    so its the phone that is crashing not windows or redsnow?

    i assume your using rednow 0.7.2?

    i used 0.7.1 and there was no option to add either icy or cydia during the install.

    i also used windows beta 7 build 7100 (non RC1).

    no the redsnow program crashes when i pick to install icy and cydia, but doesnt crash when i pick cydia.

    it wouldnt even go through the jailbreak with both picked.

    now it has without a problem, so i dont know if its a glitch in the software because i wasnt doing anything special

    you're right

    I was having the same problem. Unchecked Icy, and the problem was solved. I am on 32 bit vista btw. Anyway, thanks!
