Unfortunately, I don't know anymore than you do. But the greepois0n site says uploading next to windows so I'm pretty sure it's done, just getting put together. I'd "guess" today.

Allyson Kazmucha says:

For those of you windows folks waiting, this is the page that should show a download. I'll keep watching as well and post up as soon as we've got a link but here's what you want to watch...

I knew their was a reason I liked your posting even though it just raised my anxiety.

NevadaScott says:

I think its important to add that you will want to take off your passcode. I ran into lots of problems before i removed it

Alli says:

Paul says:

Can I jailbreak if I am using exchange service through my work?

tasmms says:

I had to remove my Exchange account and turn off the password. After that, no issues with the Jailbreak. Then I just set the Exchange account back up.

Paul says:

Thanks... Appreciate the fast response!

Dante says:

Maybe they are holding a windows release for a very simple reason.... Just the MAC users took a tool on the servers and all, what would the windows users do when the windows version is released.
So I guess..... To provide everyone with no issues... Or I'd rather say, minimal issues, and not pressurise the servers too much, they took a right step to hold the windows and Linux release.
I guess they would do that once the pressure from the Mac users cool down. :)
A hearty thanks to the Dream Team :)

Matt says:

If i jailbreak using a Mac, can I sync my iPad to a Windows OS? I was thinking of borrowing my dad's Mac just to JB my iPad, my laptop is running on Windows

iPhoneDon797 says:

This jailbreak or some Cydia apps messed my Music app up on my 4S. I can select a song and push play but nothing happens. As for apps I have the basic Winterboard, SBSettings, and Activator. And, yes, i tried a full reboot and still have the bug Anyone else have this same issue?

iKev says:

Ok, am I missing something? I've been trying to jailbreak since this was announced yeterday. I plug my phone in, launch Absinthe. It detects my iPhone running 5.0.1. I click the "Jailbreak" button, and it says, "Beginning jailbreak. This may take a while..."
And that's where it all stops. I'll let it sit for thirty minutes, and then it typically force-quits with some kind of error page.

Major_BuzzKill says:

The Win release will not be uploaded anytime soon due to the immense pressure on servers. It will take another 2-3 days before MILLIONS of 4s and Ipad 2 owners are done JB their devices.. the ones that are JB right now are the ones that have freneticly follow Devs progress with the will be the ones downloading the tool by word of mouth

Chris says:

It's available now, thanks for your insight.

Major_BuzzKill says:

AFTER things have settled will Win users be able to sownload it..

Major_BuzzKill says:
