so, what about iPhone 3Gs?????????????? 🙁

I’m also a iPod Touch 2g MC model User! When are they Done?????? hopely soon i guess…
My wife’s 3G is on 4.1 and jailbroken with Redsn0w 0.9.6b2. When I install Bootlace and then open it, I get an error stating, “Kernel does not match any compatible jailbreaks. Jailbreak with redsn0w or PwnageTool and try again.” I jailbroke it again with redsn0w and the same error occurs.
Anyone else having issues?
Never mind. I found a thread that talked about issues with Redsn0w 0.9.6b2. I used 0.9.6b1 instead and it works just fine.
I tested it after JB with RSbeta 2 😀
Yuppy Successfully patched with redsn0w 0.9.6b1
if i want to remove again android then what we have to do…?
Go back into Bootlace and click on the iDroid tab at the bottom. Then select “Remove”.
I cant uninstall ANDROID can you tell me the steps for uninstall it please..
too bad its not working on 3GS … nobody uses the 2G/3G anymore …
I do, smartass.
If most people were smart they would use a 2G or 3G cause they r the easiest to jailbreak, and usually except the most programs

when i downloaded the bootlace then when i am in step 5 lts error then i quickboot my iphone 3g wont turn on plz help me! what should i do?
Same happened to me last night.
After clicking Quickboot my device got bricked, not even turning on at all.
I had to put it in DFU mode and restore the firmware again, as I could not find a smoother way to fix it.
How did you put it in DFU mode when it wasn’t turning on?
Never mind, I figured it out 🙂 . I’m going to try it again. Lol
I also got the same issue
Iphone 3g , jailbreak with 3.1.3 redsn0w
Phone went dead after step 7 …had a error but ignored it before hitting Reboot.
My phone is no more powering up! completly bricked.
HOW did you DFU!??
Ok, you need to enter hardware DFU mode ,
Plug in wall charger and press 10 sec power , release all ..nothing will happens and then replug in pc with itunes and do the usual DFU and magic will happen! voila!
plug it to pc with usb cable,hold power button for 3 seconds,then hold power and home button for 10 seconds and last hold the home button for max 15 seconds and you are in dfu mode
it worked for me 😉
