Soooo I just updated to 3.0.1. on my iPhone and it unjailbroke my phone. So i go to purplera1n to rejailbreak it and it gets stuck on the picture of the purplerain guy leaning on the ipod...i tried it 3 times and it always gets stuck there.. Is this because it willnot work on the 3.0.1?

thinking that was the case i tried to rejailbreak my phone with redsn0w... i go all the way through everything and am waiting for the phone to reboot and to see the little pineApple running emblem which would tell me its been jailbroken... nothing happens it just goes to the stock unlock screen and cydia nor icy are in my phone.. wtf? Grrr so many problems lately.. any ideas..

purplera1n does not work with 3.0.1 and geohot (its creator) has announced he will not be trying to make it work in future either - see HERE for his blog post on that.

redsn0w (Version 0.8 I believe) does work for sure with 3.0.1 - but you'll need to have the 3.0 firmware .ipsw file on hand and use that when jailbreaking with redsn0w after you've updated to 3.0.1.

But you restored to 3.0.1 right? You need to be on that prior to running redsn0w.
