Hi,

I've owned a 3GS for a long while now and had it jailbroken since day 2 of owning it. I've played with jailbreaks a fair bit on the 3gs, I wouldnt say I'm a pro, but not exactly a complete newbie either.

I've been trying to jailbreak my new iPhone 4 that I received a few weeks ago to no avail. I've had Greenp0ison say the jailbreak is complete but I've never had the loader icon appear. I'm currerntly overseas however and don't have access to an international microSIM so the one that's inside the phone atm is inactive. However I do have a wifi connection? Could this be the cause of the loader icon not loading?

I read someone suggested using redsn0w, I've downloaded redsn0w for mac v0.8, is this the right version to use? Also it's requesting the ipsw firmware to be used so I'm downloading that atm. Will the redsn0w cydia install cause the jailbreak to be tethered or...?

no, it wont be tether, you can use greenpois0n for untether and use redsnow to install cydia(recommended) i don't see any issues so far by doing that.

Like Yangky said, it wont be tethered. One thing I need to ask though, have you restarted your phone? (Hold down home and power buttons till the shutdown slider comes up) and reboot? That might bring on the cydia app icon then. If not, just use redsnow to install cydia. That should work. :) Hopefully :)

Have a gooden and good luck!

Try to rejailbreak it again. I had one last night that did that same thing. I rejailbroke and it then showed up on my springboard.

Good Luck! :)

Alex, you got a 3g, 3gs or 4? If it says your greenpoison jailbreak is complete you could try running Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 for Windows found http://cdn.nspwn.com/redsn0w_win_0.9.6b4.zip and load cydia that way. :)

Good Luck!
