    What exactly is "jailbreaking" your iPhone? I hear about it a lot, but I have no idea what it is. So, what is it?

    Hi Keith, Jailbreaking is simply editing the iPhones software so you can run 3rd party applications. If you imagine you have bought a computer, the manufacturer have put some software on there that only lets you download programs from their own website. Obviously that would get REALLY annoying, so you would simply find a way to get past that block Thats Jailbreaking.

    The best things you can do with it, are Themes (Winterboard) Multitask (Backgrounder) and things like gameboy emulators etc.

    Very cool stuff.

    Which firmware version are you on? I have uploaded the files required to jailbreak 2.2. They are available here www.marctew.co.uk/Archive.zip

    Restoring to a new iPhone, yes. Please read the sticky threads that I pointed you to in your other thread. You can find answers to all of your questions much faster.

    Just a thought...if your 13 your on your parents plan, if they are the ones footing the bill for your phones and replacements...you might want to get their OK before you void the warranty on your very expensive phone.

    I just jailbroke my iphone 3g today. I was just wondering, if there is a new software update and quickpwn, would you have to just download the new software or the quickpwn first. Will this let the jailbroken apps to stay on there for when i download the other. Will it all have to be redownloaded either way or is there a way to prevent this. If so what is it

    You'll have to update to the new Apple iphone release via itunes, (2.23 or whatever it will be called once it is released), and then wait for the Dev Team to come out with a revised Quickpwn. Usually a few day's after the official Apple release. Re-jailbreak. Download and install your JB app's again. It's not too difficult.

    Void your warranty? How so? Just restore via itunes to get back to factory condition with no trace of JB.

    OP, why do you only have until Wednesday?

    The fact that you can, in most cases, restore the phone and leave few traces, does not change the fact that you are technically voiding your warranty. I can assure you, if my child were to jailbreak an iPhone I bought for them without my permission...they would be very sorry. My point wasn't the voiding of the warranty, it was consent from the people paying the bills
