    Pressing the home and power buttons together but not holding takes a screen shot.. that one caught me off guard the first time I did it..
    This one took me by surprise too the first time i did it.

    pretty useful trick if you want to share a preview of a custom theme.

    It's an iPhone app in Cydia.
    Not tried it myself.

    This thread really useful and opened my eyes!

    I got one thing that i really dont understand. (and I do apologize first if this question doesnt belong here!)

    Due to a stupid mistake I was forced to uninstall my 8.2 itunes and install 9.0.1. I was sure I deleted the whole lot and cleared the bin before installation.
    But after synced my iphone with itunes (Note: i remained at fw 3.0.1!) and when i checked my bin again, to my surprise i saw an IPSW file of fw 3.0.1 in it. Who may know this one, can he/she explain to me what happened? Just curious

    But only in the iTunes directory - ipsw files kept elsewhere are safe.

    And it just moves it to the trash.
    If it does accidentally get deleted, it should be in your trash.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    simultaneously plugging in the dock cable and the headphones while holding down both volume buttons and the sleep and home buttons gives you alt+tab functionality similair to that of the palm pre.

    P.S. only works on iphone 2Gs still on firmware 1.0

    lol I think anyone who has EVER made a phone call on there iphone knows this

    Its one of the greatest features tho, I have had many touch screen phones previous to my iphone and none of them did this

    Btw the sensor is right above the headset earpiece/speaker



    On the contrary, all of the sensors are located directly to the left of the earpiece. Maybe thats what you meant, but just to clarify...

    If you press down the "sleep mode" button on the top of your phone and the "home" button on the front, you can take a snap shot of whatever is showing on your screen at the moment. The screenshot will save to your normal camera roll. Im not sure if this has been previously mentioned in the forum, but i have not seen it. I also don't know if this feature has been on earlier versions of the iPhone, since the 3g is my first iPhone.

    Thanks for your previous answer. But do you think i need to uninstall and reinstall itunes (9.0.1) now since I accidently restored the 3.0.1 IPSW file from the bin? Somehow I cant find the file now.

    There is in fact a way of escaping that awful coverflow that opens when you don't want it to. Just look on Cydia for a SBSettings toggle called 'Rotation Inhibitor'
