If you don't know, you're probably not proxied, but click here anyway and see what it says,

How are you getting internet service? Are you at home or at a school?

If you're on dialup, you're not going to have much success. If you know anyone with broadband, you should pay them a visit, iPod in hand. ;)

(13 Mar '11, 15:25) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

im so confused

(13 Mar '11, 15:46) thornberrymonster thornberrymonster's gravatar image

may be its the host file or at the worst it could be your isp were do you live

(13 Mar '11, 15:48) konata_fan337 konata_fan337's gravatar image

could it be the fact that i still have dial up internet

(13 Mar '11, 15:50) thornberrymonster thornberrymonster's gravatar image

Are you serious???? I don't think it's going to work then.

(13 Mar '11, 15:53) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

ya dialup may be too slow to talk to the servers

(13 Mar '11, 15:58) konata_fan337 konata_fan337's gravatar image

Rofl at spockers...dial up, I nearly spilt my cup of tea then lol

(13 Mar '11, 17:06) venusanann venusanann's gravatar image

Yeah imagine downloading an ipsw on dialup, it would be obsolete by the time you got it! :)

(13 Mar '11, 17:09) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

Rofl, ah man stop it....gotta put the tea down now, it's becoming a hazard.

(13 Mar '11, 17:11) venusanann venusanann's gravatar image

Use PwnAge Tool (Mac) or Sn0wbreeze (Win). Requires a full restore to jailbreak. On the other hand, it's the most stable JB. Or you can use the obsolete redsn0w tethered JB.
