    I just upgraded from 2.1 to 3.0 with Redsn0w without a hitch. Are you using a Mac?
    My instructions were for Mac users. However, there was an error in the tutorial.
    For Mac, it said press "shift" and click "restore" in the iTunes 8.2
    It should have said press "Option" and click restore so that you can navigate to the file iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw on your desktop.
    You have to download this file first as well as the 3.9 and 4.6 Bootloader files (check

    If you pressed "shift" and click restore you are going to download from iTunes. You don't want to do that.
    Once you have all the files in place in one folder you can do the restore then launch Redsn0w. The process is less than half hour to unlock and jailbreak
