    Red face I know nothing, need basic help. PLEASE
    Hi, ok so heres whats going on. My mother gave me her 1st gen, 4g iphone because she upgraded to the 3g. I got it unlocked and use it with t-mobile now. All i want to do is have all the fun cool stuff on my phone, like the snake game and i dont understand how to do this. I understand i need an installer? But i dont know what that is, or how to get it on my phone. Pretty much im a dummy and dont understand please help.

    What method did you use to unlock it? you should have everything you need by just unlocking it. use winpwn, that should help you install either Installer or Cydia (I recommend Cydia). which is basically like an opensource appstore

    I dont know, i didnt unlock it myself. i paid a store to do it cause i didnt want to mess around with it and break it =/. My boyfriend tried unlocking it himself but didnt work so. Should i still try cydia? I have software verson 2.0.1 if that helps? I'm sorry i just have no knowledge of this stuff.

    You are going to need to use something like Winpwn in order to get Cydia onto your ohone if it is not on there already. it is really easy to use... takes you througha step by step process. The thing that will probably anger you is that the unlock is just about as easy as adding cydida/other apps. Hopefully you didn't spend alot of money on unlocking it!

    No, it is actually going to re-unlock the phone. Shouldn;t be a problem. It will take like 5 minutes. If you need any more help just pm me or leave another message on the post.
