Iphone unlocking…

Well as most of the techies out there know, there are several methods for unlocking the iphone, as well as several methods for customizing your phone, from adding ringtones to wallpaper to games. I performed my unlock using the old method of a manual unlock, now however there are much easier and (of course) free methods to tweak out your phone.

I have added scrolling wallpaper, 5 icons to my springboard, an additional 10 programs that are located on the “summerboard” which is basically adds scrolling to the backdrop, and of course custom ringtones.

The easiest method to unlock customize your phone (for Mac users, G4 and intel mac compatible) is Apptapp, it has a UI (user interface) and is very user friendly, it doesn’t get any easier than this. Don’t have a Mac? well the best solution is to go to your local Mac store and bring your own USB dongle, it only takes a few seconds, and all your have to do is add the Mission Impossible music, and your almost as covert as a spy.

Once the installer is well installed , youll need to download a few applications to take advantage of other applications, first off update the installer itself. This is done from the phone and it does not need to be plugged into a computer (unless your phone is low on batteries). Next install the Community Sources , which is basically more sources for your iphone to search for downloads. Then I recommend you download the BSD Subsystem, which will allow other cool applications to work. Perform any updates of the new applications, hit the “Home” button on the bottom of your iphone and your phone should reset itself, and you are now able to add cool new apps to your phone. Ill have screenshots of all the additions after the jump. 🙂
