    I jailbroke my iPhone 4 on iOS 5 beta a while back, but tweaks utilizing Winterboard simply wouldn’t work, since Winterboard hadn’t been optimized for iOS 5.

    Can I use Winterboard now? Have they fixed it?

  • untethered iphone 4S please soon!

      You do realize this is a blog and not a developer site, and that the power that be are already hard at work on the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. It’s not like idownloadblog be like, “Alex wants an untethered Jailbreak, we weren’t going to post one but now I guess should!”

    I downloaded Slide Center from cydia. How do I get it to show my pics?

    • Burge

      Settings . Notifacations ..and its in the there , you need to turn it on.

      • dw1981

        I did, but no pics are showing. The widget is blank.

    This is exactly why I am flabbergasted at apple customers. The second something gets announced or released the spaztastic Igroupies want all the tweaks and stuff right as soon as its released. No wonder why apple made te 4s. They don’t need money. They want to drop all the idiots to android so they don’t have to deal with all that incessant whining. I want this now I want that now. Did your mommy ever tell you NO!!!! GTFO!!! ???

    My wife has an iphone4,and i got to play around with ios5 for hours. I just bought the Samsung galaxy s2 for myself. All i have to sy my friends is that apple time os over. Not only android is much smoother and better but the phones have no comparison either. I am falling in love with android, and i swear to god the honest truth for me is that Samsung sgs2 along with android is way better than iphone and ios

    • Martin

      That’s your opinion. I think android sucks balls!!! And iOS is million times better os

    • MrDealHD

      Good thing you didnt test out the iphone 4s, because its been tested and is twice as fast as the Galaxy S2, plus the graphics are 7 times better. Yes, all this has been tested out by dozens of companies. I wonder why people always compare brand new android products with year old apple products, lol. It bewilders me…
      Also has does it feel having to use two hands to operate a mobile phone? your thumb cant extend around the whole screen unless your Rajon Rondoooooooooooooo….

        It isn’t a matter of better and/or worse. It is a matter of preferences and likes and dislikes. Samsung Galaxy II and the new HTC’s are awesome phones. My wife just upgraded her HTC and I have to say that it is an excellent and very rewarding experience to use that phone.

    • thats your opinion, man. cant accomodate that with my hand its too big to be a handyphone

    I’m not on iOS 5 yet so my question is are the notifications better with stock or with the jailbreak widget option?

    • MrDealHD

      yo send me that pic son…saw it a couple years back and was like damnnnnnnnn…

      • Jason Masters

        Lmao at least someone here likes it!

    • DomPerignon

      Lockinfo is better that the new Notifications Center. Don’t upgrade to iOS 5 yet.

  • Jay

    Off topic. Is it just me or the shortcut button for the camera is missing from the lock screen?

    • Jimmy

      You have to double press the home button for it to appear.

      • Jay

        Nice. Thanks!

    • Jason

      I noticed that too! I thought there was supposed to be one.. confused.

  • Thank you
