    Anyone else have TinyUmbrella bounce in your dock then fail to start? This is on a 2007 Macbook pro (10.6.4). Strange, tried multiple sources for the .dmg but to no avail.

    Thanks I will try that. Just switched over to Windows 7 side bootcamp and it installed, opened, but does not see the phone... LOL. Got to love it.

    Make sure you drag it to the applications folder and run it from there. That was my problem.

    Tried everything with 4.00.80 version, rebooting, clearing trash, running from app folder, desktop. Some hang up yet to be diagnosed.

    I'm good with the 4.0 hashes (had them for days, maybe a week both in Cydia and on laptop) just bugged by the idea the newest version won't run on the MacBook.

    Was also my problem - I feel stupid telling people to do that, but I was that stupid to try to run it from the dmg container.

    Same deal here. Version .80 and .54 won't open on my Macbook Pro. Version .06 did. I was able to get version .80 working in Windows 7 bootcamp and saved 4.0.1 shsh's to Cydia.

    I'm using .53 which gets it done for me.

    using the latest version available, it wouldn't work for me - just bounce, bounce, bounce.

    (regardless of where I put it).

    So, I opened the container, and somewhere in resources/macosx... are two java files - you just need to run them from there (in terminal). Then it launches.

    As I'm not at my mac, I can't give you the exact location - just play around, I'm sure you'll find it... ;)

    Has anyone been able to download the new TinyUmbrella 4.01.01 ?

    Says give him a couple of hours due to a server change, but it's been well longer than that.

    TinyUmbrella PPC G5

    Looking at the FirmwareUmbrella website it talks about bug fixes for PPC and states that TinyUmbrella will run on 10.5.x or 10.6.x. I have a G5 tower and tinyumbrella downloads with a do not enter symbol over it and trying to start it I get a message stating that it does not support this architecture. Is PPC support no longer available?
