Make your iPhone UI look like Windows Vista.

In my opinion, one of Apple’s greatest strengths is the thought and time that goes in to the design process of their products. From hardware to packaging, Apple’s designs are clean, sleek and easy to use. The iPhone is no exception, it is a simple and straight forward device to use. Everything in the iPhone is laid out in an easy to navigate user interface. However, what Apple forgot to do was to include ways of applying any sort of personalization to the phone. Let’s say I’m sick of looking at an all black background behind my icons, and would like to spice it up with some custom wallpapers. Or I could be bored with the simplistic look of my icons in general and would like to apply a different theme to them. There should be an easy way to change these elements to give my device a more personalized touch.

You could keep waiting till Apple finally gets their crap together, and releases these features on their own, or you could go ahead and do what’s called jailbreaking your iPhone.

Guide: How to Install Custom Firmware on your PSP Slim (2000 series)

Some time ago after the novelty of my Nintendo Wii wore off, I decided to trade it in for a psp slim thinking I would get more use out of it. At first, looking through the available software library I was again thoroughly disappointed. Why would I want to buy watered down versions of ps2 titles that I already owned, and play them on a 4in screen? Then after doing some reading I discovered the beautiful world of custom firmware and homebrew apps. In a nut shell custom firmware allows you to run non Sony certified programs. This could range from a number of things like, different themes, new OS’s, an unlocked device for you to develop upon, and the most popular being emulators.
