As you know, Apple recently released its latest iOS firmware, the iOS 4.0.2 that seeks to patch security exploits that were discovered with PDF and also reportedly renders JailbreakMe.com useless. However, as it is now known, jailbreaking the latest iOS 4.0.2 is possible with the existing version of Redsnow.

This is how you do it

  • Download and update iOS 4.0.2 on your iPhone and also download RedSn0w (Mac | Windows) to your computer
  • Launch Redsn0w 0.95b5-5. Select iOS 4 (Final Version) while prompted
  • Click on ‘Install Cydia’ and when prompted, click ‘Next’
  • Switch off your iPhone and plug it to the computer. Now click ‘Next’
  • Take your iPhone to recovery mode by following the instructions. You basically have to hold the Power button down and in this mode, also press the Home button down for close to 10 seconds. You follow this by taking your hands off the Power button while keeping the Home button pressed. The phone enters recovery mode and installation begins.
  • RedSn0w will now begin the jailbreak process. Once done, your iPhone will reboot and the process will be complete.

Of course, I am no techie and thanks to RedmondPie for the detailed instructions.

How much do you hate to see your close friends sneakily checking out photos and emails on your iPhone? If this is something you do not want to happen, you need to jailbreak your device. That’s because a new iPhone app called Locktopus could help you protect your individual iPhone apps with a password.

To get started, you need to first jailbreak your iPhone. Once that’s done, head over to Cydia and search & purchase the Locktopus app. Installing the application will create a new lock functionality in the Settings page where a password can be set up.

To lock/unlock any app, simply tap and hold any app to view the characteristic app-shake screen (used to delete apps). You will now see a lock button against every app that can be tapped to lock or unlock an app.

Of course, remember that jailbreaking can void your warranty and all. So, all this is at your own risk!

Install Flash On iPhone 4 Using Frash Jailbreak Application

The tussle between Apple and Adobe will potentially never get resolved. That means Flash lovers will never be able to access Adobe Flash on their iDevices for quite some time to come.

The tussle between Apple and Adobe will potentially never get resolved. That means Flash lovers will never be able to access Adobe Flash on their iDevices for quite some time to come. That’s if you are not willing to jailbreak your iPhone.

Popular iPhone hacker, Comex, has announced that he has successfully ported Frash – the jailbreak utility that lets users run Flash 10 on the iPad – to the new iPhone 4. Of course, as you guessed it, the process will require you to first jailbreak your iPhone. Do remember that though jailbreaking has been made legal in countries like the US, the procedure can still void your Apple warranty and can also potentially slow down your device performance.

Nevertheless, if you have made up your mind, you can first proceed to JailbreakMe.com, the website that provides a browser-based jailbreaking utility to break into your iPhone OS. Once you are done with the jailbreak, you can follow these steps below

  • Launch Cydia and open the ‘Manage’ tab. Tap on the ‘Edit’ option
  • Add the following repository : http://repo.benm.at/
  • Now navigate to the the ‘Search‘ tab and key-in Frash. Tap on the Frash app and tap ‘Install‘ to install the application
  • Reboot the iPhone to complete the process

You are done. Flash content can now be accessed from the websites on Mobile Safari. If you need more help with the installation, watch the video below.
