After Redsn0w 0.9.2 on 3gs - no change - no jailbreak?
Hello to all you experts.
After hours spent trying to research and not getting a conclusion, I could really use your expertise.
My system: OS X (10.6.2), iPhone 3gs with 3.1.2 (Modem Firmware: 05.11.07 and the older bootrom - iBoot-359.3)
Wanting to jailbreak, I ran redsn0w 0.9.2, pointed to the official ipsw for my device, and it did it's thing to the end until it rebooted my iphone 3gs. (It all seemed successful and it said the rest of the setup would take place on the iphone, so I clicked "Finish" -- though there was no more setup to do on my 3gs, it just booted as normal.)
So I look on my 3gs and I see no noticeable change. I was looking for Cydia (which I checked the box to install on redsn0w) but I don't see it anywhere. I can't see any change to my device.
The bootup screen is the same silver apple as before, and I really don't know if it jailbroke my device or not, since it all looks the same.
This is my first experience trying to jailbreak, so, perhaps I'm overlooking something, or did redsn0w in fact have zero effect?
Perhaps I need to try blackra1n, although I'd like to use redsn0w as a first option. I'm just concerned now whether I can just proceed to try blackra1n when my 3gs supposedly was just modified by redsn0w, or was it really? I'd really have liked to use pwnagetool 3.1.4, but itunes (9.0.3) just did not let me restore the custom ipsw without the 1604 error (same error when I tried on a clean windows xp machine as well)..
Thanks for your help!
