    My mom made my account "limited" so i had to go into safe mode and make a new account with admin privilages just so i could download libusb.

    Now i hear people are having problems with it messing up there computer...but they are all on macs or vista...will installing libusb mess up the computer on xp?? I really need to know because i dont want to download it then have to do a system restore....my mom would be pissed lol. Is there any things i should take note of or do so i dont mess up my computer? Oh, and once im finished jailbreaking, can i uninstall libusb?

    Thanks,

    Justan

    Before you install libusb, right click on it and go to properties, go to the compatibility tab and check the compatibility box, make sure its set to xp

    I ran it on XP, I didn't run into any problems and it jailbroke just fine.

    You can't notice it even if it is; it doesn't drastically impact your computer or anything.

    What method are you using, justan? If it's shorty's you'll need a cmd prompt C++ addon packet before it'll work.
