  1. The one for Windows is out. It is just not working. I tried it several times and it just keeps saying on the Greenpoison client, jailbreak failed. Ugggh. Waste of time.

  2. The jailbreak seemed to work fine. I went on to install Cydia and then downloaded MyWi but now my iPhone is stuck in Safe Mode. I keep getting this message: “We apologize for the inconvenience, but SpringBoard has just crashed. MobileSubstrate /did not/ cause this problem: it has protected you from it. Your device is now running in Safe Mode. All extensions that support this safety system are disabled.” Anyone know what has gone wrong and how to fix it?

  3. it works, tried it on 2 Verizon iphones, on a 16gb and 32gb…MAKE SURE the phone is 4.2.6 before jailbreaking. I had trouble with my 32gb at first then i realized it was 4.2.5. Then restored to factory settings and updated to 4.2.6, jailbroke again and everything worked

  4. that usually happens when you install something that’s causing the phone to crash. uninstall the most current app that you installed and work your way back till its working fine. hope this helps… as far as the jailbreak goes, used this for windows since it came out on day one. has worked great for me 16g…

  5. OK thanks. I uninstalled MyWi and everything was fine after that. Then I re-installed MyWi and everything is still fine. So there was evidently some problem in that first download of MyWi. Done a second phone since then, and it’s working fine too. Both these done on a Mac…didn’t know the Windows version was ready yet.

  6. I need help i deleted the “loader” app bc it had nothing in it and now I dont know how to recover it or what i should do?

  7. i also had this problem with mywii, so i used pdanet instead…..actually works better than MyWii so far
