    what version of iOS is CURRENTLY installed?

    If you have iOS 4.3.3 here's a guide to redsn0w from our website: HOW TO: Use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc15 To Untethered Jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 [Mac & Windows ] | FSMdotCOM

    If you are on iOS 5/5.0.1 then try this for a little bit of insight: Redsn0w Updated To v0.9.10b5 | FSMdotCOM

    nope. all your data should remain on the device as it's just allowing the tethered device to boot up. make sure you backup in itunes straight after the device has booted though

    oh and don't for get to click the 'Thanks'/thumbs up button to the bottom-left of any of my comments if they helped

    Thats because it's still in DFU mode. You must ignore iTunes. In fact just shut iTunes down for now. Follow the guide instead
