    Hi guys,
    I tried the purplera1n jailbreak, and it rebooted it into restore mode, and now it is stuck!
    Any ideas? I do NOT want to restore!!!

    Thanks!

    try holding down the home and power button, that usually resets the phone when it is in recovery mode

    Close out iTunes and Purplera1n. Restart Purplera1n an reclick make it ra1n. Wait for your iPhone it should have the Purplera1n logo on it soon.

    Nope that didnt work either, it was completely stuck. Even the old ZIphone and TouchFree didnt kick it out with their functions. I finally restored it

    should have heeded the warning before trying to use the jailbreak. Good you got it restored anyhow

    Are you sure you followed my directions? It worked for me. Plug in your iPhone. Run Purplera1n and click "make it ra1n". iTunes should pop up and say its in recovery mode. Wait two minutes or until Purplera1n says "waiting for iphone to reboot" or something like that. Close iTunes and Purplera1n. Rerun Purplera1n with your iPhone connected (it should have been this whole time) and click make it ra1n. Wait. Your iPhone should display the Purplera1n picture. When it boots up run the app just put there called Freeze. After Freeze is done Cydia should be there. If not, reboot the phone. Done.

    Ok, this happened to me. You just need to find a windows XP machine and do it.
