    Turning off location data tracking on iPhone 3G, original iPhone

    Have an iPhone 3G or original iPhone, no longer getting iOS updates from Apple, and wondering how to turn off location data tracking? Apple recently fixed the tracking issue in iOS 4.3.3 but devices that haven't been updated were left out in the cold. While some people argue that jailbreak may make your device more vulnerable, there have been a few instances where jailbreaking closed exploits before Apple did.Jailbreak dev Ryan Petrich has again came through with untrackerd. Anyone running an iPhone 3G (which stopped getting updates with iOS 4.2) or original iPhone (which maxed out at iOS 3.1.3) can install it and not worry about data tracking. Hit the jump for a quick step by step!

    1. Jailbreak your iPhone if you haven't already.
    2. Open Cydia and tap on Search.
    3. Type in "untrackerd".
    4. Install untrackerd.
    5. You're done! It simply runs a script in the background that will dump tracking information.

    Again, anyone with an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 running iOS 4.3.3 does not need to use untrackerd as Apple addressed the issue in that firmware update. This is simply useful for those folks with an iPhone 3G or earlier that won't receive the fix. If you have an iPhone 3G or first gen, try it out and let us know if you have issues in our TiPb Jailbreak forums or in the comments below!
