    gr81mgbgt,

    With all due respect, are you sure you wish to attempt this?

    After all, you don't seem to be able to even find the software, links nor understand how this works.

    Good Luck ! :rolleyes:

    Is PurpleRa1n only for Windows?
    I can find the Windows icon on their website, but I can't run a executable file on OS-X.

    It's only for Windows for now which is why there is only a Windows logo there.

    As far as i know, there isnt a jailbreak released for 3GS yet. They are waiting for 3.1 to come out.

    Its out. Its just by Geohotz and not the Dev Team. The Dev Team are waiting for 3.1. Geohotz obviously got impatient.

    Okay, so I ran Purplera1n on a Windows machine, got Freeze, but when it says Installing Cydia... and then it says Finished!.

    Yet, there is no Cydia anywhere on my phone (Even using Spotlight)
    And the bar stays at about 80%. It doesn't finish. Ever.

    EDIT: Sorry, I forgot that you have to respring your springboard every time :/.

    Geohotz is a guy who's been doing this stuff for a while. Its trustworthy, but the Dev teams stuff is even more trustworthy.

    Maybe you take this as a sign, and stop.
