What is a reasonable time to wait for reboot? Nothing has happened for several minutes.

Can I manually reboot?

Thanks

i noticed that if you click FINISH on redsn0w before the phone is totally done jailbreaking, it will never finish, happened to me. Had to put it in recovery mode and restore 3.0 with iTunes, then rejailbroke it , waited for phone to complete JB, then closed redsn0w. Wrkd fine

don't worry about it..the same exact thing happen to me 3 times..my iPhone would stay with a white screen while redsnow would say WAITING FOR REBOOT...now..when i unplugged my iPhone and turn it back on again...it was normal...i didn't restore or nothing...looked like redsnow didn't do anything cause the 3 times i tried it...i turn my phone back on again after putting it in DFU mode and it would start normally...when i tried it the 4th time it booted up normally..just don't worry about it just try it many times and remember...if it stays with the white screen..just turn it off and ON again...it should start normally like mine did...hope this helped

It appears I got through Redsn0w okay, but I can't confirm. Phone says I need a SIM to register the phone with iTunes. How do I get around that? I have a TMobile sim, but the phone hasn't been unlocked yet. Any tips?

hopefully you made it through redsn0w. Unplug it power down and power on, if you got the CYDIA icon you are ok, now youre in the same boat i am. I cant get a connection via wifi to click on cydia to download and run ultrasn0w to unlock it.

since it IS JB'd, any ATT card should work in it, so if u know someone with ATT and a data plan ask to use their sim. then u can unlock it with cydia's ultrasn0w.

No AT&T here in Cheyenne WY so finding one to borrow will be problematic. Any other ideas out there?

Not true. The prepaid AT&T SIM's won't work on 3.0.

Can you open Cydia on WiFi and install ultrasn0w and then put your T-Mobile SIM in?

The phone is stuck on the screen that says insert a SIM to activate the phone. The only other option is "slide for emergency"

I had the "waiting on reboot" problem. I managed to get redsn0w working running windows in safe mode; it worked perfectly then.

thats what ive been trying to do, but every internet cafe i hit , it says im connected, but cydia wont load, no connection. There must be some kind of settings I'm forgetting. My last option is to wait til july 5th when Gevy2 turbo sim comes out. It fools the phone to unlock it for any carrier, then i'll use cydia to do the soft unlock. thats all i can think of
