    Exclamation RE: Jacobzking process for Windows???
    Can someone make a process with these instructions by jacobzking for Windows??????

    Sync and pray
    Sync your iPhone with iTunes. You may lose all of your information if something goes wrong, so it's a good idea to back up.
    Create Symlink
    Visit and jailbreak your iPhone. When it's finished, you should have on your home screen. If you already have Installer, you don't need to do this step.
    Plug iPhone in and open iTunes. Make sure that you have the "Update" button available in iTunes before proceeding.
    Open up Installer, navigate to the "Tweaks (1.1.1)" category, and install "OktoPrep".
    Upgrade to v1.1.2
    Download the 1.1.2 Software update/restore package from Apple. If Safari unzips the file, grab the original from your trash and remove the .zip extension so that it reads iPhone1,1_1.1.2_3B48b_Restore.ipsw
    In iTunes, hold option and click "Upgrade". At the prompt, select the iPhone1,1_1.1.2_3B48b_Restore.ipsw file.
    Once upgraded to 1.1.2, close iTunes.
    Download iPHUC and friends from Rapidshare
    Extract the contents so that iphuc, fstab, and iphonefs are all on the Desktop
    If you don't have libreadline, download it and extract the zip to your Macintosh HD
    Open located in Applications>Utilities
    Type cd ~/Desktop and hit return
    Type ./iphuc and hit return
    Type getfile disk iphonefs/disk 314572800 and hit return. This will take about five minutes so grab something to drink in the meantime. Once complete, there will be a file named "disk" in your "iphonefs" folder
    Add .dmg to the end of the file. It should end up being disk.dmg
    Double click the file to mount it
    Open the newly mounted Oktoberfest3B48b.UserBundle drive and open the "etc" folder. Replace the fstab file inside the "etc" folder with the supplied fstab file.
    Download AppTapp Installer from Nullriver and place it on your desktop.
    Control click "AppTapp Installer" and click "Show Package Contents". Navigate to Contents>Resources. Copy from the "Resources" folder over into the "Applications" folder inside Oktoberfest3B48b.UserBundle. Do the same for libarmfp.dylib, placing it inside usr>lib instead of Applications.
    Unmount the image and feel free to close any open Finder windows.
    Back in Terminal, assuming that you've kept iPHUC up and running, type putfile iphonefs/disk.dmg disk/ and hit return. This will take another minute or so. When it's finished, reboot the iPhone and close Terminal. You're jailbroken!
    After the phone reboots, activate with iTunes and uninstall "OktoPrep" using Installer.

    I've been thinking a lot about this.
    The major problem in that method which requires a Mac is the mounting of the DMG file to modify its contents. This is obviously essential and obviously difficult to accomplish on a Windows machine.
    So there are a couple of ways I think we could proceed:
    There's always the various tools out there like dmg2iso that can convert the DMG to an ISO image which is read/writable with Windows. However, ISO to DMG is something I'm not so sure about.
    Then there are programs like MacDrive that can mount and interface with DMGs on Windows but these are paid programs and it's not practical to make everyone buy software
    Then there are little apps similar to MacDrive that provide a little R/W with DMG files.

    If we can obtain the source for a program that can interface with a DMG, or embed such a program into a bigger GUI which can also take care of the iPHUCing and all that, we might just have an automated solution.

    EDIT: Also, it occured to me that we could have someone patch that Oktoberfest DMG on a Macintosh and distribute it to the Windows people. Then it's just a matter of putting it on the iPhone with iPHUC. However, I'm not sure if the DMG varies from iPhone to iPhone or if it's the same for all of them.

    Of course, this is all just theory. Rest assured I'm working on it. Please send any details you have on this to [email protected], it would be very helpful.

    I'll keep watching this thread.
