iPhones have become the default choice of many cellphone buyers because of Apple’s great marketing strategy. Although it provides users with great functionality via various applications, the phone is not without its faults. Restrictions by the Apple’s AppStore for iPhones make many tasks impossible on the iPhone without Jailbreaking it.
Jailbreak is not the same as unlocking your iPhone. Unlocking is merely the process to open up your iPhone to accept all carriers. Jailbreaking however, means you are allowed to install 3rd party applications on iPhone. Via these third party applications, users can truly unleash their iPhone’s potential by selecting various themes and most importantly, enable video recording.
Many Jailbreaking tools are available online, each for a different iPhone OS. To pick the right tool one has to consider the operating system of the iPhone and a few other technical specifications. Till now there was not a single tool to provide novice iPhone users with comprehensive knowledge about their cellphone. Now fortunately, F0recast is here.
It is about time that such an application was developed for iPhone users. F0recast currently is for iPhone OS 3.1.3 and only for Windows users (a Mac version is not yet available). System requirements for the application to run properly include .Net Frameworks 2.0 or higher, and iTunes 9.0 or higher.
With this tool, iPhone users can find out their phone’s serial number, the baseband version, bootloader version information, model number, and even unlocking information with appropriate tool (e.g. blacksn0w and ultrasn0w). Most importantly users will be able to determine in advance of Jailbreaking whether the Jailbreak will be tethered (restricted) or not.
F0recast has been released by the same developer behind Sn0wbreeze, the highly popular PwnageTool for Windows. F0recast will undoubtedly exceed Sn0breeze’s popularity because of its simplicity. Thanks to this developer, now even novice users will be able to enjoy their iPhone’s complete features.
