    So I jailbroke earlier with redsn0w, and right after getting all the latest updates from cydia, I decided to install winterboard...well it ask me to reboot my phone but it got stuck on the apple logo and after 5 minutes it will just turned off.

    Anybody else having the same problem. I just did a full restore but I think I would go with the other jailbrake way if redsn0w is having problems with Winterboard...I really really wanted to trust the dev team :(

    I installed a theme earlier and it put my phone into safe mode and no amount of rebooting got rid of it ! so did full restore and set up as a new device then jailbroke with redsnow and installed cydia . then i installed the latest mobilesubstrate and it went berserk and then said restarting but after ten minutes it still said it
    so i'm restoring again now and might leave winterboard off as i don't think its totally ready !

    I wasn't able to get it working with redsn0w. No problems at all with purplera1n.

    Perhaps you should restore and go that route.

    Frustrating this Redsn0w & Winterboard thing this time around. Freezing up and not being able to locate the Winterboard, after several reboots. Something just ain't right after all these different ways to JB, *my head is still spinning* like a bad sequel to "the Exorcist XIII" I'm giving it more time for JB...:eek::eek::eek:

    Yeah don't worry about following my advice. I mean it works and all, but it's not Dev Team...

    It's really not. I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary. The respring is a little different than it used to be (don't know if redsn0w is the same) but everything works as it should.

    I can't imagine why it would matter but I JB using purplera1n and then I installed mobile substrate and winterboard using SSH and it works fine.

    I installed MS first, rebooted, then installed winterboard and then rebooted. It works fine.

    This may be moot point now that Cydia has upgrades to MS and WB and I think redsn0w installed the MS automatically.

    I really doubt there is a difference between the two JBs-but maybe redsn0w is the issue?

    I have to say that purplera1n was the fastest and easiest method I ever used to JB and been doing it since my 1G iPod touch,

    Yeah purplera1n takes like 45 seconds, no joke.

    To the poster (Masterchief) looking to install winterboard and mobilesubstrate, have you tried SSH these to your phone. Not difficult.

    I think I figured out why it wasn't showing up. I had been restoring my phone from a backup that came from 2.2.1 and I had the winterboard icon in a folder from catagories...when I upgraded to 3.0 i lost all the things that were in catagories, winterboard wasnt showing up because it was seeing it in the phantom catagories file that was no longer there...if that makes sense...lol

    I made sure to upgrade Cydia's essential updates only, and then I proceeded to download the newest version of Mobile Substrate via Cydia. Once that was successful I downloaded Winterboard and all worked smoothly. I've read that it is necessary to do the updates/downloads in that order.

    BTW, I used redsn0w on my 3GS to JB.

    That actually makes TONS of sense and I guess I didn't experience it because I didn't restore a back-up I just set it up as a new phone.

    Funny, all that stress for something that really wasn't a technical issue at all :)
