iPhone 3G on 3.0 JB'd now frozen... Thoughts?
I upgraded my white 16GB iPhone 3G from 2.2.1 + JB to 3.0 + JB. I was able to sync, install apps, etc.; when I was trying to add a new source to cydia my iPhone froze, I held down the home button for 10secs then the power button for 10 secs, neither did anything. I restarted the phone by holding the power and the home button until it restarted.
Now it's just stuck on the startup "white apple" screen. Sometimes it appears to restart, i.e. the apple goes away, but it comes back in short order. This happened once before and I DFU'd, re-upped FW3.0, re-JB'd and here I am. This is really aggravating and now I've been using the iphone for a couple of days I'd really prefer not to have to do that again, there are text messages and memos I would like to save...

Fair enough... I wonder what's causing it though-this is the second time and both times it's been when I'm upgrading/updating something with Cydia. Makes it kinda pointless to jailbreak when it crashes permanently and for unknown reasons. Am I the only one this has happened to???

No further problems
I think this has been my third time trying but I'm not seeming to have problems anymore. I went to Cydia and immediately installed the updates and it seems to have stabilized. Installed Winterboard, etc. and while there are occasional program crashes everything else seems stable. Fingers crossed!

Mine has just done this this morning. I was upgrading catergories in cydia. When i pressed "restart springboard" the phone froze. The Apple logo kept doing the same thing, constantly trying to reboot. This is the first time this has happened through Cydia to me. Maybe some of the new upgrades are conflicting? Either way i have had to do a restore. I'm annoyed now though because i'm on windows, and i can't find a jailbreak for Itunes 3.0.
I usually use BigBoss, does anybody now were i can find jailbreak tools? Or has it not been released yet?

OK, time to make this a bit more interesting. I'm having the same issue, and I understand that a restore can fix it. However, my laptop died on me two days ago so I've got nothing to restore from until I get it fixed. I can use someone else's itunes, but is there anyway to fix the phone without wiping it out? I'd kinda like to not have to lose everything until I fix my own computer. Thanks!
