Ok so i bought an iphone today (uk from the carphone warehouse) and i paid (i know silly, but i didnt have a clue) to get the details of how to unlock well semi unlock the phone so i could use my 02 pay and go sim.
so the phone comes out of box with 1.1.2 and i have follwed everything down and can now get onto the 'springbox' screen
so far so good, then i says to click installer then tweeks 1.1.1 then ok to prep then install.
so i do that then it says now plug in and set up a name for it and it says im running 1.1.1 so far so good then i click update your iphone to 1.1.2 and wait for it to install etc. but then the phone re-boots and i have the itunes logo and the usb lead screen with 'slide for emergancy' in different languages at the bottom and itunes goes to the store to activate. and now i'm supposed to run jailbreak so i click 'jarilbreak.jar' but it says my iphone isn't connected (which it is) if i un-plug i can no longer reach the 'springbox' screen just the itunes/usb lead screen
Please help someone i know its long but im sure you guys no what your on about

"and now i'm supposed to run jailbreak so i click 'jarilbreak.jar' but it says my iphone isn't connected (which it is)"
After this, simply unplug your iPhone and plug it back in. If jailbreak.jar doesn't continue, run it again.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

Since you're using a PC, are you double clicking on the jailbreak.bat or directly on the jailbreak.jar file? PC doesn't recognize it natively, so you have to use the .bat file.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

i tried clicking on the file 'windows.bat' but then a dos window opens then closes faster than you can blink.
so i just asumed i had to click the .jar file
is this wrong then ?
