point it towards a 3.0 ipsw. not a 3.0.1 ipsw. it should work fineThe beatings will continue until morale improves.

Well in the About it does say 3.0.1...

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 itThe beatings will continue until morale improves.

12-12-2011, 12:57 PM #9Hi,
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?
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?
