    When it gets stuck, unplug the USB and then plug it right back in. This usually forces it to continue.

    Zup AZ.

    well, don't have to shift click. but when you run redsn0w it will ask for the .ipsw and that's when you point to the one you download.

    It will work, you just have to keep trying. We're not sure why a small percentage of phones react like this but it will work.

    Only other thing you could do is use a different computer.

    sometimes you just gotta pay to play lol

    But you can do it!, just take your time.

    be sure to completely DFU restore, back to a stock firmware.

    then try to jailbreak, following the thousands of tutorials here, on iclarified or on the dev team blog.

    if it says waiting for reboot for more than 5 minutes, just unplug the cable, from the phone, and plug it right back in, literally for only less than a second. good luck.
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!
