Can't Jailbreak iPhone 4
I just updated my iphone 4 to the 4.3.3 firmware but cannot re-jailbreak my phone. First I tried Jailbreakme several times but I do not get a Cydia icon. The icon initially loads and disappears. I read in another thread that many are having this problem so then I tried Redsn0w. But for the life of me, it just won't go into DFU mode. I tried about 10 times but it keeps saying "device not detected." Are there any other ways to jailbreak? I would appreciate any help at all. Thanks.

You should follow instructions to a T.
- make sure phone is off and plug it into computer run the redsnow .exe and follow instructions.
Many people i found don't follow instructions or have too many assumptions.
Also few have trouble if the device is not clean... i.e do not restore backup on it until after the jb.

the tools are made so its easy for everyone one should follow instructions... and i find doing a fresh restore (blank phone) before jailbreaking would work almost 100% of time.
Putting in DFU via redsnow is a breeze... sometime when i need to be in dfu i just follow redsnow (even when im not jb'ing).

Did anything sync over that Griffin cable? I'm wondering if its just because its broken or faulty. My original cable slowly worked less and less till one day it just became a 50/50 shot of getting a connection from my PC while the Griffin one works flawlessly every time.
