    Default How long should redsnow take?
    Hi, I'm a total neophyte to jailbreaking and all forms of hacking, so please forgive my ignorance. I'm in the middle of running redsnow, and it's been at the "downloading jailbreak data" stage for at least 20 min. The bar in the redsnow window on the computer has not progressed. How long should this take? How do I know if it's still running or if it's stalled?

    Thank you!!

    Sounds like it stalled. Try running it in windows xp sp2 compatibility mode

    Yup, you just need to run it like I said. Right click on redsnow and select troubleshoot compatibility.

    Default Same problem
    I tried to run it in Windows xp compatability mode, but it always stops on the screen it says "Please wait while your device is being processed...Waiting for reboot". Any ideas on the solution.

    Default Also having problem of redsnow sticking
    Hi, I am also having the problem with redsnow sticking at the waiting for reboot stage. I tried running it with the windows xp compatibility mode but it still is getting stuck. I have an iphone 3G that I just updated to the 4.2.1 firmware and windows 7 operating system. Any suggestions on how I can get it to work? Thanks
