Super easy installation tutorial??
« on: November 01, 2013, 02:21:16 AM »
Hi, I'm not really sure where to start here, sorry if this is in the wrong topic. I know I need Whited00r normal - I have an iphone 3G unlocked, but I can't find a nice clear step by step tutorial anywhere on here telling me how to install/where to download it. All this lingo is making my head spin! Can anyone kindly point me in the right direction of an easy peasy tutorial to follow? I have been searching for hours. Thanks  :)

Well have you tried the Installation button on the navigation bar of the main site? Whited00r Tutorial - Installation

There are also navigations buttons for the download pages of the different devices supported by Whited00r including the iPhone 3G.

You could also read this: Whited00r 6 - FAQ & Troubleshooting - READ BEFORE POSTING!

Yes I've read everything you suggested over and over. I have to say they aren't very easy to understand or follow unfortunately. Hence my post here.

Done that, it just glosses over all the details and there are no links to anything. I'm just right now in the process of watching some tutorial videos on 123myit.com which seem pretty good. Thanks anyway.

On the contrary, it seems to give you step by step, as well as links to relevant tutorial pages which are also step by step (mainly talking about the downgrading the baseband one, which although it isn't numbered, all the steps are in order with links to what you need).  :O  Maybe it isn't loading for you properly?  Sometimes the info shows down at the bottom of the page (I had to scroll a little to see it on my screen, so it could be worse depending on the browser).

Maybe it's all very clear to you because you know what your doing but from my point of view it is as clear as mud. The steps have no details and barely make sense to me:
Step 1: 4.2.1 Official from iTunes "Restore"

This has no verbs in it.... haha! What exactly am I meant to be doing at this step?

Ahhhh...   Haha yeah. Still a WIP in translation :(   (Original text is Italian, and is being translated from it).
Use the apple 4.2.1 .ipsw and restore to that in iTunes :)

Ok no probs, think I've got it sorted now thanks. Can you please confirm that the Instagram app will work from Time Machine? I've heard rumours that it wont.

No it won't work. It won't work on any firmware you device can run either though, so whited00r is still the best option firmware wise for you.
