    downloaded purplera1n from GeoHot's site. first updated iPhone to 3.0.1. now ran purplera1n. got GeoHot's image on iPhone (3GS) but won't exit out of safemode. tried launching iTunes (of whice i have version 8.2.1.6). tried to reboot PC (with Vista) and disconnected iPhone, relaunched iTunes.

    iTunes now won't recognize iPhone. want to do a restore and go back to pre-JB. what am i missing? i have a brick on my hands with GeoHot staring at me

    You tried to use purplera1n on 3.0.1? If so only redsn0w works with 3.0.1

    purplera1n does not work on 3.0.1, Geohot has twittered that he does not know why and also twittered the next app from him will be a month or so from now. Stick with redsn0w

    Enter recovery mode on your iPhone
    here's a quick little how to:
    How To Put The iPhone Into DFU Mode

    Then you should be able to restore the OS to 3.0.1, then use redsn0w to jailbreak since purplera1n doesn't work with 3.0.1. Best of luck, let us know how it works out for you.

    thanks every1. i'll try the DFU restore, then try to JB with redsn0w. appreciate the prompt replies. i'm frazzled, but know it will be correctable.

    well...after attempting a restore, iTunes gave me an error message. the partial restore removed GeoHot's pic from my iPhone. now attempting to reboot PC, restart iTunes and do Restore & Update in iTunes.

    PS-do i install redsn0w as a torrent from dev-team website? or is there another easier download option?

    meh. i'm not hip on the torrents. guess i need to figure them out before pursuing the JB with redsn0w. or i'll just wait until purplera1n gets fixed for 3.0.1.

    thanks for the help with the restore though. i'm back up and running with default iPhone.

    thanks tramain. i got the torrent file. just don't know what to do with it. and i have Limewire installed on my PC. never had any experience with torrents. never messed with BitTorrent or PirateBay, so my experience level is minimal at best.
