First things first, iPhone Unlock Users do not upgrade via iTunes to 3.1.2; this will kill the baseband and you will not be able to unlock.  You can use the dev teams pwnagetool.

Jailbreak: Download/Execute BlackRa1n, click the logo of your OS to download. May want to install Cydia via BlackRa1n app.

Unlock: Install Sn0w via blackra1n app.

Tether: Unlock device, go to on iphone and tap install.

If Issues with WiFi, GPS, or YouTube come up after unlocking with Blacksn0w. Go to Settings > General > Reset> and hit “Reset Network Settings”. Once that’s complete, do a hard power cycle by holding the sleep/home button for a few seconds and then sliding the on-screen power toggle.

iphone-ringtonesWant to have a large variety of ringtones? But can’t see paying more for a 30 second snippet of a song than the full song?  Did you know you can create your own ring tones in just minutes with Audacity?

  1. Open Up iTunes & Audacity.
  2. Find the song you wish to use in iTunes and right click and select “Show in…”
  3. This will show you where the actual file is, drag that into Audacity.
  4. Highlight about 30 seconds of the song you wish to use as a ring tone.
  5. Copy the selection by going to Edit > Copy
  6. Create a New File: File > New
  7. Paste your selection: Edit > Paste
  8. Optional: You may want to fade the ringtone in and/or out.  To do this highlight the first or last 5 seconds of the song and go to Tools > Fade in(or fade out).
  9. Export this song as a M4A.
  10. Go to where you saved this song and rename the files extension(.m4a) to a .m4r.
  11. Double click the file and it should play it in iTunes and store it in your ringtones section.

If you are presented with a “cannot find library” type error message when exporting:

  1. Either go to Audacity> Preferences(mac) or File > Preferences(win).
  2. Click on Libraries
  3. Download the FFmpeg library (click button)

AT&T has silently started to enable MMS on iPhones running version 3.1; if you wish to Jail Break and/or unlock do not upgrade until you have instructions for jail breaking 3.1.  You should not be upgrading via iTunes, use pwnage tool to upgrade as it will ensure your phone remains jailbreakable/unlockable.

If you upgrade to 3.1 and still are getting those annoying “” messages instead of MMS Perform the following:

First we need to Enable IPCC Updates in iTunes


  1. Close iTunes
  2. Open Terminal (Applications > Utilities > Terminal)
  3. Run the command: defaults write carrier-testing -bool TRUE

Windows 32 Bit

  1. Close iTunes
  2. Go to Start then Run and type CMD
  3. Run this command(If you right-click on the cmd window you can paste): “C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe” /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

Windows 64 Bit

  1. Close iTunes
  2. Go to Start then Run and type CMD
  3. Run this command(If you right-click on the cmd window you can paste): “C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes\iTunes.exe” /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

Ok, so now we can enable MMS

  1. Download the IPCC Package here.
  2. Ensure your iPhone is plugged in and open iTunes.
  3. On the iPhone tab hold alt and click update
  4. Navigate to the IPCC file you downloaded and install it.
  5. Reboot iPhone.  MMS Should now be enabled.

images-2Digital Photo’s have data hidden within them that has copious amounts of data about the photo, this data is called Exif data.  Most devices with GPS capabilities will throw the GPS location into the photo aswell.  This data can easily be pulled with any exif data viewer, however I will be using a “Command Line Utility” for this guide as it will work on any Operating System.  Feel free to google your own tool if this utility is too hard to use.

  1. Download Exiftool here
  2. Open up a terminal
  3. type: exiftool “path of photo here”
  4. Record the GPS Latitude and Longitude location

The iPhone throws data in “Degrees Minutes Seconds” format, for google maps to show you will need to convert it into “Decimal Degrees”.   You can always use online tools to convert it into DD, or you can do it by hand:

DMS Example: X deg Y’ Z” N

DMS -> DD: X + Y/60 + Z/3600.  (North & East = positive, South & West = negative)

Once you have the DMS Coordinates just input that into google maps and see where it was taken!  If it shows you in another country, remember, North & East = Positive, South & West = Negative!

purplera1nThis is the moment we all been waiting for, a fully functional 3.0 jailbreak for the 3GS.  Currently this is windows only, there isn’t much of this software it is from an individual and not the dev-team as they delayed their release of the jailbreak.

What you need

  • Latest Version of iTunes (8.2)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • PurpleRa1n(click windows logo to download)


  1. Ensure iPhone is connected
  2. Run PurpleRa1n, click “Make it ra1n”
    • It will send your iphone into recovery
    • Once it detects recovery it will display the image you see to the right
    • If it is here more than 2 minutes, something wrong happened.  Either copy and paste purplera1n.log (located same directory as purplera1n) to our forums or email it to[at]gmail[dot]com.
  3. Open the “Freeze” app
  4. Install Cydia
  5. Restart iPhone
  6. I highly recommend you to upgrade cydia once installed, just open it and go to changes and “upgrade all”
  7. Optional: Unlock the iPhone 3GS
