Okay so yesterday i took my phone to apple becuase it was acting funny they ended up replacing the phone for a brand new one(16gb white 3g) Also i got a new laptop yesterday. The phones firmware is 3.0.1 i downloaded i tunes 8 but i downlaod it to my external hard drive and have been running off of that, i also downloaded redsn0w and the restore point ipsw for 3.0...when i run redsn0w it ask you to locate iswp but when i go to the folder that is sopposed to contain that information its empty. As i look through tutorials i see people have this itunes cube im not geting that so maybe thats the problem can anyone eleborate on how to fix this

This is for anyone that is having problems finding their ispw folder after updating to 3.0 software for vista or xp.
Using XP or Vista. you need to open "My Computer"
XP - go to the top menu and select options > Folder Options
Vista - Top left button that says Organize > Folder and Search Options
In that window you need to click the " VIEW " tab on top.
NEED TO SELECT
" SHOW HIDEN FILES AND FOLDERS "
Then unclick the option to " hide protected operating system files "
Once that's done click "apply" then ok and exit out of the window.
then go to this dir
users > "USERNAME" > appdata > roaming > apple computer > itunes >
and the folder holding the downloaded file will be there.
