iPhone Newbie: What Are The Most Essential Apps That You Need To Install

The very first thing that you need to do is to jailbreak you iPhone. When you have done this, you will have Cydia and Installer icon in your screen.
So, here are the most essential apps that you need to install:
1. Boss Prefs
This app is the combination of all toggle that you can think of including 3G toggle, EDGE toggle, AutoCorrect toggle and much more. So, you don’t have to go to Settings each time you just want to switch of 3G or others.

2. Caller ID Fix 2.1 or 2.2
Depends on your firmware, you need to install Caller ID Fix 2.1 for firmware 2.1 and so on. What this app will do is to correct the phone number so that when somebody calls you, you can see their name on the iPhone.

3. iBlacklist
You can switch off SMS preview here. But in firmware 2.2, you can switch it off in Settings. For 2.1, you need to use this app.

4. ACToggle for Boss Prefs
This is Boss Prefs addon so you can add one more toggle to Boss Prefs that will enable you to turn off AutoCorrect, but in firmware 2.2, you can turn it off in Settings. For firmware 2.1, you need to use this addon.

5. SBSettings
This app enables you to quick open settings toggle by swiping your finger from top left to right. Then you can turn off and on any toggle without leaving your opened app such as Maps.

6. LockDown
I use to lock my phone using Passcode. But each time I slide to unlock, I need to enter my passcode and that is a hassle to me. So, by using LockDown, you can lock certain app that is available on your screen individually.

7. Swirly MMS
Some people say iPhone can’t send and receive MMS.

Less essential:
1. Winterboard
This app will enable you to change the default iPhone theme to wide choice of theme available in Cydia.

NOTE: All this apps are from Cydia, that is only available if you jailbreak your iPhone. This apps are valid for iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G.

How To Remove iPhone Call Forwarding Notification When Making A Call

One thing that I hate when using any handphone(iPhone included) is the pop-up message about the call forwarding notification. On my previous phone that is Sony Ericsson, the pop-up is dismissed after few seconds but for the iPhone, you need to press the ‘Dismiss’ button.
So, how to remove this Call Forwarding Active notification?

1. Download and install ‘iBlacklist’ app from Cydia. Use search from the bottom Cydia menu.
2. Open iBlacklist, scroll down and click ‘Extras’.

3. In the Extras menu, turn on Call Forward Privacy.

4. That’s all.
Note: After you exit by hitting the Home button, iBlacklist will respring your Springboard. Wait a moment and you are to use iPhone without Call Forwarding Active notification anymore!

How To Install 2.2 Apps to 2.1 Firmware

Some apps are made to be only available for the newest 2.2 firmware. But don’t worry, you can get it to work in 2.1 firmware using the method I’m going to tell you here.
1. Download the FWChanger from Cydia. Use the search menu then write “FW”.

2. Then, open the app.
3. In Firmware section, write “2.2” and in the Build section, write “5G77”.
4. Then, click “Set Custom Firmware”.
5. If everything is ok, you will be able to install 2.2 apps to your 2.1 firmware.

iPhone Error 1600 after Firmware 2.2 to Firmware 2.1 Downgrade

Just a moment ago, I have upgrade my iPhone 3G to firmware 2.2. My iPhone is the jailbreak version. I thought everything is okay when I upgrade it, but when I upgrade to 2.2, my iPhone can’t detect my network which is available when I’m using 2.1.
So, this is what I did:
1. Downgrade it to 2.1 again, but then I get error 1600 when I try to restore from DFU mode. This is crazy.
2. Next, what I did is to remove my SIM PIN lock(using another phone) and try to restore using normal method(recovery mode) without DFU mode. Note: if you are stuck in DFU mode, hold Power+Home for 10 sec and them power it on again normally using power button.
3. Then, I restore it to the backup that is date that dated before the 2.2 upgrade. Now, everything is fine!

Here is what I can deduce after my research on the net about iPhone error 1600:
1. This happens only to iTunes 8.0 and later.
2. This happens to jailbroken iPhone with the custom firmware(whether 2.1 or 2.2).
3. This happens when you try to restore your iPhone using DFU mode.
If the reason are like above, read below.

The solution that can be done is:
1. Downgrade iTunes 8.0 to iTunes 7.7. Here is the torrent link for Windows XP
2. Get a custom firmware (torrent this) or make your own custom firmware using Pwnage Tool for Mac.
3. DFU your iPhone the restore using iTunes 7.7 that you have DL’ed.
4. Even if you are on Mac OS X, you can just boot camp your Mac, then install the iTunes 7.7.

That’s all. Hope that can solve your problem about iPhone error 1600!
