Hi, I just tried to follow youre recommenation but unfortunately it failed with the message the he could not connect to the Ramdisk he build.

First of all I updated my iPhone via iTunes to version 2.1 . Afterwards I tried to do the jailbreak as recommended and failes as described above...

Anyway the iPhone is still usable, so I don't need the jailbreak neccessarily.

Any suggestions why the tool behaved like this?
