i downgraded and i still couldnt get it to work. i've since given up and gone back to stock until something gets worked out.
i could unjail via INdependence, but i couldnt do anything after that.
breezy doesnt work anymore(and is oddly removed from their site)
ifuntastic doesnt work
neither does apptapp

i still cant jailbreak. All i used it for was ringtines and icon sets. However the new version of apptapp works for me with itunes 7.4
So i guess at this point all i can do is install apps with installer.app
With a cool wallpaper and the current version of summerboard, you really dont need new icons, or atleast i dont. But as far as ringtones go, im still waiting for them to become available through itunes.

having the same problem here . . . all I really jailbreak for is to change my SBDockBG2.png because I get tired of looking at the same thing for more than a week :P
wtf Apple? everything was going great untill you decided to release the new iTunes . . . that's total bull along with the $200 drop of the price. I'm extremely upset now!
09-07-2007, 12:31 PM #8wtf Apple? everything was going great untill you decided to release the new iTunes . . .
hopefully they are working on a new version of jailbreak cuz the iphone is not the same without native apps.
Does installer.app still work with the new itunes?
Are there any other ways or programs that still work with the new itunes?

I can't . . . I open up terminal and all . . . type cd phonedmg, then ./jailbreak, hold the buttons and then I get the same 'illegal' message everyone else's been getting
however Installer.app on the iPhone still works for me . . . I've gotten the new Sketches.app too. It's fun (only needs more options for color selection, brush types, etc.)
adding NES roms through Cyberduck still works for me
I didn't have iFuntastic so I don't know what's going on with that one

somebody help, im having the same problem, i try to jailbreak but it gives me the same "illegal" message
09-07-2007, 06:28 PM #12
I guess we'll just have to use SFTP
that's about the only thing that works for me at the moment . . . Mac users get Cyberduck
09-07-2007, 09:14 PM #13
Yep I am having the same problem!!!!
09-07-2007, 09:50 PM #14
Me too, I cant use Ifuntastic or Breezy or the jailbreak with terminal.... I just installed apptapp for 7.4 and higher and that was able to be installed on my phone.

I am new on this and for some reason am having the same issue. for command prompt I get the following....
[jailbreak 1.0] by ziel w/ special thanks to GeoHot and the rest of the #iphone-dev crew.
Looking for iPhone...
*** If iTunes is running, please close it.
*** Hold the POWER and HOME buttons for approximately 25s.
*** Release when the display says 'Please Connect to iTunes'.
Sending More Files...
all I want to do is change the look of the phone and add terminal so I can get command line into other devices @ work.
any help would be great !!!!
