I am not sure you even need this step anymore with his new jailbreak. I did purplera1n and never even used those other files. So maybe they arent necessary.

On the site now is the new program does this mean that you can\'t generate a unique certificate anymore? Or what do i do now if i don\'t have it yet?? Please reply.

I did exactly as described. purplera1n.com however reloads the page but does not deliver any file. Has any of you guys managed to solve that same issue?
