Switching to an iPhone 4S from BlackBerry or Android and curious how to transfer your data over? We've already told you how to transfer data from an existing iPhone to the 4S, but crossing platforms can seem like a bigger headache. It isn't. There's lots of services available to help you transfer data from one device to another. Keep reading for some simple suggestions that can make the process of going from BlackBerry or Android to iPhone and iOS 5 just a little easier for you.
Want to upgrade your iOS device to iOS 5? iTunes makes the process of upgrading painless. And it's just like checking for upgrades and updating any other firmware version in iTunes. The best part is once you're on iOS 5 you can start to receive OTA updates after your initial update to iOS 5.
Switching from any old iPhone to the new iPhone 4S is a pretty easy task. Apple makes this process almost painless thanks to iTunes. After your initial transfer to your new device, iOS 5 will make the process even easier from here on out. But if for some reason you still need to transfer your data manually, we've got you covered!
But again, we'll warn you that beta software has its own qualms to begin with so if you're not comfortable with a few more bugs, we urge you to stay away. Also keep in mind a lot of jailbreak tweaks and apps have not yet been updated to support iOS 5. If you absolutely need to get your beta jailbreak on, follow along for another walk-through.
LockInfo is a great app available to jailbreakers that once again fills a functionality gap -- this one making up for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad's poor notification system. Until Apple implements a better solution, David Ashman has done an incredible job supplementing notifications with LockInfo.
Even though LockInfo is an extremely intuitive and powerful app, the setup can be a bit tedious. But when you get it right, you'll be in notification heaven! Hit the jump for a quick guide and a video with some tips for optimally configuring LockInfo.
*As a side note, LockInfo is $4.99 right now, as of November 7, 2010 - that price will go to $7.99, so if you've been contemplating, you may want to jump on the current price. There is also a 14 day trial if you would like to test it out first.
Wondering how to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with greenpois0n? Jailbreakers have a wealth of options when it comes to iOS 4.1. We've already looked at how to jailbreak iOS 4.1 via limera1n and how to jailbreak via PwnageTool 4.1. Now we're looking at the Mac version of greenpois0n. PC users shouldn't have too much difficulty following along with any of these as the steps are generally the same. It's really up to you what tool you decide to use.

PwnageTool 4.1 was recently released and a lot of jailbreakers have been waiting for this one.

Wondering how to Jailbreak your iOS 4.1 iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad? limera1n was updated to support Mac today and after testing, it's a pretty painless process.

But as usual, here's the standard disclaimer first:
If you are at all hesitant about jailbreaking or don't consider yourself an intermediate to advanced user, we recommend you pass this up. TiPb does not accept any responsibility for broken iOS devices (even though we'll be happy to try and help if you run into any problems along the way).

One of the most common topics in the jailbreak forums is always theme editing and customization. To really be able to truly customize a theme, you need to know how to SSH into your iPhone. Anyone who is already familiar with web development and using an FTP client should be right at home. For the most part, FTP clients are also capable of SSH. If you don't have a client, don't worry, there's plenty of free ones.
And now for the typical disclaimer - if you aren't comfortable messing with your phone's file system and the possibility of having to completely restore if something goes wrong, don't proceed any further. As always, we aren't responsible for any damage you may do to your phone, so proceed at your own risk. If this all sounds okay to you, read on iPhone ninja!
