    Don't put your phone in DFU mode. Just have it turned on and fully booted.

    did you turn your virus protection off before doing jailbreaking? the virus protection may kill the Ireb.

    I did find out what i was doing wrong.

    It turns out that the cause of the whole problem was my custom boot logos!

    Unlike redsn0w, sn0wbreeze does not check if the boot logo is valid or not, in other words sn0wbreeze only checks to see if it is in the right size (320 by 480)

    I figured this out b/c i tried to jailbreak with redsn0w but it would not accept my boot logos (while sn0wbreeze did accept them). So i fixed them up and redsn0w accepted them.

    Then i go the idea it was probably b/c of my boot logos and i was right.

    So always check if your boot logos are valid by using redsn0w

    Maybe you should inform iH8sn0w about that. You could be helping a lot of people.
