iPhone 1.1.3 WebClip hack - Speed Dial on your home screen

Posted by natetrue 7 years ago

So the new iPhone 1.1.3 firmware allows you to put icons on your home screen for websites, but I know many of us want to put phone numbers on there for a Speed Dial screen.

I've put a little hack together that lets you have a (somewhat) speedy speed dial icon. There's no jailbreaking required for this one - it can all be done using Apple-approved Web Clip creation.

Check the images below for a walkthrough.

HOWTO: Install SSH on your iPhone *DEPRECATED, use iBrickr instead*

Posted by natetrue 8 years ago

These instructions are deprecated - it's much easier to download iBrickr and install the dropbear and binkit packages using the Applications interface.

Instructions left for nostalgia sake, though:

These instructions work with the latest 1.0.1 iPhone update.

Right now these instructions work for Windows. A Mac OSX version must be made by someone else, but the translation is fairly easy. The sshify-windows.bat must be replaced with a file that contains equivalent Mac OSX commands.

These instructions MUST be run on a phone that has already had Jailbreak 1.1 run on it. For instructions on that see the custom ringtone tutorial.

This tutorial is dead easy.

Step 1 - Download Nate True's iPhone SSH kit.

Step 2 - Extract that to a folder somewhere.

Step 3 - Run sshify-windows.bat and follow the instructions carefully.

Okay, Step 3 is more steps but they are laid out plainly.

Step 4 - Connect with SSH! You should be able to use an SCP client like WinSCP to put more files from the latest compiled binkit.
