    Hey guys,
    Would you tell me the best scenario for this please.

    I've got a friend who got an iPhone and he wants it jailbroken. Say I jailbreak it for him on my iMac (as he has a fossil for a PC), but then he wants to download apps from the app store. Is it not going to ask for my iTunes password?
    Thanks

    Well as long as you don't register the phone with your account, the phone wont ask you for your password.

    Just QuickPwn it with your Mac, don't do anything with iTunes. You should be fine.

    So, he would have to copy that IPSW (sp?) custom file to his cpu and restore from his iTunes?

    You can just QuickPwn it on your machine, don't have to transfer anything to his I believe.

    OR you can make a Custom IPSW with PwnageTool on your Mac, send it to him, and he can Restore to that through iTunes on his own machine.
