    Did you follow the example on the first post, it should be there. Perhaps re-read it.
    Keep trying, you'll be good to go.

    Worked well for me. It got stuck and wouldn't go into DFU mode, but worked after the third try. Thanks for this. LOL, I didn't update to iTunes 8.2 first, so doing it now.

    Spoke too soon. Phone isn't activated. Doing again and activating prior to using redsn0w. Hopefully it works this time.

    First off you were reading the wrong thread if you have a 2G.

    Can anyone help a noobie? The 3.0 ipsw download link at in the guide is not giving me a workable firmware file. I download it, extract it, and get "file not found" Shouldn't there be an square icon with a musical note? Ive DL'd six times now from the MMI site and still no luck. Anyplace I can get the iphone 1,1_3.0_7A341 restore.ipsw file?

    Ok, I have a question.

    I just bought my first iPhone on June 10th. I upgraded to 3.0 the day it came out. I just backed up and restored my iPhone as recommended in the OP. I am now at the iPhone setup in iTunes. My question is, do I setup as a new iPhone or restore from my backup which I just made?

    Thank you.

    is your iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw end up as a iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ZIP File? if so all you have to do is rename it to .ipsw and redsnow will be able to find it..do not extract that zip file..it won't work

    Yes but does it matter which one I select before using redsnow? Or is either one fine?

    Does anybody know whats up with the hanging "Waiting for reboot" screen? I'm going to wait another couple of minutes and see if any progress is made; however, I've already been waiting for about 5 mins. :/
