  1. Thank you so much. I have tried to jailbreak my iPhone 3g from many other sites will failure. This worked! Thanks again.

  2. Hi
    Jailbreak worked, but how do I get my old contact & data back on the jailbroken iphone? An the ifunbox download does not work on os10.5.8…you have any suggestions?
    Thanx so far

    • Hi pedi
      Try using itools instead of the ifunbox. And the contacts I would suggest try copying from sim to phone.
      or email them or text them to yourself.

      • Hi Matt
        thanks for this suggestion, but unfortunately I could´t find any proper itools download. They all did not work. What a pitty, I was hoping, after jailbreaking to use viber on my old phone… your instruction are really really good !!

  3. Hi Matt,

    Thanks for this. I’m new to doing all of this. I was able to download the Cydia app to my phone, but how do I now get the apps I want on my iphone 3G? I would like Instagram, Twitter, etc. If I go through the normal App Store on my phone I’m still getting an error message from Instagram. I’m not sure how to navigate through Cydia. Any advice would be really helpful. Thanks!


  4. Hi Matt,

    You can ignore my earlier comment. I downloaded the Instagram file from your site and when I double click, it opens in iTunes and then when I try to sync it with my phone, I’m getting an error message. Any ideas? Also the link for the Twitter download didn’t work for me either.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
