3 and 3GS iPhones forced many to resort to tethered jailbreak which can be a pain when your iPhone decides to reboot on the go. A blackra1n like app should soon see the light of day for total freedom to all Apple mobile gadgets! Till then, check geohot’s post.
