Thread: iPhone crashes upon reboot...is a discussion within the
redsn0wforums, a part of the
Jailbreak / Downgrading / Upgradingsection;
Okay, I am not sure if this has to do with redsn0w or ultrasn0w, but here is my problem... I am currently jailbreaking/unlocking a friends 16gb 3G on 3.0 software......

Okay, I am not sure if this has to do with redsn0w or ultrasn0w, but here is my problem...
I am currently jailbreaking/unlocking a friends 16gb 3G on 3.0 software...
I jailbreak using redsn0w 0.8, everything is okay, I ad ultrasn0w, works fine, crashes on the reboot after installing Winterboard.
So we come to the conclusion he really might not even use it that often, so we restore and try once more, crashes on reboot of ultrasn0w being added.
Try once more, works fine, Cydia installed, some other Cydia apps, ultrasn0w installed and rebooted perfectly...
Make test calls, everything is good(3g is turned off , he calls me today, said he shut if off, and when he turned it back on, same issue, Apple Logo hangs, then spinning gear shows up and freezes.
So once again, I have to restore, jailbreak and unlock so he can use the phone.
I am not going to tell him to just never shut it off, because there will be some apps from Cydia that will require a reboot.
Any suggestions as to the problem?
I am running redsn0w from a Mac, in case anyone wanted to know the information.

Did you restore from backup or set up as a new phone?

I did restore from a backup. I am going to retry tonight as a new phone.
I have read on the net about downgrading to like 2.2.1, and then reupgrading.
Im not sure, I've just never had this kind of problem
I will get back with you once I try the 'new phone' set up.

Yes, never restore from a backup.
That's what causes almost all of the problems people are experiencing.
Going down and then going back up won't help anything if you're still restoring from backup.
And if you set up as a new phone, all that firmware changing is unnecessary
