Jailbreaking by a novice cont’

Note: 2 hours give or take to Restore and update and that is with only about 2/3 of my music loaded, still lack putting another 2000 songs back on to my phone since I replaced it 3 months ago…1220a now the real fun begins, Lord please let me not brick my phone!

Okay as the butterflies race in my stomach and the taste of onions from the left over sandwich of 4 hours ago lingers I ‘leave my phone plugged in and power it off…’ @1228a yep it has so far taken more time to read the directions, throughly again, do it and blog it than the actual “jailbreaking”…

So with palms sweating I held down the power button, then the home button, then released the power button while holding the home button (come on have you done this, do you hear me…anyone – insert echo, echo here) !

Then the pop “you must have misunderstood, check youtube or google for direction” warning message pops up, I look at my phone and see a trace of a darker black line down the middle of the screen, think oh crap, here comes the loose stool part and then let go, lay my phone down and click next on the box expecting to try again and boom there it is, “jailbreak installing” stuff happening on my phone and wow, nice palm tree pic and 4 or so minutes later while I am still typing this crap my phone appears to be back and jailbroken??? I pushed the home button, things appear to be in order? I got this screen…

Now let’s see…ah yes, hello Cydia you are new to my phone…what can you do for me? Let you know if, how and what is living in my new world. For now it seems that my somewhat nervous stomach may be able to calm and I will see what new apps await me in my new app store…  Thanks Iclarified for making it really easy!

Oh yeah and most importanly, thank you LORD for my jailbroken, non-brick Idevice! Good Night and Good luck!

Obligatory Will Rogers quotes

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

There are 3 kinds of people the one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking spaces.
