    Great work George - thanks!
    Same for me, no go on Win7 RC x64 or Virtual XP Mode.

    I really didnt want to install itunes on my parallels virtual machine as i have it running on an SSD with limited space and like to keep it as trimmed as possible, but i just did it and it does work

    So, I've been in "done, wait for reboot" for a while now... Not sure if it's going to work. On XP SP2(?).

    Try just killing that app window (with upper right x) and restart and do it again. That worked for me on XP.

    Oh yeah, and make sure iTunes is NOT running at the time.

    Guys, quit complaining about apps not working with the 3GS. it's a whole new device. Now the developers have root access they can update their apps so they are 3GS compatible. At the moment, if an apps compatible i guess its complete luck.

    I am guessing it is, since I've restored from a JB on a 3G, but this is a whole different thing we are messin with here...

    Anybody try it yet?

    i acutally like this.. i didnt start JB till 3g came out so for me was so easy... then come too 3gs... lots of little tricks too get stuff working


    On another NOTE

    GPSPHONE (game boy advance for iphone) work Better then the 3G but some intense games like Final Fantasy VI works ok but you hear issues in the sounds and music once in a while. but playable.

    SNES4IPHONE (Snes for the iphone) WORKS FREAKING AWESOME.... OMG WAY BETTER then 3g lol and no issues with any of the games that had issues with 3g lol... IT ROCKS playing FFVI on it right now with sound and no issues

    Ye, i remember i spent a good 2/3 hours hex editing (which ive never done before and never done since) just to get custom ringtones. lol

    And the slow cydia download is a mix between your rubbish internet/wireless data speed and the strain on geohots server from a large number of people worldwide downloading cydia.

    I just got it downloaded in a couple of minutes. Now to test some apps ...

    I had an issue but was due to installing status notifier, but like Jag said, let it boot in safemode & uninstall winterboard, then reboot. Now you shouldn't have any issues.

    Part two.... Everything was going just fine till I rebooted the devices a few hours later. I am no longer able to load the appstore nor itunes. Anybody else have any issues with them at all?
