Could I use this for an iPod Touch 2G? If the /sbin is that different, I can get an iPod Touch 2G one from another iPod.
I hate to ask for more of you, but, if it's needed, could you allow the option for selecting the /sbin that you patch with?

First of all: thx for all your work and time you spent for solving our problems! Also not to forget spending less time with your family and your bed ;-)
so back to topic:
had at the beginning just 1 Iphone screwed up: my fathers!!
Iphone 3GS 16 GB
..finally with your version released today it worket perfectly!!!
so because I'm a bit a technical freak (that I don't have to say the word nerd!!) as well I just wanted to know if my own Iphone works perfect...
so I finally made all the new updates from Cydia an of course RockYou (there is no way to buy courage except at the bar ..hihi..) and then I rebooted my Iphoe....and....it also was stuck at the Apple Logo...
I just made the same procedure as about 10 minutes before and it again worked perfect (btw: also Iphone 3GS 32 GB, 3.1.2, blackrain, locked....first sold charge in Austria..yeah...so old bootrom!!)
so thx alot you're great an donation is on it's way!!!!
regards from Austria (this small country in Europe without the kangaroos!!)
p.s. is it ok that I linked you onto the forum of one of the best austrian/german websites for Iphonequestions BENM.AT - Österreichs iPhone, iPod und iPad Blog - News, Tutorials, Downloads, Apps, Games, Zubehör, iPhone, iPod, iPad ???

I installed B33jsn0w through MAC, that now results in boot up to apple logo for 4 mins the crash and reboot. Where before I would boot up to apple logo, crash then shut down. Seems I am now in a bootloop? This troubles me!
I know you want more information, (geek language) but I'm not too shure how to provide it. If anyone can recommend any programs for this I'd appriciate it.
I see that brattygirl72 has had success with her phone, we were having similar issues (turn off at reboot) so there must be some variables that I need to provide.

05-15-2010, 07:04 AM #227Best yet solution!
ALL I CAN SAY.
You have saved me so much! THANK YOU, i cannot describe how i feel, SERIOUS! I am so delighted.
Everything works! Perfect.
I was unsure about using this until i have read everything and made a decision. RESTORING IS NOT A OPTION, and i trusted this application 100%, only thing that i was worried about is the Yes/No part if my phone newer batch but i selected YES.
Am using my phone as i was using before everything seems to be working, BUT ONE QUESTION do i have to do anything else to it?
I tried to connect it to the ITUNES and it says : This IPHONE can not be used because the apple service is not started ?
THANK YOU AGAIN,
ITS AMAZING WHAT PEOPLE CAN DO, ! THANKS.

first of all: Thx for all your work iBeej
Im one of those who are stuck in the reboot loop after applying the first fix,
curious about what happens and why i turned on Verbose Mode.
Unfortunately i was unable to recognize anything but noise...
so i grabbed a cam and made some Pics i would like to share with you.
Looks like launchd is the first process to fail, which makes sense since launchd is the first /sbin to be called...

If you want a safe place to download older IPSW files, please use Dev team approved sites such as iCommunity (they link directly to Apple repositories)
iCommunity - Jailbreak information at a glance
Also, iBeej, I wanted to help out in hosting these binaries for you, so I've mirrored them on my site. Feel free to verify the MD5sum on those files if you wish. I haven't touched them.
Here is the article I wrote this morning warning users about the issue... http://tony.mattke.net/2010/05/15/ip...g-devistation/

just rename the extension fom .zip to .ipsw
Thank you so much for all your hard work! I hope you are getting some sleep. I couldn't hang last night. I fell asleep in my chair at about 2:30 am! Your latest version ran through all the way to reeboot but it still boots to the apple logo for 10 or 11 seconds and then continuously reeboots. I wish I could give you more info... I thought I might be able to help a little more at the beginning of all this, but I was quickly over my head. I'll be on messengewr all day if you want to chat. Thanks again!!!

Just wanted to share my results. All goes ok and through, but after the final reboot, it gets back to shutting off after 10-13 sec.
05-15-2010, 08:49 AM #240

Hope you guys are able to find a fix. iBeej, contact me if you want help mirroring any more software.
