    Is it important to put the E*&@ # or whatever it is. I am a normal user and love jailbreaking. I jailbroke my 3GS with the first purplera1n when it came out, and yesterday I restored and used RC2. Will I run into problems with restoring or something without entering whatever its called into the box? Thanks.

    The text box is to capture the ECID info which will be needed for JB on 3.1 and above firmware. You need to enter your iPhone's ECID in the text box and download the file that will be generated and keep the file for future needs.

    the file generated by the purplera1n will only give you your iBSS and you need both the iBEC and the iBSS according to the dev team in order to jailbreak in the future. iclarified has a tutorial on how to get both if i can find it ill link it here
