Thread: A few questions about jailbreaking

    Default A few questions about jailbreaking
    hi,
    i have previously run homebrew apps on lots of different devices (psp's,nokia's etc..) and have recently got myself a new iphone 3gs. obviously jailbreaking interested me but i have heard so many varied stories about it and couldnt answer all my questions with online research so i thought id post here and ask.

    firstly..

    when "jailbreaking" is a custom firmware installed?

    what happens to a jailbroken iphone when its plugged into itunes and a new official update is due?

    can apple brick your iphone for jailbreaking?

    also being that im running windows i have read a tut on jailbreaking a 3.1 iphone but the tut said if the phone was preintstalled with it it wouldnt work, im pretty sure but not 100% my 3gs was preinstalled with 3.1 so can i still jailbreak? if so any good links to a tut?

    if my firmware is flashed, or i need to restore my iphone will i lose all my apps that i have payed for from the app store?

    any help with these questions would be appreciated.

    also providing i can jailbreak any links to good sources of homebrew apps and general jailbreak stuff would be appreicated.

    also i understand that jailbreaking may void warranties and that the phone CAN be bricked from running apps that fail or i mess with the firmware but my question about apple bricking it still applies


    thanks
