    A few months ago I attempted several times to jailbreak my iPhone 3G. Both times after doing EXACTLY, and to the point of, every step I always came out with an everlasting apple logo/plug into iTunes screen. It was horrific. I then attempted a month or so later and the same happened. After a second try that day it works! But unfortunately very glitchy taking several minutes to turn on, several minutes to load GOOGLE. GOOGLE PEOPLE. Over wifi. Right next to the computer which loads it like BAM. Both of which were right next to my router. The screen stopped accepting input from touch rendering my phone useless(i.e. iPaperweight) I restored the iPhone 3G and haven't tried since then. I was using quickpwn. Was that a bad choice? If so what should I use to JB it and what can I do to make sure all goes well this time thru. That is if I decide to actually do it.

    Try Redsn0w and just follow the directions in the sticky thread. It just couldn't be any easier.

    Ah i thought so... Quickpwn took HOURS for me especially as I had to reload all content back onto my phone. How long will redsn0w take tops?

    5-10 minutes probably less.

    Are you kidding? So I can have this done in under a half hour? Do i have to resync all my data back to my phone?

    When you jailbreak nothing is removed.

    I'm not actually all that into jailbreaking but it sounds like an easy process with redsn0w. I would rather you lead me to the site as opposed to google whereas I could possibly be leaded into another program like quickpwn. Which is a disaster in a nutshell.

    Which firmware are you running? Do you have a Mac or PC?

    Thanks. It's always nice to e able to go here and get answers right away. Now mainly where I've had troubles is waiting on the phone to restart. Is there something like so where it could get tricky?

    You should be good. Redsn0w guides you though the process.

    Ya when I attempted this it was a somewhat sketchy process. It seemed simply but the program had bugs when telling me when to holdthis button and whn to release that button. The timer would keep going but it said the step was done. But to keep holding. Nvm that one though. Thanks a lot for your help.

    I'm unsure what you mean. If I explore or open the file it says the file is invalid

    Unprtunately no. It says the file or folder is invalid. And gives me an option. Close window. Redownload the file? Also I download the file that is not the limewire install version. If that means anything you.
