    Mine would not install, it would go half way before crashing. I updated from 4.2.1 to 4.3.3. Even with restarting it won't work.

    So you need to restore your ipad 2 on itunes and reinstall 4.3.3. After that, it will work like a charm

    No, you do NOT have to restore your iPad2 and reinstall iOS 4.3.3. Stop spreading incorrect information.

    Same thing's been happening when I try to JB my iPhone 4. No such problem on my iPad 2.

    Restoring does fix crashing problems, and not being able to jailbreak, its been reported that if u used the 4.3.0 leaked beta jb and try jailbreaking with the jailbreakme 3.0 released today, the jailbreak would fail, restoring to 4.3.3 fixes the problem. While restoring isnt necessary its a fix for ppl to try that are having problems.

    I think there is something wrong with the site. THe page doesn't completely load and installing Cydia crashes the browser. I just restored my friends iPad2 (4.3.3) and we have tried a fresh restore twice.

    NVM clear cache!

    How am I spreading incorrect info? I tried JB within 2-3 hrs after it was released. Nothing worked. I tried deleting cache+history, everything from safari..... retried couple of times with restarts, even hard cold boots....... nothing.

    Restoring my ipad 2 to 4.3.3, then jailbreak DID work for me. Apple makes it so easy on restoring that it takes a few mins.

    And post above is correct. I went from 4.2.1 --> jailbreak using leaked beta, then upgraded to 4.3.3 --> and now it wouldn't work with jailbreakme 3.0

    What you want me to do? Stick my thumbs up my a$$ and wait for someone to post a solution?

    With what's already there, your thumbs wouldn't fit.

    That's what you had to do to get jb3 to work. Your post indicated that's what everyone had to do, which is incorrect information.

    Plus, your first post did not mention you were running the buggy, leaked version. Of course, a restore is required to remove that.
