Thread: can i jailbrake my 3g iphone with purplera1n

    Default can i jailbrake my 3g iphone with purplera1n
    Ok I jail broke my iPhone with red snow 0.7, and I have the problem with cydia crashing, I’ve read that you have to ssh and clear the files that were half updated, with is fine and good but I didn’t have ssh installed. I have tried to re jailbreak with red snow 0.8 with the same result. So I guess I’ll take any suggestions that you could have. Also have a question can I jailbreak my iPhone 3g running 3.0 using purplera1n? or is this method only used with the 3gs? Trying to avoid restoring my phone .Thanks in advance Wilson.

    I think you can access your iPhone without installing SSH with iFunBox. If you go the reJB route just make sure you're not installing Cydia and Icy at the same time during the JB. Cydia crashing is def. a result of an incomplete/interrupted download. Restoring (not from backup) and setting your iPhone up as new should fix the problem...

    P.S. I personally don't like Icy. It's a lot faster but it doesn't have everything Cydia has. Some thing are also not always updated in there...

    didnt know about ifunbox its sick !!!

    o ya incase your having the same problem this is what i did quick, used ifunbox to get to /var/lib/dpkg/updates/. I deleted all the numbered files (0000, 0001, 0002 etc) and now everything works again.
