    I JB with GP earlier with no isssues. Of course, like everyone else, I don't have cydia. I know that there are apparently no issues with running both, but from just a logical standpoint (NOT a knowledgable stadpoint, as I dont know much), would it be easier on the phone to just wait instead of clogging the phone with both? Seems like their website can't be down toooo much longer right?

    Why don't you just use redsn0w to install cydia?

    Yeah I guess I will, but that was my question. It just seemed it would be 'cleaner' to download it through the loader when things clear up on greenpoisOn.com instead of having 2 sets of JB software. But again, I admit that I don't know much about this stuff, and if there's no advantage to waiting, I'll just use redsnOw. Thanks for the response.

    You aren't putting any jailbreak software on the phone by using redsn0w at this point. You are simply adding the cydia program to the phone. Make sure to uncheck every box on redsn0w except the cydia one.

    I guess to be clearer I should say you aren't jailbreaking with redsn0w, just using it to stick cydia on the phone.
