  • 16 GB iPhone and 32 GB iPod Touch Released


    Apple released on Tuesday a 16GB version of the iPhone, retailing at $499. A 32GB iPod Touch is also now available, at the same price.

    Remember, if you bought your iPhone within the last 14 days, you CAN return it, pay the 10% restocking fee, and the $100 difference and upgrade to the 16GB version. This version IS running the new bootloader and 1.1.3, so is currrently NOT unlockable.

    The new iPhone IS available in the UK and Germany, at 329 in the UK and 499 Euros in Germany.

      Yes. It is just like jailbreaking any iPhone with 1.1.3...

      Hope to pick up a 16gb soon for myself. I've been playing with my wife's 8gb for a few months and love it.

      This is NOT correct. The 16GB and any other iPhone purchased out of the box with 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 is NOT jailbreakable as of right now. You can only jailbreak phones that were originally 1.1.1 or earlier.

      picked up a 16gb iphone today. The screen looks yellow compared to my bro's side by side. It really sucks. I'm taking it back to apple store tomorrow. The blues look white and the whites look yellow. If you were thinking about getting the 16gb, i would just get the 8gb with a nice screen.

      Has anyone thought of just taking the memory out of the 16gb and seeing if it fits the 8gb?

      Of course that would require buying one...but at least you could have 16gb and jailbroken

      wait, ONE OTHER DIFFERENCE in the new 16gb model on the positive note... the speaker is MUCH louder. Side by side test with a "day 1" 8gb model (which is also on 1.1.3 fw)

      That IS Correct. Of course you cant just jailbreak 1.1.3, but you downgrade to 1.1.1, jailbreak, oktoprep, 1.1.2, soft upgrade to 1.1.3, lockdownd file, you should have a fully operating and jailbroken 1.1.3

      honestly im using windows and the regular guide that i use all the time where i restore otb phone to 1.1.1 the use jailbreakme.com make sure i have the full capacity of storage not the 300mb error... than add oktoprep and upgrade to 1.1.2 and jailbreak using the 1.1.2 jailbreak folder from conceited software and use the official 1.1.3 jailbreak from installer and then insert my tmobile sim with stealth sim on top. hopefully no flaws yet with the 16gig.

      by the way im currently at my last step my 16 gig is currently 1.1.2 jailbroken! about to do the dev team upgrade from installer!!

      OK I left out that I was talking about an unlocked 1.1.3. It would still be stuck on AT&T because of the bootloader 4.6.

      Right. Wait: It wasn't improved at all with this latest release! I just got one and while I like/need the storage, I'm a little underwhelmed about the rest of the stock phone

      @ MOEPLO : I am eagerly waiting for your 16gb results. I have one and I can't afford to experiment at this stage.

      Yea I am impressed with the speaker and mic, my friends said it was easier to hear when i spoke on speakerphone... plus their voice is louder and when i connect it to my car I don't have to max out my car volume level to hear songs.

      anyway, I'll return my phone tomorrow and see if I can get a screen that doesn't look like its been owned by a smoker for 10 years, and then repost so no one else settles for a yellow screen
