I have a friend who recently bought an iPhone off from craigslist and asked me if I could help him to jailbreak and unlock it. The phone baseband.
For this method, you need to jailbreak your iPhone/iPad. Once jailbroken => launch Cydia => search for iFile and install it.
Once install, start iFile.
When you first start iFile, you are placed in the /var/mobile directory. The hosts file is located in /etc/hosts so in order to edit it, you need to navigate to the /etc directory.
To do that, you click on “var” under your phone’s signal bar => next click on “/”
Now scroll up, find “etc” and click on it.
Find the file “hosts” and click on it => then click on Text Viewer.
Now click on “Edit” (below your signal bar) and start editing.
I finally bought an iPhone 4S, yay!!! I bought a few apps then every time when I try to sync apps to my Mac, iTunes pops up saying it wants to delete my apps.
It took me a while but I finally figured out how to sync my apps to my Mac:
In iTunes => under Devices => right click on my iPhone and click on “Transfer Purchases from”.
iTunes would start copying the apps to my Mac.
Once done, I can then tick on “Sync Apps” without a problem.
