Shaun's instructions for getting this all installed aren't that tough to follow, and he makes a good point: as long as you sync your photos off your iPhone (using iPhoto, Aperture or even Image Capture from your Applications folder), you likely don't have to worry about borking your iPhone when tinkering with stuff like this. A simple Restore from iTunes will bring your iPhone back to factory defaults and replace (almost) all your data, including contacts, media and calendar appointments (this is where backing your photos up comes in handy: for some odd reason, iTunes doesn't do that for you). If you ultimately try this, you too can have a sexy little Mint on your Home screen, either in that Dock-like bar at the bottom or juggled in with your other apps.
Last but not least on your journey of Minty iPhone bliss is, of course, a stylish wallpaper. Inman created three Mint walls for the iPhone
with a variety of backgrounds, ensuring there should be at least something for everyone (on a sidenote: the bright green wallpaper on the left can be a little bright at night, even with the iPhone's auto-brightness turned on).
That's about it for melding the wonders of Mint and your iPhone together, at least for now. From what I've read on Shaun Inman's blog
, he caught the iPhone fever hard after trying to withstand its powers (resistance is futile Shaun!), and with his talents for web programming, who knows what else he can come up with. For the time being, enjoy a more minty iPhone that unfortunately won't do much for your breath... but at least it can help you stay on top of your site visitors while away from your computer.
