    so im following the steps on how to jailbrake 3.0beta3 on windows from the modmyi website.
    i follow the insructions step-by-step, install 3.0beta3 to the iphone.
    i get to the part where Quickpwn must browse for the ipsw file.
    i click on the file, then Quickpwn gives me this error:

    "The IPSW file you selected does not match any firmware version QickPwn supports. Either the IPSW file is corrupt, or the firmware verison is supported"

    i have the right version of quickpwn that suports beta2 and beta3 for 3.0.

    are you registered with a dev account?

    try downloading another copy of the firmware...

    I'm assuming you are not on a dev account since you should of restored in itunes to beta3 and been up and running before the jailbreak.

    I have to leave for work but ill check back on my phone to see if you have more problems
