    Try again later. Sometimes jailbreakme.com doesn't work quite right. (By the way TONS of posts like this in the past (I can think of at least 5 this month!) Do a fresh restore if it doesn't work throughout the day.

    LOL Just stay calm. It will work. Jailbreakme.com is kind of touchy. The file might be down or something. I have had this same issue before. If you have already restored, just try again later today. You will get it eventually!

    I hear you Tim...jailbreakme.com was iffy for me as well. Does anyone know the exact variables are with jailbreakme.com? Why is it touchy, and works sometimes, and sometimes it doesnt? It's worked for me...but when jailbreaking my girl's phone, it never took. I just resorted to 1.02 Whyyyyy?

    you may have already seen this but cant hurt. i found this awhile ago, cant remember where thou, but it worked for me:

    Yeah, you heard it right! The best guide ever, just buy an iPhone from AAPL or ATT and sit there in the store and unlock it - the simplest it can ever get! You need WiFi btb!!No Mac or PC required! Unlock the iPhone straight out of the box! Save the money from investing in Unlocking software and use it wisely
    1. Slide for Emergency calls, dial *#307# press call, now use the back button on the top of your screen to remove *#307# , now enter 0 , press call, press answer, press hold, press decline. Now you get to the contact list.
    2. Push contacts and add a new contact and type in “prefs://11″ as web-address and “http://jailbreakme.com” as an additional URL.
    4. When you tap “prefs://11″ you can now select your preferred WiFi gateway. I recommend an open WiFi network
    5. Now press the home button and move the slider to the dial-pad. Repeat step 1 till you can access contacts.
    6. Now you can go back to the contact list by Dialing 0, push call, then answer, then contacts, then hit the “http://jailbreakme.com” web address you typed in.
    7. Scroll down to the bottom, click “Install AppSnapp”. Safari will exit and you’ll return to your springboard. Wait for the phone to reboot. Your phone is now jailbroken and Installer.app is ready to be explored (If it refuses to install, try installing it till you see the downloading thingy on the screen! It took more than 6 attempts on one of my friend’s iPhone!)
    Well, at this stage, your iPhone should be activated partially - Cingular should work just fine! All the other networks should do a little tweaking to use your iPhone as a phone!

    LOL I am in this boat now too
    I wanted to do a fresh restore in order to do the 1.1.3 jailbreak and have had success one time with jailbreaking 1.1.1 after a restore. Something went wrong with 1.1.3 so I did another restore. Have been trying for an hour to jailbreak the phone again :/
