    I followed the instructions to a T, but I'll try again. Could it have anything to do with installing both Cydia and Icy?

    i got as far as putting it in restore mode. currently, it is uploading the ramdisk. I get all the way to the end where is says "done." after that the screen stays on but all black. then, it turns off. when i turn it on no cydia.

    can someone do my a favor and explain the following; i donwloaded redsn0w for windows. I have instructions in redsn0w to hold the power button, then the home, and then release the power button. on this article there is another step to disconnect the usb cable and hold the home button. i'm following the instructions but no go. please help!

    Half way through install it gave me a error and windows shut down the program.

    Second time it worked.

    I used both purplera1n and redsn0w on this one...why?

    Purplera1n left my phone in recovery, and since redsn0w requires it to be in recovery...well I just ran redsn0w and it worked.

    I completed the JB on my 3GS and everything worked fine, however, when I installed Winterboard my Cydia and winterboard icons are faint icons of exsisting programs.

    This JB does not slow the 3g S⃣ down at all. I noticed personally that Backgrouder did however make the phone lagg very very slightly, but other than that the phone runs great
