    I sync my iPhone 4 to my MBP, but I want to jailbreak my phone here at work, where I have Windows.

    Do I need to do anything in iTunes/will I mess anything up by jailbreaking on a different machine than I sync my phone to?

    Thanks.

    Getting the device into DFU mode instead of recovery mode seems to be the culprit for a lot of people. Are you sure it's in DFU mode?

    How can I tell? I'm following the timer exactly as greenpois0n prompts me to...

    Actually, it is in Recovery mode because I have to use Umbrella after it fails to kick me out of Recovery mode.

    Note that even when you don't do anything with iTunes (sync, etc) you do need iTunes installed on the computer (latest version v10)

    Had similar problems with Greenpois0n (went into DFU mode no problem, but kept getting failures). Limera1n worked perfectly.
