    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...

    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...

    Things that drive you crazy about the iPad

    Regarding point 4 (which also kinda links with your points 3 and 2) I never thought of that but in a way you're right. The fact is that iOS is a pretty new OS on a "computing type device" but in most ways its hugely backwards compared to what PC operating systems can do these days. An on...

    transferring files from Linux server

    Glad to help. As a linux user you may also want to consider jailbreaking the device to get access to the low level parts of iOS. Its a toss-up if the extra functionality is worth the effort of jailbreaking, I've been happier since I did it because I now have access to the file system...

    Things that drive you crazy about the iPad

    Of course, and I have but I'm technical. What about the simple user? They're just restricted, and what's worse, they never know it, so much of the potential is lost...

    Things that drive you crazy about the iPad

    Well, that sounds nice in theory but I find the reality to be very different. Its not about file system access its about flexibility. Having what amounts to a separate file system for each app essentially dooms you to a single path world - it restricts your flexibility. Suppose I use one...

    Things that drive you crazy about the iPad

    Things that drive me crazy (and will probably drive me to a non iOS tablet once they become good): file sharing, file sharing, file sharing! Yesterday I wanted to do some very light touch editing to a picture from one of my folders on my PC. I have an app for basic image editing on the...

    transferring files from Linux server

    Hi mark As a linux user you are probably more technically sophisticated (and demanding) than the average so you have some additional options open. Basically the iPad does nothing in terms of file access and sharing out of the box (except via USB, which for a wi fi device is kinda "fail"...

    Airvideo vs streamtome vs zumocast

    Correct - I didn't realize that before but I tested it and it does give better quality. In fact it allows bitrates up to 2.5Mbs, which is higher than he others and it does give noticeably better quality (talking about HD only of course). What's more, it gives you an option to just "play" mp4...

    Airvideo vs streamtome vs zumocast

    I have used all three. If you mainly need video, which I think is the case for most, go for air video. The server is pretty stable, the login method over the web is smooth (though personally I don't use it often for reasons of security) and the playback is fine. It does place a pretty heavy...

    Why Apple should end it's fight against jailbreakers

    Theft of services? That's totally wrong! People pay for a service and it's insane to think that Apple or AT&T or whoever can tell them how they are supposed to use the data service they pay for. It's ten times more insane to believe that this is theft! At best its interference with a corporate...
