If you are experiencing problems while jailbreaking and your phone gets to the final step at which point it tries to reboot, then after what seems like forever just goes back to the activation screen and you are stuck with a phone that is still not jailbroken I have a couple solutions. Also if you are just having problems in general this jailbreak should work every single time if you are thorough. These are some steps or key points that you may accidentally skip: Make sure you are running the most recent version of itunes 9.2 In my experience I skipped the step where you have to click shift+restore and find the 4.0 firmware and restore it with one they give you. I had updated it using the update button so I thought I didnt need it. Once I did that it worked. Try a different computer that has worked for me once before because I think my old computer had a corrupt itunes When you are putting it in DFU mode make sure you time it correctly and even though sometimes you dont need to, hold down the home button until you get to the ramdisk logo For THOSE people who think they can use this process to unlock a 3GS and keep complaining about having problems here is the two reasons why: 1. 3G firmware starts with 1,2 and 3GS starts with 2,1 MAJOR DIFFERENCE and they dont have a jailbreak for 3GS 4.0 yet. 2. You are an idiot refer to reason #1

Anyone having problems with SEVERE battery drainage after installing iOS4.0? Or is it just me? im getting like 1-2% of battery loss every minute! and im not even doing anything! furthermore, the iphone is burning up like a hot potato! Im facing this problem after Jailbreaking on the latest redsn0w (the one with the ibooks fix) and now im doing a complete restore and jailbreaking WITHOUT multi tasking this time (although i dont know if multitasking is the problem - its worth a shot) if anyone has any solutions to my problem HELP ME PLEASE! email - thanks!

Hey I am trying to jailbreak a 3g 16 gb with itunes 9.2 on 4.0 firmware and it gets all the way to the end where it needs to reboot and it takes forever then once it finally does reboot it goes back to the connect to itunes screen... Ive been trying for 4 hours please help

When I get stuck in that 'connect to itunes' loop, I use blackra1n to get out of it. Google around before proceeding.

Bogy - June 22, 2010 at 2:18pm
Well, if you read before you jumped in, you would realize that it says in the first line, NON MC, but of course am betting you didn't. But since you already got yourself in this mess, i will tell you what to do! turn the ipod off completely....connect it to the computer with itunes open....turn the ipod on with the power button and home button, as soon as you see the apple logo, let go of the power button, but keep holding the homebutton. and restore that way.

I have a ipod touch 2g and after i follow the steps and went to DFU mode the pineapple man doesn't show up just a black screen that does nothing, what to do now?

Spirit will only jailbreak iphones that have been activated with at&t. you need to activate your phone in order to jailbrake it and unlock it.
macman - June 22, 2010 at 1:56am

Hammid - June 21, 2010 at 11:43pm
Works PERFECTLY on my iPod touch 2G. Love it<3 Was very easy :D Dev-Team <3 Puzzles me a bit why Apple didn't leave the option for both home-screen background and multitasking available, since it's barely slower than before.
Dope - June 21, 2010 at 11:14pm

Ruzbeh Mistry
Ruzbeh Mistry - June 22, 2010 at 9:26am
3.1.3 or 4?? it'll be better to set it up as a new phone to prevent unwanted files from coming back onto the phone and the new os .......... but if its something important u want back then u have no choice. in my opinion new phone .......
eddy - June 21, 2010 at 10:44pm
i ran redsnow, IPSW for OS 4.0, after several minutes my phone booted back on my old 3.1.3 firmware .. did i do anything wrong??
maybe - June 21, 2010 at 10:46pm
I think you have to first do a normal install of 4.0 and run Redsn0w, but I am not sure. Wait for the tutorial.
Rob - June 22, 2010 at 2:41am
Im having the same problems i have been fighting with this for 3hrs already cant get to install. Please advise
