    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    Finally solved! It finally worked - I tracked down the problem to an issue with 64-bit windows where sometimes the iPad is not recognized in DFU mode. An error pops up saying that a connected device was not recognized in the middle of the jailbreak - perhaps that is the problem and interferes...

    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    Thanks if doing it from a mac doesn't work, I'll do that next. I honestly don't understand why it doesn't work on any of my systems.

    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    Next week I'll try to do it from a friend's Mac - maybe that'll work better:confused:

    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    Right click the executable, select properties, select the advanced tab and change compatibility mode to xp2 sp2 and tick run as administrator. Then just to be safe I also right clicked and chose "run as admin" from the greenpoison.exe. Update: I have just tried and failed with RC6 too!

    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    No prob, thanks for answering! Firmware is 4.2.1, I upgraded from 3.2.1 just last week. Now I'm thinking about downgrading again to 3.2.1 or 3.2.2 so I can JB and also because since upgrading I have seen no major benefits. Still I'd rather not because I know my apps will eventually stop working...

    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    Yes, and I just tried it again just to be sure. No difference:(

    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    I have tried like 25 times and the jailbreak fails every time! I follow the instructions, windows recognises DFU mode, I couch jailbreak, it starts the process, then says Jailbreak Failed. Every damn time! Then i have to restore or retry the JB, which at least manages to reboot the iPad...

    greenpois0n RC5 WINDOWS VERSION release

    I have exactly the same problem - tried it 6 times so far and tired of restoring all the time, after the JB fails. Maybe we're the only ones or maybe we should wait for a future release of Greenpoison...

    very tough time ahead 4 jbers

    Are you really going to debate the statistics of my argument on that basis?

    very tough time ahead 4 jbers

    Actually I can, they could be like Microsoft. I hate to rain on your parade but Apple also makes OS's. Always has. And the fact that MS makes only software and not hardware is incidental - there are different value models and mixes combining software and hardware to drive sales. The best...

    Linux?

    @a.don.is Firstly, no need to get nasty in response to a joke. I did say no offence intended, but I guess some people feel it's necessary, to defend their argument when they have nothing valid to say. Secondly, my job (which does not suck, thanks:) ) is to identify and develop technology...

    Linux?

    To be blunt (and no offense intended) if you claim to be doing all your work on the iPad, you are clearly not doing a lot of anything. Interestingly the examples you cited where: web, blogging, video. What does that job pay? Is there dental with the insurance package? :p I have an iPad, I like...

    Things that drive you crazy about the iPad

    I certainly hope so! I mean it's actually sad that this is the nicest piece of hardware that I've ever owned, but I can't wait to get rid of it so I can move outside apple's infuriating "Walled Garden". I'd actually love it if I could run another OS on it, that's how much I like the hardware...

    limera1n and future iOS 4.2 on iPad

    What about jailbreak apps? I do NOT mean pirated apps, I mean iFile, terminal, OpenSSH, sbsetting etc. I assume they get wiped by the iOS upgrade, and then you need to re-jailbreak, and reinstall them from scratch?

    Things that drive you crazy about the iPad

    @RussW @Tinman I actually think there are valid points on both sides of the argument. The idea that the iPad is a failure in what it does is clearly not true right now - but then again there is no real competition yet (there won't be until 2012...
