      happened to me while jailbreaking also several times

      first of all, do a backup, reinstall the firmware to get a clean phone, then follow the instructions to the letter

      and if it doesnt work at first just try it again

      a problem i encountered are usb-hubs even with their own power source, always better to use an usb port on the mainboard

      cheers

      GEO HOT's purplera1n worked perfectly for me and I have no double his purpelsnow will work as-well. I'll be using it when I leave the country.

      Props to GEO HOT!

      I don't really understand. So if you have to insall off of cydia then you have to apply this to an already jailbroken phone?

      I am in the UK using a 3Gs 32gig on O2, I used the ultrasnow first and it works but network glitchey at best, so I decided to use purplesn0w, not good my advice would be to wait for an updated version, it would not connect to any network and even Wireless did not work, I have gone back to Ultrasn0w.

      After install, REBOOT not RESPRING. worked fine on 2x32gig & 1x16gig 3Gs's
      power up from charger, not power button too
      hope this helps :)

      I am also having a 3GS phone from the UK and my question is nearly similar but here it is: My iPhone is jailbroken and unlocked using red+ultra(sn0w) combination. While the jailbreak works fine I have some constant ongoing issues with the unlock, the carrier signal always dissapear then comes back again on random basis and many people have told me that they were unable to call me on certain times. So my question is: without having to jailbreak/restore my iPhone again, can I just uninstall ultrasn0w and then apply new unlock method by installing purplesn0w? Or do I have to really format my iPhone again and start from the beginning. Thanks.

      The best way is to do a restore from Itunes, then jailbreak, then unlock, I did this and the purplesn0w was worse than the ultrasnow, but now I have gone back to the ultrasnow all the problems of lost signal have gone.

      Hope this helps

      I think people are just being baised odoing. I have been using the ultrasn0w with no problems except for dropped network every now and then. Which I believe is just a network issue. Upon hearing about purplesn0w I tried that too and so far it working flawless. If it doesn't work for you for whatever reason please don't bash it for the sake of it. Ultrasn0w has been reported by many as bricking or not working by a lot of peopel as well. These people tried hard to get us the tools we need to unlock our iPhones to use it how we wish. We are doing ourselves no good in saying negative things about their products because we messed up, can't read instruction or whatever technical issue met when using it. Just my two cents!

      If i was you I would start all over sometimes during the process things go wrong so before u try to install anything else to fix the problem I would start all over...

      my suggestion

    • felixfelix Posts: 9

      And I would stick to ultrasn0w with the dev team never had any issue with that

      Jailbreak essentially means, hacking your iPhone to install jailbreak apps
      which are not available on the App Store.

      Unlocking allows users to use SIM from any GSM carrier. You need to
      jailbreak your iPhone first to be able to unlock it.
