    point it towards a 3.0 ipsw. not a 3.0.1 ipsw. it should work fine

    you already have 3.0.1 on your phone. redsnow just jailbreaks whatever is on your phone. there is not enough of a change betweent he 2 to make a difference to redsnow. if you have 3.0.1 on your phone point towards a 3.0 ipsw. it will work. try it

    Hi,

    Attempting to jailbreak an original iPhone (2, I think... NOT a 3G/3GS)... Downloaded Redsnow, build says it's 0.9.6b5, but am getting the "Unable to recognize IPSW" error with all versions of the firmware I try - maybe because I'm trying to use it with a 3G/3GS firmware file?

    Have tried:

    1.3.1.2.7D11_restore_IPSW
    1.3.1.3.7E18_Restore.IPSW
    iPod2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ISPW (from this site)

    What am I doing wrong? Prior to this I force-restored the phone while connected to iTunes, which updated the firmware to whatever is most-current as of today (Dec. 12, 2011). I am NOT currently running iTunes in the background (do I need to be)? If so, it's updated as well.

    Just trying to get this &^%$#@! old iPhone running as an iPod for someone. Can anyone help?

    Thanks!!
