    ... Chill with the large font.
    I used Windows 7 64bit and it did not work. I used the RC1.
    I dual booted to XP 32bit SP3 and it worked like a charm on my first try.

    I think when he said it doesn't work for Windows 7 he meant it. However I read someone having success with Windows 7 so I'm not sure what to say.

    All I can say is, it didn't work for me, but XP worked.

    worked perfect for me on my hp mini 1000

    entire process from download to install to reboot and install of cydia and another reboot took less then 5 minutes and i'm on a bus using the tethering feature for my internet connection!


    thanks GEO

    note: got stuck on waiting for phone to boot up, even tho i had is to comatability mode on XP with service pack 3
    I think you might be a little slow. I have had no problems with this at all. Of course Winterboard doesn't work...it needs work both from the dev team AND Saurik...it's not 3GS compatible yet. Jailbreak method was flawless as long as you have patience and follow instructions.

    FYI: Cyntact from the cydia store will make the iphone go into safe mode and it wont come out of it. I tried rebooting and it booted into safe mode. Once uninstalled no more safe mode.

    out of curiosity

    does jailbreaking and using a "hacked app" make push notification not work?

    I have beejive that i purchased before jailbreaking, and then installed the hacked IM+ 3.1 with push after jailbreaking with 3GS, and although when i open IM+ it has all the messages as if it was connected the whole time - it does not send me a text to update me

    and it is enabled in the settings to receive the sms notifications. just wondering

    can i unjailbreak after installing this? or am i stuck with it?

    Default It works like charm!
    I just jailbroke my 3GS, and it work like charm. I had a problem at the beginng, but it was my fault. I did not upgrade Itunes, but as soon as I upgrade Itunes, it works just fine. Cydia needs to be installed after the jailbreake. An icon called "Freeze" will be install and bingo!

    Thank you very much GeoHotz, and everybody else!

    Default 3gs jailbrake
    So i took the plunge and jailbroke my 3gs. most things seem to work fine, although i am having a few issues. I cant get into the app store app, it just crashes same with my slingplayer app. All my other apps work fine. Also i cant ssh into the phone. Has anyone had these issues?

    Large font was meant to grab attention of the many people that pop in and out claiming W7 working fine, not represent me yelling or angry.

    I suspect, however, that what is separating people using Windows 7 fine and not working at all is whether they are using 32 or 64 bit. It might even be as simple as whether they're using 32 or 64 bit version of iTunes. I'm going to uninstall 64 bit and reinstall 32 bit now, will update momentarily.

    It's something you installed in Cydia. Like tricker3g or voipover3g or maybe backgrounder (which didn't work for me anyways)

    Uninstalling will fix it.

    did anyone try restoring with a default 3.0 after using purplera1n? can we unjailbreak?

    Lol i find funny how ppl complained that they wanted the JB too come out ASAP and nomatter how complicated it was they wanted it now and they can deal with the complexity of the jb. now that its out... theres a simple solution. Install WinXP for those that have troubles with mac/win7 or vista thats all

  17. #157
    ok thanks popdog23. i removed tricker3g and that fixed my slingplayer. but the app store still crashes. If i cant run tricker3g how will i get my sling t work on 3g?

    thanks

    I'm jealous!! I have 2 computers in my house but they are both Mac's running 10.5.7, ughh!! My 3gs has been sitting here staring at me for over a week now wanting to be jailbroken and unlocked so it can be used! Guess I need to be a little more patient. Damn it! I hate being patient! lol.
