    Details Are Always Important:

    Software: 3.1.3
    Type: iPhone 1st Generation or 2G
    Jailbraking Software: redsn0w 0.9 beta3
    Reason for Posting: Minor Questions after I Jailbrake it.

    I have jailbroken before and usually I just use redsn0w to unlock the iPhone so I dont have to pay to activate it because its not active anymore. I have a 3G SIM card from the phone I originally had. I want to know if there is a source on either Cydia or Icy that will let me use 3G signal on my iPhone 2G and if adding Cydia to my iPhone is worth it because all I can think of is the Camera and the the five icon dockscreen.

    Any suggestions besides getting a new iPhone. :)

    Your phone does not have the physical capability of sending and receiving HSDPA data. No software can create a radio where one doesn't exist.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You're joking right?
    A cydia app that will turn your 2G radio chip inside your iphone magically to a 3G chipset?
    Maybe theres a hack that will turn my toaster into a PS3 :D

    Okay, thanks for the humorous output. I am not familiar with the layout of how a phone in any way shape or form works, I am a computer guy but my phone is currently being a pain in the ass with signal so I thought that I might ask. I simply thought that it was similar to the bluetooth setup.

    Also, tell me some things that will make my iPhone worth while on Cydia or Icy if I add them when I jailbrake it.

    Cydia is the jailbraking app store, so yeah it is a must have.

    Lockinfo alone is well worth jailbreaking for IMO :)
