Try reseting your phone. If the Installer icon is on your home screen, then the app worked. If it is not there, then try it again. jailbreakme.com is designed to jailbreak, install installer.app, and close tiff exlpoit. Also, if the page hangs in safari, that is it never loads past a sliver of blue in the address bar, force quit safari and try again. Force quit by holding home button until home screen appears.

Hope it helps!

I'd advise people to finally ditch that joke of an OS Windows and use Mac, as none of the apps on mac seem to have these problems :sick:

I have read that jailbreakme closes disk access to iPhone. I have also read that if you enable ssh on the iPhone, and then use a program like, cyberduck or fugu on mac and iBrickr for PC (i think, i use mac so not sure) to get files back and forth.

Did you install BSD subsystem, community sources, then open ssh through installer.app? If not, try that. I also suggest installing services.app which allows you to toggle ssh off and on. That will keep your battery from running down super quick as well as prevent you from walking around with your iPhone in read/write access mode.

I hope this helps, and my apologies if you already knew or tried this stuff.
