The same thing happened to me unfortunately. It stopped midway, but Cydia was installed. When I visited the website again, it said it had crashed, but when I swiped to begin the process again, it informed me that it was already JBed and could cause problems if the process was done again. So unfortunately, I didn't want to take any chances of it being bad so I restored and did it all again. *Everybody* should have backed up before JBing. Sucks, but I just don't want to take any chances that the process went wrong somewhere, and my phone is buggy.

Wait your phone is buggy!?
how so?

Also here are some screens on what i'm talking about...

The resolution is/might be crappy cause i sent it via email and i pressed medium. instead of full.

Anyways what would you guys recommend?

Have you seen any bugs lately? or had any issues with it.
So far with me none. I installed some cydia apps
as you can see i have five icon dock.
I installed SBSettings also.

I mean everything is working..

(I never got the "Cydia is now installed on your Home Screen... Enjoy" message after the jailbreak) did you?

Or possibly this is some glitch?

No I don't have any glitches or bugs at all, everything is working, etc. I don't plan on installing a bunch of crap on it though, but I do have SBSettings and MyWi installed.

I didn't get that message either, but Cydia was installed and has been working just fine

But yeah, like the other poster said, if Cydia is on your home screen and working, then it's done - pretty simple

Did you have the "make my life simple" (or whatever it was) thing? I did that yesterday and today it shows that my SHSHs are on file

Is this jailbreak reliable or not.

I mean server issues and failed installs....Ominous warnings and having to restore and try again.

I know everyone wants JB, but the delivery of this seems farsicle.

Alright sounds good to me... I'm like a new noob again with this whole iPhone JB thing. I use to know a whole lot of thing about this. ever since i sold my iTouch, i had no clue after that.

Yeah i just checked cydia, mine says it's on file now.
What's it for anyways? (sorry for the noobish question)

Everything seems to be fine. It's reliable. but apparently there's that PDF exploit, but there's no worries actually. Cydia has this PDF warning installer. So just install that. and everytime you try to visit a website, that's trying to download a PDF. it'll warn you. :apple:

Also thanks to everyone. :) :apple:

The same thing happened to me, and I got the exact same screen saying it may cause problems to JB again. I actually took the time to restore and JB again without any problems bc I didn't want to take any chances. But it seems that others have used it fine without any problems. =)
