I ran purplera1n RC2a and everything seemed to go well. The Freeze icon appeared and I ran it to install Cydia. Once it got to the "Finished!" point, I exited out and rebooted my iPhone 3Gs. But Cydia has never appeared. I have done this 5 times now, and still no Cydia. Any suggestions?

Be sure to have legit activated 3GS
Disable 3G if you don't have it(like T-Mobile).
Add apt.geohot.com to Cydia
Install(or Update) com.geohot.purplesn0w
Watch for success output in Cydia(actually do this step)
Wait for signal, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone(no reboot required)

I would just like to let everyone know that I am using both of these with no problems at all. I have a legit activated 3gs that I used for one day on at&t. I have been with tmobile for 5 years, I am grandfathered into the 5.99 plan. Everything works perfect, edge is fast enough for me. Wifi works, no battery issues, no issues at all. Ya, I don't have 3g but I don't need it. I am so impressed with George I sent him 10 bucks. I would send him more if I was a rich man. Thanks George you are a god.

i see its released but wheres the guide??

Ok, I swear, I'm not THAT much of a nood!! Been jailbreaking/unlocking iphones since 1.0.2 or somewhere around then...
Now switching from 3g to 3gs. Purplera1n ...awesome! ...Purplesnow.. I don't know, because I won't have a 3rd party sim to put in till I get to Paris tomorrow morning (in Toronto on Rogers now)... BUT HERE'S WHERE I FEEL LIKE I'M MISSING SOMETHING... OR POSSIBLY AM JUST BEING A DORK
I install purplesn0w from cydia... it seems to do that standard install, then I get the standard 'return to cydia' button at the bottom when it's done (not sure that's exactly what it says but you get the idea).... EXCEPT WHEN I READ THIS LINE IN THE INSTRUCTIONS, I GET THE FEELING I MISSED SOMETHING...
'Watch for success output in Cydia(actually do this step)'
Actually do this step?? I have no idea what I'm watching for or what to 'do'
... and I'm on a plane in three hours
So, and one of you clear me up real quick... you can flame me later

Three cheers for the dev team and geohot! We need them both for progress. Lets hope the pissing contest matures into a useful collaboration some day.
On a side-note, there's rather a lot of bullying going on in this forum. Feels really welcoming, y'know? A bit like high school play ground. Anyway, people, how about some support for each other rather than endless digs and abuse? Most members seem willing to help, but a select few really spoil what is essentially a great site that lots of people rely on for news and advice. I know, I know, it's great fun to abuse people when you've got the protection of anonymity, but it's time to grow up and just play nice. Kay? Kaaaay

I have a quick question, please guide me to the right one to use for unlocking. I have a 3GS that was originally activated through AT&T by my sister and she used ultrasn0w to unlock. Now, I want to fully restore the device, because I don't want all her stuff on there. If I restore it, it will bring me to the connect to iTunes screen. Do I go ahead and jailbreak it and then use Purplesn0w 2? I know that it says you have to have an activated iPhone, but does not mean currently activated, or ever activated? thanks
