    Ok, as my phone is very dear to me and although didnt cost me a lot i really don't want to f*** it up, i've jailbroken a plethora of other devices before and have always known the risk at the time, and what may or may not happen and that it was always recoverable. Now with the iPhone 4 im not sure, i mean on engadget for example they said they managed to brick one of their phones, is that bricked beyond repair? or can it be recovered, if it doesnt get past the boot screen can you still put it in DFU mode and then restore to a previous iPhone setup?

    Yes, it can always be put into DFU and restored. Jailbreaking the iPhone 4 will be the best decision youve ever made

    I left a comment on Engadget actually the day the jailbreak article came out. I stated that they need to stop spreading false information about brickage on the iDevices.

    Every iDevice has a hardware chip in it that performs something called DFU (Device firmware upgrade) that when activated, allows the user to directly restore to stock firmware.

    You can go in and delete everything on your device, essentially causing a "brick", but DFU being hardware and not software based, as soon as you activate and restore you are back in business.

    VM? the only thing i can relate that to is virtual machine lol
    and nah its a 920, i've had it for ages but my heatsink's pins cracked so i dropped my overclock from 3.4Ghz to 3 and now i've got the new pins im re-attaching it and upping the clock speed again

    ONT:VM in this context means Virtual Memory even though it's not really RAM but it's a long story and there is thousands of threads on this issue.

    OFT:Why on earth do you need to over-clock a 920 when we have turbo-charge? And I use liquid cooling:

    no need to worry about the heat-sink and fan falling and destroying my 5850.

    I'd never bother with virtual memory anyway its a bit pointless

    and the 920 had a max clock speed of 2.66Ghz, thats just not enough by anyones stretch of the imagination

    and eugh closed system liquid cooling, custom kits all the way

    Im running an akasa ak-967 nero, i like the way the H50 has a screw mount system though but that would involve me removing my motherboard, more hassle than its worth, and your 5850? the H50 wont cool a graphics card afaik

    no i meant with liquid i dont need to worry about a huge heatsink potential screwing everything underneath it if it falls. and it doesnt matter that much about the clock as like i said turbo charge will kick in an turn up heat.and hyperthreading gives us essitianaly 8cores anyways g2g on my ipod in bed

    yeah im not sure the original 920's had turbo charge, and i frequently max out all 8 logical cores at 3Ghz and have done at 3.4Ghz, im thinking if i ge ta new case i might try and hit 4Ghz on air, which should be ok for operating temps of 40-50C idle

    Double Post: its done and it works a treat, i've yet to reboot it to see if it'll be affected by these green pixels or if it'll fail on boot shall see
