    Default redsn0w crash when trying to downgrade 6.15 bb
    I have a 3gs, IOS 4.2.1 and ipad bb 6.15, just found out there is now a BB downgrade, but every time I try to downgrade redsnow will crash after going in DFU mode while processing...

    here is what I tried:

    always run as admin,
    try xp sp2 and xp sp 3 compatibility mode as well as windows 7 compatibility mode (i have win 7 sp2 64 bit)
    try setting affinity to any cpu I have in task manager,
    try setting prioryty to real time,
    removed winterboard from cydia as I read someone was successful after doing this,


    What I do in redsn0w:
    load my original 4.2.1 ipsw,
    go in jailbreak and select downgrade ipad baseband,
    go in DFU when ask to do so,
    after iphone go in DFU, software say processing, nothing happen for about 20 seconds then windows say that the program had stop responding

    what am I doing wrong?
    please help

    There are issues with the 3GS and the year/week of manufacture which could be causing issues with redsn0w. Just google the issue I can't remember where I seen it but there is issues if it's after a certain date of manufacture. Check that the redsn0w tool u are using is compatible with your 3GS as it may not be.
