    Default Newbie Help Please Jail-breaking...
    Hello all i Recently bought a Iphone 3g 8gb. Was looking into Jail braking it so i gave it ago and found it Quite easy i Downloaded my firmware what was .iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293 and used Redsn0w to Down grade and Jail break. Now my problem Started when my misuses/g/f bought one. I did the same as i did on mine but got problems the Cydia App was just pure White like it was not installed properly and the Green Phone app was missing so i Restored her iphone back to Factory settings Tried again 5x so i gave up and Uninstalled RedSn0w And Reinstalled it and did the same with the Firmware but i am still getting these problems. Anyone with any info Would be Greatly Appreciated Thank you Akka87 Ps what a Great Site

    The latest is 4.1.0 are you sure it didnt have that on it? Because the issue you are describing sounds like you tried to jb 4.1 which would cause those issues.

    Anyways what you could do is downgrade to 3.1.3 which is way faster firmware for the 3g and then jb it via redsn0w or jailbreakme.com

    If I remember correctly you first have to downgrade to 3.1.3 by holding shift and clicking restore and choosing your 3.1.3 ipsw you have downloaded. Then you use the 3.1.2 ipsw in redsn0w and go through th normal process.

    You could also just go to 3.1.3 and use JailbreakMe directly from the phone to jb it. That would save you allot of time, but in my opinion redsn0w is a much more stable and less buggy jb.

    You restore the phone first to 3.1.3 with itunes vis shift restore. Once the phone has 3.1.3 on it, you then use redsnow, when redsnow ask you to choose a firmware you choose 3.1.2 that you have downloaded onto your pc.

    Also make sure to use firefox to download ipsw files if not they will download as .zip files and itunes nor redsnow will see them.

    Is the phone in recovery mode? If so download tinyumbrella and use the kick out of recovery mode feature. The Firmware Umbrella
