One Girl's Journey into iOS Freedom

I'm a lover of "i" devices, but restrictions? Eh..not so much. So, I decided to do something about it. I'm a self-taught jailbreaker. I've had many successes and many errors. This is where I document what works and what doesn't. I started with an iPhone 3GS running on iOS 4.3.3 and am now working with an iPhone 4 & 4S on iOS 5.1.1.

How did you find the iPhone screen replacement to be? I've dabbled with taking apart phones but iPhone's are a different kind of breed. How experienced are you with the entire process and were you successful? Any issues?

It was tedious and unsuccessful at first. I wound up breaking the battery cable off the motherboard by accident (2 steps in) and had to order a new one before continuing ($8 eBay). After watching a few YouTube videos , I got it apart and repaired fairly easily. The reassembly was extremely difficult because I didn’t organize the screw placement properly. I suggest watching the YouTube how tos BEFORE trying it. I took notes lol after that it was easy. After the 1st time it will be much easier. Holler if you need help. Good luck :)

How to jailbreak iOS 6 & install Cydia.

***Note: For iPhone 3GS, 4 & iPod users only***

So, here’s a photo of the iPhone 5, according to iLabs. Except for the smaller pin charger port, it appears to be exactly the same as my 4S. I’m guessing the big changes are on the inside.

Since the release of the iPhone 3GS, I’ve owned every model. There was a big difference between the 3GS and the 4, I’ll give them that. However, other than the camera upgrade and the A5 processor, there weren’t many major differences in the 4 and the 4S. I even installed Siri on my 4 (via jailbreak tools), so that’s one less reason to trade up. I guess what I’m saying is - if Apple can’t show me a good enough reason, I have no intention of getting caught up in the iPhone 5 craze. My 4S works just fine.

Even though the device doesn’t “officially” exist.

How to reassemble your iphone 4/4S replacement screen

Got the screen apart…now for the putting it all together part..if I’m not back in a week or so…you know the mission has failed lol

We have progress! So far, the battery and back plate have been replaced. Currently working on replacing the front glass & digitizer. It now powers up without having to be connected to the charger. My geek side is totally showing. I’m so fucking excited!!!
