quick question...i have a 3g that i jb with redsnow...everything seems to be working fine, been running it for bout 3 weeks...only problem i'm having is push is not working correctly (IMs don't come thru all the time, it will work for a few messages and then it stops til i reboot or resinstall the IM app) anyways my question is, is there any benefits to re-jb the phone and using PR, instead of redsnow? is it really even nessary to do that? and if i did decide to restore fresh again (i do this every once and awhile) should i just use PR this time?

Purplera1ned my 3Gs and it worked flawlesly! My problems came after installing categories... Did a restore made it rain again and installed sbsettings before anything else. Installed categories again and it kept putting me back in safe mode and a reboot would not fix. Turned of categories in sbsettings and all was well. Also I seem to have lost mail settings after installing categories

I jailbroke with purplera1n rc1 on my work computer windows xp sp2. The jailbreak didn't take until my 4th or 5th try. Since RC1 didn't have some sort of patches required for Winterboard to work, RC2 was released and I simply jailbroke over the rc1 installation. That seemed to solve my mobileterminal issues and whatever other unknown issues I wasn't aware of after I did that. It was nice NOT having to restore just to rejailbreak I must say. The second jailbreak attempt with rc2 on my home computer went smoother with just one attempt windows vista home premium 32bit. I am an AT&T customer so no need to hacktivate. However, I have captured those files needed for future jailbreak/unlock for when I sell this phone a year from now like I do all my iPhones lol. Push notification works no probs.
A few things seem to be out of wack though. I'm not sure if these are app compatibility issues or purplera1n rc2 issues. But it seems that I cannot mod my keyboard theme at all (stuck with Apple's stock keyboard), my lockscreen battery does not appear when I am in a different theme (in this case Eraser2). The battery for that theme appeared before on my 3G so not sure what's going on there. I was having some issues with my Bluetooth but I shut the phone down and restarted, it seems to work but I've never experienced that before.
I was reading that redsn0w v0.8 is more stable than purplera1n rc2. I don't feel like rejailbreaking again if I have to restore. If I could simply use redsn0w and rejailbreak over my purplera1n installation then I'd do it if there will be no issues. But maybe I'll just wait until update 3.1 My phone works well for the most part and my minor gripes aren't really worth the extra hassle I foresee with my proposal to rejailbreak with redsn0w.
iPhone 3G[S] 32GB Black
purplera1n rc1/rc2 jailbreak
Can someone answer this simple question? I've seen it talked about but I am VERY unsure...
Scenario: Already jailbroke with purplera1n rc1. Jailbroke again with purplera1n rc2 over rc1 (did not restore). redsn0w for 3GS was released.
Question: Can one rejailbreak over purplera1n rc2 with redsn0w 0.8 (windows) without having to restore?

The internet stuff you've read that says redsn0w is more stable than purplera1n are not quite correct. Most of those articles are comparing redsn0w to purplera1n RC1, not RC2.
The theme problems you are seeing are due to Apple changing some of the file names and locations for the keyboard and SMS images. Others have reported BT problems with unmodified phones, so I believe that may be an Apple problem too.
If everything else is working, I'd stay put for now.
