Also see my3G app below). 3G unrestrictor removes the 3G data usage restriction that haunts most of the iPhone apps.

This application works by tricking iPhone into thinking that it is working over a wifi network rather than being connected to a 3G one.

    The 3G limit on the iPhone is 20MB. My3G is another app to trick your phone in to thinking it is on wifi instead of 3G.

    The app is called MyWi (not MiWi). PDANet is another app that lets you tether your 3G connection from your phone to a computer/laptop. Since AT&T started cracking down on unauthorized tethering usage early this year (they will CHANGE YOUR PLAN TO A TETHERING PLAN) it has become more popular because of it’s built in methods of masking your tethering usage to make it appear you are not tethering.

    iBlacklist is another great app that does the same thing as Mcleaner.

    • KNSydia

      July 1, 2012 at 10:23 am

      Try using Absinthe 2.0.4.

      This is good if your running on a newer software version 5x

      There is a free download just google it, when it prompts you click save then run. then when your done extract all files and thats basically it. Follow the rest of the instructions they give you.

    • KNSydia

      July 1, 2012 at 10:18 am

      Hi Daryl, your problem for the Sara application might be because you have not added the source yet. Go into Cydia, go to manage, edit, add, and type in this repo:


      Then within this repo you will have different options to choose from depending on your iDevice. Hope this helped you.

    • KNSydia

      July 1, 2012 at 10:12 am

      Hey, MyWi is a wifi tethering application that allows you to use your iphones 3g capabilities to create your own wifi hotspot. I have tried using this on an iPod touch 4g, but it hasnt worked 100%. This has worked for me on iPhone 3g, 4g, and 4s. Basically you can connect this wifi to your other devices such as a laptop or another iDevice. Hope this helped you.

    • Za1dan

      July 28, 2012 at 5:23 am

      search google for the cracked api (eg – appname.api) and download it…then open itunes click file…add file to library and choose the file you downloaded.
      Then just sync your apps

    • KNSydia

      July 1, 2012 at 10:06 am

      Hi, Nicole. I see you were having a few problems with Siri. There are plenty of SiriPorts out there. You might wanna try http://repo.SiriPort.ru
      This is a great Siri app from cydia that allows you the same freedoms as you would have with an iPhone 4s. If your still having trouble, try getting “Sara”, Siri’s “twin sister”. I have heard its good, but have yet to try it. Here is the repo: http://isoftjsc.com/

      Hope this helps!!

    Hi, I live in a place where there is no Wifi available. I have an iPod Touch 4G IOS 4.3.3, and I was wondering if there is a way to jailbreak it with no wifi on my Windows 7 computer. If there is, is there anyway to download apps from Cydia, to my computer, then to my iPod? This would be far more easier then waiting until I get to a wifi spot, since I rarely get to go anywhere. Any help would be very appreciated.

    June 19, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Two things, I can’t find the Swype app on cydia and I can’t find the where I’m supposed the add the “source” for Installious. I go into my settings but I can’t find “Source”

    • KNSydia

      July 1, 2012 at 10:09 am

      If you mean where you enter the repo, known as the source, this is how you do it:

      Go to Cydia, Down at the bottom it should say manage, Click sources, then on the top right corner click edit, and the top left click add.

      It will then prompt you with a blank url. This is where you add your repo.

    Most of these are good for iPhone, and i have an iPod Touch 4g…

    Therefore, anything needing 3g capabilities, such as 3g Unrestrictor, and My3g, are useless and irrelevant information to my acknowledgement.

    But, all in all, great Cydia Apps. Im sure i ha most of these anyways, but the ones i didnt already have were fully functional and i found them to be very useful,
