i have vista... not mac. I tried restoring iphone using "Shift + Restore" But says software is not compatible. so i just restored and updated using itunes 8.2. I wasnt aware of a new red snow until BEVA 922 pointed it out. so im gonna try that and cross my fingers and hopes all goes well.

I've been trying with 0.7.1 all weekend. and im not exaggerating. And it hasnt been working. I can't update on iTunes doing the shift and restore. it keeps saying not compatible. so im forced to restore and update using itunes. at a lost for words right now. bee stuck all weekend. no joke.

i downloaded that restore stuff but when i try to use redsnow to browse it and i couldnt find it
06-22-2009, 12:42 AM #247
well make sure u have the stuff and the folder in desktop, when u get to redsnow and try to find the files click on the desktop on the left and then everything on desktop would appear and click the folder that u put download it to
did u give up ladytech?

SO i did everything right.. but maybe i messed up along the way on something!
after i jailbreak and everything goes good.. do i restore the phone again using my back u files?? it says that i would need them later on! also
i logged on to a Wi-Fi and thought i was gonna be able to get on cydia when i log on it keeps timing out for some reason!! and sometimes it wold just go back to home screen. the signal was more then 50% and then when i tried to log onto the app store wouldn't log in..i've logged in before so it remembered everything but still didn't log in. besides that i went to safari and still nothing...
Let me know any feed back or if any one else is having this problem! PLZ thanks!

well i got it on my desktop but i just dont know how to extract that file to make it work. and redsnow work fine but just that restore file not working
06-22-2009, 01:27 AM #250
when i DL everything i put it all i the redsnow file! makes it so much easier to find it. so before you start redsnow put the
and when i mean the redsnow folder is just open the first folder that on ur desktop and put it in there don't put it where the exe. is!

Well did you try deleting it off you computer and then re downloading it..maybe it could be cuz your using vista or are you downloading it with firefox? maybe that could be it!

Help please...I have Iphone 2G 8gb, Itunes 8.2, Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 I am currently logged in as the Administrator, i even selected run as Administrator on Redsnow but still doesnt work for me. I have the correct .ipsw file (iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw) and the bootloaders all downloaded using Firefox. I get to the last part of the redsnow where its says DONE but my phone just wont boot open. Its stuck in the background trying to boot up (dim light). Ive restarted my pc and restored from itunes several times Any other suggestions? I dont have any other computer btw.

Excelent work guys, great guide and works perfectly!

Thanks DevTeam and OP for redsn0w and this excellent guide.
I now have my 2G iPhone JB and unlocked on FW 3.0.
The only issue I had was "Restoring" to FW 3.0 through iTunes. I would always get an error after about 5 mins (can't remember the code). I got around that by restoring to FW 2.2 then after that completed successfully attempted a restore to FW 3.0 again. this worked and I could then use redsn0w to JB/unlock.
I guess I should have put the phone into DFU mode before attempting the restore. So thanks also to blkcadi for his post (quoted below) - I will remember this for next time.

Seems like moving it to another PC with a fresh install of iTunes and a new USB port all worked well = now unlocke and activated.
Seems like its just moody on Vista!
Thanks for an awesome app @ dev team.
