      I've read that having iTunes open when running RC2 helps...though I have no idea how it helps. If it freezes up, or hangs while trying to install, close and restart purple rain, but leave the phone on the whole time. That worked for me.

      Jailbreak worked and have everything working I have tried.

      One thing I noticed is that if I reboot the phone it takes much longer. Is that normal?

      my t-mo coverage is excellent, the wifi is just borking a little...drops every so often. should i just leave it be for now and let it sort itself out?

      A theory is, if ultrasn0w is causing the wifi to jank up, wouldn't it be logical to just disable it until a working version? i mean as long as the wifi works well under the JB (which it has), then we should be ok 'till dev releases an update HOPEFULLY soon

      I downloaded the RC2 but I get this message saying "You already have the same file on your computer, do you want to replace it?" is the file size of RC1 and RC2 the same? I jailbroke it again after installing RC2 but I can't seemed to find any changes...after installing ultrasn0w my wi-fi is dropping up and down so often...do I have to install Cydia again after jailbreaking with RC2?

      The new one will replace it yes cause its the same name but a few bytes larger. Nothing to worry about.

      no offense to the geohot guy but the windows version of purplerain sucks. No doubt it worked the first try and i got to install cydia. but with so many errors and lack of speed i decided to restore and jb again. still same thing and my app store wont even open,neither will my skype. Wish i was as lucky as the mac users. Guess i'll have to wait for the dev team

      windows version sucks

      ^^ fail

      "no offense" and then you blast the guy who gave us a free JB? It seems to me that MANY Windows users (including me) have installed the JB with no problems. Sounds like user error.

      After I jailbroke i was having trouble with my GPS being very inaccurate (20-30 miles away) so I did some searching on google and found the GPS recalibration procedure and I tried it now my GPS is working perfectly

      So, for anyone having trouble with their GPS not working properly after jailbreaking, try the following:

      - Go to settings, general, auto-lock, change it from 1 Minute to NEVER
      - Go to settings, general, reset, reset network settings (THIS WILL REBOOT YOUR IPHONE)
      - Go outside, in a clear place with NO tree's, buildings, or anything blocking your view of the sky
      - Open "MAPS", click NO on all that wi-fi crap, then click the little gps icon, and let it sync up with the satellites (this could take a few minutes)

      Sorry dude no offense but YOU suck...This is not usually something I'd say but I had to....just dont use his free Beta JB then...did you even try to use a different machine or maybe even read troubleshooting guides? I just got a call from someone who experienced the same issues you're having on pawnage for MAC with a 3G phone. Does that mean the Devteam's tool sucks also?

      These things happen free loader, free tools yet you bash them.

      Sorry for the rant everyone else

      I was expecting it to be few bytes larger but it was exactly the same size.

      Have you installed tricker3g or voipover3g?

      Apple have tweaked something becuase slingplayer+itunes store + appstore, basically anything that requires a wifi connection will quit to the home screen if you have one of these installed.

      Uninstall it and its fine.

      The JB is perfect and if the dev-team released one the only difference would be the size of the download (it includes cydia).
