    I'm having an issue jailbreaking my 3GS using Jailbreakme.com. I had no isues jailbreaking my iPhone 4, but my 3GS doesn't seem to wanna take. First there is no active sim card in it, will this cause a problem? When I slide to jailbreak, it does about 3 seconds of work then thats it. I'm also running 4.0.1 on the 3GS, anyone have any ideas I will be glad to hear them. Thanks

    Via BigBoss:

    Those of you having problems where the device sits at the purple screen forever may benefit from clearing your cookies and restarting safari:

    1) Put your device into Airplane mode.
    2) Go to -> Setting -> safari -> Cookies -> Accept.
    3) Double Tap home button.
    4) Press and hold an icon to wiggle the task switcher icons and then quit Safari using the X.
    5) Clear all Cache and cookies.
    6) Open safari and go to jailbreakme.com and try again.

    I don't get the hanging purple screen. Mine downloads the jb but as soon as it says sit tight, safari closes. I guess I'll try a restore to 4.0 and see if that helps
