FFS, just tried out the wireless sync, and iTunes has put ALL of my apps, and songs back onto the phone.

i have turned off wifi sync as everytime i opened itunes it would then sync to my ipad and iphone and just hang for about 3 minutes, pointless if i want to listen to music straight away!

Just updated my phone to iOS5 and Jailbroke.

Seem alright so far, sync'd my contacts with gmail just in case after everybody was moaning on FB they had lost everything after updating.

Only thing thats not gone well is that my TomTom app won't sync back

And lost all my messages and notes, could have sworn they all got backed up.

So far I cannot see how to create a separate one. Unless you don't sign in when the setup starts. Then sign into the services individually. Hmmmm

Yep, I was holding out for the untethered but then realised I couldnt remember the last time my phone went off so just went for it.

When the untethered gets release you'll be able to just run redsnow straight over the top so wont be a big PITA.

Is the Tethered as simple to do then? My phone also ever gets turned off but having no Jailbreak is actually getting to me now I didn't realise how much I used it for shortcuts etc

As Ashleh says, really straight forward, just update to iOS5 as normal through iTunes (if you don't need to preserve your baseband for unlock) then open redsnow and click Jailbreak. If your phone goes off, plug it in, launch redsnow and hit 'Boot Tethered'.

You know a lot of people with some dodgy tans Ash.

I'd like an icon on my first screen on the phone to direct dial contacts, just like you have but not on the notification centre.

Lol. In order, Mrs, best mate, mum, Brother.

I'm sure there's an (jb) app for that.

Put a load more widgets on just to try it and the slide down tab started going really slow so limited it to just the ones I'll use.

Gutted some of the apps are t working yet either like barrell, bitesms and mywi.
