i think there needs to be a offline jb method maybe? my only way to the internet is either from work (which seems to be blocking the jb sites) and via iphone tethering...

Yes, you do need an active inet connection.

ok thanks - how do i work around if my work group policy is blocking access for the app/site it is accessing? do i have to find a 'open' connection or do i have any other options?

There is an offline method. You need the Ipsw for you device and firmware. This problem has already been solved. Let me go look.

Yes, you do need an Internet connection, and no, unfortunately no solution has been found yet. The payload copying will not work.

- Greenpois0n RC5 b4
And I still stuck at gBdevList not found blah blah thing for my iPad 16GB WiFi
