Tried 4.3.1 Redsn0w JB MANY times using all the posted tips & tricks - no joy! Always fails at Ramdisk Upload. Tried the following:
1) run in XP compatibility mode with & without Exec as Admin
2) followed process for DFU mode in Redsn0w screens - same result
3) pre-DFU'd iPad then ran Redsn0w - same result
4) reran all of the above with Redsn0w affinity set to cpu1
Also saw a reference to "later models" having h/w fix that prevents mod (???)
Running Windows Vista 64-bit HP Desktop
HELP!!! What am I missing???

I guess you and I are the I are the only two who had no AT&T service after JB.
For those if you who've successfully jailbroke, were you already jailbroken or running stock iOS? Greenpois0n was a much easier jailbreak.

So, I'll keep it short and sweet.. don't even try to upgrade to 4.3.1 (over your Greenp0ison'd 4.2.1 jailbreak) and then use redsn0w. My phone went absolutely ape-$hit after I tried that. The best thing to do is to backup your phone, clean update (shift + click restore) and then use redsn0w. I've had absolutely no issues doing it the more annoying way (starting from scratch).

I jailbroke my iPhone 4 yesterday and having no problems. I have a 64bit windows 7 system and had no problems. Just had to do a clean firmware update (from 4.2.1 jb with greenpois0n to stock 4.3.1) and everything ran smoothly. Did a hard reset after my phone went ape sh!t but works fine now. Has anyone noticed an improvement on battery life? I'll post my findings as soon as I've come to some sort of conclusion.

I used the Shift Restore on mine to upgrade it last night, sounds worked fine until I JB it, Now I have zero new mail or txt sounds. Going back to restore it on my work laptop now with the shift restore and see if that works to get me back to unjailbroken. Then I'll figure out if I want to JB from there again.

I always use Pwnage Tool and never have any problems. I just backup, sync and then start the process. I put the phone into DFU mode then open iTunes an Option(Mac) + restore to my custom ipsw. Then I restore from backup and I'm free, free, free. I much rather use pwnage tool every time it's just my personal preference.

there is obviously a security hole somewhere... the vbuliten admin should look into it.

I downloaded the zipped file "iPhone3,1_4.3.1_8G4_Restore" but there doesn't seem to be any IPSW file in it. It's rare I feel so stupid, so can someone please help me? I tried renaming it from a .zip to a .IPSW but that didn't help. Is there something I'm missing here? How do I get the IPSW file, or get the zip file I've got to work?

Ok, I'm a little new at this...
Ok, I am trying to jailbreak my 4.3.1 OS and when I download the iOS version that matches my device OS, I'm having a problem. I can save it on my desktop but it keeps saving it as a compressed zip folder so I can't find the IPSW file . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. THanks.

Has anyone been experiencing battery drain issues on their iDevices?
I seem to be on my iPod Touch 4G.
