iFuntastic 3.0.3 "unshackles" iPhone

updated 03:50 pm EDT, Thu August 30, 2007

iFuntastic 3.0.3 released

BitSplit Enterprises has released iFuntastic 3.0.3, a graphical utility that allows any user with no technical knowledge to "unshackle" an iPhone and change various aspects of the cellular handset. iFuntastic 3.0.3 features large, simple buttons along the left side of a window that guide users through the process of unshackling the phone, changing the home screen, modifying or replacing the carrier logo, updating ringtones, and managing files. The author warns that eager iPhone owners hoping to modify their phones must do so at their own risk, but adds that many successful customizations were already performed during the development process. The software is available for free, and features a donation button for users inclined to support the creator.

The latest release of iFuntastic offers support for PowerPC-based Macs, and incorporates one-time unjailing called "unshackling." The update features drag-and-drop support for any file in the new "File Manager" formerly known as "Browser," and includes an info page containing all the necessary documentation to use the application.



Further changes include the ability to edit text files directly on an iPhone; drag-and-drop installation of native applications wit6hout the need to restart the phone; improved ringtone installation; drag-and-drop replacement of system sounds; and a completely reworked home screen editor. iFuntastic 3.0.3 supports multiple home screen "pages" for quick access to a maximum of 80 applications, and renames custom home screen "wallpaper" to "backgrounds" to distinguish between Apple's "real" backgrounds.

    It sucks...

    It really is for the novice user, for the experienced SSH is MUCH better. The unshackle process is still a pain.

    RE: it sucks

    That novice user would be me, especially when it comes to coding and/or working in Terminal. I may be just paranoid or something, but I'm still a bit leery on hacking/unlocking my iPhone. But this software does seem tempting, especially for the faint-hearted..
