I'm jail breaking an iPhone 3G running iOS 4.2.1 for a friend... what's popular?

    So is there anything I should install for him? I don't jail break myself so I'm not up to date with the latest popular tweaks.

    Oh and from what jailbreakme.com tells me, I should use redsn0w and the IPSW for my firmware, sounds simple enough, is that right?

    Cheers

    Look up whited00r. It basically brings iOS 5.1 to the 3G. It's pretty awesome.

    Thanks for that info. After it had processed the IPSW it gave me a list of options to choose from, such as enable multitasking and background wallpaper, as well as others, only Cydia and one other was enabled.

    Should I have selected those or can I do it later?

    Since I've never actually used Whited00r(I own a 3GS and an iPhone 4), I have no idea if you can do it later. It's easy enough to just reinstall it again if you can't though.

    Sorry, my mistake. I used redsn0w, but I did Google whited00r and I'm downloading it and I may choose to use it.
