This tutorial is useful although I found another method.The method is applied in windows using the same QuickPWN.It is lot less complex and does the work done quite fast.mod/edit links removed

worked great for my 3g now im out to get my 3gs jailbroken
08-08-2009, 07:23 PM #105
I have 16GB !phone... - it means 3GS - right?
so I have redsn0w.08 and my firmware file must be - iPhone1,2_3.0.1_7A400_Restore or iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Custom_Restore?
and why in both of them it writes me "UNABLE RECOGNIZE SPECIFIED IPSW"...
I just want Cydia - What shoul I do?

Just because you have a 16gb iPhone doesnt mean it is a 3GS. It could be a 3g just as well. Also, you need to use the 3.0 ipsw in redsn0w to jailbreak 3.0.1

Why is god's green earth does Redsn0w get stuck at the waiting for re-boot..? i Go through DFU mode... At 20 seconds the DFU starts... so i don't need to hold it down for 30 seconds... Even though I do.. Well, Ive tried it both way's... Holding 30, and not...SO the mode starts, goes to next screen.... Flashes waiting for re-boot... then the bar moves.. then its get's stuck at waiting for re-boot.
Using a 3G 16Gig... Trying to jailbrake so i can unlock.. Oh yeah... The fool put 3.0.1 on it, and i know thats what is giving me issues.
*******Update******** So check this out... I tried it again, Redsn0w, and when it got hung up on waiting for re-boot... I just unpluged...got side tracked for 20-30 min's..Sat down, and pluged it back in... guess what, Like magic the phone started upload... I use Pwnage most of the time, but This is my first red snow work over... Different!! but it works...

Yes, this has been the main issue with redsn0w since it was released. If you read through the pages you would have read that you need to un-plug and then plug back in to get through the jailbreak...:

when i jailbreak, it works until it says updating ram and then it says done, and cydia doesn't show up. Why does it do this and how do i fix it?
08-16-2009, 09:32 PM #114
Try the process again cause redsn0w sometimes messes up make sure u checked "cydia" and try again
Also did you see the pineapple while u did this?!

Cydia was definantly checked. I'm trying for the fourth time right now. I haven't seen the pineapple yet, it goes to the Downloading Jailbreak Data and then reboots with no pineapple, it just goes straight to the lock screen. I've jailbroken 3g phones 10+ times and this is my first 3GS.
08-16-2009, 09:38 PM #116
Hmmmm why don't you just upgrade to 3.0.1 and do the same prcess
08-16-2009, 10:17 PM #117
08-16-2009, 10:50 PM #118
Uhm oh then when you're jailbreaking are u putting the 3.0 firmware in redsn0w?! Uhm that won't work
08-17-2009, 06:44 PM #119
if you're talking about the one for the 3g, i tried it because the one from this thread didn't work. I'm redownloading this thread's firmware again to see if that's the problem.
i downloaded redsnow and the firmware again and no luck. I can't get this to work.
I've read threads and people have problems similar to this but I just can't figure it out.
I'm trying to jailbreak my Iphone 3GS 3.0.1 through redsn0w 0.8 and it doesn't want to work. I tried the firmware download 2,1_3.0 in the thread in Iphone news and it will set up, go through the motions and then when it says updating ram, it seems to not load, just skips it. The iphone says downloading data and stays there for about thirty minutes before it reboots to the lock screen and doesn't have the pineapple or cydia.
So, I kept looking around the forum and read a post that said to use the firmware 2,1_3.0.1 and tried to use that through redsn0w 0.8 and when i selected that firmware it wouldn't recognize it.
I've tried doing the first method 5-10 times before i gave up because Raptors said it could just be the redsn0w program. I redownloaded the programs multiple times with no luck.
I also read that you have to pull out the usb cord from the computer itself to "jumpstart" redsn0w. I pulled it from the computer during the "waiting to reboot" and also from the iphone end as well with no luck.
Can someone please help me??!!!!
