    I have the option of jailbreaking on a windows or a mac, which one is easier or do I have to do it on the computer that has my itunes library on it?

    You can jailbreak on any Mac/Pc and later sync with your iTunes library computer.

    Mac option definitely seems to be easier than PC ones to unlock iPhone. I followed modmyiphone and didnt have any problem et al. The only precaution not mentioned is to make sure you uncheck "open safe files after downloading" in safari preferences.

    EDIT: BTW I m assuming you dont have 1.1.1 on your iPhone. If you have 1.1.1 then it`d better to wait a few days until there are better options.

    Windows is by far easiest. The program does most of the work, all you gotta do is what the readme tells you, which is like six steps, and none of them really involve in-depth code. Just make sure you have all the criteria met (Net Framework 2.0, Latest iTunes, and the install folders, also look up your ip adress first so it will be a breeze later on.

    I'm doing it now, had to restore my ipod cuz I had to switch computers (stupid wireless). But I"m doing it now...
