Hi,
As you all may have noticed,  has released their new 2.2.1 firmware.
OSX 10.5.6 users Please be aware that if you want to Jailbreak or Unlock you Apple device you have to download a crack so you can sucessfully put your device into DFU mode. However I advise you not to install the crack because once you have jailbroken/unlocked your device. Your Mac will start to slow extremely and crash your system regularly.
If you wish to Jailbreak/Unlock your device please do it with a XP/Vista Computer or pay someone do it for you!

Cheers

And if you install the 10.5.5 USB libraries (which is not a "crack", just an older version of the same library) to re-enable the DFU mode, and reboot the system on a macbook, the mouse and keyboard stop working. Fine if you install them, jailbreak and then put the 10.5.6 ones back on though.

This has been the issue ever since 10.5.6 was released, it's nothing new.

Most of the options are risky and hold alot of risks.
I don't see why people should bother when they can do it on a friends PC quicky or pay
a specialist to do it for them. Or use bootcamp!

Enjoy your iPhones/iPod

It should be noted that this refers to the first time an iPhone is jailbroken.  Each subsequent time you jailbreak you don't need to enter DFU mode - only the very first time.  So everyone who already jailbroke their iPhone pre-2.2.1 will be fine to re-jailbreak with 2.2.1 as you don't need DFU.

What are these risky risks? It's VERY hard to brick an iphone. And finding a "specialist" to pay would be a hassle. As long as people pay attention to what they're doing then it's no big deal.

I agree,
But a specialist knows exactly what they're doing. And someone who is performing an Jailbreak
for the first time can make a mis-take that will damage their device.
Also DFU can be needed every time because some people upgrade their firmware without jailbreaking.
So they go from Jailbroken 2.2 to factory 2.2.1. That is also incl in the quick Pwn tutorials to do so.

You see my point?

Well, if you can find a professional that can do it for less than $40, then i'd be surprised.
I'm not paying someone up to around $199 to JAILBREAK my iphone.

If you read teh tutorials, you'll be fine. Pretty simple.

If you dont follow them, then yes, you can expect to have a problem.

If you want to advertise your site on here then you should be prepared to pay for it instead of slipping it in to the forums.

No, it's irritating.

www.hackthatphone.com has extremely explicit instructions on the whole process. If you can't follow his instructions and you stuff it up somehow, then you don't have the nous to necessitate needing your phone jailbroken anyway.

I was wondering what the spin on this thread was going to be, wanting to sell a product was the obvious choice.

And congrats for having "aluminium" mispelt to the furthest degree I've ever seen without it being a completely different word.
