    I got in trouble for posting a link to ios 4 downloads. I thought it was ok being free but I thought wrong.


    A common problem when installing iPhodroid is that when it goes into recovery mode instead of giving you the option to install it boots up normally. This is how you get it to work.


    The steps are:

    - Put iPhone in DFU (remember to put your iphone in DFU on this mode yout itunes will detect the phone as Recovery, but if no SERIAL appears on itunes, you're in DFU if you restore in Recovery Mode it will not work)

    - Restore with iTunes (update to 4.0.2)

    - Jailbreak with redsn0w (it asks for 4.0 firmware; just select a 4.0 firmware it will work even though your running 4.0.2)

    - Once fully restored Run iPhodroid (one single click)

    This should solve your problem, comment what you think and if you have any questions.

    downloads links:

    I dunno what he got "disciplined" for but I'm just wondering. I restored and jailbroke Saturday so I'm on 4.0 then restore to 4.0. I've installed stuff on my phone again but I don't know if I can install iPhodroid now or not..does it have to be a fresh firmware?

    But you better back up everything on your iPhone in case something goes wrong and you have to restore
