Recently, the JailbreakMe website has been on and off- I don't know what's happening with the site's servers, but it's pretty clear that something's wrong. If you get a white error page when trying to access JailbreakMe, try again in 10 minutes or so. If you get a "File received was invalid" error, just keep trying. I had to try like 20 times before it would work.
