    Default Naive gal needs help/advice
    Firstly, excuse my ignorance as I'm very new to all of this. I have been doing tons of reading though. Regardless, the more I read the more confused I get

    Well, my boyfriend bought me an iphone for Xmas. He told me it was new (yet he purchased from some guy on Craig's list). Regardless, everything seems to be new. However, I was told that unless I jailbreak the phone (it's a 1.1.2) none of the features on it would work. However, many of the features on the phone do work (wi fi, google maps, safari, weather, stock info, clocks). Just youtube and the actual phone don't work. Is that normal? Or has this phone been jailbroken? Oh, installer is on there too. So he definitely did something to the phone. Does that mean i can add third party apps. to it? Suggestions? Advice?

    Thanks in advance,

    If installer is on there it is jailbroken. You can try here for the Youtube fix:

    albeit a bit dated, I thought this issue has looong been fixed. If you have installer on there yes you can add 3rd party apps.

    If worse comes to worse you may have to downgrade your phone to older firmware and try loading the hacks (installer) all over again:

    **edit: I am having trouble getting/linking to the guides section of this site.. not sure if there is a more current guide for you ~ 1.1.2 ---1.1.1 yet.
