I have a 1.1.1 iphone that i am trying to jailbreak. I have restored it and gone to jailbreakme several times and nothing ever happens. The website will load for a while, then kick me back to the home screen. I wait for a long time and nothing happens. I reboot it, and still nothing. Is there something I am missing?

It works better if you attempt it over a WiFi connection as opposed to Edge.

I had an unlocked 1.0.2 with anysim which i virginized using the idiots guide.. then i used the *#307# to activate my wifi at home, then did it again to access jailbreakme then when i went there it crashed safari, took me back to the "slide for emergency" screen which i did then let it sit at the dial pad for ~1 hour but nothing happened.. Tried it 3 or 4 times, even tried restoring and doing it again but no love... :mad:

If it keeps displaying nothing on the home screen, what I did was re-run the appsnapp installer from the site and it worked.

Good luck.

Ive restored an run it more times than I can count. Nothing works. It will load in safari for 30 secs to one minute, close out to the home screen, and then nothing for a long time. I let it sit for a while then reboot it two or three times, and still nothing. Is there anything I am missing?

Hey, heres how i got mine to work, thought it might be helpful for you:

1. restore to 1.1.1
2. do the *#307# to activate wifi then do it to get to http://jailbreak.toc2rta.com
3. it will crash safari and go back to slide to unlock screen
4. plug into computer wait for itunes to recognise it then close itunes and ctrl+alt+delete ituneshelper.exe
5. download and run CARNAVAL (it tell you to do step 4)
6. will guide you through process of activating
7. you should now be activated and have installer.app
8. add the source that has anysim 1.1.1 (i think its like blurgle.ca or something.. google it)
9. unlock (i think you might need to install BSD which i did anyway but i dno if its needed)

hope that helps!

Im not trying to unlock it, just open it up for jailbreak. I dont want to mess with the activation, seeing as how im already going on cingular.
