    Also, I've only installed the "Developer Tools" pkg in the Xcode Tools Mounted dmg. Am I supposed to install the "Xcode Tools" pkg?? I've done a fairly diligent search, to no avail. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Check your Xcode download and make sure its up to date. When I installed it just recently there were only two .mkpg files, Xcode Tools and Web Objects.

    I'd install the Xcode tools and see if you can't install redline.

    Good luck

    The xcode tools is roughly 2+gb. Does that sound like the one you installed?

    never mind. I installed the 2+gb xtools, and I'm on the way! Readline installation is successful, now I'm in the middle of Subversion install!
    Thanks very much.

    Thanks to CyberGreg for the prompt help. I've successfully jailbroken the phone. Fantastic.
