at the very least you can pick up a new one for rather cheap if you have a department store in your area. the walmarts here sell them for like, $15-20 USD. :\


last week we attempted to jailbreak GTouch (iphone 4); ran into a list of problems:

1. current version of pangu will not accept a phone that old, Claire had to download an older version, which...
2. did not accept Claire's computer as "good" (it literally said in shitty fake broken Chinese "Your Computer Bad, Use Friend Computer"), which led to
3. Claire having to use MY computer (i don't mind, but still complicated), though this was further complicated by
4. making a backup of the phone (the smart thing to do) since the phone is 32gb, and ultimately
5. even after it finished (which took several hours), the jailbreaking wasn't working, so we had to reschedule for next week.

all this after having to re-import my entire itunes library after i was almost done with it a first time.

this twin idea is getting harder and harder by the day.... *w*;;;;;

I went the third-party route... needless to say I was sorely-disappointed.

Some jailbreak programs are only compatible with specific firmwares, so no surprises there.

it's actually an iOS issue; the 4 can only be upgraded to iOS 7.1.2, which isn't supported anymore by the latest edition of Pangu. everyone's expected you to switch over by now, even if the hardware still works. :\


yeahhhh, don't go third-party. appleware is really finicky about that. i've gotten burned by it, too. >>;

I charged it a little and its activation locked anyway
hopefully the exploits come out soon

thx g0vernor

just downgraded to ios 6.1.3 using geekgrade, hacktivated and jailbroken

Chocofreak13

why downgrade? you lose a lot of support for certain features if you do. :\

restoring it to factory didn't help?

no
the imei of the devices are linked to apple's database, so its harder to get past the activation screen now. they check the imei of the device then they can tell what icloud account is associated with it

upgrading my HTC Desire to the Desire S, because of the charging issues and the LED flash failing

Chocofreak13

good luck, man. if you want i can try to ask for Claire's advice on the apple thing, too. :0
