Thread: How to make your iphone 3G!

  1. #1
    Exclamation How to make your iphone 3G!
    With the help of my brain, Photoshop, and the newest versions of apptapp and customize I made my iphone 3G!

    How to:
    -turn on your iphone
    -open installer.app
    -upgrade to version 3.0b4
    -restart
    -upgrade customize to latest and greatest
    -restart
    -open customize notice its all new including the ability to change the edge icon
    -on your pc or mac open photoshop and create a new file thats 20x20 pixles with a transparent backround
    -zoom to 1000%
    -change the main color to any color except white or black (I like red :p)
    -with the text tool type "3G" (without quotes)
    -try to center the best you can
    -save 2 copies one as 3G.png and one as 3G-1.png
    -save to desktop or equily acessible folders
    -connect your iphone to a router or to your pc or mac via ad-hoc
    -find your iphones ip (ex: xxx.xxx.1.102)
    -with a sftp program connect to your iphone with user:root and pass:dottie
    -navigate to var/root/Library/Customize
    -go to folder edgeimages
    -create folder 3G
    -in folder 3G place the 2 images
    -back on your iphone open customize and tap edge icons and tap 3G set
    -say OK
    -Press the home button let it restart
    -disconect from wifi
    -open safari and watch how blazing fast your iphone is!! :o

    This took me about ten mins to do.

    P.S I dont know if its me or not but my iphone does actually seem faster

    P.P.S If you dont own photoshop try Gimp if you think gimp sucks like me be lazy and download it premade

    Compared to some other useless crap i've seen on iPhone fora, this doesn't seem so bad. I might actually do this "mod" for kicks...

    Spam is as over/misused as bricked. This may not be the most interesting or useful post, but it's not spam. Spam contains an ad or a link to a page looking for traffic. This post has neither.
    I'm so glad I don't have to meet The Internet People.

    Not spam, just completely useless.

    Then wouldn't that mean that themes are completely useless? I know I'm stretching a point here, but we could all live without themes as well.

    Themes are good if they are original.

    The useless ones are the people who just change a background and call it 'new'.

    And I completely agree with teufel657.

    I wasn't debating the quality of themes, only their actual usefulness.

    Don't get me wrong - I love themes (especially metal_blue), but they're strictly an adornment for the iPhone, as far as I'm concerned.
