Jailbreaking iPhone 3G with 2.0 firmware. Not!


_Be careful, I did this on my iPhone 3G and everything seemed to work, but the phone network doesn't, so I'm restoring my iPhone now to vanilla 2.0. Too bad, I like Mac Pacman!_

"iClarified":http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1558 has a tutorial for jailbreaking your iPhone 3G so that you can load all kinds of cool games. As if the appstore with its 900 applications isn't enough 🙂 As an aside, there is a tiff with "Zibri":http://pumpkinpat.ch/zibri_rant.html about different methods of hacking iPhones. Good reading.
