i know i asked the same question earlier...i noticed eachhas a 1 gig and a 500M partition
whats the advantage of te 1G ipsw
How much iphone hard drive space is set aside to install JB stuff.
i also use the 500MB as well, no problemsThis was the reason for the larger partitions...... But you don't need the large partition anymore because Cydia doesn't install programs into the root folder anymore (I think Installer was the only one to do that). So setting aside 1GB is kinda a waste.
I'm using the 500MB version on my phone and my girls phone with no issues at all.
The custom ipsw is like jailbreak in a can. Instead of going through the button pressing and everything, some very kind people have made a firmware file where all we have to do is plug the phone in, and hit shift restore and wait.Not sure im understanding these custom files. So what is being made is a IPSW file(s) that we used to just get from say iclarified to update with iTunes? I just want to make sure what im dealing with here.
Whats is the exact difference between activated and unactivated?
I thought i read the 2G was simpler and didnt need al this but ill have to go look again.
I also have a 3G to do it too as well.
Oh really? So if i download one of those activated files for my 2G and use the shift key and restore with iTunes, thats all i have to do?The custom ipsw is like jailbreak in a can. Instead of going through the button pressing and everything, some very kind people have made a firmware file where all we have to do is plug the phone in, and hit shift restore and wait.
Activated is for phones being used on other unsanctioned networks, for instance T mobile instead of ATT
Unactivated is if your phone is being used on on a sanctioned network ATT, Rogers, O2 and so on.
