Redsnow freezes at third reboot...
I'm posting this as a new thread because reading the similar issues was confusing and lead nowhere. Anyway, as goes, redsnow goes to thrid reboot and just stays there....as though it's contemplating the process. i left it on overnight to see if it took longer, and it stayed there for hours. i have tried both 7.1 and 8. i have restored my phone and tried again. i have plugged and unplugged the usb a million times. it refuses to go beyond that point. i have also redownlaoded the software, that also did no good. i had jaibroken a 3g iphone sucessfully in june. the other day the screen got smashed, and this is its replacement. it's 16 gb 3gs iphone....i have windows vista. if anyone has any ideas that are constructive and conducive to being helpful, other than what has been said and doesn't seem to help, i'd be most grateful and would not be above thanking whoever is sucessful in helping me with this!

If unplugging the cable (at computer, not phone end) doesn't work then make sure you have admin rights, try disabling your Anti Virus or try booting in safe mode.
Vista does cause problems for a few people. Can you try another computer?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Make sure you are using the right ipsw file for your device.
Keep in mind that the 3G and 3GS use different files.
iPhone 3GS' ipsw file should start with iPhone2,1
and the 3G should start with iPhone1,2I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

OH man....i cannot believe i did that......thanks angie.....you know what, i did not know they had different files...i thought i could use the same one for 3g as for 3gs....so tonight i will have to track down a 3.0 3gs file (since i dont have one), and retry. does anyone know of where i could find the 3.0 file for 3gs? i'll see if that makes it any better! also ur profile icon is adorable...i forget the name of those little characters..they are fun.
btw...@ annie...what is FW?
@ confucious.... yep i tried both ends.....and i do have admin priveldges since im the only once who uses this pic....i could try my laptop, but first i'm going to take angie's suggestion....she's definately on to sumthing there. just gotta find that 3.0 file for a 3gs first...that's next hurdle lol
