On the last episode I talked about Frash which is Flash for iOS.  Seems I forgot to mention an important point and that is you need to add a resource to Cydia before you can install it. Here are the instructions for installing Frash.

 

  1. Launch Cydia 
  2. Tap the - Manage - button
  3. Tap - Sources
  4. In the Top Right Tap the - Edit - button 
  5. In the Top Left Tap the - Add - button
  6. Then In the pop-up box, type http://repo.benm.at/   
  7. Tap - Add Source - to close the box
  8. In the Top Right Tap the - Done - button
  9. Go to the - Search - section in Cydia and search for "Frash"
  10. Install the app.

VERY IMPORTANT - You MUST include the  "/" at the end of the URL in step 6 or it will not work.

Again as I said in the show I see Frash more needed for the iPad than the iPhone or iPod Touch. But this will work for any iOS device.  Once it is installed go to a site that has Flash running and you will see a light grey box with "Flash" in the middle - tap on "Flash" and it will run the flash elements for that site.

Below is a video showing the jailbreak of an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.0.1 - However this jailbreak works for any iOS device running iOS 4.0.1 or lower.  There were some early issues with MMS and Facetime not working. It is reported that MMS is now working.  I have heard reports from others that skype does not work in the background.  And I am sure there will be some other issues that are found. 

UPDATE: 8/2/10 11:42 PM CT - I jailbroke my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0.1 - NO issues - All is working great including Facetime. Looks like they have resolved the issues they had last night.  Both my iPhone 4 and 3GS are working great. As with any jailbreak - as you ad more and more apps you increase your odds exponentially of there being a conflict.  So keep your jailbreak App downloads to a min and to just the ones you need.  If you try an app and don't like it - remove it ASAP.  Also those jailbreaking with iOS 4.0.1 for an iPhone seemed to report the best results. Mostly the reporting has been overwhelmingly positive for this Jailbreak - Kudos to those involved in making this possible.  

UPDATE 2: 8/3/10 12:05 AM CT - One other common thread seems to be those that do the jailbreak when connected to wifi are having better results then those trying the jailbreak via 3G. Also it seems better when clicking on a link like that below then when typing in the URL.  If you do have an issue - make sure to force quite safari and then clear your cache before trying again. 


BIG NOTE: Do not try to jailbreak if you don't like when things go to (expletive). If you need your device for your business and being without it for any period of time will cause you to loose your job - stop now.  If you get mad at your significant other at how they fold towels or put the toilet paper on a roll - Jailbreaking is probably not for your personality.  Sometimes things break and your device will likely crash more often then if it was not jailbroken. 

 

To Jailbreak just point your iOS device running iOS 4.0.1 or lower to:

http://www.jailbreakme.com

There is no need for a computer, SHSH Blobs or anything else.  Just point your iOS device to the link above and slide the slider to jailbreak.  See the video for more info.  

 

To learn how to use Cydia - The App store for Jailbreaking - See the following tutorials.

Of course - Make sure you backup before trying this.  And don't upgrade to iOS 4.1 or 4.0.2 or whatever comes after iOS 4.0.1 if you want to use this jailbreak method.

This post talks about the new very very easy to use jailbreak.  Just point your iOS device safari browser at:

 

http://www.jailbreakme.com

 

No need for mac or pc to jailbreak with this - do it all from your iOS device. However there is the issue the there are some issues.

I would highly suggest you hold off right now - as there are still some tech issues - especially with Facetime and MMS.

I am sure there will be updates on this coming soon.

If you do decide to do the jailbreak - please give your feedback below.
