  1. Dear friends I am facing some problem after the recent jailbreak. my photo app is not working I mean to say that I have some snaps in my photo app. These appear to be there if I open my app where as when I open the camera roll icon then it would say No PHOTOS OR VIDEOS. I am unable to figure out what is the problem.

  2. hi i have an iphone 4 with ios 5.1 and i want to upgrade it without changing the baseband (im gevey user) so should use redsnow? or there is other method?

  3. I updated my iPhone 5 over the air. In the instructions it says don’t do it over the air. Am I screwed? or it will still work? Thank you

  4. Bom dia, caros amigo fiz o jailbreak no meu iphone 4s na ios 6.1 e ocoreu tudo certo mas agora meu iphone nao sai da tela da maçã, entao gostaria de saber como faço para tirar o iphone da tela da maçã e posteriormente fazer o jailbreak untethered? abraço.

  5. guys does it support iphone 4 gsm? what would happen to the previous apps and cydia apps i have downloaded? all of them will be erase? pls help , tnx.

  6. I jailbreak my iphone 5, iPad Mini and everything was fine including cydia. I can understand that cydia tweaks can’t be installed due to server overload. But why it failed installing my backup apps from iTunes? Do I have to install a tweak to enable that? I got installation fail! Then again, what’s the point of jailbreaking if one are unable to install piracy apps and games???

    1. Its not all about piracy! There are some great third party apps out there that are really usefull that apple dont want you to be able to do on your iDevice, the only way to use these is thru Jailbreak. Sure, try games and apps but if you like them buy them and support the developers…

      ps. Well done evad3rs, great job!

    2. Hi,

      I think you should install AppSync and MobileSubstrate (it will not be installed by default with jailbreaking or Cydia,) in order to be able to install piracy apps from iTunes.

      hope it helps !
      ps. Well done evad3rs, great job!

    3. Freedom with your device, piracy isn’t the point. You can easily steal a chocolate bar from the store every time you go if you’re careful, doesn’t mean it’s okay to do so.
