You can try an update & see what happens. If it's hung up you may need to Restore.
Backups do take forever on Window. I have my 3G synced with a Macbook. It takes 1-2 minutes on a Macbook.

Tried this a half dozen times and it keeps telling me it cant find the device and check out youtube on how to put your phone in DFU mode . I even tried on another computer . I wish we had QUICKPWN to do this on . I never had problems with that program .

I thought the firmware file that is given at the beginning of this thread was what we needed . Are you saying I need to restore to it first then use it again with redsnow ?
Or do I need to totally wipe my phone and update it through itunes and then use the redsnow and the firmware file that is provided here ?
I am sure there are others that have this problem . Thanks

u guys dont extract it, go to ur folder where u placed it, go to tools and go to folder options, u will see 3 tabs, general, view, and search, go to view, scroll midway until u see "hide extensions for known file types" and uncheck it, then apply and u can see now that the ispw file says iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.zip. all u do is rename the file to iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ispw, and then it turns to a cube type icon and its ready.
basic directions, 1. download all the files, 2. then on the itunes 8.2 hold shift and click restore and u should have ur ispw zip file already changed to iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ispw. after the installation is fully restored u will see on ur iphone the emergency screen thingy,3. open redsnow and follow directions, approximately 10 mins for all these steps. just be careful and follow the directions

I have updated to 3.0 with my 3g. But my batt percentage function stays. i heard that it has something to do with the 500mb dormant space due to cydia. and i jailbroken it 2 days ago, so is my 500mb still stuck there? or i have to click restore instead of update. Please advise guys.

my mistake its ipsw, not ispw, i always get those mixed up. as long as u have the cube shaped icon u should be fine
naw u dont really need to do anything. itunes is just gonna go back to normal screen. ur iphone should show slide for emergency and the itunes cd wit the chord showing arrow to it. just run yellow snow. itunes will just recognize and a message will say the sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported. just close itunes then run redsnow. after thats done u can turn itunes back on again

so here's my problem...
everytime i try to extract i get a pop up saying that theres a file under the folder name already but there's not???
06-21-2009, 09:54 PM #217
im actually redoing mine right now cuz it keeps crashin, maybe its the programs from cydia, not so stabe at the moment, i possibly recommend waiting until the developers figure why its crashing so much and if possible solutions.
